Horde of Leftists Knocked 80 Year-Old Woman to the Ground During Chicago Diner Beatdown

A far left “anti-racist” group beat Chicago diners with bats and hammers last week.

Five men from Indiana are being held for the terrorist act.

The young far left hoodlums knocked an 80 year-old woman to the ground during the attack.
The Chicago Sun Times reported:

A horde of masked figures stormed the restaurant in a single-file line, wielding bats, claw hammers and metal batons — their presence announced when one shouted, “‘Hey, bitches, the ARA is going to f— up this place.’ ”

With that, the shrouded thugs went on a rampage, clubbing diners at The Ashford House restaurant on May 19 in Tinley Park. They did not discriminate as to the targets of their violence, even pushing an 80-year-old woman to the ground, according to an eyewitness who’s a former Chicago police officer.

“Although the terrorist assault lasted only about a minute, it was the longest minute of my life,” the eyewitness said.

Authorities have said the attackers were targeting a group that believes in white supremacy and calls itself the Illinois European Heritage Association. At least 10 people were hurt during the attack, with three taken to a hospital for treatment.

Five Indiana men who prosecutors say are linked to the Anti-Racist Action Group remain in the Cook County Jail, charged with felony mob action, aggravated battery and criminal damage to property. They are John Tucker, 26, of Martinsville, Ind.; Cody Sutherlin, 23, and Alex Stuck, 22, both of Bloomington, Ind.; and Dylan Sutherlin, 20, and Jason Sutherlin, 33, both of Gosport, Ind. Two victims also were arrested on charges unrelated to the attack.

The Anti-Racist Action Group (ARA) is a “radical left-wing group” that often resorts to violent acts…

…The attackers began upending tables, hurling plates and silverware and attacking other diners.

“I stood up and grabbed a wooden chair as one of the assailants approached from the left. I started swinging the chair to protect my family and other elderly patrons in our corner,” the man says in a written statement. “Suddenly, another assailant charged at me from the right. He was violently swinging a metal baton. The terrorist swung two or three times at my head and face. Thank God I was able to block the brunt (of) his attack with the chair.”

The witness said he shared his account because he wants people to patronize The Ashford House, 7959 W. 159th St. He suffered a gash to his head, and one of his hands was still swollen days after the attack. But his injuries did not prevent him from dispensing some justice of his own.

“When I was fending them off, I realized my head was bleeding. And my hand was really hurting,” he said. “But when one of those guys said, ‘Don’t let him up,’ I ran across the room and hit him as hard as I could in the face with a chair.”

    another reason for the death penalty…worthless POS thugs…

    I noticed that the Commie Mark Potok at the Southern Poverty Law Center never denounced their violent actions. Never denounced these violent attacks as being a hate crime that they’re oh so damn worried about. What was Potok’s and the Southern Poverty Law Centers main concern?

    From the Chicago Sun Times,

    The Anti-Racist Action Group (ARA) is a “radical left-wing group” that often resorts to violent acts, said Mark Potok, a senior fellow at The Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit civil rights organization based in Montgomery, Ala. The attack, he said, “did more harm to the cause of fighting racism than almost anyone can imagine.”

    It was easy for the Anti-Racist Action Group to learn the other group was meeting in Tinley Park because it was advertised on two white supremacist websites, Potok said.

    “It was incredibly foolish of them,” he said


    And Eric Holder is has what about this?? (cough cough)

  • http://none tommy mc donnell

    since the ARA is supposedly anti-racist do you think we could introduce them to the NBBP.

  • Mad Hatter

    And Eric Holder has said what about this?? ***typo***

    Yet another reason why I sit facing the door with a concealed .45ACP pistol concealed at my hip. Depending on the weapon of choice, I could take out at least 14 or so with a magazine reload.

    via The Blaze–
    Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers are directly tied to the dirtbags at the center of this Chicago Mob Attack.
    The group that has claimed responsibility for a mob attack at a Chicago-area restaurant over the weekend is the same group that hosted former Weather Underground terrorists and Barack Obama associates Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers last year, according to fliers published on the organization’s web site:

    “…charged with felony mob action, aggravated battery and criminal damage to property.”

    These “charges” seem rather innocuous to me.

    No “assault with a deadly weapon?”

    Exactly what concealed carry and stand your ground laws are for. Does everyone understand why these tactics work so well in Ill and other states which ban carry? Why they don’t work in Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona…etc.

    I must have missed something. From the mugshots, they all look as diverse as Obama senior leadership (i.e. all white). Oh wait now… I get it. They’re just following Obama’s definition of ‘racism’, which means “middle class, tea party, people that actually are stupid enough to pay taxes and pay for their own healthcare rather than be a choom-loving, golfing, partying parasite.”

    “Illinois European Heritage Association”

    Wouldn’t be a bad farce group name, but they probably are bona fide racist socialists.

    The only thing wrong racist socialists, according to the ‘progressives’ is the racist part. Whether the ‘racist’ came first, or the ‘socialist’, is irrelevant as racism and socialism will ALWAYS marry in the end.

  • Winston Wolfe

    It’s long past time to start wasting these thugs.

    It’s either us, or them. And I’ll be damned if it’s going to be them.

    I have to say, as long as there is a National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, charges of racism based on group ethnic identity seem to me to be a bit of a moot point.
