On March 17th outside of Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy's district office, Teabaggers mocked and threw things at an old man who said he had Parkinson's. They told him "he's in the wrong end of town to ask for handouts", called him a communist and threw money at him to "pay for his health care."
"This is incredible," House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) told reporters of the slurs. "It's shocking to me." He said he hadn't heard such vitriol since March 15, 1960 when he was protesting segregation laws that forced him to sit in the back of buses. "A lot of us have been saying for a long time that much of this, much of this, is not about health care at all," Clyburn said. "I think a lot of those people today demonstrated this is not about health care."
The teabaggers were never about taxes or health care. They're just typical GOP, throwing a tantrum while spewing their core values: ignorance, hatred and bigotry.
