Tea Baggers: If they win, we all lose



Original Source Video: The Columbus Dispatch
COLUMBUS - In a scene reminiscent of non-violent civil rights confrontations from the 1960s, Ohio Tea Partiers quickly turned ugly when facing off with health care advocates in front of Ohio Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy's office Tuesday.

In shocking video taken by a Columbus Dispatch reporter Doral Chenowith yesterday, Tea Party protestors mock a seated counter-protestor with a sign indicating he has Parkinson's disease. They then proceed to hurl wadded up bills at him shouting, "I'll decide when to give you money!"

On March 17th outside of Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy's (D-OH15) district office teabaggers mocked and scorned a man who had a sign stating that he had Parkinson's. They told him "he's in the wrong end of town to ask for handouts", called him a communist and threw dollar bills at him to "pay for his health care".



And here is the rest of it after the break.

This video documents the behavior of several low-roaders, very reminiscent of some aggressive, in-your-face protesters I witnessed shouting at a 94-year-old professor emeritus who was using a walker to make his to the EMU.

Check out the man in the mirror.

Its great that wealthy white males can spot communism, in this case, taking the guise of a sick man on the side of the road and yell at him.

Gosh America is great. That's kind of free speech Pacifica Forum uses, calling protesters 'neo-communists'. If the protesters are communist and that man was a communist. Then damb, I must be a commie too. Your alternative sounds too much like Nazi Germany.

To the previous 'Anonymous':

Your presumptuousness and lack of logic would make a discussion impossible. I recommend an English tutor (this wouldn't require great wealth), and also some sensitivity training for your racism.

When you've completed your studies, you will still be free to find yourself another country.

You're free to be a "commie," and say what you say and how, but with your sarcastic complaints about America, why would you want to stay and play in the sandbox with everybody else?
