Mike Tobin assaulted by Union Thugs just now on Fox News
Fox News ^ | February 27, 2011

Posted on 02/27/2011 2:14:11 PM PST by vladimir998

I believe the reporter's name is Mike Tobin. He was the reporter who said last night on Geraldo's show that the thugs had hatred in their eyes. He said the crowd was hateful again today. The thugs started chanting against Fox News, blocking the camera and then, just a couple of seconds after the on screen image of the thugs at work was replaced with one of the occupied cap. building rotunda, the reporter could clearly be heard saying one thug had just hit him!

If that’s the case, then they’ve overplayed their hand. Not that many in the media would care (look what happened to that female correspondent in Egypt and the media behavior afterward). But, if played right, it will expose for all to see the real degenerates behind this movement.

Tobin’s a big dude. It’d have been great to see him drop the mic and kick the thug’s ass.

Heard it, didn’t see it. Teachers (and Union Thugs) hitting newscasters. Imagine if they bothered to smack around a few of the kids in school like they did when we were kids. Might produce different results, after all this is ALL FOR HE KIDS don’t you know (wink).

I’m watching too. And FNC moved to another topic! They should stay on live and document what those animals do when they’re allowed out of their cages!

America needs to see the underbelly of these beasts.

These libtard cowards are throwing tantrums in the vain and forlorn hope that it will intimate the patriots and masses


After they see it will fail, they will step it up. From harassment and intimidation to, simple assaults and vandalism. When that program fails as well it will escalate to violent assaults and arson. How far will murder, terror and death squads be from us then?


My fear is that one day the mob will pick the wrong citizen, one who knows and practices the freedom guaranteed by the Second Amendment. Then it will be on like popcawn (as we like to say in the hood)...

That's what I said: "Not that many in the media would care (look what happened to that female correspondent in Egypt and the media behavior afterward)." I also said, if played right it could become a gigantic plus for us.

There has been little live coverage over the last two days or so. Personally I think its because most media is trying to hide the bad behavior of leftists.

If this follows the historical union protest curve, we can expect dynamite bombings on Wisconsin streets before it is over.

Yep. And after the incident(s) the mainstream media will blame the violence on those who were merely defending themselves, ignoring the countless assaults by the crazed leftist mobs.

Saw that segment. The media set themselves up to make these thugs look even worse by trying to paint the Tea Party as violent when they weren't. Now that we see true hate and violence the contrast is even more dramatic.

Tobin has reported from Iraq and Afghanistan. I’m sure he felt safer there than dealing with America’s union thugs.

I only watch FOX, can’t take the others, but I figured they wouldn’t cover this and prefer to hide the bad behavior. I pray the majority of taxpayers wake up to this scam the unions and Dem’s have going.

one thing I have learned in the past couple of years reading where the bullies, (SIEU/ACORN/unions) attack those people the don’t like, is to YELL, Say what is happening to you at the time, scream, keep yelling..... don’t take it quietly and let them think they can scare you.. Keep saying, over and over what they are doing to you...

..And the sit in begins inside the building. LEO’s should lob 4-5 canisters of tear gas right in the middle of the floor, then cuff every protester as they hit the exits!

And I’m just wondering... many of these goons are teachers... hmmmm.... don’t they teach little skulls full of mush NOT to bully??

I don’t know his athletic background, but I’ve always thought he looks like a rugby player!

These creeps refusing to leave the capitol building should be cut off from food, water, electricity and plumbing, then see how tough they are. But people of that character would probably then vandalize the building before they fled.

Hussein and his cult are just WAITING for someone to take revenge on them.

The media, too, is NOT reporting the hateful actions and words of the Hussein worshiping union zombies...they, too, are waiting for someone to throttle the idiots....THEN they’ll begin screaming bloody murder....and Hussein will try to come in as a “hero” and ask for civility.

The mantra is old and boring....and no one, so far, is taking the bait.

Hussein is a failure.

For anyone on Twitter, you can follow his live feed on @MikeTobinFox.

Gregg Jarrett just said Mike had been shoved, shouted at and hit, and called them “thugs and bullies.” Said they’re subjecting him to “obnoxious harrassment,” and that he won’t apologize for calling them thugs and bullies.

Guest saying that teachers who compared Gov. Walker to mass murderers like Hitler and Stalin, at the very least, don’t know their history very well.

Michael Goodwin, Fox guest, also said that the Tea Partiers policed themselves and that the rallies were the cleanest the Park Police had ever seen. (Well, we knew that)

“This is about intimidating and delegitimizing the opposition, which eliminates their argument.”

Hemmer again: “reprehensible and insufferable behavior. It’s not everyone, but very few people are calling them out.” “You expect this kind of behavior when reporting from the ME, but this is Madison, WI, for God’s sake.”

Goodwin also discussed the entitlement of the fake doc’s notes, and that they’re saying to people of WI, “We deserve to tax you more so we can be paid more. Their benefits cannot be touched, even though everyone else has suffered great [economic] losses.”

I agree that these thugs would probably vandalize the building if services were cut off and the union thug leaders would think nothing of it.

Can you imagine what the enemedia would be saying if this was a Tea Party group instead of union members?

Good little thugs doing the bidding of their masters in the Democrat party. Democrats - Thieves (politicians, Soros), Thugs (unions, old media), Thralls (college students, black voters) and Thickheads (college instructors, socialists).

I'd like to think that Tobin issued a warning along the lines of "If that happens again, I'm going to shove this mic up your a*s and a national TV audience is going to see me make a citizen's arrest..."

He looks like he can take care of himself.

Do they have the National Guard there or just capitol police?

I like that idea - give those leeches a deadline and then proceed with tear gas. Though there would be some drama queens who intentionally stay behind just to later report the trauma inflicted upon them by the evil govt.

I highly doubt that that video will see the light of day.

Can’t let the little taxpayer see who these people really are.
Remember the female reporter in Egypt?

Not until they have what they want, taxpayers fighting back, and then THAT will be broadcasted allll over.

The Democrat party is controlled and supported by radicals, socialists and communists. They suckered the country into voting for them under false pretense in 2008.

There are no more ‘moderates’ left in that party. They either left, resigned, or are afraid to lead anymore.

NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO NEGOTIATE with these criminals and traitors!

We must hold the Republican’s feet to the fire going into 2012.

These STATIST (i.e. “Liberals/Progressives/Socialists/Communists” lovers) must be defeated and destroyed as a political force in this country!

So brave when they have the mob behind them. So lost and impotent when they have to stand on their own.
