Wisconsin Business Bullied by Unions Forced to Cancel Tea Party Rally Location
Campaign Trail Report ^ | 8/7/11 | Eric Odom

Posted on 08/07/2011 10:55:18 AM PDT by Nachum

Tens of millions of dollars flowing into Wisconsin on behalf of the union hacks pushing recalls is only part of the assault on the will of the voters. There is also now a campaign of bully tactics underway and tea party organizers are being forced to quickly move rally locations.

The Tea Party Express is hosting a plethora of tea party rallies across Wisconsin in an effort to push back against the unions driving the recalls. While on the road to Kenosha, WI, we learned the venue was no longer willing to host the Tea Party rally due to threats and constant bullying.

The Birchwood Grill was originally the location for the rally. Grill owners had to cancel the use of their location just hours before the event as a result of the union coordinated bullying and intimidation.

The new location for the Kenosha rally is Lincoln Park. The rally kicks off at 2:30 PM on Saturday, August 6.

As a reminder… bullying and intimidation is a common tactic of the left (as seen in video below). Where is Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden on this one?

It sounds as though the knuckledragging union thugs are threatening decent Americans who do not want to see their country destroyed. This is going to get ugly. Commie pigs like the union thugs have got to go.

The thugs in the motorcycle gang continue their rampage. The townspeople are frightened. Some are standing up. They are the ones who get a beat down at the state fair. Lets hope for a good outcome on Tuesday.

My experience with union members is that they are bullies in groups and chickens individually.

Take out one, and the rest scatter pretty quick.

The FBI should get involved with things like that.

Yes, why is the bullying being ignored? Can’t the business owner go to the police...maybe not.

It is sad that in our country we must start thinking of armed conflict. However, Tea Party people have the right to meet and must defend that right by force if necessary.

Push back = surrender. Guess the tea party has matured enough to employ double speak.

An easy and immediate remedy for situations like this could involve smaller dispersed, but coordinated meetings using any of the many social media mechanisms for communication. Video and teleconferencing are also options where meetings could be held privately but networked into the larger group.

The only thing that will save this country is a Civil War. The Marxists will not go away. They will keep up the thug tactics, stealing elections, and antagonizing anyone who doesn’t go along with their agenda.

The only thing to put an end to this is war. Freedom loving tea party patriots against the the Marxist unions, teachers, professors and 0bama youth.

How in the world can the people of Wisconsin vote for thugs like that?

First the legislators stalled the government by running to another state. Their capitol was trashed by a bunch of a malicious vandals. The government was thwarted by frivolous lawsuits. A state supreme court judge accused another of choking her. Their allies in the media have dropped all semblance of professional journalism and are shamelessly smearing the opposition.

The Left has used dirty intimidation tactics the whole time to an extent we have not seen since the sixties.

Is there any doubt that they will try to cheat during the election and will throw it into the courts if they lose?

Are these the kind of people we want running our government?

If the people of Wisconsin vote in favor of this ugliness, they will cripple any hope of reform in their state for a long, long time.

That is crazy talk. That kind of talk makes us as bad as the thugs on The Left. Maybe worse. If we act like that, we will lose the sympathy of the American people.

The Tea Party is about upholding the constitution. We will avoid violence and change the government in peaceful ways.

” I will not buy American as long as the UAW makes cars.

I thought that might be a good idea - boycott all union-made products.

Then on second thought (often a much better thought) I realized that’s just what the unions-backed-by-Communists want. To drive all production overseas and break America. It would just play into their hands.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Sorry, Bob. You avoid the reason why we have the Second Amendmemt. Sometimes, things are just too fargone to try to ‘convince’ with words the enemy and their idiot followers. Our American Revolution would have failed if we were not willing to employ force to defend our liberty. The union thugs are employing the threat of violence to prevent us the right to peaceful assembly. We must be ready and willing to unleash a spirited and righteous force against those who would dare bring violence against us.

And the Army. Obama is the commander in chief of the Army, too, and they will kill you and me if he orders them to.

I disagree. Too many in the Army would revolt if Obama gave such an order, and Obama knows it. That is why he wants to dismantle our military culture and drive out the good Americans who tend to volunteer. He invites gays and muslims in. To hedge his bets, he also is trying to start his own civilian army.

“The Tea Party is about upholding the constitution.”

Totally agree.

“We will avoid violence and change the government in peaceful.”

But what do we do when the violent acts are being comitted against us? Stand, take it and roll over? The left is getting more bold and violent by the day. We have to make a stand. I’m not talking about going out and comitting henious acts. But we have to fight fire with fire.

“If we act like that, we will lose the sympathy of the American people.”

We already have lost sympathy with American people. The countless media hits on us leave us with a below 30% favorable and and above 40% unfavorable. Now we are being blamed for the S and P downgrade!

I hate to be chicken little, but what we are doing now is starting to not work. We are up against unlimited funds from unions, special interest groups, and large numbers of roving hoards from all walks of life. We have to get more bold and fight the fight that is taken to us.

Blacks beat white people at fair, white people go to hospital.

I've heard all the talk and braggadocio, as all as I see is communists, union thugs, racist thugs etc, continuously threatening and committing violence against whites, especially conservative whites. There is no push back. It's a one sided battle.

The escalation of this are happening more and more. Obama wants this to explode, I have been saying it since he took office. Once some tea party or conservative fights back and some shooting starts, watch for the declaration of Martial Law. This is the ultimate goal. Will the military go with it? We shall see. It is going to happen around next June Or July.

Think again, my friend.

Having been in the army myself, I honestly don't care what some egghead has to say in his dissertation on the subject. I have no doubt that someone like Obama would try to use the military domestically. I also recognize that a number of military men would follow such orders. However, unless things have changed so drastically as to be unrecognizable since I was in, there are far too many guys who would rebel against such orders, especially if some POS like Obama gave the order.
