Ex-Marine David Hedrick Verbally Attacks Congressman Brian Baird

A new internet video is causing more debate over health care: a YouTube clip of David Hedrick, ex-Marine, speaking to Representative Brian Baird last week at a town hall meeting.

Rep. Brian Baird made his own health care debate debut earlier this month when he accused anti-health care reform Republicans of “brownshirt tactics” and compared them to “a lynch mob.”

Hoping to avoid angry, pointless “debate,” Brian Baird cancelled his health care town hall meetings. After public uproar, he rescheduled them – and met David Hedrick.

In the clip Hedrick says, “The Nazis were the National SOCIALIST Party. They were leftists. They took over the finance, they took over the car industry, they took over health care in that country. If Nancy Pelosi wants to find a swastika, maybe the first place she should look is the sleeve of her own arm.”

Earlier this month, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused the anti-health care protesters of “carrying swastikas” to town hall meetings.
