Another example of anti-democracy maga Republican thugs in action.   Hugs

Ossoff, Perdue release statements condemning the violence.
 

Tempers flared at a “Get Out the Vote” rally in Stockbridge on Saturday morning when a passerby attacked a man holding campaign signs supporting U.S. Senate candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, police said.

 

The incident occurred about 10:40 a.m. as a group supporting the Democratic candidates stood along Hudson Bridge Road near I-75 with political signs encouraging voters to take part in next month’s runoff elections, authorities said.

 

“A passerby stopped and confronted a supporter with physical aggression,” Henry County police Capt. Randy Lee said in an emailed statement. “The supporter suffered wounds to his face and head.”

 

Photos obtained by Channel 2 Action News showed the man bleeding from cuts above his eye and on the side of his head. Witnesses at the scene told the news station the suspect punched the man before grabbing his campaign signs and ripping them up.

 

Someone walked up to a Democratic Get Out the Vote rally in Stockbridge today and punched a supporter in the face then tore up his @ossoff and @ReverendWarnock signs, per police & witnesses. The suspect was arrested and charged with battery. Victim is ok.

The victim is the one in the photo above and in this one.

Here’s our story on this situation that ended one with one person injured and one person arrested.

The suspect, who was not identified, was arrested and charged with battery, Lee said. The injured man was treated at the scene and released.

The violence was later condemned by both Ossoff and his opponent, Republican Sen. David Perdue.

“There aren’t even words to explain how completely unacceptable this kind of violence is toward any human being,” Ossoff said in a statement. “I hope the other candidates in this runoff election will join me in condemning this and I’m calling on all of our supporters to treat each other with respect.”

 
 

In a tweet Saturday evening, Perdue called the attack “absolutely disgusting” and said behavior like that “has no place in our civil society.”

“Bonnie (Perdue’s wife) and I are praying for the victim and grateful for the law enforcement who arrested the suspected perpetrator,” he wrote.

    • Hello Nan. We have to face reality of what has happened in the country and what the maga people are. What they are supporting. The older maga guy on his couch at home may not go out and assault someone supporting a cause they dislike, but they are supporting the members that do. If I belonged to a group, say the Elks, and that group was racist and did not allow POC to join. As long as I supported the policies of the group and gave money to the club to stay in the group I was a racist also.

      I keep hearing from Republicans that the left has to reach out to them. Biden wants to reach out to the Republicans. Biden won. Let the Republicans reach out to him, hell most of them won’t say he won because they fear the tweet of tRump. Republicans when they win don’t reach out to Democrats, they bray about it and claim they have a mandate to change the country.

      About 32% of the country are very uninterested in being a civilised country. They are uneducated thugs, the lowest common denominators of humanity who want to regress to when they felt powerful and respected. That is why they can not function nor tolerate the progressive world, but cause in it they don’t have the power to be assholes and jerks and they get called on for it. Hugs
