Video: Democrat screams at constituent for asking tough question on health care

posted at 8:45 pm on August 7, 2009 by Allahpundit

And by “constituent,” I of course mean crypto-Nazi political terrorist. You’ll find the full unedited exchange right here but I’m giving you the news segment because it provides important context. Like, for example, that the guy who asked Scott the question actually is one of his constituents, contrary to what the distinguished gentleman implies. And that his “hijacking” of this town hall (which wasn’t devoted to health care) came during a Q&A session in which attendees were in fact allowed to ask about anything. But aside from that, he’s very, very Nazi, baby.

He appears to be in good health during the interview, too, so the SEIU presence at the meeting must have been light.

It’s “Health Insurance Reform” now don’t ya know.

Thanks HH

They re-named it because ‘healthcare’ didn’t have a bad guy to blame. With the new label they have set out to demonize the insurance companies by giving the issue a face. Alinsky #13

19th Century African-American politician
John Mercer Langston (December 14, 1829 – November 15, 1897) was an American abolitionist, attorney, educator, and political activist. He was the first dean of the law school at Howard University and helped create the department. He was the first president of now Virginia State University. In 1888 he was the first African American elected to the U.S. Congress from Virginia. His early career was based in Ohio, where he began his lifelong work for African American freedom, education, equal rights and suffrage. In 1855 he was one of the first African American people in the United States elected to public office when elected as a town clerk in Ohio.

He was the younger brother of fellow abolitionist Charles Henry Langston and the great-uncle of renowned poet Langston Hughes.
The youngest Langston enrolled in the preparatory program at Oberlin College at the age of fourteen, where his older brothers Gideon and Charles had studied. John Langston earned a bachelor’s degree in 1849 and a master’s degree in theology in 1852 from Oberlin. Denied admission to law school, most likely because of his race, Langston then studied law under attorney and Republican congressman Philemon Bliss and was admitted to the Ohio bar in 1854.
Due to his extensive contacts from political activities in the Midwest, in 1863 when the government approved founding of the United States Colored Troops, Langston was appointed to recruit African Americans to fight for the Union Army. He enlisted hundreds of men for duty in the Massachusetts Fifty-fourth and Fifty-fifth regiments, in addition to 800 for Ohio’s first black regiment. After the war, he was appointed inspector general for the Freedmen’s Bureau, a Federal organization that assisted freed slaves and tried to oversee working contracts, as well as establishing schools.

Blacksmith8 on August 7, 2009 at 10:01 PM

I would ask simply “Congressman, where in the Constitution does the Federal government have the authority to establish, operate, or otherwise be involved in health care?”

DerKrieger on August 7, 2009 at 8:56 PM

One could ask, “Congressman, is the health care bill necessary and proper to carry into execution any of the enumerated powers of the Congress?” If that seems too much of a mouthfull, one could ask, “Congressman, which of the enumerated powers would the health care bill carry into execution?”

I want video of a Congressman replying, “Oh, no, we’re not going to execute anyone.”

Kralizec on August 7, 2009 at 10:02 PM

christene on August 7, 2009 at 10:03 PM

People like Scott have no more business trying to run healthcare in this country or any other than they do trying for the moon by flapping their arms.

Outside of the moral failure that is socialized medicine, it assumes some committee is going to be smart enough to know what should be done for hundreds of millions of people over decades and decades.

You can’t get there from here, and especially if wankers like Scott have a separate plan which excludes them from having to deal with what the rest of “the people” have to deal with.

I mean, really, if Fidel got the same medical care as some villager in the far east part of Cuba, would he be alive today? Really? How about Canadian or UK politicians? Are they subject to the same system as the masses?

“We the people” includes you, Mr. Hot Shot Scott. Equality before the law of the land, despite your color. Can you handle that? I think not. Wimp.

When wimps, whores, liars and thieves are found out, great anger displays are useful to deflect the blame. It’s a tactical move. Keep boring in and kill them with kindness…they will fold. They have nothing, or they would use it instead of anger and hot words.

All bigots act the same. They just have different hot buttons.

Only problem with that is they have changed the language.

It’s “Health Insurance Reform” now don’t ya know.

seesalrun on August 7, 2009 at 9:54 PM

But that’s par for the course. Hillarycare did much the same thing when it started to fail.The spin has changed also which is the diabolical part of the equation because the legislation hasn’t changed a bit.

Originally the claim was that we needed a radical course like nationalizing healthcare to boost the economy. Essentially, the argument was that healthcare is 15% of the economy and it required a huge re-do in order to help the economy.

Next the claim was we needed to nationalize healthcare because too many people were being hurt by the status quo. We were faced with a crisis so dire that Congress had to rush this wide-sweeping legislation in just a few weeks of partisan bickering.

Finally as the August deadline passed without a bill and public outrage became vocal, the debate has become ugly with the Democrats quasing dissent by packing town hall meetings and stationing thugs at the doors to turn away potential opponents to the legislation. The filthy liar in the White House is constantly lying about the specifics of the bill and threatens to use procedures to force the bill through outside the normal process.

Again, keep in mind the bill’s basic provisions are little changed from the initial argument but the PR war has spiraled down to the point we have Congressmen yelling at their constituents for asking reasonable questions.

highhopes on August 7, 2009 at 10:14 PM

Well Doctor, maybe next time you’ll think twice about who you vote into office…

RedbonePro on August 7, 2009 at 10:18 PM

Typical arrogant Congressman who thinks he knows better, and yet in his clueless mutterings he doesn’t know that the questioner is referring to the healthcare bill, nor does he seem to know that the bill is no longer in committee. Fool.

His little tantrum does not impress me. Just another angry Black fella. Been there, done that.

Read the bill, you buffoon. And polish that resume, because you ain’t gonna be no congressman for much longer.

EMD on August 7, 2009 at 10:19 PM

I live in suburban Atlanta but not in Scott’s district. I do have several friends at work who do live in Scott’s district and they consider him as not much better than Cynthia McKinney except he is nasty.

bill30097 on August 7, 2009 at 10:53 PM

David Scott was one of the biggest anti-gun Brady Bunch tools and anti-white bigots in the history of the Georgia Legislature.He and Billy McKinney ( Cynthia’s daddy ) were peas in a pod. He always represented a large, black, liberal constituency and apparently still does in a gerrymandered district. I can almost guarantee that he doesn’t appreciate these crackers asking him ANY question on ANY subject, he was probably expecting adulation from his usual band of minions.

Since 1978, Scott has owned Dayn-Mark Advertising, which places billboards and other forms of advertising in the Atlanta area. Scott’s wife, Alfredia, now heads the business. In May 2007, it was reported that the business owes more than $150,000 in back taxes and penalties.[2] Scott’s campaigns have paid the company more than $500,000 since 2002 for office rent, printing, T-shirts, and other services. He has also paid his wife, two daughters, and son-in-law tens of thousands of dollars for campaign work such as fund raising and canvassing. In 2007, Scott was named one of the 22 most corrupt members of Congress by the political watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Scott_(Georgia)
He’s a fine man standing up there in front of those people. That’s a nice suit he’s wearing too. He looks really good in it. Bet he thinks so too. Wonder how much it cost? Surely that fine suit was paid for with tax dollars. Was that a gold watch he was wearing? I wonder? Probably paid for with tax dollars as well. He’s a fine man. Powerful man. Just like all these fine congress people. They’re not like us. They are powerful. They are smart. We all are just stupid cattle.
That mean doctor should apologize for making that fine man have to answer a question! How dare he! Isn’t it enough to just be in this fine powerful man’s presence and behold him in his expensive, fine suit?!!
It just goes on and on, doesn’t it? Is there not a single Democrat in all of Washington that will stand up and tell the members of their own party,”Enough!”?

Midas on August 8, 2009 at 1:05 AM

Now that was one ugly performance if I have ever seen one. But we have seen several lately, have we not? Arrogant illiberal politicians berating the citizens who elected them seems to be the norm not the exception. The doctor asked a simple question and got slapped around for it by his representative. Disgraceful! But here we go: In the case of this Scott, are his constituents in the main in favor of government run healthcare? And is there a racial element involved in this case? I will be frank. ARE blacks supporting this healthcare bill more than the whites in Scott`s specific district? I suspect so and I suspect this is a mere fact.
BUT here`s another fact: What these illiberals are trying to foist off on US (ALL Americans) is terrible for this nation. ONLY bureaucrats will benefit in the end. The American people will only find LESS freedom and LESS happiness. You cannot have happiness without freedom. It is that simple.
As to those who would argue racism this and racism that, I would say there is racism there has been racism and it will remain with us for a while. BUT, it is this very mixture of diverse peoples which/that(=you correct me here, please!)makes this country so dynamic. I have been abroad enough to make this statement with confidence and I am no anthropologist. As time passes and the US sees more inter-marriage we will find the race card very hard to play indeed. And cheers to that! I do not care what color a person is. I don`t care if Scott is purple and the doc is spotted like a leopard, that politician treated his constituent poorly. Yeah, I have digressed here. My apologies. Well, my son is of mixed ethnicity, I can tell you that. He happens to be dating someone of a third ethnicity. As long as they are happy, okay. I will only be happy when we can hear the word “race” and say, “Huh??”
This comment has meandered like a lost river, I admit. Perhaps they are Brain Droppings at best.
But I am gonna post this anyway.

Besides, with Nationalized Healthcare on the horizon, why on earth would he even consider having a ‘town hall’ on Nationalized Healthcare that will affect an entire Nation when he has an itty bitty congressional district roadway project to discuss?

I’ve said before was that one of the weaknesses of the Alinsky method by the left is that, because it relies on bullying, it cannot survive well when people fight back.

I also realized another weakness of alinsky (remind me to never capitalize that name).. Anyway, the weakness is that alinsky never counted on the proliferation of citizen media.. ie the phone camera and a blog. I realize the clip we saw was probably from a news camera.

However, in the old days, the media could just bury the footage and story. However, today, there is a good chance it will be posted on someone’s blog. If that happens enough, there is no longer a need for the lamestream media.

So, keep your camera phones handy folks.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

(Ya know…I can’t say it any better than that.)

Douglasville, Georgia is about 50 miles outside Atlanta, and if this fool is their congressman now, gerrymandering is the result. Originally, people moved to Douglasville to get AWAY from idiots like this, but I guess they didn’t move far enough. He does sound like the idiot racist Cynthia McKinney, and is equally “entitled” to his “success” because he’s black and perpetually angry. Perfect. Washington has become a permanent ship of fools.

From Thomas Paine’s Common Sense:

“But there is another and greater distinction for which no truly natural or religious reason can be assigned, and that is, the distinction of men into kings and subjects. Male and female are the distinctions of nature, good and bad are the distinctions of heaven; but how a race of men came into the world so exulted above the rest, and distinguished like some new species, is worth inquiring into, and whether they are the means of happiness or of misery to mankind.

” In the early stages of the world, according to scripture chronology, there were no kings; the consequences of which, there were no wars; it is the pride of kings which throw mankind into confusion. ….”

“Government by kings was first introduced into the world by the heathens, from whom the children of Israel copied the custom. It was the most prosperous invention the devil ever set foot for the promotion of idolatry. The heathen paid divine honors to their deceased kings, and the Christian world hath improved on the plan by doing the fame to their living ones. How impious is the title of sacred majesty applied to a worm, who in the midst of his splendor is crumbling to dust.”

“As the exulting one man so greatly above the rest cannot be justified on the equal rights of nature, so neither can it defended on the authority of scripture, for the will of the Almighty, as declared by Gideon and the prophet Samuel, expressly disaproves of government by kings.”

“Near three thousand years passed away from the Mosaic account of creation, till the Jews under a national delusion requested a king. Till then, their form of government(except in the extraordinary cases where the Almighty interposed)was a kind of republic by a judge and the elders of the tribe. Kings they had none, and it was held sinful to acknowledge any being under that title but the Lord of Hosts.

And when a man seriously reflects on on the idolatrous homage which is paid to the persons of kings, he need not wonder, that the Almighty, ever jealous of His honor, should disapprove of a form of government which so impiously invades the prerogative of heaven.”

“Monarchy is ranked in scripture as one of the sins of the Jews, for which a curse in reserve is announced against them.”

“The Jews, elate with success, and attributing it to the generalship of Gideon, proposed making him a king, saying, rule thou over us, thou and thy son, and thy son’s son. Here was temptation in its fullest extent; not a kingdom only, but a hereditary one, but Gideon in the piety of his foul replied, I will not rule over you, neither shall my son rule over you, the Lord shall rule over you. Words need not be more explicit; Gideon doth not decline the honor but denieth their right to give it, neither doth he compliment them with invented declarations of his thanks, but in the positive stile of a prophet charges them disaffection to their proper sovereign, the King of Heaven.”
They are in power. We are their servants. They are acting as modern day kings and queens. We dare not approach, we dare not ask, we dare not disagree,, we dare not protest,,, no! We must submit! We must obey!
God help what will be left for our children.

Inever was a Reagan fan. I didn’t think he was a great commuicator..

I was one amazed that he struck people that way.

I wasn’t surprised by his disease.
And I’m not surprsed that his ideas need to be abandonded.

this arrogant black politician thing is getting kinda old.

la.rt.wngr on August 8, 2009 at 10:39 AM

We have only ourselves to blame. We elect these prigs.

ronsfi on August 8, 2009 at 10:50 AM

The Dr was white. This scumbag only represents blacks in his mind.

So he was right to implicitly accuse the doctor of not being one of his constituents.

Racial gerrymandering will get you this. Congratulations everyone. Welcome to the 21st Century.

This piece of crap thinks the people work for him.He not only needs to be kicked out of office but run out of the state of Ga.Maybe white voters in his district don,t count.The RNC needs this video and run it over and over next year.

Seems we are approaching the 11th Century far faster.

coldwarrior on August 8, 2009 at 11:23 AM

Wow.
I wouldn’t be surprised if these ‘representatives’ started collecting cameras and cellphones at the door.

Just wow. I’m so glad that was reported on. I’m in shock that it even was..but so glad.

bridgetown on August 8, 2009 at 11:31 AM

Oh, how terrible, someone actually asked a question! What do those low life constituents want anyway, a congressman who actually represents them? After all, that doctor is stupid, or he would realize that this is the best solution for health care since sliced bread

flytier on August 8, 2009 at 11:38 AM

We have only ourselves to blame. We elect these prigs.

ronsfi on August 8, 2009 at 10:50 AM

Not quite. We allow these prigs to be elected out of fear of being called a racist for opposing them to strongly.

Sporty1946 on August 8, 2009 at 11:52 AM
