Most of the others who have blogged about the assault on FreedomWorks employee and friend Tabitha Hale by a thug hired by the Communications Workers of America to “aggressively demonstrate” in front of FreedomWorks’ offices have focused on the call to violence by Rep. Michael Capuano (D-MA). Allow me to take it a slightly-different direction. First, the video from Tabitha’s phone:
Note what the thug said just before he began his assault on Tabitha. History is replete with examples of those who believe themselves “mentally superior” also believing they have the right and duty to attack those they consider “mentally inferior”. One modern example was evident in Egypt’s Tahrir Square, where CBS correspondent Lara Logan was gang-raped. Another was evident in Madison on Saturday (see especially the second sign).
Update by Shoebox – “Taking a stand for Justice” – I’m hoping Tabitha pressing assault charges on this moron. I can’t wait to see his appreciation of “justice” after this video is played in court. It’s now beyond doubt and discussion that the left’s attempt to paint the tea party as violent is/was nothing more than a projection of themselves on a different political movement. The left has shown themselves to be nothing but thugs and condoning of thuggary.
R&E part 2 (6:58 am 2/24/2011 – steveegg) – Tabitha provides the rest of the story of what happened outside FreedomWorks’ offices yesterday.
