I am working on the template of this blog today in order to chase down some problems that have developed with my template and widgets.

Rand Paul Supporter Stomps Woman at Kentucky Debate
Update: Rand Paul Condemns Head Stomping
Update: Volunteer with Rand Paul Campaign Apologizes for Attack

Rand Paul Supporter Stomps Liberal Moveon Activist

**update** The photo I posted earlier was NOT of the stomper. He was the one who shoved her to the ground.

This to me seems typical of the extremist types who support both Rand Paul and his father. This is not the first act of political street fighting or Brownshirt fascist tactics used by these people. Violence without cause like this should not be tolerated.

In this video, Ron Paul Supporters chase Sean Hannity through the streets in New Hampshire. I can't help but wonder how badly he would have been beaten if he had been caught.

The following is a screen shot of the comments left by Ron Paul Supporters on the above video:

**1.22am** The Rand Paul Campaign has condemned the violence

Violence of any kind has no place in our civil discourse and we urge supporters on all sides to be civil to one another as tensions rise heading toward this very important election.”

A volunteer with Rand Paul's Senate campaign has admitted to placing his shoe firmly on the face of a volunteer outside a Senate debate on Monday night, but insisted that the camera angle of the footage that captured the altercation made the scuffle look worse than it was.
Tim Profitt apologized for the incident in a statement sent to a local AP reporter. But he also criticized the police for not stepping in to calm down the crowd and argued that other supporters had previously warned authorities about the MoveOn activist, Lauren Valle.

Let's go to the this a light placement of the foot or a stomp?

**7.12am** The guy who dragged Lauren Valle to the ground and pinned her there has also been identified. His name is Mike Pezzano. He was identified by a fellow Tea Party member, who wished to remain anonymous.
