By now most of you have heard about these types of incidents aimed at intimidating republicans. Remember, it is we who are the intimidators, who disenfranchise voters with scare tactics. Funny how a police car near a polling place is intimidation but random acts of democratic kindness like that depicted below is not. Where is all the outrage and press coverage. Where are Jessie Jackson and the rest of the protectors of our civil rights. Oh, that is right. You only get those if you are on their side. Let these incidents strengthen our resolve to get out in record numbers to vote for George W. Bush.
Thanks to my friend Gene for these items.
This is the kind of thing that John Kerry is bringing this country to:
KERRY JACKBOOTS ON THE RAMPAGE
More than 50 demonstrators supporting Democrat presidential candidate John Kerry stormed a Republican campaign office in West Allis at mid-day today, trespassing, creating a disturbance through the use of a bullhorn in the office and then refusing to leave when asked.
The Chairman of the Republican Party of Wisconsin (RPW) condemned the action by Kerry supporters, and asked the Kerry campaign and the Democrat Party of Wisconsin to do the same. ?Do John Kerry, John Edwards and Wisconsin Democrats really believe this is conduct becoming of a presidential candidate and his campaign?? RPW Chairman Rick Graber asked. ?It is unfortunate that John Kerry’s campaign staff feels the need to engage in such childish and obnoxious behavior.
?Regardless of these scare tactics, President Bush and his campaign will continue to talk about the issues in Wisconsin,? Graber added. ?Let?s hope that someday soon, the John Kerry campaign and his Wisconsin Democrats will put an end to this foolishness.? Graber called the latest incident part of a disturbing trend of criminal conduct by anti-Bush forces in Wisconsin, pointing to an incident in Madison last week in which Bush-Cheney yard signs were stolen from the yards of three homes. The Kerry vandals then used chemicals to burn swastikas into the lawns of the homes, which were within a two-block radius of one another. In addition, reports of stolen, defaced and damaged Bush-Cheney campaign signs are surfacing throughout Wisconsin.
?Our volunteers, from children to the elderly, have every right to feel safe when they are working on behalf of a cause and any candidate they believe in,? Graber commented. ?This type of thuggish, intimidating conduct is absolutely unacceptable. It is time for John Kerry, the Wisconsin Democrat party, and Kerry?s campaign leaders to put a stop to this shameful behavior.?
ORLANDO, Fla. — A group of protestors stormed and then ransacked a Bush-Cheney headquarters building in Orlando, Fla., Tuesday, according to Local 6 News who reported that several people from the group of 100 Orlando protestors face possible assault charges after the group forced their way inside the Republican headquarters office.
While in the building, some of the protestors defaced a poster of President George W. Bush and poured urine on piles of letters in the office, according to the report.
“We told them to leave, that they were breaking the law,” Republican headquarters volunteer Mike Broom reported. Two of the John Kerry supporters received minor injuries when the crowd stormed the building, one Republican volunteer also received injuries.
Most of the protestors it turns out were from the AFL-CIO and were taking part in one of 20 other coordinated protests around the country. A spokesperson with the AFL-CIO told Local 6 News that the Orlando protest did not quite go as planned. A protest similar demonstration was also held at a Bush-Cheney office in Miami at the same approximate time.Follow @onebigdog
