The purpose of this video is to highlight what fear mongering will cause. This does not show gratuitous violence for the sake of showing violence. It shows what we are up against when we express our political ideas, and Lauren, in my opinion, reacted exactly correctly. She didn't not resist. She did not fight back, she did not escalate the violence. But she will use the full scope of the law to make these thugs pay for their crimes.
Lauren was there as part of Moveon.org's latest campaign to present Rand Paul with the Employee of the Month Award from Republicorp™ and several people in the crowd surrounded her, stripped her of a blonde wig and wrestled her to the ground. One man is seen stomping on her head as she lays on the sidewalk.
The man who stomped on Lauren has been identified as Tim Proffitt, Bourbon County Coordinator of the Rand Paul Campaign, and the one doing the wrestling and holding down of Lauren has been identified as Mike Pezzano, Assistant Organizer of Kentucky Open Carry and member of Lexington Rand Paul Meetup.
Wingnuts trying to get this video deleted have failed. It was age restricted, but that is being reviewed. Another video that you had removed was reviewed and reinstated. If it contains what you believe to be violence too graphic to be seen, what does that say about what your comrades have done?
