Occuturds Gone Wild: 10 Hurt When Group Attacks Diners With Bats, Hammers

Or as SanFranNan would say, “God bless them”. A mob of about about 18 people armed with hammers, bats and police batons attacked a group of diners in  the Ashford House Restaurant in suburban Chicago at noon on Saturday. Ten diners were injured and the restaurant’s interior was demolished. The melee was captured on surveillance cameras and the police managed to apprehend a car load of the the thugs.

Ten people were hurt Saturday when a group of about 18 people wearing black hoodies and face-concealing bandanas entered a southwest suburban Chicago restaurant and attacked a group of diners with metal batons and hammers.

There’s that hoodie thing again. When someone hiding inside a hoodie approaches, you should take immediate defensive action.

The attack happened around 12:45 p.m. at the Ashford House restaurant, a popular Irish restaurant, on 159th Street in Tinley Park, Ill., the Chicago Tribune reports.

According to Fox Chicago, the group — described by witnessed as white and in their late teens or early 20s — stormed into the restaurant and appeared to target one group of diners. One witness said they overheard the group chanting political slogans before entering the restaurants.

The attackers flipped over tables, broke many dishes and left several diners needing to get stitches. According to the Chicago Sun-Times10 were hurt in the incident, three of whom were hospitalized.

A long-time waitress at the restaurant described the scene to the Tribune as “the scariest … day of my life. They took out the whole restaurant. It was absolutely horrible.”

Five of the attackers are now in police custody, though no charges have been filed as of early Sunday.

Police say the attackers knew who their targets were and that the incident was not a random act of violence, the Sun-Times reports. An investigation into the attack is ongoing.

The full story and video report can be seen here.

    How is this and the wedding invasion going to be blamed on conservatives?

    Apparently this was an “Antifa” group attacking a group of “White Nationalists” that were having a meeting in the restaurant.

    As much as I enjoy the idea of racists being beaten, right now we only have the groups word on it.

    Besides, they also attacked an employee and caused massive damage to the restaurant. The fact is: this may have been a group of racists, but they had the right to peacefully assemble, this group decided they were allowed to commit illegal actions to violate their free speech.

    That’s pretty weird. I’ll keep following this story and update as needed.

    As Oriana Fallaci once said, “In Italy we have two types of Fascists, Fascists and “Anti-Fascists”.

    @ Mars:

    Apparently after they specifically targeted the “White Nationalists” they trashed the restaurant and randomly attacked other restaurant patrons including some people that were holding a wedding shower. In the minds of these “antifa” types the whole restaurant is guilty since they were hosting “White Nationalists”…even if the WN’s like did not make a reservation in the name of a WN group…the restaurant likely did not know who they were.

    odd there was no security neither by the group nor the restaurant

    OK… now the accusations are starting to appear that this was an IRA party. That would weird in Chicago

    @ brookly red:

    The restaurant didn’t know they were White Nationalists. The WN’s said they were an Irish Heritage group.

    @ The Osprey:

    The WN’s said they were an Irish Heritage group.

    If they were an Irish Heritage Group, that would NOT make them White Nationalists. I think this is a case of Charles Johnsonism. Any who says I love my culture (unless they are Muslims), is considered a Nazi. So they Occutards read Irish Heritage and immediately they think Nazis.

    I knew there was something fishy here.

    @ Rodan:

    Rodan, the WN’s were posing as an Irish heritage group to put one over on the restaurant and try to stay under the Antifas radar.

    The group that was meeting were a mixture of members of Stormfront and the Council of Conservative Citizens. They all had Celtic sounding nics and posed as an Irish heritage group so they would not have their meeting rejected by the restaurant. The WN’s were a mix of men and women in their 30’s-60’s. The antifa were all teenage/early 20ish white males.

    The attackers were from “Anti-Racist Action”.

    The information on this incident on WN and Antifa websites is far more detailed than anything on the MSM sites.

    Normally I wouldn’t care, one group of thugs beating another. But, innocents were injured, and the restaurant now has to deal with the damages caused. Plus, no matter how reprehensible the WN’s are, they committed no crime. The Antifas did.

  14. 14 | May 20, 2012 2:13 pm

    @ The Osprey:

    Ah OK. I don’t like either group, but what gives the antifa group the right to march into a restaurant and beat up a bunch of Neo-Nazis? Then they attacked the staff. This is ugly and I hope these fuckers are arrested.

    @ Rodan:

    Yes, the WN’s were doing nothing illegal. It seems we are getting the nasty Antifa types like those in Europe who attack anti-jihadist gatherings.

  16. 16 | May 20, 2012 2:29 pm

    @ The Osprey:

    I would love for them to try an attack a Tea Party rally in a CWP state like Arizona or Florida!


    I do agree with you. I don’t like WN’s but they have a right to gather. Just like the NOI, General Seti types, La Raza, Communists and which ever fringe group I hate. This is America and if you don’t like someones ideas ignore or take them on in the battlefields of ideas. This was an ugly incident.

    i would imagine if the WN are denied the right to assemble peacefully they will become more violent. That is what some on the left want.

    Peaceful groups that passively let violent members market their movement for them. A wise citizen would take note and step back from supporting the peaceful arm of the violent moment. Peta, Animal rights , env groups all have versions of this.

    I see Romney has a high level McCain advisor. And romney is already stepping back from the pro obama swings at him for being afraid of going negative on Obama. Romney needs a whole line of logic that attacks the reporter talking to him to out their political views. He shouldn’t let a soundbite go by without needling them. polarizing them. making their feelings hurt, exposing them as goons.
