Woman’s head stomped by Paul Supporters in Kentucky *UPDATED*

ASSHOLE IDENTIFIED: Tim Profitt, Rand Paul's Bourbon County coordinator

From the Louisville, Ky, Fox affiliate, who has the entire incident on video– including the faces of her attackers:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB Fox 41) — Outside the Conway-Paul debate, a Rand Paul supporter pulled the woman’s blonde wig off and stomped on her head. She was representing the liberal organization MoveOn.org and claimed to be presenting Paul with an award from RepubliCorp. That’s a group created by MoveOn.org that focuses on what it calls the merger between corporate America and the Republican Party.

“I’m here to present Rand Paul with the ‘Employee of the Month’ award, however his supporters were not very nice to me and my message which is same as everyone else. I got my head stepped on and I have a bit of a headache,” said Lauren Valle, MoveOn.org.

The woman denied police were involved, but right afterwards officers pulled her aside to question her about the incident.

According to WTVQ, an assault charge has been filed, but there have been no arrests.

Blue Bluegrass has photographs of the man in the plaid shirt who is clearly seen holding down Lauren Valle as his co-attacker stomps on her head and neck.

Bring these brutal pigs to justice immediately!

UPDATE: Barefoot and Progressive has identified the stomper as Tim Profitt, Rand Paul’s Bourbon County coordinator. Profitt recently admitted to the attack by way of an “apology” issued to the Associated Press. Of course, he’s claiming the video makes it look “worse than it really was”, as if there is such a thing as a nice way to repeatedly stomp on the head and neck of a woman who’s being held down on the ground. Profitt is not only a monster, he’s a complete and total buffoon, if his statement to the press is any indication.

Tim Profitt, a volunteer with the Republican’s U.S. Senate campaign, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the camera angle made the scuffle Monday night appear worse that it was. He criticized police for not stepping in and says other supporters warned authorities about the activist.

“Gosh, the video of me stomping on a woman’s head and neck wasn’t nearly as bad as it looks, and the police didn’t do their job because they didn’t arrest the woman whose head I was FORCED to stomp!”

TPM has more. Now, who’s the oaf who held her down? Maybe he’ll make a similarly boneheaded statement to the press.

UPDATE NUMBER TWO: The oaf who held Lauren Valle down while Tim Proffit stomped on her head an neck is Lexington Rand/Ron Paul Campaign for Liberty group member Mike Pezzano.

Glenn Beck Brings in an Unhealthy, Unhappy and Sometimes Violent Crowd to DC

***THE ULTIMATE VIDEO***!!!!

The LLL/Town Hell Posse could only be amazed at the high number of unhealthy, unhappy and aggressive people who turned out to help “Restore Honor”.
It’s almost a good thing Glenn Beck didn’t schedule a march, because he’d have been sued by the families of the nearly 100,000 heart attack and stroke victims among the roughly 100,000 who believed they Restored Honor on Saturday.

It was at this rally that the folding camp chair would become symbolic and synonymous with your slackly-rallying Teabagger.

The Unhealthy and Unhappy Made Up for the Majority of the Crowd

Right Wing Watch has their report:
Beck’s Big (Yawn) Event, #1

The Glenn Beck fans on my subway car after today’s rally were a subdued bunch. They didn’t seem energized by having spent time with their idol and many thousands of fellow fans. Why not?
“It was kind of boring,” said one. “It wasn’t what I expected,” said another. “It was good,” one said with an unenthusiastic shrug. “He had some good speakers.” One recalled someone sitting near them grumbling, “I didn’t come all this way for an awards ceremony.”

As shown in the video above there were some people who quietly came out to oppose Beck and friends and met with violence, but they were not the only ones.

Our comrade who is a street journalist was attack by a woman who tried to punch his camera and here is a photo of her:

Or you can view it here

From street journalist:

One of the teabaggers trued to smash my camera, earning a fist-to-fist punch in return. One of her friends tried to call the cops while I rode away laughing-straight to the 20,000 strong Al Sharpton “Reclaim the Dream” counterprotest. Too bad that wasn’t Sarah Palin herself! Rest of the article HERE

Various activists from the left were quietly and politely handing out flyers. We were able to get PDF’s of these flyers:

First Flyer:

Thomas Paine’s “Agrarian Justice” is a little known (by right-wingers, at least) piece where he argues that wealthy property owners should be levied with a heavy estate tax to pay into a fund to support the poor, elderly, and handicapped.

Second Flyer:

The Open Letter to Glenn Beck was written by AK Press after Glenn Beck misrepresented an AK Press book about the Greek riots on his show as being by and about communists using anarchy in their favor, instead of by anarchists and about anarchists.

Al Sharpton Organizes March to Honor Martin Luther King


Al Sharpton and a plethora of guests held a rally at Dunbar High School in Northwest DC on Saturday, where they sought to honor the
legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic march on Washington.
Speakers touched on a number of topics, ranging from labor rights, DC statehood and gains in the civil rights struggle and pointed out that Dr. King’s civil rights work tied varying struggles together so that everyone could succeed. Most speakers decried Glenn Beck’s rally as a cheap stunt and an irrelevant exercise.
The attitude of the rally was best encapsulated by National Action Network’s Chairman W. Franklyn Richardson– “It’s all right with me that they’re at the Mall today–because WE are at the White House!” Sharpton reminded the crowd not to get sucked into confrontations with heckling teabaggers, telling them to smile and say “It’s not about you.
It’s about Dr. King.” The march– which stepped off late– packed eight city blocks as it snaked from Northwest DC to the future site of the Martin Luther King memorial where Martin Luther King III delivered a short speech.

More photos of both rallies HERE and HERE

Discussion about turnout still abounds on the internet, but both rallies pulled strong numbers. Our estimation puts Glenn Beck’s rally around 100,000 and Sharpton’s rally around 50,000.

Maine Republican Party Breaks Into Middle School Classrooms and Destroys Teacher’s Work


From Right Wing Watch and Rawstory, comes this ghastly story of Republicans rifling through a Maine classroom to remove all “objectionable” material, which they then replaced with stickers and notes instructing kids to vote republican.

‘A Republican was here. What gives you the right to propagandize impressionable kids?’

Teachers at a middle school in Portland, Maine, are upset with attendees of a Republican convention who rifled through teachers’ materials in a classroom they were using and reportedly stole materials from the room, replacing it with GOP slogans.

Officials from the Maine Republican Party quickly apologized this week after local news sources reported on an incident at Portland’s King Middle School. Eighth-grade social studies teacher Paul Clifford returned to his classroom following a meeting of the Knox County Republican caucus there to find that his teachers’ materials had been rifled through and a poster outlining the history of the US labor movement was missing, replaced with a bumper sticker that reads, “Working People Vote Republican,” reports the Portland Press-Herald.

What’s more, according to the Bangor Daily News, the Republican operatives also rifled through a closed cardboard box containing copies of the US Constitution, donated by the American Civil Liberties Union. And Clifford found a note nearby that stated, “A Republican was here. What gives you the right to propagandize impressionable kids?”

More Tea Bag Terror

White Powder mailed to NY Congressman Anthony Weiner’s office after racist and threatening letters.
An ABC local NY station is reporting

KEW GARDENS (WABC) — New York Police Department field tests have ruled a white powder sent with a threatening letter to the Queens office of Congressman Anthony Weiner is not hazardous.

Workers reported the discovery in the Kew Gardens Road office just before 1:50 p.m.

Nine people in the office were being checked out, although none were reported to be injured.

Police say the letter was handwritten in block letters and made a threat related to Weiner’s vote on the sweeping federal health care legislation.

Anthony Weiner

It continues on with:

It was the latest in a string of several threats made against Weiner and apparently linked to the health care vote.

He has also received profanity laced letters with anti-Semitic rhetoric. One had a swastika and called him “Schlomo Weiner,” among other things.

When The Onion Hits It Out Of The Ball Park

With such an intense weekend of reporting on Antifa and “Gnatzis”, the LLL collective here thought it would be a good idea to throw in some comedy.

The Onion, a classic in satirical journalism, really hit this one out of the ball park in it’s 110% accuracy:

Area Man Passionate Defender Of What He Imagines Constitution To Be
NOVEMBER 14, 2009 | ISSUE 45•46

Area-Man-R_2_0

Kyle Mortensen would gladly give his life to protect what he says is the Constitution's very clear stance against birth control.

ESCONDIDO, CA—Spurred by an administration he believes to be guilty of numerous transgressions, self-described American patriot Kyle Mortensen, 47, is a vehement defender of ideas he seems to think are enshrined in the U.S. Constitution and principles that brave men have fought and died for solely in his head.

Kyle Mortensen would gladly give his life to protect what he says is the Constitution’s very clear stance against birth control.
“Our very way of life is under siege,” said Mortensen, whose understanding of the Constitution derives not from a close reading of the document but from talk- show pundits, books by television personalities, and the limitless expanse of his own colorful imagination. “It’s time for true Americans to stand up and protect the values that make us who we are.”

According to Mortensen—an otherwise mild-mannered husband, father, and small-business owner—the most serious threat to his fanciful version of the 222- year-old Constitution is the attempt by far-left “traitors” to strip it of its religious foundation.
“Right there in the preamble, the authors make their priorities clear: ‘one nation under God,'” said Mortensen, attributing to the
Constitution a line from the Pledge of Allegiance, which itself did not include any reference to a deity until 1954. “Well, there’s a reason they put that right at the top.”

“Men like Madison and Jefferson were moved by the ideals of Christianity, and wanted the United States to reflect those values as a Christian nation,” continued Mortensen, referring to the “Father of the Constitution,” James Madison, considered by many historians to be an atheist, and Thomas Jefferson, an Enlightenment-era thinker who rejected the divinity of Christ and was in France at the time the document was written. “The words on the page speak for themselves.”

According to sources who have read the nation’s charter, the U.S. Constitution and its 27 amendments do not contain the word “God” or “Christ.”

Mortensen said his admiration for the loose assemblage of vague half-notions he calls the Constitution has only grown over time.

He believes that each detail he has pulled from thin air—from prohibitions on sodomy and flag-burning, to mandatory crackdowns on immigrants, to the right of citizens not to have their hard-earned income confiscated in the form of taxes—has contributed to making it the best framework for governance “since the Ten Commandments.”
“And let’s not forget that when the Constitution was ratified it brought freedom to every single American,” Mortensen said.
Mortensen’s passion for safeguarding the elaborate fantasy world in which his conception of the Constitution resides is greatly respected by his likeminded friends and relatives, many of whom have been known to repeat his unfounded assertions verbatim when angered. Still, some friends and family members remain critical.

“Dad’s great, but listening to all that talk radio has put some weird ideas into his head,” said daughter Samantha, a freshman at Reed College in Portland, OR. “He believes the Constitution allows the government to torture people and ban gay marriage, yet
he doesn’t even know that it guarantees universal health care.”

Mortensen told reporters that he’ll fight until the bitter end for what he roughly supposes the Constitution to be.
He acknowledged, however, that it might already be too late to win the battle.
“The freedoms our Founding Fathers spilled their blood for are vanishing before our eyes,” Mortensen said. “In under a year, a fascist, socialist regime has turned a proud democracy into a totalitarian state that will soon control every facet of American life.”
“Don’t just take my word for it,” Mortensen added. “Try reading a newspaper or watching the news sometime.”
