Last week we learned about one of Governor Bobby Jindal’s staff and her boyfriend were attacked after leaving a restaurant on the last day of SRLC. At the time a rumor developed that they were attacked because they were wearing Palin pins. The rumor turned out to be false, but the impression that the attacks were politically motivated remained.
Today the mother of that staffer says that anti-SRLC protesters were the perpetrators.
Human Events: The mother of one of the victims of a brutal beating in New Orleans outside of a Southern Republican Leadership Conference (SRLC) event has confirmed in a new interview that the two victims assaulted outside of the high-dollar GOP fundraiser believe their attackers were part of the crowd of protesters outside the event.
The assailants were described as five Caucasian males, the main assailant looking “dirty” (but not homeless), with dark red ponytail and a beard.
During her first interview with Fox News (reported and transcribed in full on HUMAN EVENTS) Bautsch’s mother, Della Berning, confirmed reports of the political nature of the attacks but was reluctant to discuss that aspect of the assault.
In her latest interview with Yahoo News (via The Hayride, h/t Pat Dollard) Berning went a bit further, saying her daughter Bautsch and her daughter’s boyfriend, Brown, believe the attackers were a group of political protesters who followed them after they left the GOP event.
And they are not alone. [MORE]
The Tennessee Conservative has a bunch of photos of the protesters. He even has a photo that could be the dirty looking ponytail guy.
As Bill Clinton talks out his behind about Tea Party rhetoric possibly inciting violence, he really should be talking to his own people on his side of the fence. Look at this sign from the anti-SRLC protest. You don’t see stuff that explicit at any of the Tea Parties.
