Hilarious Car Dealership Outwitting Labor Union Tactics And This Video May Just Be the Victory Lap
The Blaze ^ | 4/12/2014 | Dave Urbanski

Posted on 04/13/2014 5:09:32 AM PDT by rktman

Subaru of Wichita couldn’t help but notice that a union banner was looking a little lonely outside the dealership, so last month the folks in the lot figured they would keep the union sign company and make things more interesting:

Well, it's one way to handle the union protestors. Looks like the guys were doin' some laughing during the dance video.

Well Played!

Ridicule is the last and best way to combat the absurdity and evil that is the liberal-thug-communist-unions.

great Alinsky tactic
Ironic that almost all of Alinsky's disciples have no sense of humor at all, in fact making fun of them can be a very effective countermeasure.

Thanks for posting.

Great “case study” on how to to fight back at your opponent’s expense. Too bad the stale Republican Party can’t be as creative.

Too busy handing bohener kleenex to sop up his tears. For cryin’ out loud, I had a laminectomy of T10, T11 and L1 all the way down to S1 and I think I still got more backbone than most of these “conservative” clowns supposedly representing us. Sheesh...........

Funny, but that TheBlaze web page is atrocious to load in Firefox.

Did they hire Sebelius to do their website?

Agree with others VERY GOOD TACTIC, among the best that I’ve seen, if used correctly.

Instead of ignoring your opponent, you take his words, and then twist them to flip the meaning over. But you do have to be careful how you do it. Rush was basically doing that with Sandra Fluck - she started the conservation by stating: “I need my contraceptives!” and Rush picked it up from there, essentially saying “...so I can screw all I want”. So there’s a limit to how far one can carry this tactic...but it’s still useful, especially if done in a humorous.

The Republican Party is mainly concerned with advancing the self-serving interests of the Republican Party, not defending the principles of conservatism and limited government. They are, by and large, a pathetic lot of phoney hucksters. I hold out little hope for the emergence of real leadership in the party.

“twist them to flip the meaning over.”

Yes indeed. I think of it as “re-framing”.

Funny thing you’ll notice;
the left’s supposed ‘mockery’ rarely, if ever contains humor.
It is mostly infantile and crude ‘name-calling’ (teabag, denier, ad nauseum...)
I’m trying to come up with a better, one-word description to differentiate the way they isolate, polarize, & target...

Simply, it’s not ‘mockery’ really - because real mockery is FUNNY. (& THAT’S what WE do :)))

In fact, much of the left's "mockery" is angry and hateful. The President leads the way...

Politicizing a web browser?

No thanks.

But, if you want a rationale, I am using FF version 15, which pre-dates the recent Mozilla politics.

The Mozilla politics have nothing to do with the loading of TheBlaze webpage anyway.

I’m not politicizing anything, they fire someone based on a right, I simply refuse to use their product and SUPPORT an evil organization. It’s not political it’s principles. There is a vast difference there.

It ain't no picnic on IE, either, Tom. It has to be a pretty compelling article for me to click on Blaze links. For the most part, if there was never another Blaze or Whirled Nuts Daily article posted on FR, that would suit me just fine.

I use Internet Explorer and it came right up for me and blocked a pop-up.

On my laptop I needed to lock into stable version 14 last year, and it took some effort to disable the auto-update. The newer FF versions are unusable. My next browser install won't be FF.
