In this classic video from a town hall event, Rep: Barney Frank forcefully takes a deranged Obamacare hater to task for feeling so strongly against the effort to bring healthcare to millions of Americans that she felt the need to compare Obama to Hitler and his unspeakable crimes.
One of his conservative constituents asks, “Why are you supporting this Nazi policy (Obamacare)?”
The crowd did not take kindly to her offensive question, but Barney Frank felt compelled to answer with a question of his own.
Frank responds: “On what planet do you spend most of your time?”
“You stand there with a picture of the president defaced to look like Hitler, comparing the effort to bring increase healthcare to the Nazis, and it is a tribute to the First Amendment that such vile, contemptible nonsense is so freely propagated.” When she tried to ask a second question over the raucous applause, he dismissed her by saying: “Trying to have a conversation with you would be like arguing with a dining room table.”
