WI - ASSAULT/BATTERY by TBagger in Madison !!!
I'm on a conference call right now, but wanted to get this shared asap

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEic7T5a0BY

Today a tBagger took a sign - ironically, the one that says, "INTEGRITY," - and used that to hit Jeremy Ryan, who is one of our hardest-working protesters. Jeremy is disabled and uses a Segway for mobility. Police were called, and charges will be filed.

PLEASE watch the video and share with everyone you know.

OK, back to the conference call...

Jeremy will be getting a copy of the police report tomorrow. "Friend" Segway Jeremy Ryan on FB or go to www.DefendingWisconsin.org and click on "Videos" to see updates. Jeremy posts videos pretty much every day.

14. The teabaggers represent everything that is 'uncivilized' in society.
I sure hope the hell this asshole gets fined at the very least. If not, we no longer live in a civilized society.

16. I'm glad y'all had cameras.............
We had a MoveOn council meeting tonight and I brought up the need for as many video cameras as possible at ANY and ALL of our actions. If something happens (like this) I want it videoed.

these types of actions.

Edited on Tue Apr-26-11 01:30 PM by SpiralHawk
RepublicBaggers (R) live in a state of constant fear & hate for America and democracy...

RepubliBaggers take their marching orders from fatcat corporatists intent on imposing a Corporate Facist Homeland on the US of A, and broadcast 24/7 through their corporate media propaganda outlets.

21. Walker was trying to instigate this happening with the pro union protesters, SO
they would lose 'credibility.'

Now THEY (anti untion protesters)lose credibility. What do you say to this Walker???

27. He kept swinging those signs and basically admitted to it on the video. He will have a hard time

defending his actions in court for sure. Y'all be sure to file charges and make sure that these violent assholes are sent a message that this type of behavior is not acceptable in a civil society.

41. Clayton Ruby. Typical redneck sounding name.
Right up there with Cletus McWillie or Billy Joe Magruder.

30. UPDATE!!!
If you're interested in following what is going on in Madison, I would suggest you "friend" Segway Jeremy Ryan on Facebook. He has posted the name of the attacker. What a surprise... if the information is correct, the tBagger is the grandson of a former Republican State Senator! I want to confirm the details before I post anything here, but as I said, if you are a FB friend of Jeremy's, you'll get the information directly from him.

40. This is what the end of the Tea Party looks like folks, Ruby is the grandson of Gordon Bradley(R)
The attacker in the video has been identified as one Clayton Ruby of Madison, WI. The name may not ring a bell but his ancestry may. He is the grandson of a former state Rep. Gordon Bradley (Republican).

42. Clay Ruby thinks he's a musician and has a band. There
are videos. Disturbing, to say the least. Here is one of them, but I didn't watch the whole thing, I just couldn't do it. http://vimeo.com/21677917

43. yeah,
I wouldn't watch them after seeing some of the comments on fb. I don't need more disturbing images to deal with. Just seeing the tBaggers around is disturbing enough!

44. No, you don't need to see it. It's totally creepy and it's
enough to give any sane person nightmares. It's hard to imagine that that band of his has any fans or makes any money, but perhaps there are more disturbed and disgusting people in the world than I thought there were. Ugh!
