Full title: 17 trying to storm governor's office are arrested; larger rally is planned Friday
I cannot link the original article found on TheOlympian website (WA newspaper online) due to copyright complaint.
SEIU is protesting budget cuts to 'state services'. The union is said to have 'brought' 500 protesters to the capital and some tried to storm the Gov. Chris Gregoire's (D) office. Seventeen people were arrested and the SEIU is promising bigger protests Friday. The union insists that the budget be met by ending corp tax exemptions instead of the proposed cuts to services.
I didn't see this on the internet and I don't have TV so it was a surprise to hear of Dem versus Dem unrest in WA.
Does the Media just skip SEIU versus Dem governors now because they were all over Walker? Too unseemly? It's only news if it the Gov is GOP when the SEIU is acting thuggish?
OH *hides face in shame* Here’s a good thread on FR re conflict:
I hate it that SEIU commie scum come to our country and try to demand that the U.S. taxpayers pay there greedy, commie asses even more money than they are already being allowed to steal. These SEIU scum will pay someday.
One can only dream.
Pass the popcorn and beer
Call this event Madison II
Big difference? The two legislative houses and the gov. are all democrat.
I saw that there were to be massive demonstrations all over the country Monday from the Union thugs, especially in WI because of the vote. No one showed up. 500 angry people is not a lot for tomorrow. The visuals will be pathetic.
Agreed. But it depends on which angle the visuals are filmed from. And the MSM will also boost the crowd numbers. So actually the unions just have to have enough signs for portions of landscape that can then be photoshopped onto the rest of the visuals. Case in point - the thread article that I based the post on said 500 but another MSM source said ‘thousands’. I gotta suspect the 500 is right.........
Disturbing that they ‘tried to storm the governor’s office’ She’s knows their objections but maybe if they ‘storm’ her office....ah...maybe fear will motivate her to act in their behalf???
I guess the governor had no intent of letting her state turn into WI.
She’s also a dem, perhaps someone let leak the plans to her so her office was perpared.
People's Rally...it sounds so communist.
Good point. She gets to play ‘good’ in the game of ‘good cop/bad cop’.
Here is the story I got from orbusmax.com. Notice the video given by KING TV. I shows the SEIU anarchists in their new purple shirts working the protest playbook.
Thanks for the good link.
