Republican Wingnuts Hang Rep. Frank Kratovil (D-MD) in Effigy to Protest Health Care Reform

President Obama and his administration are working to implement comprehensive health care reform. The process is starting to get ugly.

A group called “Patients First,” a project of the lobbyist-funded Americans for Prosperity, held a symposium in Salisbury, MD, and warned about the dangers of “socialized” medicine.

Their protest outside Democratic Rep. Frank Kratovil’s office included hanging Kratovil in effigy. It amazes me that this wingnut is smiling about this imagery of a lynching. Doesn't he realize the horrific history of lynching in America?
