To give you an idea of who we're dealing with in the tea party movement, the true believers, here's a couple of responses I received on YouTube in regards to the woman in this video:
"Lauren Valle is a known street walker in Washington D.C. She is known to be infected with STDs and AIDs. Her parents could not be reached for comment as the prison was holding a count at they time they were contacted."
"She is a socialist agiprop from Moveon dot org.. "
Here's a nine minute compilation of clips, including Moveon.org, Rand Paul, and the victim Lauren Valle that pretty much tells the whole story.
Washington Post: The Louisville Courier-Journal reports that a female MoveOn.org supporter was attacked by backers of Kentucky GOP Senate candidate Rand Paul on Monday when she attempted to approach Paul outside his final debate with Democrat Jack Conway in Lexington.
At one point, violence broke out when Lauren Valle of MoveOn.org approached Paul and tried to give him an "employee of the month award" from Republicorp. Republicorp is a fake business MoveOn created to symbolize what it says is the merger of the GOP and business interests controlling political speech. Television video shows Valle, of Washington, D.C., being pushed to the ground and at least one foot stepping down on her head.
In the video from Fox41.com, Valle is forced to the ground by a man as another man holding a Rand Paul sign steps forcefully on her head.
It should be noted, as Thom Hartmann wrote at his site:
I know Glenn Beck irresponsibly throws around the word "Nazi" - he did it again yesterday - to describe liberals. But it's worth noting that Hitler's early supporters, during his beer-hall days when he was running for office, were famous for beating up supporters of his political opponents.
If you read William Shirer's "Rise And Fall of the Third Reich," you'll find eerie parallels - from the authoritarian candidates like Paul and Miller, to the violent rhetoric of Palin and McCain, to the brutal supporters of these candidates - with Hitler's early unpaid volunteer supporters who proudly called themselves "the Brownshirts."
