Wow!… Rep. Kathy Hochul wasn’t expecting this.
The far left democrat held a town hall last night expecting to focus on Obama’s failed energy and economic policies, instead she was loudly booed and harassed by Catholics over Barack Obama’s anti-religious HHS mandate.
WGRZ reported, via HotAir:

WGRZ has more on the raucous town hall:

The packed crowd was critical of Hochul for supporting President Obama’s plan to require religiously affiliated employers, such as hospitals and schools, to provide full contraception coverage to female employees.

The plan was later altered. It now calls for those workers to get free contraceptive coverage from health insurers, thus sparing religious based groups, morally opposed to paying for birth control, from having to do so.

Even though Hochul’s town hall meeting was open to any topic, the large crowd focused on the contraception coverage issue.

When Hochul spoke in support of the President, the crowd booed. Many in the audience carried signs, including one that read: “Kathy why have you betrayed our Catholic institutions?” One woman in the crowd told Hochul: “This President has lied to us repeatedly when he proclaims support for conscience protection in his infamous speech at Notre Dame as well as in the executive order he signed following passage of the health care law. He is not worthy of your support in this matter.” Another man shouted “It’s an insult to the Catholics in this country to even listen to that gibberish. It is an absolute insult and Catholics deserve better. We were taking care of this country’s sick long before the government got involved in it.”

  1. These rabid Catholics are SO uncivil. How DARE they confront this hard-working Representative in such a disrespectful way, demanding accountability for outright lies from their liberal betters?! They should have been crapping on public property, burning down businesses and sharing hyperdermic needles, instead. Make them report to the National Institute for Civil Discourse for re-education, post haste.

  2. The Roman Catholics did a lot of health care way before the govt involvement. Also a great education. I went to Roman Catholic schools even tho I was Anglican. It was a marvelous education- The Nuns, Brothers, Priests and Lay teachers taught us to think. I had 4yrs of Latin too. We learned to diagram sentences from the Aeneid.(Thanks, Fr R) That was poetry and we also had to figure out what Virgil had left out to make the meter.

  3. Remove her. Wipe that smug smile off of her marxist face, and break her finger.

  4. This woman is a liar when she says she has alot of respect for Catholic’s. No, she doesn’t. She’s saying that in order to keep votes. She is only concerned about her keeping her job so she can continue to take our rights away. Did she tell these people that she opposes Obama’s agenda to take our religious freedoms away? Did she tell these people that she is on their side and will fight for their religious freedom? Did she tell them that she opposes any intrusion by the government on any individuals freedoms and liberty, by the government trying to come up with laws in any form, be they Presidential Directives or Executive Order like Obama likes to use to go over the Republican Congress, and violation of the Constitution? The answer is, NO she didn’t tell these people that she works for them, not Obama, and not the Democrat Party, but THEM!!

    She doesn’t work for the people who elected her. She works for Obama and the Democrat Party. She is like Nancy Pelosi who thinks America is a Democracy. This is a Constitutional Republic!! That means we elect a person to be our representative. They are to go to Washington to do what the people who elected her to do according to the Constitution. Nothing less, and nothing more unless it’s Constitutional. But, she doesn’t. She’s a liar. She’s a politician, plain and simple. Politician’s are all liar’s, and liberals are the biggest liar’s of all!

  5. This is just a sample of what will happen to

    Obama in November. Obama is not disliked

    He’s hated for the evil bastard he is.

    God still cares for America, miracles will happen.

  6. I expect this response to propaganda-driven Dem town hall meetings from now until the election to be a regular thing, not an exception, no matter what the propaganda being spewed. People are mad as hell and are getting close to not taking it any more. The representatives people have elected have crapped all over the voters enough.

  7. To #5

    I pray you are right!

  8. ++

    this is part of why we have the instigated
    outrage over the Koran burn in A-stan.. :mad:

    as if Catholics et al would be intimidated, as if we have been freed from
    the Constitution
    , get real Islamists, tell you dear leader B Hussein O his
    and your days are numbered, not ours, Amen..

    (note the dates, yet no background info is available)

  9. With Muslims killing people over the Koran burnings, its hard to find fault with a few folks fighting for something as minor as “leave my faith alone please”. But the Left will try…they will try.

    Moemoe commented:

    Very illuminating of the Progressive worldview that they won’t fight back against believers who will kill them by suicide bombs or beheading, only against believers who want to be left alone.

    Proselytizing Christianity by talking is somehow more evil than Muslims butchering unbelievers, converting by the sword.

  12. Obama cares more about our enemies religious views than those in this nation and this should concern all of us. Now that this has happen in February 8 months prior to the elections will the Catholics and other religious organizations hold on to their strong emotions on this mandate and finally vote No to Obama.

    Eliminating large families such as those in the Catholic faith. One reason, the desire to stop the population in the urban cities. Or votes of the woman. This is not so much pro choice as it is evidently clear just how far one president can go and demand on a religion they go against their their beliefs.

    Burning of the Koran was more important to Obama then mandate birth control on Catholics.

    Obama has used his presidency for more Government ownership on car industries, health care insurance and banks.

    Now, he has crossed the line. We will vote in November and it will be a mandate for Obama, to leave. Hope that is change will that Obama must live with.

    bg commented:

    To borrow a couple of phrases the Left shoved down our throats when GW was in office:

    1) He’s not MY President

    2) Dissent is Patriotic.

    The Dems are the truth of the propaganda about Marie Antoinette, they truly believe we can eat bread when there is no other food.

    Militant Conservative commented:

    No dictator or tyrant has ever voluntarily given up power without a fight. This election and the aftermath more than likely will see violence on a scale not seen since the 1960’s.

  15. What will come to a surprise to some of the naysayers is: Americans are united more that the networks and pundits could ever realize.

    Obama has alienated a big block of voters who voted for him in 08. They were expecting great changes and the were in a trance over his many speeches of peace and hope.

    Little did they not he would turn out to be hopeless and a constant thorn in their side.

  16. [The packed crowd was critical of Hochul for supporting President Obama’s plan to require religiously affiliated employers, such as hospitals..] obama requiring anything is a non-starter.

  17. little did the know.
