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.

    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??

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

    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.]

    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.

    Democrats are the s**t stains on this republic’s history. Past and present.
