(Video) Rep. Boehner’s ‘Hell No You Can’t’ Shame in Song
March 24, 2010
(ChattahBox)—In a strange pairing, Congressman John Boehner appears in a remix video with will.i.am and Scarlett Johansson. God help us if the Republicans reclaim the majority and crown House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) as Speaker. In a marathon Sunday session, marked by Republican lawmakers cheering tea party hecklers as they were escorted out of the chamber by authorities and additional Republican lawmakers egging on unruly teapartiers outside, Boehner delivered a profane, incendiary and inflammatory speech against healthcare reform. “Hell no you can’t!” he shouted in the body of the House of Representatives. And in a shameful GOP bookend to cap off the disreputable behavior of the Republicans, Rep. Randy Neugebauer, a right-wing Republican lawmaker from Texas shouted out, “baby killer” as pro-life Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) rose to speak.
Making its way around the Internet today is a remix of the inspirational “Yes you can” video originally made by will.i. am to honor President Obama’s message of hope and change, with Boehner’s hateful political rhetoric. The clever video is courtesy of DJ Librul. What a stark and disturbing contrast. Hate and ugliness contrasted with hope and inspiration.
