Political Violence in America

Two staffers of Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindahl were assaulted last week while walking home from a Republican political fund raiser, sending both to the hospital. The attack appears to be politically motivated; some reports indicate that the two were targetted merely because they wore Sarah Palin pins.

This story has been flying under the radar nationally, with the MSM considering it mostly a Louisiana-local issue and hence not of their concern. But once again, you can't help but think that had these two individuals been Democrats who were beaten up for wearing Obama pins, you can bet it would have made national headlines within hours. However, the story is starting to go viral; lots of libertarian and conservative activists are now finding out about it, and they are getting hopping mad.
