    The only surprising thing about the attack on Althouse

    The only surprising thing about the attack on Althouse

    One of the usual anti-Scott Walker suspects hanging outside the Wisconsin State Capitol in Madison didn’t like the fact that Ann Althouse was filming the moonbats tooting their horns, so he decided to try to grab the camera from her, grabbed her as well, and in the attempt was pulled off by Althouse’s son.

    Nothing surprising here.  Thuggery has been the modus operandi at the Madison Capitol for months, with Republican state senators chased down both individually and as a group.  Althouse and others also have received threats.

    When the police finally showed up, they threated to arrest not the perp but Althouse’s son.

    Nothing surprising here.  The police unions openly sided with protesters, the Dane County Sheriff announced that his officers would not act as “palace guards,” and there was widespread police tolerance of mob rule.

    So, all in all, there was nothing surprising to me about the incident.  Except for one thing.

    I thought Althouse was taller:


    Donations tax deductible
    to the full extent allowed by law.


    […] and hate-tactics being promulgated by the “progressives” in this country, we may be headed that way. For example, Wisconsin pundit and citizen reporter was attacked yesterday. This potential threat […]

    I thought her reaction to the “attack” was a little studied. Didn’t quite ring true, to me, but that might be just because she was surprised. And I’m thinking with all that’s going/gone on in Madison this year, maybe a little naive?

    Definitely could use somebody else to rely on for site security besides Wisconsin LEO’s. They seem to be in the tank for the Dhims, so prudence suggests one make other arrangements.

    LukeHandCool might consider most good video set-ups provide clearer/more usable segments and recordings than many hand-held cell phones being waved in one’s face, even though the real cameras are positioned a more discrete – and defensible – distance from the subjects being recorded. So unless one wants to wave a red flag at a bull, the cell phone camera seems better suited for inanimate objects, not cantankerous and spontaneous individuals. Just saying.

      More likely that she wasn’t surprised. These sorts of things have happened enough that if you go to film a left wing rally, you need to expect them and prepare accordingly.

    I am more and more conscious of the growing necessity to exercise my right to keep and bear arms. I live in an open carry state and with all the violence coming from the left I am not longer sure I can count on the police to keep the peace.

    I cannot believe what has happened in this nation in the last 20 years…

    “I thought Althouse was taller”

    The thugs will no doubt learn she’s tall enough. The police too, if they aren’t careful.

    I wish Gov. Walker had the Republican Congress, strip the public unions completely from the public civil service Police Force, the Fire dept, altogether, period.

    If they do want to serve the public, then they can leave, period.!!!
