'I Am ... Shaken Up By the Level of Sheer Hatred I Experienced Today...'

That's Tabitha Hale, from her report yesterday on the union thugs who showed up at her place of work, "Union Thuggery Descends On FreedomWorks":
Basically, it’s ridiculous. I’m a 5′1 female in a dress, and he was standing up on a garden wall above me in the courtyard. He hardly felt threatened. I was stunned, because generally protesters are there to, you know, get their message out. They don’t normally shy away from the camera.

I’m very much okay, and very appreciative of the support from my fellow bloggers and activists today. I am, however, shaken up by the level of sheer hatred I experienced today. The look of fury on his face in the close up is appalling. I had not exchanged a word with him. He didn’t know who I was. He didn’t even know my name, what I do. He had probably surmised that I was with FreedomWorks and that was enough.

This just can’t be tolerated anymore. It’s one thing to be called a violent teabagger. It’s another to be called a violent teabagger while you’re being assaulted. They’ve been comparing themselves to the Egyptians ousting Mubarak. Looks like they’re not too far off, given that they share the tendency to assault women with cameras.



More from Red State, "
Union Thugs: This Time It’s Personal…" And Glenn Reynolds has a roundup. Plus, at Da Tech Guy's, "If the goal of Unions is provocation..."

Demon TBogg slurs Tabitha Hale as a "pudgy FreedomWorks Warrior For Freedom," and says she had it coming. As do the freaks at Wonkette.

Stay classy, progs.

The people comparing their "plight" to those in the Middle East is ridiculous and embarassing. They should be ashamed of themselves.

Tell me Donald, does your JuCo employer have anyone on staff who teaches remedial reading?

"As a pudgy FreedomWorks Warrior For Freedom demands that a Union guy discuss Freedom with him, Tabitha Hale shows up and and decides to shove her iPhone in the Union guys face..."

Even by your standards...very sloppy.

Demon TBogg: Aren't you burned out on your stale schtick? Leftist demonology just ain't what it used to be, with the progs now flailing under the regime of Barack Hussein, the President of Fail.
