At a town hall meeting last week, Rep. Wally Herger’s (R-CAca) put political discourse and facts aside for fear-mongering and partisan pandering. Of course he got a standing o from his ignorant, crazed, dittomonkey constituents.
Herger did not hold back on his opinion of the health care plan and the administration’s appointment of “czars” to head various departments and task forces.Completely and conveniently forgetting all about the War of 1812, the Civil War, the Cold War, WWII, and the Bush misadministration.
“Our democracy has never been threatened as much as it is today,” Herger said to a loud standing ovation.
The audience also loudly cheered a man who stood up and declared himself to be “a proud right wing terrorist.”At which point the DHS should have arrested them both.
“Amen, God bless you,” Herger responded. “There is a great American.”
Fuck. Nobody would have tolerated this shit when Bush was in office. Homeland Security would’ve kicked down your door and hauled your ass to prison. You’d’ve gotten audited by the IRS and put on the no-fly list. Your family would’ve been stalked by Malkin & O’Reilly goon squads. Shit, you couldn’t even wear an anti-Bush t-shirt without being called a traitor, or in some cases, getting arrested.
So who are the anti-American terrorists again?
Oh, fun fact: though he was pretty extreme in stating why he’s against the health care plan, he was kinda squirrelly in providing his own ideas:
“There are many things we can do,” Herger responded without going into specifics.What a surprise.
