Tea Baggers just keep on showing their classless asses - guns and updates

Things seem to be getting pretty heated in the Capitol with crowds of anti-Reform/Tea Party activists going through the halls shouting slogans and epithets at Democratic members of Congress.

As our Brian Beutler reports, a few moments ago in Longworth office building, a group swarmed a very calm looking Henry Waxman, as he got on the elevator, with shouts of "Kill the bill!" "You liar! You crook!"

Not long before, Rep. Barney Frank got an uglier version of the treatment. Just after Frank rounded a corner to leave the building, an older protestor yelled "Barney, you faggot." The surrounding crowd of protestors then erupted in laughter.

At one point, Capitol police officer threatened to throw a group of protestors out of the building but that only seemed to inflame them more; and apparently none were ejected. Note that this was in the Longworth building, not the Capitol building proper. But I'm a bit surprised that this is being allowed to occur anywhere in the Capitol complex. From Brian's description it sounds like menacing.

If this were the 60s, their classless asses would be in jail. At least they could have been moved outside where they could still exercise their Freedom of Speech and their abject stupidity.

UPDATE: TPM reports that those good Christian Tea Buggers yelled "nigger" at Rep. John Lewis (D-GA).
It'll be interesting to see how the MSM covers this.

UPDATE: The Washington Post: "Some protesters cursed at lawmakers and at one point -- when Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) wanted to walk across the street to an office building -- he was ushered into a car by his security detail and driven a couple hundred feet through the screaming crowd."

Not surprisingly Fox News reported there were "thousands" of protesters. The WP estimated hundreds.

  1. Classless and bankrupt thinking is their calling card and increasing threatening behavior. If, more like when the bill is on the President's desk, they will either go into a deep funk or erupt.

  2. un-fuckin-believable. But then again why are we surprised? A group of the most ignorant, hateful, racist M F ers in our great country and they are given free reign to spew their hate, even face to face with our great elected leaders. This country is going to hell in a handbasket because of fuckin teabaggers!!

  5. They are weak and paranoid. We are strong and reasonably stable. We will prevail. It's much more comfortable than going to hell.

  8. Actually, I am glad that the tea baggers are showing their true side...

    Got to get that crap out in the open and show them for what they really are...

    What MAY have once been a sincere movement has now turned into a mush of redneck anger and hate...with the video from Ohio, the racing through the halls of congress, and now this....

    Its an implosion...and it looks like Fox News is doing pretty much the same thing...

  9. I hope the TB infesting our nation will repel the majority of decent Americans, even those who might be against HC reform. These people are like rabid animals.
