Oh, you read that right, ladies and ladydudes.
Retired Lt. Col. Thomas James North of Jersey Court in Elizabethtown was arrested by Elizabethtown police the first week of March after, according to police, surveillance video recorded him pouring paint thinner on a pickup owned by a man who said his conservative political views have made him a target.
The truck’s owner, Kenneth Bunting, said attacks on his truck, which bears a tea party bumper sticker, began early this year.
There were a half-dozen “eggings” in February alone, Bunting said.
Bunting said he had no idea why vandals had targeted his pickup until he found a tea bag on the truck’s hood.
Bunting also said he’d never heard of North until he researched the defendant’s name on the Internet, where he said he found evidence that North’s political views differed from his own.
Labeling the incident as a hate crime, Bunting said he wants North prosecuted federally, but doubts that will happen.
Why does this awful man hate the teabaggers so badly?
And – what – teabaggers proclaiming to be victims of hate crimes???
Woah. Space-time continuum troubles, folks.
