Recall the case of Maurice Schwenkler in Denver. Schwenkler, who is a “transgender” activist connected to the SEIU supported group Colorado Citizens Coalition, was arrested for smashing eleven windows at the Democrat headquarters last year. “While Schwenkler does not appear in the state’s voter registration database, a person by that name in November 2008 received $500 from a political 527 committee called Colorado Citizens Coalition for ‘communications,’ according to campaign finance disclosures,” the Denver Post reported.
Did Schwenkler attack the Democrats because he opposes Obamacare? Hardly. It was an attempt to blame those opposed to Obamacare and make them look like violent thugs. Fortunately, Schwenkler was caught by the cops and the real story came out. The truth, however, was dwarfed by the initial sensationalistic story and the insinuation of Tea Party activists gone wild. News reports of Schwenkler’s real motivation were greeted by the sound of crickets.
SEIU thugs attacked Tea Party protesters at a Rep. Russ Carnahan town hall in St. Louis around the same time. “Union thugs viciously attacked a patriot, Kenneth Gladney, who was handing out Gadsen flags outside the stage-managed event. The St. Louis Tea Party was also demonstrating against Democrats attempting to force Obamacare through Congress,” Infowars.com reported on August 7, 2009.
Did Tea Party activists beat up members of the Congressional Black Caucus? No. In fact, they did not even spit on them as the Democrats claim.
Fortunately, Democrat and “progressive” efforts to portray Tea Party activists and millions of ordinary Americans outraged over Obama’s authoritarian health care “reform” as brick-toting and gas line cutting neanderthals will continue to fall flat.
Fifty-four percent of surveyed Americans oppose Obamacare and only 41% approve, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll conducted on March 21. “Among insured Americans, 82 percent rate their health coverage positively. Among insured people who’ve experienced a serious or chronic illness or injury in their family in the last year, an enormous 91 percent are satisfied with their care, and 86 percent are satisfied with their coverage,” ABC News reported last October.
