PITTSBURGH (Oct. 24) - Pittsburgh police say a McCain campaign volunteer made up a story of being robbed, pinned to the ground and having the letter "B'' scratched on her face in a politically inspired attack.
Maurita Bryant, the assistant chief of the police department's investigations division, says 20-year-old Ashley Todd is being charged with making a false report to police....Police said the student, Ashley Todd, of College Station, Texas, who is white, told them she was attacked by a 6-foot-4 black man Wednesday night.
In her initial account, Richard said, Todd attempted to use the ATM when the man approached her from behind, put a knife with a 4- to 5-inch blade to her throat and demanded money. She told police she handed the assailant $60 and walked away.Todd told investigators that she suspected the man then noticed a John McCain sticker on her car, became angry and punched her in the back of the head, knocking her to the ground and telling her "you are going to be a Barack supporter," police said in a statement.She said he continued to punch and kick her while threatening "to teach her a lesson for being a McCain supporter," police said. She said he then sat on her chest, pinned her hands down with his knees and scratched a backward letter "B'' into her face using what she believed to be a dull knife.
I knew from the first time I hear it that this was bullshit. It was just too perfect a racist fantasy. Little white girl attacked by, not just a black man, but a BIG SCARY SIX FOOT FOUR BLACK MAN! WITH A KNIFE! BOOGA BOOGA BOOGA!
And who the fuck says things like ""you are going to be a Barack supporter!"?
But of course, perfect racist fantasy is just what the McCain campaign needs to stir up the yay-hoos, and so Honorable John and Governor Moose-a-lini eagerly bought right into it....
The report of the attack Thursday prompted the Republican presidential candidate and his running mate, Sarah Palin, to call Todd expressing their concern.
Yeah, I'll bet. They were salivating at the prospect of being able to paint Obama supporters as BIG SCARY BLACK MEN! WITH KNIVES! COMING TO MARK YOUR DAUGHTERS FOR THEIR BIG SCARY BLACK MASTER!
Much as it pains me to say, Fox News VP John Moody is right:
If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain’s quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting.
