McCain Supporter Beaten By Crazed Obamaton

Did the perp come right out and say he was an Obama supporter? Who knows? I'm just practicing my mainstream media skills here, so let's not confuse anything by sticking to the facts, right?

Well, this sure looks like this girl took quite a beating just for having a McCain sticker on her vehicle.
A knife-wielding man robbed a Texas woman and etched a "B" into her face after he saw a John McCain bumper sticker on the woman's car, Pittsburgh police said.

Ashley Todd, 20, of College Station, Texas, was using an ATM at Liberty Avenue and Pearl Street in Bloomfield just before 9 p.m. Wednesday when a man approached her, put a knife to her throat and demanded $60, police said.

Todd handed the man $60 she had in her pocket and stepped away from him, investigators said. The man then noticed the bumper sticker on the woman's car, which was parked in front of the ATM. The man became very angry, made comments to Todd about McCain and punched her in the back of the head, knocking her to the ground, police said.

The man then carved the "B" into Todd's right cheek. Todd, who isn't familiar with the area, drove to a friend's house nearby and told her friend she wasn't sure of the exact location where the robbery took place but remembered a green sign above the ATM. The friend called police and the officer met them on Cypress Street in Bloomfield, police said.

Todd's friend offered to drive her back in the direction she came from to look at ATMs until she found the right one, police said. A police officer followed until Todd pointed out a Citizens Bank ATM at Liberty and Pearl, police said.

Todd declined to comment. Friends said she is in Pittsburgh volunteering for the McCain-Palin campaign.

"We are aware that there was an incident and we are aware of the stories circulating on the Web, but the victim is very shaken up right now, and out of concerns for her privacy, we are not going to confirm if she works for us," said campaign spokesman Peter Feldman.

Police described the suspect as black, about 6-foot-4, and said he was wearing dark-colored jeans and a black undershirt.
Hey, is it racist to mention the suspect is black?

I'll wait breathlessly for the chorus of denunciations from the left over this vicious attack.

I wonder if Reuters will have an in-depth story on the ugly racism faced by white McCain supporters?

Update: Here's another example of the Obama climate of hate sweeping the nation.
A 19-year-old male not affiliated with Marquette pulled a gun on four Marquette students during a physical altercation early Sunday morning, according to the Department of Public Safety.

The wrangle started outside of Murphy's Irish Pub, 1615 W. Wells St., around 2 a.m. when a 21-year-old male Marquette student was struck in the face while holding a "McCain Palin" campaign sign and yelling to vote for John McCain in the upcoming presidential election. The student said he was blindsided when a group of three individuals approached him, though he is not sure exactly which individual hit him.

Minutes later, the student returned to the porch of his home on the 800 block of North 17th Street where he was confronted by the same three men that had assaulted him outside of the bar. Words were exchanged and the spat migrated into the alley behind the victim's house, the victim said.

By that time, three of the victim's friends had heard the fracas and met in the alley. One of the students, a 21-year-old male, said that he wandered into the alley and came face-to-face with two suspects that were holding bricks. One of the suspects launched a brick and hit one of the students, another 21-year-old male, in the face. The suspects took off down the alley and the students chased after them, the victims said.
H/T Colonel Panik.

Not a peep from the Obama camp denouncing any of this stuff. Something to really look forward to in this country.
