Rand Paul Supporters Stomp A Woman In Public. Where Is The GOP Outrage?!?

Ahhh, the fresh scent of hypocrisy.

Ya'll prolly remember last Summer when the Tea Parties were all the rage that some poor Negro named Kenneth Gladney became an overnight hero in Conservative circles. Gladney, who was selling some of those "Don't Tread On Me" flags in front of a rally, got into a small dustup (ie: he tripped over his own feet and fell to the ground) with a couple of people wearing SEIU t-shirts. I reviewed the tape a million times and failed to see any real "confrontation".

Of course none of this matters to TeaBaggers, who happily hoisted Gladney (a guy who wasn't even a Conservative, just an opportunist) on their shoulders as a monument of racial tolerance for enduring such a pummelling at the hands of "SEIU Thugs". Not a week goes by that I don't still hear reference to this incident on Conservative radio, although the charges against the alleged assailants were dropped. No matter, the Conservative message was sent: Liberals and union folks are intolerant thugs who will drop dem' bows on anyone who dares stand in the way of their agenda.

Funny how those same talking heads are dead silent after an incident last night outside the Rand Paul/Jack Conway debate.
Supporters of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul wrestled a liberal protester to the ground and stomped her head against a sidewalk.

Are you concerned with breguet watches and harry winston watches, you are welcome two sites which are having ulysse nardin watches & links of london watch but we guarantee our bad credit credit cards to our customers.

Lauren Valle, of the progressive group MoveOn.org, was wearing a wig and planned to present the Tea Party-backed candidate with a fake award prior to a debate with Democratic candidate Jack Conway Monday night in Lexington, Ky.

Television footage shows Valle's blonde wig being pulled off before she's pinned to the ground. A man then puts his foot down on her head a couple times and presses down on her.

Police said they were not aware of any arrests.
Here's the video.

So, lemme see if I got this right.

A white woman literally gets kicked (albeit not very hard) in the head. Crickets.[1]

A black man trips over his own foot. Miscarriage of justice!!!

Come on, Conservatives, surely life can't be this much of an "Us vs Them" proposition. Really?

When I heard about this incident on the Alan Colmes Show last night, I was convinced this was prolly some ole' typical whining liberal bullsh*t. But watching the tape, come on, the chick literally got kicked in the head. I told ya'll the level of polarized political rhetoric in this country was eventually gonna result in violence. Does anyone believe me now?

Where is the outrage, Conservatives?

Question: Will Conservatives ignore this story since it doesn't fit the "liberals and thugs" narrative?

[1] In all honesty though, driving from DC to Kentucky to confront a Senatorial candidate in this political climate was prolly not the smartest idea. This lady's lucky she just escaped with a headache and some bruises.
