. . . a group of Paul supporters pulled a female MoveOn member to the ground and held her there as another Paul supporter stomped on the back of her head and neck.TPM further reports:
According to the Louisville Courier Journal, "Lauren Valle of MoveOn.org approached Paul and tried to give him an "employee of the month award" from Republicorp...a fake business MoveOn created to symbolize what it says is the merger of the GOP and business interests controlling political speech."
In a separate incident, according to the Kentucky Post, "a Conway supporter stepped on the foot of a female Rand supporter, who recently had foot surgery. The woman was wearing a surgical boot, but after the injury, her incision was cut open. Police say she refused medical treatment and also filed an assault report."Trying to be objective here, I guess I think if my incision was cut open, I'd be on my way to the hospital before filing a report.
No arrests or apologies have been made. We're seeing more and more verbal and physical abuse from the right. It's easy to compare this to the earlier isolated incidents that began in 1930s Germany and which ended in the murder of millions of Jews, political prisoners, gays, gypsies, the physically and mentally challenged, and those who were "just different."
TPM has a video HERE and I'm including this one from YouTube.
