An elderly man protesting ObamaCare lost his finger last night when a MoveOn.org thug bit it off!
What is it with Team Obama and their amputation fetish?
California authorities say a clash between opponents and supporters of health care reform ended with one man biting off another man's finger.
Ventura County Sheriff's Capt. Frank O'Hanlon says about 100 people demonstrating in favor of health care reforms rallied Wednesday night on a street corner. One protester walked across the street to confront about 25 counter-demonstrators.
O'Hanlon says the man got into an argument and fist fight, during which he bit off the left pinky of a 65-year-old man who opposed health care reform.
A hospital spokeswoman says the man lost half the finger, but doctors reattached it and he was sent home the same night.
She says he had Medicare.
O'Hanlon says the attacker fled but authorities have a good description.
As an un-American evil monger, I wonder if Obama's rabble-rousing rhetoric has pushed his supporters too far...
Gateway Pundit reminds us of Obama's history of violent language:
- Obama: "They Bring a Knife...We Bring a Gun"
- Obama to His Followers: "Get in Their Faces!"
- Obama fanning the flames of populist angst: "I don't want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I'm angry!"
- Team Obama: “If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard”
I dare say we've reached the point of diminishing returns in the ObamaCare debate. Perhaps it's time to scrap the bill and change the subject.
