Authorities are searching for a healthcare reform activist today who they said bit off the finger of a 65-year-old counter-demonstrator during a fight at a MoveOn.org rally in Thousand Oaks.

“It all started with their difference in philosophy over healthcare reform,” said Senior Deputy Eric Buschow of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department.

The incident occurred about 7 p.m. Wednesday at a “We Can’t Afford to Wait Vigil” organized by affiliates of the activist group MoveOn.org, which drew supporters of President Obama’s healthcare plan, Buschow said. The rally also attracted several counter-protesters, he said.

During the rally at Lynn Road and Hillcrest Drive, near the Oaks Mall, the two men got into a heated argument and began fighting.

“At which point, one man bit off the left pinky of the other,” Buschow said.

I guess we can conclude that Obama supporters like finger food?

If moveon.org wouldn't be doing all this astroturfing, this never would have happened.

Meh, the guy who lost his finger reads as the agressor.

There should be no violence at such events.

Looks like a sound strategy to me. Force opponents to seek healthcare and maybe they'll recognize the need for reform.

Seriously? Getting maimed is "getting what was coming to him?"

Is this the new age of Obama? You disagree with us and we maim you?

Yes we can-nibal!

in all fairness, there was a gathering nearby called “We Can’t Afford to Wait to Eat Vigil".... this guy was just probably at the wrong one.

And hungry.

Only in America do activists bite of fingers to prove the necessity for healthcare reform.

Hmm -- the pro health care program violently bit the finger off of the anti guv program -- but its the anti Obama's plan that are labeled as thugs, nazis, anti americans -- I am sure Pelosi and company will talk about how the anti health care plan shoved his finger into the guys mouth and then hit him on the top of the head so hard the finger was bit off --

This is from the article:

"We’re still trying to figure out who was the aggressor,” Buschow said."

I guess I'm trying to figure out why you think the 65 year old was the aggressor? And even if he was, does that justify maiming?

I heard an eyewitness interview today who said the pro-plan guy walked across the street to the anti-plan side and started the argument. He then picked out the weakest looking person there(the 65 year old) to continue the argument. Not sure how the 65 year old could be considered an aggressor under those circumstances. :idunno:

And he's a victim because it was his finger bitten off.
