People Teabaggers Blame for the Kenneth Gladney Incident

As I've written on multiple occasions, I think there are plenty of reasons to be skeptical about Kenneth Gladney and David Brown's story about what happened outside of Russ Carnahan's town hall on August 6th. In fact, I think their story is inconsistent with what we can see in the video. But, just for the sake of argument, let's imagine that their description of that's night's events were completely true and could somehow miraculously be made to correspond to the video. What could we conclude in such a case?

To review, their story is that Gladney was outside selling buttons and handing out "Don't Tread On Me" flags, when Elston McCowan approached him and asked, "What kind of n** would sell this?" On their story, Gladney snatched his stuff back from McCowan and McCowan started hitting Gladney. They then claim that Perry Molens joined in and started beating Gladney as well. If this is what really happened, then who do you think should be blamed for the incident? McCowan? Molens?

Oh, you poor naive little communist. In fact, as has been documented by Jim Durbin, Dana Loesch, Gateway Pundit, Andrew Breitbart, and Glenn Beck, this incident was not the result of a momentary altercation, but in fact was clearly the result of a Massive Government Conspiracy! Below, I kid you not, is a list of just some of the people that these teabaggers have claimed are directly responsible for the fight between Kenneth Gladney and Elston McCowan:
  • President Obama, of course
  • White House Adviser David Axelrod
  • White House Deputy Chief of Staff Jim Messina
  • Deputy Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement Buffy Wicks
  • Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius
  • Health Care for America Now Director Margarida Jorge
  • SEIU President Andy Stern
  • AFL-CIO President John Sweeney
  • Representative Russ Carnahan
  • Carnahan Spokesperson Sara Howard
  • County Executive Charlie Dooley, a (GASP!) former union member!
  • St. Louis County Counselor Patricia Reddington
  • St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCullough
Quite an impressive government conspiracy no? And for all that work, all this massive conspiracy was able to accomplish was to get in a couple punches on a guy selling buttons. I wonder what the next massive government conspiracy will be. Ding dong ditching Glenn Beck's mansion? Hiding a whoopee cushion on Limbaugh's chair? I guess the possibilities are endless, when you have an all-powerful oppressive government like Obama's.


  1. What will be interesting, is revelation of the incestuous relationship of all involved in this "incident". To date, it appears to be a loose group of unassociated individulas. But you and I know differently, don't we Jimmy Olsen?

  2. Ummmm, no I don't know any differently. The only thing I've seen are ridiculous leaps of fancy from wingnuts claiming that if some guy voted for Obama then it must be the case that Obama ordered him to get in a fight.

    But since you're delusional enough to tell me what I "know," I'm not surprised at all that you're also delusional enough to believe that this is a massive government conspiracy. Fortunately, most other people can see right through such silliness.

  3. I heard that Attorney David Brown severed all ties with Gladney due to holes in Gladney's story and Gladney's overall stupidity. I just read a KMOX article that stated that Gladney's brother, Keith, is now his official spokesman.
