Democrat Congressman didn’t want to end up on YouTube. Sorry, Congressman.

by editor on September 5, 2009

We just can’t make up our minds about Baron Hill, a Democrat Congressman from Indiana. Part of us thinks he’s a complete jerk, but a kinder, gentler part of us says, no, he’s just a complete ignoramus.

Hill called on a young woman at a recent town hall meeting. She told him she was a journalism student working on a school project and objected to the fact that she was told she couldn’t videotape the event.

Student: Why can’t I film this? Isn’t this my right?


Hill: This is my town hall meeting, and I set the rules, and I’ve had these rules … (crowd jeers) … Let me repeat that one more time. This is my town hall meeting for you. And you’re not going to tell me how to run my Congressional office. Now, the reason why I don’t allow filming is that usually the films that are done end up on YouTube in a compromising position.

Apparently Hill didn’t notice that someone else in the crowd was breaking his rules and taping his answer.

And now, ladies and gentlemen, we’re proud to present Congressman Baron Hill’s YouTube debut.

I think it is really amazing how the Internet has changed everything. I honestly believe that without the Internet GW would not have beaten Gore. The ‘Net make sit possible to blowup all of the bogus things the MSM attempts…..same for the Dems crap.

And it helps to highlight a jackass like this guy….

“The ‘Net makes it possible to blowup all of the bogus things the MSM attempts”

Yep. Which is why liberal funded non-profits and criminal front groups pay a gaggle of clowns to troll the internet looking for conservative sites they can disrupt with long-winded, incoherent rants cut and pasted from lib talking points.

Their goal: to waste the time of conservatives by forcing them to read, translate, and rebut utter nonsense. The more time conservatives spend dealing with them, the less time they have for discovering, discussing and spreading information to other truly concerned citizens.

So, if you spot one of these slugs commenting on your favorite site (IHTM?), just ignore them. Don’t read them. Don’t respond.

Lol. Ironic how it all ends up on youtube. Gotta love how much the internet helps freedom of the press. Let’s hope ‘S.733’ doesn’t change all that.

He’s afraid the video clip will end up on YouTube in a compromising position? I guess that makes sense in light of the fact that the democratic congressional rep is cheating on his constituents by screwing around with healthcare.
