Democratic Campaign Manager’s Cat Killed With Word ‘Liberal’ Written On Fur (Contains Graphic Picture)

Author: January 23, 2012 5:19 pm

Jacob Burris, campaign manager to Arkansas Democratic Congressional candidate, Ken Aden, arrived home to a horrifying site Sunday evening. The Burris family cat was laying dead on the doorstep of their house with its head bashed in, an eyeball barely hanging from the socket and the word ‘liberal’ in black marker on its side.

“To kill a child’s pet is just unconscionable,” Aden said Monday morning. “As a former combat soldier, I’ve seen the best of humanity and the worst of humanity. Whoever did this is definitely part of the worst of humanity,” he said.

“It is one thing to engage in civil political discourse, and for Republicans and Democrats to disagree with each other, which is an expected part of the political process. Taking it to this level is beyond unacceptable,” Aden said.

Aden does not believe that his opponent, incumbent Congressman Steve Womack, is responsible.

“We suspect this is the action of a rogue individual or group of individuals who are the type of folks that stoop to the lowest common denominator instead of engaging in civil political discourse,” Aden said. “It is unfortunate this has occurred, and we will await the results of the police and federal investigations.”

  • To say the person(s) responsible for this senseless act are pro life seems to be an oxymoron but I can’t really say it is or isn’t so.

    I would call the perpetrator(s) thugs who displayed mob like murderous behavior. As such I’d suggest officials set the gang task force lose to find the perpetrators and when they are found let them eat a months worth of cat food and send them down to the local tattoo shop to get an appropriate label tattooed on their foreheads. Pet Murderer jumps to mind but you can use your imagination here. They’ll be so proud that more like minded thugs will line up for their free tattoos. Perhaps I am just howling at the moon.

    This just in: Video of Cat Violence in progress.

    Feel free to make label suggestions if you care to.

  • So now it is some how in someone’s mind permissible to use a child’s pet to make a political point?

    How sad for the family, how much sadder for the person who committed this act. Why sadder for the one who committed it? Because it has taken his/her humanity completely.

  • The torture and killing of animals is how the majority of serial killers and sociopaths get their start down this road of perversion. And to take pleasure in killing is a perversion.

  • This was the act of some sick individual(s)who deserved to be punished. But to use this to demonize the Republican Party and conservatives in general is not only a logically fallacious argument, it’s a sick and idiotic thing to do itself. Let’s keep the blame where it belongs, in the individual. To use this as a political point is just as sick as the indidual(s) that did this.

    • I would agree, if not for one thing: a ton of Republican/Tea Party supporters and pundits, have been talking about doing this AND WORSE for years.

      What is it going to take, before these threats are taken seriously? Is the far-right going to have to destroy skyscrapers?

    The Rebuplican think tanks, super paks, 1% ers, encourage fear and deceit instead of reason. These tactics can only breed scum, who resort to acts like this. This is a peek into the future, if we allow the Kock’s, Rove’s etc. to buy our Government.

  • This is for Jacob Burris.. I am so very sorry that your family pet was murdered. This senseless act leaves me heartsick for your family. You may never find out who did this, but rest assured that they will suffer some type of tragedy at some point in time. I so hope your children did not see their kitty that way.

  • Poor kitty. Enjoy Catnip Heaven, where hateful scumbags aren’t admitted.

  • What I find almost as frightening as the crime itself is the fact that so many people on Facebook clicked the “Like” button. Sick, sick, sick. Hope that they lose a pet or child to some similar hate crime, and enjoy it. By the way, I don’t think it was necessary to print a photograph of the dead cat. Most of us were sufficiently traumatized by just reading the article.

  • My message to whoever did this murderous act – there is NO excuse for what you did, and, I hope that you get caught and put in jail, and, I don’t care what you think of the consequences of your act.

  • The Nazi terror against Jews started with acts just like this.

  • Republicans are murderers. They are the war mongers, hunters, gun slingers, the ones who demand to have the right to pull the trigger. They are hte ones who preach God when they are wearing gur, leather, ughs. I have no doubt this is representative of the republican party in all ways. This is a child of a well respected ‘lady’ who would never do this on her own, but would praise her male child for being ‘so brave’ to fight for ‘our country’…hateful bastards those republicans are.

      Before you automatically assume that this was committed by a republican, think for a second who this would benefit. This could easily have been done by someone trying to make Congressman Steve Womack look bad. The republican aren’t the only party with psychos running around in it. Remember Madonna Constantine???

  • Greetings and Salutations;
    I find it hard to express the contempt I feel for the sub-human monsters that did this. This sort of action tars the entire conservative point of view, and if there is a speck of honor left in that group of people, they will give up the scum that did this and condemn their actions.
    Jesus said “so as you do to the least of you, so you do to me”. I hope that, if the perpetrators of this outrage claim to be Christian that phrase burns in their mind for the rest of their lives, and they can no longer find rest.

  • Aliceandthechesirecat

    I’m sorry this happened to this innocent animal, and to the family who was, undoubtedly bonded to this cat. This isn’t the act of a small group of individuals, this act represents the thuggish mind set of conservatives in general. This is who opposes us as liberals, people who are the true terrorists, the Republican/Moral minority.

  • Caught and caged? This sicko should be caught and have HIS fucking head bashed in.

  • Michael Johnson

    Btw, Ken Aden is based out of Pope County in Arkansas, not Oklahoma. He is a good man, and I am definitely voting for him.

  • Woody McBreairty

    This is not a person who stoops to the lowest common denominator, this is a person who lives at the lowest possible level, among the scum of the earth. This person should be caught and caged and put on public display so that people will know what kind of dangerous raving maniacs live among us.
