This was a blowing up into a huge story earlier today on Memeorandum. It was mostly fueled by the rumor that the Jindal staffer and her boyfriend were wearing Palin pins. By this evening, after the blogosphere calmed down, here is what we know.
Michelle Malkin: This much is clear: Bautsch and her boyfriend were seriously beaten and injured after leaving a fund-raising event held during the Southern Republican Leadership Conference.
The New Orleans Times-Picayune said they were involved in an alteractionwith a “group of people” on Friday night.
Louisiana blog The Hayride has tracked all the developments since the incident took place and notes that the SRLC had attracted large groups of anarchists and other liberal grievance-mongers to protest the GOP gathering.
It is currently unknown if anyone from the liberal protest is to blame for the beatings. It is also known that Bautsch and her boyfriend were not wearing Palin pins.
So as things stand now the cause of this incident is still unknown. It could be another violent New Orleans crime or it could be liberal hate in action. Should it be the latter, conservatives should not hold back shoving this into the left’s face given their collective push to blame all hate on the right.
