Protesters drowned out by “yew ess ayy” chants.
With all due respect to Americans, but this chanting of “USA USA USA” to drown out a lone voice with a legitimate protest is disturbing. Do these Republican idiots think that the USA is opposed to climate change acceptance? Are they just caught up in OTT nationalism? I think a more appropriate chant would have been, “IG NOR ANCE! IG NOR ANCE! IG NOR ANCE!” Those people are batshit crazy.
It’s funny how much “U.S.A., U.S.A.” sounds exactly like “Sig Heil, Sig Heil”.
Hmm, raise your voice to ask unwelcome questions and be removed. USA! USA! land of the free… Oh what the heck, USA! USA! USA!
Romney Audience Calls Sensata Workers Communists for Trying to Keep Jobs in USA
Employees of the Sensata plant who had to train their Chinese
replacements because Bain is shipping their jobs overseas went to a
Romney rally in hopes of finally getting him to hear their pleas. Tom
Gaulrapp explained, “(A)s we were being removed, his (Romney’s)
supporters are scream—first they start a “U.S.A.” chant. And we’re like,
“Yes, we agree.” And then they started calling us communists for trying
to keep our jobs from going to China.”
Amy Goodman broadcasted from the tent city of Bainport on September 20 for Democracy Now!.
She interviewed Tom Gaulrapp, who has worked at Sensata Technologies
for 33 years, about their hopes of getting Republican Presidential
candidate Mitt Romney to help save their jobs:
TOM GAULRAPP: Yeah, we look at it that these—Bain Capital board has
made their decision. The Sensata CEO has made his decision. So we
believe that the only person in the world who can stop these jobs from
being moved is Mitt Romney, because of his relationship with the Bain
board, his financial investment in Bain Capital. And we also believe
that if he would come and talk to us and see the impact that this kind
of outsourcing has on not only the people who work there but, as the
mayor has addressed, the community and the surrounding area, that he
would see that this is absolutely the wrong thing to do because of the
devastation it brings. But, you know, so far, we continue to receive no
response from them. They continue to say they’re unaware of the
situation, although at this point we certainly know they are aware of
the situation, so…
AMY GOODMAN: So, you went to Iowa to try to talk to Mitt Romney?
TOM GAULRAPP: Yes. We—
AMY GOODMAN: [inaudible]
TOM GAULRAPP: They were having in event in Bettendorf, Iowa. And
they—if you went online, you could get these free tickets, so we decided
we would go. And I was seven rows from the podium that he stood behind.
And I asked him, “Will you please come to Freeport, Illinois, and help
Sensata employees save their jobs?” At that point, we were removed. And
as we were being removed, his supporters are scream—first they start a
“U.S.A.” chant. And we’re like, “Yes, we agree.” And then they started
calling us communists for trying to keep our jobs from going to China.
And I have never understood that yet.
Ray here. So, this is why I call Romney zombies Nazis. They don’t give a damn about their fellow Americans losing their jobs to China in a scheme concocted by Romney’s corrupt and criminal clique.
Welcome to the age of stupid.
Ah ha! Thanks for reminding me of this excellent film:
A brave man to take a stand.
Like in the “Age of Stupid” movie, hopefully someone archives some of the positive clips as well.
Space for climate change under the carpet finally ran out and blew up in the faces of campaign managers, demanding to be heard and ruining the carefully orchestrated scripts.
Bloomberg’s amazing endorsement of Obama should send a powerful message to the electorate, and to the Tea Party subjugated GOP, that their climate-change-denying fossil-fuel-funded house of cards ideology finally blew down – hopefully just in time to influence the election.
Anthropobscenic™ Climate Change is one fact that refuses to be bought off.
They pushed him out of the room after he exercised his free speech? Gawd that is shameful. Romney is a bully, still.
Teapublicans believe strongly in free speech – as long it’s their own, or they agree with it or they’re being paid to say it.
We need some major demonstrations at Fox/hate radio stations..they are the brainwashers…or any media outlet for that matter
Looks like it’s time, once again, for the Romney campaign to remind us that, despite what their candidate says and does, he really, really, gosh darn really, will be the President of all Americans, include the entitled dependent victims who won’t vote for him and refuse to take responsibility for their lives.
