Dissent Is Patriotic Un-American

My my, after eight years of Nazi calling, Code Pinking, Cindy Sheehan-whining, Chimpy-burning…suddenly objecting to your elected officials’ behavior is “un-american”

…In the meantime, as members of Congress spend time at home during August, they are talking with their constituents about reform. The dialogue between elected representatives and constituents is at the heart of our democracy and plays an integral role in assuring that the legislation we write reflects the genuine needs and concerns of the people we represent.

However, it is now evident that an ugly campaign is underway not merely to misrepresent the health insurance reform legislation, but to disrupt public meetings and prevent members of Congress and constituents from conducting a civil dialogue. These tactics have included hanging in effigy one Democratic member of Congress in Maryland and protesters holding a sign displaying a tombstone with the name of another congressman in Texas, where protesters also shouted “Just say no!” drowning out those who wanted to hold a substantive discussion.

Let the facts be heard

These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views — but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American. Drowning out the facts is how we failed at this task for decades.

How dare you Little People actually read the legislation (something that Members of Congress don’t do, for example) and object to what is being planned for you! Learn your place!

Now, it is true that “the dialogue between elected representatives and constituents is at the heart of our democracy” so in the interest of better serving their constituents Democratic Leaders are going to cancel dialogue

A day after a Russ Carnahan event led to the arrests of five participants and a reporter, University City High School — where U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill was set to hold a similar event on Tuesday– announced that the forum has been canceled.

Now she can truthfully say that “no one I spoke to objected to the Democrats’ plan.”

Vote them all out, folks. Every one of them.

    Phone calls and e-mails will still find them.

    Pelosi and Hoyer (not to mention all of the other socialistic Dhimmicrats intent on ramming this crap sandwich down our throats) can kiss my a$$.

    Pallone’s supposed to have one of these little chats in Red Bank Borough Hall, 7 p.m. We’ll se if he has the courage to face us; after all, as the senior Democrat in the House, he has plenty to say about the health care fiasco he helped author.

    Something must be done about the
    healthcare system in the US.
    A government program that takes it over is a big mistake.Maybe all that’s needed is some voucher for low income people to
    purchase their own plans,or a
    tax credit to help lower middle-class workers purchase
    what most employers no longer
    provide..It’s too complicated
    for the government to get
    involved in.

  5. I think this is somewhat on topic, but not sure. Anyway…
    A friend and I were doing considerable damage to a random selection of wines – some of them fine, some not – when we started discussing our local police farce. From the depths of my fevered memory came the observation that when coppers joined up thirty odd years ago, were you to ask them why, it would usually be to make the streets safer/get rid of crime/put crooks behind bars. Nowadays, said young copper would give you the mission statement etc as a reason. My point, and I think it is a valid one, comes from the observation that one reason comes from your life experiences, the other is imposed from above. And what happens if the second reason changes?
    I’m not sure if I’m seeing this issue the right way, but isn’t the leftard control of the media defining our morality, our sense of justice in the same way? A lot of the people who are shouting down an opposing view seem to be unaware of the philosophical similarity to Brownshirt behaviour in Germany pre 1932.

    Dear Winston Smith:I didn’t quite get the point,maybe it
    was erased by the thought police.
    When the structure of our
    American way of life is attacked 24 hours a day by the media,the schools,and
    the government,the only thing left is confusion.But,that is how they win.Fabius Maximus used
    it against Hannibal.The socialist Fabian society has
    used it to slowly destroy us
    successfully, also.They got their name from Fabius.
