Harry Reid Call Obamacare Town Hall Protesters ‘Evil’ … Gee Why are Americans Turning Against Democrats?


From the Dems, Axis of Evil not Evil, but American Obamacare protesters are EVIL?

When former President George W. Bush used the term, “the Axis of Evil” to characterize the alliance of North Korea, Iran and Iraq dictator Saddam Hussein in 2002, Democrats went mental and warned that such comments were counterproductive and dangerous. Democrats actually came out against calling the trio “evil.” You mean that terrorists are provided greater deference that “We the People”?

Flash forward seven years and my how things have changed. Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid now calls town hall protesters exercising their Constitutional Rights of Free Speech against Obamacare as EVIL. What is evil is any politician trying to defraud the American people and not represent them as they were duly elected.

We saw it again in 2002, when George W. Bush characterized North Korea, Iran and Saddam Hussein’s Iraq as an “axis of evil.” Tom Daschle, a Democrat and then Senate majority leader, warned that “we’ve got to be very careful with rhetoric of that kind”; former President Jimmy Carter called it “overly simplistic and counterproductive”; and comedian Will Ferrell parodied it on Saturday Night Live. Soon the phrase became acceptable only in the ironic sense—as in the Chris Fair cookbook titled “Cuisines of the Axis of Evil and Other Irritating States: A Dinner Party Approach to International Relations.”

With all this history, you would think Harry Reid (D., Nev.) had ample warning. Nevertheless, the Senate majority leader invoked the e-word himself last week at an energy conference in Las Vegas, where he accused those protesting President Barack Obama’s health-care proposals of being “evil mongers.” So proud was he of this contribution to the American political lexicon that he repeated it to a reporter the next day and noted the phrase was “an original.”

      The reason he thinks protesters are evil is because he thinks Obama is God’s gift to this country and to question Obama is blasphemy.

      The freedom of speech is under attack by the Senator from Nevada. Harry Reid puts labels on anyone who disagrees with his agenda. This is what fascists did to the Jews calling them evil, making them less human so they could suspend justice, religion, and the rule of law to take their land, money, and businesses and kill them.

      Not plucked from our midst to serve us, Harry
      serves himself. A small, insignificant person, Reid
      envisions his elected position as one of power over
      his employers. This is not a good attitude for a
      servant to have. We must remind him of his job
      requirements and the agreement he has to support
      our Constitution. The way to get old Harry to answer
      the ‘Mail’, is to mail it from the voting booth!

      4 Greg: so you do not like that he uses his freedom of speech and think it should be taken away?
