Sounds like the beating was worse than we thought, but thats what he gets for being a political terrorist. His lawyers promising a civil suit against the goons and possibly SEIU itself if he can prove that they were intimidating people and starting trouble at the unions behest. Heres a little something for the jury from one of their directors down in Tampa last night:
Asked earlier today about possible disruption at the event, Kim Diehl of SEIU said, Were prepared. We have strategies to deal with it if it should come up.
Indeed they do. Be sure to read the bosss post about some of the pleasantries that were exchanged this afternoon on Sebeliuss conference call with SEIU. Hint: It involves a cabinet officer of the United States government sitting silently by while a union capo accuses protesters of terrorist tactics.

I will to the best of my ability boycott the products produced by any union I am able to identify these thugs as belonging to.
” gubbermint employees. Your tax dolars at work. “
There’s just *got* to be an oxymoron in there, somewhere... ;~)
I can’t begin to tell you what a political mistake this is.
Obama and Emmanuel are using tactics appropriate to Cuba and Venezuela.
This is a tactical mistake. They believe that intimidation will stop the protests and energize their base.
By not understanding that their voters were comprised of people who simply had enough of Bush, and not a mandate for Obama, they have now allienated people completely.
Everyone needs to go with friends to these meetings, and everyone should have at least one recording device with them. Someone should have a videocam. then you can copy this over to a dvd and/or cd-rom for copying and preserving and for copies to file as evidence.
One of these days ...someone is going to pull a knife or a gun...someone...and then its going to be Fort Sumter all over again. Once it starts no one knows where it will end. History tells us it can only be a disaster.
This may be the start of bringing Obama and his administration down. It’s really time to starting indicting and convicting these people.
Boycott anything made by a union that you can identify, especially the autos and trucks.
They work just like they’re paid, ie, “not much” and “once a month”
SEIU told their memebers to show up, told them to wear their t-shirts. The guys who beat him up are clearly wearing those t-shirts. IT’s clear to me that SEIU acted recklessly in setting up the situation. Combined with their leadership’s calls for punch back twice as hard and you’ve got a multi-million dollar lawsuit that the media will never ever cover.
Marking to watch video in full later.
ACORN/SEIU = Obama’s Baseej
If you have a Youtube account, please post up at these SEIU or others vids to show shupport for the TeaParty and against the thugs. If you dont have a youtube account get one and post up there. The ‘war” is fought on many fronts and YouTube is just one of them. Do your part!
Shouldn’t there be a donkey on your pic and not an elephant.
They are using the same tactics they used to use in Chicago.
Thing is...Chicago is something like 85% liberal. They are dealing with a different constituency nationwide. More like 50-50.
I hope they keep going with this. And they will because they know no other way.
Ooh, such a clever DUmmie!
This is inevitable. Once it starts, events will take on a life and a momentum of their own. This will be one reality that no one can evade.
The last 250 years have been marked by the demise of those foolish or brazen enough to misjudge the file line that separates outraging the average American and enraging them. When enraged the gates of hell have not stood against them.
Screw you, pal. You’re the problem. I’ve got a lot of differnt solutions. They all produce the same result. Hide while you can.
Yep. My bad. Pulled the wrong one.
Chill out guys. Lurker is one of us. He just used the wrong image. There are two diffent images out like that, one has the republican “elephant” and the other has the democrat “jackass.” He didn’t check the background first.
Obama is the one that sent these goons out yesterday!! The ORDER TO BEAT UP CITIZENS OPPOSED TO HIS MARXIST TAKEOVER CAME FROM THE WHITE HOUSE!!
I agree this is not a tactile mistake. This is how thugs consolidate power - through violence and intimidation.
Obama is a thug calling out his muscle.
Note that in Iran, to beat down the protesters after the election they called on shadow militia groups and not the official law enforcement or military.
Yep. My bad.
It better be soon before he organizes the civilian security force, larger and better equipped than the regular army!!!
Yikes - I mistook you for a DUer. My bad.
More proof that we must not buy anything made by any union, no matter what. I stand by my assertion that buying anything made in China is far more patriotic than buying anything made by any union worker in the USA.
The boycott word was used repeatedly on the thread re the “union label.” I’m on board!
“The ORDER TO BEAT UP CITIZENS OPPOSED TO HIS MARXIST TAKEOVER CAME FROM THE WHITE HOUSE!!”
It came from Rahm.......plausible deniability for the Dictator in Chief.
We in Chicago know that these intimidation tactics work only in the Obama neighborhood.
The SEIU plunged Zer0’s head into dog doo-doo.
These tactics worked 80 yrs ago and still prevail
in the hard core south side but Chicagoans ,though they vote democrat, do not tolerate thuggish behavior once it is known.
Today street thugs are not nedded the real corruption and bullying occurs at the very top.
Thank you Mr. Gladney for exercising your rights by trying to engage in a bit of Free Enterprise.
Its too bad you got caught in the crossfire but I hope the court system awards you well!
Nothing will come of this. There will be no prosecutions, unlikely that charges will even be filed.
The Black Panther thugs on election day. What was the guys name that was knocked down at a rally or protest years ago, I think in NJ. My brain says Don Adams but my memory has been getting faulty of late. I can't recall any instances where our side was assaulted and their side was prosecuted. I would like to say otherwise but the libs have controlled the courts for quite a while now, and you will have a hard time prosecuting any lib in a lib friendly court.
This will be pushed aside, action delayed, put on the back burner, and then months from now, quietly, without fanfare, dismissed.
If President Obama doesn’t invite Kenneth Gladney, the black man roughed up by people at a town hall meeting to the White House for a beer, you will know who he is! No question that he will not. He will not even mention it. He is not for black people, he is not for the poor, he is not for the down trodden in any way.
Come on Obama, prove me wrong. Mention this poor man and his injuries without politics. Mention that the people who attacked him did something wrong. Mention that they weren’t African American. Bet you don’t. Bet you don’t hear a word out of any Democrat about what was done to that poor man. I have been watching these people for a lot of years. They are dollar store trinkets! If you want something real, vote them out next election.
If I am wrong, you will see this addressed by the Democratic Party. Dollars to doughnuts you don’t.
No problem, conclusions are so easily jumped to!
Great pic! The SEIU, the new SS?
Come to think of it, this hole thing is about dollars and doughnuts, isn't it?
It’s long past time to use the courts to stop this. Who would indict them; a liberal DA? Who would convict them; a liberal jury? Who would sentence them; a liberal judge?
No, no and no. We (that’s you and me and all our friends)will have to take care of it. We just have to stop waiting for someone else to step up and lead us and instead stand up and lead. The time when we could have voted a better outcome has come and gone and now we will have to fight. I am no champion of war. I hate it worse than almost anything. Anything except slavery.
With a few exceptions we have not forged our own chains. Rather we have forged them for our children and grandchildren. I look at photos of my grandparents and feel pride stirring my heart when I contemplate the sacrifices they made so I might live in comfort. My grandchildren may think of me only with loathing and disgust if I allow this thug to prevail through gangster tactics.
What will yours think of you?

It saddens me very much to say that such intimidation tactics do work, and that they tend to work pretty consistently.
Dems and their union thugs have done this and much worse for many many years in the political process to great effect.
Hitler came to power not because he had the majority on his side, but because he had a minority willing to employ such tactics against his political opponents and the media.
Now that the main stream media today is compliant and giving Dems air cover 24 by 7, expect we will see much more outright intimidation tactics from the Dems and their agents.
>History tells us it can only be a disaster.
History tells us this can be a Renaissance for Liberty and Freedom.
Bring weapons and help evolution :)
I don’t advocate that, I know you’re trying to be humorous.
Why the Republican symbol?
this is OBVIOUSLY Democrat Fascism!
