Oh ... Really?

One of the reasons I am no longer a Democrat

This is just obscene.

Three-year-old Sophia Parlock cries while seated on the shoulders of her father, Phil Parlock, after having their Bush-Cheney sign torn up by Kerry-Edwards supporters on Thursday, Sept. 16, 2004, at the Tri-State Airport in Huntington, W.Va. Democratic vice presidential candidate John Edwards made a brief stop at the airport as he concluded his two-day bus tour to locations in West Virginia and Ohio. (AP Photo/Randy Snyder)

Kerry Supporters Terrorize 3 year old

On another blog somewhere, someone said in the comments, "Too bad Mom wasn't there to take the girl so Dad could exercise some "free speech" on that punk." Heh ... why leave it to dad? Dad can hang on to the kid ... let Mama avenge her cub. That would be much more painful. If that was my little girl, that dude would be wearing his 'nads as earrings and his pecker as a necklace.

Update: Nevermind ... it seems it is too offensive to a leftie moderator to see this kind of shit. It was posted to the Elections 2004 forum, but was moved to Rick's Place ... where jokes and crap are posted. Bush and GOP bashing is OK, a la Michael Moore, but pictorial evidence of the depravity of the left is not.

Update II: The IUPAT Union (see the thug's t-shirt) has issued an apology for the behavior of one of their members. So much for the DU/Moonbat theory that this was staged. Nice try though.

Further thoughts: With a typical "blame the victim" mentality that infects society today, many are casting blame on the father for taking his daughter to a Kerry rally and voicing his dissent. They are saying that he should have known there would be conflict. OK ... so these folks are saying that he should have expected to encounter violence from Kerry supporters? It's a given that they would attack anyone, including a 3 year old, who is voicing an opinion contrary to theirs? That they only support Freedom of Speech™ when it is in line with their views? OK, I can accept the conclusion that lefties can and should be expected to act like thugs ... that works. Thanks for backing me up on that opinion. But it is a sad indictment on our society.

I am now officially ashamed to have once been a Democrat/liberal ...

An even later update: Please do not waste your time leaving comments and sending email telling me to read the conspiracy theory posted at Rising Hegemon. I have read it. And all the comments as well. Nice try but the CT has been blown sky high. It has been debunked and is nothing more that wild suppositioning. Instead, go read Michelle Malkin.

For the record, I am a member of Protest Warriors. Had I the time and opportunity, I too would be at rallies, protests and other Dem/Lib/Lefty gatherings, like Phil Parlock, to help ensure that a voice from "the other side" gets heard too. Also, like Phil Parlock, I would not be there to start conflict, nor would I expect to be attacked for airing my opinions ... but from the arguments I am hearing from the left, I guess I should expect violence and it would be unwise to take children anywhere near these gatherings because I should expect thuggish behavior ... right? Right? That's what I am hearing from you all ... isn't it?

The guy allegedly assaulting the little girl is in fact her brother. This whole thing is staged.

un-Truth?, what part of "Update II: The IUPAT Union (see the thug's t-shirt) has issued an apology for the behavior of one of their members. So much for the DU/Moonbat theory that this was staged. Nice try though." is too incredibly difficult for you to wrap your feeble little Idiotarian mind around?

Do you take everthing that slides out of the sewer that is DU as "The Truth?!"? Just askin', is all.

Hey I'm a liberal, registered as a democrat this year, and I'm nothing like that :( I'm not a thug :(

Have you seen this pic? (Pic from the other side)
With activity like that, I could never be a republican!

I don't know what was up with the scumball that tore up her sign, but I have seen many more pictures of children being used to campaign for Bush (girl with her hair braided and stood up to make the letter W, etc...)

Don't make up your mind on who to vote for based on a single picture/story.

P.S. Cool site, love the weather widget, already put a copy on my site. Like the layout too! Sure do hope we get this RSS thing fixed soon!

LissaKay's avatar Hi Dave ...
Yes, I have seen that pic ... numerous times. It gets trotted out every time there is a new episode of Dem/leftie/liberal nastiness. Surely there are other examples of naughtiness from the right ... aren't there?

FTR ... I have absconded any affiliation with any political party whatsoever. As a poster at Global Affairs says, I am a radical centrist. And I will be SO glad when this damn election is over!

Amen, sister!
