Virginia Fifth District Race - #2071 - Democrat Perriello's Speech-Stealing Tactics Caught on Video - Schilling Show Blog

Democrat Perriello's Speech-Stealing Tactics Caught on Video - Schilling Show Blog 
My name is Steve Peters, a United States citizen and a disenfranchised constituent of Virginia Democrat Congressman Tom Perriello (VA-05).  On August 7, 2010, in Fork Union, Virginia, I was barred from exercising my right to free speech—a right endowed to me by my Creator and guaranteed to me by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. This travesty was perpetrated by a representative of Congressman Perriello, with the Congressman’s full knowledge and consent.

If Congressman Perriello’s name sounds familiar, you are not imagining things. This is the very same Democrat who arrogantly stated, “If you don’t tie our hands, we will keep stealing,” some months back. Now, I’m doubly incensed, as Perriello has graduated from stealing my money to stealing my rights.  This video footage shows the exchange that took place when a young man (Joe Topham) approached our group as we were gathered in the parking lot, prepping our signs for display in Congressman Perriello’s town hall meeting that morning. Topham did not identify himself beforehand, acting as though he was an official associated with the building’s management. During the initial conversation he firmly stated that NO SIGNS would be allowed inside the building. Read more Schilling Show Blog..........

Link to Big Government article detailing how the original sign ban was used an a strategy for intimidation:.......  Somewhere between August 2nd and August 6th, 2009,  a strategy was devised that put all tools at the administrations disposal in line and firing at the protesters. August 4th seems to be an important day in the roll out of this strategy. The White House famously posted a new aggressive offensive on their blog calling out what they described as “mis-information” about the proposed bill and directed true-believers to report any sources of these “lies” to a special e-mail address: Also on the 4th, an organization called Health Care for America Now (HCAN) released a document that became a blueprint for intimidation and, ultimately, violence under the guise of confronting the tea party protesters at these town hall meetings.  HCAN is an organization funded by various unions, most significantly SEIU, whose main purpose is to promote and push the effort for government-provided, universal health care. (To understand the SEIU’s reasons for pushing for this government health care, read this post.) The National Field Director for HCAN is Margarida Jorge. Margarida Jorge used to work for the SEIU as an organizing director.

Link to original memo - ' Dealing with Right Wing Attacks in the Field' from Health Care for America Now, dated August 4, 2009 from Margarida Jones........  In this memo:  'Another way to limit protesters’ ability to hijack your event is to confiscate signs or leaflets that they may bring into the venue from outside. The best way to do this is to make a blanket rule that no one can bring signs or leaflets and to advertise this fact as you do turn out in the weeks preceding the event. You can distribute your own signs in the event and offer them one as they enter if you choose to allow them to enter.'

This is only one of many tactics used for intimidation as many of us have witnessed at several of these town hall meetings, especially the Charlottesville Town hall last August, where I personally was jeered and heckled, and they tried to intimidate me from speaking, which didn't work., just took me longer to give my 2 minute talk and question to Tom.  Take a look at either article, you may be shocked at what they came up with last year to pass the Health Care Bill.
