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 […]

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 […]

Union Thug Update: Better Not Talk About Right to Work

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 […]

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, […]

Did Union Thugs Destroy a Church?

Apparently, even God isn’t above the reach of union thugs.  Here’s the background.  Quakers (not the Oatmeal folks, the actual religion) needed a new “meeting house” (their place of worship=church).  However, they decided to go with non-union labor.  That’s when things, shall we say, got interesting.  Philly .com,  via Weasel Zippers has more… As agonizing as the process was, the result is a trim little design, faced in traditional Wissahickon schist, that will visibly reflect the ideals Quakers hold dear, from respect for the environment to plain old good neighborliness. And yet, in one crucial way, the $5.8 million project […]

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 […]

Eric Holder Speaks to NAACP Against Voter ID: Media had to Show Picture ID to Enter

In our modern society, picture ID is needed for quite a few things, like driving, for instance.  However, when it interferes with voter fraud (which clearly does not happen–not ever), it’s the most racist thing ever!  However, labor unions must have an exception from this… Apparently, it’s OK when the unions do it.  But what if the NAACP did it themselves?  GateWay Pundit has the answer… Via the Joe Pags Show : *******MEDIA ADVISORY******* ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER TO DELIVER REMARKS TOMORROW TO NAACP NATIONAL CONVENTION WASHINGTON – Attorney General Eric Holder will deliver remarks at the NAACP National Convention during the […]

Richard Trumka Seems Awfully Confused About Freedom

AFL-CIO “Don,” Richard Trumka seems a tad bit confused as to what freedom actually means.  He wrote an op-ed for the huffpo that stretched reality to the breaking point.  Then again, he is a liberal.  Here is a quick excerpt, as well as my usual sarcastic take… Let’s call this right-wing “freedom” catch phrase what it really is: a grossly political strategy to dupe the public, which holds the word “freedom” as something sacred. This Independence Day, I say let’s go back to a truer use of the word “freedom.” Let’s start with President Franklin Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms: freedom of […]

Walker Wins Recall Vote: Let the Denial of Reality Begin

It was over early, and  the race was called for Scott Walker, and the Lt. Governor, Rebecca Kleefisch.  This is one for the history books, and represents a huge win in the constant fight between freedom and the thug tactics used by Walker’s union opponents.  Here are some of my initial thoughts… 1.  The blame game will begin.  With any loss, the Democrats are going to blame someone else, so I would guess that the Koch brothers will be at the top of their list.  Forget that the unions spent $60,000,000.  Forget that they made asses of themselves by protested Special Olympics ceremonies, […]

What Happened to the Occupods and Union Goons? CPAC Not Disrupted (Yet)? UPDATE Attempted- and Failed!


After all of the promises, it seems that the promises to disrupt CPAC were greatly exaggerated.  When encounters with occupods and union members did occur, the protesters themselves seemed far more confused than anyone else.  Then, there were some union goons present, but it appears that they were paid to be there.  Here is some video, courtesy of The Daily Caller… I know that folks that are out of work needs the money, but $60 bucks for a day of protesting? Talk about slave wages? That seems rather “one percentagish” to me. Also, there were some brain dead creatures, commonly referred […]

Wisconsin Union Goons Protest a School for Hosting Governor Walker

union thug

The union shenanigans in Wisconsin haven’t gone away, they’ve simply gone smaller scale.  The goal, however, is the same-to punish Scott Walker and anyone who associates with him.  Again, the regressive playbook is powerful, but paper-thin.  They are using  Alsinky’s rule #8…   8. “Keep the pressure on, with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.” and #13… 13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.  In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the […]

Union Goons Disrupt Special Olympics Event

Imagine that you are a disabled child, and have participated in the Special Olympics.  Also, you’ve been invited to the state capitol, where you will be honored by the governor of your state.  I would imagine that you would be rather excited about that. Now, also imagine that this happened… Let’s just ask ourselves, and everyone else as well, “is this behavior that is consistent with American ideals, or on any level of decency?” Not so, according to the union bosses.  They’re going to get theirs, and they’re going to take it from you.  And if the have to disrupt […]
