moonbats du jour

Towards the end of the Palin rally at Elon Univeristy, a sophomore named Andy Milne, was arrested for disorderly conduct for heckling. Palin even made a reference to his outburst. We got very good footage of him being taken out by the police, he was yelling and screaming about his right to have an Obama sign at the rally. He is yelling at our camera, and gets pushed down by cops on the police car.……

An ironic twist to this story is that Brian Wilson interviewed him yesterday on the Strategy Room during the 5 oclock hour. In the interview he said that he was undecided and a former Hillary supporter. In this footage he is a very nice looking college student, and Brian tagged out the interview, “…a bunch of nice students at Elon.”

Classic moonbat. This stuff happens at Republican rallies and when conservative speakers come to college campuses every. single. day. With rare exception there simply is no equivalent behavior on the right. The idea that this is suppressing speech reminds me of my younger brother when we were kids. He'd do something to me, say, smack me in the arm. I'd do it back and then he was mentally, emotionally incapable of processing the idea that we were even. So he'd always have to hit me back. Even though I could beat the living crap out of him I would always have to be the one to put a stop to the conflict. He's all grow'd up now, but I see the same level of cognitive development in the way the left deals with "illegitimate" speech they don't like. Then, of course, there's the fact that this kid posed as an undecided voter just the day before on Fox News. So rare that that happens.

Part deux: Woman who supports McCain attacked in NYC

While the Democrat-leaning media continues to scare undecided voters with bedtime stories about some mythical angry McCain supporter whom nobody has seen, here is a real district attorney’s complaint documenting an unprovoked assault by an enraged Democrat against a McCain volunteer in midtown Manhattan: “Defendant grabbed the sign [informant] was holding, broke the wood stick that was attached to it, and then struck informant in informant’s face thereby causing informant to sustain redness, swelling, and bruising to informant’s face and further causing informant to sustain substantial pain.”

The names have been redacted out of respect for people’s privacy

The overly formal document doesn’t mention this important detail: the victim was a small, quiet, middle-aged woman wearing glasses, and the attacker was a loud, angry man who went into orbit at the mere sight of McCain campaign signs.

The attacker: shielding his face from the camera while talking to the police

On a Monday afternoon, September 15, 2008, three McCain volunteers were holding campaign signs and distributing leaflets on a busy corner of 51st Street and Lexington Avenue. As they were peacefully talking to each other, they were approached by a man who, in the words of the victim, provided the impression of “a rather benign, doughy-looking guy — not a person I would have expected to assault me.”

Full story and more pictures here.

Assault and moonbattery. God bless my fellow New Yorkers. They still haven't forgiven Giuliani for fixing a city thought to be ungovernable because he removed the peep shows and crack whores from Times Square. But at least there are still vigilantes around to go old school Bernie Goetz on middle-aged women wielding McCain signs.

Part Trois: More New Yorkers in action. Less rage-y, but extra batty.

I loves me some street theater. You don't need to be a weatherman to know which way the wind blows. And you don't need to be no stinking psychiatrist to recognize people more interested in fulfilling their own emotional needs than in persuading people through intelligent debate and engagement. A lot of things in the world piss me off but I can't say it has ever occurred to me to make a spectacle of myself over them.
