Rep. Melissa Bean IL8 sends in the thug **EDIT**
The face of a Thugocracy. I watched this video about 15 minutes ago, and I am still shaken by the naked agression in the face of that big guy. I can't believe what I just saw. How DARE she! She acted like she was at an AA meeting with all her concern about people's privacy. It was a PUBLIC meeting with a PUBLIC official, for crying out loud.
I was saddened to notice there weren't very many objectors to Lurch roaming around the meeting though, so perhaps the inimidation did work, although the phrase "win the battle, but lose the war" comes to mind. Just a note: I sure hope none of the congresscritters pull a stunt like that down here--we tend to be a rowdy bunch anyway and damned sure wouldn't allow that sort of intimidation.
November is coming. We are ready.
They called down the thunder, and now they are about to reap the whirlwind.
Crank it UP!!
Edit 1**If you are as disgusted by this crackpot and her minion, make a difference for the opposition. Here is the website for her opponent, Joe Walsh @ Joe Walsh For Congress
From an eyewitness to the intimidation:
Commentor : JeanWTPUSA
On Thursday, August 12, I was there at the meeting with Representative Melissa Bean (IL-8) that was held at the Round Lake Library. The meeting was billed as a Financial Education seminar to teach citizens how to manage their credit card debt. What happened at this meeting was anything but educational. During the meeting, which I attended, citizens started to ask questions about jobs, government spending and the federal deficit. As you can see from the video, every time a citizen would attempt to ask a question, Melissa Bean’s THUG, who we were told worked for the Round Lake Library, would walk over to that person and hover over them to intimidate them. This is exactly what was shown in the video even though it has been edited. The THUG was not bending down to reading anything. He was bending over a person who was asking Bean a question to intimidate her. I was about 6 feet away and saw it all. This Thug exhibited the same behavior which went on during the course of the entire meeting without Bean saying a word about the blatant intimidation she knew her constituents must be feeling.
It is obvious from Bean’s obfuscation that she chose this type of forum so she would not have to answer any direct questions about her voting record. Instead of having an open Town hall forum where citizens are free to have a dialogue with their Representative, Bean chose to have a representative from the Illinois State Treasury come in and lecture her constituents on how they should pay down their credit card debt and start saving. How ironic when the Federal Government has spent over 13 Trillion dollars and the majority of the states are on the verge of bankruptcy
I, along with many others in attendance, felt that every attempt to ask Bean a question was either “shut down” by Bean personally or through the intimidation tactics of her THUG. Is this the type of “transparency” we were promised? Why does Bean feel that Thuggery is acceptable?
If you don’t approve of Bean’s tactics, please DONATE to Joe Walsh her opponent at http://walshforcongress.com/ Bean is well financed and Walsh isn’t. Money for Joe will help Bean go in November!
Edit 2 * Fox Nation has their teeth in this story now. Don't expect to see it go away anytime soon Congresswoman Bean.
