Stout Street Clinic: ObamaThugs Rough Up Peaceful Protesters in Denver

This pair of images below records of one the more sickening incidents taking place during Nancy Pelosi's visit to the Stout Street Clinic in Denver last week.

The first picture is from El Marco's photo-essay, "
Nancy and the Astroturfers." As he notes:
Take note of the lady on the right. She is holding a sign that reads “Pants on Fire” with Pelosi’s image. The image is repeated three times on her sign. There are no other words. I left the event early but the photo below, from the Denver Post, shows what I missed. The astrozoid on the left below, with the HOPE T-shirt, decided that she didn’t like the Nancy Pants on Fire sign. Not a problem. Just grab it.

The woman in black struggles to maintain her free speech while calling for help from police nearby.

The Denver Post's piece is here. It includes this caption:
"A supporter of health care reform, left, who did not want to give her name, pushes forward to rip a sign out of Kris McLay's hands outside the Stout Street Clinic visited by Nancy Pelosi."

The "supporter of health reform" is an ObamaCare thug. We've been seeing them in action for weeks now.

Just as bad, in the sense of doing violence to the truth, has been the mainstream press. (See for example, Newsbusters, "
Media Ignore Democrat Astroturfing at Pelosi Event.") Bloggers have been providing crucial coverage around the country, documenting the town hall protests and the Democratic Party's extremist efforts to quash dissenting opinion. Things are so messed up that SEIU, subsequent to their union goons beating up Kenneth Gladney, spliced raw video footage to revise the story and make it look like their own people were attacked. The rank bullying and dishonesty among the Democrats is unbefitting of a worthy opponent. Indeed, from the White House on down - with its call to "flag" dissenters - we're seeing the total self-immolation of the "hope and change" promise from 2008. The Democrats are not only losing the healthcare debate, they deserve to lose. They've dissed the common sense and good graces of everyday Americans, and they've underestimated the strength of genuine civic solidarity and traditional grassroots community action.

For all their strenuous efforts to smear conservative street activists as "Nazis" and "teabaggers," the agony of defeat is starting to sink in. See, "
Ten Things Obama Did Wrong on Health-Care Reform." (Via Memeorandum.)

It's just a matter of time before this whole fiasco boils over and somebody gets killed. I'm surprised it hasn't happened already. My advice to anyone planning on attending any political gathering----bring a camera and use it to prove who started what.

Where does grabbing a sign and assault cross? When is a thrown elbow appropriate to the situation?
