Violent Obama Supporters Attack Republican Campaign Office


Daniel Cason Meinecke, 29, and Cara Annis Hindman, 26 were arrested after a bizarre attack on several older GOP campaign workers in Galax Virginia which started when the pair demanded the Republicans give them Obama signs. When asked politely to leave the pair assaulted the workers, and pepper sprayed everyone in the office including an elderly woman:

Two people were arrested Monday afternoon after an altercation led to five Republican campaign workers being sprayed with Mace at their headquarters in Galax.

Galax Police Chief Rick Clark said officers were dispatched shortly before 1 p.m. to the Galax Republican headquarters on East Grayson Street when a caller reported someone had sprayed office workers with Mace.

Responding officers arrested Daniel Cason Meinecke, 29, and Cara Annis Hindman, 26, both of Galax.

Meinecke was charged with one count of misdemeanor assault, Hindman was charged with five counts of misdemeanor assault.

Galax Republican Chairman Mike Stevens said he was one of the volunteers sprayed. He said a man and woman came into the office and asked for campaign yard signs for the Democratic ticket of Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

After being told the Obama-Biden campaign office was up the street, Stevens said, the man said he was aware of that, but that he thought Democratic signs were being stolen and “stashed” at the Republican office.

Stevens told him that nobody there had stolen signs, not were they “stashing” any in the building.

A confrontation escalated and, Stevens said, the man began to use some four-letter words.

Stevens said there were older women in the office and he asked the couple to leave the building.

“With the ladies in the office, I said that was enough and asked them to leave,” he said. “I told them, if they had a problem with someone stealing their signs they needed to contact the police department.”

Stevens said the couple replied that they weren’t leaving, and that they didn’t have to.

“I kind of moved them towards the door and he lashed out at me,” Stevens said. “So I lashed out at him.”

No punches were thrown, but instead the two simply held each other at bay, according to Stevens.

Once outside, Stevens said, the woman sprayed Mace on him and another volunteer before turning back to the office and spraying inside the building.

“It was surreal in the fact that I’ve had people in the past couple months come in and ask for signs. But to have an altercation like that just seems strange.”

While Stevens was unsure if the couple came into the building planning to start an altercation, he said it seemed evident they were.

“There was no business that this gentleman had to do in the office. We didn’t do anything… We didn’t steal his signs. The people in the building were a 75- and 71-year-old man and their respective wives… they aren’t out there stealing signs.”

Stevens said he felt the man just came to the headquarters to agitate office volunteers and that he had no reason to enter the building.

“I can’t say they came there for that purpose. But it seemed that it was to come in and agitate. When he started cussing, that’s when I felt it was time for them to go out of the way and go on down the road.”

Hmmm. You think drugs were involved? This would be outrageous behavior from teens, but a 29-year-old man and his 26-year-old gutterslut? Clearly an attempt to intimidate voters and an indication that the two need to re-examine their lives.

Here’s a video report of the attack:


Arm yourselves. I expect the election night violence to massive.

  1. I kind of get the feeling that Obama supporters, at least the violent ones like these two are getting ideas from what supporters of Obama’s allege cousin Raila Odinga did when Raila didn’t win the Kenyan elections. There was extreme election violence, which then prompted the ruling Kenyan government to agree to hold Raila’s party involved in the ruling coalition.

    Seems like the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree when you get radical violent supporters like this. Either way, I expect these brand of extremists would still riot even if Obama does win.

  2. “I agree. My wife and I are make preparations for election night assuming that no matter who wins there will be violence.”

    I think if Obama wins, Democrats can no longer be able to blame Bush or Republicans for the mess his policies have created. Maybe McCain may deserve to loose this time around for his Not-So-Conservative career in the Senate and now acting more like a chameleon saying that he is such a thing.

    But even by some chance he does win, the McCain-Palin Derange Syndome is going to be worse than the Bush Derange Syndrome. I just don’t want poor Sarah Palin to suffer anymore from Obama’s unofficial propagandists. See how his propagandists feel when his policies tank the country I say.

  3. This is not how it happened. He was assaulted, and she was trying to defend him. The wind “maced” everyone around.

    This story is so one-side it’s sickening.

    They aren’t on drugs, and the reason for the disheveled ‘look’ is because they had been w/o water for two days and had been trying to repair the line themselves. Hence, no showers, etc….

    ALL media is biased be it right, left, or middle.

  4. Are you trying to claim people who don’t have water in their house but have the time to go accuse senior citizens of stealing from them aren’t on drugs? Really?

    I’ll put money on the fact that they smoke pot and the girl has done meth/coke at least once. I will further put money on the fact that their water was shut off after they didn’t pay the bill when they used that money for drugs.

    And why don’t you tell me why a strapping 29-year-old needs his old lady to defend him from 70-year-old Republicans?
