Obama Supporters Drive Through Parking Lot at Tea Party Rally and Dump Nails

A truck affixed with Obama stickers drove through the parking lot outside of a tea party rally in Racine, Wisconsin on Saturday and dumped nails.
Anne Sorock from Legal Insurrection was at the rally and posted this picture.

These nails were picked up off the lot.

Mt. Pleasant Patch reported:

The Tea Party faithful gathered Saturday for a loud and enthusiastic rally aimed at getting out the vote on Nov. 6 and putting Republicans Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in the White House.

The Racine Tea Party’s “Rally for Jobs” kicked off at 2:30 p.m. Saturday inside the old Sam’s Club at 6200 Regency West Drive.

Before the event could get under way, though, organizers say a truck affixed with “Obama” stickers drove through the parking lot and dumped quantities of nails.

“We went outside and picked up what we could,” said Lou D’Abbraccio, holding a cup filled with nails. “But this was just wrong.”

Lora Halberstadt, a Tea party member, said the group did call the Racine Police Department to file a report.

Patch asked two RPD officers outside the venue if they could confirm the report, but they only said they couldn’t comment about a truck.

Here’s another shot of the parking lot nails.

Tea Party organizer Nancy Milholland sent this picture.

And, Wisconsin radio host Vicki McKenna, who spoke at the rally, sent this.

There were probably a couple of hundred roofing nails. At least one person got a flat tire because of it. Two cars were trolling ahead of the event (with Obama stickers on their cars), but no one saw them or anyone throw the nails. I was told the nails were NOT there when our organizers arrived. So, from what I can gather someone had to have scattered them after our guys arrived. Which is why those two cars were suspicious. It wouldn’t have been hard to throw the nails and not be noticed. we didn’t have a lot of security there at all. We have their license plates.

I put up a tweet pic of some of them. Jeremy Segal was here, too… He may have snapped a pic of the giant cup of nails that our people picked up from the lot.

    The Obama campaign is making it very obvious that they’ve got nothing but muckraking, name calling and violence to run on.

    Perhaps Obama, being raised outside the USA, does not realize that most Americans do NOT take kindly to this kind of behaviour by an extremely long shot. Those nails won’t keep people from voting for Romney – they will drive them to him in droves.

  • bigkahuna

    Big deal what will nails do to stop anything. Grab a few magnets and then use those nails to put in the Obama coffin.

    When the Obama campaigns gives you lemons…make lemonade and sell it and showcase how isnt qualified to work at one.

    This must be the reality that Stephanie Cutter mentioned

    it’s called “intimidation”, al qaeda, the muslim brotherhood, black
    panthers, and numerous other bully groups do it, and these type
    assaults are sanctioned by US President Obama and his Attorney
    General Holder..

    and is it not a crime to damage others property??


  • bg


    sure hope they have pictures of the parking lot, lest
    this report not be on the up and up so to speak.. 😯


  • NorthernX

    Well, you know, the idea is to blow out people’s tires–especially the undecided ones so that they’ll see the light and vote for Obama…errrrr, right?

  • Fallon

    This happened outside the GOP headquarters in Hudson, WI in 2008. There were lots of elderly volunteers there and I shudder to think what might have happened if one of them drove on the highway with multiple nails in their tires. Luckily, someone noticed them and we picked them all up.

    What kind of immoral people do the Democratics and Obama attract?

  • jtown

    heh. completely staged by the RW.

    ‘a pickup with Obama stickers’. riiiiight. nobody got the license plate? I find that pretty hard to believe.

    those are similar to roofing nails. Whatever, the wide headmakes them stand when hit then go into the tire.They would ruin the tire. You couldn’t/shouldn’t do a patch

    WEST: Black Americans should vote for Mitt Romney

    [A recent poll showed the percentage of black Americans who have a
    “strongly positive” view of Mr. Obama has slipped from 83 percent to
    58 percent. Those numbers show black Americans are paying attention,
    and they don’t like what they see.]


  • Multitude

    We have arrived at 1921. Too few understand the history of progressive ideology, or “revolution from within.” We are all used to the attempts by the left to steer people away from their history and contemporary efforts by progressive Democrats to recreate it. Irrational screams of “Godwins Law!” In hear panicked rage are uttered whenever one utters the slightest reference to the history of their ideology.

    So I leave it to more rational minds to wiki Sturmabteilung (SA) and read about their primary functions, which included giving organized support and security to German progressive rallies, and disrupting the rallies of their political enemies.

  • Sasja

    jtown. What was your statement about not having the license plate numbers? Just so you know, we RWs have better things to do with our time than to resort to juvenile behavior. We leave that up to you freaks.

    Panicked, Enraged Obama Voters Around
    Country Lash Out at Romney Supporters

    [In Racine, Wisc., liberal “Home Alone” fanatics dumped nails in a parking
    lot set to host a Tea Party rally. Tea Party rallies apparently still happen,
    by the way.]

    a most excellent written piece by Kirk Cameron..

    America digging her own grave

    [It’s weird. The whole thing made me think about our country. I look
    around my neighborhood. I see bumper stickers on cars, political signs
    planted on street corners, and I hear conversations at the coffee shop
    and soccer field that leave me feeling so – sad.

    I have the eerie feeling that I’m watching my community and country dig
    their own graves. And they’re really killing themselves to do it. They’re
    putting a ton of effort into their work. They’re exhausting themselves to
    keep abortion legal. They think raising taxes and spending other people’s
    money is a good idea. They tirelessly work to be “loving and tolerant” of
    things that will hurt their own families and dishonor God. And the crazy
    thing is, I think most of them really do love America. But they don’t realize
    that in all their misguided efforts, they’re actually digging her grave.

    On Nov. 6, those who vote will choose life or death for our many of our
    freedoms in this land. This presidential election outcome will have huge
    consequences. We have two men with very different ideas about what
    America should be. The right man could provide the fuel to get our country
    back on track, and the wrong man could prove to be the final nail in her

    Anyone get the license plate numbers-

    The use of roofing nails suggests this isn’t the first time this particular Obamabot has engaged in such activity.

  • lainer51

    When you have sh** for brains, this is all you got! Childish, boorish, classless – gotta love those Barry sycophants.

  • #11…they don’t have unions in communist countries.

  • dwdude

    roofing nails for shingles…that already narrows it down. look at the local carpenters union first…

  • Stella Baskomb

    Common nails – the perfect metaphor for left-wingers who are so pleased to serve as useful idiots for their masters.

    That is, they are small pieces of cheap material that want nothing more than to be pounded on the head until they can no longer think for themselves.

    I have lots of friends who are democrats. I am a registered democrat myself. I’m not describing my friends or anyone like them who think for themselves and are committed to civilization and the rule of law.

    But I am describing the leftist “nails” and the tools that drive them.

    Must-Watch Vid: Still Thinking About Voting for Obama?

    “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, “the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

    ~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

    Sophomoric actions again. And shows incompetence. They should have used barbs (e.g., barbed wire). Guess they were out yucking it up on their cleverness. Just like Obama during the Seven Hours of Benghazi. You should feel pity for them after they’re arrested and jailed.

  • Restless

    Are Obama supporters getting desperate because they’re sensing doom? Here in my town in Illinois, someone stole Romney signs from yards in the wee hours of the morning Sunday. The signs disappeared all over town.

  • Steve……read the entire article. They DID get the license plates info.

  • Gloria Wedemeyer

    Doesn’t it seem funny that all the outrageous acts happening to yard signs, etc are done by Dems. Did Obama spread his chicago thugs all over the country. These kinds of things only want to make people know they must send him back to Chicago where he belongs. Of course, they aren’t going to get him as I hear he is searching out property in Hawaii. Far enough away from me, that is ok. Or he can go to California where his people are.

    This is exactly the same sort of intimidation tactics engaged in by Hitler’s Brown Shirts.
    If you think this isn’t the most important election ever for this country then you just aren’t paying attention.
    Violence against people and property have been reported from several locations across the country, all aimed against Romney/Ryan supporters. There have been reports from multiple states of voting machines defaulting to a vote for Obama when a vote for Romney has been selected by the voter. There are reports of vanloads of people who can’t speak english being brought to polling places and instructed by Democrat operatives how to use a Democrat voting slate to cast a ballot. I have seen no reports of any activity of this nature being directed against Democrats.
    If this election doesn’t begin to bring this country back to values it was founded on then the day will come when we see the people that we now meet over the conference table as allies and trading partners looking at us over a gun barrel.
