I’m sure it’s old news to some of you by now, but just in case there are 3 people on the planet who haven’t heard about it…
That’s right, boys and girls! Those are Ayn Rand Paul supporters tackling and stomping on a woman outside of KET studios in Lexington, Kentucky. Why? Because she disagreed with them. The woman they attacked is Lauren Valle and she is a member of MoveOn.org
With 5 million members across America — from carpenters to stay-at-home moms to business leaders – we work together to realize the progressive promise of our country. MoveOn is a service — a way for busy but concerned citizens to find their political voice in a system dominated by big money and big media.
I can see why the teabaggers hate them so much. So, Lauren (wearing a blonde wig) goes to give Paul a fake “employee of the month” award to symbolize how he and the members of his party are nothing more than puppets for corporate America. As far I know, she wasn’t violent. So, naturally, they stomped on her. One of the dudes assaulting her in the video is wearing a “Don’t Tread On Me” button. Nice.
And here is what Ayn Rand Paul had to say about the “unusual situation”:
Like I said, nice. “There was a crowd control issue..” YOU’RE A FUCKING LIBERTARIAN!! Way to save the condemnation of violence til the end of your little speech there, Ayn Jr. Seriously, America, are these the kind of people you want running the show? And was it just me, or was there a little smirk playing around on Ayn Jr’s face?
Look, I don’t care who you support or what those against your position say. She could have went up to that dude and call his mother a cock sucking whore and it STILL would not justify that kind of violent behavior. I hope that dude gets arrested and made an example of.
Even the tacky blonde wig doesn’t justify what those ‘people’ did to Lauren. I say we kick them out of the human race. Whattya say?
