When it comes to debating the issues, liberals don’t have things like facts or intelligent opinions at their disposal, but that doesn’t mean their bag of tricks is completely empty. The have profanity, lies, death threats, and when all else fails, violence. A democratic state Rep. in New Hampshire settled a minor disagreement with a Republican election official by smacking her upside the head. I know what you are thinking, “Wow, this democrat probably got in a lot of trouble over this.” Wrong. Liberals never face consequences for their horrible actions, even in this case where the democrat pled guilty to the crime.
The Concord Monitor reports that there was a recount last November in the race between incumbent Democrat Andrew Hosmer and Republican Harold French. As part of the Republican delegation at the recount, Susan Olson was on hand to observe. At one point Olson politely asked the ballot counters to move the ballots so she could see them more clearly.
This is when State Rep. Katherine Rodgers (pictured), who was there as a democratic observer, decided to move from observation to participation. In her mind, Olson was way out of line for making a polite request, so the democrat smacked the Republican on the side of the head.
“She turns to me and grabs me with one hand and starts to lean in to me like she was going to hug me and basically says, ‘You know, well whatever makes you happy.’ Then she clocked me on the side of the head,” said Olson.
Though this story doesn’t have anything to do with gun control, The Concord Monitor makes a point to note that Olson is a gun rights advocate while Rodgers, “has often sponsored gun-control legislation.” The implication is perhaps they had an adversarial relationship over the right to keep and bear arms, which in liberal terms gave the democrat even more of a right to strike a political opponent.
As it turns out, hitting people for no reason is a crime (kind of). Rodgers was charged with assault, though she got a sweet plea deal that only imposed a $1000 fine which will be suspended if she stays out of trouble for a year. She also has to take anger management classes, which I think we can all agree are needed.
According to Rodgers’ attorney however, she merely “touched” Olson.
“Today, Representative Rogers accepted responsibility for touching the other person without her permission,” said attorney William Christie.
Even the lawyers for democrats are lying sacks of crap. Rodgers didn’t take responsibility for “touching” someone, she pled guilty to assault. Touching is not assault unless it is sexual, which this was not. Hell, Rodgers didn’t take responsibility for anything. She got a plea deal that comes with basically no punishment.
The fact that Rodgers is still serving in the New Hampshire state legislature shows how consequence-free this attack was for her. I have to believe if a Republican assaulted an election observer that he or she would no longer have a job.
This just goes to show how liberals are so effective in a debate. They can’t make compelling arguments based on the facts, but they can smack the shit out of people and get away with it.
