It was at this point, however, that I was physically attacked by several of Armstrong's supporters. One or more individuals, who I could not positively identify, grabbed my styrofoam sign. The crowd then tore it to pieces and stomped on it gleefully. In attempting to hold onto my sign, my right arm was significantly bruised and remained so for over a week. I did not fight back, even though I would have been within my rights to do so. Instead, I continued my peaceful witness and hummed Amazing Grace as I began to walk away...
As I was violently attacked by Armstrong's supporters on a public sidewalk this past July, images of other recent hate crimes against Christian believers and racial minorities filled my mind... As I was viciously attacked by Armstrong's thugs for simply holding a sign with a message that they did not like, I also recalled fellow Michigan pro-lifer Jim Pouillon, who was mowed-down in a hail of bullets and killed last September 11, 2009 while witnessing for the rights of the unborn outside of the local high school in Owosso, Michigan. Jim, an elderly man who wore leg braces and carried an oxygen tank, was killed by a pro-abortion fanatic who did not like Jim's powerful pro-life sign.
With flashes of Jim's martyrdom in my thoughts, and knowing that gun fire was not uncommon around Necto, the hostility of the crowd that July evening/morning told me that I was in serious danger. Thanks to the Lord above and my guardian angels, the Devil did not get all that he wanted outside of Necto.
Among other things, Shirvell has published blog posts that accuse Armstrong of going back on a campaign promise he made to minority students; engaging in “flagrant sexual promiscuity” with another male member of the student government; sexually seducing and influencing “a previously conservative [male] student” so much so that the student, according to Shirvell, “morphed into a proponent of the radical homosexual agenda;” hosting a gay orgy in his dorm room in October 2009; and trying to recruit incoming first year students “to join the homosexual ‘lifestyle.’”
8:00 a.m. Wake up. Wonder where you are.
8:01 a.m. Realize you are laying on 100 percent cotton sheets of at least a 300 count, so don't panic; you're not slumming.
8:02 a.m. Realize you are actually in your own bed for a change. Wake stranger next to you and tell him you are late for work so you won't be able to cook breakfast for him. Mutter "sorry" as you help him look for his far-flung underwear. You find out that you tore his boxers while ripping them off him last night, so you "loan" him a pair of boxer-briefs, but not the new ones because you never intend to see him again.
8:05 a.m. Tell the stranger, whose name eludes you, "It was fun. I'll give you a call," as you usher him out the door, avoiding his egregious morning-breath.
8:06 a.m. Crumple and dispose of the piece of paper with his telephone number on it when you get to the kitchen.
8:07 a.m. Make a high protein breakfast while watching Good Morning America. Wonder if the stories you've heard about George Stephanopoulos are true. Decide they must be.
8:30 a.m. Italian or domestic? Decide to go with three-button Italian and the only shirt that is clean.
8:45 a.m. Climb into red BMW and try not to look too much like Barbie driving one of her accessories as you pull out of your underground parking. Prada or Armani sunglasses? Go with Prada.
9:35 a.m. Stroll into office.
9:36 a.m. Close door to office and call best friend and laugh about the guy who spent the night at your condo. Point out something annoying about best friend's boyfriend but quickly add "It doesn't matter what everyone else thinks, just as long as you love him."
10:15 a.m. Leave office, telling your secretary you are "meeting with a client." Pretend not to notice her insubordinate roll of the eyes (or the cloying "poem" she has tacked to her cubicle wall).
10:30 a.m. Hair appointment for highlights and cut. Purchase of Aveda anti-humectant pomade.
11:30 a.m. Run into personal trainer at gym. Pester him about getting you Human Growth Hormone. Spend 30 minutes talking to friends on your cell phone while using Hammer Strength machines, preparing a mental-matrix of which circuit parties everyone is going to and which are now passé.
12:00pm Tan. Schedule back-waxing in time for Saturday party where you know you will end up shirtless.
12:30 p.m. Pay trainer for anabolic steroids and schedule a workout for next week. Shower, taking ten minutes dry off while you check-out your best friend's boyfriend undress with the calculation of someone used to wearing a t-back and having dollars stuffed in his crotch.
1:00 p.m. Meet someone (for whom you only know his waist, chest and penis size from Manhunt) for lunch at a hot, new restaurant. Because the maître d' recognizes you from a gay bar, you are whisked past the Christian heterosexual couples who have been waiting patiently for a table since 12:30.
2:30 p.m. "Dessert at your place." Find out, once again, people lie on Manhunt.
3:33 p.m. Assume complete control of the U.S., state, and local governments (in addition to other nations' governments); destroy all healthy Christian marriages; recruit all children grades Kindergarten through 12 into your amoral, filthy lifestyle; secure complete control of the media, starting with sitcoms; molest innocent children; give AIDS to as many people as you can; host a pornographic "art" exhibit at your local art museum; and turn people away from Jesus, causing them to burn forever in Hell.
4:10 p.m. Time permitting, bring about the general decline of Western Civilization and look like you are having way too much fun doing it.
4:30 p.m. Take a disco-nap to prevent facial wrinkles from the stress of world conquest and being so terribly witty.
6:00 p.m. Open a fabulous new bottle of Malbec.
6:47 P.M. Bake Ketamine for weekend. Test recipe.
7:00 P.M. Go to Abercrombie & Fitch and announce in a loud voice, "Over! Way over!"
7:40 P.M. Stop looking at the hunky photographic displays at Abercrombie & Fitch and go to a cool store to begin shopping.
8:30 p.m. Light dinner with catty homosexual friends at a restaurant you will all be "over" by the time it gets its first review in the local paper.
10:30 p.m. Cocktails at a debauched gay bar, trying to avoid alcoholic queens who can't navigate a crowd with a lit cigarette in one hand and a Grey Goose in a cheap plastic cup in the other. Make audible remark about how "trashy" people who still think smoking is acceptable are.
12:00 a.m. "Nightcap at your place." Find out that people lie in bars, too.*
But it was the FB wall post by 'gay' student activist Tommy Habratowski that made it clear to all who were not present exactly what took place at Armstrong's dorm on the evening of October 24th:
Had a blast last night. Thank you for hosting the night of
Merriam-Webster's on-line dictionary defines "shenanigans" as "questionable practices or conduct" and "high-spirited or mischevious activity." Put "homosexual" in front of "shenanigans" and it is quite apparent that Habratowski was indeed referring to a "gay" orgy.

Last Wednesday, Truth Caucus posted pictures of a disfigured Zatkoff under the headline "Hate Crime: College Republican Allegedly Beaten By Liberal Thugs."
The post cited a source close to Zatkoff who said he may have been attacked by members of the pro-affirmative action group By Any Means Necessary or a gay rights group. The story attracted national attention and was soon picked up by other sites like Wonkette.com, a Washington gossip blog, and dailykos.com, a well-known liberal blog.
"Mr. [Andrew] Shirvell is sort of a frontline grunt assistant prosecutor in my office. He does satisfactory work and off-hours, he's free to engage under both our civil service rules, Michigan Supreme Court rulings and the United States Supreme Court rule."
"Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox appeared on Anderson Cooper's show last night to defend Andrew Shirvell, his staffer who maintains an exceedingly homophobic blog about the University of Michigan's openly gay student body president, Chris Armstrong.
Though Cox admitted Shirvell's actions are 'unbecoming' and that he's 'clearly a bully,' the outgoing Attorney General insisted Shirvell's well within his Constitutional rights: 'Here in America, we have this thing called the First Amendment, which allows people to express what they think and -- and -- and engage in political and social speech.'
He did point out, however, that if Armstrong were to receive a restraining order of some sort, then perhaps Shirvell could, in theory, be reprimanded.
'If a personal protection order was sought by Mr. Armstrong and granted in the Michigan civil service or a disciplinary code,' said the Attorney General, 'we could start looking at things in terms of perhaps sending to an employee assistance program.'
In the end, Cox, who lost his gubernatorial bid to Republican Rick Snyder, threw up his hands about the entire affair, and said, 'The reality is, I'm out of office in three months. I have a duty to defend the Michigan Constitution. I have a duty to defend the Michigan civil service rules, even at those times when I don't like it.'"*
"In the personal protection order application filed Sept. 13, Armstrong calls Shirvell 'a threat to my own personal safety' and details several instances where Shirvell followed Armstrong’s friends as they partied in various Ann Arbor locations, hoping to confront Armstrong.
Armstrong also writes that Shirvell called Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s office twice over the summer after Armstrong took a job there to lodge complaints against Armstrong.
On Sept. 6, Armstrong asked for an escort from the University of Michigan’s Department of Public Safety after Shirvell showed up at Armstrong’s Ann Arbor home. Armstrong also said in court documents that Shirvell showed up at 1:30 a.m. at a house party Armstrong was holding on Sept. 4."
“‘If I was still Attorney General and Andrew Shirvell worked for me, he would have already been fired,’ Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D) tweeted yesterday. In its article that has been pulled, the Detroit News reported that Cox fired back at Granholm for the tweet. ‘I don’t know why she’s so freaking irresponsible. … she went to Harvard Law School,’ Cox said. ‘The civil service rules are a huge shield for free speech and she knows that.’ (Legal experts have said that Cox has a case to dismiss Shirvell.)”*
