Union Thugs Bully Citizens Working to Recall AWOL Wisconsin Democratic Senators (video)
Breitbart.tv ^ | March 16, 2011 | Breitbart.tv

Posted on 03/17/2011 6:30:36 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

Eyewitness account: 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 (sic) destroyed these recall petitions, but stated to us that there was nothing they could do about it. The female protestor (sic), 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.

WH endorsed bullying - not a word is said against it, nor arrests/prosecutions made. A democrat strategy - talking out of both sides of their mouth.

Idioms - talking out of both sides of mouth

….to say different things to different people about the same subject How can we trust him when we know he talks out of both sides of his mouth?

I thought it was lawful to circulate petitions.

If this is right, and the police stood by and said they could do nothing, then something is very wrong. Those actions were one step away from inciting violence. What in the heck. Is this story accurate? INCREDIBLE.

Did you think the right to petition the government overrides their union membership??

I agree, they are pushing and pushing, apparently in the belief that they can intimidate the majority into submission. I have no problem pushing back, just as hard as necessary to eradicate these vermin. And the police who stand by are no better than the agitators who ripped up these petitions.

You got that. It is the right of the people to petition the government for the redress of grievances. Those petitions should have been quietly observed, and at the first sign of destruction, the protection of those documents should have begun.

Police union blackmail. How far away is the time when "preferred" businesses get faster response time from the police? Or the "wrong thinking" businesses get the above treatment? Ditto for fire protection.

The police just sent a message. We got it, loud and clear. They have chosen sides.

It doesn’ when they are the ones with the badges and guns.

Only when one is a good slave will the police protect protect them.

I hope these people learned a few things from this:

* Only leave one petition sheet out at a time. Protect the completed ones quite carefully; do not leave them where a passer-by can get to them
* Physically restrain anyone who destroys a petition and find a way to get them arrested if the local goon squad won't do the job (haul them down to the cop shop, call the media, etc.). I believe that destroying petitions is a fairly serious crime.
* These union thugs (cops included) are willing to remove your right to peaceably change the system. What options does that leave you?

I wonder at what point do people start to realize we have lost our liberty because we refuse to defend ourselves.

Well at least we know that just like in NAZI Germany the police sided with the socialists.

Won’t be long now I think.

Sometimes one must exercise his God given right to defend himself.

As a once wise man said, “Rebellion to tyranny is obedience to God.”

What are you surprised?

Police are also union. They're going to have to be busted too.

Yes - the Ruling Class (government workers in this case) are becoming a new aristocracy.

I'm sure the cops would happily break heads if we refused to pay our taxes (and by extension, their salaries).

- Always have several video cameras on hand.

- Set up petition drives on private property if possible, prosecute trespassers.

I wasn't referring to the police unions. I was referring to all the unions. They're pretty much all in bed with the Obamination and he's making use of them. Their thug tactics make them perfect Brownshirts. That's what I see ahead.

Kenosha County WISCONSIN lures Illinois company - and up to 105 jobs

By Tom Daykin of the Journal Sentinel

March 17, 2011

A company moving from northern Illinois to Kenosha County was attracted by the opportunity to operate in a more efficient building and by Wisconsin’s improved business climate, a company executive says.

“Guarantee that to push back would not turn out well for you.”

The union cops did a splendid job in stopping gangs armed with rocks and bottles during the LA riots by hopping in their cars and driving home.

The armed Korean shopkeepers on the rooftops in LA did more to protect property than the chicken union cops.

I think in this matter, I’ll trust the professionals, who knew that you win by being a bigger badass than your opponent. You are part of the problem with your measured responses and namby-pamby bring-a-knife-to-a-gunfight mentality. Often one must fight fire with fire, and its high time we fought back.
