AP says 
Fort Lewis College student Mark O’Donnell said he was showing people his College Republicans sweat shirt, which said “Work for us now … or work for us later,” when Maria Spero kicked him in the leg at an off-campus restaurant.
Spero then said “she should have kicked me harder and higher,” said O’Donnell. “To physically take that out on someone because you disagree with them, that is completely wrong.”
Spero, a visiting instructor of modern languages, apologized to O’Donnell in a letter dated Oct. 29.
“I acted entirely inappropriately by kicking you, giving vent to a thoughtless knee-jerk political reaction that should never have happened,” she wrote. “Before the incident, I did not know you and that you are a Fort Lewis student.”
And that would affect your actions, how?
Would have been OK to kick someone for wearing a GOP Sweatshirt, so long as he wasn’t a student?
Such is apparently what passes for thinking among Democrats.
