Heads up! SEIU Stephen Lerner Tells Unions, and Students They Need To Escalate Spread The Crisis All Over US

I saw this posted on The Blaze but I'd rather not use the link because, quite frankly, I find The Blaze's site annoying with all of the pop-ups and hinky scripts. Slows by computer down.

This is the same scumbag who in a closed meeting, admitted that unions in America are finished and that people must be made to suffer to bring about their “change”.

The video has been removed (Thank you YouLube) but the story is still there.

Revealed — The Left’s Economic Terrorism Playbook: The Chase Campaign by a Coalition of Unions, Community Groups, Lawmakers and Students to Take Down US Capitalism and Redistribute Wealth & Power

S. Lerner: It seems to me that we’re in a moment where we need to figure out in a much more, through direct action, much more concrete way how we really are trying to disrupt and create uncertainty for capital, for how corporations operate. And it may sound like that’s a crazy thing that in a moment of weakness we could deal with it, but the thing about a boom and bust economy, it is actually incredibly fragile, because it’s not based on real way, well, it’s based on gambling and all of that. And so there are actually extraordinary things that we could do right now that would start to de, destabilize the folks that are in power and start to rebuild a movement. And for example, 10% of homeowners, going back to where you started, who are under, a quarter of all people who own a home are under water. Right? Their home is under water, they’re paying more for it than it’s worth. Ten percent of those people are now in strategic default, meaning they’re refusing to pay but they’re staying in their homes. That’s totally spontaneous. Right? They figured out it takes a year to kick me out of my home because the mort, the foreclosure’s backed up. I’m going to say I won’t pay. It’s just what business does, it’s a good, a good business decision. If you could double that number, you would make banks, put banks on the edge of insolvency again.

The whole thing is well worth a read. Basically they want as much financial chaos as possible to cause as much suffering as possible so they can provide the "solution".

He appears to know he belongs in jail.

So, a bunch of us around the country are thinking about who would be a really good company to hate? We decided that would be JP Morgan Chase. …. And so we’re going to roll out over the next couple of months what will hopefully be an exciting campaign about JP Morgan Chase that is really about challenge the power of Wall Street. And so what we’re looking at is in the first week of May, we get enough people together – we’re starting now – to really have a week of action in New York with the goal of … I don’t want to go into any details because I don’t know which police agents are in the room, but the goal would be that we would roll out in New York the first week in May—

(without going to the link...)

Clearly fomenting revolution. Not to overthrow the government, but to facilitate the “remaking” agenda of the corrupt administration presently in office. Of course, there is little distinction between the two goals.

Our old buddy Stephen Learner has returned with the same old plan for revolution through suffering.

There comes a time when we reeducate the police and next riot could be a few Union thugs carried away. Must happen before the real Americans might do it for the police.

That's actually something Beck tried to do by showing that the police unions stood side by side with people who would happily execute every last cop in America if they could. Unfortunately the union heads care more about their power than they do about their officers.

Clearly advocating the use of "hate" as a tool for causing civil unrest. The socialists ought to be asked to explain that statement by this SEIU representative whenever they talk about the "hate" agenda of conservatives and the Tea Party.

I'm kind of amazed that the race hustlers let this one slide in the state known for the beating death of Malice Green.

Cop Union Boss Boasts of Beating Lawmakers With Flashlights: If Soldiers Don’t Have Unions, Why Do Police and Teachers?

"We intend to walk into Lansing after the summer break and ask the Republicans who have been so eagerly screwing us, 'who's next?' If we cannot earn their respect we will do what we have always done; hit it with a flashlight until we gain compliance."

A perfect example of why public servants should not be unionized.

It would appear that way, and the SEIU and folks like Trumka and Hoffa are leading the way with the "inside out" term.

But I think when they get to that term they will find there are more of us than there are of them. If they continue to abuse the military (who have actually sworn to defend the Constitution) there will be little question. They will find this is not 1917-1921 Russia.

He has another part of the tape he played earlier. Lerner pontificating and bragging about ‘something big’ to happen in major US cities. He’ll probably have more posted on the Blaze later.

He’s on Obama, UN, colonialism, etc. right now. Interesting stuff if you can tune in.

Thanks for the links!
