The question in the title couldn’t get more rhetorical, by the way:

The incident happened around 9:15 p.m. in the parking lot of the Kroger at Highland and Poplar.

A store employee caught video of the attack.

A 25-year-old man said he was attacked by the group as he walked to his car. Two Kroger employees, 17 and 18, ran to help the man. Both were repeatedly hit in the head and face.

The teens told police pumpkins “in excess of 20 pounds” were thrown on their heads while they were on the ground.

Police say both teens lost consciousness.

Eventually, a security guard stopped the attack.

The media’s going well out of its way to avoid saying any aspect of the attack was racially motivated, but switch the races of the attackers and at least one of the victims and just imagine how this would have been reported.

You WON’T be seeing any of the above footage in subsequent Moms Demand Action ads coming out against citizens’ right to self-defense at Kroger:

    "as he walked to his car"

    Sounds like 'some' could have viewed that as threatening? Will these poor victims become instant household words/hashtags at the WH? Will Teh Wun say one of them could have been His 'son'?

    For those that don't make instant Lib/dope addled 'connections' instantaneously, how IS it that Kroger and guns wound up in the same sentenced? Did leftist gun control freaks cram some denouncement petition in their face and mgmt. refused to sign on?

    Or hesitate for the length of time it would take to *research* their position? Been in many a Kroger and have never seen anyone in the aisle w/ a sub machine gun.

    The anti-gun nuts create "problems" to solve, like the Moms Demand campaign… stage pictures of threatening looking guys with guns in a Kroger and then pretend that's a problem that needs to be addressed. Gives the socialists another excuse to bash businesses too.

    Similar with global warming. Al Gore's carbon footprint creates a "problem," and he'll happily sell you carbon credits to help save the planet from its effects.

    Thanks Doug, missed the Twitchy post on that one! So essentially, there's no there THERE. Kroger supports the Law, as it is WRITTEN and… they're taking 'heat' over it. Got it.

    I will say, mega kudos out to MM & Crew for having the foresight to get out in front of the tech/Twitter medium! Tweets have been running strongly in Conservative favor as a result. Virtually every leftist narrative goes thru predictable "stages of debunking" in short order.

    Thankfully it's not become the veritable free fo' all the Democratic Media Complex assumed it WOULD be! If anything, I'd say they're de-emphasizing and downplaying its very existence?

    Doug – Have you heard the "word play" ad that the libs are running against Land here in Michigan? Comparing the "coke" piles that have stirred up some libs in the Detroit area – to the Koch brothers? The lib obsession with the Koch brothers has become laughable. They should take the time to look up the Koch brothers donations – they "spread their wealth" equally to Dems and Rupubs.

    Word play, plays on words, 'clever' kitschy little phrases seem to be all the Left.., has LEFT! This campaign season finds them running with/and OUT of anything of traction value.

    In Oregon, Dumbocrat Jeff Merkley is running with all the familiar, dog eared memes; "tax breaks for millionaires/shipping jobs overseas ( WHAT jobs? ) killing baby seals" 'attack ads'. They're so easily de-bunked it's laughable.

    At this point, I'm willing ( for illustrative purposes ) to concede that virtually *every* job that's been lost to offshoring is entirely the fault of Greedy Republicans (TM) So let's compare the #'s from the 70's and 2008. Then let's contrast that w/ Obama's #'s.

    Cruising thru the channels this am and what do I see on CNN??? Two middle age ladies – both with the last name of Koch – dubbing themselves as the Koch sisters and lamenting the "far right" ideology of the Koch brothers. The obsession of the left with the Koch's is hysterical. Again – if they would go look up the donations to various causes the Koch's donate to both liberal and conservative causes.

    If the right had any cajones they would start running ads highlighting Tom Steyer, Geo Soros and all the other wealthy communists committed to some really awful causes that even the left doesn't support.

    Right, the KB's ( as would ANY ongoing corporate concern ) plays a "split hand", employs a PR dept. and throws darts to decide which candidates/measures they might want to support. Given the [current] economic climate.

    I wish, as Michelle has pointed out repeatedly, that the GOP consistently banged the drum over the way Philip Gara LaMarche ( among others ) manages vast "dark pools" of capital for the Left?

    And of course their expropriation of public funds to blare their messaging via NPR and other components of the Dim Media Complex…
