Democrats, unions spread unrest to Ohio over collective bargaining

Not content with fomenting unrest in Wisconsin, the Democratic National Committee, through the President's own campaign arm Organizing for America, is helping to spread chaos in Ohio and Indiana.

Amanda Terkel writes at The Huffington Post:

A DNC staffer told The Huffington Post that the group upped its efforts in Wisconsin after Chairman Tim Kaine spoke with local legislators last week. OFA then began organizing turnout for Thursday's statehouse rally and running phone banks in Ohio targeting state senators, which are slated to continue next week. This weekend, organizers have set up door-to-door canvassing in key districts that they hope will likewise put pressure on swing lawmakers.

Reginald Fields writes at the Cleveland Plain Dealer that up to 3,800 protesters descended on that state's capital protesting a bill similar to the one in Wisconsin.

Fields also mentioned role being played by national Democrats:

President Barack Obama's campaign group Organizing For America is supporting Wisconsin union workers and is now gearing up to help workers in Ohio and Indiana, whose legislature is considering a bill to limit collective bargaining by teachers, according to the Democratic National Committee.

Ohio Republicans are trying to keep the state from going bankrupt, a situation similar to the one faced by Wisconsin lawmakers.

The AFL-CIO is also helping in the effort to generate unrest, as it did in Wisconsin. AFL-CIO protesters surrounded the home of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, forcing police to close off the street.

A news story came on first thing this morning, and I had to do a double take to figure out that it was protests in Egypt not Wisconsin.

“the President’s own campaign arm Organizing for America, is helping to spread chaos”

Operative words here - ‘spread chaos’. Anything to distract attention from the epic failure of this administration. If there’s enough chaos, 0 will declare martial law, I believe.

After reading and viewing and listening since 4am today.

It indeed appears that much of the world is coming apart at the seams.

Those who thought such cold never spread here better pull their heads out of their a$$es.

I think most of Europe remains calm and quiet, as cowards do when watching what is happening outside when the big boys have at it.

Barry should be impeached for interfering in States rights issues. He has no business using Federal powers to organize his hate group demonstrations.

I live outside the 270 loop. It's doubtful I'm in one of their targeted districts. Nevertheless, stay away from my house. I don't want to hear it.

Patience with these creeps is wearing pretty thin over here too. Let them provoke a showdown in Harrisburg as well.

Obama’s MO is to overthrow America’s concept of democracy with Marxist “democracy.” He tried to put a Marxist back in power in Honduras.

His Manchurian Candidate assignment was to destroy America from within. He has just about succeeded by causing insurmountable debt. He is fomenting riots inside our country with his army of union thugs. Since Nov. elections he has doubled down on his mission. We should have done whatever was necessary to remove him from office two years ago. Now we will suffer needlessly. Civil war is near.
