Action Alert –
Potential protests against Joe Walsh
tonight at Harper College
That’s the headline of an email I just received.
It warns supporters of Congressman Joe Walsh that demonstrators may show up at his Town Hall Meeting at Harper College tonight.
Here’s the rest of the email:
There are rumors today that protesters are planning to disrupt the Joe Walsh town hall event tonight at Harper College.
Thursday, February 24th from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at:
Harper College – Wojcik Conference Center
1200 W Algonquin Road
Palatine, IL 60067
Please be there tonight if you can. Silent no more! Don’t let Chicago thug tactics intimidate the voters of this district.
National news media have likely been invited to this event by the protesters – both liberal TV media and print media – to help attack him.
As you may have heard, there have been attack ads against Joe this week, funded by Planned Parenthood, because he voted against their federal funding as well as for many other spending cuts. The progressive radicals are going on the attack to try to save their agenda.
Union organizers and students, of course, have also been rallying in Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana, and elsewhere to try to attract media attention.
There are protest rallies being planned across the country this weekend and other actions to try to create the astroturf illusion of public support for their agenda.
Rather than let an astroturf mob create a false image of voter opposition to Joe Walsh, please attend this meeting if you can and make sure we at least try to get them to pay attention to the truth for a change.
Joe won the election, and has strong support.
The rent-a-mob crowd lost, no matter how angry and noisy they may be about it. We need to make it clear that our member of Congress will not be intimidated by agitators.
Unlike Melissa Bean, who went into hiding for years to escape any critical public discussion of her actions as our representative in Congress, Joe has been out there doing many well-attended town halls and answering every question and every critic for more than a year now.
Don’t let the media turn this into a story about some illusory public backlash against what they have always tried to misrepresent as an “extreme” Tea Party candidate, rather than a principled conservative who is unafraid to say what he really thinks, listen respectfully to those who have different views, and do what he told us he will do. He was elected to represent us – not to listen to the noisiest mob or be intimidated through media attention.
Let the unions and liberal activists show their true colors, as in Madison last week, through their disruptive actions and abusive attacks. We won, and they are just throwing a temper tantrum because they finally are not getting their way by intimidating and fleecing the taxpayers for their own benefit.
Joe Walsh has been standing up for us in Washington. We need to stand up firmly and peacefully to reject these Chicago thug tactics once again.
