Union Protesters Overwhelm Security and Barge Into Banking Meeting
The Blaze ^ | 01/19/11 | Jonathon M. Seidl

Posted on 01/19/2011 12:53:29 PM PST by blueyon

A group of about 200 union protesters overwhelmed security at a Washington, D.C. hotel and barged into a mortgage banking meeting on Wednesday, according to the Huffington Post.

HuffPo says protesters dressed in hardhats and overalls yelled “Where are the jobs?“ and ”Where is the money?“ as they pushed through security in a ”scrum” and burst into a conference room of stunned bankers. The protest was reportedly aimed at the Pulte Group — which protesters say has received $900 million in tax breaks but has not created a sufficient number of jobs.

“Those tax breaks were supposed to create jobs,” Wayne Peworchik, one of the protesters, told HuffPo. “That was President Obama‘s and Congress’s intent.”

I have had the same thing happen where I work. Our local Soros type of community action group are the ones doing it, not unions.

They are doing this crap to increase their fund raising.

“Where are the jobs?“ and ”Where is the money?“

Ask your leadership you morons.


Looks like they're winding up the threats and intimidation again. Tomorrow they're "targeting" the home of a DC area developer. Here is the flier.

This is theater folks. They are all in bed together. Smaller and medium sized banks are usually decent. The big banks like all of TV are s**t. They are in with Obama especially Citicorp, Bank America and Buffett’s Wells/Wachovia.

This president supposedly emulates Lincoln, and anyone who has done more than a cursory study of the summer of 1861, the original "Summer of Rage" directed particularly at the ancient Democrat press North of the Mason-Dixon Line (in Maryland and Pennsylvania particularly), would find this kind of mob-led direct action disturbingly familiar.

And yet a lot of these bankers were big Obama supporters who stuck their snouts in the public trough and now are making a fortune. I agree that the union thugs are being thugs and should be arrested but these crony capitalist bankers who took bailouts don’t get my sympathy.

>> Careful!!!

You’re not serious, are you? I’ll have to assume you’re being sarcastic.

Here’s the deal: you assault me on my property, and you WILL be shot dead. And I will be within my rights to do so.

And since it’s written into our LAW, I have no fear of writing about it.

This is WAY different circumstances than what happened in the thread you referenced. Night and day different.

You see it that way, and I see it that way - but the gun-grabbing speech gestapo, which has gained in ascendency since Tucson, apparently don’t feel the need to make that fine of a distinction....

My post was mostly tongue-in-cheek, but still.... ;)

Fair enough; point taken.

By the way, I’m not sure the “gun-grabbing speech gestapo” really HAVE “gained ascendency”, simply because they’ve gained MSM air time.

Just because you and Admin Mod agree doesn’t mean you’re both right.

Could be you’re both politically correct to a fault, or hypersensitive, or making a problem where there is none.

They should be protesting at the White House if they want to protest the bankers they could catch up with Blankfein a lifelong Democrat there and they could tell obama about his buddy Jamie Dimon at the same time.

No that just creates “matyrs” for the cause . Instead get a few dozen of the 1 lbs sized riot control sized pepper spray foggers ,gas masks, 4-6 D cell mag-light flashlights to just swing at ankles & knees . No martyrs for the cause & the thugs get stopped in thier tracks.
