All three networks on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning ignored the violent assaults by union protesters in Michigan, instead vaguely insisting that picketers were simply "voicing their anger" at the "showdown raging in the heartland."
Years ago while Tennesseans were fighting the income tax, a woman was pounding on a small window on the capitol building and accidentally broke it. You would have thought she threw a Molotov cocktail through the window by the coverage the news channels gave it.
If Unions are so good and necessary for “the workers” why do they need the FORCE of GOVERNMENT to make people Join??
Mr. Alinsky had a solution for this, Why, for heaven’s sake doesn’t The Right nominate someone from the MSM to receive ‘Special Attention.’ Analyze everything that is spoken or written by that person and then DEMOLISH them. It should not be difficult to repeat the Rather/CBS episode. Keep doing it until either the public realizes how The Left misleads them or until the supply of nominees runs out.
Idiot press. If they don’t fulfill their constitutionally protected obligation to cover the news then they will be to blame for the explosion as much as any institution in the country.
They are wholly owned and controlled organs of the State, disseminating government propaganda.
"News" has nothing to do with them. Yet they are still setting the context for almost everything the alternative media discusses.
Surprised? I’m in WI; there was a virtual blackout in mini-true about the horrible stuff the commies were doing.
*** crickets ***
With their fists?! Right.
The media always ignores minority on White violence, death cult violence against Christians and Jews, gay violence against gays and union thug violence against industrious hard-working people.
It’s because they like that sort of thing and want more of it.
I used to have a union thug neighbor. He did not actually have the guts to go and get in anyone’s face or take a swing at them. But he was perfectly happy to carry out little acts of revenge/sabotage against their property or their vehicles after dark.
For the same reason I don’t think we’re gonna see Michael Moore showing up at any of these and reliving his grandfather’s Tales of Glory from the Flint Sit Down Strike.
Look for the union label...... then buy something else.
I couldn’t have said it better myself!
I am with you. We have to out Alinsky Alinsky.
They don't need the force of government because over time they have become an active force of government; an essential part of it, and by the looks of the violence that goes unchecked, the shock troops of the Federal government.
So no, they don't have to be beneficial to "working people." Assuming you accept the myth that unions create "kinder, gentler, competent and dedicated" workers.
I wonder how the government provides their "uniforms." Through a Soros-funded NGO?
WHY IS THERE NO POLICE PRESENCE?
Have the police unions passively joined the thugs via their absence?
What's going on there?
...and box cutters. Don't forget, they CAME to the protest bearing box cutters with which to tear down the peaceful counter-protest tent --- and, incidentally, to threaten bodily harm.
I expect serious prosecutions...
I think that's one of the biggest questions needing asking.
Hope somebody on FOX brings this up, repeatedly.
We know the answer, but most in the country don't.
Time for their rude awakening about police departments and their higher ups.
