Unions urged by House Democrat to “get a little bloody” – and they do

Posted by: ST on February 23, 2011 at 6:40 pm

This is a major New Tone/Civility violation that should get round the clock news media saturation, but I won’t hold my breath:

U.S. Rep. Michael Capuano expressed regret Wednesday for his choice of words at a Tuesday rally to support Wisconsin workers, after national and local Republicans pounced on him for “over-the-top and inflammatory rhetoric.”

“Congressman Mike Capuano must have lost the memo from President Obama and Democratic leaders who were demanding more civility in our political discourse and a toning down of incendiary rhetoric after the massacre in Tucson on January 8,” the Massachusetts Republican Party wrote in a Wednesday statement. “Yesterday, at a rally on Beacon Hill, Capuano couldn’t resist the urge to stir up a crowd of union members with a call for blood in the pursuit and protection of their political agenda.”

During the Tuesday rally – a gathering of more than 1,000 union supporters protesting a proposal by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker to diminish the collective bargaining rights of public sector workers in that state – Capuano, speaking in front of the State House, fired up the crowd by saying, “I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an email to get you going. Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary.”

And so they did. Watch the below video of FreedomWorks New Media Director Tabitha Hale getting assaulted by a union thug at a protest in front of FreedomWorks’ HQ in DC today (via MM):

I know Tabitha Hale, and this is especially outrageous because she’s a petite young woman who wouldn’t hurt a flea (she’ll verbally slay liberals while debating them, though!), and there goes the union goon who didn’t appreciate his ignorance and stupidity being caught on film for all to see putting his hands where they most certainly do not belong.

And check out this verbal, racist assault on a black Tea Party activist in Denverm Colorado by an SEIU thug.

Hey, we’ve seen this all before, haven’t we? The Tea Party gets attacked and roasted on an open media flame by “mainstream” journalists, pundits, and “Republicans” like David Frum for allegedly engaging in and/or inciting “violence” by using “hateful” rhetoric – when the reality is that nearly ALL of the hateful rhetoric and violence that has come from the last two years plus of ObamaCare townhalls, Tea Party rallies, and union protests have come from the fanatical left — all with virtually no media condemnation, nor outrage. And even in the case of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the attempt on her life, the left and the media rushed to condemn “violent Tea Party rhetoric” and Sarah Palin’s target map, in spite of the facts that quickly emerged in the days following the Tucson shootings/murders that would lead any sensible person to conclude that Jared Loughner was an isolated nutcase with fringe left wing leanings.

But why let the facts get in the way of a good ol’ fashioned anti-conservative rant? It’s obvious: The goal is to paint conservatives as so “far out” that their ideas aren’t worth considering in the course of public debate. The last refuge of the loser in a debate is to personally attack the opponent rather than the argument, because if you can convince enough people via faulty “evidence” that someone is close to being a lunatic, they’re less likely to listen to that person.

Saul Alinsky may be dead, but his legacy lives on today in the forms of liberal labor unions … and community organizers, led by our Community Organizer in Chief Barack Obama. I hate to say it, but I fear this battle will become even bloodier as the “Culture of Gimme” isn’t going to let go of what’s yours without a fight – and not just of the verbal variety.

Gird your loins.

    The difference, ST, is that violence by the left is justified by their own. Just read people like Krugman, whose only beef with the left is that it isn’t far enough beyond left field. And according to him and his cohorts in the Left/Lame Stream Media, that is justification enough to physically attack anyone to the right of, say, Stalin.

    When talking of “civil discourse” it is just like any other ground rules the left pretends to live by: OK for thee, but not for me.

  2. Moira says:

    It’s outrageous…but not surprising, sadly. Just another example of the hypocrisy of the “civility-loving” Left. What’s worse is that they always get a free pass from their allies in the media. How much hypocrisy is enough? Waiting on the lamestream media to do their professional duty and cover this stuff… :-w

    This hypocrisy has run its course just like the race card and I’m done with it. I just wish this had been me as opposed to Ms. Hale. One would be seeing a woman, me send this knuckle dragger to the emergency room after two strikes. I was at the wrong place at the wrong time with this one but that I’m sure will change. I never thought I’d need these skills outside of competition but this seems not the case. So be it. Someone somewhere out there has no clue and we’ll just leave it at that.

    Wow–how history throws curveballs! Someone at another web site said the unions are acting like French aristocracy before 1789. How accurate.

  5. PATH says:

    The Massachusetts Democratic representative who said it’s okay to throw coffee cups and that we should be in the streets sheding blood should be terminated, dismissed, let go IMMEDIATELY. If it were possible, he should also be fined but I don’t believe that that is in the constitution. It does, however, say that we can terminate those who don’t support the Constitution – I believe someone said it’s the 14th Admenment.
