How long before the leftists start trying to commit bodily harm on a large scale? Days or hours?

Republicans should not be provoking these peaceful souls in such a manner. They should move their offices to a place that is less offensive to the Union.

Were they invited?

Have they been asked to leave?

I was going to put it in ‘breaking’ but 9 times out of 10, anything I put in ‘breaking’ either gets removed from ‘breaking’ or temporarily gets removed, only to be put back into ‘breaking’ later in the day.

:O)

They have some nerve to breach the GOP offices, when their own party members are still OUT OF STATE and using their state-issued credit cards to charge days and days and days of hotel stays, food, gas, etc.

They heard about campus uprisings, watched news footage of the ‘68 Democratic Convention, possibly participated in them, and saw endless movies romanticizing the radical 60s. They want to be part of the scene. You know, the happening, man.

As a private organization I would think they have the right to call the police and have them removed. And since the police unions are exempt from the legislation being considered then they should have no sympathy for the trespassers.

Breaking news? Things will be “broken” but the Lame Stream Media will report, IF they report on this at all, that the GOP’ers had it coming.

You would be surprised how many do. I've seen them interviewed on CNN/MSNBC. More firefighters than police officers, but still.

You get any gathering of Leftwingtards that lasts more than a couple of days you always end up with a bunch of drugged out lunatics.

This crowd is overdue for some serious stupidity.

The problem is republicans are stiring up these peaceful, gentle protesters in to coming in their offices. The Republicans are so unthoughtful, they need to move their offices to another state, like Russia or Mexico.

Luke 14
7 When he noticed how the guests picked the places of honor at the table, he told them this parable:

8 “When someone invites you to a wedding feast, do not take the place of honor, for a person more distinguished than you may have been invited. 9 If so, the host who invited both of you will come and say to you, ‘Give this person your seat.’ Then, humiliated, you will have to take the least important place. 10 But when you are invited, take the lowest place, so that when your host comes, he will say to you, ‘Friend, move up to a better place.’ Then you will be honored in the presence of all the other guests. 11 For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

Frankly, it looks to me like they need to get the national guard out to remove people from the capital building interior, and protect various other locations.

The union people have effectively shut down the Wisconsin government. Since when do we tolerate that type of activity?

If Conservatives marched on Washington, D. C. and did half what these folks in Wisconsin have done, they’d be rotting in jail by now.

This mob seems to push to see how far decent people will let them.


This describes the left in general. They’ve pushed and pushed and pushed, and we’ve kept stepping back to prevent a confrontation. Time for that confrontation to happen, on many levels.

The left expects the government to use force against their political/ideological opponents.
In fact, this is THE DREAM of the left,
to see the state’s power used to punish and killed those who oppose them.

Thanks for the ping,

Watching closely, this has become a criminal enterprise. If the country was not repulsed by Unions before, they certainly will before this is all over.

Didn’t that union bath turd say it was going to get a little bloody. We got thugs and trash in the white house and the unions have carte blanche.

I noticed that while attending a rally in support of the students at Tienanmen Sq in SF years back. The moonbats love a rally & immediately set to appropriating every one they encounter.

“saw endless movies romanticizing the radical 60s. They want to be part of the scene.”

This is what happens when you elect a President who was mentored by Domestic Terrorist Bill Ayers. Another pointless and futile act that only fritters away what little credibility they had in the eyes of the average voter.

He might have been a bit too explicit,
but it is time to stand up to the leftist thugs, in general as well as in this specific instance.

Also, just for future reference, I suggest you not quote offensive stuff in a post. That way when the mods deal with it it’ll be gone and not repeated anywhere else.

No mistake about, Obama loves this chaos. The left-wingers will drag this out until November 2011 if possible. The media’s job is to get the public to blame it on the Tea Party and Republicans. The media’s job is the convince the public that the unions, anti-GOP protesters, Democrats, and Obama are on their side standing up to evil Republicans.

(It won’t work.)

It’s a tweet on Twitter from a guy from the institute (he’s on FNC regularly) reporting on the protests.

Perfect. So, let the police union members refuse to do their duty. Now the public REALLY sees what unions do to public service. Becomes a question of where loyalties really lie.
