Virginia Cops Beat Down Reporter For Making Bad Words At GOP Racist Ed Gillespie
Can't wait for this lawsuit! Here's a video of Virginia's Finest arresting a Shareblue reporter at a parade in Annandale over the weekend. Seems the reporter committed the grievous offense of making naughty words near GOP gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie. If people would just listen to cops and do everything they say, none of this would ever happen!

Yes, six cops really did dogpile on top of a guy for swearing. Because Fairfax County still has an ordinance on its books penalizing profanity.
If any person profanely curse or swear or be drunk in public he shall be deemed guilty of a Class 4 misdemeanor.
Because what even is the First Amendment, right? We could make a millionty words on how this is blatantly unconstitutional, but if you didn't already know that, you probably wandered into Wonkland by mistake. Go on back to The Blaze, with the rest of the mouthbreathers who are glad to see a librul git wut he dizervs. Here on Planet Earth, Fairfax County is about to get sued for violating this guy's civil rights six ways from Sunday. They also charged him with resisting arrest because he couldn't pull his hand out from under his body with six goons on top of him. Yeah, of course they did.
Shareblue Media reporter Mike Stark has been following Ed Gillespie for months. We're even willing to admit he was probably a royal pain in the ass, shouting out confrontational questions and trying to embarrass the candidate. But if you can't handle people being rude, maybe you shouldn't be running for political office. And if you don't want to answer embarrassing questions about white supremacy and lung cancer, maybe you shouldn't run ads screaming about MS-13 and make your living as a tobacco lobbyist. We are just saying.
But Ed Gillespie knows who is the real victim here, AND IT IS ED GILLESPIE. Poor Ed was triggered because Mike Stark was filming him from a mere 20 yards away. And in case you were wondering if it was just the Fairfax County cops getting a little overzealous, the nice lady in the red jacket egging them on was the Gillespie flack who got Stark booted from a Gillespie event the night before. Subtle!
Hours after being released from the Fairfax County jail, Stark was waiting in the hallway of a strip mall, where Gillespie had a public event to talk to the Virginians whose votes he needs on Nov. 7. Stark asked the gubernatorial hopeful why he was so afraid to answer for the racism in his own campaign. The candidate ignored him.
Shine on, you crazy diamond! MAD PROPS.
