Union Brownshirts Assault Patriots at Town Hall Meetings

The inevitable violence that accompanies all totalitarian power grabs has begun, with minions of the Community Activist in Chief dispatched to squelch the revolt of normal Americans at town hall meetings.

When Rep. Russ Carnahan (D-MO) faced his constituents in south St. Louis County yesterday, Obamunist goons were on hand to back him up. About 1,000 protesters against healthcare nazification were locked out of the meeting, even as union thugs from the SEIU were allowed inside.

Outside the meeting, six arrests followed assaults on patriots. STLtoday reports:

Kenneth Gladney, 38, a conservative activist from St. Louis, said he was attacked by some of those arrested as he handed out yellow flags with "Don't tread on me" printed on them. He spoke to the Post-Dispatch from the emergency room at St. John's Mercy Medical Center, where he said he was awaiting treatment for injuries to his knee, back, elbow, shoulder and face. Gladney, who is black, said one of his attackers, also a black man, used a racial slur against him before the attack.
"It just seems there's no freedom of speech without being attacked," he said.

Via Gateway Pundit, here's video of the attack and its aftermath:

Union thugs from the SEIU were also deployed at a town hall meeting in Tampa:

Isn't it nice how the Moonbat Messiah united us as promised?

We've seen this movie before, in Germany in the 1930s. Obamunism is about to get very ugly.
