DNC’s New Strategy for Town Halls?

There must be a new memo from the DNC floating around urging Democrat members of Congress to avoid “the angry mobs” when they return home to their districts.

We see this in the video below in which CD-8 Democrat, Gabrielle Giffords decided to hold her Douglas town hall by lining up members and meeting them one-on-one. How excruciating.

CD-7 Raul Grijalva is also getting hammered by constituents asking when he will be holding a town hall. It appears that he won’t be anytime soon.

I haven’t seen anything on Harry Mitchell’s website announcing an upcoming town hall. That’s all right. The citizens will be taking their grievances to his office this Saturday (They’ll do the same in Tucson with Giffords.)

In Arkansas, Congressmen Mike Ross and Vic Snyder conducted a town hall in a children’s hospital. They must have thought they could use sick little children as a human shield against angry citizens. Those in attendance were still mad as hell. 


So the new strategy by the DNC is avoid “those angry mobs” at all costs, hide in your bunkers and hope “the storm” passes quickly. Citizen activists are now viewed as uneducated, informed peasants with torches and pitchforks. Conservative community organizers like myself are cast as agitators because our politics are correct.

If this continues and citizen activists are ignored or even worse, insulted or labeled, it’s gonna get ugly. And it doesn’t matter which party is in power. The people won’t be ignored.

  2. Hi I just wanted to say I hate being railroaded into something that I don’t think our government has the right to do to any of us. I feel our freedom of choice is being pushed out the door and all of us need to stop it. Freedom of choice was earned not given our grandfathers fought to keep our homeland free we must stop this new healthcare reform at all costs for it will kill us and make our government strong in how they can control us..This whole thing is about control and who has the final say. I thought our Congressmen were suppose to be there for WE THE PEOPLE.. Well guess who sold us out.. I hope we can stop this new plan right now.. Terri
