Just to clarify, it isn’t that all Democrat supports are angry and violent, some are just ill-informed, but with the election now upon us, more and more of them are lashing out. Michelle Malkin is reporting on an incident where two supporters Democrat congressional candidate Tom Perriello went after attendees at an “Americans for Prosperity” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, tearing up signs and calling those there racists.
It isn’t as if we haven’t seen this before. For month the mainstream media have been calling Republicans, Tea Party protesters and anyone else who disagrees with Barack Obama and his policies a racist. Instead of being attacked for disagreeing with the Democrat’s agenda, these incidents appear to be the result of the realization that the era of “Hope and Change” is coming to an end.
Surely this isolated incident can be overlooked, I mean, it isn’t as if these supporters represent the majority of people who vote Democrat right? Well, as one of the rally attendees in the video mentioned, if the roles were reversed, with a Republican supporter attacking Democrats, this would be national news. We saw this with the stomping of Lauren Valle by Tim Profitt at a Rand Paul event. Nevermind that Valle was partly to blame for charging at Paul’s car, the fact that Profitt was a Republican supporter the line turned this minor incident into a national news story. Why is there such favourtism in the media?
This isn’t the only incident of violence though. While reporting on the ‘Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear’, the event Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert had on Saturday, Steven Crowder was assaulted by one of the attendees for saying that he opposed the Obama administration.
I expect there are more incidents like this, but with a media blackout on what Democrats and their supporters are doing, it is unlikely we will get to hear of the bulk of them. As Michelle Malkin stated, expect more of this as ballots and cast and election results come in. I doubt these will be the only incidents of violence as the majority of Americans reject Barack Obama and the Democrats agenda.
