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 Brennans 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 Lets 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.
James Carvile’s city.
hello msm??!!! friday nite and this is the first i have heard of it...anyone else..??...
So the gloves are off?....
SEIU thugs again?
Why weren’t they packing? Louisiana is open carry and permits are very easy to obtain. I almost always packed in New Orleans.
Wow!.....Friday night?.....The media is crap in this country!!!
I wonder if the attackers were wearing snappy brown shirts.
time to apply for my ccw permit....
Everyone needs to email this story out to everyone they know...NOW.
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
Note to thugs:
This is a fight you will not win!
You think we’re pi$$ed now...keep pushing us!
Revolutions are born of this stuff!
Impossible! ‘DemonRATS’ are people of peace, love and tolerance. ;-)
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.
WTF? This is really starting to get personal. These leftists can’t get away with this crap.
Wow, this is horrible. I have to go out, bookmark for later.
