MoveOn Supporter Remorseful After Roughing Up Tea Party Member at UofAby Don on Oct. 31, 2010, under Uncategorized
MoveOn and Republicorps member Fred Highton says he regrets initiating a physical altercation with a conservative Tea Partier at a political event at the University of Arizona earlier this month.
“If I’m going to take part in these political events, I need to learn some self-control,” Highton said.
Conservative James Massee released video of Highton grabbing his throat and face after the face-stomping video from a Kentucky rally for Republican Rand Paul.
Here’s the picture from the article by Matthew Boyle of the “Daily Caller.”
“Republicorps.” Now, where have I heard that name before? Oh yeah?
Remember the woman in Kentucky who was restrained by Rand Paul supporters? (Supporters who, yes, crossed the line by restraining her by holding her down on the ground with their feet).
That woman initially attracted attention when she rushed the car carrying Paul and tried to shove a sign inside it.
Needless to say, someone acting in a reckless manner made Paul’s security and supporters quite concerned. When she tried to approach Paul again, the GOP candidate’s restrained her—again, in a way they shouldn’t have and I’m not endorsing.
(Of course, if the woman had behaved decently in the first place—like Tea Partiers uniformly do in public—-none of that would have happened.)
It turns out she was trying to “present” an award to Paul from “Republicorps.” The same Republicorps that Fred Highton represents?
Wonder why these MoveOn.org and Republicorps types are so violent?
