What is it with North Carolina’s 2nd Congressional District? The previous representative, Bob Etheridge, manhandled a student on a Washington D.C. street for simply asking a question. The citizens had enough of that brutish behavior. They replaced him with Renee Ellmers, who has just as much contempt for the plebeians as did Etheridge.
Ron Woodward of NC Listen and a handful of constituents met with Rep. Renee Ellmers. Needless to say they ran into a hostile environment. Here is an excerpt of that meeting. You can read the rest by clicking the links below:
I have arranged 11 group trips to Washington, DC over the last 12 years to meet with US House members and US Senators from North Carolina to discuss immigration reform, not to mention other trips I made to DC myself and local trips, so I have had a lot of experience meeting with members of Congress. Today's meeting with Congresswoman Ellmers was the most contemptible meeting with a member of Congress I have taken part in. From the beginning she showed a sense of arrogance and disdain for meeting with us.
If you heard the audio clip from the Laura Ingraham radio show of Laura interviewing Renee Ellmers, today was deja vu. When she wasn't interrupting me she was constantly changing the subject, with a look of glee in her eye as if she thought she was being clever. I have studied immigration and immigration policies for nearly 20 years, and she was the most misinformed and uninformed member of Congress I have ever spoken with on the matter of immigration reform.....and that is saying something.
Just as Congresswoman Ellmers called Laura Ingraham ignorant during their interview, Congresswoman Ellmers went a few steps further by calling me ignorant, a racist, and dense during our meeting.......these insults were sprinkled through our discussion which was about immigration policies and her own statements about immigration reform. I refrained from any personal name calling. As we know, these kinds of insults are usually used by those who have weak arguments or are under the age of ten.
Below is a recap of some of the matters I tried to discuss as she attempted to change the subject approximately every 30 seconds. Our meeting eventually lasted about 40 minutes.
PJ Media has video clips of the meeting. Conservative HQ has the transcript as related by NC Listen. Both are worth the time.
