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.

Intentionally spitting on another person qualifies as “simple assault” under the theory of assault as an attempted or completed battery, the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled

Correct. When someone spits on someone else, there may be harmful & legal consequences to the assailant.

And why would she be so passionate about Planned Parenthood and stuff, I mean you wouldn’t think that at her age…..I mean what would her concern be exactly? …must be that the real plants are hard to come by these days and are getting too expensive for axelturd’s depleted coffers, so he started to bus in medicare age ‘volunteers’ and unload them unto Rep events…wonder what did they promise her, that they would pay for a new denture??….

Yep! Isn’t it a form of assault? Spreading infection diseases to boot.

If it is assault..don’t be surprised when you provoke someone and they punch your damn face in.

bazil9 on August 17, 2012 at 8:08 PM

It is actually a misdemeanor battery. Threatening to have unlawful contact with the body of another is assault. Battery is actually having unlawful contact and there doesn’t have to be flesh-to-flesh contact. If I use a baseball bat to crush your skull, I’ve committed a battery against you, in the very least. The spitter’s saliva is an extension of her person of which she had 100% control (it left her mouth as a result of a willful decision).

I’m not up on WI/Appleton law and I am working on something else right now so I can’t research the matter, but most cities, counties, and/or states have laws/ordinances against spitting on the sidewalk. If that is a crime, then assuming WI has such a law, then undoubtedly spitting on another human being is also.

There should be no charges against the woman, who was spat upon, as she had a right to defend herself. The spitter made the first physical contact and is, therefore, the aggressor. I don’t think that any reasonable prosecutor could argue that a scratch, assuming that there is one, is not disproportionate in response. Had the spittee taken a chair and beat the spitter over the head, that would have been an improper, disproportionate response worthy of charges.

“I’ve never experienced anything like that before, to me it’s unacceptable,” Lefebvre said.

That’s exactly what the woman being spit upon thought.

“Getting upset is one thing, but (Romney supporters) attacked Mary.”

A more appropriate response would have been all Romney supporters hocking a rather large communal loogie right back at poor ol’ Mary Hoglund.

I grew up in the Appleton area. Historically it’s been one of the most conservative cities in Wisconsin — among others, Joe McCarthy came from Appleton.

I would say AP is right. This woman would have absolutely been exposed to plenty of conservative talk in Appleton if she’s lived there for a long time.

Liberals have been getting their butts kicked in Wisconsin for the better part of two years now and it’s about to get worse for them, since Tommy Thompson is going to crush Tammy Baldwin. Meanwhile, Paul Ryan may become VP and the guy running the RNC is from Wisconsin, too. I’m thinking it sucks to be a liberal in Wisconsin these days.

Yeah Nice. I know rwm. I know.

My eyes were opened 4 years ago..I was not much into political activity. Palin was my first rally..I saw it with my own eyes..then watched day after day for years now. I was awake.
I rarely watch any news-period.

My friends and family were surprised by my involvement. Once I saw the truth..I couldn’t/cant let it go.

In my 20′s and early 30′s..I was typical. Worked/played..caught the news here and there. I realized that the media had warped my views or thoughts-knowledge. AND that journalism was pretty much dead. I take a hell of a lot of heat but I am armed now.

What a year ago..in the Villages here in Fl..I cant remember but a post here..OWS fat pig through a glitter bomb at..Mitt,Newt..someone..video was here. They had to drag him across the floor..deadweight. Another example.

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.

TXUS on August 17, 2012 at 8:16 PM

It began in the 60s–lots of riots for many reasons. 1968 was a presidential election year. MFK, Jr., and Bobby Kennedy were assassinated. Then the Left rioted at the Chicago Dem Convention. In the late 60s and early 70s there was violence across the country.

Once the Left got into the halls of power, national violence ebbed for a while. Now it’s back.

This seems to be the new normal of the left. When they are ‘winning’ they can be a pretty civil lot, secure in their superiority complex. Once things start to turn-Watch out.

Case in point, the place I work just made a Spoof video about Obama’s “you didn’t build that” comment. Seems that whenever a lefty watched it, we would hear back the most vile, hateful response. You’d think we killed thier puppy and ate it in front of them. It’s not just that they disagree, it is that they hate, hate, Hate any opinion that does not bow to their way of thinking. Tolerance: Wouldn’t Stalin be proud.

Regarding that second video of Occupiers occupying the Oakland Obama office:

I came THIS CLOSE to attending that Bradley Manning protest march (Thursday at 5pm), but decided against it because it seemed like it would be too small for me to “blend in” and pass unnoticed. Boy, am I glad I made that decision. As the video reveals, there seem to be at most about eight or ten Bradley Manning protesters. The way the march was advertised, they were trying to make it seem like all of the Bay Area would rise up in a massive revolution. Instead: massive gigantic fizzle.

This is the problem with protests this year. No one goes anyone. The Left just seems deflated. Their guy is in office, and yet nothing changed. What’s left to do? Disillusionment runs deep.

As for me, I might as well hang up my camera. Boy, it was easy in the glory days of 2003 when I could wade through 40,000 protesters without anyone giving me a second glance. Now instead I always find myself in some uncomfortable situation with 13 other paranoid moonbats looking askance at anyone who didn’t share a sleeping bag with one of them at the previous night’s squat in an abandoned building.

There is no excuse to punch an old woman, even if she is crazy.

As for me, I might as well hang up my camera. Boy, it was easy in the glory days of 2003 when I could wade through 40,000 protesters without anyone giving me a second glance. Now instead I always find myself in some uncomfortable situation with 13 other paranoid moonbats looking askance at anyone who didn’t share a sleeping bag with one of them at the previous night’s squat in an abandoned building.

Don’t worry, Zombie. If Romney keeps this momentum going and wins, the dark hand of fascism will descend on the Bay area again and they will rise up in great numbers again to denounce this gauche, Hitler-like Republican president.

Liberals, by contrast, can and often do live lives isolated from conservative thought, and their ignorance of our ideas is starting to show.

When you live your life only fed information from Hollywood, the local news/national MSM, and possibly some academia, then you live in a very shallow intellectual pool that your poolmates and pool minders will tell you is very deep.

Ignorance is a lonely and frustrating existence, liberals…. Open your eyes, open your minds, and see that your fellow countrymen have valid and reasonable ideas. You guys are fortunate that we are tolerant as we are, because, if we weren’t, then ya’ll would be in a big sack of hurt.

Where is Cummings and clyburn…. here’s is what proof of being spat upon looks like

cmsinaz on August 18, 2012 at 8:27 AM

Put her in chains

Freeloader on August 18, 2012 at 9:15 AM

I saw this video last night, my arthur work me up, and I just can’t imagine the kind of hate inside you that would make you spit in someones face just over an argument..

But from what I read, it was a private event, with only invited people supposedly, so I wonder how this old bat crashed it?… then to try and trash the small crowd there, “women for Romney”… was she insane?

Or one of those left wingers who lived in a bubble so secure in liberal thought, she just had to waddle in there and give her half cent to those evil gender traitors.

That wildebeest should be charged with a crime and sentenced to wearing a muzzle anytime she goes out in public for the next 90 days. I don’t care how old she is…she doesn’t seem to have learned much in her 83 years.

lynncgb on August 18, 2012 at 9:23 AM

You would hit an 83 year old woman! You just demolished that carefully constructed image of yourself an an alpha male. I’m not surprised. Stupid is stupid.

Basilsbest on August 17, 2012 at 10:22 PM

You truly are an idiot. I never thought I would ever say that about another HA commenter. You are truly a piece of fluffing nutball. Funny though. Fluffer beta boy.

Bmore on August 18, 2012 at 9:52 AM

Real men don’t hit women. We might restrain them if necessary but only a really weak pussy man would ever hit a woman. Only an idiot punk would hit an 83 year old.

Basilsbest on August 17, 2012 at 11:15 PM

Of course they don’t ass. You are an idiot. Old man. Beta man child.

Bmore on August 18, 2012 at 9:53 AM

Three in a row, pretty good mill. ; )

Bmore on August 18, 2012 at 9:59 AM

mark81150 on August 18, 2012 at 9:23 AM

I don’t think she crashed it. It sounded like the other women knew her (calling her by name and such).

Someone should check her senility, though – no one is trying to “shut down” Planned Parenthood (from the government angle, anyway).

Basilsbest on August 17, 2012 at 11:15 PM

There you go again inferring something which is not there. No one said they woulod hit the 83 year old lady. You are really not very smart, thanks for confirming it for all to see. Are you getting senile? Did the woman who was spit on throw a punch/slap back at the 83 year old. Did you watch the video? For you to infer that I would strike an 83 year old elderly woman suits a narrative of me you would like to construct of me. Its based in fallacy, just as much of what you say here is. Sorry old man, you once again mess the point, something you are quite good at. Get a grip on yourself. As I have stated to you previously. I’m no good for you, yet you simply can’t resist, funny! Are your meds being properly administered? You are a funny little man. Thanks for caring Beta Boy. ; )

Bmore on August 18, 2012 at 10:15 AM

Four huh mill? Whats up with that?

Bmore on August 18, 2012 at 10:15 AM

Ryan at the Villages live on fox right now w/ mom Betty.

ted c on August 18, 2012 at 10:28 AM

Not a good turnout for Ryan at The Villages in Florida today. Looks to be maybe 1/4 – 1/2 of what Sarah Palin got in 08.

Thanks for your local context & commentary.
No one has thanked you yet & I find stories of this kind some of the most valuable anywhere.

Badger40 on August 18, 2012 at 10:48 AM

Lock the hag up…

Protester spits in Romney supporter’s face in Wisconsin

Alternate headline had it happened to me.

Teabagging racist plants left hook to protesters teeth.

Basilsbest on August 17, 2012 at 10:22 PM

You assume…

Where did he say that he’d hit a woman?

He said if a Obama fan spit in his face, he didn’t say if it was a woman, you make that leap on your own.

I’ve been spit on, and I was pulled back by my employer to stop me from bending his face inside out..

He’s saying what any of us would, he’d smackdown IF IT HAPPENED TO HIM… not if SHE SPIT ON HIM..

I’ve read Bmore for awhile.. and I have no doubt that you’ve badly misread him, I do not doubt his honor at all.

mark81150 on August 18, 2012 at 11:13 AM

This will only worsen in the days and weeks ahead. Why? Because Obama Presidency has failed. Even stupid and ill-informed people can sense the political realities of Barack Obama and the coming landslide on Nov 6.

Also, be prepared for the same tactic to be applied on election day in strong conservative areas in swing states. The left is in full panic mode.

gumbyandpokey on August 18, 2012 at 10:41 AM

Ryan will do OK. But that crowd in 08 at the Villages was simply enormous for Palin.

I know nobody on our side who could do that in the forseeable future.

Nobody. We may not have to again, but you really have to conclude that Palin WAS a game-changer.

Ryan not so much. But, he is more articulate at a time when we need that nimbleness.

Ryan though has a pretty mediocre voting record.

The problem for us will be keeping Mittens and the GOP dismantling what the Dems and Obama put in.

Does anybody really believe that Mittens will end the Dept. of Eduction?

And if he messes up, we will most certainly have Hillary taking over in 2017.

But, let’s win the damn election first. We can discuss policy later.
