Bear witness to compassionate conservatism in action, Teabagger style:
…the clip shows a man holding a sign, explaining that he has Parkinson’s and needs health care reform to pass. When he sat on the pavement near the reform opponents, a conservative activist proceeded to lecture the man: “You’re looking for a hand-out, you’re in the wrong end of town. Nothing for free over here, you have to work for everything you get.”
This is not the country that I love:
Another far-right protestor mocked the man, dropping a dollar bill on him, saying, “I’ll pay for this guy. Here you go. Start a pot.” Throwing another wadded bill, the protestor added, “I’ll decide when to give you money. Here’s another one, here you go.” A moment later, he shouted at the man sitting on the street: “No more hand-outs.”
Someone in the crowd is also heard saying, “You love a communist.”
Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with these people?
