Stomper agrees an apology is required

Tim Profitt, the genius and former Rand Paul volunteer who stomped on the head and neck of a liberal activist, agrees that an apology is in order:

“I would like for her to apologize to me to be honest with you,” Profitt said.

The police are also to blame.

“Well I’ll just say it, if the police had done what they were supposed to do, it would have never happened,” Profitt said.

The media is also to blame, because as Profitt says, the camera angle made it look worse than it was.

His bad back is also to blame, because you see, “I actually put my foot on her to — I couldn’t bend over because I have issues with my back.”

Will the attacker from the Conway camp also apologize?

“The second occurred after a Conway supporter stepped on the foot of a female Rand supporter, who recently had foot surgery, according to police.

The woman was wearing a surgical boot, but after the injury, her incision was cut open. Police say she refused medical treatment and also filed an assault report.

No arrests were made at the debate broadcast on Kentucky Education Television. No other information is available at this time.”

Or do we just take the word of the Rand person? Let’s remember, the clear standard set up by your side is if there is no video, it did not happen.

And we’ll address you so-called point later that somehow this excuses the first attack or that the victim must apologize.

Ah…Leggie…now you understand the point. Lack of video does not mean that it did not happen. But Lewis did have a video which showed reaction.

So now, since you admit there is no video of this alleged attack, the fact that a Rand supporter claims that a Conway supporter stepped on her leg, possibly intentionally and possibly as an accident in a crowded, does not mean that it did or did not occur. You want us to accept her word that it was a purposeful attack by an alleged Conway supported and to draw a conclusion. You accept this claim willy nilly without analysis but you demand more from Lewis. I’d point out the shameful double standard but the Republicans/Tea Mice are beyond anything shameful and live by double standard.

Personally, I have no clue if she was attacked as claimed. We’ve seen false attacks claimed before by supporters. But you demand an apology from an unknown attacker as a condition to an apology from a Rand supporter caught on tape…. be proud of that stance, right?

what is it you say…oh yea..just sayin

The city of Atlanta’s decision to invest in Hartsfield-Jackson airport, now the world’s largest, has brought a great deal of prosperity to this region.

Atlanta exists in the first place because back in the 1830s, the Georgia Legislature invested in creation of a new railroad line. We’ve grown to the size we have in part because the federal government built Lake Lanier. And etc. etc. etc.

3) Examples:

Jay Bookman is a conservative (a lie)
