Steven Crowder attempted to start a dialogue at a protest against the Right To Work bill in Michigan (which prohibits coercion to join a union, as you can imagine the Bolsheviks running them don't like that).
As we've come to expect from the left, every "fear" and accusation of violence they have coming from conservatives is proven to be pure projection of their on proclivities whenever they get the chance to show it.
See the video of Crowder getting attacked here. If you're on Twitter retweet it here.
Don’t expect much help from unionized LEOs or much indignation from unionized MSMers.
Our labor unions are really the reason that we cannot compete on the world market and that our jobs are moving overseas.
Private sector union participation rate is less than 7 percent of the workforce. Not defending unions but that isn't the reason why jobs are offshored.
Thay are not just thugs, they are criminals. When I googled this guys name (Tony Cummings) I got a list of union officials who were indicted for theft of union monies. This guy appears on June 1st. I guess I know now where Most of the Obama union donations came from.
“Private sector union participation rate is less than 7 percent of the workforce. Not defending unions but that isn’t the reason why jobs are offshored.”
Do you have any idea how far down the union percentage to labor has gone the last fifty years? It is all because of monopolistic power granted to the unions and their misuse of that power that has been behind the vast majority of loss of jobs in the US. Then I suppose one could add in other regulations on top, but most are there to support unions anyway...unions are horrible organizations that are going to die (thank God) whether the government continues to force them upon us or not. Look how well it worked out for the other communists and you will begin to understand maybe.
Don’t waste your time. He makes the SAME COMMENT every time that a union story is posted. We ALL know the damage they do...for if they were as irrelevant as he implies, there wouldn’t be RIOTING in Michigan today.
Growing up and living in a union county, I will make it quite clear that if you go to events like this, you go prepared to crack heads and bust kneecaps, or don’t go at all. A stun gun, extendable baton, and pepper spray are a must. No jacking around playing ‘dialogue’ games.
Might be another guy. The Tony Cummings in the document was with the steel workers in ohio.
Of course it may be the same one, he could have moved.
FACT: 95% percent of the private sector workforce is non-union.
FDR was no fan of public employee unions
Even President Franklin Roosevelt, a friend of private-sector unionism, drew a line when it came to government workers: “Meticulous attention,” the president insisted in 1937, “should be paid to the special relations and obligations of public servants to the public itself and to the Government .The process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service.”
The reason? F.D.R. believed that “[a] strike of public employees manifests nothing less than an intent on their part to obstruct the operations of government until their demands are satisfied. Such action looking toward the paralysis of government by those who have sworn to support it is unthinkable and intolerable.”
FACT: protectionist laws for unions cover the entire workforce...unions are over buddy, and they should be. They are literally bad for everyone concerned.
