At a town hall meeting in Gurnee this weekend, Rep. Joe Walsh, Tea Party-Ill., made it clear where the line between real Americanism and anti-American lies. It lies with Walsh. Anyone who agrees with Walsh is a real American. Anyone to Walsh’s left is a socialist trying to undermine this country’s core values.
“This whole Occupy Wall Street…stuff…is a well-orchestrated, well-funded far left effort to disrupt the American people and rile up Obama’s left base.”
“I think these are generally spoiled, pampered, unfocused clueless young people and a smattering of other people who don’t understand this country and are advocating anti-American solutions. They don’t at all represent America.”
“What about the veterans who take part in Occupy Wall Street?” a woman asked. “Do you consider them anti-American?”
“I don’t know how many veterans are part of the Occupy protest,” said Walsh, who has never served in the military. “I can’t imagine it’s many, but anyone who would advocate socialist solutions to certain problems in this country, they don’t understand this country.”
Tell us how you really feel, Joe! I’d love to know how OWS can be simultaneously well-orchestrated and well-funded yet unfocused and clueless.
This is the same Teabagger who suggested securing the border with alligators.
