Union Thuggery Alive & Well … Assaults Tabatha Hale, FreedomWorks Staffer


It was Democrat law makers that said …  ”Get a little bloody.’ It’s the union way.”

Didn’t Obama and the Democrats call for civility following the Tuscon, AZ shooting? It would appear that union protesters and namely some at CWA,  Communications Workers of America, did not get the memo. A CWA member performed some union thuggery and struck Tabitha Hale, a young 5 ‘ 1” conservative activist/original Tea Party organizer/blogger. Nice, didn’t your mommy teach you not to hit women? Guess not.


Tabatha Hale recounts what happened at RED STATE and much more at Hot Air.

Basically, it’s ridiculous. I’m a 5?1 female in a dress, and he was standing up on a garden wall above me in the courtyard. He hardly felt threatened. I was stunned, because generally protesters are there to, you know, get their message out. They don’t normally shy away from the camera.

Where is the President’s outrage to the actions and lack of civility from the union protesters? Oh, that’s right … they are union folks.

UPDATE I: From the Gateway Pundit, Attacks of young woman & Tea Party Blacks, Torturing Camels and calling opponents “bad Jews” … OH MY!

      No one should condone or resort to physical or violent actions. Presuming this is an accurate depiction (which by all accounts it is), I condemn this action, and any person so involved should face appropriate consequences.

      Although it seems worse due to the physical stature of the involved people, any such act is inappropriate, at a minimum.

      One question I have in this matter, is what might have triggered the physical event. This is not a matter of diverting from my position stated above, but there may be lessons to be learned from understand the full extent of the interactions prior to the violent act. There may be contributing factors that the short clip fails to convey.

      This guy is a jerk. Picking on a 5’1″ woman holding a camera. Notice he didn’t pick on the guy standing next to her doing the talking. WOW! What a piece of work this guy is.

      Organized Parasites are dangerous because they
      carry out crimes of physical intimidation as well
      as striking for extraordinary wages and benefits.
      Obowma is an expert in organizing, well, that’s
      mostly what he has experience doing anyway.
      It is not good to have Organized Parasites fighting
      the taxpayers who are the hosts for ‘Public Service’
      people’s very existence.

      The guy is a wuss.

    6. Scott on February 24th, 2011 12:34 pm

      And there is no lesson to be learned no matter what promoted the violent act. It’s amazing how liberals like Steve try to divert the actual blame to the victim instead of the criminal action.

      She could have called the guy a bald headed co*k sucker and that does NOT give the a right to physically touch her PERIOD.

      Here’s a lesson for you liberals in LIBTARDIA:

      Don’t touch women!

    7. dennisintn on February 24th, 2011 1:49 pm

      the union bully boy looks downright gleeful after the fact. just one more example of how far out of line the unions will go to get their way. they fit in real well with former community organizers and other bad actors who equate might as right.

    8. A Texas Grandfather on February 24th, 2011 2:18 pm

      Cowardly acts by union thugs are nothing new, especially from the CWA. They have been using violence to get their way for a very long time.

      It is too bad that a real man was not standing nearby and take this thug to the woodshed.

      It is very apparent that whatever Barry says, he really means the opposite. So the admination to the union people really meant do your usual stuff.

    9. Steve on February 24th, 2011 4:52 pm


      Are you so wacky you don’t understand “I condemn this action”? I totally agree with you he had no right to touch her or her camera (the video is not conclusive which occurred).

      As a reminder I never said one word about the victim in my comments, much less blame her. What causes people like you to simply ignore what is said and then you feel you have the right to make shit up. Comment like this discredit your viewpoint, as your are willing to lie about stuff.

      You close with a totally absurd admonition trying to blame an entire group of people for one person’s actions. That is known as prejudice, pure and simple. I expect you would have used a racist comment if this man was not white.

      I find the whole comment you made worthless and disgusting.

    10. NGBoston on February 24th, 2011 10:02 pm

      I find the whole comment #6 made to be hysterically funny and valid.


      Steve—-Get your Spongebob Square Pants Boxer Shorts out of the tight knot they seem to be in….it is obviously affecting your current mood disorder. What “shit” did Scott make up?

      Nothing, IMOO.

      This is the shit he made up, because it has no connection to what I said:

      It’s amazing how liberals like Steve try to divert the actual blame to the victim instead of the criminal action.”

      I actually thought I covered it quite well when I said this:

      As a reminder I never said one word about the victim in my comments, much less blame her. What causes people like you to simply ignore what is said and then you feel you have the right to make shit up.

      BTW, you lost me on the “boxers” comment (not that it is likely all that important).

    13. Scott on February 25th, 2011 9:35 am

      Here’s what you said libtard:

      “One question I have in this matter, is what might have triggered the physical event. This is not a matter of diverting from my position stated above, but there may be lessons to be learned from understand the full extent of the interactions prior to the violent act. There may be contributing factors that the short clip fails to convey.”

      Your above comments are the typical liberal pussification attitude. You are trying to talk in circles because you think you are so much more intellectual then the rest of us.

      You are diverting from your statement because the statement I just quoted contradicts what you said no matter how you try to spin it.

      What proceded the attack by the cowards you support no matter what should result in physical contact, of which, you twice now have questioned by saying “the short clip convey” and you even question how much physical contact there actual was…..

      Get a clue dude….

      Come out of your libtardia cloud you live on…

    14. NGBoston on February 25th, 2011 10:42 am

      #12- Steve—-why are you so technical about every little word. Sincerely, you are obviously brilliant and intelligent.

      It’s only my personal opinion, but I do find some of your comments typcial liberal fodder and wayyyy too techinical. Also found many of your points, arguments, rebuttals to be strikingly honest and completely valid.

      Either way–isn’t most of what we go back and forth on in this particular blog based mainly on interpretation? They are viewpoints, thus all open to critiquing.

      Facts are facts. Viewpoints and opinions are exactly that. Some of the topic matter is open to varying interpretation.

      The SpongeBob SquarePants barb was satire. And I do appreciate your sense of humor when you do display one. Try not to take everything so seriously, Steve but I do enjoy reading most of your posts. Intelligence ranks high in my book. Viewpoints or opposing opinions are just that, entertainment.

      Remember the old saying about personal opinions, however……

    15. NGBoston on February 25th, 2011 10:47 am

      P.S. Steve—you have not had the Scared Monkeys curse of death bestowed upon you yet as you do show promise with your obvious understanding, wisdom and intelligence. You appear to be extremely well- read and I would venture a guess highly Educated formally as well. It shows. Keep up the good work as if we always challenge ourselves to question, and become more informed….

      in the end, we know that KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.

      So—I digress, but you have not yet been labeled yet as a complete Moonbat Libtard, so again- there is hope.

      PPS—Yes, we do use labels and sometimes reduce ourselves on here to some hilarious name calling.

      Hey, Steve—not saying you—but if the SHOE FITS.

      Wait until Whackjobs like YoYo Muffin or JohnDao weigh in.

      Talk about frickken LIBTARDS ON CRACK!!!!!!!! Scary, truly because they actually believe all the venom they spew.

      Be Well and have a great Weekend, Steve. Hope we don’t scare you away. Enjoy your presence.

      Even though I know it it pointless explaining anything to you, I’m going to try. I think there is the possibility you can benefit from additional comments, unless you just want to be angry and ignore discernible facts from the short video clip (yes, it really is a short clip) and my actual comments. BTW, I fully respect your right to your own personal opinion, but facts are too stubborn to be subject to such things. I hope discussing facts is not too technical.

      I admit I said what you quoted in this comment. I also said more as I quoted in 9. Furthermore, I actually agreed with you there, to highlight and underscore my beliefs on this incident. I fail to see why these words are not convincing enough for you to simply acknowledge and accept as my fundamental position (opinion).

      I’ll also admit that I’m capable of at least two distinct thoughts on this particular matter, that are not contradictory. As a matter of fact, you’ll have to admit I never used the word nor referred to the “victim” in my prior comments, much less refer to her in any word that represents “blame”. Either you agree with these facts, or you are not being rational in this matter. Your choice.

      By viewing the video, it is clearly the case that there are more people related to this incident than just the victim and the attacker. This is a fact; lets move on. I don’t think anyone can provide a count of how many are involved, so that leaves a gap in understanding the overall incident (guess what, I’m not talking about the victim). More facts.

      Based on these facts, as I said, it is not possible to understand what one or more of these extra people were doing and saying. And just because I would like to know what was happening as far as the victim being there and whatever her actions were that preceded the violence, does not change the undeniable fact that she was the victim. It seems to me that by my trying to understand the entire incident, you feel that I’m trying to blame her. That’s not the case; this was a story with a beginning, middle, and an end. AFAIK, the video only appears to show the end, and is therefore incomplete. If your opinion leads you to believe this is blame, that’s up to you. It’s not my intent, however.

      I never said a word about supporting anyone involved in this incident; so your comments on this are pure fantasy. I just wonder what words you read that allowed you to form such a false understanding that you can then describe as fact. I really find that bizarre. As far as the physical contact; I see his face, and then the screen blurs into multiple colors. It seems as if the lens was obscured by something, but that is conjecture, not fact.

      Are you honestly saying that you see footage that shows “how much physical contact there actual was” or of the attacker touching the women, the camera, or both? I’d be interested in your description of this footage, and the time markers. I know my eyesight is not what it once was when I was younger, but I do believe it can accurately see this video clearly.

      Sorry this got a bit long; I can get defensive when my integrity is challenged, and tend to over explain. Still, I am fully convinced this incident is more complex than some may see it.

    17. Scott on February 25th, 2011 2:23 pm

      I love you NGBoston but I disagree on your assessment of Steve. Anybody can pull or plagarize others comments from the left wing blogs, etc he obviously participates in…

      He never backs any of his statements with actual facts NOR does offer any solutions to what he’s b*tching about.

      Anyhow…I hate liberals of all sizes shapes and colors…PERIOD.

      I can not take their holier than thou attitude because they graduated from NYU or some school like that…..

      Anybody can be “book” smart, but “book” smart does not get your through life…

    18. NGBoston on February 25th, 2011 7:57 pm

      #17- Scott-Duly noted.

      So, in your book—-he does earn the Not-so-Coveted Title of Moonbat Libtard, then?

      So be it. I guess where I come from, I am more liberal on some (repeat SOME) social issues, but definetly more Conservative on many political in so far as how our Government should be run.

      I would agree with your assessment of the damn Holier than Thou adtitude of most bleeding heart libs in general. Also correct when you state that being formally educated or “book smart” does not a genius make. Some of the smartest and most successful American Business Men and Women have actually never even completed Post Graduate studies so you do have a point.

      I don’t also expect any of the hardcore Libs to float out of that mysteriously sad cloud of “libtardia” anytime soon either. Think they have had too much of that damn J.Jones Kool Aide. It’s affect appears to be widespread and lingering but I remain hopeful for the elections next year. My only fear is that will we be faced with very limited choices as we were in 2008. Scary thought.

    19. Steve on February 26th, 2011 12:12 am


      I write every single word I offer in these comments, unless I’m quoting other sources, and I always try to link these.

      If you are unable to find the facts I provide, you are hopeless. BTW, I’m not responsible for finding solutions to problems described on these pages; I really don’t know why you would expect that of me.

      I get it you are unable to respond to the specific points I make in 16 above because you are afraid you will look foolish. How do you think not responding makes you look?

      As far as “book” smart, and getting through life, a reminder; these pages are not life.

    20. Steve on February 26th, 2011 9:10 am



      I appreciate your feedback as there is a thread of common discourse to it. When I get technical, it is likely due to my belief that words matter, and clarity is a means to avoid missed connection, as can happen in political matters.

      I couldn’t agree with you more regarding facts and opinions. I hope I demonstrate factual approaches, mixed with my opinion and conclusions. I also have already spoken on several threads about respecting others right to their opinion. It gets confusing when it seems they claim opinions are factual, I suppose because they are very string opinions. I also disagree when I see facts selectively edited and presented to support an opinion, where the more complete facts, in full context, provide a different meaning (IMO). I can’t say that it does, but it looks to me like this practice borders on dishonesty.

      I fully accept any criticism in responses to what I say. I do, however, not support simplistic name calling as a means to discredit my comments. That is a poor substitute for a real discussion, and has no affect on me or the conservation.

      I know that there is an ever present monitor on internet blogs, such as this. I find the selectivity on valid messages hard to decipher, as so-called “personal attacks on our users” seem to have interesting results. In any case, that is beyond my control. If my message offends the powers that be, I take that as a badge of honor. I suppose some might call it the highest form of disagreement. Its really kinda funny, that with all the harsh language I see, that so many people are really thin-skinned and can’t take it as well as they dish it out.

      I look forward to a continued exchange of ideas.
