Besides the assaults, racial slurs, death threats, destroying tents, and hot dog carts, union protests were “mostly peaceful”

Good Freaking Grief. Does our media have ANY sense of standards anymore. The Lonely Conservative thinks not

In Michigan the union goons knocked down tents with people insidedestroyed a hot dog vendor’s table while shouting racial epithets, and pounded on the head of a conservative commentator. So, how did the media report things? The protest was “mostly peaceful.”

We’ve been using that “mostly peaceful” gag for some time now, usually stemming from the violent Occupy rallies in 2011. Of course any time leftists agitators erupt into violence,–which is pretty much any time they get together–invariably there’s always some lamestream media outlet that calls the violence mostly peaceful.

Yes, and yesterday was a mostly peaceful day at that mall in Oregon until a madman opened fire.

Of course, if there had been Tea Party rallies in Michigan, the media narrative would have been very different.

 

Union thugs show tolerance in Michigan, Steven Crowder’s face hardest hit

I am late getting home today, something called work gets in the way sometimes, but the big news of the day is that Michigan has become the 24th right to work state, and the union bosses and their thugs are not happy. That happens when you mess with corrupt people’s money. Yes, I am calling many union bosses corrupt, and when the flow of corrupt money is threatened, well, violence soon follows. The Other McCain has video of Steven Crowder getting punched, sucker punched to be exact, four times I think, by a union thug. 

Who to blame for this, theories vary, some will point to certain Michigan Democrats who Tweeted that “there will be blood”

The Michigan House Democrats tweeted out a call to violence today over the right to work bill that was passed by Republicans in the House and Senate.

“We are going to undo 100 years of labor relations.  And there will be blood.  We will relive the battle of Overpass.” -Geiss

The Democrats later removed the tweet.

…But not before Dana Loesch saved a copy of it.

Smitty opines that it was the RAAAAACIST tent that Americans for Prosperity put up that set off the thuggery

It seems that the Americans for Prosperity tent was a hotbed ofraaaaacism, and the 1% were using it as a base for #WarOnWomen attacks. So I guess you can sympathize with the need for ‘honest’, State-fearing Union Goons to protect the turf on which the tent sat, and the power that the Union had accumulated through years of graft.

Note the rage displayed by, not Crowder, but the union thugs. Note also that Crowder could take that guy in the video. But, as Crowder noted on Hannity’s radio show today, things would have gotten very bad for him had he fought back. Crowder also challenged any one of these thugs to a one on one meeting, a challenge they will never take of course. The thug in question has been ID’d as Tony last name unsure as of now, hi Tony, lose your cool much there douche bag? Gateway Pundit has that info

The union official who sucker punched Steven Crowder today in Michigan has NOT been fully identified.
His name is Tony according to Gateway Pundit They do give a last name, but I have not seen enough to post it. I should not have been so quick to report that his name was Tony Cummings. That apparently is wrong, and I apologize for rushing to post that! Dana Loesch has more including info on the thug heard screaming about a gun in the video

Tony shown here showing how to properly debate a political issue, union style

Full Metal Moonbat: the perfect description for Michael Moore

LOVE this from Conservative hideout!

Every now and again, a great example of moonbattery is seen.  Michael Moore had a reaction to the Michigan Right to Work Vote that raised the bar to “Full Metal Moonbattery.”  Let’s take a look at some of his tweets, via Red Alert Politics…

Right to work laws essentially prohibit unions from forcing employees who do not want to be union members to pay union dues in order to keep their jobs. It also stops businesses from requiring employees be part of a union as part of their employment agreement.
“This is all about taking care of the hard-working workers in Michigan, being pro-worker and giving them freedom to make choices,” Michigan’s Republican Gov. Rick Snyder said. “The goal isn’t to divide Michigan, it is to bring Michigan together.”

So, in other words, Moore is going to embrace freedom by forcing people to join a union, even if the use of such force is illegal?  Yes, because nothing says “freedom” or “rights” like force, right?
