I’m hesitant to jump to conclusions about what actually happened in this kind of made-for-TV publicity stunt. Who were these “Rand Paul supporters” who roughed up MoveOn.org activist Lauren Valle? Why did police question Valle, and not the guys who roughed her up? At any rate, I remember when Alex Jones sicced a mob on Michelle Malkin during a protest at the 2008 Democrat convention in Denver. Malkin did nothing at all to provoke that attack.
That’s wingnut hero Robert Stacy McCain for ya. It reminds me of the husband telling the police his wife got the black eye from running into the door knob.
And why did the police question the victim? Maybe because she was just assaulted?
Valle reported the incident to Lexington police.
Nice way to spin the brutal assault of a female. This is in typical, right-wing fashion and not to be unexpected.
For the record…
The Unhinged Leftist Who Lunged at Rand Paul Is a Paid Activist
Oh well that makes it all ok then.
For the real record, it’s these voices on the right, trying to constantly downplay violent acts like this, that make more people inclined to commit said acts. Even if you are running a simple blog there has to be some responsibility in what we do. Jim Hoft and Robert Stacy McCain, much like their leader’s Michelle Malkin and Rush Limbaugh, don’t know the meaning of the word “responsibility”. They also don’t realize what America is about, and them being given a platform makes our future that much darker.
