Media Matters and Think Progress – owned by group committed to “promoting the policies of Barack Obama,” completely fail to mention that Rand Paul supporter was also victim of assault

The establishment media and the George Soros-funded White House press whores Media Matters and Think Progress are raging about how a Rand Paul supporter stomped on a female MoveOn activist following last night’s Paul-Conway debate in Lexington, while covering up the fact that a female Rand Paul activist was also the victim of a stomping metered out by a Conway supporter just moments before.
An Associated Press video of the incident seems to go to great lengths to slow down the stomping in order to increase shock value, while conveniently failing to capture on film an almost identical incident moments before where a female Rand Paul supporter had her bandaged foot sliced open by a Conway fan who stomped her in a similar fashion.
Lauren Valle, a liberal MoveOn activist, attempted to create a confrontation by moving towards Paul after the debate, only to be restrained by Rand Paul fans. The video shows one of them push his foot down on the woman’s upper back in a stomping motion. Other Rand Paul activists try to discourage the man from hurting the woman.
The Rand Paul supporter who assaulted the woman is clearly a thug and should be criminally charged, but the establishment media and the George Soros-funded blogs have hastily exploited this unfortunate incident in an effort to prop up the flailing political campaign of Democrat Jack Conway, by attempting to demonize Rand Paul supporters as a mob of angry brownshirts.
For some reason, they don’t seem as keen to report on allegations of criminal money being behind the Conway campaign, a far bigger scandal, neither have they bothered to highlight an almost identical situation which occurred last night where a Conway supporter stomped on a Rand Paul activist before the Rand Paul supporter did the same to Valle.
As the leftist blogs rage about the actions of the Rand Paul supporter, the Kentucky Post was one of barely a handful of publications to acknowledge that a Conway supporter assaulted a Rand Paul fan in precisely the same manner.
“The second occurred after a Conway supporter stepped on the foot of a female Rand supporter, who recently had foot surgery, according to police,” states the report.
“The woman was wearing a surgical boot, but after the injury, her incision was cut open. Police say she refused medical treatment and also filed an assault report.”
Think Progress, the website bankrolled by the Center for American Progress Action Fund, a think tank headed by Bill Clinton’s former chief of staff John D. Podesta, who was also head of Barack Obama’s presidential transition team after the 2008 election, failed to mention that a Rand Paul activist was also stomped on by a Conway fan last night.
It’s unsurprising that Think Progress would run a cover-up for Democrat establishment candidate Conway, given the fact that Center for American Progress director Jennifer Palmieri admits that the goal of the organization is focused around “driving the White House’s message and agenda.”
Neither does it come as a shock that Media Matters, who recently received a $1 million contribution from billionaire globalist Soros, would also fail to mention the Conway supporter’s stomp in the course of their coverage of the story. Media Matters is tied at the hip with Think Progress as part of Podesta’s Progressive Media propaganda campaign, described as a “war room for promoting the foreign and domestic policies of Barack Obama.” Podesta also helped found Media Matters.
While being owned by organizations whose goal it is to ‘promote the policies of Barack Obama’ and ‘drive the White House’s message and agenda’, both Think Progress and Media Matters ludicrously claim to be “non-partisan,” which is like suggesting that Karl Rove is non-partisan towards the Republican Party.
Media Matters and Think Progress are transparently nothing more than press whores for the Obama White House. That’s why their baseless smears against Alex Jones and others are written by anonymous cowards who refuse to even put their name to their stories.

After months of endless contrived smears against Rand Paul that failed miserably, leftist Obamanoids were probably licking their lips when the “stomping” story emerged this morning. But now it has emerged that a Rand Paul supporter was the victim of an identical stomping, the scandal has blown up in their face.
Lefitist publications like the Huffington Post, Media Matters and Think Progress have once again been exposed in their pathetic attempts to manufacture fake controversies to score political propaganda points, just as liberals were left red-faced after a Conway supporter attempted to pose as a racist Rand Paul fan in an underhanded and pathetic ploy to discredit the Kentucky Senatorial candidate.
The Conway incident was by no means the only example of Obamanoid thugs attacking Tea Party activists for daring to go against the Democrat borg. Indeed, there have been innumerable cases of leftists viciously assaulting conservatives, most of which have been caught on video, but the establishment media just isn’t interested.
That’s because you can’t sell a fearmongering campaign about the rise of the angry right and how critics of Obama are racist extremists intent on violence when the only racist extremists carrying out violence are all leftist Obama supporters.
Earlier this year, 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, indeed, last night’s stomping incident was the first, 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 MSNBC’s 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,” (Gladney is black) but you wouldn’t have heard the Huffington Post, Media Matters, or Think Progress talking about it, 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, were each later charged with assaulting Gladney.
But it doesn’t end there – here’s another example 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.”
Huffington Post, Media Matters, Think Progress and the rest of the Soros/White House mouthpieces need to think twice before attempting to generate contrived scandals about Rand Paul, because every time they launch another smear, it routinely backfires and only has the effect of increasing support for the Kentucky candidate.
Supporters of Paul’s campaign should welcome the efforts of the Soros borg media, because collectively they’ve been so vehemently discredited that being attacked by them is fast turning into some kind of badge of honor which denotes the trustworthiness and genuine threat posed to the establishment by genuine Tea Party candidates like Rand Paul.
