As reported here at Conservative Hideout previously, the Obama administration is steeped in what can be described as Chicago Thug Political Tactics. Unfortunately, the liberal policies of FDR and LBJ gave vast amounts of money to the political leaders in Chicago to consolidate their choke hold on the city, and therefore, the entire state. “The New Deal of the 1930s and the Great Society of the 1960s gave the Democratic Party access to new funds and programs for housing, slum clearance, urban renewal, and education, through which to dispense patronage and maintain control of the city.” Since Obama cut his […]
Greta Van Susteren, a cable television personality since 1991, has spent her 14 year TV career building her reputation as a hard hitting, unbiased arbiter of the truth. She started working for CNN in 1991 as a legal analyst. She came into prominence during the OJ Simpson trial and after 11 years at CNN, she went to FOX News. Greta is known for asking hard questions, but being respectful in the process. She garners respect from not only her colleagues, but also the folks that she has interviewed. That is why it’s no surprise that Van Susteren is pulling no […]
As the saying here at the CH 2.0 goes, Unions: so great, that people have to be forced to join. And, if you want the freedom to choose if you belong to a union or not, goons show up to threaten you! Freedom Works has more… One eyewitness sent me an account of what happened, along with video. This eyewitness has requested anonymity, fearing reprisals from the unions. Freedom “Ruins Everything,” Unions Protest Three words strike fear into the hearts of union leaders: “Right to Work.” At the mere mention of the phrase, unions in lockstep intimidate, harass, and bully […]
It’s going to be familiar refrain, if the gay rights crowd has their way… Christians need not apply. As I see it, there is a pattern of attack used by gay rights groups in response to the very existence of a Christian business. 1. The gay rights crowd sends someone to that business with a request that will cause the business owner to violate their beliefs. 2. Since the Christian business owner actually has a core morality to guide him/her, they will refuse the the request. 3. The gay rights crowd then begins a typical leftist campaign of terror against […]
This blog has long been a place to look at union violence. From the Verizon strike, to the gooning up of Wisconsin, Unions have cast a never ending reign of terror over the US for far too long. Victims have suffered beatings, stabbings, shootings, vandalism, threats, intimidation, and the like. Here are some informational videos… Is it just me, or did that video seem like a mafia movie? A tragic story. Unions: So Great, That People Have to be Forced to Join! Or Else! So, on this day, please remember those victims of union violence.
It seems that Colorado Democrats are resorting to their time tested tactics…bullying and threats, to silence dissent. The Democrats in Colorado not only denied many a voice at hearings, but they threatened the salaries of the Sheriffs! Gateway Pundit has the audio… So, you better just go along with losing your freedom, or they’ll find a way to punish you. In all of this, the hypocrisy abounds. If a Republican did anything close to dismissing the story or claims of a rape victim, there would be an outrage. If elected Republicans threatened the salaries of other elected officials for opposing […]
Last year on the campaign trail, Obama let his slip show when he said that if you owned a small business, you didn’t build that. With absolutely zero experience in the private sector, our president has no idea what it means to risk your own, hard earned money, time and good name to start a business. Being steeped in the politics of Marx, Obama actually loathes folks that have made it on their own, with no help or thanks from the federal government. His education in Alinsky’s tactics, the MSM’s blind devotion and a dumbed-down electorate have all come together […]
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, […]
As the unions fight to keep forced union membership in Michigan, I thought it might be a good idea to re-visit a story we did in early 2011, about how the SEIU got the then Governor of Michigan, to make parents of disabled children members. Of course, the SEIU got to take dues from them, in exchange for…nothing! In other words, the SEIU has gotten to take millions of dollars from people that care for their disabled children. Because unions are so super great, that people have to be forced to join them. Now, let’s flashback to a more current […]
If you recall, the unions love the chant, “this is what democracy looks like.” But they seem to not understand what democracy is, as they seem to try very hard to stop actual votes from being taken. We saw that in Wisconsin, and now, in Michigan. The Blaze has more… Police used pepper spray Thursday to subdue protesters trying to rush the Michigan state Senate after Gov. Rick Snyder and other Republican leaders announced they would press for quick approval of right-to-work legislation limiting union powers. “When several of the individuals rushed the troopers, they used chemical munitions to disperse […]
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 […]
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 […]
Union Membership Down Under Scott Walker’s Watch: Union Bosses Vow Vengeance UPDATE: 39% of Union Members Plan on Voting for Walker
What’s happened in response to the reforms championed by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker? Apparently, a lot less union members! Gateway Pundit has the details… FOX News reported: Public-employee unions in Wisconsin have experienced a dramatic drop in membership — by more than half for the second-biggest union — since a law championed by Republican Gov. Scott Walker sharply curtailed their ability to bargain over wages and working conditions. Now with Mr. Walker facing a recall vote Tuesday, voters will decide whether his policies in the centrist state should continue — or whether they have gone too far. The election could mark a pivot […]
Great Moments in Civil Discourse: Union Thug Smashes Nikki Haley Pinata UPDATED: Governor Haley Responds
Union thugs just never change. When they aren’t engaging in actual violence, they apparently practices. Michelle Malkin has the most recent example… The head of the South Carolina chapter of the AFL-CIO, Donna DeWitt, thought it would be fun to take a baseball bat to GOP Gov. Nikki Haley’s face on a pinata. (H/T Melissa Clouthier.) No, really. Just watch it and see how other Big Labor goons shrieked “Hit her again! Whack her again!” Click on the pic: Of course, the AFL-CIO wants the video taken down… The national AFL-CIO wants the video taken down: A video posted online that shows a former […]
I’ve always joked the the union bosses are a lot like the mafia, except that the mafia has better ethics. For another story that proves that, consider this, from the Romney Campaign. Really, it’s legalized extortion- nothing more than a protection racket. But, it is completely legal, and supported by our president.
Recently, there have been reports of people using the identity of Conservative bloggers, and attempting to ruin their credibility. Zilla has her experience here… Please be aware that leftists have taken to committing identity theft to impersonate me in comments sections of blogs and are using a fraudulent email that looks similar to my public email address to make it look as if I am saying horrible offensive things in an attempt to destroy my reputation, apparently because I did well in a recent contest for political bloggers, they have been doing this to the winner of the contest, The Lonely Conservative, […]
Workforce Fairness has started a video series chronicling union violence. It isn’t new, and is surely doesn’t show signs of going away. So, it is instructive to take yet another look at the violence and mayhem that is oranized labor. Here is their first video… Hopefully, there will be more videos. The more people that see them, the better. It has always been my theory that unions were able to get away with their thuggery because no one would cover it. Now, the whole world is seeing them for what they really are-bullies and thugs. H/T: Redstate
We’ve covered, several times, one of the favorite techniques of the regressives-find out who has contributed to a cause or candidate that they don’t like, and personally harass them. We’ve chronicled how activists will show up at people’s homes, businesses, attempt to get them fired from their jobs, and even threaten their lives. The objective is simple and upfront-use the Alinsky Method to thoroughly intimidate the opposition, and silence dissent. Apparently, the Obama administration is no different, and Michelle Malkin, at Newsbusters has the details… This is B.O.’s M.O. His bully brigade did the same to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its donors during the […]
#Occupy and Union Thugs Plans to Disrupt CPAC: Intimidation, Vandalism, and Violence to be Recorded?
Isn’t it interesting that the movement that purports to be all about free speech and democracy tends to limit the free speech of others? Well, it seems that #Occupy, and specifically, Occupy DC, plan to disrupt CPAC. The most influential Conservative gathering in the US, CPAC attracts all of the big names in the Conservative world. Presidential candidates, pundits, media, bloggers, and the like will descend on DC this week. And, the Occupods will be there to greet them. Here is more from the Washington Examiner… Here is their write-up: On February 9th through February 11th, a who’s who of dastardly politicians will be […]
Ever wonder what constitutes the thought processes of a union organizer? Take a look at the following video, posted at RedState by Labor Union Report… Where would one begin on refuting this? It is pretty amazing. She doesn’t discuss union violence, or that people are forced to join unions. She doesn’t discuss the violence, the rapes, the vandalism, and the open calls for Communist revolution at OWS. She does do a great job in painting things as all “touchy- feely,” that is, until you remember that “touchy-feely” to a union member means the feeling you get when they are beating you down […]
As I have been saying, the Occupod movement (occupy wall street, and so on), is an opportunity to show the American people what the left really is. We’ve seen the open calls for communism, revolution, “getting rid” of the Jews, and so on. The evidence is so insurmountable, that they really are not able to refute it at all. As the Occupod movement continues to unfold, their brethren are getting rather excited. Maybe it’s because they think that it’s their time. Maybe they think that they only have until January 2013, because the economy will start to get better at that point, […]
Occupy Wall Street: That's a Nice Restaurant you Have Here, be a Shame if Something Were to Happen to it
I would think that its a sign of union involvement when the Occupy Wall Street crowd starts using the same mafia-like tactics, like shaking down local businesses, like the Union Street Cafe… We’ve seen this before, haven’t we? Remember the union thugs back in Wisconsin? Charlie Sykes, of AM 620, WTMJ, is reporting that local businesses in Wisconsin are being threatened by labor unions. Apparently, to make the threats go away, the businesses had to sign a petition condemning Governor Walker. Here is a screencap, via Michelle Malkin… Yes, we’ve seen this before. It’s thug tactics-no better than a mafia “protection” racket.
