Gen. Don Bolduc Did Not Get “Hit”

by | Nov 4, 2022


The Libertarian Party of New Hampshire has been getting under the skin of LP Senate candidate Jeremy Kauffman’s war hawk opponents. Kauffman has been excluded from the debates, which the party is protesting. The latest controversy involves Republican candidate General Don Bolduc’s claim that he was “hit” by Joseph Hart, an antiwar, libertarian activist who was attempting to interview him before a debate. According to Goffstown police, Hart has been charged with criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.The fact that Hart has been charged with disorderly conduct and not battery suggests local prosecutors do not believe they can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Hart struck Bolduc, according to Patrick Macfarlane, our Justin Raimondo Fellow who is also an attorney in private practice.

The media is now pushing the narrative that he was attacked. On his Fox News show, Sean Hannity helped Bolduc double down last night. The multi-angle videos of the altercation reveal that Hart did not assault Bolduc. If anything, Bolduc’s supporters committed the assault.
