TRS columnist Jen Kuznicki was on the ground yesterday in Michigan and got some video of union thugs collapsing the big Americans for Prosperity tent. Here’s her description and video:

One union member can be seen going for the propane tank on the side as another yells, ‘yeah, burn it down!” There are people inside the tent, trying to hold up the large tent stakes, who witness union members come into the tent during the collapse, take our Reagan cardboard cut out (the bastards!) and flip the table of coffee servers over.

As the tent collapses, the crowd cheers as people are still inside, and hurry to circle the tent all around.

As a life long union member I resented my union spending my dues in support of ANY political party. I paid them to represent me ..... not the politicians. Unions DO NOT BELONG in the political arena and members should have a say in where their dues are spent.

What were they doing there in the first place? Being Agent Provocateurs? Rubbing salt in the wound? They wanted to incite violence. I guess you wouldn't be angry if someone lifted your wallet or hacked your bank account eh Cam? Same thing!

I think the real thugs are the craven, lying cretins that rammed this through.

They were there exercising their constitutional rights to support something their government was doing just as the union was there protesting it. This hurts no one at all Roseann and gives the people who are members of those unions and independents or Conservatives or whatever the right to tell the union to go screw themselves or demand that they represent them and stay the hell out of the political arenas. Time to represent the workers and not the dang politicians.

Thanxz Barb! I belong to a website that you can grab those things from! Appreciate it!

The whole point is there is NO NEED FOR VIOLENCE EVER.

It is amazing to see the number of progressives willing to excuse this kind of violence because they disagree with the politics of the victims. I would feel better about the state of our civil society if I could find examples of people on the left who recognize and condemn this kind of thuggery for what it is.

Thugs? Fox? You ahole. The union is trying to protect our rights and wages.

What do you have against a social democracy? You don't know because you don't know anything.
