The Face of Liberal Civility

It’s already national — hell it’s on Drudge — but this is trav­esty and sadly all too expected given the state of men­tal decline in Wisconsin’s lib­eral and pro­gres­sive cir­cles.  Even­tu­ally some­one would get beat up over some­thing as triv­ial as a lawn sign, and that guy just hap­pened to be the son of a sit­ting state senators.

Way to go “tol­er­ate left.”  Way to prove your­selves the morally supe­rior ones…again.

State Sen­a­tor Neal Kedzie says his son was attacked while try­ing to stop some­one from steal­ing his Romney/Ryan yard sign.

White­wa­ter Police tell NBC15 News this is an active investigation.

Here is the state­ment released by Sen­a­tor Neal Kedzie:

Early on Fri­day morn­ing, Octo­ber 19th, my son Sean was awak­ened by noises out­side his res­i­dence in White­wa­ter. As he went to see what the com­mo­tion was about, he noticed an indi­vid­ual remov­ing a Romney/Ryan yard sign from his prop­erty. He yelled to the per­son that they were tak­ing some­thing not theirs and to return it immediately.

The indi­vid­ual returned the sign, how­ever, a sec­ond per­son con­fronted and attacked Sean with­out warning.

Sean was wres­tled to the ground by both per­sons, held down by a con­strict­ing choke­hold, and struck repeat­edly about the face and head.

He nearly passed out from the choke­hold and suf­fered con­tu­sions to his face and eyes.

For­tu­nately, an alert neigh­bor heard the com­mo­tion, scared the indi­vid­u­als away, and called the police.

My wife and I were awak­ened by a tele­phone call from Sean’s room­mate that Sean had been taken by ambu­lance to Fort Atkin­son Memo­r­ial Hospital.

Sean was treated for his injuries and released from the hos­pi­tal the same day.

Didn’t hear it, but I’ve seen some are report­ing that WISN talk radio host had Sean Kedzie on his show this after­noon to talk about the attack.

Since I’m the only con­ser­v­a­tive blog­ger in WI who still ven­tures into the lib­eral blogs since they’ve all lost their minds, it is inter­est­ing to note that none of them have yet to com­ment on this news.

    Blog­ging Blue has a very clear denun­ci­a­tion of this ter­ri­ble act (http://bloggingblue.com/2012/10/22/son-of-state-senator-attacked-over-yard-sign/).

    Notice the absence of accu­sa­tion of false flag, which would surely have been the claim were the party ID reversed.

    Yeah, it came after my post.

    And notice that Jeff “I point the Repub­li­can Thugs!” Simp­son hasn’t chimed in yet.

    My RSS reader says they beat you by 13 hours. Don’t see a time­stamp on your arti­cle, so how do we know for sure?

    Recal­i­brate your clock, Jim. The RSS feed says Kevin got his post up at 7:48:36 pm. Zach’s showed up at 8:28 pm.

    Just say­ing what my feed reader says. Not say­ing it’s infallible.

    I would bet that at least 99% of Obama sup­port­ers would not dream of remov­ing yard signs in the first place, not to men­tion beat­ing the snot out of a voter of an oppos­ing party. The vast major­ity, nearly all, even, of Amer­i­cans want what is best for our coun­try. If we could use that as a start­ing point, maybe it would be eas­ier to have a civil dis­cus­sion about how to fix things.
