Skip to comments.CA State Worker Says SEIU Thugs Beat Him Up
Posted on 11/07/2009 7:06:27 AM PST by FrontPageMag.com
As the nation waits to see when or if SEIU members involved in a physical confrontation with Kenneth Gladney outside a health care town hall meeting in August will ever be prosecuted, another allegation of union violence has cropped up. A California state worker went to the hospital bloodied and bruised Thursday night as a result of a beating administered in an SEIU union hall. Kourosh Kenneth "Ken" Hamidi says four or five members of the Service Employees International Union local 1000 assaulted him as he entered their Sacramento meeting with a video crew for his public access TV show.
Hamidi says union leaders ordered him to be attacked, while local 1000 leaders claim Hamidi assaulted the union members first. Police Sgt. Norm Leong told the media, "The statements we received kind of conflict about who started it and who provoked it." What is beyond dispute is the video that shows multiple rank-and-file attacking Hamidi on the floor.
Ken is a reporter for SHOUT TV (Strength Holds Our Unions Together) and an indefatigable critic of what he considers local union corruption. A native Iranian who came to America in 1978, Hamidi ran for president of local 1000 last May. He has since shot a number of episodes informing state employees of their rights to object to non-germane uses of their forced union dues (e.g., political lobbying for the Left) and criticizing everyone from local leaders to SEIU President Andrew Stern. He says the beating was to silence his activism.
Hamidi has a history of activism in his new country...

They’re not called “Purple People Beaters” for nothing.
This is what, the hundredth SEIU instigated brawl?
The laws of our country no longer protect the innocent people from the thugs, they protect the thugs from the innocent people.
Eventually they'll fix that. Probably by changing to Brown Shirts.
Consider the analogy of the movie The Patriot with Mel Gibson: American Patriots employed a war tactic of killing platoon, squad, company and unit leaders first, because they knew the GOONS in the British army could not/ would not fight or function in their absence.
Don’t go after the low level thugs. Go after the leadership who inspire, control, direct and fund them.
An interesting story. An Iranian who comes to America, and as a good citizen, tries to expose union corruption, and gets beaten by Obama’s govenment protected thugs!
Are we living in “bizarro world”???
Friends, don’t expect protection, justice or due process from this Obama government, because it is a “thug-ocracy”. If you mix it up with these people, you’d better be smart about it and be prepared to defend yourself or take it to them first.
The link does not have any video of Mr Hamadi being beaten. It does show the aftermath of a beating.

Oh that’s goood...
Oh that’s goood...
Unfortunately, I didn’t come up with that one myself. :-(
No video of beating, therefore no video of who attacked who first.
Just a “he said, she said”.
Love that tagline. It’s so true.
Two words: open carry.

It’s thug season.
It’s from “Let’s Get The Show On The Road”, by the Michael Stanley Band.
My question is this... why did he take a beating? He should have pistol whipped those thugs into submission. Oh wait, it’s California. Can’t carry. Ok... He should have beat them with a stick until their family 10 generations back felt it.
I’m sorry but I don’t understand why people allow political intimidation like this. Someone harms you for speaking out against the thugs in charge, harm them back. IT IS your RIGHT to defend yourself.
