Union Chief Leo Gerard: 'Resistance Movement' Needed to Seize Bridges, Banks in Case OWS Fails

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."

“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.

These union thugs and trust fund miscreants are threatening to destroy America as we know it yet Big Sis is snooping around on Twitter and Facebook looking for some signs of social upheaval and political unrest.

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.

OWS reminds me of the “People’s march” to the Philly CC they describe in FEAT.

I have always recognized that with freedom comes responsibility, that is, our First Amendment rights do not allow for unlimited freedom of speech...it is the “yelling ‘FIRE!’ in a crowded movie theater” type of thing.

Tell these leftists that, and you are a Nazi.

Wrong. Hop over here. You’ll think you’re at FR.

Most States don’t have very many union members, so who is he expecting to take over things? Typical big mouthed union idiot.
