View Full Version : "Alert the patriots: Tyrants are ruining our country!"

03-19-2010, 08:37 PM
On Wednesday, Rush Limbaugh told his listeners to call Congress and tell them to vote no on health care reform. That's no small thing. With his millions of fans, this is the kind of advice that could crash the congressional phone system.

But Rush made a critical error in his activism and it revealed an insider trick about grassroots organizing and showcased the absolute hatred some of Rush's listeners feel about Democratic health care reform. Stay with me here I promise the payoff will be worth it.

After FamiliesUSA turned off their original toll free number, it was bought by someone else who must have known about the mixup. That new person put a pro-reform bulletin on an answering machine and recorded messages left by angry and I mean very angry Rush listeners. WARNING: Many of the message contain obscenities they can be accessed by calling 206-666-6666.

You have GOT to listen to these phone calls from Limbaugh listeners about Health Care Reform. Seriously, the most painfully stupid, ignorant, racist, dipshit people you can imagine. Serious mouthbreather territory here.

Here are some of my favorite parts:


Q: What are some of the things in it you have a problem with?

A: I don't know. I don't know.


Q: Do you have other problems with the health care bill?

A: Ya, that nice little death tax, where they would rather send you a $50 check for a blue pill, end of life pill, than pay for the necessary medical expenses.


Q: What is the provision in the bill that makes you concerned they might kill senior citizens?

A: You got a real good blonde hair. I don't know what side you're on.


Q: Do you think it's a reasonable proposal to say that those people who don't have health insurance should seek their health care from religious figures or from herbs?

A: Well, I think that's one alternative.

One of the lessons I have learned in life is not to be surprised when people are stupid, but to be surprised when people aren't.

Well, they have their pitchforks -- now they just need their hoods.

Tea party protesters call Georgia's John Lewis '******'

WASHINGTON Demonstrators outside the U.S. Capitol , angry over the proposed health care bill, shouted "******" Saturday at U.S. Rep. John Lewis , a Georgia congressman and civil rights icon who was nearly beaten to death during an Alabama march in the 1960s.

The protesters also shouted obscenities at other members of the Congressional Black Caucus , lawmakers said.

"They were shouting, sort of harassing," Lewis said. "But, it's okay, I've faced this before. It reminded me of the 60s. It was a lot of downright hate and anger and people being downright mean."

Lewis said he was leaving the Cannon office building across from the Capitol when protesters shouted "Kill the bill, kill the bill," Lewis said.

"I said 'I'm for the bill, I support the bill, I'm voting for the bill'," Lewis said.

A colleague who was accompanying Lewis said people in the crowd responded by saying "Kill the bill, then the n-word."

"It surprised me that people are so mean and we can't engage in a civil dialogue and debate," Lewis said.

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver , D- Mo. , said he was a few yards behind Lewis and distinctly heard "******."

"It was a chorus," Cleaver said. "In a way, I feel sorry for those people who are doing this nasty stuff - they're being whipped up. I decided I wouldn't be angry with any of them."

Protestors also used a slur as they confronted Rep. Barney Frank , D- Mass. , an openly gay member of Congress . A writer for Huffington Post said the crowd called Frank a "******."

Frank told the Boston Globe that the incident happened as he was walking from the Longworth office building to the Rayburn office building, both a short distance from the Capitol. Frank said the crowd consisted of a couple of hundred of people and that they referred to him as 'homo.'

"I'm disappointed with the unwillingness to be civil," Frank told the Globe. "I was, I guess, surprised by the rancor. What it means is obviously the health care bill is proxy for a lot of other sentiments, some of which are perfectly reasonable, but some of which are not."

"People out there today, on the whole, were really hateful," Frank said. "The leaders of this movement have a responsibility to speak out more."

Thousands of demonstrators gathered outside the Capitol on Saturday as the House Democratic leadership worked to gather enough votes to enact a health care overhaul proposal that has become the centerpiece of President Barack Obama's domestic agenda. Most were affiliated with so-called tea party organizations that originally sprang up during last summer's protests of the health care proposals.

Heated debate has surrounded what role race plays in the motivations of the tea party demonstrators. During protests last summer, demonstrators displayed a poster depicting Obama as an African witch doctor complete with headdress, above the words "OBAMACARE coming to a clinic near you." Former President Jimmy Carter asserted in September that racism was a major factor behind the hostility that Obama's proposals had faced.

The claim brought angry rebuttals from Republicans.

On Saturday, Frank, however, said he was sorry Republican leaders didn't do more to disown the protesters.

Some Republicans "think they are benefiting from this rancor," he said.

House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D- S.C. , said Saturday's ugliness underscored for him that the health care overhaul isn't the only motivation for many protesters.

"I heard people saying things today I've not heard since March 15th, 1960 , when I was marching to try and get off the back of the bus," Clyburn said. "This is incredible, shocking to me."

He added, "A lot of us have said for a long time that none of this is about healthcare at all. It's about extending a basic fundamental right to people who are less powerful."

Is that actually a chart that is used?

Well ... used in the sense it was created by the Republicans to make health care reform look like overly complicated government bureaucracy. Actually it was probably created by strategists funded by the insurance industry and given to the Republicans to use. To scare people.
