Romney Supporter Resorts to Violence

A Ron Paul delegate, Nethaniel Henderson, was assaulted by who he described as a Mitt Romney supporter during Friday’s general session of the Republican Party of Texas State Convention in the arena of the Fort Worth Convention Center.

The incident occurred during Kay Bailey Hutchinson’s speech at the assembly. The situation became tense when she announced her support for the “Republican Party’s nominee” Mitt Romney. A statement many Ron Paul supporters found to be offensive, considering the amount of time, effort, and expense put into organizing and turning out their sizable delegation.

The dueling mix of applause and boos as the Senator spoke ultimately led to at least one recorded incident of physical violence. Efforts to identify the man who struck Nethaniel by name were unsuccessful.

Commentary: It should be noted that this incident took place the day after Rand Paul, Senator from Kentucky and son of Ron Paul, announced his endorsement of Mitt Romney.  Undoubtedly, this had many Paul supporters, disappointed by the news, on edge and understandably emotional.


About tyrannywatchblog

Tyranny Watch was conceptualized in late 2011 by Zachary Cole based on the need for an authentic alternative in Saint Louis to the corporate media. It was soon apparent that reporting on local news and operating within social networking sites would not be enough to spread the message of truth. We decided to create a website where liberty and knowledge could easily be compiled into one location. Having our own place also eliminates the very real risk of being censored by arbitrary and often unfairly applied rules. Tyranny Watch seeks to be an example with integrity and insightful commentary on the various issues that face this country and the rest of the world. We feel that it is important to bring to the forefront news that is intentionally ignored and points that would not be admitted in a controlled environment. Tyranny Watch is also involved in our local community standing quietly in solidarity or sounding the alarm however the situation calls for. We seek to cover events that need our close attention or simply getting the word out about an important protest, march, etc. Whenever it is possible, Tyranny Watch will be there to give support to worthy causes.
