Angry protesters screamed, yelled and banged on windows as officers hurried to guard the entrances to the facility, where U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor was trying to discuss the various health care reform proposals being debated in Congress. One photojournalist said (http://www.wtsp.com/news/local/story.aspx?storyid=111086&catid=8 - broken link) that a fistfight broke out inside the building, reports WTSP.

Many of the hundreds of protesters said that they had been inspired by Fox News host Glenn Beck and a conservative activist group, according to the St. Petersburg Times:

If people are violent, arrest them!

I want names and faces, not some obscure reference or third hand opinion that these are typical republicans who watch Fox and Glen Beck.

Interesting as the "Kill Him!" story that spalshed acoss every major news outlet also was reported by a single journalist in crowd of 4,500 including numerous security, law enforcement and Secret Service agents. At this point in time anything I read from media with their obvious left wing bent I take with a grain of salt. They cannot be trusted.

Secret Service says "Kill him" allegation unfounded | Wilkes-Barre breaking news | timesleader.com - The Times Leader
News organizations including ABC, The Associated Press, The Washington Monthly and MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann reported the claim, with most attributing the allegations to the Times-Tribune story.



Agent Bill Slavoski said he was in the audience, along with an undisclosed number of additional secret service agents and other law enforcement officers and not one heard the comment.



“I was baffled,” he said after reading the report in Wednesday’s Times-Tribune.


He said the agency conducted an investigation Wednesday, after seeing the story, and could not find one person to corroborate the allegation other than Singleton.

Where were the AMA supporters ? Didn't see their bus.
Where were the Union supporters ? Didn't see their bus either.

"
""""The spectacle at the Children's Board in Ybor City sounded more like a wrestling cage match than a panel discussion on national policy, and it was just the latest example of a health care meeting disrupted by livid protesters.
The Tampa Tribune reports that some protesters carried racist caricatures of President Obama ""

Hot Air » Blog Archive » Report: Violence breaks out at Tampa town hall on health care

People were waiting in line for hours to get in to this town hall. The democrats opened the back doors to sneak in their supporters, not allowing the majority of those who were waiting in line to get in.

Now, tell me how fair this is?

Of course, when you then have angry people yelling and shouting, that's when the liberals take notice.

Disgusting behavior.

"Several of the protester's signs bore an image of Obama with his face painted as the Joker, an image that drew protests of racism locally.."
I had no idea depicting someone as The Joker was racist?

How effing fair is it to take over a DISUSSION and NOT LET ANYONE SPEAK OR RESPOND OR DISCUSS ANYTHING LIKE ADULTS!

Maybe if the drooling repubs could act like intelligent adults they'd be welcomed.....why should decent people have to put up with screaming mobs?????


We agree! The repub mobs are showing TYPICAL disgusting behaviour!!!

The only racists were the ones trying to claim a Joker image was racist.
