“I’m not doing town meetings; I’m not going to give those people a forum. I went through it with the Clinton health care bill, with the John Birch Society, where we had to have police around, and people hysterically crying.  I’m not, and frankly, tell you the truth Ron, my own dignity and the dignity of the office I hold is important to me.”

“Some Americans have not gotten over the fact that Obama is president of the United States. They go to sleep wondering, ‘How did this happen?’ . . . Why do we have to wait for the right to vote? Why can’t we get what God has given us? That is the right to live as human beings and not negotiate with white southerners and not count the votes. Just do the right thing.”

“It is fascist. It is a fascist tactic,” Rep. Jerry Nadler, (D-N.Y.) said of the conservative town hall protesters. “That’s exactly what they did in Weimar, Germany. Let me put it this way. It is a fascist tactic not to disagree with you, or to say you are an idiot or whatever, but to try to shut you up. That’s what I mean. That’s a fascist tactic.”
