LEFT-WING VIOLENCE: Two Republican Candidates Punched in Minnesota

Shane Mekeland, Sarah Anderson

Thank you, Maxine Waters and Eric Holder.

Two Republican candidates were physically assaulted in Minnesota by violent left-wing lunatics this week.

Minnesota state representative candidate, Shane Mekeland suffered a concussion after he got sucker-punched at a Benton County restaurant.

Minnesota state representative, Sarah Anderson was punched in the arm by a man after she confronted him for destroying Republican campaign signs.

Free Beacon reported:

First-time state representative candidate Shane Mekeland suffered a concussion after getting sucker punched while speaking with constituents at a restaurant in Benton County. Mekeland told the Free Beacon he has suffered memory loss—forgetting Rep. Anderson’s name at one point in the interview—and doctors tell him he will have a four-to-six week recovery time ahead of him. He said he was cold cocked while sitting at a high top table at a local eatery and hit his head on the floor.

“I was so overtaken by surprise and shock and if this is the new norm, this is not what I signed up for,” he said.

Benton County Sheriff Troy Heck told the Free Beacon that his department has interviewed the alleged assailant. Investigators are awaiting medical records about the extent of Mekeland’s injuries before referring the case to the local district attorney’s office. He expects those results to come in the next week.

Sarah Anderson was attacked by a man who called himself an “anarchist” after she confronted him for kicking down Republican yard signs.

This is the left–a man will attack a woman–they have zero morals, zero boundaries.

The left is a violent mob.

City Pages reported:

State Rep. Sarah Anderson (R-Plymouth) was campaigning Sunday when she saw a man kicking yard signs touting her and other GOP candidates.

She jumped from her car and told the man to stop. He refused, Anderson told WCCO, saying he was an “anarchist” and “could do whatever I want.”

So the politician did what any red-blooded American would do: She tried to catch the incident on video.

Anderson gave chase in her car, and the man charged her again, leaning through her window and punching her in the arm. As a general rule, this is not a very effective place to punch someone. But “he was irrational,” Anderson said, “just completely irrational.”
