Man With Obama Sign Attacked In San Francisco
CBS ^ | 4/5/11 | BCN

Posted on 04/05/2011 3:47:15 PM PDT by Nachum

SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) – A man who set up a table with political literature and a sign supporting President Obama was attacked in San Francisco’s North Panhandle neighborhood on Monday morning, a police captain said Tuesday.

The attack happened at about 11:30 a.m. Monday in the 1200 block of Fell Street, where the victim, a 29-year-old Daly City man, had set up his table, said Capt. Denis O’Leary of the Police Department’s Park Station.

A man and woman approached the victim, tore one of the signs and shook the table, causing the political literature to fall to the ground.

The suspects also kicked the man in the hand, O’Leary said.

The man and woman, who had dogs with them, fled south on Broderick Street before officers arrived, and haven’t been located, O’Leary said.

The victim said the pair made “no mention of a political affiliation,”

I am almost certain it was a staged attack. The pair who “attacked” the Obama supporter are most likely fellow Obama supporters who are frustrated at the total lack of Tea Party violence.

Hillary supporters - making a Hillary statement of violence against disloyalty.

Period.

"I’m tempted to call BS on this one."

No mention in the article of any witnesses to the alleged event, so I'm thinking this is BS too.

Either this was staged, or it was a couple of lefties angry with Obama for fighting three wars—one more than Bush!

The Anarchists are upset with the Harcore Commies who think Obama isn’t Leftist enough.

It’s like the serial killers being angry at mob hit men, the mentality is so far warped, there is no logical argument.

Asian, as in the word the article used. I am assuming that in San Francisco, Asian does not mean middle-eastern.

The guy with the pro Obama dribble was from........
Daly City?
The good perverts of San Fransissyco always shrugged off Daly City as a “breeder hive” if I remember correctly.
Please,don’t tell me Daly City has gone mainstream out there.

I belive ya. It was a anti war ex Obama fan. Upset to the max with his warlike stance.

Am I spouting BS when it could (not for sure) be something totaly unrelated to politics? Sometimes people beat other people up, maybe the victim knew owed the perps money.

That's what I thought. WHAT republicans in SF? The 2 or three that live there are probably at work and don't have time to "attack" an Obama supporter. BTW why would an "Obama supporter" waste time setting up a booth in 2011 in SF? It's not like he's going to get less than 95% of the vote there anyway.

I remember being in Boston in 2004 and there were the usual suspects, liberal college students canvassing the streets for Kerry. What a waste of time. Did they really think Bush would win in Massachusetts?

It’s SF.

How do they know that at the exact moment the couple reached politely for brochures, a small quake didn’t hit, causing the table to shake and the paper to tear, thereby giving the appearance of an “attack”?

The bit about the dogs is the clue.

They ran away, dragging their owners to safety because animals are sensitive to the slightest quakes.

/so there....:-P
