Dem Congressman assaults student asking him a question

Thomas Lifson
Remarkable video of Representative Robert Etheridge, a Democrat representing North Carolina's Second Congressional District, assaulting a student who attempted to ask him a question. Watch for yourself:



President Obama has called for civility in politics. He ought to be calling Rep. Etheridge in for a talk today, prior to his speech to the American people, and comment on the assault and what he has done to train his party in civility.

Mike Flynn, writing on Big Government comments: 

Let's recap what we saw on this video. A sitting Congressman-a presumed living extension of James Madison and other founding fathers-was asked on a public street whether he supported the President's agenda. His response was to hit away a video camera and assault a student. The age of Pericles this ain't.
