Last night in Kentucky at a public planned debate between Candidates Paul and Conway there were protests outside. There were people from MoveON and other liberal progressives as well as people from the Tea Party. One news station estimated the number at about 300. During the outside protests 2 Teabaggers decided to stomp on a young woman's head from MoveOn, It's ugly video. It is concerning on multiple levels. That no one went to help the young woman, that the police did not stop it or intervene, and that there were no arrests made. I am not a lawyer but from the video I have seen it does look like assault and battery.Another version of this Incident is on this blog and had enlarged photos to attempt to identify the Thugs on the video .

My main concern has been since the Summer of 2009 that the TeaParty has been allowed to engage Thuggery and Bullying and no one comments on it. It started during the HCR battle at Town Hall Meetings and even with Sick or disabled people or grieving families being harassed, and heckled or worse at Public Meetings. And the MSM bears alot of responsibility for this, by legitimizing their Hate Rhetoric and Hatemongering by calling them a true "movement". Now the BBC and The Guardian even are following their political antics and maneuvers. As an American it is embarrassing and Disgusting.
As an American I worry, how much worse is this going to get ? When is the MSM going to realize they have fed a Monster ? Because I think many of us do worry that at some point Someone will be hurt. For the Teaparty is not full of Political Mindful people it is full of Racists, Bigots,Thugs, White Supremacists, and Militia Members. Add All the Glorifying FREE Media Public Attention and their ramped up Misguided Anger and you have a recipe for Disaster.
