Democrat Goons Assault Healthcare Protesters

As you'll recall, I mentioned yesterday that the White House had mobilized its ACORN thugs and union muscle to 'police town hall meetings' mobilized via Obama's Organizing for America, “a project of the Democratic National Committee."

White House Deputy Chief of Staff Jim Messina held a meeting to rally the Obama troops in the Senate and let them know that the Obama Administration had called in its markers and was ready to go to the mattresses to stifle any embarrassing dissent to its neo-Marxist agenda :

Top White House aides gave Senate Democrats a recess battle plan on Thursday, arming the lawmakers with tips for avoiding disastrous town hall meetings while showing them polling on popular aspects of the reform effort…

“If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard,” Messina said, according to an official who attended the meeting…

“They are just helping us understand the fringe that is trying to mess up our meetings,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).

Messina meant what he said. The goons have been unleashed Chicago style:

Kenneth Gladney, a 38-year-old conservative activist from St. Louis, said he was attacked by some of those arrested as he handed out yellow flags with “Don’t tread on me” printed on them. He spoke to the Post-Dispatch from the emergency room of the St. John’s Mercy Medical Center, where he said he was waiting to be treated for injuries to his knee, back, elbow, shoulder and face that he suffered in the attack. Gladney, who is black, said one of his attackers, also a black man, used a racial slur against him before the attack started.

Of course, if the SEIU and ACORN drop the ball and can't stop protesters from entering the hall, there's always the option of shoving them outside the hall bodily and forcing the doors closed so only the 'right people' remain inside:

That's exactly what happened in the above example in Tampa Bay, Florida, where the SEIU was mobilized for a town hall meeting called at the last minute by Democrat Kathy Castor.Even with a massive turn out by the SEIU and Castor's political supporters, there were still too many health care choice protesters in the room - so the SEIU simply pushed anyone who wasn't 'with them' out of the hall and then forced the doors shut to keep them out.

This, like the White House setting up an official 'enemies list' by using an official website to allow the Chosen One's supporters to report anyone critical of Obama's agenda is something we simply haven't seen in American politics before.

This is huge.

If this truly is the "fringe" as the Mr. Reid seems to think, then these actions by the Democrats, while dispicable, will probably be effective in stiffling the opposition and getting Obama's agenda through. If this is not a "fringe" movement, then these policies will probably backfire on the Democrats and may cause them problems on election day.

Distubing....truly disturbing. The Union Communist "blueshirts" certainly look like old retired hockey "enforcers" don't they?

Love the way they try to block all cameras and/or point them out in the crowd as if for removal!
