Skip to comments.Special Report: The Right to Work demonstrations in Lansing
Posted on 12/17/2012 7:11:19 AM PST by jenk
When we first arrived at the Capitol, it was a little after 8am. As we entered the Capitol building, college students and teachers were already chanting and stomping on all floors of the rotunda. When we reached the top of the stairs, a man in a yellow vest told me to keep moving, dont block the walkway, so I obeyed. One of the guys with me, Rich, told me that the people in the neon yellow and orange security vests are union marshals, and have no authority at all. They control the crowds on behalf of the unions. I would observe their tactics the rest of the day.
Because the Americans For Prosperity tent was the only shelter, food and rest area on the lawn, amidst thousands of angry union members, it became a magnet for union bully tactics. Union captains and marshals are paid by the unions to encourage intimidation while seemingly providing security for the masses. With a massive police force protecting the Capitol, these paid security teams as well as the Michigan Peace Team roamed the lawn. The Michigan Peace Team is a group of people who advocate non-violence, but are less effective than the security teams.

Why not post the whole thing here?
not you again
because I’m busy, it’s 5000 words long and you just go ahead and post the whole thing
Wow. What a rendition! Unbelievable that this is where we are being led.
I’m glad you noticed the Guy Fawkes mask. Its turning up at the scene of a lot of violence lately and no one seems to notice.
One of the 911 calls from the Clackmas mall shooting described the guy as wearing a “V for Vendetta” mask which police later described as a white “hockey type mask”.
One reason not to use your phone as your sole camera. Get a regular digital camera so if it stolen you don't lose your phone. Also it would be good to have one with removable memory and attach the memory card to a wrist strap. That way if the camera is stolen you still have evidence of the left's crimes.
Even without that, be sure to swap memory cards frequently so they can't destroy all the evidence.
You will always be cursed, hanagued and physically abused by the Union and Occupy children until, as you proved in your blog, you give it back to them as they gibve it to you.
In these situations, every “touch” or advance on your space is assault and legelly defensible.
As someone said in your comments, “One finger can be broken...” So, Jen, literally break some of them!
You can’t rationalize with neanderthal thought.
Apparently alot of people get their rocks off making you whine.
You saw some whining?
I saw a polite question.
A polite question, and a polite, concise answer — I’m too lazy, do it yourself.
On the other hand, i’ll have to admit that 5000 words is more than I would want to see posted here, or to go read somewhere else.
Since this is a bloggers/personal post, why not link to the original source material? After all, there are pictures at the original, which are not at the rightscoop site.
So, why push us all to the rightscoop site? I don't understand.
Anyway, here is a link to the original source material, with pictures:
Probably higher pay-per-hit.
The pimp is using us as part of a business model of which Free Republic is a free advertising tool.
I still think that anybody who writes 5000 words is working too hard if they are just trying to get advertising hits on a pay blog site.
And I still think that 5000 words is too many to repost in the entirety. If I wrote a 5000-word blog post, I’d probably post a summary and apologize in the first comment for my inability to condense my thoughts.
On the other hand, some people accuse me of writing that much in comments. Still, I’ve learned to be brief in my columns, and would break anything bigger than 1500 words into multiple posts.
Personally I’m starting to wonder why all anyone would ever post is complaints about bloggers yet doesn’t seem interested in anything anyone at FR has to say.
It seems like a progressive game of distraction to me.
Exactly. And as my mommy always said, “if you don’t have anything good to say....” well, you know the rest. As soon as I see that particular name, I know what the post is going to be, and completely ignore. I will probably be attacked just for answering you. BTW, thanks for the pings, once again.
Thanks for that report, I am forwarding it on to others so they can see the true scope of hatred and violence these idiots are capable of. Oh, and I had NO problem going to the site and reading it there, instead of crying to you to post it all here.
maybe because I don’t care who gets the traffic, and I want as many people as possible to read it, is everything a conspiracy to you?
Thanks for posting, it was a good read.
As for the other, some people have an overwhelming need to bitch about something and be a complete jackass just for the heck of it.....
Cheese with that?
Thanks for the report, I read the whole thing.
Ask the guy with the whine.
Please. It seems to me that the high-pitched mewling we hear is coming from your direction.
It wasn't posted, it was excerpted needlessly.
And you didn't read it here.
So why not post the whole thing here?
Free Republic gets many times the page views than your little blog.
Unless it is actually hits you are after...
Yes I did but I didn't really......I'm merely enabling your addiction for attention.
Do search for Users Humblegunner. If you cant figure it out, I’ll give you explicit directions. Out of the first 30 posts, 16 are specifically him whining about people excerpting. Yup whiny lil bitch if I ever saw one and it aint me honey. Run along now
Bill Clinton and Anthony Wiener tried to make that crap play.
Watch your language, dear.
Thanks for the ping, ‘creek. OUTSTANDING report and OUTSTANDING analysis and OUTSTANDING activism, jenk! Everything about you is OUTSTANDING at “the mob” event.
FReepers at their finest BUMP! You deserve some award (yet to be named or given) again THIS year.
MUST APPRECIATE BUMP!
As did I. Thanks for your work, 'gunner.
Another BUMP for EXTRAORDINARY reporting, analysis and activism! FReeper putting it on the line BUMP!
BUMP for an EXTRAORDINARY report from a FReeper!
BUMP for an EXTRAORDINARY analysis from a FReeper!
BUMP for an EXTRAORDINARY activism from a FReeper!
Jenk, FABULOUS work! Above and beyond the call of duty.
I wrote this.
I posted it at Scoop’s site.
Then I posted it on my site.
Then a nice freeper asked if I would post it here.
I was working, so I excerpted.
Hits on a blog do not equal money unless you have ads.
I do not have ads on my site because I don’t want them.
You bitch about this every damn time I post something, say the same thing, and you have no idea what you are talking about.
You are ignorant.
I’ve had it with you and your bitching.
What is your personal interest in whether Free Republic gets my original source material? Hmm?
If you don’t want to know anything, don’t ever click a link.
I don’t need hits on my site, nor does Scoop need them on his. There is such a thing as sharing.
Stop trying to upset fellow freepers because you want all material posted here.
If there was a stipulation that all information should be posted here in its entirety, there would not be an “Excerpt” box.
If there was no reason for bloggers to post things here there would be no “Bloggers” category.
If there was a reason for you to harass me these past four years other than mental stress, tell me, because I’m seriously considering never coming back because of ignorant bitchers like you.
For what reason do you excerpt your material?
You wrote it, you can post it in full.
It’s really not that difficult to grasp.
Unless you are a blogpimp.
That box isn't for you or your blog.
Just because you see some crack, doesn't mean you have to smoke it.
