Dirty Politics in Loudoun County
Victim | 10/31/03 | Self

Posted on 10/31/2003 6:51:01 AM PST by BCR #226

I knew politics were dirty but this is out of hand. A friend of mine was struck by a car last night.

Also, to let you know, Dick Black is a very conservative Delegate for the 32nd district in Virginia. He's a fine example of humanity and a good friend.

I've removed the participants names out of courtesy.

Here is a copy of the email I received...

FYI. Be careful out there. Text in []'s is mine.

FWIW the person struck is about 6' tall and must weigh close to 300 pounds.

-- Forwarded message from XXXXX@aol.com

XXXX XXXXX and I put up an entire package of signs [for Delegate Black] last night and this morning. Let me write first that I am fine.

When we came down Algonkian Parkway, ALL of the signs we put up along the Parkway were GONE. When we got up to Lowes Island Boulevard, those signs were there. While we were waiting at the light to go back south, a car pulled up, and the man inside took down two of the signs and threw them in the back seat of the car.

I "sprinted" across Algonkian (such as it is with my ankle). I was actually RUN DOWN BY THE DRIVER! I went up the hood, into the windshield, and off the passenger's side of the windshield/roof.

I landed many feet down the road, and two lanes across the road. My glasses were about 20 feet further down the road, and my cell phone was about the same distance away, but in a different direction. He ripped up my camera case, and change was on the road. I crawled around, gathering up my stuff, then got up. My spectacles have a small divot out of one of the lenses, and my new cell phone (still in the trial period) is all scratched up. The deputy took my phone as evidence. I have no idea why, but XXXX thought he heard something on the Sheriff's radio about marks on the car.

I have abrasions on my head, knee, thigh, and hip, but thankfully nothing was broken. Though I hit my head, I never passed out. I called the Sheriff's Office, and they put out an alert. While the deputy was taking my report, they caught the guy that hit me.

He stated I threw something at him, but the deputies apparently saw through it.

XXXX X XXXXXX

Again, politics is getting dirty. The 'rats are playing hardball. I just hope they realize the consequenses of their actions.

Please say a prayer for my friend. He's okay but man, that had to be freaky.

Damn Liberals are dangerous and the sooner we take them on the better.They are even trying to stop parents from teaching moral values and dictate what can and cant be said and taught in the home.
Liberals and Democrats are going to turn America into a communist state.

Dirty politics? More like dangerous politics.

Delegate Black is without a doubt the most pro-life, pro-RKBA, fiscal conservative legislator from northern Virginia. I'm not surprised the liberals are trying to take him - and his volunteers - out any way possible, even if it involves violence and/or trampling on other people's First Amendment rights.

More proof that liberals will destroy people and our country...anything to get BACK IN POWER...all that matters to them.

The violent driver sounds like a Union Thug...many times the people that put out RAT signs.

Here in SW VA, more Republican signs have been disappearing than every before!!

I am pondering making a knock-off of this image:

Not a bad idea. I might try something similar, though I expect I'll go for an interesting locale rather than exotic hardware.

Of course, with a little Photoshop touchup, we might get a little anachronistic....

Maybe *An old Civil Warrior reads and ruminates...*

You know who I'd really wish had hung around long enough to be photographed with a copy of Matt's book? And who could have given us one of his snorting and leering but right-to-the-point comments about it, good or bad, probably heavily influenced by how his day was going, and what he might have had in his glass at the end of the day, to celebrate having made it through another one....

Amazing how much I miss The Old Watusi. And I think he'd have liked the book.

Yes, I know... behind me stands a platoon of dead folks, friends, relatives, and comrades from years past, who fell by the wayside as I strode through life.

I look back, and there they are, dim in the mists of memory, but still following along with every step I take, smiling those old Go To Hell smiles from times good and bad and hard.

God's own Son couldn't get off this world alive, so I guess we can't expect any better... but I have to run- got a terminally-ill Mother-in-law to go & check on this morning, dogs to let out, cats to feed. Reality calls...

"Is this a part of it?"

Yeah, I'd say so. If it were a single instance, no, but it is a valid ping as just another example of what's going on. I do think there's going to be considerably more of this, especially in 2004.

2004 is shaping up to be a very violent and ugly year. It's the cold war about to run white hot that many of us know is coming. My tag line speaks of my sentiments.

Per your blue book cover link:

You considered using the same illustration for your second book of the trilogy, only on a blue instead of yellow background? You've set a sort of precident with your link, and I bet the T-shirts would be big movers.

That also leaves the question of what to use for the third one. Blue + Yellow= green, but red might be a possibility too. [Just thinking ahead...]

It's not likely, but just on the off chance that EFAD takes off like the next *All your base are belong to us* you need to be ready to jump on top of it and surf on the wave.

I like another of Otto's quotes:

"Never believe anything in politics until it has been officially denied."

You gotta love that wry sense of humor, so rare in a spiked-helmet kraut.

He was that, literally. But somehow, he looks like a fun guy, and I expect he'd have been just as home in an American Lodge Hall wearing a hat with antlers on it, a tarboosh, or a military campaign hat, field cap, or pilotka canoe cap.

It doesn't seem too much of a stretch to think of him tipping a jug with American president Andy Jackson, or with Congressman Davy Crockett of Tennessee, later one of the Texians at the Alamo.

I hate all those signs, Damn litter is what they are. Does anyone vote because they saw a roadside sign? Is that what makes the difference? And then they never clean them up. By Law, They have 48 hours from the close of the election.

BTW, I hope your friend feels better.

Anyway, Black will beat Patti again and again.

Yes, Black won. Again. Fortunately.

Know what's worse? The current (and soon to be former) Commonwealth Attorney's office is refusing to file charges against the driver. I'm not surprised.
