Teabagger Tears Up Rosa Parks Poster at Health Care Town Hall

Michael Santo's picture

At Senator Claire McCaskill's health care town hall yesterday, one of the video highlights on mainstream media was a women being half-dragged from the building. What wasn't show was what provoked that incident: a teabagger tearing up the woman's Rosa Parks poster.

The blurb from YouTube says it all:

This is what actually happened at the event. The news only showed the woman being escorted away by the police. What happened was the women walked in with signs, the crowd booed and yelled at the women. The women rolled up their posters and put them down. A photographer/reporter approached the woman on the end and wanted to see what the poster was. As the woman went to show the photographer / reporter what the poster was, a (white) man from the bleachers stood up and snatched the poster from the woman and photographer/reporter. As the woman went to retrieve her poster the police stepped in and escorted the woman and the man from the building.

The poster was not of Obama, it was not pro health care, the poster that was taken from the woman and wrinkled up into a ball was of Rosa Parks.

National news coverage only showed the woman being escorted from the forum and left out the fact that it was the man who started the incident. Not to mention it was a poster of Rosa Parks.

What gets many is that quite a few of these people are on Medicare, and love it. As I wrote earlier, one person even said he didn't want government screw up his Medicare. Eh? Watch the mayhem.
