The following stop-action photos demonstrate, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that: (a) Valle's account was a complete fabrication; (b) she easily might have been charged with assault; and (c) had she tried doing so with a Secret Service detail, she could have ended up dead.
Here is a photographic sequence, thankfully not Zapruder-esque in outcome, that depicts Valle's bizarre behavior.
Paul's SUV pulls up to the crowd.
Paul is seated in the front right passenger seat and his window is rolled down.
Wearing a disguise, Valle (in red and wearing a blond wig) runs toward Paul carrying one or more signs.
The sign goes into Paul's window.
An observant Paul supporter rushes the woman while she jams the sign in Paul's face.
Before being restrained, the sign is flipped and she again tries to push the sign into Paul's face.
She's pushed away.
Here's the same sequence in a tighter camera angle.
You can clearly see that the paid leftist twice jammed her sign into Paul's face, which likely qualifies as assault.
Paul is seen here, moments later, closing his car window.
...as the video clearly demonstrates, Valle was there to do more than simply “hold a sign,” and Paul supporters were not reacting to a mere dislike of her message.
As we noted at the beginning of the article, none of that is any excuse, nor even mitigating circumstances, when it comes to Profitt stomping on Valle’s head.
However, what it does demonstrate is that the idea that Valle was the victim of an angry mob who simply “didn’t like her message” is demonstrably false. The idea that Rand Paul’s supporters are a rabid single-minded, conspiratorial crew is also demonstrably false.
So please, condemn head-stomping. Condemn violence. But don’t let the media and the left create a fiction of violent mobs of right-wingers. They’ve been pitching that line since the health care town hall meetings last summer. It has yet to be true.
I wonder what would have happened if some right-wing extremist had tried shoving a "Change" sign into the face of either Obama, Pelosi or Reid?
Somehow I don't think the left or the right would defend that behavior. But that's the difference between the two sides of the political spectrum.
When it comes to the left, the end always justifies the means.
