A Long, Hot Summer of Hate
The recent musings of Conservative talk show/cable hosts like Rush Limbaugh, who attempts to align President Barack Obama and his administration with the Third Reich and Nazi Germany and Glenn Beck, who was named by protestors as their inspiration when they appeared at a recent townhall meeting and who has recently declared President Obama hates White people, are noted in this article, suggesting their commentary seems geared to enrage and rile those who may hear their words.
As members of the U.S. Congress head home to their districts during the August 2009 summer recess, it is planned many will be hosting townhall meetings to inform their constituents of the bills currently being considered in the process of overhauling health care and more region specific concerns in their respective states.
While genuine misunderstanding and misinformation has fueled the concerns and fears of many who are attending townhall meetings across the United States, believing they will suffer as a result of possible changes to the current health care system, there are citizens being organized by those who are linked to the insurance industry, who have been issued talking points instructing some citizens attend to disrupt and prevent meaningful dialog at these townhall meetings.
