Political Violence

Been watching the union people, marching and protesting, and all excited. These guys are all wound up about the Koch people helping libertarian causes.  They don’t seem to mind Occidental heir Al Gore or George Soros dumping hundreds of millions, but they find that the quiet Koch family support of Americans for prosperity particularly troubling, and the language and rhetoric by the leftist protestors is as disturbing as the unfounded accusations made of the Teapartiers.

Tabitha Hale gets assaulted, and there is no press coverage. No apologies.

Basically, it’s ridiculous. I’m a 5′1 female in a dress, and he was standing up on a garden wall above me in the courtyard. He hardly felt threatened. I was stunned, because generally protesters are there to, you know, get their message out. They don’t normally shy away from the camera.

I’m very much okay, and very appreciative of the support from my fellow bloggers and activists today. I am, however, shaken up by the level of sheer hatred I experienced today. The look of fury on his face in the close up is appalling. I had not exchanged a word with him. He didn’t know who I was. He didn’t even know my name, what I do. He had probably surmised that I was with FreedomWorks and that was enough.

This just can’t be tolerated anymore. It’s one thing to be called a violent teabagger. It’s another to be called a violent teabagger while you’re being assaulted. They’ve been comparing themselves to the Egyptians ousting Mubarak. Looks like they’re not too far off, given that they share the tendency to assault women with cameras.

Perhaps all this lack of civility could be passed off as just wild aberations of the left. But I cant recall one documented case of such poor behavior at any Tea Party Rally. Nope not even once.
