Rand Paul Backer Stomps on Woman Outside Kentucky Senate Debate

Don’t say you weren’t warned about these people.  From Tom Diemer at AOL’s Politics Daily:

A Rand Paul supporter stomped on the head of a MoveOn.org volunteer Monday night outside of a debate between the Kentucky Senate candidate and his opponent, Jack Conway.

The woman, identified by CNN as Lauren Valle, was pushed to the ground — her blond wig was pulled off in the scuffle — and then held down. One man shouted for the police, but another stepped on Valle’s shoulder and then stomped down, his foot hitting her head. He backed off when someone else told him to stop. Valle stayed on the ground, motionless.

“These supporters were not very nice to me and my message, which is the same as everyone else. I just wanted to get out here with a sign, but I got my head stepped on,” Valle told Louisville’s Fox41. “I have a bit of a headache.”

It was not immediately clear whether anyone would be charged in the incident. There was no sign either candidate — Paul is the Republican nominee; Conway, the Democrat — witnessed the scuffle. Paul’s campaign called the incident “incredibly unfortunate” and said “violence of any kind has no place in our civil discourse and we urge supporters on all sides to be civil to one another.”…

          If he’s better acquainted with Libertarians then, well, libertarians, then the distinction really doesn’t mean much. Sometimes a single capitalized letter makes a world of difference.

    Interesting to read the comments to this article/video. Isn’t it wonderful to know that some people believe violence is ok as long as you are asking for police assistance while doing so ?

    What a pathetic dirty trick. I mean truly pathetic smear stunt. Jesus Christ, what the hell is it about this Rand Paul? The Democrats can’t get anything to stick to this guy, because Conway is such a piece of shit, you can hardly imagine a worse sleazebag professional-politician creature. Lauren Valle you are a silly amateur provocateur. Go home, just go home!

    • Tea baggers liberty for themselves and anything they do and for everyone else “STAY DOWN” or I will stomp on your head again, the message is pretty clear. To be clear four men were involved in the escalating assault, where the offence was a sign that did not agree with their point of view. Also note the breast and groin grope by the other Rand supporter.

    • Funny the news did not run with the story of the Conway supporters attacking the Rand Paul supporter at the same event… the Conway supporters actually drew blood from the Rand Paul supporter…. but none of this actually has anything 2 do with the candidates.

        Yeah. And the media totally missed the big duke out between Godzilla and Jet Jaguar that destroyed the entire metro Tokyo area, too.

        Maybe because it never happened. Nice video link you have posted to it.

    Bob and Other Mr T. This is a softball for you guys. Is it okay to don’t stomp on people’s necks? When said person is half your size? The answer would be no, even if you are on the receiving end of some kind of satirical stunt. As for the odd panicked defense of Rand Paul and the bullshit suggestion the he was only stepping on her shoulder? WTF is the matter with both of you? He stepped in a way that could easily have broken her neck and Paul attracts these scumbags like flies to shit. Deal with it, and please grow the fuck up. The gutless prick who did this is likely to see jail time for aggravated assault.

    Dear poco TOTO, know, I know. Now I am supposed to write how it’s not OK to stomp on this poor little humble lady. The characters who fawn over Paul, may be a bunch of paranoid and confused losers but, Democratic Party is also full of violent stupid jerk-offs. I remember running into plenty of them when I was campaigning for Ralph Nader, so save your sanctimonius BS for someone who don’t know any better! What can I say? This country is in the middle of a public mental health crisis. I am convinced, all Democrats and Republicans are mentally-ill political-cult members. I think “scumbags” come in all political flavors – no shortage of them in any political circle, including independent and 3rd party politics. So now that Lauren Valle has become a victim-martyr of all Kentucky Democrats, is it OK to make the most of this shitshovelling opportunity to smear the political opposition pocoTOTO? What do you think, how do you feel about Democrats exploiting this last minute before the elections – sleazy publicity stunt – no moral ambiguity here, right? Media Matters looking less credible than ever before.

    This video certainly reinforces the importance of getting out the anti-Right Wing vote next week.

    But on a personal level, in addition to the disappointment in the barbaric behaviour of the men in the video and their apologists within these comments, this kind of sets back a novella project I’d been working on.

    I’d hit on a great premise to parody the religious, economic and environmental outlook of the Right Wing. The world’s population hits 7 billion and Heaven is in a quandry. Traditional Kabbalism holds that the human soul is comprised of three elements–instinct, emotion, and intellect, but they have a production bottleneck in the supply of intellect and emotion because God’s busy creating/ruling over the other 44 million universes implied by the recent discovery of String Theory.

    But one “genius” angel, Maloney (better known in LDS circles as “Moroni”) has an innovative idea: Stretch supplies of existing intellect and emotion by adulterating human souls with corresponding bits of animal souls–the same way shitty regulation and accounting standards have allowed shoddy “innovation” in the financial markets while simultaneously explaining the massive die off of animal species and generally animalistic behaviour of Right Wingers.

    But as I said, this news reveals a problem–seems that reality has trumped art again by revealing the Tea Bagger as the lowest form of life.

    Like I said, If Conway wasn’t such a slimy piece of congress-creature trash, there wouldn’t be any need for for the likes of Lauren Valle to provoke the yokels into acting out. Lauren you are an amateur provocateur. Do go home, just go home! Is Conway the best you’ve got for Kentucky, Democrats? Is that the best candidate your party can offer the voters? Media Matters, you no longer matter.
