Union thugs aren't helping Obama on health care
nj.com ^ | August 8, 2009 | Paul Mulshine

Posted on 08/08/2009 4:29:30 PM PDT by libstripper

I wonder who's the genius who first thought up the idea of having a bunch of thugs all wearing the same colored shirts show up to intimidate opponents of the government.

Now I remember! It was that funny little guy with the mustache from Austria. What's his name again? I think it was "Schicklgruber" or something.

Anyway, that sort of stunt loses a little something when it crosses the Atlantic, as you can see from the above video. A gang of thugs wearing matching shirts bearing the initials of the Service Employees International Union can be seen engaging in what appears to be an attack on a person who was handing out "Don't tread on me" flags in opposition to the Obama administration's health-care plans.

Looks like Corzine tried this Red Guard trick in N. J. on the toll road issue and that began his slide. Let's hope the same happens to the Illegal Alien.

Maybe the “Purple Army” (Dennis Rivera’s description of his SEIU thugs, who wear purple shirts) will be Red Obama’s undoing. We can only hope.

There’s a lot of possible names for a President who uses paid thugs to intimidate those who disagree with his policies... dictatorial President, fascist President, authoritarian President. But one name that sure isn’t right is American President.

I just checked the huffingtonpost to see how they are presenting it to their side. Looks like the union thugs are whining about threats to them since they are coming to the town hall meetings and opposing the protestors. Of course, they are claiming someone wrote a warning note to them and called President Obama a racial name. They are very very “worried about the violence.”

It is a smart tactic for the Husseinite goons to wear purple shirts. The color does not lend itself to slogans.Somehow decrying Hussein’s “purple-shirt” tactics just doesn’t resonate like “brown-shirt.”

Yeah, ‘worried about the violence’ in the same sense as “nice little family you have there, hate to see anything happen to them”.

They must be having a tough time trying to figure out how to CAUSE violence on little old ladies and frail old men protesting Obamacare and get away with it. If they plan it right, the alphabet news channels can film it in a manner acceptable to government media dictates and post it on the usual liberal lamebrain sites.

BamBam and his cult believe he is a king (if not a god). Purple has always been associated with royalty. So in that sense, it fits very well.

The SEIU thugs have retreated. They didn't even come into their office today in St. Louis where there were anti-Obamacare protestors. For now, the coast is clear and safe for the town hall protestors.

The only unknown is whether other groups not directed or not beholden to the WH will decide to copy the SEIU's tactics.

I have an idea. Let’s all wear purple shirts, then when the goons start hitting people we can punch back and the videos will simply show all purple shirted SEIU people fighting. Just the fact everyone was wearing purple would pretty much screw them up.

Purple fits but is not slogan material. You can’t make it sound “ominous” the way a single syllable color shirt does, well not all single syllable colors work so well, either; Pink comes to mind.

I've taken jobs that I wouldn't want to put on a resume when times were tough, so I can understand why some out of luck folks might temporarily take a job as a *Stall Effluent Inspector*, but to join the *Stall Effluent Inspection Union* ~ and to have wear a T shirt in public with a pile of fellow turdnado chasers identifying what they do for a living - like no one can figure it out on their own....well, I guess I'd feel a little pissed on too.

I read they're taking their case to Adriana Huffington. Did you know that Gov. Arnold offered her a bit part in the latest Terminator's lavatory scene ~ she put's the skat in SEIU's meow.

But Obama doesn’t care. Somebody in the White House told HHS Secretary to praise the SEIU. Which Sebelius promptly did, by conference call.

Sebelius has to go.

That was what I thought, too. It's odd that he should have identified them this way. We have to be on the lookout for that color (purple). Incidentally, it's a color that was used heavily by gays and "feminists" (mostly lesbians) in the 1980s and onwards and still has heavy leftist and gay connotations.

We’ll see if the union thug plan worked ir not when we see the results of the TH meetings the next 10 days. If they return to how they were then it didn’t work, if they don’t then the attacks were very successful and indicates we are in deep dodo.

That's the sort of thing that happens when a politician misreads peaceful protest and over-reacts. Will the Obama Democrats learn their lesson? I certainly hope not. Keep those T-shirted goons coming, guys! It's always fun to watch a politician commit political suicide.

Mulshine is a very bright author who has been a guest on Michael Savage's radio show, (who unfortunately thinks lowly of Sarah Palin) and has a clear view of the relationship between thugs and Democrats.

I believe that the law here in Texas (and probably a number of other states) permits concealed weapon holders to fire on people if they have reason to think that an innocent life is in danger.

The SEIU should be VERY CAREFUL about assaulting people in flyover country...they may start losing members.

My brother, retired Army Sgt. major, sent this email tonight in regard to what these union thugs are up to:

“I KNOW THESE THUGS LIKE A BOOK AND LET ME TELL YOU WHAT THEY ARE UP TO;

-—THEY ARE GEARING UP TO TURN THE THUGS LOOSE ON YOU, BUT FIRST THEY ARE HAVING ALL THEIR MEDIA WHORES LAY THE GROUND WORK BY PAINTING YOU AS THE SOURCE OF THE VIOLENCE AND EXTREMISM, SO THEY CAN BLAME YOU WHEN IT HAPPENS!

THE USUAL SUSPECTS ( CNN, MSNBC, NPR, HUFFINGTON POST ETC. ETC. ) ARE WORKING IN HARMONY TO PAINT YOU AS UNREASONABLE RIGHT WING, GUN TOTTING EXTREMISTS / RACISTS ETC. ETC.

YOU BETTER WATCH OUT, AND BE READY!!!

JIM..the sergeants major”

That sounds very plausable. That is why, while they (the enemies of my Country) are probably thinking 2 or 3 steps ahead, WE need to be ready for it and be thinking 3 or 4 steps ahead, in terms of strategy. We need counter strategy if/when they pull this stuff as retired Army Sgt. major suspects and knows them to do.

I have followed Communist trade unionist tactics in various parts of the world and it all fits together. This is exactly what they are planning. Expect it in the next 5 to 7 days in my opinion. The MSM will be a critical part in the aftermath to skewer it to make patriots look like the aggressors. You can see it come, fellow Americans.
