Last night, a group of Rand Paul goons assaulted a Move-On supporter protesting Paul's support of the corporatization of the Republican party. Paul was arriving at his debate with oppponent Jack Conway in Lexington, Kentucky when Lauren Valle approached his with a sign that said "RepubliCorp Employee of the Month". She was either tripped or shoved to the ground by a large middle aged male supporter, who then stomped on her head before being called off by more level headed people in the mob. He screamed at Valle to stay down. Here's the video:
This is exactly what you get after month on month of hate, bigotry, and xenophobia pouring our of right wing media outlets like Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. Racist advertising, abusive speech, and ridiculous taunting by Tea Party candidates like Paul and O'Donnell have made it worse. Such is the condition of our politics today. Reasonable differences of opinion are not allowed. Goons like this clown hover outside of every event, boiling over with hate and looking for trouble. Last night he got it.
Once this guy is identified, he should be arrested and charged with assault. If we don't throw the book at guys like this, it's only going to get worse.
