Ohio Tea Partiers Mock Parkinson’s Patient

Posted by: Bluedog89

ProgressOhio ~ In a scene reminiscent of non-violent civil rights confrontations from the 1960s, Ohio Tea Partiers quickly turned ugly when facing off with health care advocates in front of Ohio Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy’s office Tuesday.

In shocking video taken by a Columbus Dispatch reporter Doral Chenowith yesterday, Tea Party protestors mock a seated counter-protestor with a sign indicating he has Parkinson’s disease. They then proceed to hurl wadded up bills at him shouting, “I’ll decide when to give you money!”

“This has gone way too far,” said Brian Rothenberg, Executive Director of ProgressOhio.

“All of these candidates that pander to the Tea Party, whether it is Steve Stivers, John Kasich or national leaders like John Boehner, need to disavow the behavior these bullies exhibited in the video.”

    This past Sunday, I went to the funeral of someone who had been stricken with Parkinson’s disease. It is a mean & cruel disease. It’s too heart- breaking to describe what this woman & her family went through as she suffered from this horrible disease. What these infidels are doing to this man is beyond the pale. They have no conscience, no morals at all. They are demons unleashed from hell.

    • My oldest brother has Parkinsons and what these heartless fools don’t know, don’t want to know, is that the disease effects motor skills INCLUDING speech. It’s quite possible this man couldn’t defend himself, even verbally.

      These whimps were bullying a defenseless person.

        I know, Geo! I saw what the disease did to this woman. Only a monster would poke fun at someone in that condition. They have no shame!

  3. It is appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I want to suggest you few interesting things or tips. Perhaps you can write next articles referring to this article. I desire to read more things about it!
