Your Tea Party

Warning: the following links are highly disturbing, showing video of the physical and sexual violence toward women.

First, Juan Cole compares video of the Taliban with Tea Party  supporters beating women in public. Failed state, and failing state.

Next, Jymn at Sister Sage draws attention to the sexual assault of Lauren Valle by Tea Party supporter Mike Pezzano during her head-stomping by Tim Profitt.

I don't think I can finish my breakfast.

Another victim, this time a 60-year-old male, was also assaulted at the event. His assault was considerably less physical than Valle's but emotionally the torture these Tea Party Libertarians exert on others is excruciating. Sign of things to come. It ain't purdy.

If Rand Paul is elected, the US is more fucked up than I ever imagined.

The sad part about all this is, when I saw these video's I immediately assumed he was a republican candidate before I even knew the Senate hopeful's name. I am not sure what is more disturbing, the video's or a group of people trying to live up to a negative stereotype.
