Skip to comments.Union Chief Leo Gerard: 'Resistance Movement' Needed to Seize Bridges, Banks in Case OWS Fails
Posted on 11/02/2011 6:30:12 PM PDT by chessplayer
United Steelworkers international president Leo Gerard has a message to the flea party whiny-whiners still camping out instead of sleeping in their parents' basements -- playtime is over.
Just in case the Occupy movement fails -- in other words, when it fails -- Gerard is urging union members to fill that gaping void with "more militancy."
"And no wonder people are occupying. We oughta be doing more than occupying parks. We oughta start occupying bridges. We start oughta occupying the banks places themselves."
One of Obama’s commie buddies. Nuff said!
There used to be laws against even this kind of speech.
There used to be law.
There used to be a Constitution.
That would be strategeric errah.
Gonna be a mother to shut down flyover country. LOL
Wouldn’t surprise me if the thugs beat up bank customers.
This union idiot is clueless.
The tents are empty. He should know they paid for them.
Unions should be charged with racketeering.
There should be a blanket federal law, NO uniondues can be removed from a paycheck. the members have to pay DIRECTLY.
for all unions.
Bring it ***hole. I’ll drop you by the job lot and not lose a second of sleep.
I bet the union pension fund owns bank shares...
In a time of war it is called sedition. Any other time it is called inciting a riot. Try that in Florida and, God forbid, someone gets killed, anyone connected to inciting the riot could and should be charged a an accessory to the crime.
It’s the union way, and capitalism is their enemy.
The unions are going to find out real fast what a minority they are when the rest of us get pissed off enough to stop this nonsense.
Occupy bridges? You keep me from going to work...be prepared to be “accidentally” run over.
Pugnacious leftist civil disobedience ping.
I want hese treasonist traitors arrested and tried NOA!
This is mother ****ing bull***!
They’re doing what the SOB commie obamao is encouraging them to do.
Looks like there’s no way around it. People will get ugly when they have to get to work and these thugs stand in the way.
Isn’t it a crime to incite a riot?
When this guy gets tired of his union gig, he should consider a career teaching English.
They’re looking for their “Kent State moment,” aren’t they? It’s not going to go as they think it will.
I don’t want to see that because about 60% of them agree with us.Though an open season on union thugs would be most welcome.
Some of us are not in right to work states so when one is forced to belong to a union in order to work....not all of us are useful idiots.
my advice would be: Get used to the police not being on our side. At one time they were but not now.
“Gerard is urging union members to fill that gaping void with “more militancy.”
These union thugs need to tread lightly. I don’t think he realizes what he is stirring up.
I am completely of the belief that theus federal government is the enemy of freedom, and it is Evil to its core. It is the new Nazi Party for real, I am not kidding.
This is going to get a whole lot worse before it gets any better, if it ever gets any better at all.
The banks are perfectly capable of failing due to their own greed and incompetence, they don’t need a bunch of unshaven, unshowered misfits to speed the process...
You know, there are about ten guys in a port, who are responsible for all of the economic activity ensueing.
I will leave the center-of-gravity analysis up to the reader.
But if you find those ten guys... well, work stops.
The communists are taking over America and real Americans are just sitting on their thumbs and doing nothing. Violence is here, it past time to clean up the garbage and if it takes smashing empty heads, so be it.
Thanks for the ping.
its called sedition...i beleive...Eric Holder?Anyone? ....crickets.....
% of union members agree with us, and they would be given a right to work amnesty.
More like 38% of union members agree with us, and they would be given a right to work amnesty.
if our country every comes to its senses,your be occupying a gallows
Isn’t there laws against fomenting insurrection?
I wonder if the Russian Revolution began this way?
Or any other rise of communism?
I mean... did it look THIS STUPID too?
“I agree.But you got to understand one thing: For these traitors to be getting away with they are doing, approval has to come from the highest level of Government. To wit: the White House along with orders for the police not to interfere. Come 2912, when these mobs are used to break up Tea Party and Republican candidate campaign events, the orders to the police will include protecting the traitors. Kinda like the night of broken glass in Germany.
my advice would be: Get used to the police not being on our side. At one time they were but not now.”
First Kristallnacht, then the Reichstag Fire Event, and finally martial law.
The union thugs aren’t the problem.
The union cops aren’t the problem.
That situation is self-cleaning.
The media, and the public’s ignorance factor is the problem.
Let’s party like it’s 1939!
Local tea party chapters should apply for permits to hold rallies in the parks that these trash-baggers are illegally occupying. And then go hold the rally.
They will then either have to get the hell out of Dodge, or find out what it means when the (currently) silent working majority stops tolerating their unAmerican and taunting antics.
I'm glad I'm not as frigging stupid as my government assumes I am or I'd be drooling and crapping myself.Unfortunately too many of our fellow citizens are not aware of how govt. does and should operate and take whatever is fed to them without question.
I phart in Napolitano’s general direction.
“Occupy bridges? You keep me from going to work...be prepared to be accidentally run over.”
Same here in northern NJ; we have so many untraceable illegals (the ones doing the work UNION workers used to do) that will flatten anyone in their way to get to work. Unfortunately for the unions, they have the most members in the areas with the least jobs (of course - that’s why there are no jobs in those areas).
Maybe they can shut down Detroit, Camden NJ, etc.
With close to 20% of Americans underemployed I would think that the family men that comprise the vast majority of the union rank and file would be worried more about their paychecks and mortgages than to follow their lefty leadership over the cliff.
Rural union members don’t make good union lock steppers either. I ride to our informal tea party breakfasts with my UAW neighbor.
In the north east they aren’t the minority
lots of nasty ideas flying around from all directions.
OWS reminds me of the “People’s march” to the Philly CC they describe in FEAT.
