Union Thugs Destroy Recall Petitions
Youtube ^ | 3-11-11 | Norwispatriot

Posted on 03/16/2011 8:56:16 AM PDT by bigbob

This video was shot minutes after a union advocate destroyed several petitions at a recall Jim Holperin Rally in Merill, WI. The event was moved to the court house grounds because the private location originally slated to host the event was threatened with arson. It should be noted that police were present when the protestor destroyed these recall petitions, but stated to us that there was nothing they could do about it. The female protestor, who had a young child with her, approached the recall table pretending to be interested in signing the petition, then proceeded to write F--- You! She then ripped up other completed petitions before being stopped. Her actions were met with great approval from the rest of the crowd, who took up the chant heard in the video.

Is this what democracy looks like? (Sure makes me happy we don't have one!)

A local newspaper story that can't be linked on FR due to copyright complaints stated that the police were looking at news video to try to identify the woman, and determine whether any laws had been broken. I guess "disturbing the peace" or "destruction of personal property" must be pretty tough to figure out...

These are techniques from the 1930s. Unions are obsolete in the 21st century.

Here is the problem. Dem protect their petition drive and will have intact petitions for submission. GOP will have nothing at deadline time. Mob rule just fire their second round across the bow and our side has not returned the shot.

Anyone who trusts the police to support democracy is a fool. Police are inherantly totalitarian, and the history of nations is replete with examples of police moving from the center, or the right, to the exteme left without missing a beat.

Day by day, we are devolving into a Road Warrior world. Civilization, if not dead, is on life support. Sooner or later, there will be a confrontation that is bound to end in bloodshed. One side cannot continually preach violence, hate and destruction without it being met in kind.

Not a pretty picture, but true.

How about Child abuse. She obviously brought the baby as a human shield to keep the Cops at bay(as if that was needed.

Maybe it is time to go after Police Chiefs that are encouraging officers to NOT do their duty.

Maybe people should look at the video to identify the negligent police and publicize who they are.

No kidding.

WSJ -JAMES TARANTO
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704893604576200522251828538.html

Last week, as the Wisconsin stalemate was coming to an end, we worried about the potential threat that unionized policemen, in “solidarity” with other unionized government employees, might tolerate or even participate in lawless behavior in order to undermine the workings of republican governance and preserve union privileges. ..............In [their] letter to Wisconsin businessmen... we see why so-called collective bargaining is particularly corrupting to the police. Although the letter explicitly threatens only an economic boycott, when it is written on behalf of the police—of those on whom all citizens depend to protect their safety—it invariably raises the prospect of another kind of boycott. Can a businessman who declines this heavy-handed “request” be confident that the police will do their job if he is the victim of a crime—particularly if the crime itself is in retaliation for his refusal to support “the dedicated public employees who serve our communities”? Sykes sums up the letter this way: “That’s a nice business you got there. Pity if anything were to happen to it if, say, you didn’t toe the line and denounce Governor Walker like we’re asking nice-like.” He’s right. “Organized” law enforcement bears a disturbing resemblance to organized crime. ..” [End excerpt]

So ya gonna tell me that the country isn't gone to the commies? Well for now, until the Moooslums take it over as those wonderful passive Christians sit reading their Bible waiting for the end time.
