Countering Right-Wing Nuts and their Lies: Cut the Crap!
The right-wing nuts were out here in Memphis today to "protest" at a Townhall meeting by our 9th Dist. Rep. Steve Cohen on healthcare. Most were not from the 9th District, but from other conservative districts around Memphis. As they have across the nation, they chanted and yelled all the same right-wing lies and talking points. They were rude and wouldn't allow anyone to talk or present opposing facts.
Here are some sites to bookmark and use to counter these debunked LIES:
My question is why are right-wing protesters, many old, able to mobilize large protests and the liberal/progressives cannot counter them? What happened to the "radical" protesters of the 1960s and 1970s? Why are the liberals being so polite and quiet and allowing the right-wing to KILL not only a single-payer insurance system, but even a weak "public option"?
