We recently brought you the startling footage of the Consumertocracy running amok in the streets of Albany, and it seems their threats just keep rolling in.
On March 2, 2011, menacing Consumertocracy leaders confronted and practically assaulted our brave mental illness policy hero, D.J. Jaffe as he made his way to testify at a joint budget hearing on Mental Hygiene in front of the New York State Legislature. Although, he was shaken, hair tousled, having difficulty articulating his words and comprehending the barrage of questions and information, he stood his ground and graciously attempted to communicate with these alleged “psychiatric survivors” in order to keep the situation from escalating to previous levels of chaos.
Thanks to D.J. Jaffe’s quick thinking and superb negotiation skills, no one got thrown off a subway platform at the event.
Will the brave Mr. Jaffe debate these Consumertocracy leaders? It’s too soon to tell. He did, however, decline the invitation to play in the Consumertocracy drumming circle.
