Here’s the latest: (Via Think Progress)
After picking up his 10-year old daughter from school yesterday afternoon, Nashville resident Mark Duren was driving home when he was suddenly and intentionally rammed from behind by Harry Weisiger. Enraged at the sight of Duren’s Obama bumper sticker, Weisiger gave Duren “the bird” and then hit him from behind, leading to a violent series of events. Nashville’s WKRN reports:
“He pointed at the back of my car,” Duren said, “the bumper, flipped me off, one finger salute.”
But it didn’t end there.
Duren told News 2 that Weisiger honked his horn at him for awhile, as Duren stopped at a stop sign.
Once he started driving again, down Blair Boulevard, towards his home, he said, “I looked in the rear view mirror again, and this same SUV was speeding, flying up behind me, bumped me.”
Duren said he applied his brake and the SUV smashed into the back of his car.
He then put his car in park to take care of the accident, but Weisiger started pushing the car using his SUV.
Duren said, “He pushed my car up towards the sidewalk, almost onto the sidewalk.”
But I guess it was Duren’s fault because his Obama bumper sticker intentionally provoked Weisiger. I also guess the 10 year old in the car will be labeled as “collateral damage.”

I can hardly believe it, but apparently America’s wife beaters have actually decided to use the defense that these Democrats are “asking for” death threats from the right wingers because they are “making them mad.” I documented Sere and Cantor’s warnings this morning, but there are more:
Breitbart: Congressional Black Caucus members went “searching for … racism” by walking through Tea Party crowd
Graham tells Beck — Beck! — Tea Partiers “get mad” because they “don’t like being called racist
Michael Graham: Pelosi was “asking for” response by carrying Medicare gavel
Rove warns Dems that discussing threats against them may “inflame emotions”
Bet the wife beaters are taking notes.
