ObamaCare Supporter Bites Finger off 65 Year Old Man

Another example of the Angry Mob.

Finger bitten off during California health protest

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. - California authorities say a clash between opponents and supporters of health care reform ended with one man biting off another man's finger.

Ventura County Sheriff's Capt. Frank O'Hanlon says about 100 people demonstrating in favor of health care reforms rallied Wednesday night on a street corner. One protester walked across the street to confront about 25 counter-demonstrators.

O'Hanlon says the man got into an argument and fist fight, during which he bit off the left pinky of a 65-year-old man who opposed health care reform.

A hospital spokeswoman says the man lost half the finger, but doctors reattached it and he was sent home the same night.

She says he had Medicare.

O'Hanlon says the attacker fled but authorities have a good description.

I'm just surprised AP beat the YouTube Video.

Jeff Blogworthy:

Describing the opposition to government takeover of health care as "opponents of health care reform" and raging Socialists as mere "supporters of health care reform" is an objectionable and false simplification. Leftists and their euphemisms.

Pity the 'biter' when they find him. He'll be charged with mayhem (felony). And if they really want to fuck with him, 'elder abuse' as an enhancement.

It's a damn shame, too, about the anti-Health Care reformer who punched an elderly pro-Health Care reform in the face.

People should just calm down and discuss things rationally.

If that's his bite, what was his bark like?

In other news, this is one of the few cases where they'll identify the criminal by his dental records.

The 65 year old man that swore and raised his hand to a 56 year old man and got a pop in the jaw? The same 65 year old man that refused treatment? Or to press charges?

"It's a damn shame, too, about the anti-Health Care reformer who punched an elderly pro-Health Care reform in the face."

You follow Obama's dictum about "getting in their faces" that could happen to you to. You 'get in my face' and you'll be singing the high notes in the choir. Don't forget, when following Obama's advice, he's all about sacrifice. Yours not his.

My pinky, my pinky, my kingdom for a pinky but I guess he has that terrible Medicare a "Single-payer health care insurance" what a hypocrite. It real should have been his right pinky finger that would have been, sweet. They are heaters not debaters.

As usual, Paul makes as much sense as a two year old throwing a tantrum.

Under Obama's $500 BILLION medicare cuts, the guy would probably have been given a tetanus shot and a pain pill. Given that he was 65, they might have skipped the shot in order to save money.

I can't believe the hand surgeon sewed that thing back on for Medicare rates! That's clearly why the hospital sent him home and wouldn't keep him overnight.

Constitution First:

The so-called "ObamaCare Supporter", was not some anonymous shmuck who happened along; he was part of a group that was assembled by George Soros's "Moron.Com" to "get in their faces" to quote a famous community organizer. These are thugs hired to undermine democracy. It's time to call a spade, a spade; these are brownshirts used to beat down any legitimate opposition to Progressive/Liberal/Democrat ideology. The gloves are off, our freedoms are being forcibly taken from us, we can lie to ourselves about this reality, at our peril, or we can stand up against the tyrants.

My pinkie, my pinkie, my kingdom for a pinkie but I guess he has that terrible Medicare a "Single-payer health care insurance" what a hypocrite. Did the little pinkie cry "Wee-wee-wee!" all the way home (or I should say "Fake News")? It real should have been his right pinky finger that would have been a better story. He takes two punches and (as usual) tries to shove something down someone's throat and gets his pinkie bitten off, now he plays victim. They are haters not debaters.

Some seniors revert to children, its part of the aging process (I guess he forgot to "Keep your hands to yourself"). In the Neil Cavuto, interview he is a protestor but now they are trying to change the fact and say that he just innocent bystander. Now the wingnuts have a new idol to worship, a new hero. Please, snore, snore.

Yeah, He sacrificed a pinkie for all of us to defeat the deathcamps being planned.

All we have here is one side to the story, like many other immature men he just used physical violence because he was not able to articulate his position or use his brain to avoid one, never had the misfortune to be in a brawl myself, I only pity this man who felt the need to bunch his hand into someone's mouth, so now all of you can claim he is something of a innocent victim. Walking away takes maturity some men have it others do not. What a pity.

He is trying to expand healthcare to everyone, so we do not have to pay the crazy prices for emergency room care, which all of us pay anyway. I agree with Montana, especially her pointing out that the old guy could have defused and controlled the situation by simply moving away but he seem very happy content with the attention and outcome. Could it be he wanted to be the new idol to be worship, a new hero whose poster will be going up in wingnuts closets around the country? Or it could be he just wanted others to claim he was a victim and be on TV (he was quick to run to "Fake News").
