Sad Step on an opponents head and send a real message!
Rand Paul supporters attack MoveOn activist before debate



It reminds me of someone who takes their two fingers in front of a video camera and pinches someone's head in the foreground, as they're filming. Only this simply represents someone who's wanting to take it a little too far. Like actually using their foot to crush cervical vertebra, or maybe the hope was someone would turn her over for a good old fashioned KKK curb stomp.

She's really lucky that she's not seriously hurt. That mob could have decimated her. But seriously, is this what happens when people make counter protests nowadays? It's utterly ridiculous, as if they're saying, 'We have freedom of speech, so SHUT THE FUCK UP and go away." It's quite hypocratic Sad

Gotta hand it to the lady though, she seemed to handle the aftermath pretty well.

"I just wanted to get out here with a sign, but I got my head stepped on," Valle told Louisville's WDRB-TV. "I have a bit of a headache."

I hope she has a speedy recovery, and maybe a few advils Tongue

I admire her calm. Though that could have been the side effect of a concussion. Angel I hope she went to a doctor right after, just to be safe. I remember the actor Liam Neeson's wife who took a simple fall on the slopes and laughed it off, a couple of years ago. She died, later in the evening from a head injury she didn't even know she'd suffered.

I think our political community here is getting this fired up, because they're just that frustrated. They listen to the likes of Beck, O'Reilly, Hannity, and believe their lies and they act out of fear that not only is it all true, but they're under threat by the "eeeevil dems!".

I don't think the political atmosphere here has been this offensive and violent, or even overtly threatening like those couple of times when men were caught by security for carrying concealed handguns during Obama's public appearances at town hall meetings, last year.
It's scary, to think what the public are going to resort to. But more importantly, it's frightening to think tea party people, that are represented by idiots like foot boy in that video, could get into the Senate.

I picture our freedoms combusting one at a time, and in short order if that happens. Especially if one ever got to the Presidency.

RE: Step on an opponents head and send a real message!
You can imagine my distaste when Christine O'Donnel won the primary in Delaware. Honestly, we need people in office who have common sense and credentials. Nowadays we're just getting people who say the things we want to hear but never back them up. And the last thing I want is a tea bagger in charge of the country. As soon as I see that happening, I'm shipping my ass to Canada. From what I hear around these forums, it's a really nice place Big Grin

Politics in general are begining to wear down on me. I don't really want to be that involved in major discussions, usually because of my lack of knowledge about them, or because I know my opinions aren't very popular. I live in Virginia, so the Republican party is pretty big 'round these here parts Tongue being a more liberal individual tends to shy some people away.

Christine O'Donnell hasn't seen fit to get a job at anytime in her life. Now she moron wants to work for us in Washington? She's an embarrassment to Delaware.

I've decided that there's a limited amount of "outside" stuff that I can let myself choose to give a care about, because there's not a lot I can do to change what takes many participants to screw up.

When it comes politics, I hearken back to that old saying; if you do what you've always done you'll get what you've always gotten.
That is made apparent when people re-elect the good old boys, into what is a good old boy network. Career politicians, are the ruin of this country. And it's nonsense! Keep electing the same suits that legislated the problems in the first place, so they can keep making problems!? How does that make sense ?

And now that the Supreme Court has said what amounts to, Corporations can buy a Senator, what chance does the average working citizen have when we've been taking it in the shorts through the lobbyists, special interests, and corporations that have always had D.C.'s ear and padded their pockets? None!

I won't vote in the mid-terms. I won't vote in 2012. I'm tired of the slogan: If you don't vote don't bitch! It amounts to saying, vote so that you are responsible for electing a reason to bitch !
And that other old excuse people often tout when there's so little to choose from on the ballot: I voted for the lesser of two evils! That just means you're admitting you elected evil to run your future.

For over 234 years this country has been screwed from the core out. The founders knew what they were doing when they set that into motion. So after 2 centuries, we're simply a country more evolved technologically, so we can continue to be abused by the system we pay for so that it screws us for our monies worth, until the day we die. And in the meantime, what we pay into, like social security, we have to beg to get back! When it's our money!
It's like putting cash in a savings account and then having to crawl on your knees across the lobby of the bank and begging a teller to let you have a few dollars of your own money.

Syndicate D.C.
They're no better than any other criminal enterprise, they simply excuse their behavior by writing the laws that make it all legal.

Wow. This makes me proud to be a through-and-through born-and-bred Kentuckian. Dodgy [/sarcasm]

"It does feel like something to be wrong; it feels like being right." -Kathryn Schulz
I am 100% certain that I am wrong about something I am certain about right now. Because even if everything I stand for turns out to be completely true, I was still wrong about being wrong.

Uhm, no offence you guys from the US, but to some of us outside the US the Tea Party looks like a neo-Nazi movement.

The pattern seems to be the same.Uneducated , angry people ; social problems ; economic problems; and to top it all a political party that exploits all their anguish to get ahead.
The violence seems there as well.

I think Nazi references, including Obama as a Hitler caricature, have made the Press since he took office. That would then be a reference intending to implicate the Democratic party as such, since he is the top Dem. in the country.
So it's ironic, if that's the right word, for the Tea Party to now be afforded the label, due to their expressive tactics in contrast and opposition to all things Democrat.

That being said, given your observation, what of the Tea Parties platform do you see as related to the political philosophy afforded as, National Socialism?

It's not their policies per-say but their political tactics. People seem desperate in the US since few have jobs and most get by very hard. Many people did not have access to education and cannot afford it.
It's the exploitation of these simple people , desperate to improve their lives that makes me think of the Nazi party and how it took advantage of the populace in post WW1 Germany.
Also certain members within the Tea Party have resorted to violence and threats but have never been held accountable by their political party.
Maybe I'm just exaggerating.My opinions are based on what I've seen on CNN and TYT.

Also like some republicans they seem to have it out for immigrants and minorities , treating them with scorn.(Based on ads and a few speeches)

And as a last point they seem to be in the right of the political spectrum,from what I've gathered.

RE: Step on an opponents head and send a real message!
Many people around the world say ... Oh, that nasty old Nazi stuff could NEVER happen HERE! We are a gentle people with a long history of freedoms.

If our economy truly collapses and we go deep into a long-lasting economic depression, the demagogues all over the political spectrum will spring up like mushrooms overnight. What happened in Germany in the 1930s could happen most anywhere. Hitler and the Nazis as a metaphor gets overused and is often misapplied, of course. But when times get really bad and stay that way, who knows what could happen? The actions of zealots often embrace violence, as we see with regard to religious fanatics of all brands.
