Latest from Michigan... Union activists blame Koch bros., libertarian activists for tent coming down

It was a "false flag" operation to make union members look bad

From the Teamster's Blog:
another sit-in at the Romney building surrounded by uncertain-looking police officers. We hear they were arrested, or that arrests are imminent. Protests remained peaceful, despite an attempt by the Benedict Arnold Koch brothers-backed Americans for Prosperity to claim union “thugs” tore down their heated tent.

Marcy Wheeler at emptywheel points out that a video showing the tent coming down is another false flag from people linked to the late Andrew Breitbart, a right-wing provocateur:

…witnesses say the Americans for Prosperity people were trying to provoke union members to violence, and witnesses reportedly saw AFP people loosening the ropes on the tents so they would come down.

Nobody has to concoct false flag attacks to make unions look bad. Unions do that all by themselves.

Yes, and the whole election of Obama was a false flag operation to make Americans look bad.
