#6 Violent Tea Partier: Larry Morgan

Posted: January 14, 2011 in Tea Party, Tea Party Intimidation, Tea Party Violence

This Tea Party douchebag felt that speaking up for voting for Obama warranted breaking pool stick in half across his victim’s face, causing severe injuries. His victim, Patrick O’Neill, then 24, was hospitalized for five days and endured a months-long recovery, after suffering numerous facial fractures.

Jurors convicted Larry Morgan of aggravated assault and two counts of aggravated battery and sentenced to serve eight years in prison for the Jan. 31, 2009 incident — a few days after Obama’s inauguration. Deliberations took only an hour.

The Tea Party’s toxic brew of xenophobia, racism, violence (carefully couched in ‘plausible deniability’), glorification of ignorance and flat-out paranoia is a magnet for violent asshats like Morgan, and just as powerful a trigger for their violent rages.
