Rand Paul Thug
Violence Against Women: 2 Points

Nothing like watching a big man stomp a woman’s head and give her a concussion.

A prelude to Second Amendment remedies!

Moveon (dot) org activist, Lauren Valle spoke briefly to the Associated Press before being taken to the hospital.

Valle carried a sign mocking Paul’s ties to corporate special interests.  She was trying to get Paul in a photo with the sign and was assaulted as soon as the candidate walked away.  Police say they are investigating the incident and have not yet identified the man who stomped Valle’s head.

A statement from Rand Paul’s campaign:

We want everybody to be civil. We want this campaign to be about issues. I will tell you that when we arrived there was enormous passion on both sides. It really was something where you walk into a haze of lights flashing, people yelling and screaming, bumping up. And there was a bit of a crowd control problem. I don’t want anybody though to be involved in things that aren’t civil. I think this should always be about the issues. And it is an unusual situation to have so many people so passionate on both sides jockeying back and forth. And it wasn’t something that I liked or anybody liked about that situation. So I hope in the future it is going to be better.”

  1. way to make a half-assed statement condemning violence from your supporters…the guy should be arrested for assault and battery

      • fucking bullies man… fucking bullies… right wing populism, the appetizer

        i’m prepped for more of this bullying the next decade or so… the tea party effort alone represents about a half billion dollars worth of rage…

        this, this reprehensible piece of shit, he’s the fucking pay-out… the dividend return on their investment into FreedomWorks, Citizens for a Sound Economy, Americans for Prosperity, NewsMax, Fox and of course, the sloppy tea bagger movement….

        this has me so enraged

  2. Official Tea Party Statement:

    “It’s not our fault if people believe us when we use the rhetoric of revolution and violence, when we speak from ignorance and bigotry. It’s the fault of the fascist, socialist, liberal, communist Democrats who disagree with us. Look, there’s one now! Get her!”

    • “I’m sorry if your fee-fees were hurt when I filed an assault charge against you after you stepped on my head. After the trial and subsequent incarceration and/or payment of fines, perhaps we can establish a dialog on how men can best refrain from stepping on the heads of women and thus avoid any future hurt fee-fees.”

        • writechic, I have heard that excuse from wife beaters before and Profitt and his defenders are just as bad – I had one person on another blog say “well she’s a liberal” – oh wait, so us Liberals deserve to be manhandled and a boot in our face?! These people are soooo so unbelievable

      • Expect a lot more of it. Poor people should apologize to the rich bankers who robbed them. Patients should apologize to the doctors who cut the wrong leg off and robbed them. Dying children should apologize to the insurance companies who found sneaky ways to not pay for healthcare, and robbed them of money and life. Indians should apologize to the white men who killed them and robbed them. Jews should apologize to the Nazis.

        Nah! No more. Kick ’em back and kick ass. Fuck them! If they raise a fist, break off their arm. It’s time for Democrats and Progressives and Liberals and whoever all to stop acting like a bunch of candy ass cowards. We’ve had two years of this shit and it’s enough, it’s way past enough. If Valle had friends in that crowd they should have jumped in and started fighting for her. These people on the right are arrogant, ignorant bullies. Treat them that way. Knock ’em down and if they get up knock ’em down again. Fuck this pussy bullshit.

      • Thanks – given at birth.

        And yes it is so typical to demand an apology, deflect attention and flat out defend what any sane person regardless of party affiliation should be condemning
