A witness from the scene says a man was walking through the anti-reform group to get to the pro-reform side when he got into an altercation with the 65-year-old, who opposes health care reform.
The 65-year-old was apparently aggressive and hit the other man, who then retaliated by biting off his attacker’s pinky, according to Karoli from DrumsnWhistles.
The man took his finger and walked to Los Robles hospital for treatment.
Now, although I generally don’t support biting off the appendages of other people, freaky shit may happen when someone attacks you. Now, despite the fact that the biter was assaulted by the other man, three guesses how the usual suspects are spinning this.
Pro-ObamaCare protester reportedly was making his way through a crowd of people opposing ObamaCare and when tempers flared, wound up biting the finger off a man. The man picked up his finger and went to an area hospital. Police are reportedly looking for the attacker, who fled the scene.
Now, I suppose when you support preventatively invading another country because people from a completely different country attacked you, your perception of aggressor vs. victim may be a little bit off. But leaving out the part where Nino Nine-Fingers punched the other guy seems a bit excessive. At least Bush pretended there was usable uranium. This is just sad.
Gateway Pundit is, well, special. First, look at the following URL: http://gatewaypundit.blogspot.com/2009/09/moveonorg-supporter-loses-finger-after.html. Now, look at this post title:
MoveOn.org Thug Bites Off Protester’s Finger At Obamacare Rally!
I’m pretty sure that ol’ GP wrote a celebratory post about some dirty liberal losing his pinko finger to the strong, sturdy teeth that only freedom and private dental insurance can buy, then actually read the story, realized he was totally wrong, and still stuck with the same point. It’s pretty much how Hayek did it, too.
Don Surber sells it as the story of newly piranha’ed Obamacare fascists taking the fingers of people who oppose them, because that makes sense.
Police in Thousand Oaks, California are investigating whether a MoveOn thug bit off the pinky of a man who dared voice opposition to Obamacare at a MoveOn event, KTLA reported.
That is one way of showing people that they need Obamacare.
But I thought Obamacare was supposed to reduce emergency room visits.
Well, Barack Obama told his supporters “to get in the face” of anyone who dares oppose him. Gateway Pundit also recalled Obama saying: “If they bring a knife… we bring a gun.”
The Lefty Reaction to this attempted cannibalism? He was provoked.
Yes, a 65-year-old man is such a threat.
Apparently, Don is not familiar with Jack Lalanne. But yes, truly, when someone punches you in the face and then, per an eyewitness report, puts you in some sort of lock, they are simply acting to protect themselves from the undeniable Ozomba urge to consume human flesh.
There’s one ironclad rule of right-wing extremism: it’s not extremism until the person did something undeniably wrong, at which point it’s not right-wing. I predict the whole thing is called “staged” within 24 hours. People don’t even have pinkies anymore – have you seen the Simpsons? Ever?
