We have elected the most divisive president in our history, a professional rabble-rouser (a.k.a. “community organizer”) known for remarks like “I want you to get in their face” and “they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.” Now that he may soon be voted out of our lives at last, things are getting even uglier. A statement from Wisconsin State Senator Neal Kedzie:
Early on Friday morning, October 19th, my son Sean was awakened by noises outside his residence in Whitewater. As he went to see what the commotion was about, he noticed an individual removing a Romney/Ryan yard sign from his property. He yelled to the person that they were taking something not theirs and to return it immediately.
The individual returned the sign, however, a second person confronted and attacked Sean without warning.
Sean was wrestled to the ground by both persons, held down by a constricting chokehold, and struck repeatedly about the face and head.
He nearly passed out from the chokehold and suffered contusions to his face and eyes.
Fortunately, an alert neighbor heard the commotion, scared the individuals away, and called the police.
Good thing we haven’t yet reached the stage where calling the police would just mean the neighbor gets a beating too.
Ever get lost in an unfamiliar part of town, turn down an ominous alley and realize you really shouldn’t have come this way? That’s were America is. Fortunately we still have a chance to turn back.
