Charges filed over attack at Trump rally

The Republican Party is full of violent thugs, so if we were to report on every GOP rally where counterprotesters are beaten or otherwise assaulted, this would be a mighty active blog. Remember the "George Bush, Bite My Tush" incident at Devou Park?

But it's a big story when the victim is actually allowed to file charges - in Kentucky, no less! Usually, victims of attacks like this are met with a Rosco P. Coltrane-like "Are you kidding me?!" response when they try to file charges.

After participants in a Donald Trump rally in Louisville on Tuesday assaulted protesters, some are fighting back: A 17-year-old male who was punched in the stomach by an unidentified woman at the rally has been able to file a police report over the incident. This victim and others were also kicked out of the event by Trump brownshirts after the billionaire Republican frontrunner himself ordered them ejected.

The woman who assaulted the teen was part of a group that also included Cincinnati-based white supremacist "leader" Matthew Heimbach - who has admitted being involved in a separate assault at the event that was broadcast on TV.

We are at war - a war between good and evil.
