Teabaggers Show True "Colors" on Capitol Hill
OK, so today’s little gathering at which literally DOZENS of teabaggers showed up to decry the horrible bill that would ensure health care to people who don’t have it, the following happened today.
Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, (D-MD), was spit on by teabaggers.
Rep. Barney Frank, (D-MA), was called a “faggot” by protesters using intentionally “lispy” voices.
Several protesters carried signs threatening gun violence. (See accompanying pictures.)
One sign says, “I didn’t vote for the socialist” and has a picture of a jackass with President Obama’s head coming out of the donkey’s ass.
These are the people who say they represent “grass roots” America. The people who would taunt, mock, and throw dollar bills at a disabled man. The people who would shout the worst insult of all at a civil rights hero. The people who would use a homophobic slur against a congressman who has done more for the common good than the entire group of teabaggers will ever do in their lifetimes, the people who spit on a congressman for the “sin” of supporting health care for people so that they don’t die for lack of insurance. The people carrying signs threatening to kill people who vote for passage of the bill.
If this is “grass roots” America… then I fear the lawn has been infested with grubs.
