Mob Vs. Mob II

Rich Lowry sums it up pretty well:
Obama’s White House and its allies have unleashed a barrage of criticism and condescension at people daring to show up at town-hall meetings and ask their elected representatives pointed questions. “Fired up and ready to go!” apparently works only one way. If engaged citizens shower Obama with adoration at stage-managed rallies, they are the very stuff of American democracy. If they boo their congressman, they are a scandalous eruption of fake or hateful sentiment.

These mobs aren't spontaneous grassroots demonstrations, but rather a carefully calculated and well funded attempt to disrupt actual dialogue on the issues and intimidate elected officials.

These are the same idiots questioning whether Obama was born in US and whether the moon landing was a conspiracy.

Some of these mobs are engaging in sedition.

That's the Democratic and White House spin anyway.

The reality is thousands of normal everyday Americans are showing up to question their congressmen and senators about a bunch of healthcare reform proposals that concern or frighten them.

Very few are the same idiots who question Obama's birth certificate and the only goofball I've seen question the moon landing was Whoppie Goldberg on The View.

As for the charge of sedition, check the videos. It's union thugs who have been urged by the White House to "punch back" at protesters "twice as hard."

Nice!

The "reality" is that organizations like FreedomWorks and "Conservatives for Patients’ Rights" are providing talking points, maps to town hall meetings, as well as false and misleading figures to distort the debate. The goal is disruption, not discussion.
These are the same idiots behind the Tea Baggers claiming "taxation without representation", even though we have an elected representative government.

"Conservatives for Patients’ Rights, the operation that’s running a national campaign against a public health care option, is now publicly taking credit for helping gin up the sometimes-rowdy outbursts targeting House Dems at town hall meetings around the country, raising questions about their spontaneity."
