Oh the media is so horrified! Poor Lauren Valle had he head stepped on by someone at the recent Rand Paul / Jack Conway debate. It’s too bad we never heard such outrage from the lame stream media when Kenneth Gladney was beaten up for selling flags or when an ObamaCARE protester had their finger bitten off by an ObamaCARE supporter. But there’s more to this whole Lauren Valle story than the media wants to tell you. A video obtained by RedState shows what Valle was doing when the Paul supporters grabbed her. No one chased her around the car, nor was she ever in front of the car.
As you can see in the video, Valle reached in the candidate’s window with her “RepubliCorp” sign and shoved it in his face. Several supporters in Paul shirts have her surrounded at that point, and a man in a suit is the first person to actually intervene physically. It’s hard to tell from the video, but it could be that the man in the suit was with Paul’s security staff. Redstate notes that toward the end of the video, you see several Rand Paul supporters asking a police officer to come intervene. It was actually the Rand Paul supporters who told the head “stomper” to back off. Also, it was Rand Paul supporters who brought the police, contrary to what the media wants to tell you.
Regardless the man who did resort to the “violence” is still an idiot. He must have had a progressive liberal moment in his head that made him react the way he did, since that’s what they do. I guess the only good thing to say about this is that at least Lauren Valle wasn’t seriously hurt.
