Tea Party Men Are Wimps

How can you justify stepping on a woman's head for any reason?
This just goes to show exactly how OUT OF CONTROL the TEA Party supporters can get.
THIS IS NOT O. K...................................I want to see arrests for assault.

ImJen I have no knowledge of MADHATTER'S political beliefs.<br />
I know him as a friend.<br />
<br />
FoyeierTransform thank you for your comment it's amazing to me that many choose to follow the tripe they dish out.

The most ironical thing is that these ******* claim to be "libertarians" (people believe them too) while rapping out bullshit drivel that conflicts with the very core of that ideology. Libertarianism is about preserving individual rights, not getting your personal views about ************ and race pushed down the oesophagus of unwilling people. It's like Hitler claiming to be a Socialist. What a joke.<br />
<br />
These are the sort of people who think Fox News is accurate and Sarah Palin is a messiah. They are an incorporation of the worst elements of the Republicans, sweetened with vaguely classical liberal ideas (smaller government) that do not stand up to scrutiny. Effing racist clowns.

so you're saying that the Mad Hatter IS a wimp?? >.>

I saw that too penguins.......and demanding her to apologise to him........unbelievable

the video is one of the most sickening things I have seen... He claims he had to put his foot on her head because he had back problems, which presumably made it hard for him to bend down and punch her in the face.

Thanks for the comment IT<br />
There is a disturbing trend among the crazies of the Tea Party and as time passes it only gets worse.<br />
There was a report back in 2008 about Palin being anti government and her wanting to remove Alaska from the Union. From all that I see that they believe........I think they are trying to destroy the federal government and make state rights the only control over the people.<br />
This would take down our militray and replace it with state militias and would make each state a country and weaken America to the point of no return.<br />
The school system plan would produce the type of mindless individuals that the corporations could control with ease and enslavement is the next step to an anti utopian world

I just read that a Tea Party candidate wants to ***** the Dept of Education and privatize schooling so that "children can go to the schools that suits them according to economics and where that child will most likely end up (career-wise)." Another wants to repel that amendment that prevent stores from putting up signs that say "whites only". Another thinks that the 1950's, where 1/5 of Black students and less than 1/2 of White students graduated from high school, were "the best educational times in our country".<br />
<br />
Supporting the Tea Party should be immediate grounds for mandatory admittance to a maximum security psycho ward. Seriously.

something we agree on...finally. even the cultural aspects of china you mention are things i like as well.....not so much the gardens but they do have cool architecture and i like asian women LOL i don't think it will go as quickly as you and i don't think man will cease to exist but i do think the world as we know it will be a thing of the past (probably forbidden to study by the government)

Rick I know of no one that would be happy about that though I do really like some cultural things about China..... smiles<br />
Before you freak out I am talking about gardens and architectural things and some of their furniture.<br />
I don't think this planet will see man lasting more than a decade or two at the present rate of chaos.<br />
<br />
I personally am losing my hope that humans have the time to change as drastically as is needed much less the intelligence to do so.<br />
<br />
Love, Light and Blessings to you my friend,<br />
<br />

America is doomed and so is the rest of the world.....within 20 years we will all be under the control of China (which i know will make some people happy) luckily i will be long gone by then

Capitalism was forced on the American system by big business and corporations and the zombies watched the glittering ads on television and became hooked on a system that is not really friendly to democracy.<br />
Now as the 21st century has been breached the threat to democracy is growing by leaps and bounds.<br />
The decision by the supreme court to allow corporations to buy politicians raised a red flag which was not noticed by Americans for its subversive intent.<br />
This is an extremely dangerous presidence that will ultimately bring America down.

America is doomed.....not because of the politicians but because of the american people. Americans have become fat and lazy.....so many just want to sit around and collect from the government. I see people who are actually PROUD to get their welfare checks, they think they are owed this money. I can remember when it was embarassing to need to resort to welfare or unemployment. Americans have never been willing to hold politicians responsible for their actions since i started paying attention to politics. They have re elected the same group of criminals over and over for 10, 20, 30 or in a few cases 40 years or more! Simply because they either recognize the name or because they ALWAYS vote for the same party. I know you all think i am a hardcore rightwing republican but you would be surprised to know that i did vote for a democrat for house of reps in my district this year. I am far from the republican *** kisser people think i am i have always split my ticket. I do vote primarily republican but its mainly because i live in a state that i have watched die a slow death because of liberal policies over the last 8 years now and also because in general republicans at least seem to care about America and its history while democrats just want to make us Europe west. If i wanted to live in europe i would move to europe, i believe in capitalism and i believe in the constitution if the government would just get the hell out of the way it will work

I do not condone violence from either side but what I am seeingg from the right wing is a move to be sure Obama is a one term president.<br />
They offer little if any logical alternatives to the problems Obama is trying to solve.<br />
They want private companies to lower insurance drug and medical care fees but we have been playing that game for many decades...............it doesn't work. That is way we face millions upon millions of people who have no insurance, no health care and no access to drugs they need.<br />
<br />
You know what.................I long for the good old days when politicians were out for the good of our country and could and would compromise to get there.<br />
Now they are just out for the party they belong to and to hell with America or American citizens.<br />
<br />
I am freaking sick of it............I would love to move out to some other country that is more civilized

I answered a question about this incident and I said it was sad, and the man was an idiot wearing a "Don't tread on Me" button. I got a bit defensive because someone referred to libertarians. I'm sure just as many conservatives were appalled by this as liberals. I'm afraid this particular individual actually thought he was protecting Mr Paul. This is not a matter of politics, but IQ.

I pray to George Soros every night. I've named my son after him. At midnight on Halloween, we will sacrifice a fatted calf to his holy name...anything! As long as he continues to help counterbalance the billions of secret money flowing into Tea Party coffers that have no attribution to source.<br />
<br />
Thank you, John Roberts, for that ruling. Tripping up the oath of office to a democratically elected President showed his hand....He is anti democracy!

This woman was a paid troublemaker.....she was paid by one of those billionaires all of you liberals claim to hate (unless they agree with you) funny......George Soros is a multi billionaire far left wing liberal who created and supports moveon.org in their attempts to cause riots and violence and you liberals think its just peachy but when some conservatives get together to protest the actions they don't like peacefully you hire people to go in and try to stir up trouble.......congratulations it succeeded this time.

Says you.<br />
<br />
You know, on second thought...<br />
<br />
Good move on their part that they brought her down and kept her down so quickly. She could have taken them all with one hand tied behind her back otherwise. WIMPS!

Kenneth was approached by an SEIU representative as Kenneth was handing out “Don’t Tread on Me” flags to other conservatives. The SEIU representative demanded to know why a black man was handing out these flags. The SEIU member used a racial slur against Kenneth, then punched him in the face. Kenneth fell to the ground. Another SEIU member yelled racial epithets at Kenneth as he kicked him in the head and back. Kenneth was also brutally attacked by one other male SEIU member and an unidentified woman. The three men were clearly SEIU members, as they were wearing T-shirts with the SEIU logo.<br />
<br />
Kenneth was beaten badly. One assailant fled on foot; three others were arrested. Kenneth was admitted to St. John’s Mercy Medical Center emergency room, where he was treated for his numerous injuries. Kenneth was merely expressing his freedom of speech by handing out the flags. In fact, he merely asked people as they exited the town hall meeting whether they would like a flag. He in no way provoked any argument or altercation, as evidenced by the fact that three assailants were arrested.<br />
<br />
Just pointing out that its not ONLY conservative tea party members who over react. Violence is a problem on both sides but honestly i see more of it from liberal organizations than i do conservative.

annie there are just as many left wing talkers out there spouting hatred as there are right wing....difference is you think they are being logical and funny when they make fun of right wing politicians but when right wing talkers do the same to left wing politicians it is hate speech. <br />
<br />
I say again this woman was charging through the crowd towards a politician.....if this had been Obama she would have been hurt MUCH worse. He did NOT stomp on her. If he had with his size she would not have been up seconds later having a conversation with the press. I think she was TRYING to provoke violence and she is probably disappointed that it wasn't much worse than it was.

Honey,<br />
<br />
I was born left wing. I don't need cherry kool aid to turn these lips red.

Oh, and Fox speaks for the "movement", does it?<br />
<br />
<br />
Yes. YES IT DOES. Wholeheartedly and with full throats! the Fox mega media with its substantial pocketbook and now political contributions! Fair and balanced my foot! Fox is so far into the workings of the tea party and into the heads of the people in the heartland, telling them that their fellow Americans are their enemies! That's some sick stuff....you have to know...just before the horror went down in Rwanda, talk radio had the populace convinced that violence was the only righteous recourse to tribal conflict....Hammer, Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh the whole crazy bunch, cultivate this never ending us versus them mindset. Sick, sick sick.

Rick,<br />
<br />
I'll venture a guess that you have been reading right wing web sites and have absorbed their spin on the situation....go with your first gut reaction to the fact that there is a girl, in the gutter in a fetal position, with a large man's foot stomping her head...Please, don't rationalize that! Please!<br />
<br />
Freedom of assembly, freedom of speech. Remember? She was doing NOTHING WRONG<br />
<br />
Rand Paul is running for office. These tea party people have all isolated themselves from the press and the public like no other political aspirants in history. Why? What are they hiding? Why all the secrecy? .

the concussion likely occured when her head hit the ground if you know anything about concussions it is not blunt force that causes them it is the rebound. hitting her in the head when she was down would not have caused it. The men who tackled her did the right thing in my opinion. If this had been Obama she very likely would have been shot dead by the secret service if they could have gotten a clear shot. I didn't ask if YOU would do anything i asked if you would expect someone to tackle her if it was Obama. The simple fact is that she would have been. People were not pushing her in the video they were grabbing at her trying to hold her back. I'm sorry but i don't have any sympathy for someone in disguise charging at anyone let alone someone everyone knows is a very polarizing figure that is hated by many on the left. I can guarantee you some of the loving liberals would love to see him dead. This woman is a professional trouble maker. You need to read up on her. She works for moveon.org which does have a history of violence. I'm glad she wasn't hurt any worse but i don't have any sympathy for her at all.

RICK the woman was taken down by three or four people............ the lady suffered a concussion and bruises.<br />
She was not running she wasbeing pushed and her head and shoulders grabbed and forced downward.<br />
If I saw a 5 foot tall conservative woman moving toward the Presidend I would follow and be prepared to act but I could take down a 5 foot tall woman by myself and without harming her.<br />
<br />
The shoulder was where he put his toe then he came down on her head with his heel.<br />
The hospital said it was a concussion.... I think they would know better than we would

Ok and now i will tell you something that is probably going to get me attacked from here to kingdom come but i'm going to say it anyway........i watched the video and i don't see it the way you do.....first of all the guy did NOT "stomp on her head" he put his foot on her shoulder if you look closely to hold her down as someone was shouting for the police. Now lets look at this logically......a person comes running through the crowd wearing a disguise (the wig) towards a man who is absolutely hated by pretty much everyone on the left. the Paul supporters tackle her and hold her down calling for the police....this is logical, for all they knew she might have had a gun or a knife they had know way of knowing for sure, but to put this in perspective, say this had been a conservative woman in a disguise running towards Obama wouldn't you WANT someone to tackle her and hold her down? i certainly would and i don't like Obamas politics at all.

Rick as you know different people use different ways to express things.<br />
When I wrote this piece I was speaking of those men who were involved and when I said it that was what i meant.<br />
You can read that as truth.<br />
Consider it revised in the comments if that makes you feel better.<br />
Once again If I meant all Tea Party men then I would have said ALL

Elf i hate to keep harping on this but the exact quote you use in the title of this story is "Tea party men are wimps" not "These three tea party men are wimps" not "these three men are wimps" you lumped every man who agrees with the tea party into this and that is just wrong and you know it as well as i do. <br />
<br />
I think you should revise that statement.

scooter you may want to read the thread before commenting.....I already addressed the "blanket statement" ob<x>jection earlier..............And.... the lady does have a concussion from the assault

Ah politics and religion! People of all stripes and colors do terrible things in their names. Making blanket statements such as "tea party men are wimps" is as irrational as assaulting the protester. What do you want to bet the she IS wearing a neck brace and is even now filing suit - claiming permanent injuries worth several million dollars.

i agree with liannie except being the all inclusive non discriminatory conservative that i am i say get out and vote for the candidates of your choice but study up on them, if they have a voting record on issues you care about check it out, find out what ideas they support but at the same time ask how they plan to pay for it, and ask how they will make America stronger, safer and create jobs.

I'd like to take this opportunity to remind everybody that election day is Tuesday.<br />
<br />
Stewart is having his rally Sat. Here's hoping he will include a good get out the vote component. This election is so important. It might hand the right wing a big power hand if we don't mobilize now...call your local dem candidate and volunteer to make calls. Recite their sc<x>ripts, they have pro's running the focus groups, now is no time to be politically correct! This is a chess game and we have to use the best piece for now, we should say whatever moves the most of our people out of their doors and into the polling booths.

Oh and yes Elf i have had gay friends (still do if you count the ones here) and at least one of them agrees with me on gay marriage AND he votes republican.....so there :p

check into this...i have heard from someone who did some investigating. they say this woman was bussed in by someone and that she has been charged with a felony in the past in connection with her protesting. Apparently she had threatened to shove a sign down someones throat....doesn't make this level of force right but it does shed some light on the level of anger involved

What gall..............amagence the stomper shows............he has been served with a criminal summons but no word on the other two

Rick I don't have to meet someone to know by their speeches that they are off kilter<br />
I agree with you on abortion.......it should not be used as birth control especially late term abortion.<br />
I believe in a woman's right to choose but am against it as a form of birth control.<br />
<br />
On gays and marriage.......I am torn to some degree........but I think if there is Love then they should have the right to choose how to show it.... but most importantly.........I think there should have been jail time for anyone denying visitation to a partner by prejudiced people just because they are not officially family.............insurance the same.....all things should be equal...no questions asked.<br />
Oh.... and Rick.............I am glad you like gays............<br />

I see that the guy actually thinks the woman owes him an apology!!!<br />
<br />

So now you are insulting my intelligence and saying i have no idea what i believe in? <br />
<br />
Here is what i believe about gay rights.....they should be EQUAL in all things EXCEPT marriage! Not because i don't like gays but because i don't think the government should be "licensing" marriages at all...marriage is a religious ideology and as such the government should keep its nose out of it....now if you want to call it a legal union and give them all of the same rights and penalties currently given to married couples go for it<br />
<br />
as for abortions i am very much against the use of abortion as a form of birth control....there are reasons for abortion i can live with such as rape, ****** and if the life of the mother would be in jeopardy<br />
<br />
the only thing you or anyone else knows about the tea party leaders or its members for that matter is what a corrupt media primarily run by far left liberals wants you to know....unless you have met and talked with all of them

That video just sickened me! Such a "big man" being able to step on a woman's head...

That video was chilling.

Rick....there were 3 of them thus the tag men..........If I meant it the other way I would have said all tea party men<br />
<br />
Puck I said nothing about libertarians.... why so defensive?

And if there WERE a set up I think FOXPAC would have reported it that way -- but even they went with this story. Even they did.

To those conservatives who think the liberals are blowing this out of proportion - you folks do that all the time! You take every little think Obama or any Dem says, twist it for your own purposes and run with it. You do your best to paint every liberal or Dem with the same broad, negative brush.<br />
<br />
In this case, violence against a woman, bringing it to light is not blowing it out of proportion. There is a lot of ugly, hate filled rhetoric coming out of the TP - and no apology for it. This is inexcusable - and an example of the violent tendencies and leanings of the TP. Fascist Brown Shirts. And you compare Obama to Hitler.

Rick there is a fascist feeling in the whole movement...it may be about taxes and so called big government (gay rights and abortion rights excepted...because govt is only Too Big when it isn't doing what they want) to you but to the leaders it is probably about other things like white disenfranchisement, religious dominance and the emasculation of males in a progressive society. Rick people like you on the bottom have no idea what they are promoting at the top and in inner sanctum of the party.

i was going to give more examples of that puck but it isn't worth the time...no matter what i say it won't open any eyes

The difference between what Rick is talking about and this Experience Group is that the things he cites are just talk -- THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED -- JUST AS MANY OF US HAVE PREDICTED IT WOULD!

I knew the progressives would pick this up and run with it. It is ridiculous to say that this in any way reflect the values of the libertarians.<br />
I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't a setup. Progressives have done it before with the window breaking incident in Denver 2008.

but you specified Tea Party men in the title Elf thus you were lumping EVERY man involved in the movement under one heading.....what you should have said was that the men who were doing this were wimps.....or better yet ******** LOL by the way someone said thank goodness cooler heads prevailed......does that mean someone pulled these men off of her? wouldn't they have likely been tea party members as well? Most of the tea party are good people angry with high taxes and low employment and a government that just wants to keep spending money we don't have.

There were 3 men involved in taking down a woman who looked to be maybe 5 feet tall.<br />
One stepped on her knee to immobilize her after the firsthad her around the neck nd shoulders taking her down then the 3rd stomps on her head..............just to let you know Rick.<br />
If you read what I said in the story I didn't say they all did it but that it shows how easily more than one can get rabid really quickly

Ya takes a big man to do that ****

What dose that SOB do to his wife and kids... He's just no dam good............

And i say that i agree with you these ******** need to go to prison and it most likely will happen because no one will come to the defense of someone this stupid. Again my point is you cannot judge an entire movement on the actions of a few idiots. The media has been searching for months now to find some sort of violence at one of these rallies and they finally got it...kudos to them.....hell it wouldn't surprise me if CNN paid the guy to do it LOL

The examples you use....Criminals who bomb cars or say they want to drown retarded children etc, do not do these things at public rallies in support of ballot listed candidates for public office. These thugish men acted as if they were protecting Rand Paul from this little girl.

I don't need to see the video...obviously its wrong to step on anyone! my point still stands....99.9% of the people involved in the tea party would find this sort of thing deplorable. The fact that ONE psycho got through and did something horrible should not condemn an entire movement involving millions of people. I have seen video of liberals fire bombing cars because of things they don't like and i don't judge the entire liberal movement on the actions of these few idiots so why are liberals doing this when a conservative movement gets a few whackos mixed in......i heard a left wing animal rights activist say on CNN a few years ago that if he saw a puppy and a retarded child drowning in a river and could only save one he would save the puppy.....obviously this guy is an idiot......a liberal university professor stated that the people in the world trade center got what they deserved when terrorists flew the planes into the buildings.....did the children in the daycare do something to **** the guy off? my point is simply that when you get millions of people involved in ANY movement there will inevitably be a few who are completely insane!

Rick........ the video is on the other story in this group

I have not seen the video but as a supporter of the Tea Party i think i can safely say that neither i nor any one in a leadership position supports violence against women......anymore than i would think liberals support the new black panthers for threatening white voters, or the new york city politician who stated that he wanted to "slap white people"<br />
<br />
Any movement is capable of having a few nuts when you start having millions of followers

Hi wanderingelf........... good to see you.<br />
Fox is probably working on the lies and a spin on this.<br />
The problem is even if they ran it........ the zombie-like glaze in the eyes of the right wing will only them to see what Fox wants them to see.

Democracy-minded individuals should inundate FOX News with the video in question, and (when they of course refuse to show it) report on the fact that they've received it for all the world to see. That should go a long way toward bringing FOX the discredit they so heartily deserve! The fact that there are violent, corrupt, ignorant thugs intent on taking over the country is no surprise - - the fact that nearly 40% of the American people would be willing to vote for them is extremely disturbing.

LilAnnie, <br />
<br />
I agree with you, and you are so right..Sarah gets them riled up, and ready for the onslaught, now doesn't she..all cutesy, i could scream.. Her barbaric treatment of wolves with helicopter hunting, and the slaughter of the pups in the dens with carbon monoxide, was only a hint of what she would do with people if they get in her way..Oy, i sound nasty..<br />
<br />
chipperchick ;)!

This time he might be wearing a designer suit from Saks Fifth Avenue and spectator pumps. Sarah has the charisma to whip guys like these into a 'defend the constituion by all means necessary!" froth.

Marji, lilAnnie and ChipperChick......... Thank you for your comments.<br />
I see shades of jack boots and goose stepping.<br />
Scary that america could follow a next Hitler

Elf,<br />
<br />
Rand Paul and his thugs are Libertarians, who do not believe in the Bill of Rights, or the Civil rights of anyone save themselves. When he first won as the nominee for the republican party in Kentucky, I recorded his interview on MSNBC with Rachel Maddow, and shared it with my neighbors and children.<br />
<br />
His rantings were pure hatred, and he is truly the face of evil. The video of the stomping incident is only a glimpse of what could be in our futures...?<br />
<br />
Chipperchick ;(

Oh, I saw the video! Can you imagine what would have happened if there was no one around with a camera! That guy would surely have kept stomping on her head. A brute and a thug, exactly the character that has historically emerged from the right wing in hard times, no matter what the country. Part of me is frightened about what we'll have to deal with if they DON'T win a majority. There are thousands of McVeigh's out there.
