Whatever Happened to "Grass Roots Activism"?

As anti-war protesters called President Bush "Hitler", "Satan", etc. etc., the state-run media told us that this was democracy at its finest, we were hearing the "voice of the American people" expressed by a patriotic "grass roots movement" against the war!

Hmmm. Looks like "grass roots activism" has gone out of style. Here's how they're describing the groundswell of opposition to the government takeover of health care being expressed at Town Hall meetings this month:

"Angry teabaggers and other opponents of health care reform are heckling members of Congress at their town hall meetings back home in an effort to sway the debate and drown out reform supporters."

Admittedly, "Talking Points Memo" is a left-wing funded website. But there's no question that the state-run media has overwhelmingly covered these protests in the same way!


Barney Frank Admits the REAL Goal Behind "Health Care Reform"

Barney Frank, who never seems totally in control of what comes out of his mouth anyway, revealed the REAL goal behind the "health care reform" bill at the end of July.

This happened on July 27th, as Frank was confronted by a group called "singlepayeraction.org", which is in favor of a so-called "single payer" health care system. ("Single payer" is a euphemism for "100% completely government run").

Frank said, quote: "I think if we get a good public option, it will lead to single payer, that's the best way to reach single payer".

He says that at 28 seconds into this video:

Town Hall Protests Across the Country

With Congress in recess and the Dems out in full force attempting to sell their fraudulent "Health Care Reform" legislation, protests against the bill appear to be breaking out everywhere.

This is "Democrat/Republican/Democrat again" Arlen Specter attempting to explain, foolishly, why he can't read the legislation himself:




This is left-wing Dem Rep. Lloyd Doggett of Texas being protested by a large crowd:



This is Kathleen Sibelius, speaking about it to many of the people her department branded as "right-wing extremists":
