Harry Reid: Town-hall protesters are “evil-mongers”

posted at 2:41 pm on August 13, 2009 by Allahpundit

It’s his own coinage, as nasty and awkward as the man himself. And like a two-year-old who’s just crapped on the carpet, he’s curiously proud of it.

Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader, was having second thoughts – or was he? – about the way he had characterized people who are disrupting town halls with “lies, innuendo and rumor,” and not letting others speak. They are, he said, “evil-mongers.”

A day after tossing out the term “evil-mongers” in the closing speech of his annual clean energy conference, Reid was alternating between pride in his coinage and knowing that he probably should be trying to defuse, not escalate, the turmoil erupting at town meetings across the country on health care reform.

“It was an original with me. I maybe could have been less descriptive,” Reid said. He also said, “I doubt that you’ll hear it from me again.” But a few minutes later, he couldn’t resist a sardonic little joke. “I feel I haven’t done anything to embarrass them,” Reid said of his children. “Except maybe call somebody an evil-monger.”

Mind you, this is a guy who’s up for reelection next year and whose unfavorable rating already stands at 50 percent. I’d love to see the internal polling that’s convinced him and Baron Hill that egregiously demonizing protesters — whom more Americans are sympathetic to than not — is a sure path to victory. Consider this further proof, though, that William McGurn was right in dubbing ObamaCare the left’s new religion, with protester-heretics now officially deemed “evil” for shouting about it. Exit question: Isn’t this actually the left’s line on the right in all policy disagreements? Pick any issue you like, foreign or domestic, and liberal conventional wisdom has some nefarious explanation available for the conservative position. Warmongering, racism, exploiting the poor, “controlling women’s bodies” — you name it, they’ve got an “evil” ulterior motive to account for it. I wonder why it took Reid this long to drop the E-bomb. He must really want to win this debate.

Reid left no doubt he intends to get a health reform bill passed in the Senate, no matter what erupts at town hall meetings and whether any Republicans support the end result. “We can’t let the insurance industry the free market win another round. We’re going to win this round,” he said.

This guy is a scumbag, but do not underestimate him or Granny Botox.

Of all the members of Congress who are up for re-election in 2010, Senator Harry Reid is by far the most culpable for the out-of-control federal spending, taxpayer-funded bailouts and push for higher taxes. As Senate Majority Leader he has pushed through trillions of dollars in new spending, ran up our national debt, pushed for tax increases and cut sweetheart deals with lobbyists in order to push through federal bailouts.

Unfortunately this not mathematically possible. The R’s have twice as many seats to protect as the D’s in 2010, just the way it is.

It would a major accomplishment to to wrest tha super-majority away in the Senate. Numerically regain a malority in either body just cannot be done, so the R’s need to focus their effort and $ on taking every seat they can in the Senate in ’10 and fillibuster like hell!

Then in ’12 the shoe is on the other foot and the D’s have twice as much territory to protect as the R’s, and at the rate their going, that could a blood bath!

The trick will be to hold the line enough so that there is enough remaining to salvage the damage done by The Won & the DNC!

Maybe it’s a can’t have it both ways situation though I hope not. In order to get rid of the Harry Reid’s of the Senate the health bill will have to pass and the Dems take the brunt of the backlash. If the health care bill doesn’t pass, Harry may be still with us. I read where Nevada is full of SEIU folks because of places like Vegas and Reno. We all know how they’re going to vote already because they’ll lose a kneecap or two if they don’t.

Reid epitomizes the problem with the current politicians. Even if they listen they can’t or won’t understand.

Daniel Hannan addressed this so quickly the other night that it was easy to miss it.

I guess I sort of knew this but never heard it put as well as he said it.

I prefer “white malcontent” as coined by one of our favorite columnists Maureen Dowd:

Instead of a multicultural tableau of beaming young idealists on screen, we see ugly scenes of mostly older and white malcontents, disrupting forums where others have come to actually learn something. Instead of hope, we get swastikas, death threats and T-shirts proclaiming “Proud Member of the Mob.”

They declared us evil long ago. A little essay written 50 years ago whose reading would greatly benefit everyone going to these meetings.

The turn will come when we entrust the conduct of our affairs to men who understand that their first duty as public officials is to divest themselves of the power they have been given. It will come when Americans, in hundreds of communities throughout the nation, decide to put the man in office who is pledged to enforce the Constitution and restore the Republic. Who will proclaim in a campaign speech: “I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution, or that have failed in their purpose, or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is ‘needed’ before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And if I should later be attacked for neglecting my constituents’ ‘interests,’ I shall reply that I was informed their main interest is liberty and that in that cause I am doing the very best I can.”

Anybody catch the back door job and our last US bind issue?

9 of the 10 biggest buyers last year are to date net sellers this year. When issue a bond sale anything less than 100% sold on the public market is a vote of no confidence in your currency. So in prediction that the net seller thing was likely to result in bad tidings, the treasury had those banks that are under the TARP thumb pick up the 47% that what was left surplus on the market.

Then at precisely the same time, and on the same day 10 days later, the Fed quietly releived them of those bonds.

Result? The US Treasury created a faux sale by having the US Fed by the same paper issue to hide the fact that no one savvy in the value of the dollar would touch it!

This is called monetization, or in laymans terms, printing money! Currently Geithner has a request in to raise the debt ceiling now so as to be able to pull this sleight of hand trick on our next bond issue.

So as you hear all the bathering idiots trying to tell that we are coming out of our current slump, realize that no-one i”in-the-know” is, literally, buying it!

Archimedes on August 13, 2009 at 3:34 PM

Let me be clear. Every seat in the House is up for re-election in 2010. This happens every two years.

Numerically, the Dems have more to protect than the GOP in the House.

In the Senate, there are 36 seats up for election. Currently, they are evenly split between Dem and GOP – 18 each. But since we are 20 seats down, then I agree that it is numerically impossible to get a majority in the Senate.

But that is not the case in the House at all. I understand that retaking the House majority is highly unlikely, but let’s not kill all hope entirely.

Awaken brave Nevada. Embrace your proud heritage and flush this fraud. Awaken to the harm your representative, this shill, this huckster has caused us all. Return to your common senses, Nevada. Make America proud

August Horch on August 13, 2009 at 5:39 PM

I wish I lived in his ward – I’d have a bumber sticker made that says: Evil Mongers. Wish I felt like I could carry a sign in church that said the same thing. Come on nevada, get rid of the bumb!

What do you expect from one of the leading members of the NUTZIE Party???

chickasaw42 on August 13, 2009 at 6:03 PM

Methinks these guys have too much faith that ACORN will deliver their elections to them. Still, it makes me wonder what Rahm and the boys have going behind the scenes that the whole lot of them can continue to act in such brazenly obtuse ways.

schafkopf on August 13, 2009 at 3:43 PM

This worries me as well, they are acting waaaaay too sure of themselves in light of current polling!

Archimedes on August 13, 2009 at 4:06 PM

My thinking for some time now is they plan on either finding a way to call off or suspend the elections, or they plan to cheat (again) via ACORN/NBPP/Unions.

The hubris is simply too apparent. Politicians are not smart but they are extremely cunning and crafty rat weasel bastards and I find it hard to believe they would be this artless when it comes to dealing with the general public

My third thought is they are actively trying to provoke a revolution/civil war for reasons unknown at this time. I used to think that was hugely tinfoilish but now…
not so much

Sugarbuzz on August 13, 2009 at 6:18 PM

pathetic. childish too. what really gets me is these personal attacks on voters, and yet people continue to support a guy like this.

Now let me get this straight, Dingy Harry!

If I am against the current healthcare plan that your boss is promulgating and I show up and verbally express my opposition to that plan, as is my right to do so, in your eyes, I am an “evil-monger”?!!!!

Oh how the people of Nevada need to recall your sorry rear end out of the Senate, and I mean as quickly as possible!!!!

pilamaye on August 13, 2009 at 6:43 PM

Well, what do you expect from someone who says we(tourists who go to Washington on vacation in the summer) that we STINK!!!!!!!!!!!! Congress needs to be purged.

While Evil Monger sounds a little comic bookish, it does have a ring to it. Harry (Butt Munch) Reid must be running out of adjectives to describe us however. (He is from Searchlight NV)

Vote the bums out!

To be fair, they’ve come out foursquare against dwarf-tossing.

guntotinglibertarian on August 13, 2009 at 4:14 PM

True but ONLY because they had a hissy fit on a PC basis over the term “dwarf.” They have no problems with “little people (over the age of 21, not innocent, wise sign-hating children) tossing” with the informed consent of the tossee and indemnification of further shortening after tossing and excluding the presumed pejorative “short stack” as part of the accepted nomenclature.

Hit the button too fast.

I want to help that little gnome out by proposing an insult generator to help make his life a little easier.

Harry my boy, pick one from column A and one from column B and you are set to go. Share this with Gibbsy as well so that he can be ready with the insults.

Column A Column B
wickedness dealer
degeneracy monger
depravity trader
villainy promoter
nefariousness hawker
malevolence peddler

There you have it Harry, you old douchebag you. Ready made insults at a moments notice, all 36 of them.

Have at it.

yobobbyb on August 13, 2009 at 7:08 PM

If I were Reid, I’d be very very worried about an angry Mob.

All that good money to get this idiot elected.

All those overnight flights from Philly and Newark, and Chicago, to make sure Dirty Harry understood what those envelopes full of cash were about.

And it is all about to go away.

It is the only reason I can think of as to why Dirty Harry is hanging on like a puppy with a new chew toy.

coldwarrior on August 13, 2009 at 7:09 PM

And like a two-year-old who’s just crapped on the carpet, he’s curiously proud of it.
Sums Harry and his life’s work. LOL.

Hunt035 on August 13, 2009 at 2:43 PM

It comes naturally… just as as “evil” spelled backward is “live”, “Harry Reid” spelled backward is “di-er-y-rrah” (thanks Hooked on Phonics!)

National Man Dwarf Love Association? NMDLA

Wow, that is really out there!
