Union Chief Leo Gerard: 'Resistance Movement' Needed to Seize Bridges, Banks in Case OWS Fails
http://newsbusters.org/blogs/jack-coleman/2011/11/02/union-chief-leo-gerard-resistance-movement-needed-seize-bridges-banks- ^

Posted on 11/02/2011 6:30:12 PM PDT by chessplayer

United Steelworkers international president Leo Gerard has a message to the flea party whiny-whiners still camping out instead of sleeping in their parents' basements -- playtime is over.

Just in case the Occupy movement fails -- in other words, when it fails -- Gerard is urging union members to fill that gaping void with "more militancy."

"And no wonder people are occupying. We oughta be doing more than occupying parks. We oughta start occupying bridges. We start oughta occupying the banks places themselves."

There used to be laws against even this kind of speech.

There used to be law.

There used to be a Constitution.

This union idiot is clueless.

The tents are empty. He should know they paid for them.

Unions should be charged with racketeering.

There should be a blanket federal law, NO uniondues can be removed from a paycheck. the members have to pay DIRECTLY.

for all unions.

In a time of war it is called sedition. Any other time it is called inciting a riot. Try that in Florida and, God forbid, someone gets killed, anyone connected to inciting the riot could and should be charged a an accessory to the crime.

I agree.But you got to understand one thing: For these traitors to be getting away with they are doing, approval has to come from the highest level of Government. To wit: the White House along with orders for the police not to interfere. Come 2912, when these mobs are used to break up Tea Party and Republican candidate campaign events, the orders to the police will include protecting the traitors. Kinda like the night of broken glass in Germany.

my advice would be: Get used to the police not being on our side. At one time they were but not now.

Agreed, sport.

I am completely of the belief that theus federal government is the enemy of freedom, and it is Evil to its core. It is the new Nazi Party for real, I am not kidding.

This is going to get a whole lot worse before it gets any better, if it ever gets any better at all.

You know, there are about ten guys in a port, who are responsible for all of the economic activity ensueing.

I will leave the center-of-gravity analysis up to the reader.

But if you find those ten guys... well, work stops.

Isn’t there laws against fomenting insurrection?

I wonder if the Russian Revolution began this way?

Or any other rise of communism?

I mean... did it look THIS STUPID too?

The union thugs aren’t the problem.

The union cops aren’t the problem.

That situation is self-cleaning.

The media, and the public’s ignorance factor is the problem.

Local tea party chapters should apply for permits to hold rallies in the parks that these trash-baggers are illegally occupying. And then go hold the rally.

They will then either have to get the hell out of Dodge, or find out what it means when the (currently) silent working majority stops tolerating their unAmerican and taunting antics.

These union thugs and trust fund miscreants are threatening to destroy America as we know it yet Big Sis is snooping around on Twitter and Facebook looking for some signs of social upheaval and political unrest.

I'm glad I'm not as frigging stupid as my government assumes I am or I'd be drooling and crapping myself.Unfortunately too many of our fellow citizens are not aware of how govt. does and should operate and take whatever is fed to them without question.

I phart in Napolitano’s general direction.

“Occupy bridges? You keep me from going to work...be prepared to be “accidentally” run over.”

Same here in northern NJ; we have so many untraceable illegals (the ones doing the work UNION workers used to do) that will flatten anyone in their way to get to work. Unfortunately for the unions, they have the most members in the areas with the least jobs (of course - that’s why there are no jobs in those areas).

Maybe they can shut down Detroit, Camden NJ, etc.

With close to 20% of Americans underemployed I would think that the family men that comprise the vast majority of the union rank and file would be worried more about their paychecks and mortgages than to follow their lefty leadership over the cliff.
