So, when will the brown-shirted thugs from the Obozo SEIU membership begin the beat down of these Scott Brown supporters?
Hell has frozen over. Union members are far more conservative though (generally) than their leadership which far too often won’t or doesn’t represent their values. The famous Reagan Democrats were in many ways, union types. Perhaps some of them are beginning to wake up.
“Union Brothers and Sisters: Your Leadership Doesnt Get It You Deserve Better
I know that ordinary union members dont want to hurt their fellow Americans, just as ordinary Nebraskans didnt want to stick it to the rest of the country with a sweetheart deal on Medicaid subsidies. I urge union members to make their voices heard. Please, call your leadership dont put up with these special-interest politics tell them to fight for all Americans who want common sense health care reform, not this flawed boondoggle.
Welcome, United States Senator Brown!
Uh oh. I sure hope they have protection.
Or will the real SEIU thugs please stand up!
There’s definately something very strange about this.
This is obviously some kind of republican dirty tricks!
Wait till Glenn Beck get this SEIU picture.
That is too funny. I heard the union that her husband belonged endorsed Brown.
SEIU is making waves in MA with some supporting Brown.
The Sons of Liberty dressed-up as Indians when they held the Boston Tea Party. How cool is that! My respect and compliments to all involved!!!!
unions are prejudice
I agree. I don’t doubt that many rank-and-file SEIU members will vote for Brown. But somethng does not seem right for them to be wearing their purple shirts at this rally. I hope I am wrong but this smells like a big set up to me.
I worked for unions for over 25 years. I have always been a conservative. I worked as hard, often times harder, then the die-hard union suckups, who were there for what the union could do for them without putting forth the effort.
is this real?
Politicians should not be allowed to accept any money from 1)unions (dues are for benefit of members) 2)publically traded companies (shareholders should get profits from their investments)
Got a letter from my union, American Postal Workers, saying that while my vote was my choice they felt Coakley would be best.
I crumpled it up and threw it away.
They are sailing under a false flag. They are well aware of Glenn Beck’s attacks on SEIU and they are trying to tie Brown with SEIU.
Sarah supports union workers, as did Reagan. They just don’t support the leftist leadership.
These people are risking quite a bit, however, appearing in public with SEIU signs and no masks. A lot of union workers go into the booth and vote for conservatives like Reagan, who are not elitists. But they don’t necessarily tell their bosses how they voted.
Great photos, however!
Some unions are actively endorsing Brown
State Police Association of Massachusetts
Cambridge Police Officers Association
This despite Coakley being the top law enforcement official in the Commonwealth, and Coakley’s husband being a retired
Cambridge cop. 0bama probably feels that “the Cambridge police acted...stupidly” with their endorsement of Scott.
I think there are a lot more conservative in the unions than the union officials would care to make public.
No THAT is modern day bravery!
That makes sense to me!
As I said, these people in purple would not be doing this without the approval of the union leadership and they are supporting Cloakly.
S.E.I.U. local 509.........
Over 11,000 members.
Local homeless people wearing the shirts. Has to be that way. lol... let the spinners spin
“trying to tie Brown with SEIU”
Yeah, kinda my first thought too, but I’m still scratching my head over this one......C
How could you do that! Not listen to your Union thugs!
My daughter and son are teachers and they say all the teachers they work with are voting for Brown. That says a lot to me.
This makes my day!
Wow! Give them all the credit in the world for their courage to publicly standing up against their Union.
That’s the best thing I’ve seen all day!
I love Sarah Palin. She is definitely “one of us” regular everyday Americans, but with and extra dose of special.
Stick a fork in’er!
I been UAW for over 20yrs and cant bring myself to read the Solidarity magazine any longer. It goes from my mailbox straight into the trash can. The half truths they print in that thing is incredible and ALL the letters are pro Obama.
I’m UAW but don’t work at the any of car plants. I don’t make near what them people make. I work in a plating plant and we have given up our pension and more then once we let a pay raise slide to help out our company.
Our Christmas bonus was a $25 gift card for Walmart and a thank you letter from the owner for our sacrifices to keep the company alive.
Not all union members are liberal democrats.
HELP SCOTT DEFEAT THE OBAMA SOCK PUPPET!!
(stole this from another FReeper, but bears repeating)

Live in or near MA? Volunteers still needed at many regional offices. If you can help, please email Laura@brownforussenate.com and she will tell you how.
If you live in Massachusetts, become an election judge. In Boston they pay $135-$185 and they NEED Republican monitors.
Needed; military and retired law enforcement VFW and police organizations etc to monitor polls- prevent the voter fraud theyre plotting right now. Video tape everything; document everything; prosecute the perpetrators. http://www.cityofboston.gov/news/default.aspx?id=3599
Shoulda sent it back RETURN TO SENDER - make ‘em work twice as hard...
Exactly, I don’t think deep down, the average Union member, has much in common with what his Union leadership pushes for. The problem is they don’t realize necessarily how negative their actions area.
If this doesn’t strike icy terror into the hearts of Coakley’s staff, nothing will.
