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."

The only thing premeditated in that was Valle’s stunt, and probably her whole victim status. I imagine if someone had as much as looked at her the wrong way she’d be calling her lawyers.

Sort of traumatized? You’re either traumatized or you’re not, lady.

She was lucky the Kentuckians were gentlemen. They could have wedged her open mouth on the curb edge and stomped the back of her head.

In August, 2008 Lauren Valle was detained with four other activists, in Beijing for unveiling an LED banner that spelled out FREE TIBET in English and Chinese in bright blue lights.

Lauren Valle, 31, was born in Falmouth, MA, and has lived in Brooklyn, NY. She studies Eastern Religion and Philosophy at Columbia University. She has supported various organizations working to build a more just and sustainable world. She is taking action for Tibet this summer because she believes that the Olympics represent a unique and critical opportunity for people of conscience to come together on a global level and speak out for human rights.

Sure I’ll get flames here, but I give her SOME credit for actually protesting in the belly of the beast. The vast majority of these activists will only protest in safe, democratic places where they know they’ll get kid-gloves treatment from the Authorities. In the West, such protests are risk-free street theater.

China is another story, however.

She’s a leftist, so of course she’s brain damaged.

How could the attack on her be “premeditated,” unless she had announced that she was working for move-on.org in advance and notified her attackers that she would be there.

I will say this, though... There was no reason for her to be physically assaulted like that. I would expect to see union thugs do that, which of course would be covered up by the media. But because she’s a leftist provocateur, she had the media there with cameras rolling and WANTED to be assaulted, and she got what she wanted.

And the media will be milking this for everything they can. Expect to see that footage over and over again on the alphabet networks, and as part of the 2012 campaigns.

To me it looked like the only thing that was premeditated was her showing up (with a cameraman) to provoke people.

According to Lexington police Lt. Edward Hart, Valle had a sign that read “Republicorp: Employee of the Month”. She was running up to Paul in an attempt to get a photo of herself behind him with the sign.

Reports say Valle was a contract employee of MoveOn.org and had attended several Rand Paul events with the same goal of showing the sign in a picture with him. Valle was wearing a wig at the time of the attempted attack.

Sent to Kentucky from Pennsylvania by MoveOn.org, Paul supporters stopped the woman before she was able to reach him with a true hillbilly beat down.

It is unclear if Paul or his organization are going to pursue stalking or attempted assault charges at this time. Valle could not beat reached about plans for her future visits to Kentucky.

She needs personal, rubber hose-based health care, followed with ongoing out-patient electrocutional therapy.

Dissenting opinion here:

She’s an ass and it playing up her little trauma for all she can but you don’t get to stomp on people’s head unless there is some need to hurt them and there wasn’t.

Is the Washington Post well-read in Kentucky? Or are they just bored to tears with what is happening in the rest of the world?

I notice that they don’t seem all that concerned about the female Rand Paul supporter who had her broken foot stomped by a Conway goon.

I used to vacation and party in Falmouth every summer weekend growing up during my teens, early 20's.
Falmouth used to be fun, The Moonbats now rule that town.

Now that they have succeded in squeezing the life out of Falmouth it looks like the local kooks have turned to other endeavors...

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.

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

BTW, it was an ugly scene but the foot was on her neck and shoulder, not her head.

I expect we will see this more often, agitators hoping to provoke a physical response which can then be used against you; you-tube spreads this stuff like wild-fire along with the straight press.

We’ve all seen the video of people being roughed up by union thugs at various town hall meetings; this just allows them to say “both sides do it” and the guy in the video stepped right into the trap.

Its probably smart to have video cams rolling at any public event, all the time just so there is a complete record of anything that happens. Note in this video that we only see what they did, we don’t see what lead up to it.

I saw the video and well she looks about what you’d expect a moveon.org duckling to look like. Its worth noting that when the person puts his foot on her head another person immediately says “no no no”. So this foot stomper was acting on his own and clearly the Paul people dont support that.
