Rapid Response Brigades attack in New Orleans! (Updated)

Thats Allee in the middle
That's Allee in the middle

I hate to ask this, but: did any of the Ladies in White suffer concussions and get their legs, jaws and noses broken by their assailants?

During the Southern Republican Leadership Conference this week-end, Allee Bautch, (Republican governor Bobby Jindal’s petite campaign fundraiser) and her boyfriend got all of the above and more.

“They’re wearing Palin pins!” the petite Ms Bautsch heard the attackers yell as they prepared to pounce. “Let’s get ’em!”

Entire Republican intransigence here.

And you will never in a million, gazillion, trillion years guess who some of these “protestors” sported on their t-shirts! Check out the video!


Update (Val): Michelle Malkin is reporting in her latest update that there were no Palin Pins involved. However, this does not mean that the victims weren’t attacked for their political ideologies, there were numerous protests at the SLRC, with the usual anarchist crazies and such. Will follow up, stay tuned.

(Update, Humberto) New evidence points to the attacks being INDEED “politically-motivated.” No robbery took place, plus:

“I am the photographer for the LA GOP and I was at the Brennan fundraiser. When I left about one hour or so after all 3 of the governors left the crowd of protesters had grown. They were very nasty….As I left the restaurant I was yelled at – there was a family visiting the restaurant with a baby stroller – they had nothing to do with the fundraiser and they were being heckled using the “F” and “MF” words.”

Linked below is a pic of the protester bunch in front of Brennans Restaurant, from where the beating victims emerged. The bunch looks identical to the protester bunch earlier in front of the Hilton with the Che t-shirt….same signs, etc.

Entire updated intransigence here.

  1. Son of a bitch. Yeah, it’s war, baby.

    MSNBC’s line-up will be right on top of this one …

    (Do I really need to say /sarc?)

  2. My guy just got off the phone with Jindal’s office.

    Looks like a “no” on the pins, but they were not easily giving up any new info. I imagine a couple factors involved here in trying to ‘measure’ what’s allowed into the media on this.

    Of course New Orleans ‘safety’ reputation

    I heard a rumor, and my guy asked but was chuckled at, that Jindal is hoping the RNC has a future convention down in N.O. (however, I thought Hawaii was on their radar for that … dunno).

    Anyhow, I have tapped my source in N.O. for what he’s hearing from his sources down there. Haven’t seen him around for a few days (he’s in the oil industry so might be traveling on business). Will let you know if he has anything else.

  3. Maggie, I fully understand the caution in blogging this matter. We’ve got “official” press releases on one hand–and a local blog on the other. Jindal, though a Republican, is still essentially a Louisiana politician (I know some staffers.) Most tellingly, though he jumped all over Gov. Blanco in 2005 for her Cuba trip, one of his last acts as Congressman was to vote alongside Charlie Rangel, Flake, etc. for easing the “embargo.” (Louisiana rice growers want this, you see)

    At any rate when his press guy said: “NOPD (New Orleans Police Dept.) is investigating the incident and we are refraining from further comment to allow them to fully investigate and ensure justice is done,” most Louisianians exploded in bitter mirth.

    Here’s the NOPD and looting after Katrina–you’ll note it’s the NOPD DOING the looting!


    At any rate, for the scoop on this mugging matter, I’d periodically consult:


  4. Humberto –

    Thanks for the link. Saved it.

    Well, I trust you and my N.O. buddy know ‘everything’ about the N.O. and La. political beasts down there.

  5. Oh, PS, Humberto –

    My buddy told me Jindal was sorta kinda behind the “Louisiana Purchase”.

    Hmmmmmmmmm …

  6. Well, I do … but I’m gonna do a Forrest Gump and say, “That’s all I’m gonna say about that …”

    Sometimes that whole, ‘under penalty of death’ thing … ya know?
