The great thing about Democracy – as I’m sure you’ll all agree – is that once the campaigns, debates and battles are over and the people have spoken, everyone can pick up the pieces and get on with productive work to advance the principles each side believes in. Clearly, such is the case in Michigan, where defeated but undaunted union advocates have already begun dusting themselves off and …
LANSING A speaker at a union protest against right-to-work legislation said if Gov. Rick Snyder signed the bill he would get “no rest” and that protesters would be at his “daughter’s soccer game.” …
The Rev. Charles Williams II made the comments Tuesday to loud cheers before a group of thousands of union workers. After his promises to harass Gov. Snyder, he introduced Rep. Richard Hammel, D-Mt. Morris Township, and House Minority Leader Tim Greimel, D-Auburn Hills. Williams is a Detroit-area pastor and left-wing activist.
Gov. Snyder later that day signed a bill into law making Michigan a right-to-work state. One of his daughters is a 16-year-old high school student.
Well, that’s just lovely. The truly ironic part of all of this is that Governor Snyder wasn’t even working on the whole Right to Work thing as the initial part of his term. He was pushing for some fiscal sanity and spurring job creation. It was the people of the state who elected representatives in the legislative branch who brought the issue forward. At that point the governor had to weigh the merits of the legislation and act upon it. And yet those who came out on the short end of the stick feel that democracy is best served by chasing his 16 year old daughter around to school events.
Should the governor be worried? Well, given the calm, reasoned welcome that Steven Crowder received from these guys, it should certainly give him pause. The governor, of course, should have access to some form of personal security which will hopefully keep him and his family safe from violence, but the same can not be said for everyone else in the state who may be hoping to find a job. But in the meantime, Reverend Williams and his flock will be hanging around the soccer field.
Unfortunately for this logistical brain trust, there was still one wrinkle in their plan.
It appears that union protesters would have little luck finding the governor at the soccer field. According to a player profile on AnnArbor.com, his daughter participates only in softball and volleyball.
Ah, well. At least your heart’s in it. Let’s go to the video on this chipper Saturday morning.

This threatening clown is a “reverend”? He may be (in some phony “church” like the “Reverend Al Sharpton”) but he is not a man of God.
Sounds like the AFL-CIO-UAW has gone feral. Maybe they could be added to the 'in season' list of game animals in Michigan.
Call out the National Guard on these phonies.
And yet if you hang an empty chair in your own yard you will get a visit by the Secret Service.
But if a union goon threatens a sitting Governor’s family?
Ummm, Rev......I don't think you are supposed to partake in such events. Perhaps several Bible studies can help, though I doubt it.
BTW if anyone wants to help encourage Rick Snyder to sign the bill to allow guns in schools that’s sitting on his desk, here is a thread.
and here is his twitter address if you want to send a direct message.
welcome to dictatorship.
I hope the governor kicks his ass just for general purposes and does it himself. Leave the kids alone.
It’s time to ban all Unions, as they are increasingly the main source of violence in America.
This is the type of guy you want to keep an eye on. He has made threats and he could come armed and dangerous.
Were I the Governor, I’d have the State Police arrest any protestor at the soccer game on suspicion of “stalking to commit pedophelia.”
My first thought also. Don’t they have laws against stalking in Michigan? If not, they need one.
ask Sarah Palin How civil the left is after an election
the progressive left are America’s brown shirts
The tyrannical left have always been totalitarians at heart and now that the union gravy train is going off the rails and the dues money circuit - from members to union honchos to the Democrat party - is threatened they’ve dropped any pretense of decency or civility and are showing themselves for the thugs they really are. This kind of threat against a sitting governor’s teenage daughter should be seriously investigated and any hint of it being carried out should be prosecuted. Unfortunately, that probably won’t happen and the ‘reverend’ will claim he was just joking (what a sense of humor) or that his remarks were simply ‘rhetoric’ or taken out of context. Anything but the ugly truth that those kinds of very personal threats demonstrate the slimy underbelly of unionism (and it’s proponents on the left) today.
