    It was just a little stomp on the head.

    Chimpanzees would have eaten her face off.

    Look at how far we've evolved. ;)

    The Tea Party doesn't like freedom of speech.

    Agreed, the opinions of these whackjobs are starting to be seen as valid, which should not happen.

    Should we also make the blanket assumption that all Democrats act like this? :rolleyes:

    IMO, anyone who goes to a political rally of any sort, supporting the opposite cause deserves the treatment they receive. Why go somewhere with the singular purpose of causing unrest?

    An empty justification if ever I heard one.

    Isn't the whole idea of a rally to demonstrate and voice unrest?

    Let's see- egging a bus and stomping on a woman's head are the same thing? Oh- OK. :rolleyes: Oh- throwing eggs- SCARY.

    I seem to remember you conservatives being quite upset when some gay people yelled at a woman who walked into a Prop 8 protest supporting the law. Hell, all they did was yell at her and you all had a fit, like the devil himself had risen from hell. This woman had her head stomped on and that's OK. I see how this works.

    Where did I make a blanket statement? Are the people attacking this woman Rand Paul supporters? Yes, they are. Are they classless thugs? Yes, they are. I did not say all Rand Paul supporters are like this. There is no blanket statement here.

    I really didn't think anyone would take me up on that offer. Clearly I was wrong.

    How dare Rand Paul attack that woman! Oh wait... oh, I see... your post is meaningless. It was just a few idiots in the crowd. :eek:

    In similar news... any of our resident labor union supporters want to defend this disgusting act? A white male SEIU member/supporter beating a black Tea Partier - Kenneth Gladney?

    You're joking, right? How else do you expect people who support someone who thinks the Civil Rights Act should be repealed to behave?

    (I am not a supporter)


    1) The oaf stepped on her back/shoulder. A technical point, but with all the inflammatory rhetoric on both sides the accurate truth gets blurred. It was, however, a cheap shot.
    2) More concerning was the attempts at dehumanizing her to airhead status with the blonde wig (WHAT was that about)?

    Hardly a cheap shot. The video doesn't show how she got on the ground in the first place. Was she pushed? Knocking your head on concrete like that can cause serious injury.

    YOU'RE joking, right? How else do you expect people to take you seriously if you simply manipulate and redefine your opponents viewpoints? Are you (and a ton of liberal media reporters) a straight-up liar, or just seriously confused on what Rand Paul actually said/believes about one specific part of the Civil Rights Act?

    Oh wait... I think I have a quote of Barack Obama criticizing part of the Civil Rights Act as well... I guess that means he want to repeal the entire thing too.

    One thing you can always count on Lee doing is arguing based on his feelings or heartstrings any any one given point without consideration for things like the constitution and the long-term ramifications of reducing personal liberty.

    Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting. Only someone of a similar disposition would try to defend that.

    In U.A.E. this is accepted behavior-- as long as the woman didn't have any marks.


    but seriously, what the hell were they thinking? Where are these guys when the Phelps people are protesting?

    Are you saying it's okay to beat women?

    I think any comment that doesn't come straight out and say this is disgusting or tries to divert attention is hiding some sort of approval for the scumbags in the video.

    Assault on a woman already tackled to the ground? Stop parsing my words. I wasn't trying to minimize the action.

    Yes he was, which makes no sense at all. Either he actually thinks in the UAE that it's acceptable socially to kick women in the head like the Americans did in this video, or he's just trying to excuse the behaviour in some way because he supports these scumbags.

    I parsed nothing. It sounded exactly like you were minimizing what was done.

    Next time, say what you mean. ;)
