LIBERALS ATTACK LIBERTARIANS IN FRONT OF MICHIGAN STATE CAPITOL OVER RIGHT TO WORK

BREAKING OUT OF LANSING!!! FIRST BLOWS IN AMERICA'S CIVIL WAR?

Union thugs crash down libertarian tent for AFP; tent had kids inside; free market activists punched in the face

From Eric Dondero:

And so it begins...

The Republican-controlled Michigan House passed the Senate's right-to-work legislation early this morning on a party line vote. Union members vowed late yesterday "there will be blood."

During the vote, an angry mob of SEIU and Teamster Union members stormed an information tent for the libertarian Americans For Prosperity group, an organization formed and funded by 1980 Libertarian Party vice-presidential candidate David Koch (photo - right).

Reports are just coming in... Libertarian comedian and web video reporter (close friend of our own Stacy McCain) Steven Crowder was punched in the face, and lost a tooth. Other reports, children of AFP members were inside the tent when it was brought down forcibly by the union thugs.

On the video you can hear yells of "take it down," and "die you mother fuckers!"

UPDATE!! Reports coming over that Crowder and at least one other AFP supporter were punched repeatedly in the face.

UPDATE!! Just released video interview with MI AFP Director: "There were people in the tent... they [union thugs] took it down... they got their knives out..."
BREAKING! BREAKING!! BREAKING!!! 2ND LIBERTARIAN TENT BROUGHT DOWN BY UNION THUGS

New video just released minutes ago...

Newsbusters got a hold of the video of libertarian activist and friend of this website Steven Crowder getting repeatedly punched in the face by a union thug. Also, another union protester screams in his face, "Fuck you, get the fuck out of my face... get the fuck out of my face..."

Another union protester is heard saying towards the end, "I'll kill [unintelligible] a mother fucker... I killed twenty mother fuckers..."

At the end of the video, Crowder is again attacked by yet a third union thug who pulls his neck back while his back is turned.

UPDATE!! Steven Crowder on Tea Party/libertarian Dana Loesch's radio show this afternoon, out of St. Louis:
"They literally would have killed me where I stood if I defended myself."
Loesch confirms statement by one union protester:
"I'll kill the motherf*cker with a gun!"
UPDATE! Michelle Malkin has video of a union thug throwing an object at a State Trooper attempting to restrain the crowd.

BREAKING!!! LIBERTARIAN REPUBLICAN QUOTED IN DETROIT FP ON CAPITOL RIOT

Scott Hagerstrom is the former chief of staff for libertarian Republican state representative Leon Drolet (Macomb County). Leon and Scott are both old friends of mine going back to the 1990s. Scott is a Ron Paul supporter and has worked with now Congressman Justin Amash in various campaigns.

From the Detroit Free Press, just minutes ago... "3 arrested as anger grows among protesters; pepper spray used outside Capitol":
Scott Hagerstrom, Michigan director for Americans for Prosperity, said later, “The passage of Right-to-Work is a win/win for Michigan. Not only is this legislation critical to Michigan’s economic recovery, it is a victory for workers who for too long, have been forced to join and financially support a labor union.”
Headline at RedState:
Union Thugs Shout “I’ll Kill a Mother F***** With a Gun!” While Assaulting Opponents
Tea Party's Liberty News Network Eric Odom, "Steven Crowder Is Beaten And Assaulted By Union Goon":
Welcome to Obama’s America. Remember, just yesterday Obama was joining up with these goons in opposition of the majority of Michigan residents. These thugs are on his team.

Eric Odom is our Managing Director, a tea party activist and self-described libertarian-minded political consultant. [Former Executive Comm. member, Libertarian Party of Illinois]

A couple of warning shots from a .40 would have prevented this.

One, you never fire warning shots, ever. Two, I prefer the .45.

You guys decided to set up a Libertarian tent during a pro-union rally? Did you think you were going to significantly impact the mood of the crowd with your presence?

Let me guess. You're using the same logical processes to convince Americans that you should be governing them, based on the strength of your ideas.

If you tried to sell tie-die t-shirts outside a hockey game, what do you think would happen? Would attempting to sell tie-die t-shirts to NHL fans convince anyone you should be elected because of your really great ideas about how to run a government?

electromag, I'm not sure that was the case. I could be wrong, but from what I gather, that tent had been up all week long in front of the capitol to promote the right-to-work location.

And even so, even if you say that it was just set up this morning, does that mean that the union thugs own all of the capitol grounds? That opposing groups are not allowed to disseminate counter pamphlets? That's pretty goddamned Nazi if you ask me.

Can you imagine if conservatives and libertarians held protests at a state capitol, and barred liberals from attending to observe or to counter protest? It'd be all over fucking CNN, MSNBC, nightly news, front page of Yahoo News.

Eric Dondero said...

We're no longer trying to convince anyone that we "need to be elected." That's where you make your mistake. It's over. The Democrats have the voter fraud thing down pat. And pussy-ass Republicans are too polite to match them on that. So, we are always going to lose elections from here on out.

The best we can do now is throw some crinks in the armor. Muck things up.

That's what Republicans need to do from here on out. Slow down the fast train towards socialism and totalitarianism, under Obama and his fellow Nazis.

Eric Dondero said...

Oh, excuse me, that should read, "Nazis with smiley faces." Which is still NAZI.

The Right Guy said...

One, to the asshole that calls himself JC and also masquerades as Eric: All your posts will be and have been deleted. This will continue until you get the message an leave. Two, the problem with libertarianism in regards to rational thought: Politics and religion are about beliefs. Injecting rationality doesn't sway people. It never has. That's why it's easier to lie to people and get away with it than point out the lie and prove it. People believe the narratives they believe. Trying to convince them otherwise through logic is futile.

As far as right to work, people should be able to make contracts as they desire or not to. That goes for employers or employees. If employees want to unionize, it should be a super majority, but even then, baring existing contracts, an employer should be able to fire every one of them if he so chooses. That said, sometimes it makes sense to have a union as Mr Knapp has made a persuasive argument in that case, one in which I agree, but again, all parties have to agree. It's not a suicide pact or a firing squad.

The problem I have with unions is two fold: The historical and current coerciveness and violence of unions and the idea that dies can be used to support political candidates I wouldn't.

Eric Dondero said...

Holy Shit!!! New video out, director of AFP says union thugs had "knives."

Whoa. That changes everything. That's assault charges coming on all these fuckers. Major assault charges.

Eric Dondero said...

Of all the people in the libertarian and conservative worlds to fuck with, they fucked with Steven Crowder. Bad move union assholes. Bad fucking move. Crowder is universally loved on the right. And he's got a very loud mouth, and a very big political platform from which to announce this to the world.

My guess, he'll be on Hannity tonight. He'll be on Greta. He'll be all over the airwaves.

This thing is gonna be huge!!!

You are a fraud. You don't use your real name, you use the name of two people you aren't. You will be deleted. Freedom doesn't absolve one of consequence.

Eric Dondero said...

Holy Shit Jim!!! This thing is huge. This may be the biggest story of the year.

Dana Loesch just confirmed one of the union thugs yelled he had a gun.

Fuck it dude. I may just hop on the Amtrak and head to Michigan to help defend my libertarian and conservative buddies.

Fuck it! This is War!!!!!!!!

The Right Guy said...

Defend them with what?

This is not a government run blog, so we can set standards. Anyone that says they are JC or Eric Dondero and they are not, is a fraud and misrepresents themselves and forfeits any free speech here.

Actually I am quite white and you are still a fraud. Charge your profile or use your real name in posts.

As far as using Eric's name, that is being dealt with.

Google will tell you soon enough. As far as I go, my name is on articles I publish here, so people do know who I am.

And you aren't Jesus Christ either.

To you fools who still say it doesn't matter which party wins elections...

Behold.

You're either with these vermin or you are a part of the resistance against their tyranny. There is no middle.

Chuck said...

"Whoa. That changes everything. That's assault charges coming on all these fuckers. Major assault charges."

Brought by whom? There was a conscious decision made to allow these red eyed apes to do what they did.

Mr. Mcgranor said...

I am a paleoconservative; not a 'libertarian'. I was fired from two jobs when i was younger, for not joining the union. Since then i used to work for temporary services on occasion, for myself, or not at all. I was the only one of the few that found such a requirement of joining the union in order to work -- to be odd. At the 'temps' there are a bunch of individuals that do not work hard--because they are not getting paid much--at least not enough to them in order to work better. I found that many were resentful of my anti-Union, self-management views. So much that my co-workers actually complained that i was working too hard, or was 'bossy'. I now will work for cash--no paperwork-- at 6 dollars an hour general labor. Any takers?

Chuck:
They were given agency. I like that word. The press give the lord Obama agency to do whatever he likes. he could walk out on stage for a white house press conference in a trench coat with a chihuahua mounted on his dick and the press would applaud how nice he looked that day.

The Right Guy said...

Wesley:
if you want to further your education in such areas, try working for the government.

Eric Dondero said...

Wesley, we have some fixer-up stuff needing to be done around the house. Can you get to the Houston area?

Chuck said...

Agency. I like that word too. I was born with it.

The Right Guy said...

I am glad someone was.

Chuck said...

The mob owns your government now. They own your police. They own your FBI. They own your Fire Department. They control your military. They own your town square.

What to do? Join them?

Not I.

Make them rue the day they were born.

Eric Dondero said...

Wow, just watched Crowder on Fox Hannity. He was great. I'm proud to say he's a libertarian, and to be in the same rightwing movement as Steven. He is a hero.

Eric Dondero said...

This RTW Michigan deal is the BIGGEST VICTORY FOR REPUBLICANS OF 2012. This thing is huge.

Yes, it most certainly is a sad year for liberty. No argument there. We've digressed further down the path of totalitarianism with Obama's reelection. Michigan is the only bright spot.

Michigan went to king hussein obama. Michigan aint on our side yet.

The Right Guy said...

The only way Michigan would be on our side is if Detroit literally vanished.
