There Will Be Bloodshed

 

…And it has begun already.

Yesterday, Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit reported on the DNC’s supplying what you might call shock troops to counter the “mis-statements and lies” (read: honest questions and concerns) that many citizens are asking at some of the ObamaCare townhall meetings taking place around the country.  The types of goons that are being “recruited” consist of the new left’s usual suspects: thugs from SEIU, the AFL-CIO, Organize for America, and pretty much anyone else who wants to gin up an altercation.

“Our representatives are under attack by Washington insiders, insurance companies, and well-financed special interests who don’t go a day without spreading lies and stirring up fear. We need to show them that we’re sick and tired of it, and that we’re ready for real change, this year.

“Please come to the Health Care event and make sure that the most powerful voices in this debate are those calling for real reform.”

Well, that pretty much spells it out, doesn’t it? Common citizens, when they disagree with the President and Congress, are accused of being under the influence of nebulous special interests, and are not to be allowed to ask questions else they’ll be shouted down (at best). Notice the careful wording–nothing you can point to would incite violence when taken separately, but taken as a whole, it seems to be a clarion call to drown out the opposition, whatever it takes. No doubt there will be a few union goons stationed at strategic places to “keep order” during that meeting.

That was yesterday.

Today, the situation has already escalated in St. Louis, where a black conservative was hospitalized after being attacked while handing out flags at a Russ Carnahan town hall event. Six people have been arrested on suspicion of assault, resisting arrest, and/or disturbing the peace.

Reading Jim Hoft’s latest report, the whole event is fishy: union supporters had reserved seating, while a thousand or so tea party taxpayers were denied entrance. Read Jim’s entire piece, as well as the comments. It’s well worth it.

A line was crossed at that meeting last night in St. Louis, and we may not be able to un-cross it for a very long time.

Conservatives aren’t looking for a fight, we’re looking for resposible government for America, which does not include bankrupting the country, drowning it in foreign debt, or socializing our health care system. The St. Louis town hall meeting was the first one that had outright violence. Let’s hope it’s the last.

We don’t want violence, we won’t throw the first punch. But if attacked, we will fight.

UPDATE: Not an isolated incident. Confederate Yankee reports on thuggish behavior in Denver and Tampa as well. Meanwhile, HotAir adds some perspective.

    Most of what happened in Tampa was shouting down and intimidation. Anyone who spoke against Obamacare was photographed by goon-squad members, but there was also violence reported.

    My fear is that it won’t be long before there is more.

    My advice: Don’t let them sucker you into an act of violence first. If there is to be violence, let them be the ones to instigate it.

    One thing we can do: If they are going to take photos of US when we speak up, you take photos of them. Note: If a FEW of us take cameras, they may take them from us (assault & theft), but if we ALL bring cameras, they can’t get them from all of us and we should be sure to get pictures of them taking our cameras and of them commiting acts of intimidation and assault if it gets to that.

    Every act of stupidity (which is all they know and understand) is another nail in their own coffin of public credibility… and it will reflect right back on the head goons in Washington who have activated them. And we know who they are.

  3. […] Well, it would seem that the moment we have talked about and feared is upon us. The first assaults by Obama supporters (in this case, the SEIU) against Americans who simply wish to voice opinions to their elected representatives has taken place (see “There Will Be Bloodshed“). […]
