FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
UNION THUGS SAVAGELY ATTACK COLLEGE KIDS AT A GRAY DAVIS SPEECH FOR SUPPORTING PROP 54, PROP 54 CAMPAIGN CHAIR WARD CONNERLY DECLARES IT AN OUTRAGE
SACRAMENTO, CALIF.--Ward Connerly, chairman of the Yes on Proposition 54 campaign, angrily denounced the savage attack several men from an unidentified union and carrying No on Prop 54 signs unleashed on six college students.
The students, all members of the California College Republicans and in their early 20s, were peacefully protesting at a voter-registration rally held in south Los Angeles and featuring Governor Gray Davis and former Vice President Al Gore. The students stood respectfully outside and carried Yes on Prop 54 signs.
They were approached by a gang of men, all wearing union shirts and carrying No on Prop 54 signs, who began verbally harassing them and physically intimidating them by holding their signs over those of the students, standing threateningly close and following them when the students tried to retreat to a safe distance. They also shouted down the students with racial slurs and called one of the female students a white-washed Mexican.
Then about 15 of the No on 54 thugs surrounded two girls, hit them in the face and pulled their hair. Another student who tried to rescue the girls got punched in the back. Finally, all of the students managed to escape to their car and drive away, all the while being followed and yelled at by their bullying attackers. Representatives of the media, including the Los Angeles Times, NBC, CBS, ABC and CNN were present, but its unclear how much of the attack they witnessed.
I cannot express enough my disgust and contempt for brutes who express their political beliefs by beating up on anyone, especially young females, said Mr. Connerly. My sympathies go out to the students who had to endure this outrage. They are extremely courageous people who stand up and declare their beliefs, even at risk of bodily harm. Im proud they stand among the supporters of Prop 54.
Prop 54 will bar the state and all local California governments from classifying individuals by race in the areas of public education, employment, contracting and most other government operations. Reasonable exemptions exist for medical research subjects and patients, racial classifications required by federal law or for federal funds and certain activities of law enforcement. The state legislature, by a two-thirds vote and with the governors approval, can vote to exempt any other reasonable area. Also, the Department of Fair Housing and Employment will receive a 10-year sun-setting exemption.
Members of the media wishing for more information on the attack or who want to get in touch with any of the students can do so by contacting the Yes on Prop 54 office. For more information on Prop 54, please go to www.racialprivacy.org.

Democrats will merely play this up as a "non-associated" event. And Health Care Professionals, American Psychologist Institute Members -- will pretend this battery "never happened".
I hope she posts those pictures all over the Internet. Go, Jessica!
Sorta like N.O.W. lobbying to get laws passed to reclassify consensual sex between two consenting adults as "sexual harrassment" due to a disparity in power the man may hold over the woman, and then keeping their collective mouths shut when Slick was fondling, groping, and/or having sex with who knows how many women in the White House.
Hypocrisy is the word.
The first step is to bring video cameras. Just the presence of a running video camera will scare off people who think they can get away with violence (which is exactly what those union thugs thought, and they were probably right, they are probably going to get away with it). And if there is trouble, you have a video record of what happened, which you can show the police.
I witnessed a vehicular assault after an anti-MMM protest a few years back. Some stupid leftist teenagers from the rally (in their SUV, hypocrites) swerved at one of our group--just as a joke, they swerved away so as not to hit him. The cops stopped them, but couldn't do anything about it because nobody had any evidence.
As a union member here in the mid-west, this is really disturbing. I can't wish enough ill-will on to these bastards if the story pans out. Attacking women is just about as low as one can get.
