Another Violent Liberal

Only this one is US Representative Bob Etheridge from North Carolina.

I think he’s worried about something.


Washington, DC, Jun 14 – U.S. Rep. Bob Etheridge (D-Lillington) released the following statement on the viral video which appeared on the internet today:

“I have seen the video posted on several blogs. I deeply and profoundly regret my reaction and I apologize to all involved. Throughout my many years of service to the people of North Carolina, I have always tried to treat people from all viewpoints with respect. No matter how intrusive and partisan our politics can become, this does not justify a poor response. I have and I will always work to promote a civil public discourse.”

Rep. Bob Etheridge (NC-02)

AH! It’s the intrusive and partisan politics that’s to blame.

I bet someone introduces a bill making it illegal to video politicians.

    Hah! Smartass little punk. Of course this is just the same as the tea party assholes and the right wingers who have killed and threatened people. yup. Just the same. Dumbass.

    Amazingly enough, Etheridge is from NC’s 2nd district, which contains all the yankee infested urban liberal areas in the state that aren’t Charlotte.

    I swear, NC has the most comically jerrymandered congressional districts in the entire Union.

    hmm, and here I thought asking people for ID was racist.

  6. Bobby says:

    Wow. That raised my hackles like hell. Im glad I wasnt in the poor kids situation.

    Darwin- are you on these peoples side because you think in some foolish way fighting for them now will protect you from them later? NO person of sound mind should ever defend actions like that of Etheridge here.

    Is he always like that? Looks a little on the drunk side to me.

    But So doe Biden…

    I might have let him get away with grabbing my arm – even after slapping the camera away – because I would have been the one who approached him in a potentially hostile fashion, but grabbing the back of my neck like that would have resulted in him pulling back a broken arm. Especially after having been told to let go of me.

    Regardless of the appropriateness of the student’s approach, his actions did not rise to the level of justifying any physical contact, much less forcible restraint. The Senator needs to be charged with assault and battery, at the very least.

    This footage should also be broadcast far and wide every time he is up for reelection.

  9. Jake says:

    Oops, hit submit too soon.

    Bobby: If this is the same Darwin that’s been posting at SayUncle’s, he strikes me as being a troll. I’ve taken to ignoring him.

  10. anon says:

    Wow. I don’t care who he was, if he had touched me like that i would have broken his nose.

    W00t for trolls!

    The scumbag authoritarian laid hands on an American citizen without permission or consent. He should treat the fact that he escaped without some portion of his anatomy being broken as a Godsend, and his staff of lawyers is probably more than a little pissed off at him at the moment – as they rightfully should. I sincerely hope whoever filmed this incident stopped off at the police department and dropped off a copy of the footage, along with signing the appropriate charges paperwork… not that it will unfortunately make a darned bit of diference.

  12. John Smith says:

    Wow, so the congressman thinks that he can assault and physically restrain someone off the street who asks him a question. Nice. The guys filming him made no threats nor used off color language yet he reacts like a paranoid delusional. He has no right to know who anyone is. He broke the law. I would not have been as forgiving as those kids if a congressional representative grabbed me like that. Think finger splints.

    The congresscritter looks soused, frankly. I wonder what pedigree of libation was served at the Pelosi fundraiser? Bet it was Dom. Or maybe he was hitting the hard stuff.

    I’d say he’s definitely drunk on power Phlegmmy.

  16. J Richardson says:

    Must have learned his student relationship skills from when he was Superintendent of Public Instruction in North Carolina.

    Translation: “I deeply regret that this got caught on camera. Damn proles.”
