07 Aug 2009 More Beer at White House? Not Likely
A black conservative activist reportedly was attacked outside a Town Hall meeting in Missouri yesterday by a man who called him a racial slur.
Outside [a town hall meeting held by Rep. Russ Carnahan, D-MO], conservative activist Kenneth Gladney handed out yellow flags with “Don’t tread on me” printed on them and was, he said, attacked. “He spoke to the Post-Dispatch from the emergency room at St. John’s Mercy Medical Center, where he said he was awaiting treatment for injuries to his knee, back, elbow, shoulder and face. Gladney, who is black, said one of his attackers, also a black man, used a racial slur against him before the attack.
“‘It just seems there’s no freedom of speech without being attacked,’ he said.”
Don’t look for the White House to intervene in this case.
