My World of Parkinsonian Delights

Ohio Teabaggers Taunt Man with Parkinson's

Not since Rush Limbaugh mocked Michael J. Fox on his radio show have I been so outraged by so-called “conservatives” treatment of a person with Parkinson’s disease.

Disgusting.

Protesters on both ends of the health care debate squared off in competing rallies outside the Columbus, Ohio office of district Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy (D-OH), who says she’s undecided on her vote for the bill.

A wrinkled, kneeling man holding a stick crawled up to a group opposing the effort with a sign saying he’s “got Parkinson’s” and needs help.

“If you’re looking for a handout you’re in the wrong end of town,” one man yelled at him. “Nothing for free over here, you have to work for everything you get.”

Parkinson’s is an incurable and degenerative brain disorder that impairs the victim’s speech, motor skills and various other functions.

Another man walked up him and threw a dollar bill at him and said derisively, “I’ll pay for this guy, start a pot.” Tossing another bill at the sedentary man, he screamed, “No more handouts!”

The sign the man is holding says, “Got Parkinson’s?  I do.  And so could you.  Thanks for helping.  That’s Communist.”

Are conservatives REALLY that heartless?  Or are these folks not REALLY conservatives but just avaricious anuses who “got what THEY got” and everyone else can just fuckin’ FREEZE to death?

Are they SO greedy that they can’t feel any empathy for folks who don’t have it as good as they do?

If this doesn’t make you sit up and take notice about the true nature of these teabagging assholes, then I don’t know what will.

Shame on them.

    It’s absolutely sick and shameful, I respect how the man, though he is on the ground, remains so dignified and above in the face of monsters.

    Boy oh boy, that white collar teabagger throwing money at the man with Parkinson’s sure was showing him, wasn’t he? Big, big man!

    C’mon … what does that man with Parkinson’s expect … a cure? Not with MY money, I tell you what!!

    It’s fun to mock those who are WRONG. Fun, I tell you, FUN! Haven’t you learned that by now, Bill?

    Is there anyway to find out that man’s name, or would he consider coming forward?

    I’d like to do a video about him on YT (I know others who would like to do the same as well).

    America needs heroes like him to step forward and speak out against the evils that assail this country.

    • Well, the Columbus Dispatch newspaper filmed it so if anyone would know it would be them…

    Jeez,. Is this the party of morons, half-wits and neanderthals. Has too much starch gummed up what’s left of their sadly sparking neurons? What these douches need is a trip to the shed for an old fashioned carpet beating. This is a scene out of pre-war Germany. Just exchange the starched white shirt for a brown one, and the idiot’s baseball cap for one befitting a storm trooper. And Glenn Beck is their hero? Man, I’d love to get into the ring with Mr. White Shirt or Baseball cap. I bet they’re real tough guys
