Michigan Union Violence Update: Thugs use Racial Slurs While Destroying Local Business


When you leave the left to their own devices, they’ll most often show you their true thoughts and intentions.  This could not be more true recently in Michigan, where it was seen that union thugs displayed the violence and intelligence that has given them their “thug” designation   Of course, racism has deep roots in both the Democratic party, as well as unions, so it isn’t a surprise that racial slurs flew when a black businessman dared provide a service to Americans for Prosperity.

Stacey McCain has the background…

Lee Stranahan returned my phone call today. He was in Lansing, Michigan, to cover this week’s union goonfest for, and he told me the story of what happened to Clint Tarver.

Clint is a beloved local figure, his hot dog stand across from the Michigan state capitol being a sort of institution, a landmark. “This is not a guy who’s about politics,” Lee explained. “He’s about hot dogs.”

Americans for Prosperity hired Clint to serve hot dogs at their tent on the capitol grounds, where AFP officials were presenting the pro-freedom side of the right-to-work argument. And when the union goons decided to assault the AFP tent, Clint became a target.

Slurs At Hot Dog Vendor While
Trashing His Business

Good Lord. Of course, they have no sense of shame, but are they also completely lacking a sense of irony? I mean, the Left has spent nearly four years building their “Tea Party is racist” meme, and the AFL-CIO brutes — who were nearly all white, as Stranahan reports and video verifies — decide they’ll just waste all that liberal media propaganda in order to terrorize a guy whose only “crime” is serving hot dogs?

Legal Insurrection has more…

But unless you read conservative blogs and websites, you have not heard that the union protesters shouted racial slurs at the man, including the N-word.

Lee Stranahan at has an interview with the man in which he details what happened.  You can jump ahead to the 3:42 mark to hear about the racial slurs.

Then, Clint Tarver gave a press conference.  However, I doubt anyone from the MSM bothered to attend.

So, this isn’t going to get covered, being against the narrative and all.  So, racism and violence can be on public display, but our impartial and balanced media will never cover it.

Remember kids, we live in a post-reality world.

  • Are you sure these weren’t Tea Party people? I thought they were the violent racists. Oh yeah, they mustn’t have been with the Tea Party or the MSM would have covered it.
