Union Violence Update – Incidents in Mich, Wisc, New Jersey

Union Thugs Attack Petition Worker, Destroys Petitions

From Joe Schoffstall we find yet another example of the way unions and Democrats use thug tactics to force their way on those around them, yet one more example of how Democrats and union thugs don’t care about democracy or the American system when it comes to their ill-gotten gains and freebies paid for on the backs of the working poor.

The scene was a petition drive aimed at recalling a Democrat state senator and the participants are a bunch of union thugs one of whom grabbed up all the completed petitions, defaced them, and then ripped them up.

As Schoffestall explains:

This video was shot minutes after a union advocate destroyed several petitions at a recall Jim Holperin Rally in Merill, WI. The event was moved to the court house grounds because the private location originally slated to host the event was threatened with arson. It should be noted that police were present when the protestor destroyed these recall petitions, but stated to us that there was nothing they could do about it. The female protestor, who had a young child with her, approached the recall table pretending to be interested in signing the petition, then proceeded to write F– You! She then ripped up other completed petitions before being stopped. Her actions were met with great approval from the rest of the crowd, who took up the chant heard in the video.

Now, this is interesting in that the left-wingers in the Badger State are doing the precise same thing — sponsoring recall drives to oust Republicans. These hatemongers on the left claim that it is the “right” to have these recall petitions and that they are honoring the democratic process by using the system to get rid of Republicans they don’t like… and they are generally correct in this sentiment. Yet when they find the other side similarly sponsoring a recall petition do they nod their heads approvingly that all Wisconsonites are engaging in the legal system for redress of grievances? Uh, nope. They get violent and try to deny others of their rights.

This is typical of the hateful left. Taking full advantage of the system for themselves is great, these union/Democrat thugs think, but Katy bar the door if anyone else tries to do the same. Un-American hypocrite thugs. That is the left through and through.

Tolerant Union Protester Damages Capitol Armed with Knife

Law breaking and violence has always been the stock and trade of unions and today’s budget conflagrations are no different as witness the most recent threatening actions by a union thug, this one in Lansing, Michigan, the Wolverine State’s capitol city.

On March 17 a man was arrested at the Capitol armed with a “sharp-edged weapon,” after he broke through a window and assaulting officers. 13 other protesters accompanying the man in his illegal entry and were charged with trespassing.

Meanwhile, in Camden, New Jersey, the police union chief there has compared Governor Chris Christie to Hitler. More of that “new tone” we keep hearing about from Democrats, I suppose.

John Willliamson, president of the police union, tried to be cagy about it, but there is little doubt of what he was saying.

Williamson did not say it directly, but he cited an historical figure to imply that the countywide plan is part of a larger plot to dismantle public employee unions in New Jersey.

“‘We must close union offices, confiscate their money and put their leaders in prison. We must reduce workers’ salaries and take away their right to strike,’” he read aloud.

“That was said on May 2, 1933, and the person who said it was Adolf Hitler.”

Asked if he was actually comparing Gov. Christie to Hitler, Williamson said, “I’m just looking at the parallel, at what’s happening across the country, and the vicious attacks that have been launched against police and fire and teachers unions.”

To be a unionista is to be a hypocrite…. and a dangerous one at that.
