The American Taliban has stirred up a HORNET'S NEST of Democracy in These United States

TX Tealiban Leader Dewhurst blamed the loss in passing SB5 on: ďan unruly mob using Occupy Wall Street tactics"

( http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/27/us/politics/texas-abortion-bill-appears-to-win-final-approval.html?_r=1& )

I have a message for Mr. Dewhurst:

That was not "Occupy Wall Street" tactics.

THAT. IS. WHAT. DEMOCRACY. LOOKS. LIKE.

And you better get used to it because you all American Taliban have stirred up a HORNET'S NEST of Democracy in this country and you're going to be seeing a lot more of it. THE PEOPLE who make up this nation are not going to stand idly by while you do the bidding of moneyed interests and religious extremists - while you attempt to suppress their vote, shove ALEC model bills that they did not have any voice in crafting down their throats, while you ignore their voices in favor of the Koch Brothers and their rich corporate friends on Wall St., while you protect big business interests and profits at the expense of the middle-class and the poor -- and MOST OF ALL -- while you continue to OPPRESS women in this country and deny them their rights to health care!

Nope. That LEGISLATIVE building all you pampered politicians work in BELONGS TO THE PEOPLE. Their hard-earned tax dollars and labor BUILT that building - all of the legislative buildings in this country. They have EVERY RIGHT to assemble there at any time to TELL YOU in any peaceful way that YOU are not doing your job -- when YOU are not representing them.

And ya know what else, Dewhurst and all you other American Taliban leaders? --- No matter what rich white man or corprat interest bought your way into that office you enjoy -- WE THE PEOPLE PAY YOUR SALARIES.

Let me repeat that: No matter what rich white man bought you or what corporation paid your way into office with unlimited spending on attack ads on your behalf -- YOU. WORK. FOR. US. WE pay your salaries. And YOU are occupying OUR house.

And if you aren't doing your job, you ARE going to hear about it. In NO uncertain terms.

THAT is what Democracy looks like.

In these United States, people have DIED for Democracy.

They have rioted. They have sat on buses. They have marched. And they have DIED for it. And been murdered for it. They had DREAMS about it. And they FOUGHT to the death for that dream.

And they'll do it again.

So Mr. American Taliban leader, you had just better get used to these "Occupy Wall St tactics", as you call them, because that's WHAT. DEMOCRACY. LOOKS. LIKE.

OUR HOUSES. OUR NATION. OUR RIGHTS. OUR VOICE. AND. WE. WILL. BE. HEARD.

When WE THE PEOPLE STAND UP and REFUSE to let you take our rights and our voices away, WE. WIN. and the thieves LOSE.

Because THAT. IS. WHAT. DEMOCRACY. LOOKS. LIKE.

Get used to it, Bucko. You Goddamned, LYING, CHEATING bastards.
