William & Mary Student Punched During Anti-Abortion Demonstration

(AP) - Officials at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg say a female student taking part in an anti-abortion demonstration at the school was punched and knocked down by another woman.

College authorities are withholding the victim's name. She told campus police she was passing out literature Tuesday night during a demonstration by a group called William and Mary Students for Life.

William and Mary spokesman Bill Walker says the victim told police that a woman struck her and pushed her to the ground rather than accept the piece of literature.

Walker says school officials don't approve of physical violence, and says they "will be looking actively" for the person who punched the demonstrator.

You're trying to take money from people who kill for a living. A few precautions might be advisable. A few punches is getting off lightly.

More evidence that the leftism is an open-minded, tolerant ideology, just as Islam is a Religeon of Peace.

Can't help but wonder what the College would be doing if it was a pro-abortion woman who had been decked by an anti-abortion proponent.

Wanna bet they'd be tearing up the place looking to find her?

will be looking actively

I call BS!

What needs to be noted is this is the typical liberal tactic. Slash tires, rampage opposition headquarters, throw pies, disrupt verbally...see a pattern here?

Ever see conservatives do that anywhere close to the same scale?

Can we just say liberals are immature brats?

I think you both read this wrong:

Whe was punched out for being Anti-abortion...let's see how fast you guys change your tune.

****************

It appears that the other posters did understand the story. No change of tune necessary.

When OJ is finished checking out all the golf courses where Nicole's killer might be hiding, they are going to have him help find the assailant at Wm. and Mary. I think he has an opening in 2008.

Yes, the pattern is clear. Thank goodness she wasn't passing out MOO-slum cartoons (same playbook, just a later chapter).

I'm afraid you read us wrong. We're both mocking the school for it's ridiculously tepid response to this violent attack. My reply put Chris Rock's words in the administrator's mouth: namely, "we don't condone violence... but then again that anti-choidce fascist had it coming."
