Update: Theodore’s World has a firsthand account of the event. There were about 200 folks present and evidently it is in the conservative part of the state.
This poor man had no idea what was coming. He just stands there and then all he can come up with is the President is a citizen. The folks on the panel aren’t any help. These types of meetings are going to keep happening – especially since this video exists and has already made it on CNN thanks to Lou Dobbs. And because it was on Lou Dobbs it made it on Media Matters. And Chris Matthews played it over and over and so did Rick Sanchez.
Rep Mike Castle from Delaware previous Governor of Delaware – June 30th townhall. He was one of the 8 Reps to vote for barry’s Cap and Trade.
Lady in Red holds up her birth certificate in a baggie and says: I want to go back to January 20th. Why are you people ignoring his birth certificate?
Audience: Yeah! Clapping.
Lady in Red: He is not an American citizen. He is a citizen of Kenya….I don’t want this flag to change. I want my country back!
Audience: Clapping, whistling.
REP CASTLE: I don’t know what type of comment that invites. If you’re referring to the-the-the President there – he is a citizen of the United States.
Audience: Prove it!!
REP CASTLE: But he is a citizen of the United States.
Audience: Prove it!!
He tries to call on someone else. The same woman gets up and begins speaking. Watch the eye roll by the woman in the white shirt before she picks her nose.
LADY IN RED: For all the men and women have been died for this country from 1776 till the present time. I think we should all stand up and give the Pledge of Allegiance to that wonderful flag…lost their lives for our freedom. Everybody stand up and…
REP CASTLE tries to speak over them: Ok, we can do this when we leave.
Some guy yells: Do you know it?!
People stand and recite the Pledge of Allegiance.
REP CASTLE tries to keep talking.
Guy yells: You probably don’t even know it!!!
REP CASTLE gets the hint and joins in: I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Then: Now we can get back to healthcare…
