Detroit-Area Pastor Threatens Campaign of Harassment Against Mich. Gov. and Family

'We'll Be At Your Daughter's Soccer Game!'

Union protest speaker tells governor that union members will 'visit you' everywhere over right-to-work bill

A speaker at a union protest against right-to-work legislation said if Gov. Rick Snyder signed the bill he would get "no rest" and that protesters would be at his "daughter's soccer game."

The Rev. Charles Williams II made the comments Tuesday to loud cheers before a group of thousands of union workers. After his promises to harass Gov. Snyder, he introduced Rep. Richard Hammel, D-Mt. Morris Township, and House Minority Leader Tim Greimel, D-Auburn Hills. Williams is a Detroit-area pastor and left-wing activist.

Gov. Snyder later that day signed a bill into law making Michigan a right-to-work state. One of his daughters is a 16-year-old high school student.

"Just know one thing, Rick Snyder: You sign that bill, you won't get no rest," Williams said. "We'll meet you on Geddes Road. We'll be at your daughter's soccer game. We'll visit you at your church. We'll be at your office.

"Because Michigan workers will not take it laying down — by any means necessary!" he said.

Geddes Road is where the Snyder residence is located.

He made the threats prior to the shootings, but still needs to have a visit from the Michigan State Police Governor’s Security Detail.

Add to that the FBI.

When your Union is stronger than your love of Jesus Christ you need to rethink your life.

This man is no apostle in the service of God.

He is just another Union Goon.

Rev. Williams II may have simply confused Jesus for Che when he decided to become a proclaimer; lefties usually make the mistake in reverse order.

The Left is always given a pass on this stuff by the media. If a tea partier had said something like this it’d be national news.

That’s just how it is.

Socialism is a product of feelings ... practiced by millions.

Capitalism is a matter of facts, practiced by thousands.

Guess who wins elections.

Socialism over Capitalism, basically, is the reason Atlas Shrugged.

Get some sense, people.

By Any Means Necessary - BAMN - the group of leftist instigators who formed in Ann Arbor to fight the discrimination lawsuit the female student brought against U of M because their admissions policy was to automatically give 20 points to black applicants.

They did this to Scott Walker and his family in WI too - surrounded the family home, went to the boys' football games, followed Walker to every single appearance to shout him down. There is actually a group called the "Walker Stalkers".

For all I know it's still happening - the media is completely silent on this sort of stuff.

Liberals don’t really care about the slaughter of children. They care about the armed citizen who might blow union thugs away when they make their move on the Gov.’s daughter. Leftist thuggery is too dangerous. They have to improve the odds and power of fear and intimidation.

Actually, liberals celebrate their power to murder the innocent.

Maybe “we” need to organize, and show up at these events to support those who come under these kind of threats. It worked with Chick-Fil-A.

Until someone takes a jerk like this Rev to court or has him put in jail then they will keep doing this stuff and get away with it.

My response to the so-called pastor, if I were Gov. Snyder: “If ANY harm comes to ANY member of my family, there will be no place on earth for you to hide. There will be no place dark enough, or deep enough, or remote enough, that I will not find you. That is no threat; that is a promise.”

Rev. Charles Williams is on the edge of reality ready to leap into total paranoia like the piece of excrement in Connecticut. How many others will he take with him, or convince others to join him to do the same thing?

Williams and his union cult need to spend some time in rubber rooms while they are being treated.

I believe this is the time to threaten the pastor with the same stalkking kind of treatment. He has decided to make himself a public figure and now has opened himself up to that(if what he is claiming is that the governor is a public figure). Same goes for the idiot union thug that belted Steven Crowder. Conservatives had better learn to take off the gloves and fight as dirty as their opponents.

His comments suck big time, yet we find that the heads of every single religous groups, Catholic, Protestant etc etc want government so “feed the poor.” The moral compass is out of enlingment.

Sounds to me that there may be churches that need to have their finances looked over by the government, and their tax exempt status threatened...

Oh, wait a minute... Sorry, I forgot, it’s only conservative Churches where this sort of thing happens... Funny how leftists never whine about “church & state” when it’s leftist preachers and churches preaching their gospel of death. See “the reverend” Emmanuel Cleaver.

Gee, since all that “Christian love”, that was evoked by that pastor, is a matter of record, here are the words I leave for the Governor of Michigan:

“I was fearful for my life, and the life of my daughter.”

May the moment that births such words never come to pass, for them.

Yes, that pastor is a community agitator, and not, a messenger of the ‘book of peace’.
