So a constituent of John Kerry demands an apology from the tax-dodging oaf and what does he do? Doubles down on stupid and call everyone who doesn't buy his junk science theories neanderthals.
U.S. Sen. John Kerry encountered a loud and often angry crowd during a town hall meeting at the Northampton Center for the Arts on Saturday, as area residents grilled him about his support for the war in Afghanistan, federal spending and the federal government’s response to the recession.Thanks for clearing that up. So nice that we have such esteemed people in our senate.
Anti-war protesters interrupted the Democrat on numerous occasions, yelling and calling on him to explain his support for funding the war in Afghanistan.
And in what might have might been the most bizarre exchange of the two-hour gathering, Kerry apologized to one woman who claimed he had called her a Neanderthal for not believing in global warming.
Kerry said he was referring generally to those who do not believe in the science of global warming and not the one woman in particular.
"The biggest fight we have on the environment right now in Washington is not going forward, it is preventing these Neanderthals, troglodytes, whatever you call them, from going backward - preventing them from attacking the EPA, preventing the EPA from doing anything about clean air for the next few years," Kerry said.We? Uh, Lurch, you were busy trashing your own government back in 1970, so how is it we?
"I think we have to build up the same kind of grassroots energy and movement that we had in 1970 when we passed the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act, the Safe Water Drinking Act, the Marine Mammal Protection Act," he continued. "... There is a price to pay for not moving forward to protect the planet."
