I guess Big Sis was right. Home grown terrorism is on the rise. Have the union declared a terrorist organization.

I’ve seen other threads about this story but missed some of the details presented here.

I think I get it now. Nobody was arrested today. They couldn’t be. Not enough cops. But as with other riots in other places in the country and the world, “known participants” will get a knock on the door at a time of law enforcement’s choosing. And they will do it with reversed odds.

LEO’s are Union Brothers and Sisters....this is the way of the future. Only Christian, Independent (non-Union), White, Heterosexuals will be prosecuted for crimes.

To be fair about this, longshoreman have alway been a violent group for over a hundred years, this isn’t anything new.They seem to always get their way and the cops are scared of them. And y’all thought the Hell’s Angels was a bad ass gang.Read up on some history about longshoreman and gangs, BTW, thats what they are called when they work a ship.

This is their civility.

Kind of reminds me of a certain group of people who hate another group of people so much that they strap bombs onto their children, fire rockets daily, and commit other acts of aggressive war, who then cry victim when the other group dares to defend itself.
Kind of reminds me of that.

...500 or more Longshoremen broke down gates about 4:30 a.m. and smashed windows

What? No national guard in Washington? Or perhaps the governer lacks the cajones to call them out? Round 2 might not be so easy for the thugs.

Government bureaucrats and the cops belong to unions and so do these longshoremen, but I don’t see the connection.

It’s not just longshoremen. Read about coal miner unions and violence back in the day. Many unions are nothing more than criminal gangs.

Wasington’s guv is a demonrat, she probably ordered the union thugs to go after this port and shipment.

It appears that Obama is intent reviving the FDR administration, the union behavior is the same as the beginning of the New Deal as is the disregard of the Constitution and the law.

Take a look at the life of Harry Bridges. He ran the Longshoremen in San Francisco through a bloody period and he was an Australian.

Watch the Animal Farm movie made in 1954, you’ll get the idea what they are from and plan to do.

Just the kind of people I want working at my business. Employees who will damage and hurt the business. These are the last people anyone should have to hire.

Unions prosper in states where lawful citizens are not allowed to carry. In those states where they do, my opinion is that they should be shot on sight if they act in a threatening manner. That’s what throw-downs are for.

China isn’t going to accept brigandry of their shipments.

Onama will be passing their word, which is law, along. Should be interesting.

Watch the movie with Viggo Mortensen called ( THE ROAD ) and it will give you a good idea what we will face in a total economic collapse or war, or race war.

Make sure your in a safe place with plenty of food, water, ammo.

Someone posted on another thread today a law stating that crimes like this can’t be prosecuted if the actions further legitimate goals of the union. I think it only pertained to coercion charges I am not sure though.

They’re testing the waters to see how far they can push.

When a couple of them get their asses shot up during the course of their domestic terrorism, this crap will stop real quick.

"One sergeant was threatened with baseball bats and retreated, Duscha said. “One officer with hundreds of Longshoremen? He used the better part of discretion.”

The better part of excretion would be more like it...

Chicago, yes. Longview, no. Too small to hide.

This is an act of terrorism, plain and simple. That no one got killed or hospitalized is moot, this is illegal action taken for the express purpose of meeting a political end. It is criminal as well.

I guess the thin blue line union wasn't going to cross the picket line.

If the police won't handle the rioters, that will eventually leave it up to the rest of the people, unless the people like being terrorized.

What does “Too small to hide.” have to do with anything?

Union members protect other union members.
It doesn’t matter the size of the city.

Actually, it does. Especially when your small town story makes national news - and there were so many. They cannot do nothing. It will stink too bad for them to keep their jobs.

If they made “On the Waterfront” today, union thugs would beat up the folks who went to see the movie.

“...who then cry victim when the other group dares to defend itself.”

It the police had done anything, they would have been
labeled and libeled as nazis.

Just saying.
