How Do They Sleep at Night?

Tea Party Patriots Attack Family Who Lost Daughter and Grandchild

Bear in mind, as one always has to, that these so-called "patriots" have nothing to do with grass roots, or any other kind of roots. The whole "tea party" concept is funded by money from corporate donors. Insurance companies and the like.

I wonder how much money the "protesters" were paid to stand up there and heckle the family that lost its loved ones...souls come cheap in this economy.
A group called the Chicago Tea Party Patriots publicly heckled a grieving family and suggested that the couple fabricated their tragic story.

A local Tea Party organizer falsely claimed that the couple had made up the story and tried to justify the town hall behavior, according to the Southtown Star.

Catherina Wojtowicz, of Chicago's Mount Greenwood community, an organizer for a Tea Party splinter group, Chicago Tea Party Patriots, falsely claimed that the Houghs fabricated their story. In an e-mail, she called them operatives of President Barack Obama who "go from event to event and (cry) the same story." [...]

The audience, Wojtowicz later explained, was exasperated by stories of isolated tragedies that cloud debate over the health care bill itself.

I think that last bears repeating.

This was not a spontaneous outburst of "exasperation." This was an organized attack. The reason for the debate is the passage of a Bill designed to prevent such tragedies from happening. If that family's loss were, indeed, an "isolated" tragedy, there would be far less need for reform in the first place!

The insurance conglomerates would very much like us all to forget the individual cases...the hundreds of thousands; even millions of them, that add up to a crushing need for reform in health care.

Some services need to be provided in another way than to make a profit for fat cats. Health care is one of them. If that opinion makes me a pinko commie liberal, then so be it.


  1. I don't understand why these idiots just DON'T GET IT.

    It just baffles me. What part don't they understand?

  2. You're not a pinko commie liberal. You're sensible, intelligent, sensitive, and stronger than any of those tea party idiots ever even dream they themselves are! Thanks for your insight as well. ...t

  3. *sigh* And what makes me sad is the second it happens to them...a major family illness that insurance refuses to cover either adequately or at all? That's when they'll change their tune. I wish people would have more compassion.

  4. They don't sleep. They're zombies.

    They're so full of the Glen Beck Rush Limbaugh Loofah Guy's koolaid that they're blind. If Jesus himself were to heal them, they'd construe that as being the favored ones. They have no respect for the sanctity of life much less their own minds.

    I would like to see them censured. Instead of paying taxes this year I'd like to buy them a beautiful deserted island where they can frolic and pay health insurance premiums. Preferably far, far away.
