The video clearly shows the woman being wrestled to the ground and her wig being pulled off. It also shows a man stepping on her shoulder and pushing down with his foot; then someone yells "no, no, come on" and the man backs off.

Question: 1st of all there was no reason for the man to step on her shoulder! Why was the woman trying to disquise herself? Why did she feel compelled to approach Ron Paul in the disquise? With the president calling the opposition the "enemy" was it possible they though she was a terrorist trying to hurt Ron Paul? And why was she there representing Moveon.org a far left progressive group if not to disrupt, impune, and be able to run to the media saying she was the victim?

Those who are supporters of the conservative movement must remember ... do not stoop to the level of the progressives, i.e. moveon.org , tides, etc. They are only interested in causing riots with the intent of intimidating people who don't agree with their position. We must respect their rights to protest while protecting the conservative candidates from being hurt, using the least amount of force possible!

I watched the video and with about four big guys pushing a small woman to the ground a fifth decided to come over and step on her head a couple of times after she had been completely subdued. Stay classy Kentucky.

Wigged Lib Goes for Paul

Raleigh, NC

Headline should read "Disguised Liberal Goes for Paul". What happened may be true but a moveon follower is disguised, has a fake award and heads towards a candidate?
Please at least try to save what little journalistic dignity might be remaining.
Take down that woman equally just like any man - remember Squeeky Fromme? We are told women are liberated and she could be a psycho-assasin just like any man. Do we wait to find out what weapon she may use?
Now if there is belated pile-on than make short note of it but don't make it seem like she is an innocent victim. She went in a disguise to an opposition rally and then heads for the candidate.

Obviously she was trying to rankle him a bit as he was going into the debate. In disguise? She didn't want anyone to know who she was? If she had tried to approach the president the results would have been way worse. She probably would have been put in restraints and interrogated for a few hours. What a nut case. While I don't agree with all Paul says, he is fresh blood and has good intentions. Even that today in this political climate is refreshing.

Yeah, blame the victim.

All of you conservatives caterwauling about freedom of speech until it impinges on your beliefs. Where were you when Andrew Briebart perpetrated his stunts?

The violence from the right far exceeds that coming from the left. Using false equivalencies about violence that happened in the 60s and 70s ain't gonna cut it.

And Rand Paul completely changed his style and intentions after meeting with Karl Rove. I watched the debate last night. He is well coached with republican memes.

She was in disguise. She was a security risk. What else was she concealing? She's lucky she wasn't arrested.

It was an uncalled for assault on this woman. It is unfortunate that the title of this thread says her Head was stepped on. After reviewing the video, it is clearly her shoulder that is pushed down. And it will probably never be prosecuted. I seriously doubt she's going to return to Kentucky from her home state of Massachussetts to testify against this idiot who needs to be prosecuted. Which begs another question: Why did this woman come to Kentucky to try to stir stuff up? And nobody is talking about the Paul supporter whose injured foot was stomped at the same event. It just goes to show supporters on both sides will do whatever they want to do to either "help" their candidate or punish the opposition supporters. Why don't we have the option to vote "Neither, find someone else"? What happened to civility and mutual respect? I can't wait for this election to be over.

Clearly this is undeniable proof that all republicans are in fact racist. Why else would the redneck immediately go for a "curb-stomp".

The race card has been overplayed. Time to try something else.

Why haven't we heard about the SEIU thugs that beat up the black Republican?

Please give some examples to prove your claim violence from the right far exceeds that of the left. I disagree with you.

Now if you can convince Obama to stop calling people who don't agree with him "the enemy" or bigoted or racist...or when you can stop George Soros and his minions, moveon.org , Tides, etc as well as the unions from inciting and intimidating we will be well on our way to civil discourse on the issues.

Lauren Valle is a well known radical on the extreme far left. So, why was she in Kentucky wearing a fake blonde wig, carrying a fake sign/award to try and humiliate Rand Paul, if not to create a stir?
Who paid her travel expenses to KY? I think we can see who No-way Conway's supporters are now. MoveOn, Green Peace, George Soros are all the type of organizations we could expect to benefit from Jack Conway as Senator.
Just remember who has the ties to radical extremists on Election Day!

With all the negative and hateful propaganda and unprofesstional manner that Rand Paul and the republican party has dished out in the last few months, why would anyone be surprised at this behavior? Have we all forgotten that she had the same right to be there as the Rand Paul supportors? For those of you who don't know it is within her first amendment rights to protest or support or wear a wig to do so. I too watched the video and find the behavior of the men involved barbaric and uncivilized. How embarrassing for the state of KY that we have come to this. Also a word of advise for all you so called "tea partiers"....be very careful by thinking or ASSuming that Rand Paul is respresenting you. He will be Mitch McConnell's lap dog and will be an ineffective representative of this state. I would say that this is not the last contraversial thing that happens surrounding him!!! Now that I think of it....not the first either!!!
