An old adage holds that a conservative is simply a liberal mugged by reality. In that vein, a left-wing, anti-cop Democratic operative in Minnesota is now calling for “accountability” after being mugged, assaulted and severely injured by a gang of thugs.
As reported by Tampa Free Press on Thursday, Shivanthi Sathanandan, a Minneapolis resident and the second vice chairwoman of the Democratic Farmer Labor Party, described the attack and demanded justice in a lengthy Facebook post, which included the image of her face still bloodied from the attack.
“Yesterday my children and I were violently car jacked in the driveway of our home in Minneapolis. Four very young men, all carrying guns, beat me violently down to the ground in front of our kids. The young men held our neighbors up at gunpoint when they ran over and tried to help me. All in broad daylight,” she said.

Sathanandan implored people to “look at my face,” the face of a “mother who just had the sh$t beaten out of her” in front of her 4-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son. She recounted that her son was “wailing for someone to come help because bad guys are murdering his Mama in the back yard.”
“I have a broken leg, deep lacerations on my head, bruising and cuts all over my body. And I have rage,” she said.
The Democratic leader said she was confident her assailants had attacked others before her, and yet “they are still on OUR STREETS. Killing mothers. Giving babies psychological trauma that a lifetime of therapy cannot erase. With no hesitation and no remorse.”
“We need to get illegal guns off of our streets, catch these young people who are running wild creating chaos across our city and HOLD THEM IN CUSTODY AND PROSECUTE THEM,” she ranted. “PERIOD.”
“Look at my face. REMEMBER ME when you are thinking about supporting letting juveniles and young people out of custody to roam our streets instead of HOLDING THEM ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS,” Sathanandan continued. “You could have been reading the obituary for me and my children today.”
She ended the post by expressing gratitude to the “incredible” cops who responded and helped her.
The irony, of course, is Sathanandan now demands what she once wanted to deny others.
After the death of George Floyd in 2020, and during the ensuing riots by Black Lives Matter, Sathanandan claimed she and other left-wing activists were “going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department.”
In June 2020, she added, the Minneapolis Police Department “has systematically failed the Black Community, they have failed ALL OF US. It’s time to build a new infrastructure that works for ALL communities. If you are still disagreeing with that BASIC FACT, I’m not sure what to say to you.”
