Rep. Vern Buchanan Holds Off Thousands of Leftists Who Storm His Town Hall: ‘The Bottom Line Is’ Donald Trump ‘Won the Election’

Vern-Buchanan-Town-Hall-ABC7-640x480SARASOTA, Florida — Hard left-wing professional activists stormed a town hall held by Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-FL) here on Saturday morning, but the successful businessman-turned-congressman held his own and breezed through a rowdy capacity crowd’s efforts to disrupt President Donald Trump’s agenda.
Both sides—pro-Trump activists and anti-Trump activists—showed up in force as a capacity crowd of thousands packed into the Van Wezel Performing Arts center with thousands more watching outside.

Interestingly, Trump won this district in the general election by 11 percent, so the outsized show of force from leftists is not representative of the feelings of those in the district, which sprawls along Florida’s southwestern coast.

Despite the clear and concerted efforts to disrupt, Buchanan kept his cool for more than an hour throughout, made his case, and did not buckle under the left’s pressure. When one woman, who identified herself as a lifelong Democrat who has always voted for Buchanan because she likes him personally but despises Trump, remarked that the town hall must have been “as scary for you as it is for me,” he replied: “I’m enjoying it.”

    Most normal voters are likely to be turned off by the incivility of demonstrators who try to shout down anyone who disagrees with them. Those same people will vote in the next election and it may be against the candidates the loudmouth demonstrators support.

    If I go to a town hall meeting conducted by one of my elected officials, I’m going to hear him and to make my opinion known. I’m not going to the event so I can be drowned out by some rent-a-mob that doesn’t even live here.

    The Democrat Party is a party designed to appeal to people with no education. They promise everything and deliver nothing. They claim to be for the poor and working class; yet nothing seems to improve under their leadership. Since they are out of power they run a dirty tricks campaign to keep elected officials outside their party from getting anything accomplished. Folks, at this point chaos is all the Democrat Party has left.

    ANYONE THAT DISTRUPT MEETINGS LIKE THIS SHOULD BE ARRESTED, FINED 10 THOUSAND AND GET A YEAR IN THE PEN. ALL THEY ARE DOING IS TRYING TO MAKE A NAME FOR THEMSELF. IF THEY WANT TO GRANDSTAND, HOLD THEIR OWN MEEING.

    WE HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED. READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? READ THEIR BIBLE, THE QURAN.

    IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY, WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    We need more men like this – with a backbone – who don’t mind a little altercation now and then.
