Another GOP House Rep Booed Off Stage [VIDEO]

Sacramento’s CBS affiliate reports:

The boos and shouts of displeasure started during the introduction of Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) at his town hall meeting in Oroville. For nearly two hours, the crowd at the State Theater shouted down responses by the congressman. “I’m appalled,” said Linda Agee, a LaMalfa supporter. “It’s very enlightening and disturbing to experience this first hand,” said Denise Culley, who was attending her first town hall event.

“Do you yell at church?” LaMalfa asked the crowd at one point. That comment was met with intense booing and shouts of “Do you lie in church?” After fielding several questions and hearing comments on a range of issues, LaMalfa moved on to healthcare where he struggled through a PowerPoint presentation. His narration was hard to follow as shouts continued from the crowd. At one point the congressman walked off stage, returning a few moments later to finish his presentation amidst the noise.

  • Kelly Lape

    I love the outrage from the assholes who did this in 2009. Fuck the GOP

    • Gustav2

      Outrage for me, but not for thee!

    • Jamie_Johnson

      However, the reaction from the GOP is exactly what you’d expect: rather than braving these town halls the way Dems did then, they’re using the police to intimidate attendees, requiring ID to enter, and enforcing behavior rules — if they’re holding town halls at all. And then there are the wusses who have decided to literally phone it in and have online town halls on facebook or something… but at least they’re aware they’ve poked the electorate in the eye and are worried about it.

      • Kelly Lape

        This is the second GOP POTUS to only be POTUS for the Republicans. Donald Trump doesn’t hold town halls, he holds campaign rallies to keep the opposition out. Narcissistic Assholes one and all.

    • Jeffg166

      It’s OK if you’re a Republican.

      Everyone needs to be engaged. In fighting this administration. However they can.

  • If the protestors are paid by Soros/Hillary/Satan/whatever, why don’t the GOP reps talk about it more? Are they too stupid to know, or too cowardly to speak up?

    • Ernest Endevor

      Oh do grow up.

      • Todd20036

        It’s sarcasm

        • Ernest Endevor

          My bad. I understood as I clicked ‘post’. Don’t know about you but after an hour spent reading the news I get click-happy. Or click-unhappy, rather.

          • another_steve

            Very easy to misinterpret “tone” in blog comments. Happens to all of us. Not a problem.

            For this reason, I try to make ample use of smilies and the “/snark” annotation in my comments.

    • Lakeview Bob

      I can’t tell if you are being stupid or sarcastic.

      • It’s about the GOP stupid voters.

        If they can think logically, the “paid protesters” scenario doesn’t make their reps look good one way or another.

        Edit: It’s amazing how you can misread it after I already used “Satan” and “whatever”

        • Lakeview Bob

          Okay. Thanks.

      • Todd20036

        It’s sarcasm.

    • M Jackson

      Rampant payments to thousands of protesters across the country, according to the President of The United States.
      But between the White House, Fox News, Alex Jones and Mark Levin, Rush, the GOP, the FBI, the Illuminati,
      there’s not ONE receipt, pay stub, online deposit info, money order receipt, credit card entry, Best Buy gift card, scratch-off card, not even a thank you note from the Soros family.
      The idiocy of this nation runs deeeep.

  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    La MalFormed: Do you yell at church??
    Town Hall Audience: Do you smell at church?? Cause you’re sure stinking up this town hall.

    • The_Wretched

      town halls are government, not church. That he’s the least confused on the matter means he’s unfit.

      • Chucktech

        Actually, I think it means he goes to church. You’re right, he’s unfit.

        • coram nobis

          Some people do yell at church. Praise Jeepers, hallelujah!

          • Chucktech

            Speaking in Tongues can be quite vociferous and demonstrative.

    • Chucktech

      “We’re fucking not IN church right now, you asshole!”

  • Lakeview Bob

    These fuckers think they are invulnerable. Wait til next year asshole.

    • Mark

      What until next year only if the the democrats will get off their lazy asses and vote!!

  • MBear


    Like they care.
    They’re just going through motions.
    They’ll just stop all town halls…and a short time later just not even bother allowing people to vote them into office.

  • Jeffrey

    OT lets all hope that Jon Osoff wins in Georgia today and sends a message to Trump that we aren’t sitting back and normalizing his bullshit. We need to solidly motivated.

    • Chucktech

      God, I hope so. But I can’t help but feel Georgia will let us down. Again.

      • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

        Rejecting the proposed ‘bathroom law’ showed a glimmer of intelligence. Georgia would have a LOT to lose if their developing rep as “Deep South Hollywood” folded tents and moved out.

    • Goggles

      Georgia had better pay off. The DCCC threw away Kansas and Montana thus far to put all their eggs in the Georgia basket.

    • I live in Georgia’s 6th District and voted today.

      I’m hoping for an upset too, but, well, this is a pretty ‘red’ district. Ya know?

  • Goodboy

    To the little Republican wanne be shithead consider that to be part of your education. It might be like night and day but that’s the difference between apathy and actually giving a shit. This is how actual democracy looks.

    • Boreal

      He has no clue. Someone pays for his food, healthcare and shelter while he plays video games and sleeps.

      • Goodboy

        Yep. He’s like your typical Republican. They don’t give a shit till it effects them personally.

  • Gustav2

    Yes, teenagers are subject to school decorum, rules and punishment. Adult voters, nope.

    • Oh, Parker

      They’re also not old or experienced enough yet to know exactly how far the GOP has sunk, or what’s at stake.

    • Mike Solo

      Good behaviour doesn’t get change anymore, they need to know that the normal way of doing things doesn’t work anymore.

  • Todd20036

    And yet you idiots voted for the GOP even after 8 years of them doing noting but trying to repeal Obamacare with NOTHING to replace it.

    I do feel for the democratic citizens who were forced to go along for the ride, though

  • Boreal

    Suck it up, buttercup. It’s not going to get any better. In fact it is going to get much worse for republicans.

    • edrex

      it had better.

    • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

      I can’t wait until the mindless Gomers who elected this mess start getting screwed over by the GOP. No jerbs, no health care, the creek’s done been polluted and mah dog died. How bad will it get before they realise they’ve been chumped by Trump?

      • Boreal

        They will still love Hair Furor, it’ll still be Obama’s fault.

      • Jon Doh

        The pickup truck will have to up and die.

  • now, i’m Proud to be from the midwest. i have many reasons, but that’s a different conversation. anyway: politically, we should all, everywhere looking to CA for the right path. i think they have Fixed it. really, this is better than spiderson’s “3 CAs.”

    fix redistricting. that is the Key. for years i’ve argued it’s the money, but really… this is the easier way that obviously works. no one talks about it and it would take me more concentration than i have to bleed the right links. but i can see how it is working. very well. not perfectly, but i’m jealous. the only reason i don’t live there is bc there are too many people there, and it’s too expensive.

    fuck it, the russians are trying to take over? i hope everyone can feel that. it’s insidious. so many of us are targets in the new order of fascists. if you have money, use it. if you have time, work it. this low level war shit is starting to freak me out and i have to not say anymore now.

    • David L. Caster

      Most of the population of CA lives within about 30 miles of the coast. If you can find the right inland location, you can probably live comfortably on what you have now.

    • thesunnysideofthestreet

      Another arrogant Republican ass (ironic, that) who doesn’t have a clue who the people he represents actually are. 50% of Americans don’t even go to church – regularly or at all.

    • Nic Peterson

      Sometimes in the throes of service at St Mattress, I have been known to yell out. Just sayin.

  • Treant

    While fun for all involved (except the Republican Congresscritter, but I don’t give a crap about them), I really want to see this translate into Democratic votes and Democratic Congresscritters.

    Hopefully we’ll see that today when people vote their Ossoff.

    • Boreal

      Fingers crossed. If a Dem can win a seat like this in GA, there is hope.

  • another_steve

    The Georgia race today.

    All eyes on the Georgia race.

  • The_Wretched

    Talking down and chastizing an angry mob doesn’t work. That he doesn’t know that is means he’s unfit. The news casters characterizing him as “trying to calm the hall” might say the same of someone using lighterfluid to put out a grease fire.

    • I would use the tried and true method that Shakespeare did to quiet unwashed Londoners at the beginning of his plays, use ghosts in the first act. If that doesn’t work, use double entendres in the Second Act.

        “A tale told by an idiot, signifying nothing. And now, ladies and gentlemen, our House Representative –“

  • BobSF_94117

    This is really counterproductive. Let him talk. He’ll dig his own hole.

    • RepublicansRNotConservative

      Republicans need to feel the heat. They’ve had it too easy of late. I agree “let him talk” but make his life miserable on stage. Our politicians are surrounded by “like thinkers” so it takes a ton of pushback to get through the sycophant wall.

      • BobSF_94117

        Being yelled at by people you they don’t give a shit about — liberal protestors — means nothing to GOP pols. He’d be more miserable if he watched his supporters fall away.

        • RepublicansRNotConservative

          I agree with your point, but it’d be hard for the citizens that don’t like his policies to cause his supporters to leave. So they are doing what they can. And they are using the tactics that worked for the “Tea Party” crowd which is also psychologically powerful when used against Republicans.

          • BobSF_94117

            They are confirming all the worst stereotypes about “the left” and cementing his followers support for him.

          • RepublicansRNotConservative

            True. that could be one outcome. Personally I hope they also leave the meetings realizing their policies aren’t universally appreciated, and the tide could change.

          • kareemachan

            And he’s confirming the worst stereotypes of repugs, isn’t he?

          • Oh, Parker

            If they have any sense at all they’re worried as shit right about now. This is the exact climate that led up to the disastrous tea thing mid-terms during Obama, only in favor of the Democrats this time.

          • RepublicansRNotConservative

            I’m not optimistic. Nate Silver’s 538 blog has discussed this in great detail. Our nation is segregating itself into Red and Blue districts. There are more Red districts even though if you add up the population there are about as many Dems as Reps. The end result is Reps have a monstrous advantage right now, and its getting worse.

          • Oh, Parker

            Time will tell.

          • RepublicansRNotConservative

            For the record, I hope YOU are right.

          • Oh, Parker

            At the risk of sounding as politically naive and ridiculous as Peggy Noonan, let’s just say I have a gut feeling. Beyond that, there are a lot of Republican voters who are now starting to recognize that they have been had. It’s entirely possible that, when the final tally is in, Trump will have been a net advantage to the Democrats long-term, although it hurts like hell right now. We’re seeing levels of engagement at the local level we haven’t seen in decades on our side.

            Another thing to consider is that they wouldn’t need to be redistricting so heavily if a lot of the GOP voter base weren’t already dying off. It’s a complete dick move, granted. But time is not on their side. They know it, and it’s something they will have very little control over long-term.

        • RepublicansRNotConservative

          I knew what you meant, Bob. We have the same strategic goal, just discussing tactics.

    • kareemachan

      No, it’s not counterproductive. People need to be called out on their shit. You’re just aiding and abetting….

  • LovesIrony

  • coram nobis

    What’s Congress got to do with church services? Other than speaking in tongues and bearing false witness?

    • edrex

      exactly. they were NOT in church.

        Don’t forget the constitutional right to petition for redress of grievances.

        Difficulty: the orange asshole’s supporters don’t know what “redress” means.

        • grada3784

          Redress – The GOP probably thinks it has to do with the Trans community.

          I wish I could say it was sarcasm, but it’s all too likely to be true.

    • lattebud

      Sitting in judgement. Supiority complex. Gossipy. Scratch the surface and fin crappy people.

  • RepublicansRNotConservative

    I’ve been reading the Sci Fi books known collectively as the Expanse. There is also a series of the same name that i think was a cooperative effort between Sci Fi channel and Amazon…. Its quite interesting to observe how the author depicts the rise and fall of power centers. Reflecting those themes, I think we should be giving much more press to the fact that China and Russian spies are following our ships near Korea. If they are covertly backing Kim, this could spin out of control quickly. Kim may be the only human on earth more narcissistic than Trump. At least they’re equally narcissistic. So, back to this article, I get a ton of satisfaction seeing the Republicans in front of a hostile electorate, and I hope it continues, but I’m not sure we are paying enough attention to Trump’s foreign “policy”. I don’t think Trump has any reservation about going to War in Korea because he’s nuts.

  • edrex

    this is useful ONLY if folks vote them out of office.

  • Michael White

    At least he had the courage to show up. My rep Jackie Walorski, In 2, doesn’t even show up for townhall meetings. Just photo ops in highly controlled situations. Never appears on TV, just issues statements.

  • That_Looks_Delicious

    LaMalfa is a vile, totally racist and homophobic Piece Of Shit and probably the absolute worst of all the remaining California Republicans, much worse even than Nunes or Issa or McCarthy. I would love to see him get kicked out next election.

  • unclemike

    This is encouraging, but you’ve got to vote them out, too!

  • stanhope

    Who gives a f-ck about that 16 year old. The rep shouldn’t ignore his constituents and this wouldn’t happen. Vote him out!

  • rednekokie

    Nice to hear he’s actually getting what he deserves.

  • marshlc

    I’m a little amazed at how little force of personality and crowd management skills these politicians have. You’d think the ability to command a room would be a basic item in the toolbox, if you want to succeed in politics.

    It’s almost like they skated in on the coattails of their party, and don’t actually bring anything to the table.

    • RoFaWh

      They’re not real politicians.

  • Republicans reveled in Democrats being booed off stage by Teabaggers in 2009-2010 but now that it’s happening to Republicans they are disturbed. Fucking snowflakes.

  • JWC

    If American has any salvation from Trump it’s in what is happening now at the grassroots level. The average Joe at home, is not buying the party plank. Their question are not being answered. Frustratiion is growing. The uneducated are seeing Donnie for what he is. Little inconsequential election are being threatened., Big wins are reduced to small wins The unwashed masses are become malcontent

      That’s “winning” for you.

    OT, I think: I just got a Nigerian Banking scam routine on Facebook. It was from Spain. Looks likt the GOP and Trump are doing really good for the banking industrial scammers.

  • Gerry Fisher

    One of the recommendations I’ve read from people who’ve studied how to undermine authoritarianism and fascism is to make your point calmly and with facts. Then…repeat often. (Combined with other suggestions, such as belittling humor.) I don’t think this booing and “shouting down” town hall sessions are doing much other than giving the creeps excuses to stop doing town halls. I thin there are more effective ways to resist.

    • billbear1961

      No, when Democrats ONLY speak calmly and cite facts, the right shout us down and ridicule us.

      We have to be MUCH more aggressive than we’ve EVER been before. Every liar–every propagandist–politicians and pundits on TV and in the press–must be held ACCOUNTABLE, loudly ridiculed for their relentless LIES and insane extremism. For too long–over three decades–they’ve been allowed to get away with their lying BS, and they’ve never stopped getting WORSE. Democrats and REAL journalists have not loudly and aggressively held them accountable, and LOOK at what has happened!! Either it STOPS, or this republic is FINISHED!!

      Christ, we let them STEAL a SCOTUS seat in an unprecedented, nearly YEAR-LONG act of blatant SEDITION by a GOP Senate majority!! We did NOTHING to stop them, to stop that CRIME, that violation of the Constitution!! Their crime AND our COWARDICE are both INFAMOUS!!

      There is a Democratic Senator talking about bringing back the filibuster for SCOTUS nominees if we regain the majority in the Senate. We’ve learned NOTHING: we’re ready to let them ram their nominees onto the Court with as little as 51 votes while we’ll hand them the filibuster so that OUR nominees will need SIXTY votes!! It is this FOLLY, this SPINELESSNESS, that has come to DEFINE US!!

      We are NOW starting to use TeaParty tactics against the people who used these tactics to undermine US. They sabotaged PROGRESS. WE will sabotage THEIR efforts to destroy genuine democracy!!

      While our tactics must, from now on, be as aggressive as theirs, there is one MAJOR difference between the two sides: their main weapon has ALWAYS been baldfaced LYING–ours has always been, and must remain, telling the TRUTH, using FACTS against their LIES.

      But our dainty, kid-glove MANNER must CHANGE–we must FIGHT as we have NEVER fought BEFORE. Otherwise, all is LOST!!

      Those who cannot see this, after ALL that has happened in this country since the rise of Trumpist fascism, are BLIND!!

      • Joseph Miceli

        Absolutely 1000 percent correct! Use their tactics against them because that’s what wins!

        • billbear1961

          Good to see you, JM!

    • stevenj

      How has that worked over the decades when Republicans hear facts and soft spoken words about LGBT rights? It took a world war to end authoritarianism and fascism in Japan, Italy and Germany which was accomplished with bombs, bullets and a lot of death.

      The most effective way to protest should be at the ballot box. But as we’ve seen at these town halls all across the country there is a visceral rage aimed at (mostly) Republicans because constituents (and in Butte County voter demographics are split almost 50/50 between Repugs and Dems with another large group of “decline to state”) feel they are not being heard no matter what tone of voice they use. Oroville experienced a mass evacuation (200,000+) a few months ago because of damaged spillways at Oroville Dam and people (of all stripes) up there are still pissed over that.

      Yesterday Dianne Feinstein had a town hall in a western SF neighborhood which was packed and even some people yelled at her for not being more vocal.

    • Wrong. We have tried polite for years.

  • billbear1961

    What is this jackass suggesting, that a political meeting should be conducted like a church service?! (Does this shit believe he’s entitled to some kind of VENERATION?!)

    Where was HE, the goddamned HYPOCRITE, during Trump’s infamous NAZI political rallies, while Trump was egging his followers on to PUNCH his opponents in the FACE?!

  • Joseph Miceli

    I see the newsies covering this were all on LaMalfa’s side. I wonder what their coverage of the “Tea Party rage” was like? I’m betting the hypocrisy fairy made a stop at their news room.
