2011 Boston TEA Party Rally Disrupted by Union Thugs (illegally?) enabled by Boston Police (Parts 1,2,3)
Just as the 2011 Boston TEA Party rally was beginning, a group of Public Sector Union thugs marched in, planted themselves directly in front of the podium and blocked the speakers. They chanted offensive slogans on the 3 megaphones they had brought and continued to do so for the entire 2 hours! The Boston Police, also Public Sector Union members, came in and stood in front of them. The police did not ask the disruptors to leave, even after Michael Graham on the bandstand directly asked them to leave. We had a permit to have the rally at that location and the police enabled these people to disrupt our rally for the entire time. Do you think the Boston Police would allow us to stand in force directly in front of a Union rally speaker and shout offensive slogans and engage in name calling for the ENTIRE RALLY? They did NOT have the permit to assemble at that location on the common, we did. What do you think?
The media is reporting this as if nothing happened. The Police swept the bandstand with a K-9 unit before we began. Looks like the unions (police AND protesters) were trying to start and/or find some trouble for us. They didn't get it. We were successful in avoiding any bad press, they were unsuccessful. Had they been, the media and the Boston Police would have been all over us like flies on you know what. The press, as usual, did NOT report the facts honestly. Treating us like crap as usual.

Sorry, but anymore my attitude is “If they want trouble, give them trouble.” You guys should have been in their face.
Here the AG of Massachusetts enjoys her minion's 'work'
A pay raise and parties followed the assault and battery.
The Police, by their inaction, have shown their allegiance to the union thugs; not to the citizens. They are now nothing more than the SS troops for SEIU.
If police unions side with other government unions against the taxpayers, we'll have a dynamic leading to CW2.
Welcome to the Obama sanctioned campaign 2012!!!! These type of intimidation tactics will be tried at every event coast to coast...by next summer the usuper willdelight in seeing our cities ablaze! It is his aim and purpose as a disruptive agitator!!!! The unions and union controlled “free” press will back him to the end at the detriment of the American people!
Same thing in Madison yesterday, I was there. They were unable to be in front of the podium so they placed themselves inside of the crowd and on the periphery of it. All kinds of noise devices and offensive signs. Madison Police was on the outskirts of the Capitol Square doing nothing.
Expect much more of this. The unions, and the ‘rats generally, feel that their error in 2010 was tactical — that they didn’t come out fast enough and hard enough to “get in their faces”.
pepper spray ... small, concealable, debilitating
Didn’t I recently read an article on here about cops removing Christians praying near a muslim rally in New York?
What does Howie say about it?
We basically broke any Romney sign and punched out anyone who had a problem with this. Couple of Boston Globe guys, and anyone else with a camera got the romperstomper treatment and had their equipment... dealt with. The police were out manned, but with "us". None saw anything of consequence, unless they were working in emergency rooms.
At the Harshbarger rally in Lowell years later the State Police identified us by Union stickers. They put us in a temporary fence structure. Some of the Globe peoples wrote articles about getting slapped around when Romney challenged Kerry.
Not one of the proudest periods of my life. but funny as all get out to see a communist get whipped with his camera by a brother".
Agreed. I’d even go one step further. I’d take it to THEIR rallies and meetings. Take back the streets and the universities from these twits.
Here in Iowa, we have the right to carry. The cops have suddenly become noticeably more respectful. Kind of amazing what an armed populace can do.
If the pigs intervened, make them squeal!
THis is what happens with the feminization of America. You cower like a bunch of little girls.
When dealing with disfunctional people, always have a plan B and never rely on others to fix the problem. Plan B needs to be mostly legal btw. In this case, moving the podium so that the disruptors are in the back or at least in the middle of the crowd, having one person who doesn’t have a criminal record handy to gently remove the horns from them or pour liquids down them. Have a nice old lady sit on their laps (I would volunteer) etc.
The danger of unions being so involved in politics is that they could easily become uhbama's brown shirts. There seems to be no restraint when union members act like thugs.
Wonder if this is the plan.
The forced union dues that are then used to promote democrats ( just note the fact that union paychecks are now tied to minimum wages-if the minimum wage goes up, the union members get a pay increase automatically even tho they may be making twenty seven dollars an hour, etc. That means costs are passed on to consumers, etc., in a never ending cycle and entry level job costs smaller businesses ever more-leading to closure and economic stress.)
Keep filming and posting. Thanks.
You will be able to walk to the next war.
Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.
One must be very cautious when dealing politically with the police. Historically, if it comes to breaking heads (sadism), feathering their own nest (greed), or serving as instruments of democracy (altruism), they will choose the first two.
Add to the unions the federally paid Americorps and Vista organizers.
And that's why they'll keep doing this over and over, and you'll keep backing down again and again to permit them to violate your rights.
It worked like a charm for the Bolsheviks, Nazis, etc etc etc.
Ask Obama's mentor, Hugo Chavez, about the government-union nexus.
I wonder when the 'Rat unions are going to hand out the red shirts and caps?
I hope someone has a permit to carry next time these thugs come around the
Communist Commonwealth of Massachusetts again (Oops! Sorry for the mistake).
Nice thing about Texas is that us Tea Partiers don’t get bothered. Of course every 4th person at these events is (legally) packing, so they’d have to pull some lead out themselves if they tried these stunts...
Someone should have tazed their a$$es when they opened up with the megaphones.
That’s why a lot of them are dying. Citizens are tired of police thuggery.
By and large the police supported the NAZI’s in the early days of the movement. I expect nothing less from our police.
On September 19, 1919, almost all of the Boston Police Department went on strike to get their trade union recognized. In the resulting turmoil, there were riots, looting and a general break-down of organized society still suffering and recovering from WW1 and the "Great Influenza". Governor Coolidge activated the Massachusetts State Militia and famously said to the strikers and organized labor the following famous statement; "There is no right to strike against the public safety, anywhere, anytime."
I find it interesting that this sort of nonsense seems to fly best in states without CCW - WI, MA, NY, likely NJ and CA.
You won’t be seeing this thuggery in the South, or if you do, it won’t be for long.
When has our side ever had "good press" from the communist controlled media?
Why are we still pussy-footing around worrying about "bad press"?
I believe that the 'if' portion of this statement transitioned to 'already done' some time ago. Unfortunately for us all, they have made a terrible choice - for them and for us. I don't doubt that there are many LEOs who are sickened by the travesty that the rule of law has become. But many of those who are perhaps sympathetic to the cause of liberty will have also arrived at their own calculus of survival and self-interest. And it won't include the protection of those who need it most.
How much compliance do we owe to law enforcement agents whom we can no longer trust? That's the difficult question that we will all have to answer. And in that answer lies part of the recipe for CWII.
You are unfortunately correct. The murder and atrocity committed by the SA was given a pass and largely ignored by what was left of Wiemar Republic civilian law enforcement. We now stand on the precipice of a very long fall into chaos and atrocity.
(1) Reduce police departments. Cops cause crime.
(2) Eliminate police unions.
“Looks like the unions (police AND protesters) were trying to start and/or find some trouble for us.”
It’s unnerving to think about what the next generation - indoctrinated to support homosexuality, socialism, abortion, disregard for the Constitution - will bring. Maybe it’s already here.
Make sure our talk show hosts get this. They are usually big boosters of cops. Like Mark Levin, Sean Hannity and Mike Gallagher.
Truth is that where crime is LOW there are less police, and more civil responsibility.
I wonder how the police would like it if they were brought to the hospital and the doctor said, “Sorry. I don’t treat police officers.”
We may ALL have to start carrying, regardless of where we live. Monday is the TEA Party in Wilmington, DE. There are a few “open carryers”, so we’ll see what happens.
“The Police, by their inaction, have shown their allegiance to the union thugs; not to the citizens.”
And this is why the police (& firefighters) should not be permitted to unionize!
If anyone wonders why the FEDS having been giving more and more military equipment to the COPS, wake up, it’s to become Americans Gestapo. The goons are in place and given the chance will act just like the German version. Power corrupts is a truth.
Have you ever read "Sundown at Coffin Rock"?
In a SHTF scenario, police would be well advised to focus on the usual rabble-rousers: Los Angeles rioters, post-Katrina looters, and window-breaking anarchists.
Opening a second front against otherwise patriotic, 2nd Amendment-exercising citizens (many of whom are ex-military and/or experienced hunters) would be ill advised.
My memories of unions go back to days in the early 1930s. My mother who was an immigrant wanted just to work to get ‘bread’ money. The union organizers/thugs kept harassing her to not cross the lines and my mother would come home crying at night. This is not to say the factory owners were without blame in those times. However. the childhood experience shaped my belief that there are people in this Nation/world who are basically like pack animals. They do not on their own want to earn their due, instead they want what they want by ‘packing’ and taking from others. The worst aspect of this is that the ordinary persons in the pack/union deliver themselves to the alfa person who gets control of the pack/union most often by thug intimidation. As I see what goes today the scenario plays out in all ‘public’ unions including cops,firemen, etc. Unions of these ‘public’ servants as operated today should be under public control as set by public vote not officials who like the pack animals sell themselves to unions.
Union rank-and-file are now dem brownshirt rank-and-file.
