Michigan Locals Raise Funds For 'Hot Dog Guy' After Union Thugs Destroy His Supplies
Fox News ^ | December 12, 2012 | Natalia Angulo

Posted on 12/12/2012 10:43:00 PM PST by VitacoreVision

Clinton Tarver has been serving hot dogs to hungry locals in downtown Lansing, Mich., for the last five years, but a brush this week with a pro-union protest literally upended his small business in a matter of minutes.

During a protest against right-to-work legislation in Michigan's capital, Tarver’s catering supplies were destroyed when demonstrators tore down the tent where he was serving and trampled his gear.

I have a few lethal questions to ask about this guy's intentions.
Was he set up there in support of Democrat unions thinking he was one of
them just because he was Black?

What did he expect from Democrats when they congregate? And there's no doubt he knew
the unions would be there that day raising hell and looking for trouble.

Yes, to bad he got smashed. But I have to wonder why he was there at all
surrounded by Fat White violent thugs. My answer is exactly how I see it,
he was there in support because unions are Democrats and voted Obama by majority.

And so what if he is a business man, he is part of the problem we're facing today
by voting in people who are destroying this country. I'll show no mercy to
Democrats of any flavor. Let them all go unemployed and broke!

There is plenty of information about Mr. Tarver already published and on this site. The fact you just chose to besmirch him before getting informed tells me all I need to know about you.

For the record, Mr. Tarver was contracted by Americans For Prosperity to provide food. Mr. Tarver is known in Lansing as “The Hotdog Guy”. When the union thugs tore down the AFP tent, trapping women underneath, his setup was destroyed as well. Union thugs also called him racial epithets and called him an Uncle Tom. While Clinton says he is not political is wife apparently is a conservative with AFP.

Your disgusting jump to conclusion about this man, based solely on his skin color, has no place on FR. Begone with ye.

Maybe to sell Hot Dogs. Even Fat White Violent Thugs eat. After all, business is likely to be better in a crowd than some place deserted.

If he had a liberal bone in his body, he's been mugged, now.

When I read this title, I thought, Locals? Union Locals? But from the many other stories posted here about it, I know that was not the case.

“Clint is more talented than Barack Obama. He can run a hotdog stand.”

You are now in the running for a citation in Bartlett’s Quotations.

Charles Krauthammer recently observed,in analyzing Osama Obama's dismal record,that before becoming President Osama hadn't even managed so much as a candy shop.

I’ve know Clint and his wife Linda personally for a number of years. Both are very conservative. Linda is politically active. Clint is a downtown institution—to live in Lansing is to know the Hot Dog Man. He was hired by AFP as a caterer while they supported RTW legislation. He is not billing AFP after what transpired at the rally—that’s the kind of guy he is. Don’t know if that answers your questions but I hope it helps.

Actually, he was hired by the people who had their tent destroyed- and he was in the tent trying to help someone get out. It was when he returned to collect his belongings that he was called names and had his belongings destroyed.

(AND he is on record as a Mitt Romney supporter to boot.)

Actually, he is quite political - he was a staunch Romney supporter and even showed up at the Romney rally wearing a red suit. Everything else you wrote was correct, I just want to clarify that one point. Clinton is a great guy - I've interacted with him on many occasions and he wouldn't say an evil thing about anyone whether or not he agreed with their political positions. This was a shame. He was just trying to earn a living.

Obama would just tell him he didn't build that, so the fact that his union homies trashed it shouldn't matter.

I learned about this yesterday. Actually, if you do a search, as I did, you’ll find it was reported all over. There is also a YT clip of Mr Tarver’s appearance on a local radio show.

Thanks for the clarification. The website I was using for reference said that Clinton or his wife had said he wasn’t political. Heh, so much for reporting these days.

Oh look you’re right - it’s lead story everywhere.

MSNBC did a huge report on it last night and the New York Times is giving it front page coverage.

How did I miss all of that? :)

I'm conditioned by the democrats to believe that every Black is a victim and of racism.
So when do I sit idly by and parse those that are not, at what point does the Conservative
enemy of the left fall to their slander and concede defeat.

We've been hornswaggled so many times that the outcome is harsher than the intention.
And regardless of the intention there will be repercussions, such as from myself.

If my dealing with possible con jobs and raw perceived victims is racism to you,
then you should concede defeat because of your insinuation that questioning a Black
persons intentions are Racist. This is the result of overplay by the left at every turn,
and you've fallen into their trap.

And yet the liberals still swear that it was Tea Party ralliers who did that to black Congressmen after the House vote to pass Obamacare when Pelosi marched into the crowd with her gavel held high.

I can tell you for a fact that Clint Tarver is not a democrat. I've met him before although I don't really know him. I do know he's a Republican because I met him and his wife at a Republican event.
