It Begins… Dem Congresswoman Brings In Street Thug at Town Hall Meeting to Threaten Constituents
The Hill | 8-16-10 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 08/16/2010 9:43:34 AM PDT by Justaham

Rep. Melissa Bean (D-IL) brought Bruno the Bone-Crusher with her to a town hall meeting this weekend to threaten constituents. The meeting was held at Round Lake, Illinois Public library on Thursday August 12. The Obamacare-supporting democrat allowed the thug to roam around the room to intimidate constituents from asking questions.

Where’d she get this guy, from the WWE?

It’s a mistake. Bruno is actually her gigolo.

They attend hair bleaching and botox sessions together.

Let me say this about that, finding the Nazis are running for office as Democrats in the Chicago suburbs isn't at all surprising.

We forgot to denazify the place after The Big One.

Not too late though.

To Hell with being intimidated.
If any of these fools put their hands on you, kick them square in the groin.

They were given the go-ahead to use intimidation by Holder and the DoJ.

The congresswoman asked — in a stance and manner that conveyed a demand — that the man turn off his video to “respect the privacy of people”. There’s no expectation of privacy in a public meeting. That’s why we HOLD PUBLIC MEETINGS.

Anyway, I’d have loved to have been there. Not that it would have helped. But I love counter-intimidation.

I usually skip videos, preferring to read text. THIS, however, is important, watchable, and scary.

A collpaseable night-stick to Bruno’s nads...and he will be less intimidating real quick.

Sounds good but this is so wrong to allow these thugs to do this. Anyone who did anything would have been arrested by the cops who back her.

I wouldn’t be surprised if this guy was an off duty cop.

Thank you to the courageous people who put this together and who persisted in asking the right questions even in the face of intimidation. This is what we need all over America so that there is no place to run, no place to hide for these corrupt demagogues. I hope a copy can be sent to everyone in her district.

Ha. Me too. I used to be rather quiet and mild mannered but after two ex-wives (and two ex-mothers-in-law) I find myself enjoying getting in the faces of idiots from time to time.

No need to get physical. When he leans over you yell at the top of your lungs, “NO, I DON’T HAVE ANY HEROIN! YOU’LL HAVE TO ASK SOMEONE ELSE AND NO YOU CAN’T HAVE SEX WITH MY 5 YEAR OLD!”

Works like a charm.

Hey man, way to go. And you even got pics of Bruno the Intimidator.

The Congresswomen didn’t look at all comfortable and fled the so-called town meeting as soon as she could. Obviously she’s not accustomed to being asked serious questions.

I’m curious if you actually felt threatened by Bruno?

Bully boy must not have gotten it all out of his system when he was in grade school.

When faced with this kind of thing, there’s only one way to deal, that’s to stand up and loudly denounce the brownshirt tactics and demand he be removed from the room because he is making you feel uncomfortable. And then to warn that you will be talking to Fox News about the behavior you are being subjected to.

Make certain someone is recording the exchange, preferably clandestinely so you don’t get the tape confiscated.

There is another side to the ‘pols’ bringing body guards to their “Town Halls.” They are frightened. They sense what is coming. There is real anger by many members of the public towards those in office. In addition, those in office are increasingly coming from groups that in many instances are perceived as not belonging to our society, i.e. perverts. The body guards are a sign of the coming storm.

It might be SOP for Illinois, but this won't go over very well in the south. I hope the video goes viral and that they bury her because of it.

Outside of IL, one could get shot for unwanted physica contact.

Just called some guy...at the Washington office. I got the sense that he was embarrassed...I told him he needed to find a new job. Ha!!

He said he couldn't comment...

Also got the impression...he had had plenty of calls about that meeting, and the thug.

Makes you think, doesn’t it? The answers to the most relevant questions can be found in the Book of Revelation. In spite of minor upticks in the short term, the overall trend will be downward. We must still fight the good fight.
