Heckler Joe Wilson’s Fundraising Ploy: ‘I’m Under Attack by the Liberal Left’

September 11, 2009

(ChattahBox)—Republican Congressman and vulgar heckler from South Carolina, Joe Wilson, embarrassed himself, shamed his Party and outraged a nation on Wednesday night, when he heckled the President of the United States during his speech before a joint session of Congress. “You lie,” shouted out the unhinged Wilson to a statement made by Obama about illegal immigrants not being eligible for federally funded health care.

The xenophobic Wilson who has spent years affiliated with the neo-Confederate group Sons of Confederate Veterans, is now casting himself as a “victim” under attack by liberal groups and using his victimhood as a fundraising appeal.

After his vile display of disrespect for the office of the President, Wilson released a written apology to President Obama for his actions, without taking back his accusation that the President lied. In fact, Wilson lied. The House Bill specifically prohibits illegal immigrants from benefiting from federally sponsored health care.

Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, along with other House leaders are calling for Wilson’s censure, unless he stands on the House floor to apologize for his unprecedented and shameful behavior.

Now, it appears Wilson is not so sorry after all. The notorious presidential heckler has posted a fundraising appeal on his campaign website and on Youtube. The appeal on his website is headed, “Stand with me against liberal attacks” and Wilson says he is sorry for shouting at the President, but he won’t back down.

Read some excerpts of Wilson’s appeal for campaign contributions, based on his victimhood:

“Today I need your help more than ever before. I’ve been under attack by the liberal left for months because of my opposition to their policies, especially government-run healthcare. They’ve run commercials in my home district and flooded my office with phone calls and protestors. They’ve done everything they can to quiet my very vocal opposition to more government interference in our lives. Now, it’s gotten even worse.

But I will not stop fighting against their policies that will only lead to more government interference, more spending and higher deficits.

Will you stand with me today by making a donation to my campaign? If you do, I’ll be able to fight back against the attacks by the liberal left.

Unfortunately I let that emotion get the best of me and I reacted by speaking out during the President’s speech. I should not have disrespected the President by responding in that manner.

But I am not sorry for fighting back against the dangerous policies of liberal Democrats. America’s working families deserve to have their views represented in Washington, and I will do so with civility. But I will not back down.”

Wilson’s Democratic challenger Rob Miller has raised over $500,000 in response to Wilson’s calling the President of the United States a liar on national television.

In Wilson’sYoutube appeal he declares, “I will not be muzzled” and continues with his victimhood meme:

“On these issues, I will not be muzzled. I will speak up, and speak loudly, against this risky plan,” Wilson proclaims. “The supporters of the government takeover of health care, and the liberals who want to give health care to illegals, are using my opposition as an excuse to distract from the critical questions being raised about this poorly-conceived plan. they want to silence anyone who speaks out against it. They made it clear they want to defeat me, and pass the plan.”

“Health care is a matter of life and death for so many,” he later adds. “I choose life, with health-insurance reform”

    JOE I LIKE YOU! bravo for speaking the truth, it seems that conservative
    momentum is finally building up, the Obama liberal chateau which lacked
    foundation is finally starting to crumble, middle class Americans and
    non-illegals (ie normal citizens) can’t be silenced any longer. Heated
    healthcare debates are just a foretaste of how loud we will get if anyone
    dares proposing ‘amnesty’ to illegals in 2010…

    @bravoJOE: You have the mind of a defective marmot. Your inability to read and understand the text of the proposed law (aka “House Bill”) certainly explains your support of a racist bigot like Joe Wilson. Your threat to get “loud” has already been carried out by others of your type, shouting down elected officials who have attempted to explain health care reform proposals.

    The only people who oppose health care reform in the USA are bigots, health insurance company employees (and especially upper management), and idiots. there’s a fair amount of overlap between the first and third groups.

    Here’s something for you to consider (not that I think you will, but there may be some readers capable of actual rational cogitation): Joe Wilson violated the rules of the House of Representatives, as well as basic rules of courtesy, in such a blatant way that even top GOP officials were shocked and dismayed by his behavior. He demonstrated contempt for the President of the United States, an attitude which is highly prevalent among Communists and terrorists.

    There are also rumors that he is involved in an assassination plot with Glenn Beck, planning to murder President Obama. Of course, there are also rumors that both Wilson and Beck have a history of child molestation, but that is a far lesser crime.

    To Joe Wilson: Have You No Decency, Sir? At Long Last, Have You No Sense of Decency?

    Why did the democrats not want a provision in the bill requiring PROOF of citizenship? Hmmmmm? Obama started calling people liars from the pulpit first in that room. That is very unpresidential and HE needs to be censured.

    It seems to me that the political positions in this country have flown in the face of 20th century facts. Historically, one would expect that the “liberals” would be for free speech, 1st amendment rights, an opinionated and active electorate while the “right wing” would be for repression and constraint of speech. Today the so-called liberals are the fascists, threatening anyone who speaks out against their agenda, while the right wing is for free speech, an active and participatory electorate and true representaive government. Let’s change the definitions and the labels, so we can truly understand what is going on here. And so our children will have a clear picture of who the political antecedents of this current White House regime really are.

    Free speech does not mean yelling out names at the president in front of congress and the world. Seriosly, who would approve of that? A child is not allowed to yell that out to a neighbor, teacher, parent, etc, why would anyone think it is OK for Wilson to do it at the PRESIDENT OF THE US?

  12. Grumpy Old Man on September 12th, 2009 9:25 pm

    @tk – You are demanding that we adopt a national id system? You think “you must carry your papers with you at all times” is a libertarian concept?

    The cost of a pointless ‘proof of citizenship’ would deny health care to far too many citizens. It was tried just 3 years ago.

    You guys don’t believe that Obama is a natural born citizen! How is anyone going to be able to offer absolute PROOF that they are a citizen?
