Conservatives Adopt ‘You Lie’ as Hooligan Rallying Call

September 12, 2009

(ChattahBox)—Congressional leaders spoke at a GOP rally on Thursday before an unruly crowd of loud tea party protesters calling President Obama a ‘Liar.” Despite the condemnation of Congressman Joe Wilson’s disgraceful heckling of the President by many Republicans, House Republican Leader Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) defended Wilson’s shameful behavior before the ugly crowd.

Instead of the idiotic “drill, baby drill” chant heard at Republican McCain/Palin rallies during the presidential campaign, now crowds of angry Republicans are embracing hooliganism and screaming variations of Rep. Joe Wilson’s infamous and shameful shout of “You Lie.”

The rally was held by Dick Armey’s FreedomWorks, which is funding and organizing the tea party protests and the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, an anti-health reform group that has teamed up with the group Tea Party Patriots and advances the falsehood of forced euthanasia of the elderly.

During the rally Rep Boehner said, when speaking of Wilson’s heckling of the President:

“Don’t underestimate the amount of emotion that people are feeling…Americans are frustrated, they’re angry, and, most importantly, they’re scared to death.”

When Republican Whip Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) started to talk about President Obama, the unruly crowd began shouting and chanting “Liar” and “Liar, liar pants on fire.”

    People like Glenn Beck and Joe Wilson simply make me want to kill them. They’re too stupid and too bigoted to have anything positive to offer America.
