Send out the enforcers--Democrat attempts to muscle out healthcare opponents

A town hall meeting turned nasty leaving one person with minor injuries in Tampa, FL. What you hardly notice in the story is that the SEIU organizers injured the opponent of the President's reform. The President called for his people to show up to the meetings to counter the opponents. In St. Louis and Tampa they did though in smaller numbers.

In Tampa they tried to shut many of the opponents out of the meeting injuring one man who is contemplating filing charges. If you read the first third and bottom of the story, you would get the impression that it was that rowdy 9-12 project's fault. If you read carefully, you will see that it was the President's Organizing America and the SEIU took the early seats and tried to muscle the doors closed on the regular people.

The meeting was organized by Reed plus the Service Employees International Union, other unions and Organizing for America, a liberal group that grew out of the Obama presidential campaign.

Some opponents accused the organizers of trying to stack the crowd by allowing early admission to those on their side. Reed denied that, saying those admitted early were organizers setting up the room.

In St Louis, the President's supporters put a conservative activist in the hospital. There were 4 arrests plus 2 others in related incidents.

A technique of authoritarian regimes is to create an incident, cause problems, and then blame the other side for what they did. Why are we seeing that in America? First the Democratic National Committee (DNC) sets it up with its Mob ad. The President calls out the muscle. The media is predisposed to look for angry conservative mobs. The muscle then creates an incident. The propaganda machine dutifully repeats the message. People are urged to spy on and turn in the dangerous dissenters. The step that we haven't seen is the left trying to use the pretext of law and order to put down the dissent. Preventing that outcome is why I am speaking out.

DNC, SEIU, Organizing America, and whomever else stop it. This is still the USA not your authoritarian paradise. We have rights and we will not be intimidated. Let them speak.
