Dissing constituents called strategic plan

'That protester right there is holding a Bible' Posted: August 05, 2009 10:11 pm Eastern © 2009 WorldNetDaily Demeaning protesters who confront their members of Congress at town hall meetings over the health care plan and other concerns appears to be part of a strategic plan by Democrats and their allies to "dehumanize" them, according to a psychiatrist. Keith Ablow, a New York Times best-selling author and Fox News Channel contributor, told the Glenn Beck television show that calling opponents of the legislation promoted by President Obama and the Democratic majority "a mob" classifies them as subhuman. "This sounds familiar," he said, describing it as sounding a little like "that slope to totalitarianism." WND reported over the weekend on video clips that showed constituents confronting their members of Congress over the massive spending in Washington and the intimidating new demands of the health care proposal.

Christopher Carney, D-Pa., refusing to hold discussions with constituents in the presence of the media or in groups larger than two or three.
"The government is not representing us anymore," said Connie McCaffery, who was at the meeting and appears in a video of the event posted on "We came today to speak with Rep. Carney's representative," said Veronica Adams. "He doesn't want to meet with us as a group. He didn't want to meet with us with the press." Ablow said the Democratic description of such constituents as "a mob" is intended to intimidate, too. "Nobody does want to be called crazy," he said.
