This just in: Astroturf protesters heckled Mary Franson in the House Ag Committee, trying to overturn the 2010 election results by demanding her resignation over their context-mangled attack on her. (The issue was in danger of fading from the headlines; the left can’t afford that)
Here’s her response – emphasis added:
Intimidation and bullying are hallmarks of the far left. The protesters here today exemplify the abusive nature of their political involvement by demanding my resignation and silence. They don’t engage on the tragedy of dependency and poverty because they have no solutions, only threats and theatrics.
No one is fooled or persuaded by these Alinsky tactics and far from resigning, these astro turf events only make me more committed to helping the poor out of poverty. My constituents support my efforts to change that status quo. The public knows stunts when it sees one and today’s orchestrated, manufactured “protests” are just that.
The poor aren’t animals – but huge swathes of the DFL are a bunch of hyenas.
Mary is under a lot of fire right now – and it’s becoming more and more depraved. She could use a call from some real Minnesotans, supporting her.
