An Astroturfer Shows Obamunist Class

Everett Wilkinson of the South Florida Tea Party reports on events outside Congressman Tom Rooney's town hall meeting in Stuart, FL Tuesday night:

One young Obamacare activist in a camouflage shirt (with a thick British accent) kept pressing forward aggressively and even proceeded to shove the older gentleman with whom he was arguing loudly.
It was at this point that I and another attendee, John Fels, stepped in to break up the heated, and potentially physical, confrontation. The Obamacare activist then turned and tried to fight with us. An argument ensued between him and ourselves, complete with the bizarre act of the Obamacare activist turning away for a few moments to give a loud speech for his camera guy nearby. At that point, John and I walked away before the situation escalated, but apparently, the Obamacare activist became even more upset (presumably because we were not fighting with him anymore). He proceeded to come up from behind me, actually spit on me and took off running as fast as he could in the other direction! The Martin County Sheriff Office's Deputies pursued him, and finally caught up with him, but not before the Obamacare activist keyed a random car in the parking lot. Needless to say, he was arrested shortly after that.
I should point out that I was not wearing anything that was South Florida Tea Party related, nor was I carrying any signs or distributing any literature. The Obamacare activist group, who later identified themselves as a mix of members of a single-payer/socialized medicine advocacy group as well as ACORN, was not aware of my involvement with the South Florida Tea Party or the fight against the government takeover of our health care system. It seems they simply wanted to pick a fight with someone and to catch it on camera.

No doubt the video was to go to MSNBC for appropriate editing. Tea Partiers, beware astroturfing moonbats who will deliberately pick fights.

On a tip from Eric.
