Video: Protester spits in Romney supporter’s face in Wisconsin

posted at 7:33 pm on August 17, 2012 by Allahpundit

The spitter’s exactly whom you’d expect: An 83-year-old woman. Wait, what?

Over at the Corner, David French theorizes on leftist incivility:

The heartland of American leftism is less intellectually diverse than any large conservative community in the United States. The entire cities of New York, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. are less politically diverse than your average Evangelical megachurch…

It is a truism of American life that unless a conservative turns off all technology, grabs a gun and a dog, and heads for the hills, he will be exposed to an avalanche of liberal thought and ideas — in education, television, movies, and the Internet. Liberals, by contrast, can and often do live lives isolated from conservative thought, and their ignorance of our ideas is starting to show.

Intriguing, but maybe inapposite in this case. Thanks to Scott Walker and Paul Ryan, Wisconsin liberals are getting a snoutful of conservative ideas these days. Or is that the whole point — that reality’s finally crashing in after decades of epistemic closure and the more excitable types can’t quite cope?

Two clips for you, one of the spitting and the other, via Ace and Liberty Chick, of an impromptu tutorial by left-wing protesters for Obama staffers in Oakland on the joys of Occupation.

She should be arrested for assault.

You know, guys, we really shouldn’t be pimping out these stories. You think you are driving a “liberals are crazy” meme, but you’re actually playing into a trap. The MSM narrative will focus on negative public reaction to Romney, and whatever poignant or good things Romney said or did that day will be lost in the shuffle. Better to ignore this silliness and instead focus on wht Romney’s doing.

This wasn’t about “negative public reaction to Romney.”

There may be some truth to what your saying, but I’m guessing that this particular clip will never hit the MSM.

I don’t care how old that woman is, she should be arrested and the victim of her vitriol should press assault charges.

I don’t care how shook up by facing the fact that not everyone agrees with them, or that not everyone is a liberal, these lunatics are or become, they have zero right to assault another person.

Civility be dam*ed. Obviously these people are possessed of questionable coping skills and, so, cannot control themselves. I don’t care what they do, or think, as long as they do it, or think it, OVER THERE.

Did they test the spitter for disease that she may have spread?
They want us to fight back, that is one of their main tactics so they can claim to being the victim.

I think the spitee victim got a shot in at her assailant at least. But I’m saddened that they didn’t frogmarch the spitter out immediately and directly so that she didn’t try to get some final words in. I’d be curious to see if the victim was asked if she wanted to press charges and have the assailant tested for disease (like rabies). I hear that STDs are on the rise for octogenarians.

Oh, is there supposed to be another clip? I only see the one. Maybe do not track is working even harder than I thought.

Liberals are to “Bull Connor” as purity of thought is to purity of race, as intolerance of opposing views is to racial segregation, as looking down their noses at conservatives is to racial prejudice, and accusing the Right of hate is to turning fire hoses on peaceful demonstrators.

changer1701 on August 17, 2012 at 7:58 PM

I happen to work across the street from where this happened and it was an interesting chain of events. Our office–and all offices in this area of Appleton–is just past the Fox River Mall and in an area that can only be described as suburban. Instead of houses, it’s all one story office buildings, and it’s off the beaten track to a point. Meaning it’s not a high traffic area at all except for the people who work over there.

Around 12 or 12:30, we all heard chanting coming in through the walls, which are unfortunately thin. We opened the windows to see roughly 15-17 people standing outside with a bunch of signs, the only one really visible being the largest one that said “Romney ignores the women of the 99%” and chanting idiotic slogans like “Romney hates women” and “Don’t vote Ryan for VP if you want to eat”. They’re not all women, about half are men and there’s actually two young kids there, a boy and a girl, anywhere from the ages of 8-12 I’d say. Personally I’d take my daughter to the zoo or a park on a beautiful Friday afternoon if I wasn’t working but then again, I’m not insane, either.

None of us could figure out why they were there, until I remembered that during the Walker recall, the Walker campaign had set up an office down the street in one of the vacant office buildings. I postulated to my co-workers that perhaps they were setting up a Romney/Ryan headquarters across the street and these idiots were there to protest it (I later found out through the story there is a business there; so many businesses come and go around there it’s hard to keep track).

The cops show up, ultimately three of them, and actually make the protesters walk around on the grass by the curb (which is city owned so it wasn’t our property) instead of just standing there chanting. Even that show of police presence seemed odd to us at the time.

The local media shows up, a few television stations and a radio station, and then a gigantic Romney bus shows up. The protesters of course, kick it into high gear and get their fifteen minutes of fame in front of the cameras and microphones, and I kid you not–as soon as the cameras and microphones disappeared from their faces, almost all of them disperse. There were maybe four left standing outside just talking…and then what’s chronicled in the story must have happened. We did see the 83 year old spitter sitting down in a lawn chair outside (one of the protesters was so large she apparently couldn’t stand, let alone walk around, she had to bring a lawn chair and sit in the shade) being tended to by a fireman, and I heard from one of my co-workers she was ultimately taken away in an ambulance (verified in the story).

Must have been dehydrated after that loogie.

The best part of this story though, at least from my end? The owners of our small company–you know, the ones who didn’t build that–chose today to grill out for all the employees as a show of appreciation for our work this summer. Instead of being able to sit outside and enjoy it, we had to listen to these asshats chant their stupid phrases (though rest assured, we had a good time making fun of them).

However, it inspired some of us–including those who aren’t necessarily involved or interested in politics–to either make a donation to Romney/Ryan or donate our time to the campaign. I have to say it’s one thing to see this behavior on the news or read about it; it’s another to experience it firsthand.

Or is that the whole point — that reality’s finally crashing in after decades of epistemic closure and the more excitable types can’t quite cope?

That’s what I think. I read David French’s post earlier today and thought it was quite good. French had a law school colleague with a Pauline Kael moment:

I was shocked. I was merely making a standard conservative argument — breaking no new ideological ground. “You’ve never heard an argument like that? Where did you go to college?”

“Princeton.”

Then I went to the Paul Rahe post that sparked his. Both are worth the read.

How Hatred Became A Liberal Value

I remember when liberals sported on their automobiles bumper stickers reading, “Hatred is not a Family Value.” Then, back in 2003, in The New Republic, Jonathan Chait wrote an essay explaining why it was legitimate to hate George W. Bush, and the dam burst…. You will not hear liberals arguing for a crackdown on the use of force by animal-rights activists, environmental activists, union thugs, and the Occupy movement. Instead, you will find in them a desperate hankering to pin on the Tea Party responsibility for conduct the Tea-Partiers abhor and a willingness to engage in race-baiting and talk of class warfare on a stunning scale.

The truth is that it is a short distance from the hatred preached by Jonathan Chait to assassination, and five and six years ago there was a great deal of open, public fantasizing along these lines by left liberals.

I think hate was prevalent among the Left long before 2003. It just went mainstream acceptable.

You are assuming a level of control not apparent in the democrat caucus. The crazy moonbat is tied to the “decent moderate BushChimpHiler” democrat. When the DNC decided to go all in on an Alinskyite, Communist, ‘community organizer’, citizen of the world, “messiah” who they refused to be allowed to be vetted after engaging in the happy use of their NEA allies and Media contacts to drive an ever-increasing portion of their lunatic fringe caucus into deeper and deeper delusions of justification to “make noise”….

The heartland of American leftism is less intellectually diverse than any large conservative community in the United States. The entire cities of New York, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. are less politically diverse than your average Evangelical megachurch…

Often times , offenders who have blasphemed in word or deed against political correctness are sentenced to “diversity sensitivity training.”

Any bets on whether our 83 year old will be sentenced to conservative sensitivity training? The Institute for Advanced Conservative Studies, I think, would be a good start.

Perhaps Rush Limbaugh or one of his associate professors will make an on air offer to train her.

Juan is hitting Labolt on the attempts to paint Mitt as a murderer, felon, and slave master. Labolt said Team Barry was just responding to Mitt’s negativity. LOLOLOL. Juan invited Labolt to disavow the latest cancer ad (on behalf of Barry). Ben disavows owning it, but does not apologize for portraying Mitt as an accomplice to murder.

I think hate was prevalent among the Left long before 2003. It just went mainstream acceptable.

INC on August 17, 2012 at 8:00 PM

Actually, it got ramped up big time starting on election day 2008. The community organizer emeritus, AKA Barack Hussein Obama, AKA the Fresh Prince of Bill Ayers, gave reason and acceptability to the hate and the resulting conduct.

This is going to get even more intense over the next six fortnights, and will go Ape Sh!t One in the last weeks, especially when they see the coming landslide defeat of their Light Bringer.

More worried about Biden showing up. He’s got to be angry and frustrated at his treatment by the Obama campaign. And bored out of his gourd. That’s when he gets frisky.

Yep. Nobody puts Joe in a corner.

I’ll update this fall after the first rain.:)

We finally got about two inches yesterday. Too late for the corn but still a relief and it could help the soybean crop.

Old media no longer owns the narrative.

We are Breitbart!

I like how they say that Mary Hogland, the unhinged Obama supporter who did the spitting, was just trying to “ask a question” about Planned Parenthood. As if that woman had come to the event to merely get information and not to cause a disruption.

Next up :
That creep Floyd Corkins was just trying to ask a question about traditional Christian marriage ,
also
that unhinged skinhead was just trying to ask a question about Sikhism
and
that democrat researcher in Aurora CO was just trying to ask a question about the Joker

I don’t know if I could be responsible for my reaction.

Cindy Munford on August 17, 2012 at 8:06 PM

I’m with you Cindy. And I can guarantee the split second it would take me to cold-cock that old bird would be replayed over and over and over on all the national media outlets.

Did you dance around in it?

MontanaMmmm on August 17, 2012 at 8:20 PM

I can’t even begin to express my strong dislike for the act of spitting on another person.
Cindy Munford on August 17, 2012 at 8:06 PM

It’s an expression of defeat, of utter intellectual bankruptcy. The Left’s rationalizations are exhausted and weak and they know it. That’s why they’re freaking out. That’s why things are gonna get even uglier between now and November, as liberals come to realize that the jig is up.

TOGETHER WE THRIVE™

I went to a reunion cum political rally in AZ and got this neat T-shirt, shame a democrat got shot by another democrat to make the event happen, but ultimately it did heal the nation.

So all good I guess.

Did you notice that he got away with saying that Rep. Ryan is holding up the Farm Bill and no one mentioned it passed the House and it is being held up in the Senate. The Democratically controlled Senate.
