  1. Police officers were called to calm down an unruly crowd outside a health care reform town hall meeting in downtown Tampa, Florida on Thursday evening, according to local news reports.

    Angry protesters screamed, yelled and banged on windows as officers hurried to guard the entrances to the facility, where U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor was trying to discuss the various health care reform proposals being debated in Congress. One photojournalist said that a fistfight broke out inside the building, reports WTSP.

    Many of the hundreds of protesters said that they had been inspired by Fox News host Glenn Beck and a conservative activist group, according to the St. Petersburg Times:

    Instead, hundreds of vocal critics turned out, many of them saying they had been spurred on through the Tampa 912 activist group promoted by conservative radio and television personality Glenn Beck. Others had received e-mails from the Hillsborough Republican party that urged people to speak out against the plan and offered talking points to challenge supporters.

    The Times added:

    The spectacle at the Children's Board in Ybor City sounded more like a wrestling cage match than a panel discussion on national policy, and it was just the latest example of a health care meeting disrupted by livid protesters.

    The Tampa Tribune reports that some protesters carried racist caricatures of President Obama and added details of more fights and scuffles:

    Several of the protesters' signs bore an image of Obama with his face painted as the Joker, an image that drew protests of racism locally when it appeared on a Web site thought to be associated with the Pinellas Republican party.


    There were at least two scuffles between protesters trying to enter and organizers manning the doors.

    One of those involved in a scuffle, Randy Arthur, of Oldsmar said he was injured by those manning the doors and said he would file a police report... Randy Arthur, who owns an air conditioning service company, later talked to police officers, his knit shirt ripped and a few scratches visible on his chest. "They slammed him into the wall,'' Kathy Arthur said.

    Here is video of the health care forum:

  2. The whole thing looked pretty tame to me. It looks like people are using their 1st amendment right to point out the bullshit that the dems are putting forward. Dems can't take it.



    Second, why wouldn't the white democrat let the Indian guy in? That looked racist to me.
     
  3. Sure, real tame...

  5. Illum

    Illum

    The Joker pic isn't racist, that's a cop out.
     
  6. The Joker represents honesty. It is Obama that is the racist.
     
  7. skylr33

    This is the people fighting for their lives, and to stop the Odumba administration from imposing rationed health care on us. We need to keep up the fight, and stop the Democrats from passing this socialized garbage!!!!!!!!!!
     
  8. Not nearly as bad as Black Panthers with billy clubs standing in front of voting booths. And Obama didn't say a word about that. Or the things B. Hussein's buddy Ayers did back in the day. Man, the Left's hypocrisy is so blatant.

    What's infinitely more frightening is the brown-shirt tactics the White House is responding with. Please report those "fishy" websites and emails that go against official Obamacare propaganda...and we'll take care of it. We've never seen anything so Chavez/Castro like in the White House...not even all the bogus IRS investigations and FBI files from the Clinton era compare.
     
  9. So as long as it is not as bad as someone else, that makes it okay?

    Repeat, right wing thuggary...
