Getting Physical....Union members turn out to intimidate Bush-Cheney campaign volunteers
OpinionJournal.com ^ | October 11, 2004 | John Fund

Posted on 10/10/2004 10:39:30 PM PDT by gpapa

We may be about to experience an election unlike any we've seen in a while. The Florida recount in 2000 raised passions and blood pressure and featured some demonstrations on both sides, but there was no violence. This year, lots of groups are jostling with each other to monitor the elections in battleground states. For its part, the AFL-CIO has promised to dispatch thousands of election monitors to battleground states to watch for any hint of trouble at polling places. From the initial reports, they may be the ones for have to be watched as potential troublemakers.

Last week, in Orlando, Florida, approximately 60 union protestors stormed and ransacked the local Bush-Cheney headquarters causing considerable damage and injuring one campaign staffer, who suffered a broken wrist.

And then protect those that are doing it.

I suggest that now is the time for the NRA to dispatch thousands of election monitors to battleground states to watch for any hint of trouble at polling places.

And I suggest they come prepared.

60 RATs attack a Republican HQ and break somebody's wrist in the process...no big deal to the national press.

Isn't that special?

When RATs dial up the violence and it is encouraged by the lack of coverage and prosecution, it will only get worse. In the short term, doing your political work in unfamiliar neighborhoods on the buddy-system is not a bad idea. In the long term, my money sez they're gonna go back to bombs and bullets to force their agenda.

Esmerelda Aguilar, an AFL-CIO spokesman, says Republicans are "trying to politicize [the Orlando incident] and exaggerate the event."

Of course, from her perspective, breaking into a building and physically assaulting another person is considered peaceful and something that shouldn't scrutinized...

I hope it doesn't come to this, but they may need to bring out the police to enforce the limits where people can gather at polling places. How many feet they are required to stay away.

It disrupts the election process and certainly is intimidation! What would happen if workers fought back? Would they be charged if it is in self-defense?

I believe distance away is in reference to campaign signs and any kind of campaigning. Not sure on the footage, I believe it's 100ft here in NC

As to watching the polling places, there are a lot of voters out there and we should ALL be watching the polling places for odd things, like people with two ballots.

I'd keep that for back up. Depends on how threatened I felt. First instinct would be the baseball bat given they attacks, except of TN, were physical.

Keep the powder dry though for later.

Kerry runs around the country lying about one million disenfranchised black voters. He has absolutely no proof whatsoever. So what is he going to say about the union thugs/fascists/intimidators? Is he going to reprimand them? I doubt it. Liberalism is truly a mental disorder. Just wish Kerry would get some counseling...he surely needs it.

I tell you this: I have a CCW, I WILL be armed to the teeth on election day, and woe unto any thug attempting any type of intimidation at the polls.

Intimidation tactics of any type will result in a citizens arrest - physical aggression will result in deadly force being applied. Period.

Re:

"... In the long term, my money sez they're gonna go back to bombs and bullets to force their agenda."

When their usual shazaam and corruption fail to gain the day, history indicates that tyrant wannabes will ultimately resort to tactical options.

So I'm afraid that History rather supports your hunch, actually.

As much as I hope that you and I are both wrong about that, I will not be surprised if at least one participant in this election debacle is wearing a tag on their still, ashen blue refrigerated toe before the Elections.

The "officials" do not seem very concerned about all of the Brownshirt thuggery going on, and the MSM is keeping it all a secret, apparently, from the sheeple.
All the while the Dems are brazenly stealing the not-so-"Free" any more election right out from under our noses, virtually defying anyone to try and do anything about it.

And I don't think that all Americans are going to sit around and watch the Constitution go up in smoke while political hacks in the DOJ and FBI concern themselves more with protecting their tenure in a cushy government job than with upholding or defending said Constitution and People, as they swore an oath at one time or another to.

Lacking legal or "proper" redress for this assault on our Liberty, recalcitrant Patriots may well take the issue to the streets to confront the traitors, if the Courts in all their leftist biased PC jurisprudence refuse to hear us, and it could get really nasty before it's all over.

Sort of like it did back in 1861.

How soon a Nation forgets.

I'm sad to say that you are right on target with your analysis.

Lacking legal or "proper" redress for this assault on our Liberty, recalcitrant Patriots may well take the issue to the streets to confront the traitors, if the Courts in all their leftist biased PC jurisprudence refuse to hear us, and it could get really nasty before it's all over.

"The Tree of Liberty must oft times be refreshed with the blood of Patriots and Tyrants."

"But as for me, give me Liberty, or give me death."

"...to this end we pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our Sacred honor."

It IS going to get REALLY nasty, and very soon, I'm afraid. God grant us the strength to stand for that which is right.

Re.#12:

"...Would they be charged if it is in self-defense?"

In most liberal PC Juristictions; Probably.

Not that the intended victims should just roll over and let the thugs have their way with them - but it might not be a bad idea to have politically sympathetic and competent legal representation as well as a legal defense fund all set up in advance of an anticipated confrontation.

Said Barrister might also be able to brief Staff in legal parameters to "self defense" and how to avoid, if possible, both physical assualt and pernicious litigation and prosecution.

You know the old saw about "an ounce of prevention"...?

a mob of 60 burst into a campaign office with a handful -if that - of workers. One worker tries to get the door shut and gets wrist boken by gang and THEY blame HIM!
I'd be trying to get door closed too if 60 thugs came storming in.

Least you forget Kerry is a card carrying member of the 60's anti-American crowd that believed violence was an acceptable means to advance their agenda. Any candidate that would suck up to that phony Jessie (Race Baiting) Jackson can not be good for American politics. I have repeatedly said that before this election is put to bed there will be some violence somewhere. If you honestly listen to the members of the Black Caucus, Jessie Jackson and others it is clear they are wanting more than just a fair election. These haters and race baiter's are wanting blood and it ain't liberal in color.

Re. #18:

Sounds like a plan to me.

Unfortunately, most liberal PC Courts, Judges, and Juries don't see things quite the way that you and I do, nor do they share our sense of "Justice".

So if it comes to that...

... will we be out in time to vote in the 2020 elections?

Oh; wait!; As convicted felons, we won't get to vote, will we?
Or own firearms for the rest of our lives, for that matter.

The Dems must not be as confident in Kerry's chances as we're being led to believe if they're stooping to violence this early. There have been liberal goon squads committing these acts of thuggery all over the country in recent days, and I've heard almost nothing about it in the media. Gee, what a shock. We can't stoop to their level, but it burns me up that these people can do this and not feel one tinge of remorse. I quit the Democratic Party two years ago, and as long as I live I will never vote again for any member of that party to any office. These people put their own self interest ahead of the country, and they have to be defeated before they can inflict any more damage.

THIS:



Could be our next Attorney General, should the election be successfully stolen, as every subsequent election after that would be with impunity.

As long as America bothers with holding them, that is.

And we thought Janet El-RENIO was bad... (She WAS!!!)?

Does anyone here really think that the "Ice Queen" would hesitate a heartbeat to order her Gestappo thugs to summarily mow down any Subject who foolishly hesitated in surrendering their contraband guns or Bibles (Homeophobic "Hate Speech", you know) to the Government authorities upon demand?
And/or to give their homes and Families the "Waco" treatment?

Look at those eyes...; what do you think?

No doubt about it; this election is going to be a really important one for sure.

And methinks it rather safe to assume that the Commucrats are playing for keeps this time.

Re. #31:

"...I'd be trying to get door closed too if 60 thugs came storming in."

From what I'm starting to read here, more than one "volunteer" is quite ready, able, and willing to blow said thugs right back OUT the door should they attempt this sort of take-over on their watch.

It seems that the established "Law" is loathe to protect them, so it falls on the PEOPLE to defend THEMSELVES as needs be. And thank God we still have (albiet limited) means and rights so to do.

Of course the libbie Courts will take Defenders to the cleaners for excersizing said rights, but I for one will probably not long mourn the suitably defunct Union Thugs who might perish for their ill-advised aggression; surviving thugs may take pause to reconsider these domestic-terrorism tactics in the future.

I'm not surprised that the Campaign worker who tried to defend his or her office was blamed for their wounding; were they killed, the press and courts would likely blame them for their demise and exhonerate the perps entirely.

And it's just this sort of perverted, corrupt "justice" in America that is going to invite a dissolution of what little remains of basic civil behavior in our society, as violent and cruel "Jungle Law" rushes in to fill the natural vacuum where legitimate Constitutional Law had so long prevailed.

The stage has been set, and the ball is in play.

Only this ball had a pin inserted into it's fuze... and some one has pulled it out.

Union members have always depended more on VIOLENCE and INTIMIDATION that logic. Its one of the reasons they're in a union. They do not want something they EARN, they want something they can FORCE someone else to GIVE to them.

Enough is enough is enough. Just like the free press reaching out to get the true word out it is time to let these punks in the unions know that economically they will pay. And I hope that a lot of other Americans will buy/shop with non union companies and stores. Let them know that even well after this election we won't forget. I even stopped buying seasfood products from Mass. and will support more friendlier states that support my ideals. It is my opinion that a state like Mass. is way out to lunch, but those type of extreme politics will pay the price. It may sound childish to some people, but at least I can satisfy myself. There is no one way I will ever shop for anything in Massachusetts. I started that months ago. I wonder. hmmm if we all banded together would it wake up the other so called media in America?

I have never been able to understand why unions think its better to have 20 men working at $20/hr doing a job that is really only worth paying $10/hr, than to have 30 working at $10/hr to do the same job.

If we took out all of the WASTED labor costs due to union rules, this country would be alive with jobs and productivity.

NY City Schools pay custodians something like $75,000/yr. Can you imagine that kind of pay to empty trash cans, mop the floors, and change light bulbs. What makes it even worse, once they reach a certain point, even if they REFUSE to do their job, its almost IMPOSSIBLE to fire them.
Some only go to the school a few hours a week.

A SENSIBLE judge would take their "contract" and shred it and say, enough of this STUPIDITY. Work for a REASONABLE salary for the level of your job and get loss and someone else will have a job.

Here is an example of a Florida State Law that covers such situations. Those of you who live in states that have legally rendered the law-abiding to be nothing more than food for predators will have to devise other means:

776.031 -- Use of force in defense of others.--A person is justified in the use of force, except deadly force, against another when and to the extent that the person reasonably believes that such conduct is necessary to prevent or terminate such other's trespass on, or other tortious or criminal interference with, either real property other than a dwelling or personal property, lawfully in his or her possession or in the possession of another who is a member of his or her immediate family or household or of a person whose property he or she has a legal duty to protect. However, the person is justified in the use of deadly force only if he or she reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony.

...says she has found 3,000 new duplicate registrations in her district.

This is also disturbing; I have seen reports from all over the country about this problem with duplicate registrations. People are being "reregistered" without their knowledge or consent.

Granted, some of the "voter registration drive" groups may be doing it just to get the money they are paid for each registration. They may have no idea that there is the potential to make that person's registration appear irregular in some way, with the result that the person has trouble voting or is not allowed to vote.

Furthermore, they're sneaky: ACORN (the late Saul Alinsky's left-wing activism group) recently "reregistered" a number of people here in Florida without their knowledge, reregistering at least some of them as Republicans. This has no effect upon anyone's actual Dem vote, of course, but does make it look as if the GOP is trying something sneaky, rather than the Dems. In this case, the fraud was discovered because all of the "reregistrations" were dropped off together, filled out in the same handwriting, by ACORN members.
