BEWARE: SEIUís Purple Army marches on Massachusetts
Michelle Malkin ^ | 01/16/10 | Michelle Malkin

They’ve dumped nearly a $1 million of rank-and-file dues into Martha Antoinette Coakley’s coffers.

They “pulled out all the stops” before the primary and they’ll be throwing all their ground troops into the Bay State over the weekend.

We know how the SEIU thugs operate. I told you in Culture of Corruption about Andy Stern’s organizational motto: “[W]e prefer to use the power of persuasion, but if that doesn’t work we use the persuasion of power.”

They’ll go after Boy Scouts.

And baby-sitters.

And home health-care providers.

They raided their treasury to pour $60-$80 million into Obama and the Democrats’ 2008 campaigns.

They’re not about to roll over and play nice while their 60-vote supermajority slips away.

Hotline On Call reports on the SEIU’s mobilization this weekend. Where are the counterforces?

SEIU has stepped up its involvement in MA in the waning days of the race, sending hundreds of volunteers and hundreds of thousands of dollars to the state on behalf of AG Martha Coakley (D).

The union, one of the most powerful arrows in the Dem quiver, is spending $685K on TV ads touting Coakley and slamming state Sen. Scott Brown (R), and a spokesperson for SEIU says it will have 300 volunteers on the ground on Tuesday.

The heightened activity has some GOPers on edge, and at least one group is worried SEIU could be taking over for ACORN as a top organizational tool benefiting Dem candidates.

“This whole thing is turnout, and this looks like the place the SEIU-ACORN folks turn on the turnout machine. They did it in Minnesota, successfully,” said David Norcross, chair of the Republican National Lawyers Association.

The RNLA will send its own volunteers to MA for Election Day, with plans to monitor polling places to prevent any fraud. The group got a tip that SEIU-sponsored buses would be taking voters to the polls, Norcross said. ***

Good idea for counterforces: The local police unions that spurned Coakley for Brown.

Let’s hope the Eric Holder-approved New Black Panther Party thugs aren’t on those SEIU buses.

Speaking of the New Black Panthers, Main Justice spotlights Malik Shabazz’s latest racist rant.

I’m surprised he hasn’t received an Obama czar appointment yet.

For those of us far away from Massachusetts, I hope that Freepers will post accurate information about the crowd sizes and crowd enthusiasm at the Brown and Coakley events this weekend.

This may tell us something about likely turnout on Tuesday...

Me thinks that some SEIU members didn’t get the memo who they were supposed to be supporting

If it wasn’t illegal there should be a bounty on SEIU THUGS!

President George Bush was out and around and was seen in this shop. Someone asked him if he thought that Obama would be able to help Coakley in Massachusetts in keeping Senator Kenney's seat.

[ ... you can see who is laughing the most about that one... LOL... ]

I hope that FReepers and associates have their camera at the ready, and cell phones armed with Police phone numbers.

Was by Brown HQ this morning getting signs - very tight and energized operation. Hoping they get their poll watcher letters out for Tuesday.

Always a good idea to see that machines in Boston are zeroed out.

“I have seen them referred to as “One eyed lame brained commie purple people beaters.””

I’ve said this before, but I think it bears repeating:

Purple is the new brown.

Here's what the DemonRATs are sending out to raise money...

I just got up to Martha Coakley's campaign HQ to help her win Tuesday's crucial special election. I have to tell you -- this isn't like anything Massachusetts has ever seen.

It's happening right after the holidays, so a lot of people haven't even heard about it. Meanwhile, the same guys behind the Swift Boat ads are taking over the airwaves to distort Martha's record, and the same far-right tea-party crowd that's attacking President Obama is funding her opponent.

The stakes in this race are incredibly high. If we don't hold this seat, a right-wing Republican will hold Sen. Ted Kennedy's old seat until at least 2012 -- and we'll lose a crucial vote in the Senate for health reform and the agenda we fought so hard for last year.

That's why we're going all out in Massachusetts with a massive effort to lock up a Democratic victory. But we can only afford to keep this battle up against the far right through Election Day if folks like you chip in.

Please donate $5 or more to help us make Martha Coakley the next senator from Massachusetts.

Democratic ads are highlighting the key differences between Martha, a long-time public servant and one of the nation's best attorneys general, and her extreme Republican opponent who would walk in lockstep with Mitch McConnell and national GOP power brokers.

And our organizers are engaging volunteers by the thousands to make sure Obama voters make it back to the polls.

But we need your help to keep it going. Please donate $5 or more to the Democratic Party to support our work, including our efforts to elect Martha Coakley:

Let's win this,

Hari

SEIU is one union that NEEDS to be “busted” for the good of this country. They’re as bad if not worse than the Teamsters back when they were Mobbed up.

JUST TWEETED:

Scott Brown is leading in the absentee voting 58-42. 9% of registered voters said they have already cast a ballot.
Real Clear Politics reported:

Coakley loses one-in-five Democrats to Brown, while the Republican state senator has 94 percent of Republicans behind him. Brown has a commanding 58-37 advantage among “unenrolled” voters, mainly independents and those who prefer not to register affiliation with the major parties.

A trend worth noting as well: 9 percent of voters say they’d already cast a ballot through absentee voting. Brown leads Coakley among this group 58-42.

I have received 6 calls from Scott Brown people. Four live and 2 robos. Not one Coakley call has come in.

Very few Coakley signs on people's property south of Boston. Don't know how it is in other places.

. Brown seems to have many workers and plenty of money to fight off the Socialists ( Dems). - Tom

We will soon see if normal, decent people are able to defeat the party of abortion, gay marriage, and “redistribution” of wealth.

There are always police at the polling locations here. The good thing is that this time, unlike in the past, the police unions are on the side of the Republican. So hopefully any shenanigans will be nipped in the bud.
