That video disgusts me. From the reports on Twitter, there will women and children in the tent. Despicable union rats out to destroy America.

Michigan is a concealed carry State. Time to shoot a few of these thugs.

That would not bother me, not even the slightest bit. America has too many of these violent thugs and a little attrition would help to tame the rest.

I hate sounding like a broken record, but considering how the media treated the teapartiers, their silence on this kind of union violence makes me seeth.

These people are criminally stupid, but what irks the “H” out of me is they will not be punished sufficiently for their crime, the harm they did to those people in the tent as it will be called by Leftist activists, be they judges, or whatever as first amendment protected protest rather than the crime against humanity it really is.

I use to point out that labor unions were a product of Communist philosophy. Most would just berate me as “crazy”. I would then ask them who said the following: “Workers of the world unite”. Most didn’t know.....I told them Karl Marx. I usually just got crickets after that.

All I have to do is see how these union thugs are reacting to people having the right to choose whether to join a union or not to know these are communist punks. If someone doesn’t want to join a union they shouldn’t have to..gee I thought the Democrat Party was all about “choice” yet they don’t want people to have the right to choose whether they want to join a union or not, they have to be forced to join one..Communist punks, that is what they are..figures Obama would adore them, A Commie POS supporting Commie POS

Union thugs are real brave when they're in mobs or hiding in the dark. They like to use slingshots to blind people and such.

When they attack you, be sure you have a video camera and a firearm.

I suspect that he’ll probably be thrown overboard by his union next time a contract comes up. He’s proven himself to be a troublemaker and I wouldn’t be surprised if getting rid of him becomes part of negotiations. The company will give a quarter over the next year but only if he’s gone.

I saw it happen to our in house organizer when I was in the AFL-CIO. We got our raise and the troublemaker was fired for the first minor screw up with no protest from the union.

Saw a cable news report earlier (Fox Business) with the reporter showing the collapsed tent and indicating that the reporter didn't see anything. but reporting laughingly on comments that maybe the tent would still be up if it had been pitched with union labor. There should have been arrests and major push back from the supporters of freedom. With all this video, I would hope that AFP will press charges against any who are identified.

I knew Michelle Malkin would cover this!

With people you You Cirpple, Michelle, and our people out in the Twitterverse, the Unions thuggery is there for all to see.

Any good will they might have had they blown with Bringing Wisconsin close to the "Bleeding Kansas" era of our history.

Has your Governor signed it into law yet?

The governor will sign it tomorrow due to some sort of procedural maneuver but it sounds like letting it sit till tomorrow takes much of the wind out of their sails for future court challenges.

It will be signed and the unions are defeated.

I was thinking the same thing. Nothing disperses a crowd like a few well-stationed BAR's on full auto!

Seriously, these thugs are going to get violent, and when they do, they need to be met with overwhelming deadly force. It's time for the money-laundering wing of the DNC to lose their monopoly status.

Unions don’t get to steal peoples’ money without consent.

That’s what passed.

And the Unions are violent.

Well, if I were guaranteed the right to steal by law and someone took away my right to steal, I guess I’d be upset too.

But I’d still be a stinking violent thief.

I agree.If my wife or child had been in that tent, when I made my way out, I would have killed the first one of them I came in contact with. He would have gotten to something he had never held before—his intestines.
