The angry Left
UPDATE: It was a hoax

I was reading a post today in which the blogger kept referring to “the angry Right.” It occurred to me that I never see the media refer to the Left as angry, strange since that’s the left’s default position about everything.

The screaming, blood-colored headline on Drudge right now says:

SHOCK: MCCAIN VOLUNTEER ATTACKED AND MUTILATED IN PITTSBURGH

‘B’ CARVED INTO 20-YEAR OLD WOMAN’S FACE… DEVELOPING…

We don’t have the details yet, but if it should turn out that the “B” was for “Barack” and that the McCain volunteer was indeed attacked because of her political views, will any story mention the phenomenon of “the Angry Left”?

UPDATE: Drudge has changed the headline from red to black. Still no link to any details yet, though.

UPDATE 2: Jon, in the comments below, is skeptical. Others are too.

UPDATE 3: It was a hoax, and a pretty dumb one, too. Doing a backward “B” while looking in the mirror is a pretty basic mistake. Sheesh!

    Just another black thug.

    And no, this is not “racism”. The assailant was black, and he’s obviously a thug. Ergo, another black thug.

    Here are the details:

    A 20-year-old woman who was robbed at an ATM in Bloomfield was also maimed by her attacker, police said. …

    Richard said the robber took $60 from the woman, then became angry when he saw a McCain bumper sticker on the victim’s car. The attacker then punched and kicked the victim, before using the knife to scratch the letter “B” into her face, Richard said.

    Richard said the woman refused medical treatment after the assault, which happened outside the view of the bank’s surveillance cameras.

    The robber is described as a dark-skinned black man, 6 feet 4 inches tall, 200 pounds with a medium build, short black hair and brown eyes. The man was wearing dark colored jeans, a black undershirt and black shoes.

    The part about the politically motivated portion of the assault occurring off camera gives me a little pause. It would depend upon the extent of her injuries, but I have seen enough faked assaults by college students who take politics too seriously — including self-inflicted carvings, and this one was apparently not deep enough to require medical attention — to wonder.

    I hope the woman will be OK and that they catch the guy.

    Here is a link to some local democrat party thievery and vandalism.

    I didn’t get the endorsement from the Independent, the News and Observer, or (it would appear) the Thieves and Vandals.

    Go figure.

    According to Michelle Malkin she may be a GOP Krystal Mangum type attention getter.

    [...] I’m not buying it. It’s entirely too politically convenient, just as the faked pro-Obama assault was last year, of which I was skeptical from the get-go. It is too reminiscent of other faked [...]
