The Naked Face Of Leftism: All In The Family
In a State Senate race in Massachusetts, we have a specific case of Leftist Thuggery.
It does not involve violence, but it does involve intimidation and arrogance and attempting to use the police [twice] to prevent people from exercising their First Amendment rights. It is a warning to us all.
Roxeanne de Luca has the story here.
From her report, the background:
Every election cycle, Catholic Citizenship, a non-partisan group of lay Catholics, distributes voter guides. Yesterday and today, the group handed out the flyers in front of churches around the Commonwealth. One voter guide had the 12th Norfolk state representative race on one side (incumbent John Rogers against Jim Stanton), with the Elizabeth Warren/Scott Brown positions on the reverse. The state rep voter guide may be found here. The information is culled from the candidates’ responses to questions, statements they have made, and, as applicable, votes cast. Although John Rogers’ staff and parents have refused to cite any misleading or incorrect information on the guides, they strongly oppose their distribution.
Elaine, a woman in her mid-sixties, and Bridget, a young attorney, stood in the public parking lot outside of St. Catherine of Siena parish in Norwood, Massachusetts, on the corner of Washington St. and Nahatan St., distributing the guides to passer-by.
Do take the time to read the rest of the story here, where you will see Elaine being swindled by Sen. Rogers’s Campaign Manager and the two incidents with the police involving the Senator’s mother and father — oh, and the parish priest joining in the thuggery. Roxe’s report is published over at DaTechGuy’s blog and Pete is attempting to do some follow-up reporting, so expect updates to the report.
This type of incident is typical of the tactics being employed by the Left and/or those in power to prevent Americans like us from fighting for what we believe in.
I fear that tomorrow we shall see many such incidents in State Senate and House Districts throughout the country, with some involving violence.
Be armed with your cellphone or regular cameras, or any recording devices [film with sound is best because it proves more].
