Obama supporter attacked, media silent

October 26, 2008 — 3 Comments

You’ve got to admit, the double standards here are staggering…but then again, this incident didn’t include a 20 yr old white girl and a big dyslexic black man….

Yes to Democracy

Who’s Nancy Takehara you ask? Not surprising, it’s not like she’s a 20-something McCain campaigner with mental issues.

No, Ms. Takehara is the 58-year old campaigner for Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign that WAS attacked for real last weekend.

Her attacker was 71-year old Ronald Goetsch. While going door-to-door campaigning, Ms. Takehara went to Mr. Goetsch’s door. Mr. Goetsch is a McCain supporter and contributor.

Quote:

?¢‚Ǩ?ìThe next thing I know he?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s telling us we?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢re not his people, we?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢re probably with ACORN, and he started screaming and raving,?¢‚Ǩ¬ù Takehara said. ?¢‚Ǩ?ìHe grabbed me by the back of the neck. I thought he was going to rip my hair out of my head. He was pounding on my head and screaming. The man terrified me.?¢‚Ǩ¬ù

Mr. Goetsch later admitted to the incident.

Let me repeat that, Nancy Takehara’s attacker, Ronald Goetsch, **ADMITTED** he attacked her

Guess a fruit loop makes for better tv.

  1. Are you really trying to say the media is biased to McCain? Come on.

    I really don't think either incident deserved any media, but I don't think half of what the media put out is relevant to the election, they are CLEARLY taking sides, and I question the ethics in doing so.

    The media “should” report the facts, not political rhetoric that is clearly aimed at getting one candidate elected. It has probably been my biggest turn off of this election.

    While there are channels (Fox) who are biased to McCain, the majority of the media are supporting Obama. Newspapers are endorsing Obama. Radio channels only play commercials from Democratic candidates.

    I am trying my best to decipher truth from rhetoric, and I can't see through the fog of BS.
