Need the hate list against Democrats ..... ummmm, hmmmm ....(crickets and frogs) ....
What about the guy who had part of his little finger bitten off by a leftist in Thousand Oaks, California?
I don’t remember the details, but it did happen.
It was last year, BTW.
March 21, 2010, The Constitution was assaulted by a group of Marxist Congressmen. Not the first time.
LOL!!!!!!!!!!!1 Yeah, that was pretty violent, too!
What about the comprehensive list of violence against Democrats...
Is that cricket chirping I hear?
Violent and ugly. I hope the Constitution presses charges.
It just might.
As you requested:
There are dozens of examples just on the issue of immigration. Pay particular attention to the last one...where the other side was calling for violence against Tea Partiers.
Anti illegal alien rallies usually wind up with one of our citizens being attacked. Jim Gilchrist, who started the MMP was surrounded in his house, his neighbors harrassed. He was rushed on stage at Columbia University.
[snip]Remember those Columbia University students who rushed James Gilchrist on stage at Columbia University last year? Well if not you can see the video below. They were handed their punishment, which was described by one student as a slap on the wrist. I look at it as encouragement to do it again.
Minutemen and Police Attacked by Illegal Alien Activists
Another time an elderly lady was attacked with a frozen bottle of water.
[snip]For example, Dottie Dalton, a 66-year old grandmother, suffered inner-cranial trauma when she was hit with a frozen bottle of water thrown by a protester averse to the Minuteman Project during a rally in Baldwin Park, California on May 14, 2005. Dennis Slater was battered on Nov. 3, 2007 by a dozen illegal alien day laborers who ganged up on him after he protested their hiring site at a Home Depot in Canoga Park, California. Ten sutures were required to close a wound to his skull from a baseball-size rock.
In their efforts to suppress freedom of thought and speech, anarchists, unscrupulous business interests, and criminal mentalities are quick to attack the law-abiding.
There have been so many of these incidences, its hard to compile them all. Remember the journalist who was attacked for merely covering a protest and screamed at by latinos as a white b!tC#! There are so many instances of the same calling for violence I cant even begin to count them. And they are often side by side SEIU, and other communist groups.
This is interesting, with photo of the hurt man from a tea party protest
Friday, November 20, 2009
In Fort Lauderdale, violence broke out Saturday at when pro-amnesty activists brutally beat two immigration protesters. The clash occurred when tea party protesters entered the protest zone of****** amnesty proponents who had e-mailed group members calling for a militant confrontation with tea-baggers,******* the Christian Science Monitor reported.
In Phoenix, a scuffle broke out Saturday between tea partyers and a group of neo-Nazis brandishing a swastika flag and a portrait of Adolf Hitler. Members of the National Socialist Movement found themselves shut out of the event, organized by American Citizens United, leading to shoving and shouting. Police intervened quickly, and no one was hurt.
Dozens of similar demonstrations across the country have erupted in violence in connection with the immigration reform debate and other issues such as healthcare:
Members of the Service Employees International Union beat a state worker at a town hall meeting this month, according to an NBC report. A woman filming the violence also was accosted.
In September, a nationalized healthcare advocate bit off the finger of a healthcare opponent after the protester pointed it at him, the Associated Press reported.
Also last summer, a handicapped woman in a wheelchair was attacked by a protester at an Obama town hall in New Hampshire. Another protester kicked an armed man in the groin and spit into a camera filming it.
At a tea party in Milwaukee, a heckler attacked several people and rushed the stage while a speaker was talking, YouTube video shows. Police tackled and removed him.
Sept 3, 2009 - About 100 protesters sponsored by MoveOn.org were having a rally supporting health care reform. A group of anti-health care reform protesters formed across the street. The finger-biting incident occurred after a member of the group protesting health care reform, William Rice, 65, of Newbury Park, became involved in a heated discussion with a member of Code Pink, sheriffs Capt. Ross Bonfiglio said. After the argument, Rice returned to where his own group was standing. A man from Moveon.orgs area then walked over to the opponents and verbally confronted Rice, allegedly calling him names and acting aggressively, Bonfiglio said. Rice later told investigators he felt threatened by the man and punched him in the nose, Bonfiglio said. The punch set off a fist fight between the two men, during which the tip of Rices left pinky finger was bitten off, Bonfiglio said. Rice drove himself to Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center in Thousand Oaks. Another man found the bitten-off portion of the finger and brought it to Rice at the hospital, Bonfiglio said.
Wow! That last one is, indeed, worth looking at. Thanks again.
