Head stomping Tea Partiers

  1. profile image0
    Texasbetaposted 7 years ago

    So, after the Rand Paul supporter threw a contrasting activist to the ground, and another stomped on her head...I haven't read anything about it from anyone on here. Am I going to get anything other than the typical "nuh-uh, you do" that I typically get from right wingers? What about Joe Miller have a reporter attacked and held by his hitman security guards for asking a question he didn't want to answer?

      You would get more responses if you said "Head Push" because there was no stomping going on.

      And you are a couple days late, we already talked about this.

      But hey, its a free world see if you can stir up more hatred for those who disagree with you.

      I await patiently for your attack.

        Yeah!  How dare you disagree with the brown shirts?  The teabagger thug was only doing his job.  I'm sure calling it a push rather than a stomp lessened the severity of her concussion.

        The incident was of course covered here.  The consensus reached was that Rush Limbaugh was right; the blonde-wigged socialist agitator was at fault, the freedom fighter who subdued her is a national hero.

        Clear?

          "I'm sure calling it a push rather than a stomp lessened the severity of her concussion."

          Calling it a push was just accurate.

          I'm sure she had already suffered the concussion when she thought her actions would be a good idea.

        Stir up hatred? Dude, your people stomped, yes stomped, on the head of my people, my team. By me addressing it, I am bring up the hate? Come on man. That is as juvenile of a response as I have seen from you. With regards to your head push...I'll throw you on the ground and "push" your face with my foot into the concrete, and you tell me afterwards...push or stomp. I promise you bro...you'll say stomp.

    I've already suggested to Jim that he allow a man who outweighs him by 100 pounds to "push" him "gently" into the ground like that man did.  He won't take me up on it.

    If it was such a gentle "push" I'm not sure why he won't allow himself to be subjected to something similar?

    1. Ron Montgomery profile image60
      Ron Montgomeryposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      "push" is such a harsh term.  It was more of a podiatric suggestion, gently and lovingly applied to the head.

      Don't be haters.

      Like most of what you post that is inaccurate.

      I have accepted the challenge and nobody has stepped up.

      Thats not my fault.

        William R. Wilsonposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        You didn't accept the challenge - you said you wouldn't allow someone to throw you to the ground.  Why not?  All it is a simple push, right?

        1. Jim Hunter profile image59
          Jim Hunterposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          I said I would allow someone to attempt to throw me down.

          That would be a requisite to the head push.

          Its not brain surgery.

            I get pushed to the ground and beat up twice a week in Krav Maga class. I am sick of judo guys throwing me around. Dude, I'll gladly throw you around if ya want. However, I am a nice guy, unlike your tea party thugs...we'll have a mat and gloves. Then again, you could be a jujitsu guy and choke me out in 20 seconds. BTW - you can't be a jujitsu guy. I am sick of those guys bending my bones too. How about a thumb war?

        Oh, Jim, I am quite sure many of us would be very happy to help throw you to the ground and stomp on your shoulder, neck or head if it would help you become a better person.

        What are friends for, right?

        Seriously, I believe that the Tea Party thug may have felt there was danger. He over reacted. Someone yelled at him, it looked to me that he then realized he had gone too far. He looked appropriately embarrassed to me.

        He will likely be sued and he deserves to be, but this stuff can and does happen.  I don't see it as an indictment of the Tea Party.  I see their rank stupidity as quite enough by itself; we sure don't need this as additional evidence.

        I wouldn't go near a TP rally. It bothers me enough to play poker with the ones we have here,  but at least there they mostily keep politics out of it and I usually get to go home with some of their conservative money.

        We have had some flareups though. There is another liberal at another table and I thought he was going to come to blows with someone trashing Obama  one night. Passions run high.. Fortunately both of those two are too old and too out of shape to follow through with anything physical smile

        It was a stupid thing to do. I bet he knows that. Why don't you?

          I'm sure many of you would its just too bad many of you can't.

          But I am always willing to let you try.

          Like you said, what are friends for?

            I dunno, Jim. You look small and wiry in that picture.  Are you trying to tell us you are really big and muscular? 

            It's ok if you are - we'll just bring more volunteers. I'm sure there will be no shortage.  Just tell us how many you think it will take and we  will pad that by 50%.  It will all work out.

            By the way, grass or concrete?  We aim to accommodate.

            Serously - can't you just admit the guy screwed up?

              I am saying I will give you the chance and if you need to bring help thats ok too.

              Bring 10 add 5 and it should work out well.

              As for the guy screwing up, from his apology I would think he thinks he did.

              My reason for posting is clear, nobody had their head stomped.

                I don't know.  Her shoulder was stomped; I can't tell if his heel hit her head.

                Ok, so we need fifteen volunteers.  And pizza. Is there good pizza nearby?

                  I will give you added points for honesty.

                  I'll supply the beer and surgical implements.

                  You bring the pizza.

                    Ok.  Here's the plan. Fifteen of us fly to Texas (I don't know where Jim really is, but I imagine him in Fort Worth).  We need a Federal Grant  (because we are liberals, duh) to pay for the travel expenses.

                    We meet Jim at the airport, wrestle him to the ground and then we elect somebody to step on his head. That could take some time, because (again) we are liberals and we will want recounts.

                    After the head stomping, we help him up and we head for the pizza joint.  There will be some money in the grant for "research" that should cover the beer, but we'll let Jim pay for it anyway (you know why by now, right?). I will pay for the pizza out of my own pocket (yeah, right - i will have lightened Jim's wallet during the stomping).

                    Sounds like a good time. Who wants to write up the grant proposal?

    Well, in fairness, we do hear someone in the crowd yelling at that jerk not to do that. So at least ONE Tea Party supporter has some morals.  No intelligence, of course, but it was nice to see some objection.
