Wash. Examiner ^ | Aug. 7, 2009 | David Freddoso

Posted on 08/07/2009 2:16:21 PM PDT by The Old Hoosier

Dennis Rivera, health care chairman of the Service Employees International Union, denounced "radical fringe right-wingers" this afternoon for using "terrorist tactics" to thwart the discussion of health care reform.

His remarks came one day after SEIU members allegedly assaulted a conservative protestor outside a town hall meeting in St. Louis County, Mo. The end of the attack and its aftermath were caught on tape.

Look in your phone books.

Look up SERVICE EMPLOYEES UNION

Call them and tell them that you are disgusted with the thug tactics of their union.

I just called our Wichita local.

The lady claimed to have no idea what I was talking about.

This nut-job thinks exercising your first amendment rights is a terrorist tactic.

That confirms my assumption regarding the intelligence of a union boss.

Interesting to see that the ACTUAL SEIU assault on the conservative is regarded as “alleged, while the “terrorist tactics” of the Right are simply “denounced”... Nah, no libtard bias in the State-run Media scum.

We conservatives are going to have to get up to speed pretty quickly. The unions have thuggery down to a fine art and have perfected the art of projection.

Tell her to give the St. Louis local a call about 12:30 tomorrow afternoon. They’ll be able to fill her in, if they aren’t too busy.

Screw you SEIU, It is my right, my duty as a citizen of the United States to speak my mind and or protest If I feel the need. If I do not do so, I have no right to come back later and complain. I will stand my ground and will not back down. I stand 6’5” and weigh 335 no fat, you will know me by the smile on my face.

Don't suppose the socialists will suddenly EMBRACE Gitmo if they can send opponents of THEIR regime there.

You mean Saul Alinskey? They were doing it before that too.

I read an article online from 1939 where a US Senator Pepper D-Fla accused other Dems and the GOP of being shills for the Chamber of Commerce and trying to bring down America because of their hatred for Roosevelt.

Then Pepper’s faction had the gall, after some walked out, of accuing the walkouts of being intolerant of opposition views.

SEIU has no business being involved in the Health Care Reform discussion at all, since they have been exempted from the program (takeover). They have no legitimate interest, and are only present for intimidation purposes.

Lefties think they own the streets and the national franchise for political demonstrations.

Obama and his strong arm unions and racist organizations might just have awakened a sleeping.

gee, I wonder where he got that nice hat? Probably a local store.... I wonder what city. Since his union thugs want to know our addresses to apologize for what they've done.... maybe we can find out his address and ask him where he got his cool hat?

that would be nice.. just everybody sitting on the front porch having a beer and talking about hats. .... I love it.

Now we just need the names and photos of the punks in Tampa and pretty soon we'll see them show up with balaclavas like the Taliban.

Cause that's what they're leader wants.... get in our faces and hit back twice as hard.

I'm pretty sure that I'd be afraid for my life if anybody showed up from the unions. So I'd suggest that any discussion of what might and might not happen be limited to calling the police and running away to safety.

That way premeditated action can't be used to counter any spontaneous action taken in fear of our lives or fear of being able to run away.

Cause I've just got to say that if somebody showed up in my house I'd be very, very afraid for my life and my children's and wife's lives.

Video publicity is the best... beat them at their own game. Read Alinsky's rules and flip them... good for the goose, good for the gander.

too all the lib trolls reading this.... all 4 of my kids and my wife think libs are just useless parasites sucking on the tit of government... that's an 18,16, 14 and 12 year old.... all educated to think libs are trolls... too bad your schools couldn't change them...the 18 year old is off to college and studying biochemistry.... so she can't be blamed for being a "stupid" conservative... bwahahahahhaaha... she just smiles at the poly sci majors and education majors... "just like you said dad.... just want to party and sit around shooting the bull"...

The left has morphed into a totalitarian movement that seeks absolute power and tolerates no dissent. Labeling ordinary, dissenting Americans “terrorists” provides the pretext for violent repression. The building blocks of the left. . . unions, minorities, educational institutions, environmentalists. . . would applaud an unconstitutional, government crackdown on conservatives. That’s what we’re dealing with here.

That particular instance in August of 1939 was Sen Pepper and Sen Downey berated other Dems and the GOP.

Point well made. It is high time to denounce Alinsky and his “Rules for Radicals” that Barack Hussein lives by. Read the play book and turn it right back against them. Point out where and why they say what they say and lie about.

One of Alinsky’S basic rules is to find a problem and exploit it. If there is no problem say there is one and explode it into a crisis. People in panic are mindless and the Marxist agenda can go forward with no opposition. Does that sound familiar? Economy, health care, Tarp, governement takeover of corporations and government. Stand up and destroy Obama’s myths and lies and reclaim our nations constitution from the Marxist criminals.
