Cowardly Cantor's Secret Town Hall

This is the face of a coward who is afraid to face his own constituents. Eric Cantor is holding a town hall, but the only group he notified of his secret meeting was the Richmond Tea Party. Thanks to a reader of Blue Virginia we now have the details of Cantor's secret "Advisory Council Meeting":
AUGUST 31, 2011

Congressman Eric Cantor of Virginia’s 7th District invites his constituents to attend the next Cantor Advisory Council Meeting. (This is what he calls a Town Hall)
August 31, 2011
Holiday Inn Koger Conference Center,

James River Ballroom
1021 Koger Center Blvd, Richmond, VA 23235
(5:30pm drinks and hors d’oeuvres; 6pm General Meeting with Q&A).

Please RSVP by Friday, August 26th CINDY@CANTORFORCONGRESS.COM .
If you are interested in attending this meeting, be certain you RSVP. You may even have to pretend to be a tea bagger to get in. I'm sure there will be a pretty good sized protest outside the hall though, so either way you're covered.

Be careful though, because Cantor is known to incite police violence against people who dare to stand up against him. If you do choose to protest outside Cantor's meeting, be sure to have video cameras running because you are likely to see something like this.

He's also known to lie like a Bassett hound about the supposed threat.

The gentleman in the video was treated wrong in my opinion, based on what the video shows. Regardless of what happened off video, his age and demeanor, in no way indicated to me that he resisted arrest. But I also think it is wrong to use a sexually derogatory term (my apologies to those engaged in tea bagging) such as "tea baggers", while referencing supporters of the Tea Party. It is mentally juvenile to refer to others with such epitaphs. It resembles, in abstract, the language used very often (many years ago) to describe peoples of different race, creeds and colors. Such antagonism also resembles the speech bullies use in grade school. We can do better than that, and I think we may undermine the patriotic sacrifice this man has made by suffering so that we can see how the police will behave. It might be one of us next, and we should not resort to name calling. This man's beating should hold more reverence from us and we should be more noble in presenting it to the public.

Excellent points about the language, how it relates to past injustices, demeans our cause, and resembles bullying....We can demonstrate dignity and intellect....a more powerful response....this Bud's for you ;)
