Report: Attack on Jindal Aide and Boyfriend Politically Motivated (Beaten for wearing Palin buttons)
Tuesday, April 13, 2010 | Kristinn

Posted on 04/13/2010 8:47:27 AM PDT by kristinn


Joe Brown and Allee Bautsch

Allee Bautsch, chief campaign fundraiser for Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, and her boyfriend Joe Brown, were savagely beaten Friday night in New Orleans after leaving a Republican party fundraising dinner by a group of thugs who reportedly targeted the couple because they were wearing Sarah Palin pins.

Bautch's leg was broken and Brown incurred a broken jaw and nose as well as a concussion.

The Hayride reports that a source who visited Bautsch at the hospital the day after the attack says they were told the couple was attacked for wearing Palin buttons:

Two people at the Brennan’s event have now confirmed that the protest had largely broken up by the time it ended, but we also understand from someone who visited Allee Bautsch in the hospital Saturday morning that she and Brown were followed and attacked expressly because they had Palin pins on (she heard one of the attackers say “Let’s get them, they have Palin pins on” – so the attack WAS politically motivated as its victims understood it. It was not a mugging, it was not an argument gone wrong and it was not a bar fight.

The story of a Republican and her boyfriend being viciously attacked for wearing Palin buttons has yet to make national headlines, unlike say, unfounded rumors of nasty words being said by Tea Party protesters.

Why weren’t they packing? Louisiana is open carry and permits are very easy to obtain. I almost always packed in New Orleans.

They weren’t thinking the “correct” thoughts and were justifiably beaten for it.

They are lucky they were not killed

Godspeed in their physical healing, but emotionally it may be never

This may be a taste of what the left has planned for future Tea Party gatherings

The media sat on the news of kidnapping and firebombing plots at the 2008 RNC Convention and even the subsequent convictions.

The MSM serves the DNC, they regularly collude on news items. Same as Pravda’s collusion with the Soviets in the Cold War. Don’t look for truth in the MSM; all the news “fit to print”.

Terrible story and terrible lack of media coverage—but I love that someone in that position on Jindal’s staff was wearing a Palin button.

Here's some great marketing material -- whatever "goes together like a .45 and a Palin pin."

If the MSM can’t blame the tea baggers, it ain’t news. I avoid the MSM at all costs, and if I’m subjected to it involuntarily, I write it off as hype. CNN and the major networks are no longer capable of objectivity; they don’t even try.

Does this qualify as a HATE CRIME ?
