Just Like the Tea Party, Eh? Union Thugs Assault Steven Crowder as He is Sucker Punched at Right To Work Rally
More from the compassionate and peace loving LEFT … Peaceful Protest?
So there is no double standard in America, eh? Democrat Michigan State Rep. said that “there would be blood” and the union thugs at yesterday’s Right to Work rally in East Lansing, MI did not disappoint. We all that that the Left was pro-choice. But that is only for the murder of the unborn, when it comes to whether a person has the right to choose whether they want to become a member of a union, those are fighting words, literally. Steven Crowder, a Fox News contributor, was attacked and punched in the face several times by a union thug at a pro-union rally in Michigan. This is how unions deal with folks who dare have an opposing point of view. Is it any wonder why a “right to work” law needed to be passed.
“I was sucker-punched four times on camera, without retaliation, choked, and the AFP tent is torn to the ground with women and children inside of it.” (Steven Crowder)
Hmm, where is President Barack Obama condemning the violence? The silence from the White House regarding this disgusting union thuggery is deafening.
Michigan Governor Rick Snyder signed the “Right to Work” law into legislation limiting the rights of unions in the state to force individuals to join or pay union dues. The Governor and the House passed the bills amid the boos of protesters. Imagine, just imagine if the Tea Party ever acted like this? They would be arrested, carted off by police and be the headline and top story of ever print and TV media. Oh that’s right, even though they are constantly called unruly and racists, the tea Party has never acted like this.
UPDATE I: Newsbusters reports further on the Crowder Assault and AFP Tent Torn Down with woman and children inside.
UPDATE II: The Gateway Pundit has the identity of the union thug involved in this unprovoked assault.
Seven-time Grammy award winner Alanis Morissette is going forward with her concert in Israel and is defying the Muslim boycott and death threats. She is scheduled to give a concert in Tel Aviv on Monday, December 3, for the first time since she performed in Israel in 2000. Morissette will not back down to the pressure bullying and threats. As stated at Legal Insurrection, it appears to be “courage week” in Canada as last week Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird provided strong support for Israel in the UN and unlike Stevie Wonder, Morissette went forward with her concert.
The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, however, is urging her to cancel at the last minute, due to the recent Gaza conflict and ongoing political situation.
“We would find it especially disturbing should you choose to play in Israel given its recent onslaught on Gaza,” the campaign group said in an open message to the vocal artist. “Palestinian civil society groups are calling on artists to shun Tel Aviv in the same way that South African activists called on artists to boycott Sun City.”
“We hope that you will not be persuaded by the argument that music builds bridges and can bring smiles to people’s faces, thus hopefully spreading a message of peace,” they added. “Any message of peace you hope to bring will be drowned by Israel’s well-oiled publicity that will use you to rebrand itself as a normal state that promotes music and culture.”
Absolutely Despicable: Wonkette Editor Jack Stuef … Reprehensible Birthday Greeting to Sarah Palin’s Son Trig
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE LEFT? … YOU ACTUALLY THINK THE IS FUNNY OR APPROPRIATE! This is how the LEFT honors a baby’s birthday with special needs.
File this one under, UNREAL. Those on the LEFT have lost their souls. Sorry, but there is no justification or rational behind attacking a child with Down Syndrome. NONE!!! This is pathetic and sick, even for Wonkette. Sorry, I will never link to such a most; however, will do so to Mediaite.com as they report on this hateful and insensitive story. Who knew that jokes about Down Syndrome, incest, child rape, and fetal alcohol syndrome was humor. But when the LEFT attacks Sarah Palin, all things are perfectly ok. Imagine if those at Wonkette made similar comments about Obama’s daughters.
Political humor website Wonkette has long been trending toward nihilistic snark for snark’s sake, but Jack Stuef’s column “honoring” Trig Palin’s birthday is about the most irredeemably vile, unfunny thing I’ve ever seen. As if jokes about Trig’s Down Syndrome aren’t bad enough on their own, Stuef goes the extra mile to pen kneeslappers about incest, child rape, and fetal alcohol syndrome. I don’t want to reproduce too much of it here, but this quote is fairly representative:
News Busters states it best … “What has become of today’s liberalism that makes it acceptable to attack the mentally handicapped if they or their parents are conservatives?” Seriously folks, you mean the LEFT who claim to champion the underdog and the down trodden find it perfectly ok to attack a child with Downs as long as their parents do not agree with their political agenda. ARE YOU THAT SICK!
So much for “FREE SPEECH” and tolerance in San Francisco…
San Francisco libs are always quick to preach of tolerance and the hateful, war mongering ways of the right and the Tea Party. They are the party of love all, serve all, tolerance. That is except when some one does not agree with them.
Hat Tip: Weasil Zippers - This sign would have been praised in SF & the MSM
What a shock, the attack took place in SF. A man was attacked in Francisco’s North Panhandle neighborhood who was holding an anti-Obama sign. According to reports, A man and woman approached the victim, tore the sign and shook the table and kicked the man. The sign said,“Impeach Obama” with a picture of the president with a Hitler mustache. The two attackers fled the scene and have not been located.
Oh the “TOLERANT LEFT”. As if the Left has never had signs made of GWB or any Republican with the same display? We need to look no further than the recent protests in Wisconsin to find signs of GOP Governor Walker depicted as Hitler. I guess we must have missed the news that they were attacked for expressing their freedom of speech.
Initial police accounts had indicated that the man had a sign supporting Obama, but witnesses later said it was an anti-Obama sign with a Hitler mustache drawn over the president’s face.
The attack happened around 11:30 a.m. Monday in the 1200 block of Fell Street, where the victim, a 29-year-old Daly City man, had set up his table, said Capt. Denis O’Leary of the SFPD’s Park Station.
A man and woman approached the victim, tore the sign and shook the table, causing the political literature to fall to the ground.
The attackers also kicked the man in the hand, O’Leary said.
Where is the MSM clammering over this violation of this man’s First Amendment Rights? Where is the ACLU, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton? Where are the cries of “No Justice, No Peace”? I guess we should not hold our breath.
More Political Correctness: CNN Apologizes for Guest Using “CrossHairs” … What Would they Ever Say about George Carlin and his Baseball-Football Skit?
In the immortal words of George Carlin … WTF!!!
How pathetic has political correctness become? CNN actually apologized for a guest using the word “cross-hairs”. Imagine that, that evil, hate monger used the term, “in the cross-hairs”. That gets an apology, but the incorrect and purposely false reporting that Jared Loughner, the alleged Tucson tragedy gunman who killed six was a right-wing Tea Party member gets nothing. This is the message that the MSM has learned from the Tucson tragedy? One would think there would be a greater look into mental health and the ability to “target” mentally disturbed people sooner capable of violence.
Would CNN take add $’s from Target?
With the PC hysteria, the media might want to start with themselves. So metaphors of CNN’s choice are now deemed bad. Just curious, in a CNN board room have they ever stated they would target a certain demographic or would CNN ever accept commercial ad space from TARGET?
From Real Clear Politics:
HCNN’s John King: “Before we go to break, I want to make a quick point. We were having a discussion about the Chicago mayoral race. My friend Andy Shaw used the term ‘in the crosshairs’ in talking about the candidates. We’re trying, we’re trying to get away from that language. Andy is a good friend, he’s covered politics for a long time, but we’re trying to get away from that kind of language.”
Classic Values is not so many words tells CNN and John King where to stick is apologizing for free speech.
What would CNN ever do with comedian George Carlin and his skit on Baseball vs. Football? The comic classic would be watered down to mere dribble if CNN and the rest of the pathetic MSM had their PC way. Would they be apologizing ffor the following, “Football is played on a gridiron, in a stadium, sometimes called Soldier Field or War Memorial Stadium“. Oh no, Carlin said war, we must apologize. Then there is this horrible comic line that has caused so many madmen to take up arms, “Football is rigidly timed, and it will end even if we’ve got to go to sudden death.”So does this mean that in all sports cast, the announcers will no longer be able to use such abusive language like “sudden death”?
George Carlin, Baseball vs. Football
The object in football is to march down field and penetrate enemy territory,
and get into the end zone; in baseball, the object is to go home! “I’m going home!”
And, in football, they have the clip, the hit, the block, the tackle, the blitz, the bomb, the offense and the defense;
in baseball, they have.. the sacrifice.
It is unbelievable that freedom of speech and the political correctness police have come to this. What a sad state of affairs. Will CNN print a manual of acceptable words that can be used on their air without having to sit in the corner in time out if used? Just curious, how many shooting sprees was George Carlin responsible for?
Obama State Department Tells Columbia University Students, DO NOT Discuss WikiLeaks On Facebook, Twitter OR ELSE!
And the LEFT used to call GWB’s policies Nazi-like, check out the “Hope & Change” from the Obama State Department …
The Obama State Department warned Columbia University students not to discuss WikiLeaksOn Facebook, Twitter or post links to WikiLeaks and the classified 250,000 documents. If they do, it could endanger their future job prospects. So from the Obama government comes the following, do not even discuss WikiLeaks content or else? Talk about a blatant government threat and a violation of the First Amendment.
Talking about WikiLeaks on Facebook or Twitter could endanger your job prospects, a State Department official warned students at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs this week.
An email from SIPA’s Office of Career Services went out Tuesday afternoon with a caution from the official, an alumnus of the school. Students who will be applying for jobs in the federal government could jeopardize their prospects by posting links to WikiLeaks online, or even by discussing the leaked documents on social networking sites, the official was quoted as saying.
“[The alumnus] recommends that you DO NOT post links to these documents nor make comments on social media sites such as Facebook or through Twitter,” the Office of Career Services advised students. “Engaging in these activities would call into question your ability to deal with confidential information, which is part of most positions with the federal government.”
The food police have now dubbed certain restaurants items … FOOD PORN. Hmm, so if the SCOTUS deems porn Freedom of Speech, then so is a persons right to eat their food porn.
It’s “food porn.” That’s what the Center for Science in the Public Interest dubbed the 1,030-calorie, deep-fried Lasagna Fritta appetizer at the Olive Garden.
The restaurant, known for its “bottomless” salad and breadsticks, made the consumer group’s 2010 “Xtreme Eating Awards”.
Other restaurants you frequent also made the list: P.F. Chang’s, Five Guys, The Cheesecake Factory, California Pizza Kitchen, Outback, Chevy’s and Bob Evans.
Please, make em stop!
Wonder Why MSM Hates Fox News … 81% Polled Get Their Midterm Election News from Cable Channels Like Fox News
It is the continued death of the old media, so went the dinosaurs, so goes the old and tired MSM.
It is the MSM’s and LEFT’s worst nightmare … this can’t be good news for the liberal slanted MSM nor the Democrat party, more people are turning to the 24 hour cable news networks for the election news and out of the cable news networks, Fox News is the most watched. The trend is only going to continue away from the old MSM do to a liberal slant and an obvious agenda. This does not bode well for Democrats in 2010, 2012 and thereafter …
More people are getting their news about the upcoming election from cable television than any other source, and from Fox News more than any other cable channel, according to a POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground Poll released Monday.
The poll found that 81 percent of those polled get their news about the midterm elections from cable channels, like Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, or their websites, compared with 71 percent from national network news channels, such as ABC, NBC or CBS, and their websites.
Among cable news channels, Fox was the clear winner, with 42 percent of respondents saying it is their main source, compared with 30 percent who cited CNN and 12 percent who rely on MSNBC.
FOX NEWS wins the cable wars hands down in election news coverage for the American people. Think Obama and Democrats are beginning to sweat?
When you use cable TV news channels to get news about the election, would you say you are mainly getting information from CNN, Fox News, MSNBC or some other cable news channel or website?
Mainly Fox News………………………………………….42%
Other cable news channel/website…………………….9%
Full polling results here. Check out page 9 of the polling data, what a shock, the people have no idea who Ed Schultz, Keith Olbermann or Rachel Maddow are. Maybe because MSNBC has no viewership.
One more bit of data from the poll regarding Barack Obama’s re-election. Only 38% think he deserves reelection.
Now, thinking again about Barack Obama –
20. Do you think President Obama has performed his job as President well enough to deserve re-election, will you consider voting for someone else, or do you think you will vote to replace Barack Obama?
Will consider voting for someone else……………………………..13%
Will vote to replace Barack Obama…………………………………44%
Jeremy Stoppel, a Northglenn High School student in Colorado was told by school security to stop flying the US flags on his truck. He was told to do so because the high school focuses on diversity and she doesn’t want anyone to feel uncomfortable. WTF. Maybe some one should tell the moron security guard that the United States flag represents diversity and the greatest melting pot ever known.
So the delusional concept of making others feel uncomfortable trumps the First Amendment and Freedom of Speech? Who is making who feel uncomfortable?
Could some one please tell me what country we live in again and how it can make any one uncomfortable seeing the America flag flying? What’s next, we are not allowed to fly the American flag on Flag Day? Just curious does this high school have an American flag atop their flag pole? What is wrong with people who actually think that the Red, White and Blue flag of the United States of America would make people feel uncomfortable. Those that actually do, might want to think about living some place else.
