McCain Supporter Attacked and Mutilated in Pittsburgh. It’s True!
The victim is as a 20 year old Texas College Republican Field Represenative named Ashley Todd.
Her name is Ashley Todd. Her sweet face one eye are badly bruised and there is a large backward “B” engraved on her cheek. Scroll down and see the photo at Hot Air.

I knew things were going to get ugly and so they have. First, journalist Mara Schiffren, and a member of the LiberalHawks listserv group, sent us all to the Drudge Report where we found an unbelievably lurid headline
“Shock: McCain Campaign Volunteer Attacked and Mutilated in Pittsburgh.” What? Another woman physically attacked during the campaign?
A female McCain sign holder was physically attacked in Manhattan by an irate Obama supporter. She has pressed charges.
Well, I’m not gloating but what did people think I meant when I predicted “civil wars” in America? And when I said that media sexism against Senator Hillary Clinton and Governor Sarah Palin was dangerous? The faux-pornographic photos of both female politicians (now sadly joined by presumed naked photos of Senator Obama’s deceased anthropologist mother!) are dangerous to real, living women.
For example, to the pro-McCain demonstrator in Manhattan and to the pro-McCain supporter in Pittsburgh. (See below for an incident that took place in Wisconsin in which a pro-Obama woman was physically attacked. )
Back to the story. Some LiberalHawks wisely counseled caution and patience, the Pittsburgh story might be an elaborate hoax or wildly exaggerated. Within minutes, blogger Fausta Wertz confirmed that a woman who had a McCain-Palin bumper sticker was indeed viciously attacked in Pittsburgh. (She still counseled caution though).
According to The Pittsburgh Channel, what began as a $60.00 robbery at an ATM machine turned ugly when the attacker saw the McCain bumper sticker. He then punched and kicked the 20 year old woman and carved a “B” into her face. snip
The newspaper described the robber as a “dark-skinned black man, 6 feet 4 inches tall, 200 pounds with a medium build, short hair and brown eyes.
And, before I could catch my breath, Pamela-the-Magnificent of Atlas Shrugs just sent us news from Longwood Florida.
A McCain HQ Manager, Roger Coverely’s home has just been shot up. According to Local6.com, “The Republican manager said he is convinced he was targeted because of new McCain signs he added around his home.
‘All I can tell you is this, I have a very good relationship with my neighbors,’ Coverely said. ‘I mow my lawn. The only thing that has changed is I have two McCain signs in my front yard.’
Coverely said he has taken about 300 calls concerning stolen or vandalized McCain signs in the area.
‘It says this campaign is getting vicious,’ Coverely said. ”
Folks: This is not good. American v American in a race war, a class war, a gender war even while jihad has been declared against America?
Forget about all the voting fraud allegations and the chaos at the polls: Do we all have to get guns? Will we need the National Guard to protect us when we vote? Or to walk voters home?
This just in from Atlas Shrugs, “UPDATED: Carl Cameron of FOX is reporting that McCain has called the victim… (who) worked in a McCain phone bank.”
Folks: This is definitely not good. And by the way, I would feel as strongly if physical assaults for poliitical reasons were being perpetrated by McCain supporters. If anyone has such credible stories, please share them with me.
God Bless the Blogosphere! In one second flat, someone commented at the blog. They sent me to a story out of Caledonia, Wisconsin in which a female supporter for Obama was canvassing door-to-door. The “disgruntled male homeowner” started yelling that she, (Nancy Takehara), was “probably with ACORN and he started screaming and raving.” Takehara says that “He grabbed me by the neck…He was pounding on my head and screaming. I was terrified.” The Caledonia police were called.
