New Orleans: Republican Activist savagely beaten for Palin Pin

The mainstream Media fails once again.  While making every phone call, letter, or tweet and issue for Democrats, when a conservative gets savagely beaten for exercising his first amendment rights by wearing a Sarah Palin pin the media doesn’t say a word.  Just doesn’t fit in the happy loving caring liberal box.
Gateway Pundit,  who got hit by Media Matters for America for quoting the Free Republic,  reported it this way

A Republican activist and her boyfriend were savagely beaten in New Orleans on Friday for wearing Sarah Palin pins.
Free Republic reported:
Allee Bautsch, chief campaign fundraiser for Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, and her boyfriend Joe Brown, were savagely beaten Friday night in New Orleans after leaving a Republican party fundraising dinner by a group of thugs who reportedly targeted the couple because they were wearing Sarah Palin pins.
Bautch’s leg was broken and Brown incurred a broken jaw and nose as well as a concussion.
The Hayride reports that a source who visited Bautsch at the hospital the day after the attack says they were told the couple was attacked for wearing Palin buttons:
Two people at the Brennan’s event have now confirmed that the protest had largely broken up by the time it ended, but we also understand from someone who visited Allee Bautsch in the hospital Saturday morning that she and Brown were followed and attacked expressly because they had Palin pins on (she heard one of the attackers say “Let’s get them, they have Palin pins on” – so the attack WAS politically motivated as its victims understood it. It was not a mugging, it was not an argument gone wrong and it was not a bar fight.
The story of a Republican and her boyfriend being viciously attacked for wearing Palin buttons has yet to make national headlines, unlike say, unfounded rumors of nasty words being said by Tea Party protesters.

UPDATE: They are still investigating the violent attack–

Friday night, the Governor’s campaign fundraiser, Allee Bautsch, and her boyfriend were involved in an altercation in the French Quarter with a group of people.
While there were protestors around at that time, we are not aware of any evidence that the individuals involved in the altercation were protestors.
Allee’s leg was badly broken in the incident, she has had surgery, and she is facing a recovery time of two to three months. Her boyfriend had a concussion, and also a fractured nose and jaw. They are both expected to fully recover.
NOPD is investigating the incident and we are refraining from further comment to allow them to fully investigate and ensure justice is done. Our prayers are with Allee. She is a strong person and we are sure she will make a speedy recovery.

  1. The political intimidation motive of the savages that viciously beat Allee Bautsch, Governor Jindal’s Financial Director, and her friend Joe Brown has been confirmed in an interview of an NOPD information officer relaying information from one of the case’s detectives:
    “Breaking: Exclusive New Orleans Beat-Down Update Via My Interview With The NOPD – “It Was Of A Political Nature”
    This is a truly heinous crime of political intimidation by Democrats and other Leftists. This nice young couple was just working hard for a Governor and the ideas that they believe in at SRLC, and the Democrats and other Leftists beat them so severely that their surgeons estimate a three month recovery.
    Take a good look at those pictures and ask yourself: Can you ever again see any Democrat or other Leftist public figure that has not owned that their own broke Allee and Joe’s bones, condemned the attackers and their cohorts, and apologized without also seeing these pictures in your mind and thinking that they are just a little complicit?
    I never will!

  2. Because a Conservative gets beat-up for wearing a Palin Pin Media Matters for America has to protect their own by denying the story is true
    Gateway Pundit’s fact-free claim was that a young GOP fundraiser and her boyfriend were “savagely beaten for wearing Palin pins” over the weekend in New Orleans. And what was Gateway Pundit’s source for the “Palin pins” scoop? That bastion of journalism, Free Republic.
