We Do Not Negotiate With (Union) TerroristsPolitics

…and these people are terrorists.

Share this far and wide, folks.  Until they start policing their own and calling out violence for what it is — they own it.

Clearly, they are willing to fight for their beliefs.

    Yeah, this looked pretty bad for unions but this is the culture we’re celebrating, the thuggery of the mob. Resembles Wisconsin.

    NBC anchor Brian Williams referred to it all meekly as “a boisterous day in the state capital.”

  • Julie Hunter

    Union members work hard every day, teaching our kids, fighting fires,
    caring for our veterans, building roads, etc. The idea that an elected
    official would compare hard-working members of our communities to the
    terrorists who seek to destroy our way of life is absurd. Mr. Kenney owes an apology to the thousands of
    middle-class families he just denigrated as not devoted to the American
    Dream.

      Julie, he didn’t compare all union members to terrorists. He compared the union enforcer thugs who go around decking people and destroying property “terrorists.” Law-abiding members of unions are not at all included in that designation but everyone – including you – should be offended by those who shrug their shoulders at mob violence in America..

        I don’t see the part where the blogger made that distinction. could you point that out to me?

      • Stephen

        Of course he called union members – like myself – terrorists. There is evidence that this episode was staged in the dismal tradition of Fox. Even so, people should not be provoked. The fight for the right to organize is too important to let it be maligned and lied about by people like this blogger.

          I see. Let’s blame the messenger. Nice.

          Don’t worry about the guy throwing haymakers – he did nothing wrong.

          “Just trying to protect the right to organize”….right.

          By forcing other people to join organizations just so that they can work and feed their family? Oh, and did I mention the haymakers?

          If you engage in this sort of violence, please turn yourself in to the police — now. Because yes… the definition of a terrorist is one who uses violence as a tool to push political ends.

          Cheers!

            Shaun, Maybe you should look up the definition of a terrorist. Noun1.terrorist

            instilling fear
            radical cell, terrorist cell
            – a cell of terrorists (usually 3 to 5 members); “to insure operational
            security the members of adjacent terrorist cells usually don’t know
            each other or the identity of their leadership”

      I apologize for not being more clear: if you are a union member and you are not denouncing this sort of violence, then you are aiding and abetting domestic terrorism.

      Perhaps union thugs such as the ones cheering this sort of violence ought to apologize to the millions of American jobs they have destroyed through their own greed? Or even better — perhaps they should start at home and police their own union members? Or better still… unequivocally condemn this violence and all forms of violence to pursue your political goals?

      Until then… don’t expect tears from main street America, folks.

  • csalafia

    Crowder admitted he was there to pick a fight and to deliberately provoke union members to get this sort of response.

    But don’t let facts get in the way of your faux indignation.

    • http://bearingdrift.com/ J.R. Hoeft

      Guess that justifies the punches thrown, eh?

      • csalafia

        If one goes looking to start a fight, one shouldn’t be surprised when they find one.
