More Violence, and thuggery from the hate filled left. WISC. GAY GOP WORKER HOSPITALIZED IN POLITICALLY MOTIVATED ATTACK Violent left-wing thuggery in Wisconsin is becoming a trend in the weeks leading up to November's presidential election. After the son of State Senator Neal Kedzie, Sean, was brutally beaten late last week, another individual with ties to a GOP politician has suffered a severe beating with explicitly political motivations. Kyle Wood, an openly gay Republican working to elect Republican Chad Lee to Congress, was attacked in an apparent hate crime while getting ready for work in his home. âI was getting ready for work and there was a knock at the door,â Wood emailed The Daily Caller late Wednesday. âI opened it, and a guy wrapped a ligature around my neck, slammed my head into the doorway, and smashed my face into a mirror, telling me âYou should have kept your [f*******] mouth shut.ââ âHe then kidney-punched me, while at the same time saying I was âwarned,â and continued to beat me,â he added. Wood told The Daily Caller that vandalism preceding the assault, along with his attackerâs statements during the incident, suggested his sexual orientation and his politics each played a role. Wood told The Daily Caller that vandalism preceding the assault, along with his attackerâs statements during the incident, suggested his sexual orientation and his politics each played a role. Wood said his attackerâs reference to a warning likely pointed to graffiti he found painted on his car last week. The vandalism included the phrases âhouse trained republican faggot,â âtraitor,â and âur like a jew 4 hitler.â Wood explained he believed the attack and slurs are sparked from his openly gay status and supporting a straight Republican against a gay Democrat, Mark Pocan. Lee and Pocan are battling over Rep. Tammy Baldwinâs seat, currently being vacated in her run for Senate against former Governor Tommy Thomson. Wood suffered lacerations to his neck, a concussion, and eyes swollen shut from the beating, and was unable to move the right side of his body immediately following the attack.
