The People We’re Dealing With

There was an anti-healthcare rally on Capitol Hill today and some people let the Democrats know they had issues. TPM reports:

[I]n addition to menacing behavior toward multiple members of Congress, one protestor called Rep. Barney Frank a “faggot”, a taunt greeted by laughter from fellow protestors.

We’re now getting reports that other protestors yelled “nigger” at Rep. John Lewis (D-GA).

Think Progress has a photo of one sign being carried at the rally:”If Brown [as in Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA)] can’t stop it, a Browning [as in a pistol] can.”

Nice people.
