Why didn't the guy being attacked fight back? When someone attacks you aren't you suppose to defend yourself instead of screaming police?

And if he had? The story would be "Tea Party racists assault peaceful black counter-protester." :roll:



Perhaps this happened because anti-Tea Party people have been "fostering an atmosphere of hate and violence" by mischaracterizing the Tea Party as a racist organization... :mrgreen:

The left in America hide behind a facade of non violence and tolerance but the truth is many on the left are intolerant of those who disagree with them. Some of the most violent intolerant hate mongers are on the left.

I agree - some liberals are the most violent when it comes to protests. . . and so are some right wingers. There are violent extremists on all sides.

Not everyone has the gut-reaction to fight back. Odds are, if he did, he would have had his camera inserted elsewhere in the process.

No proof, just an educated guess since tea partiers tend to be conservative.
My logic: why would a conservative attack another conservative? Since when do people from the Green Party or the Socialism Party show up and pick a fight?

But a reality is that even black people will be proud to tell you that the majority of blacks are liberals, and claim this guy is on their side. A friend of mine from elsewhere surely would jump on that.

Statistics also prove that the majority of blacks are Democrats, the remaining waning percent fall into the Green Party and the remaining few after that are sprinkled in with all the other political parties out there. So - the odds that he's a Republican or Libertarian are extremely slim.

No racism there, just a fact. :shrug:

What I don't understand is this dude was out numbered, he should have been pummeled then again your assumption of tea party members of being non the violent is correct as is should be. If the shoe was on the other foot well the tea party members at this protest would have been arrested and charged with a hate crime not to mention being crucified by the main stream media.

Well - then I declare this single black attacking single white incident to be purely racist.

It could be that if we judge only from the video, or the assaulter just could be extremely misinformed and burned by the credit card companies. Although in my world simple assault will do.

I'm being sarcastic - sorry . .. should have used an icon.

I don't feel it's anymore racist than my husband attacking his black instructor years back.

BTW if I was the judge, I would fine the assaulter 200 dollars plus any medical bills incurred by the victim , a public apology and a class in economics....that's all.

Oh yeah - charges should be filed, absolutely.

On all sides of the spectrums violence against political ideologies shouldn't be tolerated. People do have the right to voice their opinions.

I agree but tempers will flair, these issues do get to peoples emotions..this wasn't a hate crime. My point being and kind of off topic but it seems today that we have to jail everyone who breaks the law, I don't think this should be so. This country has come to a point where we have overcrowded jails and prisons for incidents such as these as in the old days a slap or two would do from Uncle Sam.:)

Now freedom of speech should be unhindered..absolutely.

You are probably right, a basic knowledge of interpretating a contract should be required.

i'm sorry, but there simply isn't an equivalency. the massive tea party protest in Washington? zero arrests, they even picked up their own trash. compare that to any large anti-war/anti-Bush rally of the past few years or the anti WTO riots.

Not everyone has the gut-reaction to fight back. Odds are, if he did, he would have had his camera inserted elsewhere in the process.
not fighting back is smarter in that situation; so long as you can get in between the man and your wife. get him on video assaulting a non-violent protestor; and then put that video across America.

The guy did the smart thing: he resisted the urge to strike back. If he had struck back, the story we're reading would have been very different, as I said.

There's no reason to assume he is a coward or a *****. He might be a pretty tough guy, but with enough sense to realize the SMART thing to do was get it all on camera, call the law, and put the video out there for people to see.

He went to the man that hit him where he sat in his car, and on film asked him what was up, told him he was going to call the law, etc.... that took either balls or stupidity, the guy had already demonstrated a willingness to use violence.

When you are being attacked the last thing on your mind should be what the political commentators think...

Although I am no fan of the so call Tea Party people I think this video would have been so much more enjoyable if the guy laid out the attacker.

For one thing this was garbage fighting. The guy throws a wide looping left that the guy should have been able to block with sharp right forearm while his left forearm drove up against his neck. Then he could have yanked the attacker's left shoulder down as drove a knee into that soft little belly. Two knees to the jelly belly then a final right punch to the temporomandibular joint. Or forget the final punch and instead after the two knees give him the strongest wedgie he ever had with the attempt to pull his waistband up to the back of his head.

Yea, I saw that on MSNBC or was it on CNN? Oh, that's right......they probably never covered it since it wasn't an "angry mob" from the right. I must have seen it on Fox. Did the left media cover the attack on the tea party?
