VIDEO: Union Thugs Destroy Recall Petitions
Eyeblast TV ( Media Research Center) ^ | 3/16/2011 | Joe S.

Posted on 03/16/2011 8:26:30 AM PDT by blog.Eyeblast.tv

Armed with a bullhorn, thuggery, and the most annoying chants ever, union thugs continued their streak of ‘solidarity’.

The following took place at a recall Jim Holperin Rally in Merill, WI. As you can see, “F*ck you” is written on the ripped up petitions. The video was shot after the incident took place.

According to an eyewitness account:

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.

The video would be more impressive if it had been filmed in a friendlier aspect. Holding my head sideways to view it is a little disconcerting. Where’s the perp?

But, I am offended at the non action of the police. When is somebody going to tell these teachers that civil disobedience does not look good on them?

Unions are like cancer. They take over, and ultimately destroy whatever organism they infect.

Anyone with more than half a wit should display a modicum of civility, and stop associating with unions and union goons. The world has never had a shortage of the mindless collective, but only the lowest rung of humanity participates.

Sounds like the union thugs have violated the civil rights of those signing the petition. Where is the Justice Department????(not holding my breath)

The union chant was pretty flat. I think these guys are somewhat embarrassed by their own behavior and well they should be.

It’s nice to see that voters are stepping all over the state to tell their local school boards and assemblymen not to pass any more teachers’ contracts until Walker’s bill is released.

Dear fhayek,

While we all understand and find merit in the analogy of cancer infection to cancer, may I, your fellow Freeper, suggest an even more fun and apt analogy?

Zombie ants. Normal ant-eater fearing ants taken over by a predatory fungus turn into self-destructive ZOMBIE ANTS.

Repectfully so,

--Freeper Maximus bvw

ps. Please get back to writing magnificent treatises on Economics and Sociology.

There was nothing they could do ... it's against union rules.

Are the Recall Petitions government forms? Do they bear a government issued form number or control number?

If so, wouldn’t defacing or tearing them up qualify as destruction of government property, which I assume would be a punishable offense?

The police are union.

Nothing they WOULD do about it is more accurate.

If these so called teachers are representative of the education given to students there.....one seriously has to consider what really was taught aside from anarchy at all costs with electives in “Gimme, I want, lets go 101”.

Dear Students with a Wisconsin zipcode. Do not imply within or send a resume. We know the quality of education you have received and are not interested in employing you ...ever.

"The police are union.

Next the police will wonder about a lack of community support and the rise of vigilante justice.

C’mon. It’s not the kids fault.
I wish I had a source, Rush I think.
Someone had said that there were a lot of those students who were pissed that the teachers were not in the classroom.
And while I also blame the propaganda in the classroom, I blame the gub’ment more for the entitlement state we live in.

Agree on that part. Not the kids fault at all....just saying they need to know that their teachers have set them up for failure later on in life......

Their parents ain’t doing them any favors either voting for polidiots and administrators that let such go on.

Agreed.
I was thinking on your point. We are kinda screwed.
The next generation of workers that have gone through the current public education system won’t be able to get a job.
And if they do weasle their way into a job, they won’t be able to keep it.
All of them won’t have a choice but to be on government assistance of some kind.
That does not bode well for all the folks over 30.

Things are different in the SE corner of the state:
Racine, REA went for a reopening of their contract with RUSD. Kenosha KEA turned down the offer from KUSD to reopen their pact. Apparently KEA was nervous about losing benefits already negotiated and locked in by contract. Reopening a contract can be a two edged sword.
