Mostly Peaceful Gay Marriage Supporter Punches Man in Face Outside Supreme Court Hearings

Posted by on Mar 27, 2013 at 8:16 am

A professional activist, if that’s what you want to call him. A sterling resume dating back to the Occupy DC movement and protesting in support of the late thug Trayvon Martin. Now he’s MovedOn to gay marriage. Sounds like a swell guy.

Midway through a National Organization protest in front of the US Supreme Court building, punches flew. One, which landed on the face of a marcher, was thrown by gay marriage advocate Sergei Kostin, a former Occupy DC member whom a source in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Department described as a ‘professional activist.’

The other was a gut-punch that Kostin told MailOnline provoked him – one that no one else saw. If that punch flew, one observer countered, however, it’s not clear how hard it could have been.

But if the swinging fists were half-imagined, the ideological confrontation on Tuesday was genuine. Both sides of the debate were out in force, with Christian opponents easily outnumbering advocates for gay marriage.

This is how thugs behave. Don’t get their way and they become violent. Just watch if they don’t get their way in the Supreme Court.

In a telephone interview with MailOnline, Kostin said he only threw an uppercut after he was attacked first, when he stepped between the anti-gay-marriage crowd and a lone sign-carrying woman, in an attempt to protect her.

‘This gentleman had his hand on my chest,’ Kostin said. ‘I’ve been an activist for several years, and that kind of stuff doesn’t bother me. But when he got closer to me, he threw a punch into my stomach.’

‘In turn, when he did that I reacted back to him. That’s when I clocked him.’

He’s not even denying it, so why hasn’t he been arrested for assaulting this man?

    I like how he presented himself as prince charming, protecting a woman. he’s a professional activist. This makes him no different from the assholes at the Democrat/lawyer staffed westboro “baptist church”. They launch attacks and then file suits and/or gain publicity.

    I agree, why wouldn’t this slime be arrested after going from “suspect” to “admitted perpetrator”?
