And we are the violent ones?

Click the title to watch the video. We will put the entire thing up once we get it produced.

The raging goon, Governor Spencer, slugged Nathan Tabor, a business owner and head of the Forsyth County Republican Party and a former candidate for senator.

But, that’s not all…

Governor Spencer is a union organizer, a socialist and a black liberation activist.
Spencer led the Greensboro K-Mart protests of 1995 and mobilized families, communities, and “the Pulpit Forum of Greensboro, a coalition of progressive clergy, to commit acts of civil disobedience.”
Word World reported:

K-Mart Labor Struggle, 1995
Calvin Miller, Greg Headon, Governor Spencer, and Deborah Compton-Holt explained how K-Mart Warehouse Center employment practices and conditions had become unbearable, causing workers to organize around questions of economic justice. Attempts at organizing had been quelled. These veteran labor organizers recounted how they mobilized their families, communities, and the Pulpit Forum of Greensboro, a coalition of progressive clergy, to commit acts of civil disobedience and bring pressure to bear on K-Mart until they negotiated in good faith for a fairer contract. In the end, the workers triumphed, although the struggle continues. Students from local colleges, both black and white, joined the K-Mart boycotts and there was massive media coverage throughout the nation.

Governor Spencer and his associates “enlisted race to resist heirarchy.”

And, maybe you noticed this from the video… Governor Spencer has a black liberation flag bumper sticker on his car.

And, that’s just what we know right now.

The real question is “Was this just a chance beating?”… Or, “Was this Governor Spencer just following orders from above?”
You’ll have to decide that for yourself.

It was on Fox and Friends

Nathan Tabor on Neil Cavuto

  1. That was the finniest video I’ve seen in a long time. To bad the brother didn”t follow up with a right hook. That should have been michelle maulkn on the receiving end, or maybe some other republican coward. Bring it on you tea baggers, the revolution has started.

    • Christopher Corbett says:

      What’s even “finnier” is that you are openly approving sucker punches and beating women, and you have the cojones to call someone a coward. Do yourself a favor and read something with less pictures and move out of your mom’s basement.

    Hey guys,
    It is well known that greensboro and guilford county have had a less than stellar reputation when it comes to Conservatives, be it Dem., or Rep. Hammer with the Rhino Times has been fighting this machinery for years. Now that we have the masses of people we are ready, This Time, to take back our Counties, State and Federal Government. We may be able to achieve a means to the end. I have noticed as well as all of you that protesting the Federal Government is somewhat useless although it is good for the media to see that there are a lot of folks who are disgusted with the federal Government. The key to winning this battle is to Elect Conservative Candidates to local and state offices. We Must vote for the Republican Candidates and then hold them accountable. It has already been proven the Democrats cannot and will not be accountable to its voters.

    I bet you can find a lot of ties in Governor Spencer’s internet social web accounts with other such agitators using race as the basis for the violent behavior. This wasn’t a chance happening, it was planned and coordinated by information from within the tea party movement. I for one do not believe it was a chance happening. Governor Spencer’s comments from the pulpit shows a calculated motive for imposing his ideology on others by his size and race. The local authorities will do nothing but try to quell trouble within their own district by any means possible including squashing the rights of other groups. It shows a huge mistake on their part to monitor this situation for a peaceful protest. This will be sweeped under the rug locally. I feel sympathy for Mr. Tabor and his family and hope that they continue on with their work on defending our rights as citizens to contain our politicans.

    Has the goon been charged with assault and battery yet?
    WHY NOT?

  5. jack says:

    If somebody,black or white hit me with a cheap shot like that I would have broken that camera over his head!

  6. bruce says:

    Sounds like the guy who hit him is getting away with it and th guy who got punched is being charged. Typical. Gotta love racism in the good old USA. Protect the thugs due to their skin color and paint the victim as the bad guy. Typical..

  7. preradstudent says:

    I’m glad that you all disapprove of the “40oz.” posting and recognize it for the racist comment that it was…

    Interestingly enough, however, there is more video footage of the incident and it was exactly this sort of comment that led up to the incident in the first place… the man’s wife asked the black gentleman “Shouldn’t you be at work? Don’t you have a job?”

  8. Jsmith says:

    Typical intolerance of a left wing nut…. Hope charges are filed against the cheap shot artist.

  9. NCcatdaddy says:

    the comment above does not represent the mindset of the overwhelming majority of Tea Party supporters. as repugnant as this man’s behavior was, he does not deserve to be disparaged in this manner.

    • Tommy says:

      This is only a sign that the criminals that have been destroying this country are losing their foot hold. Too many are awake to suite their liking.

  10. Bob says:

    Please remove Michael’s stupid, racist comment above!

    That kind of comment is gonna make more headlines than the actual assault!

  11. michael says:

    This is just another of Obamas brainwashed thugs with nothing better to do on his way to grab another 40oz.

      Leave that racist crap in your trailer.

      It’s true that if the races were reversed, this would be the lead story in the local news, but there’s no need to sling such hateful slang.

    • CPLViper says:

      I don’t believe that I would have kept my composure in the face of an adversary that assaulted my wife then assaulted myself. Regardless of what the wife said (1st Amendment), words cannot be retaliated against with violence. The assailant’s actions though would have justified a physical response. That said, if I was the one who was hit, the assailant would be receiving “Get Well” cards from his friends and family as he lay in traction, eating from a tube.
