Dead Pig Left at Republican HQ in Manhattan Beach

Wearing a Mitt Romney T-shirt:

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (KABC) — A dead pig clad in a Mitt Romney T-shirt was left at a Republican campaign office in Manhattan Beach.

Manhattan Beach Police had to discard the pig’s head and its feet in a trash bin, but not before several passersby saw it.

“I thought it was a dead body because of the way he approached it,” said Manhattan Beach resident Andy Gaeta. “And then when he lifted the shirt, he saw the head wrapped in barbed wire and it’s cut in half, the whole skull was. It looked like something from a butcher’s market.”

The pig was laid out at the doorstep of the Republican headquarters on Highland Avenue.

According to sources I just made up, Big Media types quickly agreed: The Republican Party needs to take a long, hard look at itself. When good Democrats are pushed to the point where they have no choice but to express their political views by slaughtering a defenseless animal and dumping it at their opponents’ front door — well, it really says something about the GOP.

I blame Bush.

  4. mg,

    Well they have been advertising pork on TV lately, “as the other white meat”.

  5. Pat, this could also apply to another sector of the world that we are having trouble with.

    The Republican Party Other religions need to take a long, hard look at itself their beliefs. When good Democrats muslims are pushed to the point where they have no choice but to express their political religious views by slaughtering a defenseless animal defenseless people and dumping it at their opponents’ front door their bodies in the streets — well, it really says something about the GOP other religions.

  8. An example of the new civility-
    Saw a blurb somewhere about another actress who tweeted pro-Romney and was besieged with bile.

    It only takes one idiot to do something like this, but it takes a whole bunch of people to tolerate it.

    I think the left is around stage 3, with bits of them already around 5.

  26. Insufferable in victory and unconscionable in defeat – quite an example they set. I guess it’s because they still have the incompetent POS as leader.

  28. Geez, talk about sore winners.

    If the Dems win a few more election cycles, I expect we’ll see them rioting in the streets and burning things like Lakers fans when they win the championship.

    Comment by Hayabusa (d3a02c) — 11/9/2012 @ 9:10 am

  29. Ironically (uh, or not), those a**hole Democrats who killed that defenseless pig for the sake of a lame joke, wouldn’t dare muster the courage to leave pork at the doorstep of a mosque or at the local chapter of CAIR because they’d fear retaliation of epic proportions.

  34. As a Conservative, ISTM that would have been a message to the GOP-Establishment from the Right, not from the Left.

  35. BTW, for all you Constitutionalst lawyers out there who belong/support the Federalist Society,
    why do we not have a Federalist Party?
    Wouldn’t that be the natural place for most of the TEA-Party types, plus the small-gov’t Libertarians?
    Do we, as Republicans (I think I’m going to be a lapsed-republican if the words of our “leaders” on The Hill are representative of the direction of the Party in the immediate future) want to follow the DC-elites such as Mitch McConnell and John Boehner any longer?

    Comment by AD-Restore the Republic/Obama Sucks! (b8ab92) — 11/9/2012 @ 9:53 am

  36. @AD. Good point. Who is to say that that is not the work of a republican, angry with the leadership?

    Comment by banned commenter (b2c6a3) — 11/9/2012 @ 9:55 am

  37. @bc:
    Historical record. Based on history, I’d blame a deranged Democrat before I’d blame a PO’d Republican.

    They’re so poor that millions of them are getting SNAP payments, and then they throw away perfectly good meat to make a political point.

  45. What is my crime? It is not my fault you guys are poor losers? I am really disappointed in you, Patterico; banning someone because you lost an election is not mature behaviour. I predicted this would happen. You guys had a clear chance of taking this from Obama but you decided to choose a candidate who has no standards. A man who would say anything to win an election. If you wanna know how to win the next a election, get the right candidate. The GOP has had this problem; you just keep picking the wrong guys and end up getting shot in the foot. There is really nothing wrong with your party, you just haven’t found someone who embodies what you believe in and is able to sell it to the undecided. Mitt was not the man. As a matter of fact I am not sure what party Mitt belongs to. Americans know a phoney when they see one. Get the right candidate and you’ve got 4 yrs to do that. Banning the Emperor because your candidate lost was really beneath you sir. And I say this with a lot of hurt.

  48. It is just a waste of meat, and an infantile gesture by a idiot person or persons. It can be safely ignored because this is the same action which will grind away at their conscience in 20 years when they witness the ruin which was wrought by their own choices.

  60. No Patterico, don’t blame Bush (as if you where anyway). The trouble is, the GOP is really the WOMP – White, Old Man Party. Heck, at least Dubya got some Latino votes. I’d be willing to bet that the visiters on this site are 90% WOMPs (and I consider myself one).

  62. The whole thing with Patraeus smells.
    If he’s resigning as a point-of-honor over his adultery – why didn’t he do it when it first ocurred?
    If it’s not a point-of-honor, why?
    It sounds to me as if he wanted to respond to the charges leveled at the Intell Community over Benghazi, but was told to keep his yap shut by either the President, or the DNI.
    This may just be his response to that muzzling.
    He’s written a book before, the next one could be very interesting.

  64. As head of the CIA, he should have been “resigned” the minute he did the first dirty — alright the morning after. He compromised himself. Where were the deputy directors responsible for security? I am very interested in the “other woman”.

  72. This is more important than most assume.

    The comparison of adversaries to a pig is Satanicly inspired. The devil loves the level of hatred that they have for us and gives them otherwise suburban wimps great ferocity.

    Comment by Seamus (285a30) — 11/10/2012 @ 1:19 am

  73. Hey, Republicans are not ALL old white men! Some of us are old white Ladies!

    I think that Obama simply succeeded in the demonization of Romney before Romney was allowed under election law to spend his campaign war chest. While he was restricted to his primary campaign funds, Obama was able to use his general election funds to destroy Romney. This seems to be a huge flaw in our election campaign laws that disproportionally advantages any incumbent who does not face a primary challenge. I believe that this flaw is why Obama was able to run such an unbelievably negative campaign as an incumbent and still win reelection. Because he certainly did not offer a platform!
