Democrats threaten violence on Michigan House floor
Washington Examiner ^ | December 11 | Conn Carroll

Posted on 12/11/2012 9:26:46 AM PST by Kaslin

“There will be blood,” State Representative Douglas Geiss threatened from the floor of the Michigan House of Representatives today as the body debated legislation that would make Michigan the nation’s 24th right to work state.

“I really wish we had not gone here,” Geiss continued. “It is the leadership in this house that has led us here. The same leadership that tried to throw a bomb right on election day, leading to a member switching parties, and came in at the 11th hour with a gotcha bill. For that, I do not see solace, I do not see peace.”

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder had previously said he had no interest in signing right to work legislation this term, but that has changed as unions have made it increasingly more difficult to govern the state. The Detroit Free Press‘ Tom Walsh explains:

Public employee unions opposed Snyder’s moves to put more teeth into emergency manager laws that would enable swifter action to rescue cities and school districts that bungled themselves into insolvency.

In Detroit, Mayor Dave Bing and a spineless City Council were stonewalled by employee unions at every turn, slow-walking needed reforms and cost-cutting while the city burned through cash at a frightening rate.

As a result, Snyder’s patient attempt to help fix Detroit via consent agreement instead of imposing an emergency manager has failed.
To top it off, Snyder found himself having to fight off Proposal 2, the ill-advised November ballot attempt to stuff a bag of goodies for organized labor into the Michigan Constitution.

Michigan has both the highest unionization and unemployment rates in the Midwest. You can watch the House debate live here.

The unions are afraid.

Frightened people are dangerous people.

It’s going to come to this.

The left is “empowered”, and there’s no beating them at the ballot box.

Any resistance to them now will be met with violence.

Wouldn’t really surprise me to see CWII begin with some of Obama’s reps shooting up some State house.

Bring it, dim-bulb-crats.

Progress is inversely proportional to the number of “progressives” in the population.

May as well start revising our downward progress.

Oh goody.
And if a private citizen said that, they’d be arrested already.

And if he does get violent on the floor of the Michigan house, odds are that he’ll never be arrested.
Union Bro’hood after all.

Possibly related.
Same rhetoric.
Different direction.

We need to bring back dueling on the Us House and Senate floors as well as state legislative bodies. There would either be a lot more civility and collegiality or a lot more turnover on the left with idiots like this one being carried out.
