Mother of Beaten Jindal Staffer Breaks Silence to Fox News (Bautsch Stomped, Leg Broken Four Places)
Human Events ^ | Friday, April 16, 2010 | Connie Hair

Posted on 04/16/2010 12:10:54 PM PDT by kristinn

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly has finally broken the wall of silence on major news coverage of the brutal beating of Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s top fundraising staffer. A full transcript follows below.

Della Burning, mother of Jindal staffer Allee Bautsch, confirmed that her daughter had been savagely beaten. She refused to discuss whether or not politics were involved (although at one point in the interview she did say the report was “accurate” when New Orleans Police Information Officer said slurs hurled at her daughter during the attack were “political in nature”).

Burning confirmed her daughter's leg is broken in four places and she has five surgical scars and a steel rod now running from her knee to her ankle with seven screws holding it all in place. She did not fall and break her leg as was reported in the lonely and inaccurate story done by the Associated Press. http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5ikzm03fmGCMbjFoF2UvfkbGhPm2wD9F2GLOG0

Burning also confirmed that the attackers did not rob her daughter or her daughter’s boyfriend.

The attack happened one week ago today as Bautsch and her boyfriend left a $10,000-per-plate Republican fundraiser at Brennan’s Restaurant in the French Quarter where a local group of anarchists, the Iron Rail Collective, were among radical leftist groups that organized a protest outside. Attendees had to run a gauntlet of these aggressive protesters hurling slurs as they left the event. (more details at local news outlet The Hayride http://thehayride.com/2010/04/the-brennans-beatdown-piecing-together-a-story/ )

[A quick transcript, all errors mine.]

SNIP

KELLY: One reporter says that he spoke with the Public Information Officer at the New Orleans Police and that Public Information Officer said that insults of a political nature had been hurled at your daughter and her boyfriend during the attack. Do you have any problem with that report?

BURNING: Honestly this is not a Republican or Democrat problem, this is a problem that a young girl and her boyfriend were attacked and the story hasn’t really come out. And I just want to make sure that these guys are found. That’s the important part of this. There is accuracy in the story. I just think that yes when you do the investigation you do look at the people who were in the area at the time, to be able to bring the right people in for questioning. That’s the really important part.

SNIP

KELLY: We certainly hope so. Della how’s your daughter doing?

BURNING: This was very serious. She has four breaks in her leg. It’s her left leg. She has a rod that goes down the entire center of her leg with seven screws. She has a screw through her entire ankle.

KELLY: Oh, my goodness…

BURNING: For a mother, it’s a lot… you know the recovery is enormous. She has five different scars that she’ll have from this. So this isn’t just something that, you know, that she was pushed down on the ground or something or that she fell. That is not the case.

KELLY: They were stomping her.

BURNING: Joseph and Allee, it was such a terrible thing that, I think that coming out of it, it took a really long time to even be able to make sense of the whole thing. You can understand when something like that happens to you.

KELLY: I know that the report says she broke her leg in five places, he broke his nose, as well…

BURNING: He has a fractured jaw, a broken nose, a black eye…

“They were stomping her.”
*************************

Disgusting, barbaric behavior.

I believed (or wanted to believe) that she may have broken her leg when she fell to the ground during the attack, but that evidently was not the case.

Heard this Mother speak and I hope, dearly that she will travel and go on every TV program on Fox News (doubt anyone else would have her) and tell what happened to her daughter. This needs to be told; louder!

In light of the scum Left; who continually attempts to smear Repubs and a gangster Party; would be laughable if not so dangerous and in truth; threatening.

(And that they are out there 'every frickin day' doing this by voices including Bill Clinton; i.e. those who get huge MSM exposure; is outrageous.

It appears to me that the police honestly want to downplay the political nature of this, in the attempt of getting witnesses to talk and assailants to confess and point out the other. I can’t blame them for that.

This is unbelievable! It may not be a Republican/Democrat thing as the mom said, but in my opinion it most likely is a “left wing nut” thing. My prayers go out to this family and especially the young girl. May the guilty be apprehended and strung up by their toes!

Just got off the phone with GOP Chair Roger Villere. Knew him from back when I was on the State Central Committee. I will have a story up on my blog shortly.

“She refused to discuss whether or not politics were involved”

Why? Have they been told not to? Are they afraid for some reason? What is going on...because obviously something is and they know it, if they all refuse to discuss what was really behind it all.

“Attendees had to run a gauntlet of these aggressive protesters hurling slurs as they left the event.”

The most disturbing aspect here is that aggressive protesters were hurling slurs and no one except the bad guys were video taping. What? Why?

You people don’t realize we are dealing with suppressive terrorists of a different nature. If you don’t own a firearm and live in a state where you can get a license to carry or are legally allowed to carry, you sure as hell had better get one! These people now know they have the ‘establishment’ and the ‘man’ - Obama on their side and they will do anything to you and run if they think you can’t hurt them (they’ll never come at you one-on-one). Better get used to carrying and get good at it - practice, practice, practice.

why is not the jackass in the whine house denouncing this hate filled political crime by his paid underlings? there is a saying you can take an imbecile out of the hood, but cannot take the hood out of the imbecile. (I cleaned it up otherwise would have been banned from FR.) There is a pattern being developed that the thugs through SEIU and other Obamabots do the dirty work, and the imbecile in the White House does nothing but scream racism. remember the cambridge Mass scandal. Everything violent is a part of the Obama agenda.

The left always counts on that with most things they do. They do things so out there that the sheeple ignore it, almost like a UFO sighting. I got that response when I explained Fistgate to people.

That why I went to the Tea Party rally ARMED. My wife and kids wanted to go to the rally and I had to take steps to ensure their safety.

If this had happened to my wife or kids, they'd have to sedate me to keep me from going Dexter on their asses.

I heard about this on Tuesday via the local Shreveport radio station that I get here in East Texas. Evidently, the attackers were overheard saying something to the effect that they were going to “get” them because they had on Palin buttons.

The local announcer was adamant that Gov. Jindal’s office should put out a press release on this dispicable crime (since it was on a member of his staff), but that they didn’t want to do it because of the “on-going police investigation.”

And it's all coming from one side. We are all still largely in denial about this coup.

Funny, I just watched a documentary about the Communist takeover in Czechoslovakia. The communists never had even close to a majority or popular support. They seized power. These asshats have half the ignorant and uninformed country supporting them. Where do you think it is heading? I don't think 98 percent of the Republicans in Congress have as much knowledge about how communists operate as I just picked up just watching a one hour documentary.

Nominated for post of the day. Succinct, accurate and with a breathtakingly clear historical perspective.

You've also said it before, my friend: there's only one way this can end. How much more of this will we endure?

And not a single person got a picture of them? Whenever people are standing around looking for trouble like this you've got to get a couple pictures of them in case they need to be identified later. All it takes is a quick move with your cell phone.

This is one the reasons why I believe that the November elections that all are anticipating will not occur. These monsters are starting to realize that a majority of us aren't getting on their bus to hell. And they've conducted themselves in a manner that says that they don't believe that elecions of any sort matter.

What more do you want, people? War is coming. Worse than war.

There is no such thing as a leftist anarchist. There are plenty of leftists who *think* they are anarchists, but actually they're just violent statists.

I decided yesterday not to attend the armed muster Restore the Constitution Rally in Virginia on Monday. Primarily because of thugs like this. It also falls into line with my general operating schedule which is to never brandish a weapon. I will only pull it into view as I am using it.

With most anarchists, I will not need to do that. I will beat them fiercely. No need for a firearm. Yes, I am combat contact fighting trained and not timid about using it.
