Pro-Union Activist Threatens the Michigan Governor: 'We'll Be at Your Daughter's Soccer Game'

Courtesy of the Weekly Standard, please check out the following union thuggery: Pro-Union Activist Threatens the Michigan Governor: 'We'll Be at Your Daughter's Soccer Game'

A speaker at a protest against Michigan's right-to-work legislation said that Republican governor Rick Snyder will "get no rest" from pro-union activists if Snyder signs the bill into law.

"Just know one thing, Rick Snyder: You sign that bill, you won't get no rest," said Rev. Charles Williams II at the Tuesday rally in Lansing, according to Michigan Capitol Confidential. "We'll meet you on Geddes Road. We'll be at your daughter's soccer game. We'll visit you at your church. We'll be at your office."


Union Speaker to Michigan Governor: 'We'll Be At Your Daughter's Soccer Game!'

Following the threats by the Reverend Charles William II to the governor's daughter, state representatives Rick Hammmel and Tim Greimel pandered to the crowd, complaining about union "rights" to being taken away.

Greimnel called the bill the most "anti-middle-class agenda" the state has ever seen.

Really?

I propose this bill was one of the most favorable bills in support of the middle-class that Michigan has ever seen.

The truth of the matter is Collective Bargaining neither a Privilege nor a Right.

Five Ways Collective Bargaining Tramples Various Unalienable Rights

  1. Collective bargaining agreements take away the right of individuals to pursue a career of their dreams void of union affiliation
  2. Collective bargaining agreements force individuals into organizations against the free will of those members
  3. Collective bargaining agreements force union dues out of members who do not even want to belong
  4. Collective bargaining agreements dictate what members can and cannot do with their free time.
  5. Collective bargaining agreements even dictate what non-members can and cannot do with their free time!
Union activists have things ass-backwards. Michigan has suffered mightily because of it. Detroit was destroyed by unions. Jobs fled the state. If that's not anti-middle-class, what is?

I commend the legislature for passing this pro-middle-class legislation that will reduce costs to cities throughout the state, putting more money into taxpayer pockets at the same time.

Public unions only exit via coercion, threats, and vote buying such as that displayed by Rev. Charles Williams II.

Public unions serve no purpose and even FDR agrees. For details, please see Public Union Protesters More Like Greek Extortionists than Egyptian Freedom Fighters; Unions Under Fire in Wisconsin, Ohio, Tennessee; Student Idiocy

Don’t anti-stalking laws apply for this sort of behavior?

It’s so nice to see a Black Minister threatening white people. This guy must belong to the Jackson/Sharpton/Wright “church.”

You would think the union people would be happy now they don’t have to be in a union.

Where is the gratitude?

Not to worry. The GOP will play nice and say “don’t do that”. That should teach them. /s

Isn't it ironic that while we are talking about the Insanity of the Shady Hook school shooter, and how someone should have know to do something about him,

Yet, here we are discussing the words of a living INSANE person threatening to do something to the Governors children.

I suppose if he or someone does manage to do that deed, we and the media will all come back here and discuss how someone should have know to do something about him. What were the signs? lol

Oh, the irony.

They are cowards. They are losing their cushy tax paid chair and can’t handle it. Henry Ford would have already beat their skulls to mush.

Where’s the talk about banning unions if they threaten violence? Shouldn’t this be on the same level as the demand for banning guns from law abiding citizens who own guns because they have the “potential” to create a violent act?

No kidding. Aren’t the hands and feet of these thugs considered *assault weapons*? From what I’ve seen on display in MI and WI, etc., it seems so.

Threatening an elected Governor is not illegal? Hmmmm maybe not for unions.

Look it is not just the Gov...

"Others" ( no I won't name them, the left can lerk here ) that were key in making this happen are being threatened. Yes the emails have gone out from local tea parties to let their members know who is being harassed and to support them morally, i.e. let them know you were greatful for their efforts etc.

Pray for these folks.

Does it matter? Republicans always prosecute their own but not the non-loyal opposition.

“Isn’t it ironic that while we are talking about the Insanity of the Shady Hook school shooter, and how someone should have known to do something about him......Yet, here we are discussing the words of a living INSANE person threatening to do something to the Governors children”......

Pathetic, the hypocrisy they are allowed to get away with...I would be visited by the authorities for that kind of threat.....Turns my stomach, and I actually do pray for help with the resentment I have for black people.....I can pretend it’s not there to everyone else, but I can’t hide it from myself or God......

I understand that feeling. They have brought this on themselves and they do all they can to make it worse every day.

We were raised with Civility and the Golden Rule...

Seems they missed all that somehow.

Even Morgan Freeman, of all people, got it right. He said that this is not about guns and that we can all help by TURNING OFF THE NEWS!
