Dem: Protesters Are ‘Political Terrorists’

From Indiana television station WISH-TV:

GOP demanding apology from Baron Hill

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Indiana Congressman Baron Hill is on the hot seat in the health care reform debate.

Hill is a leader of the so-called Blue Dog Democrats, Moderates and Conservatives who recently won a health care compromise.

But, his criticism of health care opponents has Republicans demanding an apology.

Hill traveled outside his southern Indiana district to address the Indianapolis Rotary Club Tuesday where he made no effort to avoid controversy, criticizing the health care reform opponents who disrupt town hall meetings.

"They have only one purpose in mind and that’s to blow up the meetings that are being held and that serves no one, ladies and gentlemen," said Hill.

Hill recently called them political terrorists, a term he avoided in his speech but not in a 24-Hour News 8 interview.

"If you just want to blow up a meeting that’s a political terrorist," said Hill.

Hill sits on a committee that passed one of the reform bills. He voted yes after a field hearing was held in his district on July 27. As a result Congressman Hill is the subject of reporting in the Washington Post and radio ads from Republicans.

GOP ad: "He folded like a lawn chair. Baron Hill. He threw in the towel.”

"So, my life started to change about a month ago," said Hill.

Hill told the rotary that it would be a shame if health care reform fails this year and he found a sympathetic audience.

"They have to do something because it’s so expensive," said Ron Zargarian, a Rotarian.

Connie Dillman, a Rotarian said, "People are so frightened and people are putting out things that are frightening to people and I agree with the Congressman that we have to get back to what the facts are."

But, Baron Hill has no town meetings of his own scheduled, at least not yet.

"We’ll I’m going to hold a town hall meeting, but I want to make sure we get it under control," said Hill.

Before leaving he thanked Rotarians for their civil questions. Hill said that when he holds a town hall meeting it will be a daylong affair.

In the meantime, he plans to meet with constituents in his office in groups of just three or four.

Once again, this is a story that only the local media has thus far carried.

Our watchdog media will have nothing to do with it.

By the way, is it worse to be called a terrorist or a Nazi?

    To quote the lefties, “One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter.” If that is the case, make me a freedom fighter. I and hundreds of thousands like me will fight for our freedoms to our dying breath and that is what scares the bejesus out of the Bamster and his minion.

    Barry, be afraid my son, be very afraid.

    All of their lives are going to change dramatically.

    And 2010 doesn’t look like a good year to be making a career change.

    Maybe they can all become death counselors, or government paper shufflers.

    What world are these people living in that they think everyone will fall in lock step to their ambitions. Opponents of the health care bill are making themselves heard loud and clear. But the dem’s don’t want to acknowledge an opposing view. Earlier this morning I watched a video clip of Chris Matthews interviewing a New Hampshire protester who showed up to a town hall meeting wearing a pistol where all could see (New Hampshire allows open carry). You can just see and hear the venomous rage Matthews directs towards the protester for exercising his constitutional rights.

  4. VMAN says:

    We have a lot of good people in the military but when push comes to shove who’s side will they come down on. Will they be loyal to the government that has given them a job, education and more? Will they be loyal to their race? Will they be loyal to the constitution? There is a politician from Pennsylvania who was a three star admiral and he is a flaming liberal Democrat. Frankly that scares me. If these idiots want to cal me and people like me a terrorist I guess there is nothing I can do about it because it is their right but it sure does make me sad for our country.

    (CNSNews.com) – At a joint press conference with Mexican President Felipe Calderon and the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Guadalajara, Mexico on Monday, President Barack Obama referred to American opponents of amnesty for illegal aliens as “demagogues.”


    How much longer are we going to put up with this shit?

  6. Liberals Demise says:

    Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Henry, Franklin, Hamilton, Mason, etc, etc, etc.

    All these people were labeled crazy, terrorist and revolutionaries!
    We are in good company!!

    “By the way, is it worse to be called a terrorist or a Nazi?”

    I realize that’s a rhetorical question, but it’s sparked my curiousity. How come the mainstream media and the ACLU and even mr. O himself treat REAL terrorists with kid gloves and have even gone so far as to bend over backwards to help them, but then show utter disgust and intolerance of us “right-wing political terrorists”…ya know, the REAL Americans??

    I guess all terrorists aren’t created equal.
