CT News Junkie, which is non partisan, has coverage of a rally outside of the CBIA - Connecticut Business and Industry Association.
Menacing marchers threaten civic organization that provides health insurance to small businesses. Surely this dastardly act must be the cause of evil-mongering rightwing radicals wielding pitchforks and torches to frighten responsible citizens who are trying to ensure that more people have access to healthcare. Heaven forbid.
The YouTube Video CTNJ posted includes a rebuttal from the CBIA's Eric George. Their story summarizes the video. Here's the lede:
Carrying pitchforks and torches a group of labor unions and health care groups marched down Church Street in Hartford Tuesday night to let the state’s largest business lobby know that they want health care reform. [Emphasis mine -JT]
But I thought all the violent political demonstrations were a product of the fiscal conservative tea party movement. You mean, labor unions and progressives strike a more menacing pose than the tea partiers? Who knew?
In comparison, here are some pictures from the New Haven Tea Party held rather peacefully in April of last year.
