Monster.com is going to regret handing out t-shirts to little republican psychopaths. Smart move guys.

he learned from watching this woman at a Bush rally--they're a lovely bunch.

maybe that's his mother?

I couldn't watch the video (on a mac) but I was at the RNC and all the folks I ran into wearing the monster.com shirts were low level lackeys who gave directions, kept drinks topped off, etc. Does he identify himself as a delegate?

to be fair, violence is bipartisan...

Now try and visualize Nov 3rd, whatever the result...

Yeah, but that guy got arrested. Whereas the guy at the RNC...

What tapeguy said. And i'd challenge anyone to find more links of Kerry supporters using violence than Bush supporters.

I love that dumb look, of a deer caught in headlights, that he gets when called out on the incident... maybe he should run for president.

Is it just me or does he look a lot like tourist guy?

Don't hurt me: My bumpersticker cred.

I hope they find him. That's inexcusable.

He was thinking in his head, "What would Jesus do?"

Meh, a kick. Jean Chretian would have strangled one protestor and had the rest pepper-sprayed.

Regardless of who wins the election, the US is going to need some seriously cathartic event to reunite us, or at least make the discourse more civil.

I'm glad the republican delegates were required to leave their chain whips and dull machetes at the door...
posted by wfrgms at 9:56 PM on September 5, 2004


Perhaps it was him.

Can't help with the guy himself, sorry, but I'm pretty sure that this is his mother:

That woman needs a punch in the jowls.

I'm envisioning the corpses of several protesters, savaged by an Inuit carving.

Abu Garev! Abu Garev! We have another Lindie Englund. LOL.

This pretty much encapsulates the last four years and the people that support this president.

I'm fairly certain that's false.

You can’t justify an action by pointing to another wrong action.

Yeah, but that guy got arrested. Whereas the guy at the RNC...

I would not be happy with this as evidence of any bias, if this is what was being asserted. From what I can see on the video we don’t know that not arresting this sack was a conscious decision by any law enforcement personnel.

What measures do you think should be employed to ensure that a company’s promotional t-shirts do not get into the hands of undesirable individuals?

I thought we had that chance after the last shameful and ugly election. The 9/11 attacks gave us an opening and we were more unified, for a while...

God, I get depressed about us sometimes.
posted by mmahaffie at 6:29 AM on September 6, 2004


I used to get depressed. Then I imagine Chief Justice Scalia lobbying Justices Hatch and DeLay on some key decision and before you know it, I'm happy again. I'm also blindingly drunk by that time too.

ed\26h, the fact is he wasn't arrested, maybe there was no direct order to let the man get his kicks in, but the atmosphere their must have contributed to the us vs. them mentality.
posted by Space Coyote at 7:44 AM on September 6, 2004


I'm with photoslob -- it appears this guy was hired by the RNC as a low-level employee or possibly a volunteer. In which, I imagine he was just 'doing his job' by knocking around hapless protestors.

You saw the 2-minute-hate directed at Michael Moore...this is an outgrowth of that and the whole convention's rhetoric.

Some say it's the son of a washed-up radio commentator. Not saying I say so, mind you...

well, if nothing else, this demands a complete boycott by the internet glitterati (as well as the rest of us slobs) of monster.com.

Jesus H. Hopefully he'll find himself in the crosshairs of a lawsuit and this thing will blow up in the press.

That guy should be in jail for assault. Disgusting.
