    teabaggers shouting down democrats was the soundtrack to 2010, start to finish.
    and their shouts were all lies, fwiw.

    Class war has consequences, and we are living them.

      ...but don't remember them sending two or three person teams out to election speeches to simply disrupt by shouting the same inane slogan over and over.

      If I'm wrong, I'll retract.  maybe someone has a youtube link?  I just can't recall it ever happening.

        and the town hall people were following orders to disrupt the meetings with elected officials, not people running for office, i attend one of the fun town halls and saw the printed game plans for the tea baggers. Its also a false equivalency santornum is a threat to democracy whereas health care reform was not.

      •  They didn't disrupt by chanting the same slogan (0+ / 0-)

        over and over, but they did disrupt speakers.  I remember a handicapped woman standing in front of the room trying to say something about the need for health reform.  They were booing and shouting things at her, like "Why do I have to pay for your problem?"  And "Sit down!"  Eventually she gave up.  

        I saw a similar scene with a mother trying to talk about her child's health problems and health reform.  She was also shouted down.

        I don't have links to these tapes.  How many tapes can the average blogger keep records of?  All the same, it happened.
