Chris Matthews and MSNBC prepare to demonize Tea Partiers as dangerous extremists while the real violence is being committed by Obama supporters

Yet another shocking example of a pro-Obama thug violently assaulting anti-Obama protesters has emerged right on the eve of an MSNBC hit piece hosted by Chris Matthews which smears anyone who questions the actions of international bankers or the federal government as a dangerous racist who wants to kill people.
As we reported yesterday, an advance script of next week’s “Rise of the Right” MSNBC special, which was leaked to us by a concerned MSNBC staffer, portrays Americans who suspect international bankers might not have their best interests at heart as neo-nazi Hitler supporters who want to shoot cops and instigate a bloody revolution.
In reality, the only violence witnessed at Tea Party gatherings is being dished out by crazed pro-Obama thugs who are incensed that anti-government protesters still have the temerity to express their First Amendment and criticize their dear leader.
A group of local citizens in North Carolina protesting the Financial Reform bill and the Durbin BP Bailout amendment were approached by a man who disagreed with them that Obama was to blame.
After the small gathering of protesters chanted “no more bailouts,” the man began to argue with the group about who was to blame for the financial collapse.
The man then appears to push away another man holding a video camera before putting his hands on the other man’s wife.
“Hey don’t touch my wife, you got it?,” says the cameraman as the clip cuts to another video camera from a different angle which shows the pro-Obama thug wrestling with and then slamming the cameraman with a vicious punch to the face.
When the pro-Obama thug is asked to remain at the scene because the police want to talk to him, he states, “you get your camera, you shove it up your ass”. He then threatens the cameraman with violence again saying, “If you don’t fuck around, you’ll get hurt”. The man is subsequently seen standing near a police car but it is unclear whether any action was taken.
Watch the clip.
Over the course of the past year, we have documented numerous instances of pro-Obama thugs committing violence against Tea Party activists or anti-bailout protesters. While the establishment media constantly invokes violence in its demonization of anti-Obama protesters, there has barely been a single tangible example of this, and yet anti-Obama thugs commit violence on a routine basis safe in the knowledge that the corporate media will never report on it.
During an August 2009 demonstration in Mehville, Missouri, Obamacare opponents were locked out of a town hall meeting before Union thugs viciously attacked patriot and Tea Party activist Kenneth Gladney, who was handing out Gadsden flags outside the stage-managed event, while hurling racist insults. According to Chris Matthews. the Gadsden flag is part of the extremist paraphernalia of dangerous anti-Obama right-wingers, and yet it was Gladney who was attacked by pro-Obama thugs merely for handing them out.
“Kenneth was attacked on the evening of August 6, 2009 at Rep. Russ Carnahan’s town hall meeting in South St. Louis County,” wrote Gladney’s attorney, David B. Brown, in an email sent to Infowars. “Kenneth was approached by an SEIU representative as Kenneth was handing out ‘Don’t Tread on Me’ flags to other conservatives. The SEIU representative demanded to know why a black man was handing out these flags. The SEIU member used a racial slur against Kenneth, then punched him in the face. Kenneth fell to the ground. Another SEIU member yelled racial epithets at Kenneth as he kicked him in the head and back. Kenneth was also brutally attacked by one other male SEIU member and an unidentified woman. The three men were clearly SEIU members, as they were wearing T-shirts with the SEIU logo.”
The video clip below shows the aftermath of the attack.
Brown characterized the attack on Gladney, who was hospitalized with multiple injuries, as “a truly senseless hate crime,” but you wouldn’t have heard Chris Matthews talking about it on MSNBC the next day, because it wasn’t carried out by Tea Party members, it was an attack by pro-Obamacare thugs furious at people for using their free speech to express opinions which differed to their own.
Elston McCowan, 47, of St. Louis, and Perry Molens, 50, of De Soto, each were later charged with assaulting Gladney.
Here’s how Gladney himself described the incident.
A group of people with purple t-shirts were leaving the rally. As the group walked past me, I offered one of the gentlemen a Gadsen flag and a button. The man turned and looked at my board and said, “who in the fuck is selling this shit?”
I replied “I am Sir, would you like a flag or a button?“
He shouted at me, “What kind of nigger are you?!” Then, he grabbed my board, so I quickly grabbed it back, then the man punched me in the face and charged at me . I put my hands up to block the second blow from the large man, when two other people from that group grabbed me and threw me to the ground and started punching and kicking me. I was kicked in the head and in the back, legs and buttocks. Then a white woman ran up to me while I was on the ground and began kicking me in my head as well. A few people came to my rescue for which I am forever grateful.
Since then my life has been turned upside down and I wake up some days feeling scared and fearful for my life. The media has attacked me. They have made me out to be a dishonest and untrustworthy person. The real Kenneth is a kind and trust worthy man that just wants to be respected as a good man with a positive attitude that loves all people, no matter what walks of life they come from. I go to church and I believe in God, I hope to move past all of this and go on with my life. I still do not have a job and this situation has just made my life more complicated.
So when pro-Obamacare thugs racially taunt and beat up innocent bystanders, the media either ignores it or attacks the victim, but if so much as a window gets broken in a Democratic campaign office, it’s immediately portrayed by the media as a frightening portend of a violent right-wing revolution.

This goes to the heart of what corporate media smears against the Tea Party are all about – an effort to silence dissent by framing opposition to big government as extremist, racist and dangerous – when in reality the only real instances of racism and violence have been committed by pro-Obamacare thugs.
But it doesn’t end there – here’s another example for of Tea Party members being attacked by extreme pro-Obama leftists.
During a November 2009 immigration enforcement rally, A.N.S.W.E.R.-hired thugs attacked 62-year-old Dave Caulkett of Floridians for Immigration Enforcement, pummeling him with their signs and kicking him in the face as other A.N.S.W.E.R. goons cheered.
Watch the clip below.
Before the event, A.N.S.W.E.R. Florida had sent out an email to their members calling for a “militant confrontation with the so-called “tea baggers.”
“Beating back these forces will require us to organize together, take the streets, fight the racists wherever they show their faces and drive them out of every community,” stated the email.
As this blog points out, “As can also be clearly seen on the video, A.N.S.W.E.R. organizers set their thugs loose on the two men and stood by until they heard police coming. Then they stopped their members and repositioned them to make it look like nothing happened. This was an orchestrated attack designed to make people fearful of protesting against their agenda.”
So we have three clear examples, and there are many more, over the past 12 months where pro-Obama thugs have viciously attacked and assaulted Tea Partiers who are merely expressing their First Amendment rights, but you won’t have heard Chris Matthews talking about it, because it debunks the corporate media’s contrived fairytale that anyone who disagrees with Obama or thinks that international bankers don’t have average Americans’ best interests at heart are dangerous racists who want to kill people.
