SEIU Goons Lied – Justice Died… Witness to Gladney Beating Speaks Out After Controversial Verdict
Gateway Pundit ^ | Wednesday, July 13, 2011, 5:10 AM | Jim Hoft

Posted on 07/13/2011 1:03:53 PM PDT by Da Bilge Troll

Pastor Harris Himes sent me this letter following the shocking verdict in the Gladney beatdown case. Pastor Himes and his wife Sandra witnessed the local SEIU thugs attack Kenneth Gladney outside a Russ Carnahan town hall event in 2009. They were there when the SEIU beat an innocent black man. Harris was obviously upset with the verdict yesterday.

After a health care town hall meeting in August 2009 St. Louis native Kenneth Gladney was beaten, kicked and called racist names by Rep. Russ Carnahan’s SEIU supporters. Gladney spent the night in the hospital after the beating.

Yesterday the two SEIU goons who beat Gladney were found not guilty of any wrongdoing.

Pastor Himes was one of three impartial witnesses to the crime. The prosecution did not call him to testify in the trial. Yesterday the goons won.

Here’s his reaction–

My wife, Sandra, and I attended St. Louis Congressman Carnahan’s panel on aging on August 6, 2009. The tactic was clear. They let in about two hundred of us but had about 120 seats set aside, marked “RSVP,” and these were for Carnahan supporters. These people were let in by a side door for the “handicapped.” Many had purple tea shirts with “Organizing for America” in white letters on the back and large “SEIU,” smaller “Service Employees International Union” on the front. Sandra and I managed to get in.

A civil suit might be his only recourse.

I can see the trial was stacked against the victim, but the truth of the matter is that the trial was also stacked against the American people. This was beyond a travesty of justice, it is treason.

At this point, anyone wearing a SIEU T-Shirt is a traitor to the Country. Man may mock God, but God's justice is inevitable. SIEU will get its day in court, one member at a time, before an almighty Judge. And fear will rule the day, because He is Just.

Reserved seating for supporters show clear Court collusion with the marxists. The sitting judge should be fired and the court system cleaned out with roto rooter.

Gladney, a cancer survivor, was selected by the Carnahan supporters for the beatdown because he was handing out “Don’t Tread On Me” flags and because he was black.

Is HuffPo Threatening Political Pressure in Gladney Case on Behalf of SEIU?

by Dana Loesch

We’ve already noted how two HuffPo reporters ran defense for SEIU: First there was Erica Payne, HuffPo blogger, lover of all things Media Matters, who appeared on Fox News to try to shift blame of SEIU antics onto the tea party.

We’ve also read how HuffPo blogger Arthur Delaney was embedded with SEIU to cover their home invasion of Bank of America employee Greg Baer which terrified Baer’s young son who hid in the bathroom (we’re still waiting for the Carnahan Coffin-Gate drama queens to repeat their hysterics over this but so far, nothing); Delaney became the first to parrot SEIU’s baseless accusation of “conflict of interest” at Fortune columnist Nina Easton after she published her firsthand account, as Baer’s neighbor, of the same protest. Monday we exposed Huffington Post’s own conflict of interest when we discovered that SEIU had paid the site $15,000 categorized as “political activities and lobbying.”

See proof at link...

http://biggovernment.com/tag/elston-mccowan/

Is this what SEIU money is buying? Two HuffPo bloggers running their media defense? Of course, this could be a routine advertising expense. But, Big Government has learned that the Huffington Post has inserted themselves into SEIU’s most notorious violent incident: the Kenneth Gladney beating of last August.

Caught on Tape: Racist NAACP Leader Says ‘Kenneth Gladney Not Black Enough,’ an ‘Uncle Tom’

by Jim Hoft

On May 5th, 2010 The Missouri NAACP hosted a press conference and rally on behalf of Perry Molens and Elston McCowan, demanding the county prosecutor drop assault charges stemming from an attack outside Russ Carnahan’s townhall in South St. Louis County on Health Care last August.

Molens and McCowan were arrested after the staged Carnahan event in August after they beat, kicked and stomped on black vendor Kenneth Gladney. The two Russ Carnahan supporters and SEIU members also called Kenneth the n-word as they bashed him into the cement.

Socialist Appeal

Elston K. McCowan, who is an organizer for Service Employees International Union, Baptist minister, and former Green Party candidate for mayor

Elston McCowan of the Green Party of St. Louis

A long time SEIU member and union organizer, Elston McCowan has pledged to be an “activist candidate and an activist Mayor,” and is running on the Green Party ticket.

calling for, among other things: full employment, quality housing, universal health care, for the federal government to pay its fair share to bailout the nation’s beleaguered state and municipal budgets and to fund our public schools and universities, health, public transportation, infrastructure and other services.

We in the Workers International League believe that this campaign offers workers and youth, both Black and White, the best option in the upcoming St. Louis city elections. We are in favor of building a mass party of labor, based on the unions, armed with a program of socialist demands that truly addresses the interests of the working class majority of American society.

We believe working people and youth should vote for McCowan to say:

• “Yes!” to Full Employment, quality union jobs and benefits for all at a living wage.

•“Yes!” to Quality Housing for All, with rents fixed at no more than 10 percent of income.

•“Yes!” to Free, Quality Education for All, fully fund our schools and universities: no to privatization, vouchers and school closings.

•“Yes!” to Free, Quality health care for all, for a socialized national health care system.

•“No!” to big-business bailouts at public expense: make the rich pay for their crisis!

St. Louis, Missouri, August 15, 2009 — It is laughable how the left-wing media is so quick to paint Kenneth Gladney as a liar. However, Gladney’s account of the events that transpired on August 8, 2009 have never changed because everything he has said is the truth. The truth, on the other hand, is not something that comes so readily to SEIU thug and attacker of liberty, the wannabe politician, “Reverend” Elston McCowan. Yes, the same Elston McCowan who accused St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay of blowing up his van during McCowan’s unsuccessful bid for mayor earlier this year.

Initially, McCowan told the St. Louis Post-Disptach that he, in fact, was attacked by Gladney:

But Elston McCowan, an SEIU staffer, said Gladney was actually an instigator. McCowan accused Gladney of attacking him as he walked to his car. McCowan said he suffered a dislocated shoulder.

“Out of nowhere, the guy just assaults me,” said McCowan, 47, of St. Louis.

(Source: “Two sides blame each other in fracas at forum”, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, August 8, 2009, by Patrick M. O’Connell.)

Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive. Just a little over a week later, McCowan’s anti-American buddies at the International Journal of Socialist Renewal are now reporting the following:

Walking outside, McCowan saw Gladney selling buttons of Obama in blackface and Obama smoking weed. Feeling insulted, McCowan asked why a black man would be hawking material denigrating the first black president as he pointed to one of the buttons.

“When I pointed at the button, Gladney slapped my hand. So I told him not to hit me and pointed at it again and repeated my question. He smacked my hand even harder, hit me several times and pushed me down. As I went down, I grabbed him by reflex to break my fall. I hit my shoulder and something popped. I lost consciousness for a moment but soon realised that Gladney continued to hit me.”

(Source: “United States: Industry-backed opponents of healthcare reform react with racism, violence”,
LINKS International Journal of Socialist Renewal, August 14, 2009, by Don Fitz.)

So which story is it, Mr. McCowan? Were you merely walking to your car and attacked out of “nowhere” as you first stated, or did you stop and antagonize Gladney, as Gladney has stated all along? Now you conveniently add that Gladney was selling racist merchandise. Hmmmm… a black man selling merchandise with President Obama in blackface? Last time we checked, President Obama is black. Was this why you called Kenneth the “N” word then punched him in the face? Or was it, as Gladney has stated on the record, that he was only selling pro-Tea Party and “Don’t Tread on Me” buttons? It seems that McCowan is spinning a new yarn to assuage his own guilt for calling Gladney the “N” word by trying to paint Gladney as a racist. Nice try, Mr. McCowan.

If you hadn’t noticed, the justice system has been dying for a while now.

The courts are dominated by leftists who have only ideology in mind. Outcomes are determined by them based on what they want you to see, the lessons the sheeple must learn.

It is corrupt.

Subj: Re: We Need a Defense Committee for MCCowan/attacked by Teaparty Thugs

Hi All,

I think a truth committee is needed as well as legal and medical funds. To-date my workman’s comp has been denied, which means that I have to pay co-pays for my Dr.’s visits as well as deductibles. Currently SEIU Local 2000 is paying for my legal fees in defending myself and any others charged with assault associated with the Union. I hope that if there is a Civil Suite against me, they will pay those legal fees as well, but there aren’t any guarantees at this juncture.

Thanks,

Elston

You are right, seats were reserved at the townhall meeting for the Carnahan cronies.

When in the course of human events the citizens of a nation become aware that Justice and Redress are not forth coming from their government officials, it becomes necessary that the citizens take up the responsibility of correcting the malfeasance of those officials.

Can this correction be accomplished short of simply hanging the officials?

Elston McCowan, a dynamic trade-union leader with deep roots in the Black community, will be running as an independent candidate for mayor of St. Louis in the April 2009 general city elections.

McCowan is the pastor of a church in the Walnut Park area of North St. Louis and an active leader of the public sector workers represented by SEIU Local 2000.

Local 2000 is one of the SEIU locals threatened with a trusteeship takeover by the SEIU national leadership of Andy Stern. There is widespread discontent among the union’s rank and file, especially among school custodians, over the poor leadership of the national union as janitorial and food services have been privatized in the St. Louis public schools.

McCowan is also known for his support for Reparations for Slavery.

Other Obama supporters have threatened critics with criminal prosecution. In September, St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch and St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce warned citizens that they would bring criminal libel prosecutions against anyone who made statements against Obama that were “false.” I had been under the impression that the Alien and Sedition Acts had gone out of existence in 1801-02. Not so, apparently, in metropolitan St. Louis. Similarly, the Obama campaign called for a criminal investigation of the American Issues Project when it ran ads highlighting Obama’s ties to Ayers.

The courts are dominated by leftists who have only ideology in mind. Outcomes are determined by them based on what they want you to see, the lessons the sheeple must learn.

That is evident in Judge Robertson's case ( the Twitter Judge in Hollister vs. Soetoro ). His background :

From 1969 to 1972, Judge Robertson served with the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, as chief counsel of the Committee's litigation offices in Jackson, Mississippi, and as director in Washington, D.C. Judge Robertson then returned to private practice with Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering, where he practiced until his appointment to the federal bench. While in private practice, he served as president of the District of Columbia Bar, co-chair of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, and president of Southern Africa Legal Services and Legal Education Project, Inc. Also, Obama served on the board of the Chicago branch of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. Here is an excerpt from an article on what the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law does :

Uses the courts to bypass the electorate and its officials in order to gain what it perceives as desirable and just outcomes. Today LCCR uses the courts to mandate race-based affirmative action preferences in business and academia. Its major objective is to use the skills and resources of the bar to obtain equal opportunity for minorities by addressing factors that contribute to racial justice and economic opportunity.Given our nations history of racial discrimination, de jure segregation, and the de facto inequities that persist, LCCR elaborates, the Lawyers Committees primary focus is to represent the interest of African Americans in particular, other racial and ethnic minorities, and other victims of discrimination, where doing so can help to secure justice for all racial and ethnic minorities.

Good post. Anyone who doesn’t see that the legal system is as infected as any other branch is not paying attention.

I believe that jurys are as infected and swayed as well as the bench.

Desired outcomes per ideology.

Agreed. If people were going to rise up in revolt, they’d have done it by now. Instead they just grumble and shuffle along like slaves.

“I had been under the impression that the Alien and Sedition Acts had gone out of existence in 1801-02.”

The main stream press was already floating accusations of “sedition” at Obama critics a couple of years ago.

Man may mock God, but God’s justice is inevitable. SIEU will get its day in court, one member at a time, before an almighty Judge. And fear will rule the day, because He is Just.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
AMEN to that.
