I don't know Human Events reporter Emily Miller, but from what we see on this video she seems like a pretty calm person. And it doesn't seem like she did anything to provoke this situation.
Miss Miller is heard on the video saying, “Please don’t hit me.” The protester proceeds to yell at the reporter, “Well get out of the way! What do you think this is? A--hole.” The activist was attempting to meet Rangel herself. Miss Miller continued videotaping the event, when suddenly the same unhinged protester lunged at her, hit her on the arm, and yelled, “Don’t take my picture.”

We've learned a few things from this video. We found the place, outside of certain sectors in his home district, where Charlie Rangel is popular! We are pretty clear that the woman in the red shirt does not want her picture to be taken. Maybe she's Amish. Maybe she's shy. Shy and violent. Shy and violent and profane. And fond of gold bracelets. And don't forget the message of the red shirt: "I 'Heart' Being Me." Except it had the symbol of the heart instead of the word. Well if she loves being herself, and if the video shows us that self, then she might want to reconsider the criteria.
