Posted: Updated:

Earlier this month, members of the Chicago Tea Party Patriots heckled a pair of town hall speakers who lost their daughter-in-law and unborn grandchild due to a medical emergency. Dan and Midge Hough wanted to explain how a lack of health care may have contributed to the two deaths.

The Houghs were on MSNBC's "The Ed Show" on Wednesday to discuss their experience. Afterward, Huffington Post Editor Roy Sekoff spoke with Ed Schultz about about the tone of public discourse in America and some of the shocking defenses being used to condone the behavior.
