Obama Supporter Assaults Tea Party Protester


By: Jim Kouri, CPP

An enraged supporter of President Barack Obama attacked former congressional candidate Nathan Tabor during a Tea Party demonstration in North Carolina.

On Tuesday, the North Carolina Tea Party Patriots were holding a legal political protest against government bailouts. The Tea Partiers were in front of Rep. Mel Watt’s (D-N.C.) Greensboro, NC office.

During what cops characterized as a peaceful protest, an enraged man, later identified as Governor Spencer began to hurl vulgarities, disrupted the protest, argued with individuals and then became physically violent.

Governor Spencer then punched the Chairman of the Forsyth County (NC) Republican Party, Nathan Tabor, a North Carolina business owner, head of the Forsyth County Republican Party, and a former candidate for the U.S. Congress.

Investigation reveals that Governor Spencer is a union organizer, a socialist and a black liberation activist. According to political activist Bill Gheen, Spencer led the Greensboro K-Mart protests of 1995 and mobilized families, communities, and “the Pulpit Forum of Greensboro, a coalition of progressive clergy, to commit acts of civil disobedience.”

“The punch to Nathan Tabor’s face in front of his wife and crying child was an assault on all Americans that value free speech and freedom to assemble. We call on President [Barack] Obama to publicly speak out against this violence conducted by one of his supporters against his political opposition,” said Gheen, the president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC).

“We also call on the US Justice Department to file charges against Governor Spencer for violating Mr. Tabor’s civil rights and violating the civil rights of all Tea Party supporters and Americans who wish to speak out against the President without fear of violent reprisals,” Gheen said in statement released today.

Following the assault — caught on videotape — Tabor went to the magistrate’s office with police and a magistrate issued an arrest warrant for Governor Spencer.

However, a black magistrate rescinded the arrest warrant and issued summons to appear in court to both Governor Spencer and Nathan Tabor despite the fact the responding officer testified he had seen the videos and that Mr. Tabor had committed no assault. Both magistrates refused to view the videos.

“While the news media attempt to characterize Tea Partiers as violent racists who need to be watched, it is the leftists who are routinely used as goons by progressive organizations and create violence at peaceful protests by Americans,” said former NYPD detective and military intelligence officer Mike Snopes.
