In the unfolding of recent events, well-informed citizens have likely noticed the hypocrisy that has shown through the actions and inaction of many affiliated with trade unions and the modern civil rights movement. Most recently, this hypocrisy related to union practices could be seen in last month’s union protest of then-pending right-to-work legislation in Lansing at the Michigan State Capitol. Just as is almost exclusively true with all public union activity, many of the protesters gathered in this assembly spewed insults and foul language and carried out violence against not only their outspoken detractors, but even against reserved individuals who they perceived might be in disagreement with their cause. Two examples gaining much exposure involved Steven Crowder and Clint Tarver. Steven Crowder, Fox News contributor, comedian, and political activist, is known for his irreverent and politically incorrect humor, as well as his outspoken conservative stances on practically every major current issue.

Always have been sanctioned thugs in democrat circles. The KKK were democrat thugs and that has just moved into the control of the unions. More thugs, the sons of the KKK. Just as violent and hateful. Just the same sense of entitlement.
