social network for conservatives
According to Nick Penzenstadler at postcrescent.com, during an event supporting Mitt Romney that featured State Senator Alberta Darling, and Lt. Governor Rebecca Kliefisch, 83 year-old protester Mary Hogland interrupted Senator Darling while she was speaking to ask her why Republicans opposed Planned Parenthood. A Romney supporter, who declined to give her name to reporters, began arguing with Hogland and Mary spit in her face. On the video taken by Nick Penzenstadler, the Romney supporter could clearly be seen slapping Ms. Hogland a couple of times. No news of filed charges is presently available.

This incident comes on the heels of the Family Research Council Shooting in which Floyd Lee Corkins II, approached security guard and building manager Leo Johnson while carrying a back pack full of Chik-Fil-A sandwiches and ammunition, and stated, "I don't like your politics." and opened fire. Leo was wounded, but went way beyond the call of duty and managed to wrestle Corkins to the ground. At the online publication Patheos.com, Max Lindenman, declared August 18th, "Security Guard Appreciation Day." According to Eric Tucker and Ben Nuchols of The Huffington Post, president of the Family Research Council Tony Perkins gave liberals a dose of their own rhetoric by asserting, "Corkins was given a license to shoot an unarmed man by organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center that have been reckless in labeling organizations as hate groups because they disagree with them on public policy."
This incident also comes after Tony Perkins landed a haymaker of a punchline on Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Emanuel had said, "Chik-Fil-A does not represent the values of the city of Chicago."
At the "Under God Indivisible" event held by Christian Conservatives at High Point Church in Arlington Texas on Friday, August 27th, Mr. Perkins characterized the Chicago Mayor perfectly when he surmised, " I agree with Mayor Emanuel. Chik-Fil-A does their business OVER THE COUNTER. Mayor Emanuel and his friends in Chicago do their business UNDER THE TABLE."
