Skip to comments.Activist stomped outside Paul-Conway debate (Suspected terrorist tries to approach Rand Paul)
Posted on 10/26/2010 4:02:32 AM PDT by tobyhill
The Louisville Courier-Journal reports that a female MoveOn.org supporter was attacked by backers of Kentucky GOP Senate candidate Rand Paul on Monday when she attempted to approach Paul outside his final debate with Democrat Jack Conway in Lexington.
At one point, violence broke out when Lauren Valle of MoveOn.org approached Paul and tried to give him an "employee of the month award" from Republicorp. Republicorp is a fake business MoveOn created to symbolize what it says is the merger of the GOP and business interests controlling political speech. Television video shows Valle, of Washington, D.C., being pushed to the ground and at least one foot stepping down on her head.

That's exactly what I think happened here, Unk.
The person exhibited suspicious behavior headed towards the candidate.
The guys were yelling for the cops while they had her wrapped up and were taking her to the ground. I think they thought she had a bomb or a gun.
Not knowing if a bomb is going to detonate any second doesn't enhance polite societal behavior, at least not for me.
The assault is not the act of restraint by the first guy who takes her down, It is the foot to the head by the second guy after she was fully controlled and on the sidewalk in a fetal position.
If you don't have a problem with that then give me your address, I'll send you a pretty purple shirt.
Win-Win for the RATS. If she gives him the award they win. If she fails but gets stomped in the process, they win. This is not going to help Rand Paul’s campaign.
I watched the video again, and I stand by my interpretation. It was a shove rather than a stomp. He's a reasonably big guy. If he was trying to hurt her by stomping on her head, I guarantee to you she would not be standing, conscious, and talking immediately after.
Stand back and dont make efforts a bodily contact unless invited to by the public persons party.
Its only reasonable for everyone to be cautious. Especially in this age where violent acts earn a nut instant media fame.
“Had a similar event here in Alaska against Joe Miller, a very very liberal news reporter was trying to get in Joe Millers face, his intent was an altercation of absolutely any sort...”
This appears to be a RAT offensive designed to provoke violent responses from Republican supporters in an attempt to make them look like violent extremists. That would play nicely into their anti-tea party talking points. Don’t fall for it. Keep a level head and a civil tone when dealing with these provacateurs. We’ll kick their butts later.
...is there a video posted? I would like to see it -
Your interpretation was that his foot was on her lower back and it slipped. You have changed your interpretation quite a bit since now you call it a shove.
Lets see....she is a liberal so she is already a) Ugly, and 2) brain damaged.
I can't figure out what more you can do to liberals other than driving a stake through their heart and setting them on fire in the sunlight.
I saw the video this morning and there's no justification for stomping her head down with your boots. Makes you guys look like Obama’s goons. What if she was a Tea Partyier with a costume and a sign. Wouldn't you be outraged?
I dont have a problem with this...
I dont F’ing care if the leftists do...
Honestly, Im game for putting any leftist POS who even thinks about acting stupid in the GD hospital.
It is NOT our fault it had to come to this. but it HAS come to this and its our duty to MAKE them understand that its in their best interests to go the F away. We have always been able to put these people down but have shied away from it because we know that once we start to cross that bridge we have to go all the way. We gave up A LOT to avoid this from happening but the F’ers just kept on pushing... Now they have pushed us onto that bridge and we ARE going to cross it. Enough is enough...
Act like a F’ing IDIOT at your own peril.
Huh? Where did I say I condoned it? I commented on what happens when --- oh, never mind.
Nonsense. The guy stepped on her shoulder, apparently to restrain her, then she squirmed around and ended up with his foot on her head. He immediately moved it back to her shoulder.
But she wasn't, now was she...
BTW did anyone ever go to jail when those union thugs beat that poor guy almost to death for daring to protest clinton?
What about when they beat up that fellow selling his stuff outside a town hall meeting?
What about ANY M'er F'ing time these marxist bastards beat up, intimidated, etc the random conservative? heh....
i think the whole thing was staged by moveon.
That’s what I saw. There was no effort to hurt her.
Not really. I saw him shoving her to the ground with his foot to stop her from trying to get back up.
