A Republican candidate for the Minnesota House who says he suffered a concussion after being attacked by a man at a St. George Township restaurant last week is pointing the finger at several high-profile Democrats for driving this behavior.
Shane Mekeland told the Star Tribune that he was blindsided Friday night by a man at a restaurant he wouldnt identify.
While I had never met my assailant, the words he yelled at me before he attacked lead me to believe his actions were politically motivated, Mr. Mekeland, who is running for the House in District 15B, wrote in a Facebook post Sunday. When I chose to run for office, I expected to be politically attacked, but never physically...

The American left is an unhinged mob from top to bottom!
“The main base of the Democrats have shifted so far left that well end up being Venezuela. This country would end up being Venezuela. I think a lot of Democrats are going to be voting voting Republican on Nov. 6,”, Trump told reporters at the White House before departing for a law enforcement event in Florida.
Any video of the assault?
Best way to stop this is for voters to fire every possible Democrat candidate at every poltical level. Send them a message there are political lines that we do not cross in the USA and when you try crossing them, you will be punished.
This is what the 2nd ammendment is for.
None listed and checked three articles.
Darn. Would like to see this Democrat arrested and prosecuted.
Amen to that.
"During the days immediately preceding the violence, RCP [The Revolutionary Communist Party] -- which maintained close ties to the L.A. gangs known as the Crips and the Bloods -- had circulated throughout South Central Los Angeles a leaflet featuring a statement by RCP National Spokesman Carl Dix, titled 'It's Right To Rebel' -- a quote popularized by Mao Zedong.
Encouraged by Dix, RCP activists helped lead the riots that would leave 58 people dead, more than 2,300 people injured, some 5,300 buildings burned, and $1 billion in property damaged or destroyed. On the ten-year anniversary of the rioting, RCP member Joseph Veale fondly recalled the violence as 'the most beautiful, the most heroic civil action in the history of the United States.'"
"NEVER FORGET that Maxine Waters embraced Damien Williams, the infamous thug who hurled a chunk of concrete at truck driver Reginald Denny and performed a victory dance over this innocent mans battered body. Maxine Waters even visited Damien Williams mother to offer her support.
Williams was sent to prison on a single felony charge of mayhem, but when his accomplices got off, Waters joined in the celebration. Damien Williams was released a few years later and went on to [commit] murder... Also, no surprise, he was a member of the Crips."
Maxine Waters on the Los Angeles riots of 1992 (Rodney King riots):
"In defense of the people that looted stores and damaged property, [Maxine] Waters said 'If you call it a riot it sounds like it was just a bunch of crazy people who went out and did bad things for no reason. I maintain it was somewhat understandable, if not acceptable. So I call it a rebellion.'
She also said it was 'a spontaneous reaction to a lot of injustice' and 'The anger in my district is righteous. I'm just as angry as they are'. "
Support Free Republic, Folks!
I remember that well, Reginald Denny was damn lucky he survived that attack.
[ NEVER FORGET that Maxine Waters embraced Damien Williams, the infamous thug who hurled a chunk of concrete at truck driver Reginald Denny and performed a victory dance over this innocent mans battered body. Maxine Waters even visited Damien Williams mother to offer her support. ]
I’m sure that got her the “street cred” she needed to be continuously-elected, too.
“She also said it was ‘a spontaneous reaction to a lot of injustice’ and ‘The anger in my district is righteous. I’m just as angry as they are’. “”
Funny thing Maxine, there are no other $4 million homes in your district except yours. Oh, I forgot, you don’t live in your district. You don’t want to live with a bunch of low-life n*xxers do you! You just want them to keep voting for you!
In the late afternoon of April 29, 1992, he had simply loaded up his 18-wheeler and headed down the road, driving for his employer Transit Mixed Concrete. Little did he know that he would drive smack into the middle of an angry mob looking for vengeance.
As his rig crossed Florence, a group of rioters enraged over the Rodney King verdict rushed toward him, pulled him out of the cab and beat him to within an inch of his life.
The attack ended when Damian Monroe Williams took a cinderblock and bashed Dennys skull, fracturing it in 91 places and causing severe brain damage.
The only reason he probably did not die that day was because four South Central residents, Bobby Green, Lei Yuille, Titus Murphy and Terri Barnett, who saw the entire incident on television, raced to the scene.
Despite the risk to their own lives, they grabbed Denny, put him back into his cab and drove him to a nearby hospital where doctors were able to save his life.
Denny had to undergo years of rehabilitative therapy, but his speech and ability to walk were permanently damaged. After the trial of his assailants, he approached their families in a gesture of forgiveness.
He later appeared on the Phil Donahue show to shake hands with one of them, Henry Keith Watson, and finally make peace.
Today, Denny has left Los Angeles behind. TIME made many efforts to contact him through intermediaries but they were unsuccessful; Denny largely avoids the media and rarely speaks about his ordeal.
He works independently as a boat motor mechanic in Lake Havasu, Ariz., where he moved after the 1993 trial of his assailants and an unsuccessful lawsuit against the City of Los Angeles.
Friends say he has gone on with his life and has even begun to drive again. Hes doing better, says one local who knows Denny. Its slow for him, but hes getting better.
A few years after the riots, I saw Reginald Denny in a Penneys store at our Mall, 2 valleys north of LA. He was just shopping and I thought I wonder if that is Denny. When he turned to walk in a different direction, I saw the left side of his skull had a permanent depression. So, yes it was him. I remember after he had recovered from the beating, he was being interviewed on TV and said my daughter sometimes calls me Reginald Denty. He seemed to have a good attitude. I sure dont think I would have a good attitude after that beating. The Dems always feel entitled to act out......they need to be HELD ACCOUNTABLE for their words and actions. We have free speech, but you are not allowed to shout fire in a crowded place.
Typical criminal. Proud of his handiwork.
