Barney Frank Insults Persons with Disabilities

In this 8 minute clip from MSNBC US Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) expresses his hate speech toward persons with disabilities. He says, (at 5:20) "if anybody needs a health care plan in America it's those people who are in severe need of mental health services. This lunacy about [death panels] . . . " Here Rep. Frank who called US Supreme Court Justice Scalia a "homophobe" indicates his belief that persons accused of mental illness should be ignored because what they say is nonsense because of their alleged disability. This is what permits institutional abuses of persons with disabilities. Caregivers, police, politicians and lawyers ignore their complaints about abuse because? Because they think they are mentally ill. Later (at 7:00) he says, "arguments against the Obama plan are being dominated by the crazies." One more example of Franks's bigotry toward persons with disabilities. Barney Frank's doctrine: If they are crazy they should be ignored.
