Bush-Hating Lefty Assaults Tea Party Protestors

Fox8 has the details:

A protest in Greensboro turned violent Tuesday when a former candidate for Congress and NC Senate was punched in the face.

Nathan Tabor, a business owner and head of the Forsyth County Republican Party and a former candidate for public office, says he and 25 other people were protesting government bailouts in front of Rep. Mel Watt's (D-N.C.) Greensboro office on Tuesday.

"We were just there to do our constitutional right to have a peaceful protest." Tabor said.

Tabor says they were protesting a proposed amendment that would give companies money to help with rising credit card fees. He says he was videotaping the event when Govenor Spencer, of Greensboro, approached the protest.

"About that time a gentleman walks around the corner and walks into the middle of the crowd saying it's all George W. Bush's fault. It's all Dick Cheney's fault." Tabor said.

The video shows Spencer and at least one protester arguing. Tabor says he stopped recording as the protest began to conclude and walked over to the sidewalk where his wife and 5-year-old daughter were standing.

"As I walked around the corner this gentleman pushed me. And when he pushed me the first time I turned my camera on and brought my camera up. I said please don't push me. And when I said that he slapped my camera." Tabor said. "He pushes me again. In the video you can see my body fall back. And I did not say anything to him, I didn't engage him. I was going to, until he touched me wife."

Tabor says Spencer pushed his wife and he pushed Spencer back. The video shows Spencer then punching Tabor in the face.

Once again, video shows political violence from the left, and the dying liberal media ignores it.

Update: Gateway Pundit Jim Hoft notes that the assailant "is a union organizer, a socialist and a black liberation activist."

He also noted Spencer's car sported a Black Liberation Army sticker. for those of you who aren't familiar with the group, they were a militant Marxist organization that committed bombings, robberies and prison breaks.

If that sounds a bit like like the behavior of Barack Obama's mentors Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn it should; the Weather Underground and BLA worked together in the Brinks Roberry in Nyack New York that gunned down cops and security guards. Dohrn actually did some jail time for her refusal to help in the case, and she was rumored to be a co-conspirator.

It should probably be mentioned that this was going on while Ayers and Dohrn were in Manhattan while a young Barack Obama was at Columbia, attending many of the same protests.

Notice how the piece is written. The first paragraph says the protest "turned violent", not that a protester was attacked. The impression given is that the protesters were violent.

The name of the person who committed the act of violence is not mentioned until paragraph 4. The actual violence, which the tape shows, is not mentioned until paragraph 8. Tabor, the victim is identified in paragraph 2, but it is not mentioned that he was the victim of violence until much further down in the story.

The result is that someone skimming the article quickly would likely think Tabor, the protester, had punched someone. "Tea Party violence", and such.

Yeah, the lsm is right. Those Tea Party protests are so very violent. They do tend to leave out the part where the violence comes from the left, don't they. Or, maybe the lsm thinks it is so normal that it's not news when the leftists in our country get violent in the face of constitutionally protected free speach. After all, the constitution now comes with an "R" rating--not suitable for anyone under 16.

You Tube took down the video. I gues the left can't stand seeing what they do.

This was the green light for everyone who hates the tea party to assualt them at will. These attacks will continue untill they are commonplace and the Media will glorify the attackers. The tea oarty needs a plan but if the attacker wants he can meet me at a rally and pick on someone his own size.

Not all the political violence in Greensboro comes form the left, lest we forget..

By the way, all those murderers were set free by a jury of upstanding Greensboro citizens.

So, will Butler, KKK violence 30 years ago justifies left-wing violence today? I don't know about you, but my parents taught me that two wrongs don't make a right.

Read your history Will the KKK was started by the democrats in the south and had nothing to do with the right wing conservatives.

A previous poster said:

"Not all the political violence in Greensboro comes form the left, lest we forget.."

Actually, that violence ~did~ come from the left.
I remember the news videos very clearly. The reason the KKK scum got off was the Communist Workers Party scum SHOT FIRST. Frankly, I rather wish there'd been no survivors on either side. No such luck, though.

In fairness, both sides had been spoiling for a fight.

this is obama's plan. he and his ilk want a civil war so he can call marshal law and stay president.

we have to stop obama and his democratic operatives in november. be at the polls and vote out these horrible democrats.

All I can say is if that black Obama thug tried assulting me it would the last mistake he ever made. If a white assults a black its called a hate crime. In this case no charges filed. This country will never survive without a Civil War that fixes all the mistakes the last Civil War caused.

And naturally, YouuTubeLeft has pulled the video for "terms of use" violations. I somehow failed to see the notice in their TOU about how videos had to never ever throw the left in a bad light...

Will Butler =>

I lived in Durham at the time which also happened to be the hangout of the CWP. They decided to export their confrontational agenda to G'boro. Which I'm sure PO'd anyone living in G'boro. No CWP, no KKK.

Both groups were armed and fired at each other. The G'boro jury concluded that the KKK were better marksmen than the CWP.
