Paul McCartney Attacked in Mexico
comcast ^ | 01 Jun 2010 | JT Ramsay

Posted on 06/01/2010 6:22:13 PM PDT by tlb

Paul McCartney was reportedly "shaken up" by an incident that happened after a concert in Mexico City. Police had to rescue the former Beatle after a mob swarmed his tour bus.

A source says that even McCartney's security detail thought it was just another ho-hum standard giant crowd enveloping his tour bus until things got out of hand as youths started scaling the bus. It escalated from there as they got on the roof of the bus and started jumping up and down.

The mob dispersed when police were dispatched to the scene. McCartney's management is said to be re-evaluating his security detail.

They were just thinking,”why don’t we do it in the road”.

I knew someone would beat me to it! You even included a photo. It only took me a millisecond to think of band on the run after seeing the headline, but you were Johnny on the spot.

I’ve never liked McCartney. While not quite as vocal as other “stars”, he’s still a perfect example of limousine liberal. Looks like he got at least one dose of reality.

Hay-seuss, don’t rush my bus
It’s a bad one, made here in Mesheeeco.
whoah, oh, no
The minute, you think you’ll begin
Remember, Mace gets under your skin,
then it begins, it doesn’t get better.
Better, better, better.
So push `em off, don’t let `em in ..

The default position for entertainers is left wing until they prove otherwise. Ringo will likely not surprise us.

If his bus was headed to the U.S., they better check for stow-aways.

Now, if only Obama would go to Mexico’s version of congress, stand in their gallery and BLAST their people for their lawlessness and shamefulness of racially profiling Sir Paul, I could sleep easy tonight!! Because you know that’s the only reason they attacked him—his skin color is different than theirs!!! /sarc

I used to annoy him every once in a while by telling him that Chapman shot the wrong Beatle.

Remember the joke?

What would it take to get the Beatles reunited again? Three more bullets.

Mexicans don't really know that much about the Beatles. They kept shouting "We want to see g-Ringo!"

It”s “Helter Skelter” in the Mexican Riviera complete with your friendly bus rocking and stomping Mexican Mafia, along with their wacky side-kicks, the local Islamic terrorists.

Woke up, fell out of bed,
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup,
And looking up I noticed I was late.
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke,
and Somebody spoke and I went into a dream
