Rand Paul curbstomp brigade

Teabaggers KKKeep it KKKlassy!  Check out what happened tonight outside a Rand Paul/Jack Conway debate, when a douchebagger teabagger Paul supporter stomped a woman’s head.  That’s right, stomped a woman’s head.

Mark my words, it won’t be long before these brainless cretins kill someone.  And it’ll be the Lamestream Media’s fault.

    I don’t know, seems a little alarmist.

    What these two guys did is criminal, and I am happy to see that it appears they will be both identified and prosecuted.

    But that this indicates a trend that is likely to lead to homicide? Not so much.

    Even in the video, I was surprised that in a situation like this there wasn’t substantially more violence toward Lauren. At the opening scenes I expected to see something really awful; I was leery of continuing watching, ’cause I hate to see stuff like that.

    Was releive — relieved of what I had expected — when it appeared that the guy in plaid was apparently only trying to hold her down (he wasn’t punching her, and so on), and the guy who puts his foot on her doesn’t do the sort of really violent head stomping I have seen elsewhere, which is potentially fatal.

    The Rand Paul campaign had separated themselves from this guy in plaid, and Rand Paul himself has condemned the actions.

    Leading to homicide? C’mon.

    Note: I am not excusing or advocating violence, though I know someone here will accuse me of it.

    There is no justification for a man’s boot on a woman’s neck or head when she is prone, thrown and immobile. Ever.

    Tim Proffit may or may not be charged with misdemeanor fourth degree assault – it`s still an assault.
    The Paul campaign has dropped him and banned him, Proffitt blames police and doesn`t address what he did to a 23 year old female. It`s about appearance to him.

    “I’m sorry that it came to that, and I apologize if it appeared overly forceful,but I was concerned about Rand’s safety.“

    The way {cough} “political debate” is developing in the US (thanks in large measure to the rhetoric of Glenn Beck’s and Sarah Palin’s of their times) this sort of thing does not surprise me – look for more violence as the next presidential election ramps up.

    stageleft – Indeed — this is just a midterm, usually the most boring and uneventful of USian elections.

    Given that they start their presidential campaign pretty much the next day after the midterms, I shudder to imagine what kind of psychological shape the RWNJs will be in a year from now as the presidential campaign and the accompanying hysterical rhetoric spiral out of control.

    I am increasingly convinced that only a catastrophic event (death) will make these people take a step back from the precipice and look at themselves, and I’m not even sure that would be enough.

    fern hill – I noticed that on the video. Apparently charges are being laid on these fuckwads and hopefully they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    “…I was concerned about Rand’s safety.“

    These guys really slay me. Concerned about his safety from a 23-yr-old, 110-lb girl with a sign. Right.

    This supposedly ‘liberty-loving’ movement has an extreme fascist element on full display in this video: that was nothing but the shutdown of dissent, writ large.

    Audrey 😆 Yeah, I think he had to walk that one back later.

    But to be fair to Rand Paul, it’s possible that when he made that statement he was unaware of the full extent of what happened. It sounds like the kind of remark that would be made before knowing all the facts, because something had to be said quickly.

    But that this indicates a trend that is likely to lead to homicide? Not so much.

    I hope you’re right, but I doubt it 😐

    The trend toward violent behaviour is obvious, especially if you also look at the last 18 months as a continuation of the final weeks of the 2008 presidential campaign. At first it was just the screamy-shouty stuff, people yelling “Kill him!” etc. at Palin rallies. Then the health care town halls where they were yelling at everyone including disabled people in wheelchairs. Onto the next step — a woman gets punched out by a Sharron Angle supporter, and now this disgusting incident. (Which BTW could easily have led to this young woman’s death: people have been killed by getting curb-stomped.)

    The trajectory seems pretty clear to me.

    You’re going to love this, JJ. The Paultard (v. 2.0) who curb-stomped the “uppity librul” is going full Ginni Thomas and demanding an apology from the woman he assaulted!

    Un-freakin’-believable.

    Good morrow, all!
    In 1776, the population of the (fledgling)United States was about four million. Out of that four million, approximately forty thousand people – white, male, Christian landowners – were qualified to vote.
    Let’s do the math: about forty thousand, out of about four million, is about one percent.
    One percent – caling the shots, making the decisions, deciding the politicial, economic and social destiny of the other ninety-nine percent.
    That is what the Tea Party sees as the ideal America, as the nation that the Founding Fathers saw. No uppity women, no uppity coloreds, no uppity minorities of any description making up any part of the process.
    One percent – telling the other ninety-nine percent how it is, how it’s gonna be, how it should be.
    That is democracy as the Tea Party sees it.

    JAB – Thanks for the heads up!

    One percent – telling the other ninety-nine percent how it is, how it’s gonna be, how it should be.

    It’s funny, because that’s probably how the tea party people feel that America is being run right now: they are the silent majority, and the Democrats in power are the 1% forcing their unpopular policies on everyone. As usual, the truth is somewhere in between. The TP probably represents about 20% of USians: a significant minority, but a minority nonetheless. Most conservatives are not teabaggers.

    Brian,

    Accidents happen. I doubt these idiots intended or many similiar idiots intend to “kill”. But something is going to get out of hand soon. And someone could be killed. Don’t really ever see Democrats in these kind of positions. Always seems to be Republicans or right extremists.

    Oh, I suppose you want to blame the media for that. How convienient.


Wait. What?
