Union Thugs Alert: Goons Threaten to Rape Children of Managers

Union thugs are at it again. Correct that! Union thugs are still at it.  The first sentence implies that union thugs ever stop being union thugs. As the title points out, Union thugs have again been found to threatening the children of their targets.  Included in the latest example is threats to rape and kill children.  You know, just peaceful union activism, right? Via Red State: In the latest development of a more than year-long labor dispute in Vancouver, the National Labor Relations Board has accused picketers of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) Local 4 of a multitude […]

10 Union Goons Indcited on Extortion, Arson, and Assualt Charges in Philadelphia

You’ve seen the post image, I’ve used it for years.  This story explains why I use it.  It is one story of many-union goons caught violating the law.  However, what this makes this story a rarity is that the goons were caught and indicted… 10 In Union ‘Goon Squads’ Indicted For Violence, Arson In Philadelphia – The Foundry Ten members of a Philadelphia ironworkers union are charged with conspiring to commit extortion, arson, destruction of property, and assault to force construction contractors to hire union workers, according to the FBI. . . The FBI this week said the members of […]

This is How the Left Works: The Stalking and Harassing of Scott Walker and His Family

I have devoted a great deal of time to covering the tactics of the left.  Whether it’s been Union goons, Occupy Wall Street, of even #FreeKate, they all try to use thug tactics to threaten and attack their adversaries.  Here are some of the tactics being used against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker when the unions were trying to maintain their death grip on public workers… The letter was addressed to Walker’s wife, Tonette. It read: Has Wisconsin ever had a governor assassinated? Scotts heading that way. Or maybe one of your sons getting killed would hurt him more. I want […]

#FreeKate Update: Hunt Family and Supporters Escalate Threats Against Truth Tellers

Have I mentioned that I’d really like to give the #FreeKate stuff a break?  However, they keep doing and saying things that I need to document here.  Why, might you ask?  I love making connections between stories, and the tactics used  by the subjects of those stories.  #FreeKate is an incredible opportunity to take a look at these tactics, and display them to the world.  When people know and can identify the tactics, they can be countered. So, here is the latest. A couple weeks ago, my pastor and I were discussing a recent sermon.  The gist was that people […]

Classic Conservative Hideout: This is the Tolerance of the Left: Intimidation, Harassment, and Threats (Brett Kimberlin and #FreeKate Edition)

I republish this post, with some edits, every year.  I think it’s wise to review leftist tactics, as well as honor those that have endured much in the cause of human freedom.  There are people our own country that put their safety and livelihoods on the line to promote the teachings of Jesus Christ, as well as the concepts of freedom laid out by our own Founding Fathers. Given that people are placed in physical and legal jeopardy by convicted bombers, or by those that want to legalize sex between adults and minors, it’s wise to expose and discuss the […]

More ‘Inner Workings’ of the #FreeKate Facebook Page: Control the Message and Punishing Dissent

Please note that most of this post was written prior to the FreeKate Facebook page “hacking.”  I held off on publishing this until I sent information to the IRC Sheriff’s Office.  The post has been edited to reflect new information.   Also note that I have redacted the names of the former Freekate admins at the request of several of them, as they fear for retaliation at the hands of the Hunt family and their supporters.  This is another post showing how #FreeKate efforts shows similarity to liberal movements.-Matt One thing that liberals seem to love is to control the […]

Will “Klan Laws” Protect Officials That Stand up for Laws?

A familiar tactic for regressives is to show up by the bus load, and intimidate someone.  It tells the target, “we know who you are, we know where you live, and if you don’t do what we say, we’ll terrorize your family.”  In other words, it’s thuggery in the Alinsky style.  Here is the latest example, via Freedom Outpost… The Blaze reports that Kansas Secretary of State, Kris Kobach (R) had hundreds of protestors march on his home over the weekend, targeting him because of work in combating illegal immigration. He likened this type of protest to “KKK-type of intimidation” […]

#FreeKate Update: The “Tolerant Left” at Work

I’ve spent the last four years, among other things, pointing out the utter hypocrisy of the political and cultural left.  Chief among my targets is the “Tolerant Left.”  You see, according to our would be regressive overlords, they are the epitome of “tolerance.”  Just ask them, and they’ll tell you; tolerance just flows through their veins, and shoots out of their eyes like  death rays of love.  Until, that is, some one disagrees with them.  Or, worse yet, is a Christian.  Then, the “Tolerant Left” shows their true nature.  I have shown many examples of the tolerance of the “Tolerant […]

IRS Acting as if it were Behind the Iron Curtain: Armed Security Intimidates Staffers

In a scene taken from some old movie about life behind the Iron Curtain, ABC reporters were allegedly tailed by armed security in an apparent effort to dissuade IRS employeess from speaking out about what they know about the Tea Party scandal.  Dan Riehl has more… Wow! This reads as though the IRS office in Cincinnati was moved somewhere behind the Iron Curtain when no one was looking! Welcome to Cincinnati – Ground zero of the exploding IRS scandal. Things started brewing earlier this month when Internal Revenue Service officials in Washington first admitted conservative groups were targeted for extra […]

A Tale of Two Stories: Pro-Gay Radio Host Abuses Christians, Gay Rights Crowd Ignores Muslims KILLING Gays

I personally find it curious that while the gay rights crowd loves going after  Christians, they leave others off the hook.    Here is a list of stories compiled here over the last few years… Great Moments in Civil Discourse: Gays Insult, Make Death Threats Against a 14 Year-old Sarah Crank Chick-fil-A Quick Hits: TV News Team Refuses to Cover Appreciation Day, Media Harasses During Protests, Protests are Fail, but Manage Vandalism Chik-Fil-A Being Punished for Being Christian, Just as Predicted Tolerant Left Vandalizes Church in the Name of Tolerance Great Moments in Civil Discourse: Best not Believe in the […]

The Psychology of Gun Control

Last week, I saw a picture that shows the psychology of gun control perfectly.  Here’s the pic… The real psychology of gun control is far more subtle than the public debate would imply.  It is also far more powerful.  The state always wants order, and power.  While order is desirable, the state’s means of enforcing it is shown by the man with the whip.  It is based on fear, threats, and injustice.  It is not just, it is violence.  As for the people?  Most of them bowed.   But when one stood up, others were emboldened to stand as well, […]

Student Sues School for Bullying: Was Abused and Threatened After Wearing Romney/Ryan Shirt to Class

For all of the talk about bullying, Conservatives get left out of the mix.  For the proof, take a look at this video, via Gateway Pundit… See, bullying is bad, unless you belong to the following “categories”… 1.  Conservatives 2.  Christians 3.  Jews 4.  Tea Party members 5.  NRA members You see, “anti-bullying measures” are meant to protect liberals from dissent (yes, they might protect some poor kids from general abuse-at least while someone is actually looking, but that is another story).  Anyone who disagrees with the regressive agenda are still subject to discrimination, abuse, death threats, violence, and the […]

Union Thug to Governor Rick Snyder of Michigan, “We’ll be at your daughter’s soccer game”

My theme for the week here, so it seems, is that if you leave leftists to their own devices long enough, that they’ll show their true nature.  That happened again in Michigan, where a speaker at a public event said (reading between the lines), “that’s a nice daughter you have there. It’d be a shame if something would happen to her.” Here is the video… Remember kids, this is how the left operates.  They want what they want, and if anyone stands in their way, they will be subjected to threats, attacks, intimidation, and harassment.  They aren’t above threatening children, […]

MIchigan Union Violence Update: Media Ignores it, Leftists Craft Conspriacy Theories

Michigan, Unions, Violence, Goons, Americans for Prosperity, Tent, Attack, Assualt, Intimidation, MSM, Bias, Coverage The post reality world means that it really makes no difference what really happens, and even if you have the most iron-clad evidence, it’s all about who controls the information.  So, with that in mind, let’s take a look at what is happening… Media Ignores Union Violence: As usual, the MSM is refusing to cover union violence.  That is not new, and we shouldn’t be surprised, but it still should be covered, and so it shall.  Newsbusters has a storyto that end… Networks Refuse to Cover Union […]

Michigan: Union Thugs Attack, Steven Crowder of PJ Media Assaulted

Today, in Michigan, the world got yet another lesson in what unions are all about.  We’ve shown multiple examples of union violence in the past.  What the goons failed to calculate this time is that they picked on and assaulted a relatively well known Conservative in Steven Crowder, of PJ Media.  Here is a video of part of the assault… Ironically, while they are tearing down a tent set up by Conservatives, one is overheard complaining, and cursing about being called thugs…. And, we see the new tradition of attacking people with cameras… After all, they can’t have people recording […]

Obama Voters Publicly Apologize!

When Obama voters apologize they really ought to consider their safety.  But, before I get to that, here is he story… A full-page Mitt Romney campaign ad in today’s Cedar Rapids Gazette takes the form of an open letter from 13 Iowans who say they voted for President Barack Obama in 2008 but regret their choice and won’t do so again in 2012. The letter is phrased as an apology, and lays out a case for why Romney, the Republican nominee is a better choice this time around. “Mitt Romney will deliver the real recovery that President Obama has failed to bring, […]

Democrat Operatives Engaging in Stalking and Intimidation?

We’ve know for some time that a favorite tactic of democrats is to stalk the homes of their opponents.  The intent is simple, ranging from the typical, “that’s a nice house you have there-be a shame if something were to happen to it,” to the more ominous, thinly veiled, “now people will come to harass your kids.”  Now, it appears that this tactic is being used on a much larger scale.  Politico has more… Politicians recognize they give up a degree of privacy when they run for office. But Democrats are testing the outer limits of that understanding with a practice that raises questions about when […]

Children Heckled for Singing “God Bless the USA”

If you recall, a certain school principal in NY, one Greta Hawkins, got into some hot water for denying children the opportunity to sing Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA” at their graduation.  So, parents organized an event in a local park for the children to sing the song there.  Local leftists did not like that idea…not one bit.  The Daley Gator has more… The protest had been organized by parents at PS 90 in Coney Island. They were outraged after principal Greta Hawkins banned kindergartners from performing the song at their graduation ceremony. Staffers said the principal was worried the patriotic anthem […]

Union Bosses Abandoning Team Obama? AFL-CIO Directing Funds From Obama

It seems that the Union bosses are pulling the plug on team Obama for 2012.  Is it due to the fact that the DNC and Obama threw the unions under the bus in Wisconsin?   The Lid has more… The AFL-CIO has told USA News and World Report  that it’s moving money from political candidates even though its right in the middle of election season. This represents another blow to the Obama campaign which is already way behind its fundraising goals. The labor union says this shift was planned for a long time and has nothing to do with the fact […]

Brett Kimberlin Update: Ali Akbar Targeted

If you recall, Ali Akbar is an activist that runs the National Bloggers Club, an organization that defends bloggers from those who would harass and silence them.  I covered this during Everyone Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day.   The Other McCain has a link to a site devoted to defending bloggers hit with harassing, frivolous legal actions… The National Bloggers Club has been a valuable ally in supporting and defending bloggers targeted by harassment and intimidation. Today is “Everybody Blog Brett Kimberlin Day.” I join with National Bloggers Club president Ali Akbar in sincerely requesting that readers concerned about defending First Amendment rights online visit the club’s special […]

We Have a Winner! The Useful Idiot of the Month for May 2012 is…

The Union bosses!  It seems that spending money like water for well over a year, sending in goons to intimidate businesses, beat up Tea Party members, getting fake doctor notes, indoctrinating children, and generally making a giant mess of the Wisconsin State capitol, definitely qualifies them for useful idiocy.  But, there is the icing on the cake…after all of that, the millions, the goons, the damage to the state capitol, they are still behind the polls mere days before their showdown with Governor Walker! Then, there is the additional irony that the DNC seemed rather hesitant to go all-in with their effort, so, not only did […]

Are You Ready to be SWATted? Who is Sending Police to the Homes of Conservative Bloggers?

I think the entire Conservative Blogoshpere is now familiar with the term, “SWATting.”  It consists of a caller to 911, spoofing the caller ID of a target, and then claiming that there has been a shooting at a target’s house.  The police then respond to the non existent “shooting” as if it had been a real call.  The idea, of course, is to surprise a innocent citizen by a police raid, and if all goes to the plan, the innocent citizen will make a false move and be killed by the police.  The FCC explains how this can happen… Caller ID service, however, is susceptible to […]

New York vs First Amendment: Seeks to Make it Easier for Leftist Goons to Target Critics by Banning Anonymous Speech

From the Federalist Papers, to the Internet today, anonymous political speech has been a mainstay of political discourse in the US.  It is frankly needed, as there is often negative consequences to speaking out against the status quo.  And, in other countries, the results can be somewhat terminal.  Since it is difficult to track down, harrass,  intimidate, beat, or even kill anonymous speakers, the NY State Legislature has decide to ban it.  David Kravets, at Wired, has more… Did you hear the one about the New York state lawmakers who forgot about the First Amendment in the name of combating cyberbullying and “baseless […]

The Other McCain Forced Into Hiding by Convicted Bomber? It’s More Likely Than You Think

Sometimes, blogging takes a dark turn-namely when a blogger encounters someone who does not like being a topic of attention.  Enter then, the strange case of Brett Kimberlin, the convicted terrorist that has not reacted kindly to being under the careful examination of Stacey McCain.  Rather than rehashing the entire  situation, here is a quote from Stacey himself… FROM AN UNDISCLOSED LOCATION Convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin on Monday continued his effort to silence those who write about his criminal past by contacting my wife’s employer, claiming that I was “harassing” him. The resulting security concern required immediate relocation if I was […]

May Day 2012: The Beginning

If you have been a regular reader here, you know that we have been covering leftist violence for several years, and May Day has always been a lowlight.  A communist celebration of intimidation, thuggery, and vandalism.  Here are some examples from 2010… And, just like OWS, there is vandalism and destruction at most every protest, but it is always someone else’s fault. The Blaze also has some more current examples… We’ve all seen violence behavior from the left wing.  That is nothing new, and we’ll continue to see it.  What we have to understand is the why of it.  They know that […]
