Latest on the Bautsch/Brown Attack in New Orleans

The Hayride continues to make the case that the attack on Bobby Jindal's 25-year-old campaign fundraiser Allie Bautsch and her boyfriend Joe Brown after an event at Brennan's last Friday night was politically motivated.

I agree that is by far the most likely scenario. The reports the victims made to police make it clear that when they left the restaurant they were followed and then set-upon by left-wing protestors that had attempted to rush the restaurant much earlier in the evening, and which had chased another person into a cab shortly before the attack on Bautsch and Wilson.

Ambushed from behind by 3-5 thugs, Wilson suffered a concussion, broken nose, and broken jaw. Bautsch had her ankle broken. Both will take months to heal.

High-ranking Democrats and their media allies continue to trumpet the threat of "right wing violence." That call to caution isn't completely unwarranted, as the recent arrest of the Hutaree militia-cult proves. But the simple fact of the matter is that most violence of this sort comes from leftists, and the media spends most of its time finding way to ignore that fact.

Why would you believe it was carried out by left-wing protesters, except that you simply want to believe that? Because the actual police report has the attackers yelling homophobic epithets, and nothing about the victims' political affiliation.

The police aren't backing your story.

Dave why do you have such a hard time being fair about this issue.

Just read the report. Here's one line from it:

"It should be noted that other than making reference to the victims being nicely dressed, along with other observations about their physical appearance, Mr. Brown did not hear them make any other comments."

so its all just happenstance and bad karma that anarcho democrat trouble makers were casing the restaurant, wanting to hurt people during a republican meeting in nawlins?

just an unhappy coincidence?

dave come on you want to use obtuse as a defense that this wasnt what it was.

why? why wont you be fair dave?

Why don't you believe the NOPD when they say that they don't yet know what the motive was? Are they being "unfair"?

"Why don't you believe the NOPD...?" HAHAHAHAHAHA this IS the New Orleans PD you are talking about eh, Dave?
And please do remind me as to when was the last time you heard/read about a mugging where the bad guys (apparently)stayed around to pound on the victims.

no dave im not.

the police's job is not to surmise or to insert comments that didnt happen.

so its neither here nor there to beleive the cops or not beleive them. its not the issue.

the issue instead becomes common sense and occams razor. what is the simplest reason the events unfolded the way they did, not a water flowing up hill exsplanation which is obtuse and unfair.

the republicans held an event, it was publicized there were protesters some of whom displayed violent tendencies. the restaurant was cased and others who were possible republicans threatened.

the shortest and simplest explanation isnt it was a bad nieghborhood, could have happened to anybody,

it is that it was politically motivated dave.

and you know it.

dave im a fair man most of the time, no one is perfect, but ive never welched on a political bet with my left wing friends whether it was cigars over the loss of an election or 10 bucks, or a bottle of jd.
dave if you feel froggy jump.

if you beleive in your core that this cant possibly be politcally motivated. make me a friendly reasonable symbolic bet.

if im wrong and the culprits are found and they end up being run of the mill turds just out to hurt people, the matter of republicanness never entered thier pea sized brains never admit or can be traced to a political motivation then hell I will pony up and say so on my blog and here on CY's comment threads end of discussion I was wrong.

"Bautsch had her ankle broken".

WRONG! Her leg was broken in 4 places, requiring surgery and metal rods being inserted.

From a high-res version of Jack A. Neal’s photo of the scene of the April 9 beating of Joe Brown and Allee Bautsch comes this close-up of Allee.

Still think she was smiling on the scene?

Still think so?
