Congressman Beyer, Limo Liberals Hold Progressive Hugfest, Trump Hatefest

Hey Yupette,

I voted for Bernie in last year's Democratic Primary so I received a post card from Congresman Beyer inviting me to his "Road Ahead" meetup at Wakefield H.S. on Monday.

I have to give Congressman Beyer credit, he was cheerful and upbeat, not like Jim Moran at all. Answered any and all questions for more then 90 minutes. Brought knowledgeable people to the meetup who were on-stage to follow up on questions.

Unfortunately, this meetup was not for constituents but was a rally for limo liberals, aka wealthy progressives. First indication of that was Republicans collecting candidate petition signatures well outside the school building. Second indication was the tables set up outside the school's auditorium by the usual progressive groups.

Inside the auditorium about every limo liberal in the Eighth District was in attendance. And some progressives from DC and elsewhere. Minority group members were conspicuous by their absence.

Whatever Congressman Beyer's intentions, the meetup quickly deteriorated into anti-Trump rants and "what are we going to do now"? questions. And pitches for every progressive cause, program, dogma, etc.

Oh, a few minority group members in attendance with questions about school integration and housing affordability were turned over to County Board and School Board members for the usual say little, do nothing pontification.

Based on this meeting would I blame the Trump Administration for completely ignoring Congressman Beyer and the legislation he sponsors? No.

Wakefield parking lot looked like the Don Beyer Volvo used car lot.

What I hate about these Limo Liberal meetups is what they want to talk about is guns, and what they don't want to talk about is healthcare.

Doesn't Donald Trump dislike inside the beltway enough already? Why give him more reasons?

Statements made during this meeting didn't border on hate speech, they WERE hate speech.

In the context of the Inauguration today the comments made at the meet up were mean and vindictive.

Arlington Dems only extend corporate welfare give-away deals to their PlutoCrat pals.

Anyone blaming Bill and Hill for their 4 decades of bad behavior? Not the women who attended the March on Trump today.

Not to mention Al Gore would have been elected President if it weren't for Bill'a antics.

Hillary's bad behavior was legendary before she and Bill left the White House.
