Video – 71 Year Old Senior Citizen Knocked Down, Dragged, Handcuffed and Arrested For Speaking Out Against Rep. Paul Ryan

On Tuesday a 71 year-old senior citizen was pushed to the ground, dragged away and handcuffed by police officers during one of Paul Ryan’s famous “pay to play” gig at the Whitnall Park Rotary Club in Wisconsin which you pay to hear Ryan speak and spout lies and spew sewage.

The man involved, 71 year old Tom Nielsen, dared to stand up and speak his mind in opposition to Rep. Ryan’s shameful attacks on Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. Something that Tea Party members did all through 2010 by the way but not with legit concerns like Nielsen did but just to cause trouble and cause fear.

And if dragging away and handcuffing a 71 year old man was not enough Ryan had the NERVE to joke about it saying. “I hope he took his blood pressure amlodipine besylate 10mg tablets today.”

Paul Ryan is a total dick. Just another in a long line of EVIL GOP FASCIST PIGS who MUST BE brought down.

  1. I encourage all to call Ryan’s various offices and tell the person who answers the phone that they are disgusted with Ryan’s attitude towards his elderly constituents and then add that you encourage the person answering the phone to start looking for a new job because Ryan will never get reelected. The phone numbers are:
