PhotOH! Obama sign in Florida run over and defaced by "old, white-haired white man."


A reader sent me these photos taken in Florida:

The owner of the sign said that someone had run over it, and that it was the second time that had occurred. After she had re-constructed it, it was defaced.

A witness described the vandal as "an old, white-haired white man."

It never ends.


VIDEO: Obama campaign office vandalized with swastikas, second incident in a week


Sigh. First this happened at Obama campaign headquarters in Denver:

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Now this happened in the Obama campaign office in Conifer (Conifer is located in the foothills west of Denver.):

The word sickening doesn't begin to describe this incident, nor the previous one. What a sad commentary, and in the year 2012. Amazing.

Odd how you don't see this happening to Romney campaign offices. Of course, vile scenes like these would have nothing to do with the color of President Obama's skin. To even suggest that would be racist, according to the trolls we get around here, because it's so obvious that we here at TPC are the racist ones.

VIDEO: A few eye-popping seconds of "Kony 2012" filmmaker Jason Russell's meltdown


This is so sad and disturbing, and as I said yesterday, I hope he gets the help he clearly needs.

Original post of the story here, including the full version of this information via TMZ (who also provided the video):

A rep for Invisible Children says Russell was suffering from exhaustion, dehydration, and malnutrition as a result of a strenuous PR campaign.


"Kony 2012" Filmmaker Jason Russell Detained for Masturbating in Public, Drunken Vandalism


Jason Russell,  one of the the founders responsible for the "Kony 2012" video, is making jaws drop and eyes pop all over the Twitter Machine.

NBC San Diego:

A co-founder for Invisible Children was detained in Pacific Beach Thursday night for being drunk in public and masturbating, according to San Diego Police Department.

Jason Russell, 33,  was allegedly found masturbating in public, vandalizing cars and possibly under the influence of something, according to Lt. Andra Brown. [...] Brown said Russell was acting very strange.

Police said they received several calls yesterday at 11:30 a.m. of a man in various stages of undress, running through traffic and screaming. Police described him as "in his underwear."

According to the article, Russell is a Christian, a father of two, and wants to have nine more kids with his wife.

Sadly, he didn't exactly living up to those family valuesy, Santorum-style Christian ideals.

Here's the statement from Invisible Children's CEO Ben Keesey:

“Jason Russell was unfortunately hospitalized yesterday suffering from exhaustion, dehydration, and malnutrition. He is now receiving medical care and is focused on getting better. The past two weeks have taken a severe emotional toll on all of us, Jason especially, and that toll manifested itself in an unfortunate incident yesterday. Jason’s passion and his work have done so much to help so many, and we are devastated to see him dealing with this personal health issue. We will always love and support Jason, and we ask that you give his entire family privacy during this difficult time.”

Let's hope he gets the help he so badly needs.

VIDEO: Sen. Kay Hagan’s office, North Carolina government buildings vandalized


Those pesky surveillance cameras catch the darndest things... like, you know, someone spray painting swastikas on government buildings, stuff like that.

Just another reminder that there are a number of ignorant, hostile Americans who find it necessary to express their hatred of their fellow Americans by destroying their state's property.

Hint: If you're angry about America's support of gay rights and human equality, try reading, learning, and eventually even communicating civilly.  Graffiti-ing bigotry and racism isn't helping your cause or your potential prison record.

Think Progress has the full report.

Earlier this year, five Democratic Congressional office were vandalized during the health care reform debate, and last year swastikas were also painted on the office of Rep. David Scott (D-GA). Just before the recent midterm election, Rep. Tom Periello’s (D-VA) campaign office was broken into and vandalized.
