Marine Corp Veteran David William Hedrick destroys US Representative Brian Baird

A taste of bold justice. Finally. We need more calm powerful justice like this.

In case you haven’t heard about Brian Baird a Congressman from Washington State, he is the one who said those at townhalls expressing their concerns about ObamaCARE were exhibiting a “lynch mob mentality” and “close to Brownshirt tactics,” a reference to Nazi stormtroopers. David William Hedrick, a member of the silent majority, decided that he was not going to be silent anymore. So, he let U.S. Congressman Brian Baird have it. He was one questioner out of 38, that was called at random from an audience that started at 3,000 earlier in the evening. Not expecting to be called on, he quickly scratched what he wanted to say on a borrowed piece of paper and with a pen that he borrowed from someone else in the audience minutes before he spoke. So much for the planned talking points of the right wing conspiracy.” – source

Video Transcript:

BRIAN BAIRD: Yes, sir.

DAVID WILLIAM HEDRICK: My name is David, and I’m from Camas Washington.

BAIRD: Hi David.

HEDRICK: And uh, first of all I want to let everybody know since this is the thing tonight that I’m a marine corp vet. [applause]

BAIRD: Thank you David.

HEDRICK: And like you, I swore an oath to defend my constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. [applause] Now, I heard you say tonight about educating our children, indoctrinating our children, whatever you want to call it

BAIRD: I didn’t say indoctrinating.

HEDRICK: Stay away from my kids. [applause] I also heard you say that you’re gonna let us keep our health insurance. Well thank you! It’s not you’re right to decide whether or not I keep my current plan or not. That’s my decision. [applause] Now I’ve heard recently in the media that you and some other people on the national political stage call us brownshirts because we oppose…

BAIRD: No I did not. No I did not. What I said was, and I’ve apologized for it.

HEDRICK: Ok, well thanks for apologizing, but let, uh, I won’t speak to you then, I’ll speak to others. But I’ll remind you, a little history lesson, the Nazis were the national socialist party. They were leftist. They took over the finance. They took over the car industry. They took over healthcare in that country. If Nancy Pelosi wants to find a swastika, maybe the first place she should look is the sleeve on her own arm. [applause] Now what I want to know is, you’ve done a lot of things that violate your constitutional oath as you know. What I want to know is as a marine, as a disabled veteran that served this country, I have kept my oath. Do you ever intend to keep yours?

BAIRD: Yes I do.

David Crockett, Charity, and Congress

About the Author: Edward S. Ellis

This story appeared in The Life Of Colonel David Crockett, published by Porter & Coates in 1884. Now in the public domain.

I was one day in the lobby of the House of Representatives when a bill was taken up appropriating money for the benefit of a widow of a distinguished naval officer. Several beautiful speeches had been made in its support, rather, as I thought, because it afforded the speakers a fine opportunity for display than from the necessity of convincing anybody, for it seemed to me that everybody favored it. The Speaker was just about to put the question, when Crockett arose. Everybody expected, of course, that he was going to make one of his characteristic speeches in support of the bill. He commenced: Continue reading
