Alaska Congressman Don Young Tries to Bully Dr. Douglas Brinkley

No doubt Alaska Congressman Don Young receives a lot of money from the fossil fuel industry. In 2007, it was also reported that he was the subject of a federal investigation for taking illegal money. See the article and the video from (11-22-11) that shows how the thuggish Congressman Young tries to bully the emminent historian Dr. Douglas Brinkleywho was invited to testify in Congress about preserving the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). The Washington Post (11-18-11) has an article and a video, and MSNBC also describes Young's despicable treatment of Dr. Brinkley.

Congressman Young didn't attend Dr. Brinkley's presentation, but he managed to arrive late and call it "trash." Young sounds like some ranting, senile, old drunk. He is supposed to ask the professor questions; instead, this ignorant buffoon just sits up on his high table and insults the distinguished witness. He reminds me of Khrushchev pounding his shoe on the table in the United Nations.

Because evil, greedy, thieving, un-American politician-bullies like Congressman Young, Senator Inhofe, Congressman Joe Barton, and Virginia's Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli hound, humiliate, and persecute our great teachers, I have started voting for the Democrats.

Here is Dr. Douglas Brinkley's page at Amazon. Many of his books are available on Kindle.
