Union Goons Destroy Man’s Hot Dog Cart While Calling Him ‘N*****’ & ‘Uncle Tom’ (Lansing, MI)
PJ Tattler ^ | December 12, 2012 - 10:23

Posted on 12/12/2012 3:17:11 PM PST by drewh

Early today Clint Tarver, known as “The Hot Dog Guy” here in Lansing had his business attacked and destroyed by out of line and out of control protesters near the Capitol.

Everyone who has passed the hot dog cart knows what a kind and caring individual Clint is. He never fails to bestow a smile or friendly greeting. In no way [did] he provoke this attack, nor any of the behavior displayed toward him.

Mr. Tarver has been operating his food businesses since 1990 in the Lansing area. He had been hired by Americans for Prosperity to cater their tent during Tuesday’s rallies/protests.

So Mr. Tarver runs a business, semi retires, operates a hot dog cart for so long that it becomes a local icon, then gets himself hired by those Koch minions and somehow gets the unions’ tolerant and thoughtful ones to call him names and wreck his business, er, if you’re a liberal and buy the alternate history view of Tuesday’s events. That’s one of the longest and weirdest false flag operations I’ve ever heard of.

Well, it’s either that or the unions that have proven themselves to be thugs over the past few years have once again behaved like thugs.

Your call, really.

Union knuckledraggers are some of the most racist piggies I’ve ever seen.

Wait wait wait... I just read an article stating that REPUBLICANS are intolerant.

Republicans? Really? Don't see a whole lot of black men or women in that crowd, and given the nature of their protest, I'm guessing they're neither Republicans NOR tolerant. Yet WE'RE the racists?

GFY Libs and Dems! Go straight to Hell and FY!

It’s because these unionistas are mentally challenged brown shirted “Useful idiots” on parade! They know nothing but hatred and thugery, as they have been programmed. So many stupid and dangerous people walking around today.

Need to pick off a couple of these goons and give them a fine how do you do.

The only way to stop a bully is to beat the crap out of him. Union thugs get away with this because there is no one to stand up to them.

I’ve met good people who were in unions.

But without violence and intimidation there is no union.

You have the thugs, and the “good” union folks who will not dare to speak out against the thugs or their thuggery.

They may blab on about how evil are the companies they work for. But who they fear are their union brothers.

I’ve met good people who were in unions.

A conscripted workforce doesn't mean a united workforce. The unions have been on the edge of disintegration for a while now.

Mitchell poll: Michigan voters favor right-to-work, 51-41

- By party affiliation: Support is strongest with Republicans (60 percent) and independents (55 percent). Four-in-ten (39 percent) of the Democrats favor it.

- By race: A majority of whites (52 percent) and African-Americans (50 percent) are in support. Support among other racial groups is at 44 percent.

- By union household: A strong majority (56 percent) of non-union households support right-to-work. Support among union households is only at 40 percent.

- By age: Strongest support comes from younger voters between 18-29 (63 percent in favor). A majority of voters 30-39 (50 percent), 50-59 (51 percent) and 70 and older (51 percent) support it. Support among voters 60-69 (46 percent) is lowest among all age groups.

- By gender: Support is strongest among men (56 percent). Less than half of the women (46 percent) are in favor.

- Tea Party Voters: More than three-of-four voters that have a favorable impression of the Tea Party support right-to-work while less than one-in-five (19 percent) oppose it.

And, as usual, no arrest. The governor should immediately FIRE all state police and hire real cops to go in and provide security. I’m sure there are plenty of good out-of-work policemen all over the country.

But he won’t. Scott Walker did nothing to curb the violence in WI either. Wondering just how brave these guys really are.

“Clint” should sue the crap out of the Teamsters Union.

They start there, yes.

Entry level entrepreneur. Like the kulaks and the Juden, he had to be liquidated for being so uppity. This is a lawless nation, and this is a little entry level Kristalnacht.

May God remedy the ills of this nation. Hard.

Well, conservative Americans moved quickly to right the wrong of the left. Here's the latest I found...

Over $17,000 raised! Clint can replace his equipment several times over now, or buy a state-of-the-art hot dog truck, if he wants! Thank you all for coming together and showing what a community rallying together can do. The generousity and support displayed here today far exceeded my expectations, but reached my goal - to show Clint that we stand behind him 100 (or, apparently 342) percent!

But, I seriously doubt that 17K is enough for a 'state-of-the-art hot dog truck'

Local news suggested that the cart was damaged when the AFP tent was taken down. No hint of the racist comments or the violence. Instead the story focussed on the fact that so many chipped in to contribute.

Word is that windows at Romney were broken and tear gas was used to let people leave. No hint of this on the news and NBC, CBS and FOX all reported frame for frame the same news yesterday. Only the newsreaders differed.

Unions need to Die a painful death, while their workers starve under bridges.

Want more ammo, Google “Vincent Chin”. He was beaten to death by two laid off UAW workers in Highland Park Michigan in 1982. They were angry at the “Japs” taking their jobs. (Chin was Chinese) Neither thug went to jail.

When hate crime legislation came up in 97, John Conyers wanted Chin’s name removed because it was a politically “sensitive” pot to stir in his district.

The only amusing part of this was all the knee jerk reactions by the left when the original video was printed.

Now as more and more video emerges they look like the fools and dupes they are.

Another Freeper on another thread posted the following link...it appears nearly 18 grand has been raised for this man so far.

Take that, parasites. You tore up his business in the name of “workers rights,” and the right wing helped him back on his feet with some money for his trouble to boot.

I didn’t notice one black Union thug in that picture. A video of them taking down a tent at the protest - again - not a black protester to be found....I thought only blacks were allowed to say the words n*gger and Uncle Tom to other blacks, guess these Union workers didn’t get the memo....

The union thugs are going to start injuring and murdering more Americans if they aren’t reined in pretty quick. We can’t expect any help from Eric the Holder. I guess Americans are on their own on this one.

Exactly. The vast majority of union members weren’t in Lansing yesterday. In fact a good number of those who were in Lansing were from out of state.

This reminds me of the two SEIU thugs that kicked in the ribs of a diabetic, 135 lb black preacher after he came out of a Tea Party gathering a few years ago. Somebody captured the incident with a video camera, and they were subsequently identified a and arrested. As I remember, they were quietly let go after being charged.

I donated a little bit. Apparently, the fundraising drive is run by a state house staffer. She's probably a friend of Clint's wife who is well known in Republican politics.

After a couple of years of trying to comply with all the regulations thrown at him; a local cart operator recently got his permit to operate — after spending about $25,000 on his cart. (At least $20,000 of that for no benefit, other than compliance with draconian regulations.)

They are the ones who will benefit from right to work and may not send their dues in. However, it will have to be a lot of them. You know that not sending in your dues will get you on a list. You have to be really honorable and brave to stand up to that criminal thuggery.

Retired union member of 30+ years here and I have never in my life voted for a democrat, also have known many conservative union members over the years.

but FReepers don’t want to hear it.

I'm not black but it's gotta be worse for black conservatives here, especially reading the pseudo ebonics posts and ignorant mockery of names black people choose for their children. It's none of my business what free people choose to name their children.
