(Mike Chamberlain/Cranky Hermit) – With all of the talk of the alleged violence nature of the Tea Party and with numerous attempts by media and opportunistic political operatives to link the Tea Party with violence there has been exactly ZERO violence associated with the Tea Party.
Yesterday, union members decided to protest in front of FreedomWorks, a right-of-center organization, because, well, FreedomWorks supports freedom for individuals and less-intrusive, less-expensive government, things like that. Things that at one time I believed all Americans believed in. Apparently, these ideas are quite offensive to some people. So much so that they decided to protest in front of FreedomWorks’s office.
After the FreedomWorks people began talking to the protesters, one of the union thugs participating in the demonstration showed his tolerance and manhood by hitting a girl! The girl, by the way, is Tabitha Hale, whom I consider a friend of mine and is one of the nicest people you could ever meet.
My statement to the thug: If you don’t like people filming you or asking you questions, don’t protest on a public street! Is this the face of the modern union movement? More and more, as private sector unions lose members leaving only the public employee unions, who use political power and influence rather than persuasion to wring more and more out of the taxpayers who are not allowed a seat at the table, it is looking like it.
