54: No on 54 Union Thugs Assault Pro-54 Females at Davis/Gore Rally, Los Angeles
Yes on Proposition 54 ^ | 09-19-03 | Justin Jones

Posted on 09/19/2003 7:50:10 PM PDT by Alia

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

UNION THUGS SAVAGELY ATTACK COLLEGE KIDS AT A GRAY DAVIS SPEECH FOR SUPPORTING PROP 54, PROP 54 CAMPAIGN CHAIR WARD CONNERLY DECLARES IT AN ‘OUTRAGE’

SACRAMENTO, CALIF.--Ward Connerly, chairman of the Yes on Proposition 54 campaign, angrily denounced the savage attack several men from an unidentified union and carrying “No on Prop 54” signs unleashed on six college students.

The students, all members of the California College Republicans and in their early 20s, were peacefully protesting at a voter-registration rally held in south Los Angeles and featuring Governor Gray Davis and former Vice President Al Gore. The students stood respectfully outside and carried “Yes on Prop 54” signs.

They were approached by a gang of men, all wearing union shirts and carrying “No on Prop 54” signs, who began verbally harassing them and physically intimidating them by holding their signs over those of the students, standing threateningly close and following them when the students tried to retreat to a safe distance. They also shouted down the students with racial slurs and called one of the female students a “white-washed Mexican.”

Then about 15 of the “No on 54” thugs surrounded two girls, hit them in the face and pulled their hair. Another student who tried to rescue the girls got punched in the back. Finally, all of the students managed to escape to their car and drive away, all the while being followed and yelled at by their bullying attackers. Representatives of the media, including the Los Angeles Times, NBC, CBS, ABC and CNN were present, but it’s unclear how much of the attack they witnessed.

“I cannot express enough my disgust and contempt for brutes who express their political beliefs by beating up on anyone, especially young females,” said Mr. Connerly. “My sympathies go out to the students who had to endure this outrage. They are extremely courageous people who stand up and declare their beliefs, even at risk of bodily harm. I’m proud they stand among the supporters of Prop 54.”

Prop 54 will bar the state and all local California governments from classifying individuals by race in the areas of public education, employment, contracting and most other government operations. Reasonable exemptions exist for medical research subjects and patients, racial classifications required by federal law or for federal funds and certain activities of law enforcement. The state legislature, by a two-thirds vote and with the governor’s approval, can vote to exempt any other reasonable area. Also, the Department of Fair Housing and Employment will receive a 10-year sun-setting exemption.

Members of the media wishing for more information on the attack or who want to get in touch with any of the students can do so by contacting the Yes on Prop 54 office. For more information on Prop 54, please go to www.racialprivacy.org.

There will be no "outrage" against the bullies by any Liberal CA Academics, Feminists, or Health Care Professionals. Al Gore and Davis will deny it happened. Nor will there by any outrage by any known racialist special interest group spokespersons against the ethnic slur.

Democrats will merely play this up as a "non-associated" event. And Health Care Professionals, American Psychologist Institute Members -- will pretend this battery "never happened".

This is getting to be a regular occurance. Perhaps it's time to look at some serious union-busting, with the RICO laws...

Maybe it's time to start hiring security when we demonstrate.

Maybe it's also an idea to alert the media ahead of time so they can start covering our demonstrations and then maybe these leftist pukes will lose their nerve.

Maybe we should start providing our own security.

"Jessica," one of the girls who was hit in the face by the thugs, called John and Ken (KFI radio) today to report on this. Her friend "Tiffany" was also beat up, and both had their hair pulled. Jessica mentioned that she took pictures of the event. (I think she meant of the harrassment and assault.)

I hope she posts those pictures all over the Internet. Go, Jessica!

Sorta like N.O.W. lobbying to get laws passed to reclassify consensual sex between two consenting adults as "sexual harrassment" due to a disparity in power the man may hold over the woman, and then keeping their collective mouths shut when Slick was fondling, groping, and/or having sex with who knows how many women in the White House.

Hypocrisy is the word.

Maybe we should start providing our own security.

The first step is to bring video cameras. Just the presence of a running video camera will scare off people who think they can get away with violence (which is exactly what those union thugs thought, and they were probably right, they are probably going to get away with it). And if there is trouble, you have a video record of what happened, which you can show the police.

I witnessed a vehicular assault after an anti-MMM protest a few years back. Some stupid leftist teenagers from the rally (in their SUV, hypocrites) swerved at one of our group--just as a joke, they swerved away so as not to hit him. The cops stopped them, but couldn't do anything about it because nobody had any evidence.

savage attack several men from an unidentified union

As a union member here in the mid-west, this is really disturbing. I can't wish enough ill-will on to these bastards if the story pans out. Attacking women is just about as low as one can get.

Concealed carry reform is a GOOD thing. It could have lessened the ranks of evil by a few miscreants today if these upstanding Americans had been armed and able to protect themselves.

Union thugs always go after FReepers.

Remember the incident in Philly a couple of years ago?

FReepers (and other conservative demonstrators) should always have one of their group with a video-cam at the ready to record the ugly mugs of the vicious unionites.

Excellent suggestion regarding the video cameras.

You took my point about providing security in excatly the way in which I failed to fully explain it: I'm not necessarily advocating armed security.

It's usually not needed when dealing with bullies.

Then again, any gals out there, ask a few of your beefier conservative boy-type-friends to go along with you. It seems from the article that these were a group of young ladies execising their constitutional rights by themselves.

It's infinitely more fun with mebers of the opposite sex along.

You need to gather in huge numbers so the union thugs will not batter the women and kill the men.

5 isnt enough, 20-30 yes.

I applaud their bravery.

Yes, people need to be prepared for fights, get camera crews to make sure that idiots will get photographed.

I try not to talk to the UCLA undergrads unless absolutely necessary, especially because the Bruin Republicans are pretty squishy.

UCLA has a YAF group, though, I think.

I like my law school ivory tower, thank you.

A video camera AND a .357 tucked in the waistband just in case. I don't hold truck with ANY union thug that uses strongarm tactics.

Personally, I would view ANY unionist inclined to such actions as a criminal intent on harm and as an armed citizen, that would be a VERY touchy situation.

The RAT's better come up with a better vanguard of their faith. The time has come where their blood banners might get splattered.

tsk tsk.. one of my best friends took the same road as you from Berkeley to UCLA law school. If Senator Rico Oller's Leg Director, and Barbara Lee's 1996 Senate opponent could be a member of the YRs in Law School so can you.

You need to march in there with a bunch of conservative insurgents and take the group back.

I'd make that the second step. The first step would be to arm yourself. Firearm would work best but given it's a panty waste, gunphobic state, a baseball bat will probably have to suffice.

Yes, you are right about the firearms however the armor suggestion is too defensive in nature. If attacked, I prefer dishing out rather than rec. so let's see if we can agree on the weapon. Is there any particular problem with the bat? How about pepper spray?

Jessica also called the Larry Elder show today. Her story is pretty infuriating. She said every time the TV cameras pointed their way, the union thugs would push their own signs in front of the "Yes on 54" signs to block them. I guess free speech is only for people with certain views!

Excellent graphic.
I've been marking up any form (including the census) that requests for 'ethnic' data with a big X, and writing in 'American', for the past 10+ years.
There's only one race, and we're all descended from Noah and his family from the not too distant past. This 'ethnic Balkanization' is just an attempt to divide people.

I was a union memeber at one time. When I was elected shop steward I took my brand new badge to the local range and put 6 10mm rounds (from a smith 610) into the Union Gear symbol on the badge--about an inch and a half circle. This thrilled all the folks I represented (third shift hated the union and its former representation--thats why I was elected) and when I was confronted by the union thugs and hotheads, of which there were a few, I proceeded to approach the plant chair-- the highest authority I had access to and also one of those that was offended by my badge--and told him If anything happens to me, my family, my property, including vehicles, home, or tool box, I am holding YOU responsible, I don't care who does it.--mind you I didn't threaten. After some mouthing off about how people sacrificed for the union and more spew about how I should be ashamed and was a bad steward, I reiterated what I told him and walked out. The hotheads suddenly shut up. And I was left alone. Moral: find the source and shut it down any way possible..:)

Keyword search for 'Don Adams' to get started.
I remember the day well. clinton was coming to Philly. Unions were driving big trucks around blaring music to support the president. This is right around the time of impeachment.
I remember glaring at a truck as I crossed Market to head home. And then I thought about the ramifications.
Anyway, while protesting, the union leader 'hatted' Don Adams. That is, he put a hat on him and then IMMEDIATELY a dozen union members jump on him and beat the shit out of him.
Better yet, it gets caught on tape. By the news media.
Guess who gets arrested? Yup, Don Adams.

This is similar to a situation at an Eagles preseason game a few years ago. TV taped some dude getting his teeth knocked out of his face by a guy at least a foot taller and 100 pounds heavier. The guy who lost teeth was arrested for assault. The other guy was Union. And the reporter even stated it.

The union head who hatted Don eventually died, but not before they found his cache of ballistics and supplies for Y2K. Interviewed on TV, he told the cameras he expected there to be mass riots and that his union would bring order.
It's like nothing has changed since 1920 for some of these idiots. And they vote.
