Tea Party Patriots at Golden Harvest Farm, Kinderhook, NY

Democrat Congressman Scott Murphy (CD 20) appeared at Golden Harvest Farm in Kinderhook, NY, yesterday.

Although more peaceful than some town halls lately, it was obvious that a great number of his constituents have serious issues with the Healthcare bills before the Congress.

Joan has videos of the folks waiting for the meeting to start.  Notice the number of signs opposing nationalized healthcare.  Also notice the idiot holding the sign “Black President, Latina Judge, Get Over It”.  Obviously he has taken the far left directive to brand all patriotic Americans who oppose the nationalization of our healthcare system as ‘racists’.  We’re seeing a lot of this lately. When you have to inject racism into every argument, where it obviously does not belong, it is a sure sign you are losing.

Here are some more short clips from Youtube user PFK2002.

About 20 protesters gathered in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., Thursday to let Democratic Rep. Scott Murphy know they oppose the health care plans in Washington. They carried signs saying: “Obamacare Seniors beware! Rationing is here,” and “If socialized medicine is best … why didn’t Ted Kennedy go to Canada?” Motorists honked as they drove by.

Most said they learned about the event from various community groups that oppose the health care overhaul. All rejected the notion that they had been organized on a large scale, or had connections to the insurance industry.

John Wagner, a 71-year-old retired salesman, said he wasn’t affiliated with any political groups. He said he and his wife, 68-year-old Anne Wagner, came try to talk to Murphy. Both of the registered independents voted for Murphy’s Republican opponent.

“We think it’s the start of our government taking over every facet of our economy, and of our health, to make sure that the government runs everything,” John Wagner said.

At one point, a constituent asked Murphy if he thought the country was headed for universal health care.

“That phrase means a lot of things to a lot of people,” Murphy said. His answer was greeted with a chorus of groans.
