It turns out that the Kentucky Rand Paul supporter who kicked the female Move On protester wasn’t the first old white guy to beat up on a young woman exercising her First Amendment rights. Turns out he was the second one to do so.

On October 15, Victor Phillips, 72, approached a group of five protesters standing outside the Walla Walla campaign offices of GOP senatorial candidate Dino Rossi. The group were wearing bags over their heads. He went up to one woman, aged 23, pulled the bag off of her head, and when she reflexively lifted her arm in self-defense, he hit her with “force,” according to the sheriff’s deputy who witnessed the entire incident and proceeded to arrest him for assault. According to TPM, Phillips told the police that he had wanted to “take a picture” of the woman.

The state politics correspondent for Rupert Murdoch-owned New York Post today got in a kerfuffle with teabagger Republican/lover of equine-ass fucking/candidate for Governor of the Empire State Carl Paladino.

The irony of a reporter for the conservative rag being called “a bird dog” for Andrew Cuomo was bad enough, but the three minutes of video shot at some random and sad upstate motel lobby is just pathetic. Keep waving those dicks, white men! Nobody gives a shit and the rest of us gotta find a job.

“On an audio tape obtained by The Denver Post, [GOP Senate candidate Ken] Buck was caught muttering ‘will you tell those dumbasses at the Tea Party to stop asking questions about birth certificates while I’m on the camera?’ outside a June 11 event in Crowley… Buck has positioned himself as the Tea Party candidate.” [Denver Post]

Pointing out that Obama is half white and half black isn’t racist … noooo ….

The neoconfederate, neonazi front group Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) announced this month that some 17 states are now filing versions of Arizona’s SB 1070 law which is designed to terrorize non-white Americans and give psychopathic racists an outlet for their depthless rage and hatred for the election of a melanin-enriched president.

The fascist dogs at ALIPAC have been inciting legislators in the most nazi-sympathetic states to file legislation to legalize the arbitrary arrest and terrorism of non-whites.

So far these agents of hate have reportedly provoked sympathetic responses to their satanic cause in Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas and Utah.
