Rand Paul volunteer tries to give protester a curb-job

From TalkingPointsMemo:

So first, I want to say, contrary to the nature of the upcoming "Rally to Restore Sanity" that Conservativism should be viewed as a mental illness: Sociopathy.

Why? Because they stand for everything we were taught was bad behaviour in kindergarten, when we were taught constructive social skills.

We were taught that sharing was good, and hogging things was bad.
We were taught that you shouldn't be mean to somebody just because they're different from you.
We were taught that you DON'T HIT PEOPLE.

Let alone stomp their heads in.

Conservatives stand for hoarding things to yourself. The rich deserve to hoard everything, and use their wealth to buy even more wealth, which they should also be allowed hoard.
Conservatives stand for being bigoted towards gays, mexicans, the french, and anybody who isn't white (whatever "white" means. According to some conservatives, Arabs are "sand niggers.")
Conservatives also apparently believe that it's okay to give a curb job to somebody, if they're a female or a liberal.

Or both in the instance of Lauren Valle. From TalkingPointsMemo:


As the candidates arrived, a group of Paul supporters pulled a female MoveOn member to the ground and held her there as another Paul supporter stomped on the back of her head and neck.
[snip]
The victim suffered a concussion and multiple sprains in the assault, according to MoveOn's political director Ilyse Hogue.

MoveOn has called on Rand Paul to explicitly condemn the attack, but so far he hasn't.
The man seen stomping the victim in the head has been identified as now-former Paul volunteer Tim Profit
t.


This bearer of a very Capitalist sounding name, Tim Profitt, said to reporters that the camera angle makes the incident appear far worse than it really was."

Yeah... um, also the fact that Lauren Valle suffered several sprains to her neck and a fucking concussion also make it look worse than it really was too, huh?
