Everyone should equally condemn this behavior, just as Rand Paul did, and disassociate themselves from any sort of violence. That this woman was wearing a disguise and carrying a foreign object as she approached a political candidate does not speak well for her intelligence, but there is no doubt that this character overreacted and should be charged. This is being condemned by everyone who witnessed that video."The Paul for Senate campaign is extremely disappointed in, and condemns the actions of a supporter last night outside the KET debate. Whatever the perceived provocation, any level of aggression or violence is deplorable, and will not be tolerated by our campaign. The Paul campaign has disassociated itself from the volunteer who took part in this incident, and once again urges all activists -- on both sides -- to remember that their political passions should never manifest themselves in physical altercations of any kind".
But speaking of abortion violence, the greatest mass murderer in US history was Kermit Gosnell, with few on the left condemning him. Instead they directed the argument about being for or against abortion, which would be equivalent to someone saying that wearing disguises and carrying unidentified objects are okay at political rallies. It misses the point altogether.
One loon does not a political group make but when thousands of loons are rioting, destroying private and public party and attacking the police, then there is room for criticism of that party.
