I respectfully disagree! BOTH sides should be bashed for it - repeatedly. The extremists on BOTH sides are what is ripping the country apart. ON the "Progressive" side, you have those who believe that everything should be provided for them at other's expense. On the right wing, you have the extremists who believe that the Church should be the government!
Why can't we just figure out how to get rid of ALL of them, so that those of us who believe in being left alone can go about our business???????

You re welcome.
But in your view, when does a post become "contributive" and what should be in it? i just expressed my oppinion. Am i also going to be bashed or beaten just because of it?
Then my point is proven
No, you can't use one or two people to bash an entire ideology, it's completely faulty logic, you can't blame the belief just because someone takes it too far.
The protesters that they suspect of doing this aren't part of the left/right silliness but were in fact anarchists. www.ainfos.ca...

is this for real? who says, “Let’s get them, they have Palin pins on.” seriously, who says that.
I would be more inclined to believe that the beating took place because they were close aids to Bobby Jindal than Palin supporters. It is not known outside of Louisiana but Jindal is hated much by those on the Louisiana conservative right and most Louisiana Repubs that voted for him. Jindal has many enemies.
“While there were protestors around at that time, we are not aware of any evidence that the individuals involved in the altercation were protestors,” Plotkin said in a statement.

New Orleans police say that the incident began about 10:45 p.m. when a group of three to five men made "derogatory comments" to Bautsch and her boyfriend. When the man described as the male victim "turned toward" the group of men, at least one of the men struck him repeatedly. The woman "fell to the ground and screamed," the news release said.
Police released a description of one suspect, saying he was in his 20s, looked "dirty," and wore his hair in an auburn-colored ponytail. The man was 6 feet, 1 inch tall with a thin build, police said. He wore a light-colored T-shirt and dark pants.
Officers in the area responded and requested EMS assistance. The woman used her purse as a pillow while waiting for help. Once she was in the ambulance, the woman realized her purse was missing, the release said.
"NOPD is investigating the incident and we are refraining from further comment to allow them to fully investigate and ensure justice is done," Plotkin said Monday. "Our prayers are with Allee. She is a strong person and we are sure she will make a speedy recovery."
Police have not yet determined whether any surveillance cameras recorded the incident. While The Times-Picayune has requested a copy of the initial NOPD incident report, the news release stated that the report is not yet available.
