Obama Heckled by Joe Wilson During Joint Session Health Care Speech

The nastiness of Sept hot weather reaches the Capitol as President Barack Obama spoke about his health care plan. South Carolina Republican Rep. Joe Wilson shouted “You lie!” after Obama talked about illegal immigrants.

The context is this: after Obama said “There are also those who claim that our reform efforts would insure illegal immigrants. This, too, is false. The reforms — the reforms I’m proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally. ”, an audience suddenly shouted “You lie!”.

That guy is Obama heckler-Joe Wilson, a member of the Columbia World Affairs Council, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Sinclair Lodge 154, Jamil Temple, Woodmen of the World, Sons of Confederate Veterans(SCV),……

This is an organization that, as the SPLC(Southern Poverty Law Center) has detailed assiduously, has been taken over in the past decade by radical neo-Confederates who favor secession and defend slavery as a benign institution. Leading the takeover is a radical racist named Kirk Lyons, who’s been an important legal figure on the far right for some years.

In more recent years, the takeover has led to an outright internal civil war, and this rift has led to Lyons himself coming under harsh attack from his own right flank. The SCV is a serious mess.

Now, add this to the fact that Joe Wilson, as a state legislator, was one of only seven Republicans to go against their own party and vote to keep the Dixie Rebel flag flying over the South Carolina capitol

A clearer picture of why this congressman might so virulently breach protocol and loudly interrupt an African-American president’s speech to Congress by calling him a liar does start to emerge, doesn’t it?

    Definitely agree with what you stated. Your explanation was certainly the easiest to understand. I tell you, I usually get irked when folks discuss issues which they plainly don’t know about. You managed to strike the nail correct on the head and explained out everything without having complication. Maybe, people can take a signal. Will likely be back again to get a lot more. Many thanks
