Stomp Victim Lauren Valle: Attack Was "Premeditated"
The Washington Post ^ | Tuesday, October 26, 2010 | Greg Sargent

Posted on 10/26/2010 7:38:34 PM PDT by kristinn

The MoveOn worker who was attacked by Rand Paul supporters has now spoken out about the assault, claiming she was "injured," "in severe shock," and that she has no doubt that the attack was "premeditated."

She also vowed "further legal action."

Lauren Valle, who was dragged to the ground and had her head stepped on during a scuffle outside last night's Kentucky Senate debate, detailed the attack in a conference call with several reporters. She described it as being at least as bad as the footage suggests.

"My memory of it is sort of that of a traumatized person," she said. "I distinctly remember a blow to my head."

Well, obviously it wasn't much of a blow to the head, if you remember it so clearly.

I mean, she’s a moveon.org worker, not a person.

Exactly. I just don't feel the same pathos for parasites. Funny, that.

I saw the video on Fox today. It was very professional looking, nothing like the ragged,jerky video one usually sees when such events occur.

They usually work in teams with a video camera and the "activist" (moron). They had one at the Beck rally - he walked in with some kind of anti-Beck sign, wandering through the crowd of patriots trying to get a reaction that could be put on film. He got one - someone grabbed his sign and took off. Unfortunately, the guy that took the sign should have ripped it in half and disposed of it rather than taunting the leftist idiot. Good entertainment, but the good guy got arrested.

It's usually best to take a "hands-off" approach with these people, but if you have to defend someone, then do it. The guy that tackled the moveon moron was not out of line. Not sure about the foot on the head. Depends on what the beeotch said about the guy's mom.

“Tim Profitt, Paul’s Bourbon County coordinator, has admitted to being behind the attack, and the Paul campaign has disassociated itself with him.”

True, I wonder?

Maybe they will use it in their headlines on Nov. 3rd.

Something like “The Demonrats were victims of an old fashioned Kentucky Stomping” ...

“but you don’t get to stomp on people’s head unless there is some need to hurt them and there wasn’t.”

Nice try, but it won’t fly. Watch the video.. the man’s foot is on her shoulder, not her head, ever.
Also “stomping” means a continual up and down motion....again that did not happen. The man’s foot is seen on her shoulder, and her movements and his also show him repositioning his foot back on her shoulder.
As a sidenote, she was on Cuntdown with Olberman and was happy and smiling all the while during her “horrific” ordeal. Theatrics 101.

Heres one that needs to be brought up occasionally:
Man charged with assault, profanity-laden tirade
"The warrant states that Stachler headbutted the woman in the forehead and pulled her hair."
"Investigators quote him in the warrant as calling the woman "a right-wing pig".

I wondered if it wasn’t a set up. How do we know those were Rand Paul supporters? I smell a rat.

It wasn't much of a stomp was it? She almost seemed prepared for it. Wonder what the guy who tackled her has to say. He took her down pretty fast almost like it was scripted. Hmm...

She’s probably projecting, as Leftists typically do. This whole setup seems premeditated.

According to your reasoning, she should be allowed to rush up to the President without interference. Are you cool with that?

I just went to YouTube to review the video. What I saw yesterday appeared to have been edited to show the man stepping on her twice, and at first glance, it appeared that he was stepping on her head.

Once I watched the video 4 or 5 times, I realized that she had not been "stomped on the head" as the msm claims, but the guy had stepped on her shoulder, helping to keep her on the ground.

Still, the msm is going to be having a field day with this. That awful Ted Knight impersonator was already putting this on the front burner last night, and I'm sure that it will stay there at least through the election, and probably into the next few election cycles as well.

Oops. Getting back to my original point, I felt that she had been assaulted AFTER the threat posed by her had been averted. After repeated viewings of the footage on YouTube, I changed my mind about the "assault."

The question is, why was she disguised in a blond wig?

Quit whining...you approached a candidate for high office wearing a disguise. Oh, you're a woman? So what. You might have been the next 'Squeaky' or Sara Jane, for all we know...

Somebody's sneaker-clad foot hit you in the head?

You're breaking my heart.

“Lauren Valle, who was dragged to the ground...”

She was NOT dragged to the ground. She admitted she tripped.
