Video showing what happened when Rupert Murdoch got attacked by the pie. The person who did the attacking is man who does both comedy and activism, named “Jonnie Marbles”. Overall, this is simply an outright show trial of the worse type and also the pie throwing incident just simply shows how low the radical left will go.

Who admitted the assailant? Did he have an invitation from an MP? What were the security screening procedures? I am suspicious that there was inside assistance to get the plate, cream and assailant into the small hearing room.

Also, kudos to Murdoch's wife and the other woman on the left who shielded him. They were much more effective that the security and police personnel.

We are seeing an attack on a source of New Media. The goal here is to bring Foxnews to heel.

We’ll see if this activist/comedian (can you just imagine how funny he is?) gets off with a wrist slap or gets the book thrown at him.

This "scandal" has as its goal the elimination of FOX news. The left failed with its attempt to bring back the "Fairness Doctrine." The left is failing in its attempt to ban FOX from the White House. Thus, they will use this episode in an attempt to "break up" FOX. Note the ongoing "Boom" The MSM, Politicians, Comedians, there will probably be a major motion picture. In three weeks time the public will be screaming to break up FOX and jail Murdoch.

The conservatives of this country fail to realize that debate, discussion and the expression of different points of view does not apply to said conservatives. I do not believe that normal political means will stop the leftist march to total victory.

Going after Murdoch for this scandal would have been like going after Sumner Redstone, CEO of Viacom, parent company of CBS, for the Rathergate forgery.

It's fairly simple: When you have a big media event in the House of Commons or in the US Congress, you make sure there is security close by... and as soon as someone headed in his/her direction gets within 15 feet, Security moves in to head him off, while others watch in case he's a distraction.

And yet, they don't learn.

I doubt it, to be very honest and here is the reason why. When I heard Mark Steyn today who subbed for Rush Limbaugh, he said something about the British cell phones having a special set of default numbers of “0000” and “1234”. Plus also these things have a way of falling apart in short time.

That is false. His son was not close enough to get to the attacker before Wendy did. There were several people between son and father.

Have you ever seen “Zombieland”? That is where this is going... or maybe “Idiocracy”... but I think it will be far worse than that.

The Left's motto since at least the 1960s has been "by any means necessary." Only a tiny number of conservatives really grasp what that means. They continue to play by gentleman's rules in a political struggle to the death with murderous street fighters. Unless that changes there can be only one outcome.

Agreed. The left is in control or has a major influence in every significant American institution; the media, the economy, universities and schools, thus controlling the development of children, mainstream churches; art and literature; music, the administration of government federal, state and local-you name it! There are of course conservative voices but it is only a matter of time until they are silenced. The left means to govern.

Yes, we on the Conservative, constitutional side have greatly underestimated our opposition. The Democratic Party and the Liberal Establishment has been totally taken over by the hard left. Most Conservatives still don't understand what they are up against. David Horowitz and Michael Savage are among just a few people who understand what we are up against. Yes, I know Savage has issues and he's prone to going off on tangents, but he understands the hard left just how vicious they are. Horowitz, because he was once among their numbers, also understands this group.

Conservatives have got to stop bringing knives to a gun fight.

What is the worse case situation is that we will see what Mark Steyn said today could very well become a “bust-up” or breaking up via a new civil war or second American revolution in the USA before the left wins. The way and the means will not be pretty.

Do not forget also Mark Levin, he has spoken a lot on the issue of what is called a “soft tyranny”.

John Galt are the private free-enterprise people who produce the jobs. He is holding back because of a government that has gotten too big, too much spending, and over-taxing, and regulations.

I think the left has already won. The only issue remaining is the degree of tyrannical oppression they will impose on the more conservative peoples. The left currently controls every major American institution, they have gone a great distance towards dis-integrating our society(divide and conquer)by playing on natural racial antipathies; divided men and women, separating children from parental control, approved and made desireable drugs, sodomy, free love. In short, they have achieved in creating a trivial vice addicted society. The left has virtually destroyed the family the very basis of any healthy nation.

But in the end, it will all backfire in the left’s faces because those folks who are conservative may very well push back and as I said, we could see either a new civil war or second American revolution.

Situational awareness. The Mrs.Murdock is continuously aware of her moneybags and will attack any perceived threat with prejudice and force. The Limeys in the room were like a deer in the headlights. Hell, Murdocks son jumped up and back away from the action. Murdock, himself, remained in character as a semi-demented man(who is as sharp as a tack), not even turning his head to look at assailant. Mrs. Murdock is the hero.

She was behind Rupert, the son was sitting to his right. They were basically the same distance from the attacker, and Wendi got a punch by the time the son started to stand.

You can see the son immediately to Rupert's right, closest person to him.

Rupert Was Humble, But Wendi Hit Back

We should have known when she entered the room with her 80-year-old husband that Wendi Deng would be the star of the show.

Wearing a bright pink jacket and black skirt, at the start of the hearing she examined the label on the bottle of House of Commons mineral water - checking it for poison, perhaps? - and then poured Rupert a glass.

...Nearly two-and-a-half hours into the hearing, a man calling himself Jonny Marbles - who had clearly lost his - leapt towards Mr Murdoch from his right-hand side, brandishing a paper plate with shaving foam on it, to make it look like a custard pie. But Wendi was too quick for him.

She leapt forward and appeared to clout her husband's assailant and prevented a much more serious incident.

And one of his attorneys. The, short, dark haired woman in the blue/gray suit was even faster to Murdock's defense.

The replay shows people between her and her husband, she dove over a couple of people to get to the guy. It looked as though the son was testifying and paying attention to his questioner while she had a better view of what was going to happen. Murdock screened the son from a good view.

The front view was not what the replay showed.
