Stomped On The Head

I’d be remiss not to run a picture of the woman, Lauren Valle,  who got stomped on the head by supporters of  Kentucky  Republican U.S. Senate nominee Rand Paul.

Ms. Valle was exercising her first amendment rights. She was unarmed. She was a threat to nobody.

This type of act seems not surprising given the consistently angry tone of the Tea Party.

It’s frustrating that we have to live with this kind of thing. Why would you do this to somebody who was vastly outnumbered at a Rand Paul event, and who was not a threat?

What’s in you that this is your response to disagreement? How can this be part of American democracy?

  1. Today, her head. Tomorrow: yours or mine.

  2. This type of hateful intimidation is what the Tea Party is all about. Don’t stand for it. Vote for what’s right in this country of ours, vote Democrat.

  3. Hi, Neil, I’m curious because I don’t know. Did you have the same level of outrage when Ken Gladney was beaten by SEIU members? I’ve met Mr. Gladney, he seems like a nice man.
