Obama Thinks Community Organizing Isn't Much Fun When Conservatives Do It

“Community organizing is all fun and games until someone starts organizing the community against the community-organized, government-run health care,”Â Glenn Beck said on his TV show Monday. “Then it’s time to start breaking some legs!”
WhileÂ violent, militantÂ SEIU goonsÂ beat up Americans skeptical ofÂ socialist healthcareÂ at healthcare townhall meetings, President Obama refuses to say anything to defuse the potentially explosive situation developing in communities across the nation, Beck said.
“How about throwing us a bone here, Mr. President? A little ‘Hey, they have a right to protest too’ would be nice â€” it could help quell the ‘It’s just the GOP AstroTurf mob’ stuff,” said Beck.
Beck saidÂ Kenneth Gladney, a 38-year-old conservative, got a taste of liberal intolerance for dissenting viewpoints. Gladney was handing out “Don’t Tread on Me” flags when he was attacked by a member of SEIU:
I’m sick and tired of the media â€” and politicians â€” equating union thugs like these, with regular American citizens who have gathered (most likely) for the first time in their lives to be heard. This isn’t a bunch of college kids and hippies being paid to protest. It’s regular people who see how government runs things and are terrified at the prospects of government-run health care.
Democratic politicians don’t seem to understand that people opposed to Big Government healthcareÂ also have a constitutionally guaranteed right to free speech.
Rep. David Scott (D-Georgia) flew into a rage at a public meeting when a constituent dared to ask him a question about ObamaCare. Scott accused the questioner of hijacking the event. “This is not a healthcare event…Not a single one of you had the decency to call my office and set up for a meeting. OK? Then do that. Do that!”
