Protesters DISRESPECT Reps. Lewis, Frank, and Cleaver

Yesterday’s protests on Capitol Hill in Washington got a bit ugly for some members of Congress. I told you, some of these people are CRAZY AS HELL!!
You know I am honest and to the point. The anger was directed at Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), and Rep. Emanuel Cleaver II (D-MO). Lewis, who is black, was called a nigger. Frank, who is gay, was called a faggot. Someone spit on Cleaver, who is black.
I did not edit the epithets because I wanted them to hit you like they hit me. Isn’t this 2010?? Can we have some level of peaceful disagreement about healthcare without calling our leaders names? That is a mess all around and it further underscores the level of insanity of people who claim we need to “Kill the bill.” I hear the Capitol police arrested the guy that spit on Cleaver, but he is not pressing charges. If he is like me, the police would have NEEDED to get to that protester first before I did.
Names are one thing. Saliva is another. That’s a big line in the sand for me.
