The hatred and violence promoted by John McCain and Sarah Palin continues:
Police in Caledonia are investigating the assault of a campaign volunteer as she was canvassing for Senator Barack Obama Saturday afternoon.
In an exclusive interview with 12 News, 58 year-old Nancy Takehara of Chicago says she was going door-to-door when she came across a disgruntled homeowner.
“The next thing I know he’s telling us we’re not his people, we’re probably with ACORN, and he started screaming and raving,” Takehara said. “He grabbed me by the back of the neck. I thought he was going to rip my hair out of my head. He was pounding on my head and screaming. The man terrified me.”
The man eventually stopped and the Caledonia police were called. Takehara was asked if she needed medical assistance, but she was not seriously injured. Instead, she says she was shaken up by the homeowner’s reaction.
These are the very people McCain has said publicly he is “proud” of. I believe it’s time for our nation’s leaders to step up and publicly denounce these actions. McCain’s supporters are turning us into a third world nation and should be ashamed. They are acting as terrorists and maybe we just found a new use for Gitmo.
