After walking away from town hall brawl, conservative shows up on Fox in wheelchair

VIDEOS (dial up for kpete today - i am virtually blind, kp): http://thepoliticalcarnival.blogspot.com/2009/08/videos...

...taken immediately after the incident:

It sure looks like Kenneth Gladney could walk without so much a a limp to me. He was also speaking clearly and without obvious pain. But what do I know?

....................

The Obama administration (thugs) said to punch back twice as hard and 2 black men wearing S.E.I.U. shirts took it literally by beating down a black conservative just for exercising his right to free speech.St. Louis County police say six people were arrested. Two of those were arrested on suspicion of assault, one of resisting arrest and three on suspicion of committing peace disturbances. Carnahan was gone when the ruckus started.

Kenneth Gladney, a 38-year-old conservative activist from St. Louis, said he was attacked by some of those arrested as he handed out yellow flags with Don't tread on me printed on them. He spoke to the Post-Dispatch from the emergency room of the St. John's Mercy Medical Center, where he said he was waiting to be treated for injuries to his knee, back, elbow, shoulder and face that he suffered in the attack. Gladney, who is black, said one of his attackers, also a black man, used a racial slur against him before the attack started.

It just seems there's no freedom of speech without being attacked, he said.


......................

During today's press conference Kenneth Gladney was in a wheel chair and unable to speak because he was on pain killers. But for some reason he was not in a wheel chair and was able to speak when he made numerous appearances on FOX NEWS ("Your Money w/Neil Cavuto" "The O"Reilly Factor") on 8.7.09.

more plus several videos:

You created this atmosphere with your screaming and disrupting and bullying and teabagging. And now you're at a loss to understand why the opposition is not only striking back, but in kind. And Gladney is black? That's an EXTRA nice touch.

5. They (the nutsos) want to provoke an attack so they can go on TV
and play the victim. Everyone that attends these meeting should be armed with a video camera.

16. Okay, I don't hate, necessarily, all of them;
but I do wish they would consent to give the rest of us, who prefer the warmer climes of sanity, a frickin' break. Especially the ones some of us have in our extended families.


Is your dad still unsure which way is up after 8 years of getting the business from you?

18. My Dad is a retired distinguished Prof. ...
.... very hard for him to admit what happened in Ohio 2004 ..... although he has come
clean about Florida 2000. He never voted for W but he has deep republican roots ....
fiscal conservative and socially progressive ..... the party chased his type out years ago.

I remember when the story about bush going AWOL came out he had his military service
jacket out ....... every day from the time he went in Navy ROTC & Korea until the time he
left was accounted for ..... he knows W was and is a little shit.

Sometimes the smart talk is about how your tomatoes are doing ......

21. You are correct again.
Tomatoes we can talk about. And maybe move on from there.

28. Aren't tomatoes reality based?
I would have trouble discussing something as banal as vegetables. No offense intended towards your father.

8. show up ... be a pain in the ass ..... get a beat down.
Edited on Sat Aug-08-09 07:51 PM by Botany
Not that I am promoting such acts but I can understand the anger ........ I want to jack slap some of these
tea baggers myself but that is what the other side wants.

BTW that man is in a wheel chair now? .... he looked just fine after his beat down. ( :applause: Union Guy)


Piss off a really big strong union guy and then give him a shove and see what happens to you. Every time I see
the Florida 2000 Brooks Brothers Riot I wish I was there w/ a baseball bat.

BTW II the guy in the White Shirt w/ the mouth was pretty fast in moving away when the Union guy walked at him. :rofl:

17. Kenneth Gladney got a little "tub thumping"
.... but a very little one ..... the Union dude could have picked him up and thrown him
to the ground.

11. first of all, these whimps lie about everything
they should rename their party the Victimiest Party (I read that somewhere today).

Second of all, LOL. Bring it! Big talkers, yelling and screaming and hooting, not so much when the big union boys show up. LOL.

Oh, it's delicious. I have only one response to their whining: B Girl.

Cried wolf one too many times. No one cares anymore.

19. I used to have this dog
Tiny little thing. When the meter-reader guy would come into the backyard, she would bark like the dickens at him. When she realized he wasn't afraid of her, she would start yelping like he had hit her with a brick. My mother would open the back door and the meter-reader fellow would say:

"I didn't touch your dog."

My mom would say:

"I know. She's dramatic."

Kenneth Gladney reminds me of that dog.

20. Victim story doesn't match the video
I can't see the guy who claims he was hit in the video until further in. But at the start, an SEIU guy is on the ground trying to get up. The alleged victim has nothing about that in his story. How did that happen? A few seconds into the video, another blue shirt guy goes down. It looks like somebody on the ground hooked his ankle from the ground and tripped him. Its all hard to tell. Its sure that the alleged victim's story isn't right though, as he tells nothing about SEIU guys on the ground.

26. Lying liars aside. Perhaps the rest of the fools considering disrupting
progress at health care town halls, will stay home after the airing of these lies? ;)
