My friend's encounter with a teabagger (scary)

Yesterday afternoon, he was in the locker room of a Bally's, which had several TVs that were all on Fox News every day. Now this guy is apathetic when it comes to politics, he just wanted to watch something different, so he switched the channel on one of the TVs. Just for that, another guest kicked him in the crotch multiple times and called him a n****r-loving f@&&ot, at which point an off-duty police officer intervened. When the assailant was arrested, they discovered a .44 magnum on him. Had someone not stopped him, my friend might have been murdered instead of merely beaten up, just for choosing to watch something other than Fux News. Guess the local tea party is gonna be missing a member.

So for you sane Republicans lurking there, ask yourselves: do you want to share a political party with violent bigoted fascists like this guy? Give a good, long, hard thought to the company you keep.

2. what state?

might be able to help. he needs to press charges full throttle and sue his a off. hopefully, bail is in the 7 figure range. thats attempted murder. plus prob. a hate crime.

the last paragraph will go unanswered because all Republicans I know are fascists whether they admit it or not. they secretly think stuff like this is admirable.

4. Inquiring minds want to know - where did he find the .44 Magnum?

 

Was it concealed?

5. Ugh. Every time I work out at the rec center I change all the tvs to MSNBC. I go when its slow.

When I come back most are on Faux. But at least my people seem civil. I am assuming Bally's caught the whole thing on video and it has been turned over to the authorities.

7. In a public place

if I change the channel, I change it to the Animal Planet or Food Network or something that is empty of any politics. Sorry for your friend. There are a lot of creeps anymore.

20. From the sound of it, it was simply turning off the Ministry Of Truth that set the guy off

Even Alton Brown couldn't have saved him, with this beyond-creepy guy.

14. If the local news does

cover it, I would love to have a link. I believe that he was attacked, and if I can get a link there are a couple of people that need to see such things really happen.

Now they might dismiss it anyway but at least I've tried. I love to shove this kind of thing in the faces of people who believe Fox and think the progressives are the violent ones.

16. The scary thing is

he actually IS gay. Thankfully, even though the guy called him a f@&&ot, he didn't know that, or he probably would have killed him.

19. My first thought, too

The instant rage might be a side-effect.
