Joe Brown and Allee Bautsch
Allee Bautsch, chief campaign fundraiser for Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, and her boyfriend Joe Brown, were savagely beaten Friday night in New Orleans after leaving a Republican party fundraising dinner by a group of thugs who reportedly targeted the couple because they were wearing Sarah Palin pins.
Bautch's leg was broken and Brown incurred a broken jaw and nose as well as a concussion.
The Hayride reports that a source who visited Bautsch at the hospital the day after the attack says they were told the couple was attacked for wearing Palin buttons:
Two people at the Brennans event have now confirmed that the protest had largely broken up by the time it ended, but we also understand from someone who visited Allee Bautsch in the hospital Saturday morning that she and Brown were followed and attacked expressly because they had Palin pins on (she heard one of the attackers say Lets get them, they have Palin pins on so the attack WAS politically motivated as its victims understood it. It was not a mugging, it was not an argument gone wrong and it was not a bar fight.
The story of a Republican and her boyfriend being viciously attacked for wearing Palin buttons has yet to make national headlines, unlike say, unfounded rumors of nasty words being said by Tea Party protesters.
Maybe CNN will give you time to address the Liberal Hate!
Obama’s brown shirts active, I see.
I don’t use the comparison lightly.
I have always felt most vulnerable in a Church, and a School....good for you!
Have you sent this to Breitbart or Drudge? This needs to go viral.
Some of you already here, but for those who are not, an FYI ping!
i am waiting to be run off the road for having my sarah sticker and a couple others....i guess i will be a prime target....
Soft target? Uh uh. Not my church. I know of at least a dozen folk who are packing. Discreetly, quitely, professionally. Because we network.
Sheepdogs, so the flock can rest at ease (and not even know that they’re safe...)
We have men who take turns doing security duty at our church......AND they’re packin’. ;-)
I wonder if the attackers had brown skin.
After all, it’s New Orleans, the “Chocolate City,” according to ex-mayor Nagin.
The Media was more concerned with Tiger’s language when he missed an approach shot during Masters’ play. You have to understand... /sarcasm
One must be armed and prepared to kill if one wants to be safe in new orleans... which is a real ****hole. I am just telling the truth.
What is needed is the legal ability to carry concealed - if they had been armed they could have stopped these thugs.
I wonder how many attackers there were and if the two victims could give descriptions.
Well it’s obvious that violent, racist, sexist, homophobic Tea Partiers are turning on themselves.
I tweeted Sarah Palin to the story...
Next month in Obamaland, conservative Christians arrested for being reading the Bible.
HIDEOUS TREASON TO THE MAX.
Was told recently that I had to keep my mouth shut about my views in the adjunct office.
Lenin and Stalin would be slapping OThuga on the back with high praise.
Gosh, that's quite surprising.
You'd almost think our media was choosing sides.
But...but....they wouldn't do that, would they?
Prayers up for Allee's and Joe's speedy recovery.
