Outside the Conway-Rand Paul debate in KY, Paul supporters held down a woman from MoveOn while another stomped on her neck and head. The woman was attempting to present Paul with a mock Employee of the Month award from Republicorp representing the merger of the GOP and business interests controlling political speech.

She was representing the liberal organization MoveOn.org and claimed to be presenting Paul with an award from RepubliCorp. That's a group created by MoveOn.org that focuses on what it calls the merger between corporate America and the Republican Party.

"I'm here to present Rand Paul with the 'Employee of the Month' award, however his supporters were not very nice to me and my message which is same as everyone else. I got my head stepped on and I have a bit of a headache," said Lauren Valle, MoveOn.org.

The woman denied police were involved, but right afterwards officers pulled her aside to question her about the incident.
Freedom of Speech? A Right to Dissent? Reasonable, logical discourse? Hey, if you don't think like these jerks do and you want to ask an irritating, pesky question, you can just kiss your fuckin ass goodbye....because, nobody cares, not even the corrupt racist stupid cops.... ohh cripes...did I offend any of you neo nazi teabaggin sumbags out there? Excuse me......but just, please,
 Compare this incident of actual thuggery to the wingnuts' favorite example of supposed "union thuggery," the fake victimhood of wingnut Kenneth Gladney. (The folks at SEIU have a complete rundown of just how deeply phony that entire incident really was.) It also brings to mind certain other history lessons.

Paul never apologized to the woman for what one of his county campaign chairman did to this woman. The coward! No remorse typifies the Tea Party thugs!!

Hello Microdot,
I saw this last night on the news and the thought that went through my mind was the Teabaggers are seeing their candidates failing by the truckload, one after another, and this violent reaction is the Freudian desperate acting out of what they are recognizing as their viewpoints failing.

The more sane aspects of the population are finally seeing the Tea Party for what it really is. Like a Twinkie that is golden and fluffy with the promise of sweetness on the inside but the reality being that it is nothing more than toxic waste with enough preservatives to poison anyone.

We have all now been able to see first hand how the Tea Party Twinkies are nothing more than a repeat of any other hate group. This clip could have easily been recorded in the 1930’s and the Brown Shirts of Nazi Germany….One in the same.

I can't help but remember the non stop hooting by our buddy Sepp when the Kenneth Gladney incident allegedly occurred. He was outraged over an incident which was doubtful at the time and then in subsequent days, was totally discredited and has dropped into the trash bin of history when the legal case by Gladney and his supporters was thrown out.

The stomper in this video is ironically wearing a "Don't Tread On Me!" button. The depth of hypocrisy is found in an ocean whose depth has never and will probably never be found.

I agree with EoK, this reminds me of facist groups beating up on those who dare question.
