ABC News Reports "The Truth" About Town Halls

Ah, those town hall meetings that have been the bane of Congressional Democrats since they've returned back home. Filled with "Nazi symbolism", according to Nancy Pelosi. Packed with suspiciously "well-dressed" protestors, according to Barbera Boxer (what, does she think all of America's middle class dresses in rags and tie-dyes, like her West Coast bretheren?)

So ABC News went to a town hall to root out this clandestine conservative operatives. And what do you know? They turn out to be real people!

There were no lobbyist-funded buses in the parking lot of Mardela Middle and High School on Tuesday evening, and the hundreds of Eastern Maryland residents who packed the school’s auditorium loudly refuted the notion that their anger over the Democrats’ health care reform plans is “manufactured.”

“I went to school in this school,” a man named Bob told me. “I don't see anyone in this room that isn't from Mardela Springs right now.”

“We’ve been quiet too long,” said a woman named Joan.

They came to yell at their congressman, freshman Democratic Rep. Frank Kratovil.....

Tough day for Kratovil, who admitted that - unlike the cap and trade bill he voted for - he's actually in the middle of reading the health care bill right now:

By the end of the 90 minute town hall -- which Kratovil told the crowd was his fourth interaction with constituents that day -- the congressman looked exasperated. He was hounded by jeers all the way out to his car.

Remember: We are citizens, not subjects. Pelosi and Boxer can complain from the palace that the peasents are getting uppity, as they confiscate our earnings based on their "need" and use it to buy transatlantic jets for themselves, but you can almost smell their sweat.

Quiet subjects is what they need to rule. Angry citizens will bring down the palace gates and force the princes and princesses of liberal royalty to divest themselves of their ill-gotten gains.

They fear that. So they fear - and loathe - us as well. We are mocked, sneered at, and called miserable names in the hope that we will accept these monikers meekly and slink away.

Things will get uglier before they get better. Desperate royalty can do dangerous things...

Great Post!

I am stunned that a 'main stream media outlet' had what it takes to tell the truth!

It just must be getting more difficult each day to perpetrate a complete lie. I mean look at the difference between "manufactured rage" and "public outcry"

When ACORN has a guy with a bull horn telling the people they bussed in what to say, that is supposed to be public out cry, but when actual voters and actual tax payers react to what they hear it is called manufactured rage?

Kudos to ABC. Maybe we are seeing a twinkle in the eye of the next Brit Hume.

So can desperate citizens, and there's hundreds of millions more of us than them. And we are fed up with both sides in DC.
