We call on Representative Russ Carnahan to denounce the beating. We call on President Obama to denounce the beatings. We call on St. Louis County to prosecute the assailants to fullest extent of the law.

Will the SEIU offices be manned on a Saturday?

I would love to protest at an SEIU office near me, but I don’t think there is one close by.

The thugs won’t show up for this one...

It’s pretty clear that the Dems screwed this one up last night, and they won’t want any trouble tied DIRECTLY to teh SEIU.

The accusations of FASCISM have been flying all over the internet today.

Somebody is going to get hurt or killed if this keeps up.

It’s one thing to protest the government.

I think this is a bone-headed move and should be cancelled.

Both town halls where there was violence was due to the SEIU thugs. It’s all on video and there is no way to deny the facts.

Why not invite the Patriot Guard Riders so the Tea Party protesters can have extra protection from the union thugs at future townhall meetings?

NO FEAR. They, the DNC thugs, count on fear tactics working to silence the moral majority. We are not afraid. We are righteous, and will we not be silenced or ignored. They beat a black American because he dared to be a conservative. This will not stand. This will make us stronger. By their arrogance and unashamed socialism and thuggery, they will be defeated by a just and moral America. There are way more of us than there are of THEM.

RESIST

Never ever give up

Don't be intimidated. Videotapes will be rolling and if anyone is hurt or killed, prosecutions will follow. It's time for the Unions to fear the PUBLIC.

No we need to make the SEIU the face of the Democrats. Start using Alinsky's rules against the dems. This fits several of them.

1. "Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have. Make them unsure just how prepared we are to take it to the street."
3. "Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. They are definitely not used to being protested.
4. "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. Call for the NAACP and the ACLU to join us
5. "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. Feign surprise when the ACLU and NAACP don't show up. Chant about how the SEIU beats old men.
6. "A good tactic is one your people enjoy." Self explanatory
8. "Keep the pressure on Self explanatory
9. "The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself." If we can put one of these things together in a matter of hours then they will never know where the next tea party will erupt
13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Make the unions, with their history of brutish behavior and links to organized crime, the face of the enemy. "One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other."
