The Peaceful left: War Protesters Savagely Beat Iraq War Veteran and his Family

Dan Maloney of the N.Y.G.O.E filed this report that should prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the supposed “peace movement” is nothing more than a collection of anti-America nihilists with violent Communist groups pulling the stings. From the Gathering of Eagles website:

Edinboro, PA, Apr. 22

For the second time in as many weeks, an Iraq War Veteran and his family held a Support the Troops rally across the street from the weekly “peace” protest in this college town. This week the true nature of the ‘peace’ activists was revealed for all to see. When the veteran’s 14 year old son crossed the street to videotape the protesters and their signs, the protesters became agitated and began harassing the boy. The right to record video in any public venue is long established in law and any attempt to interfere with that right is a violation of civil rights.

Seeing the escalating tension across the street, the veteran and his wife crossed over, leaving their three youngest children on the other side for safety while they went to retrieve their eldest son. Two of the female ‘peace’ protesters then attacked the veteran’s wife. When the veteran pulled one of those attackers off his wife he was jumped by four or five of the ‘peace’ people and knocked to the ground where they held him while beating him and smashing his eyeglasses.

The son pulled the remaining attacker off his mother, but the attacker managed to get in one last kick to his mother’s head with her boot. She then punched the son in his face while his mother called the police.

This all took place at a busy intersection, the mother had been knocked into the street in bumper to bumper traffic. People were visible in the windows of shops and a bar nearby. One might think someone would intervene to put a stop to the assault. One would be wrong. In a scene eerily reminiscent of the Kitty Genovese tragedy in New York, the bystanders and passers-by refused to stand up to the ‘peace’ thugs. Displaying a craven cowardice one would not have expected in middle America they would rather go on their way thankful that it was not them being assaulted. It was NOT them, today, but what about tomorrow?

When the police arrived they reviewed the video of the incident and then, astonishingly, refused to make any arrests, even when one of the ‘peace’ thugs spit in the face of on the 14 year old boy right in front of the police and they did nothing! Officers, that is an assault! I don’t know where or how they train police in Edinboro but they obviously need some refresher courses!

One of the police was very aggressive toward the veteran and his family as if they were the attackers!

Dan goes on to remind us of the veteran who was shot by an anti-war protester last 4th of July and the infamous Times Square bombing.

Via Gateway Pundit you can read an email from the woman who was attacked at This Ain’t Hell. The email details the injuries of the victims and the police inaction, a trend it seems as we are reminded by John Lilyea that Skye from Midnight Blue was attacked by a male protester at a “peace” rally and a group of Freepers were assaulted in D.C. at a protest. All of which were witnessed by police.

The man that slapped Skye twice was college professor John Meicht. One would expect better from an educated man but this case shows expecting civilized behavior from those who spend their lives on a college campus is a sure way to complete disappointment.

The peaceful left is a myth. The left is a collection of miscreants who hate this country not for any real reason, but because they need something to hate. A 14-year-old boy and his mother assaulted in front of her three other children! Where is the outrage?

The phone number for the Edinboro Police department is (814) 734-1712 if you’d like to voice your concerns at the piss poor handling of this situation.

Update: A reader wanted to know more about the John Meicht incident, here’s video of the attack courtesy of Skye, who’s the one holding the camera:


Update: Gateway Pundit has more first hand info on the assault from Carrie Swartout, the woman attacked by the “peace” protesters.

Update: Gathering of Eagles has information on the assailants. Though they haven’t released the names, they have stated that the two of the men involved are assistant professors at Edinboro University!
