Union Goons

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 […]

Unions Attempt to Embrace Democracy, by Preventing Vote

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 […]

Union Thug Alert: Refuse to Talk to Media, Walmart Black Friday Protest Failure

In the latest example of attempted union thuggery and fail, union organizers attempted to stage protests in front of Walmarts in the busiest shopping day of the year.  For starters, it appears that protests were rather sparse.  Twitchy has the following… The Twitchy post has a great deal more information, so feel free to go check it out. For the second part, here is a video featuring the outcome at the Landover, Maryland WalMart.  Apparently, the union bosses shipped in about five buses worth of rent-a-mob to the scene.  Here are some quick points… 1.  The bosses had to ship […]

Romney Recommends the Small Business Owners Warn Employees of Obama Second Term: Liberals Upset

What happens when Mitt Romney recommends that business owners talk to their employees about the consequences of a second Obama term?  Upset liberals! Here is the “leaked” video… And, here is commentary from Working in These Times… In the June call, Romney went on to reassure his audience that it is perfectly legal for them to talk to their employees about how to vote: Nothing illegal about you talking to your employees about what you believe is best for the business, because I think that will figure into their election decision, their voting decision and of course doing that with your family and […]

Obama Isn’t Working: Political Ad Displays Union Thugs, and the President That Supports Them

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.

Manhattan Infidel Presents: The Dogmatic Constitution of the Democratic Party


Many of my readers have asked me for more information on our political parties. And with the Presidential election a year away I am more than happy to give that information. After all, I want my readers to make an informed choice based on principle and not, like I do, vote for the candidate with the hottest daughter. And so, in the spirit of our Republic, I now present the Dogmatic Constitution of the Democratic Party: Preamble What was from the beginning, what we have heard what we have seen with our eyes, what we looked upon and touched with […]

Great Moments in Civil Discourse: Union Thug Threatens TV News Crew

union thug

It has crossed my mind that union thugs would eventually get a tad bit conscious of cameras.  After all, they have been exposed engaging in their special brand of “democracy” so many times, that too many people are figuring out what the thugs are all about. We saw some of that in Wisconsin, where goons tried to cover cameras, and attack those using them.  Here is the latest example, from those hostage taking Longshoreman in Washington state… WARNING:  EXTREMELY FOUL LANGUAGE AHEAD!  Is this what “democracy” looks like?  Why yes, yes it is.  In fact, the only way that it would […]

Even More Verizon Strike Quick Hits: Flinging Poo is Out, Alleged Internal Union Memo Leaked

union thug

Well, the Verizon Strike just keeps plugging along.  Or should that be, thugging along? Flinging Poo is apparently not appropriate: And we’re so glad that it actually had to be said… According to the Toms River News, NJ Supreme Court Justice Marybeth Rogers ordered that there should be no vandalism, violence, harassment, obstruction, intimidating, threatening, blocking, or trespassing. Rogers also set restriction on picketing, allowing no more than six picketers at the entrance to any Verizon owned property at any one time. Picketers were also advise that no more than two picketers may picket a private residence of a Verizon […]

Great Moments in Civil Discourse: Unions Call Gov. Christie "Hitler"

To introduce the latest “Great Moment in Civil Discourse,” I think a history lesson is in order. From the inception of the Tea Parties, Lyndon LaRouche supporters started showing up with signs like this… The MSM went bonkers for this, citing that the Tea Parties were RAAAAACIST! They also neglected to mention that Larouche is a DEMOCRAT.  But, as always, the MSM can’t let the truth get in the way of the narrative, can they? Of course, being the propaganda tools that they are, they neglected to report in signs like this… In fact, they denied their very existence!   […]

Tea Party in Wisconsin: It Ought to be Interesting

I believe it is the Chinese curse that reads, “may you live in interesting times.”  Well, we’re certainly cursed.  And perhaps no more so than in Madison, Wisconsin, where the Tea Party will be holding a rally featuring Sarah Palin. It was announced yesterday that former Alaskan Governor and John McCain running mate Sarah Palin will be keynote speaker at the Annual Madison Tax Payer Tea Party Rally. The rally is set to begin at noon on the capitol lawn and will include James T. Harris as emcee, the Rockstar of Radio: Vicki McKenna, John Fund of the Wall Street Journal, Tony Katz of Pajamma Media, and […]

Useful Idiot of the Month: March 2011

Well folks, the nomination process is done.  And now, it is time to vote for the Useful Idiot of the Month. Here are your candidates for this symbol of disdain: Barak Hussein Obama: The messiah spendulus maximus, the ditherer in chief, takes sides with who the heck knows who, the empty suit.  Clarification:  He dithers only AFTER golfing, partying, and making his brackets.  Priorities, you know. Anthony Weiner: He gives Oscar Mayer a bad name. Organized Labor: For hanging out with the Marxists, beating people up, threatening businesses, death threats, vandalism, and general thuggery. Stephen Lerner: The lefty who proposes […]

Breaking News: Union Thugs Threaten College Students, Steal Cell Phone

The union thugs are just that…thugs.  They cannot overcome their nature.  Their history is filled with violence.  It is so part of their “culture” that they are programmed to attack anyone who opposes them.  We have already posted multiple videos of violent attacks perpetrated by union goons.  I said before that that was only the beginning, and as usual, there is more… Gateway Pundit has more coverage… Amanda, who is 5? 1? told me today that the guy who took her phone (the same guy in the video) was over 6 foot and 200 pounds. Real classy, leftists. Steve from […]

Fraud and Dirty Tricks: The Democrats Are Trying to Steal the Massachusetts Miracle

As I discussed in my Sunday post, it appears that the Democrats are up to some of their typical dirty tricks.  First up, a “community organizer” is caught on video handing out blank absentee ballots.  Problem is the deadline for absentee ballots was this past Friday.  Here is the video from Michelle Malkin. Election Journal, the website that exposed the New Black Panther Party thugs’ voter intimidation tactics in Philadelphia in November 2008, is on the ground in Massachusetts today. They’ve just posted video of a woman in Lawrence, MA, carrying around blank absentee ballots in Spanish today. She explains […]

Profiles in Useful Idiocy: The SEIU

Since we are in the last few days prior to the close of the voting for Useful Idiot of the Year, I thought we might take a look at some of the candidates.  So here is a profile, in video, of the SEIU. Just imagine what they’ll do to people if “Card Check”  passes! Welcome to Obama’s Amerika! Welcome to Obama’s Amerika part II.  This is what happens when you disagree with the POTUS. Does the SEIU have powerful allies? And finally, my own take on Organized Crime…oops, I mean labor.  Or is there a difference?

New Poll, New Useful Idiots

Well, given his outspoken support for single payer, his defense of Fannie and Freddie over the years, and his overall “Barny Frankness,” it was only a matter of time before Barney was added to our infamous list of useful idiots. Our other new useful idiot is a union, or as Vinny the Ice Pick would say, “Respectable Union Organizers, yeah, respectable, that’s it!”  The name, the SEIU.  When they aren’t beating down African Americans and calling them the “N” word, they can be found slugging people filming them beating down African American Conservatives.  Great job guys, you helped us more […]
