New Tone Alert: Union thuggery pays a visit to Longview, WA – and beyond

Posted by: ST on September 8, 2011 at 5:32 pm

I’m sure any minute now the mainstream media, led by MSDNC, will be providing non-stop wall to wall coverage of this extreme ideological display of violence and intimidation:

LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) — Hundreds of Longshoremen stormed the Port of Longview early Thursday, overpowered and held security guards, damaged railroad cars, and dumped grain that is the center of a labor dispute, said Longview Police Chief Jim Duscha.

Six guards were held hostage for a couple of hours after 500 or more Longshoremen broke down gates about 4:30 a.m. and smashed windows in the guard shack, he said.

No one was hurt, and nobody has been arrested. Most of the protesters returned to their union hall after cutting brake lines and spilling grain from car at the EGT terminal, Duscha said.

The International Longshore and Warehouse Union believes it has the right to work at the facility, but the company has hired a contractor that’s staffing a workforce of other union laborers.

Thursday’s violence was first reported by Kelso radio station KLOG.

Police from several agencies in southwest Washington, the Washington State Patrol and Burlington Northern Santa Fe responded to the violence to secure the scene that followed a demonstration Wednesday.

“We’re not surprised,” Duscha said. “A lot of the protesters were telling us this in only the start.”

One sergeant was threatened with baseball bats and retreated, Duscha said. “One officer with hundreds of Longshoremen? He used the better part of discretion.”

Yeah, I’ll say.

Michelle Malkin has lots more details, including video, and information on how this gangsta thug union activity has spread beyond Longview.

But, hey, it’s conservatives who are the “terrorists” and “barbarians“, right? x(

      Sorry to post this here but…. This President is so stupid…. I have never heard such ignorant garbage come out of a mouth of an educated man… well except Joe Biden. – Lorica

      This is only a beginning. Look for more union violence and civil disobedience when it becomes more obvious Resident Zero has a zero chance of reelection. It will become very ugly.

      Madison Wisconsin was a coordinated union test run. They learned how just much they can get away with. The union movement will push harder and harder each and every time in order to “take them out”.

      I am old enough to have seen this trick before. The term thugs is being kind. Unions and their surrogates have no problem with murder. Ask Mr. Hoffa’s father.

      Well, what with vandalism, probably auto theft, and certainly kidnapping (isn’t that a federal crime? Where’s Holder’s take on this?) the unions have been given a green light by this administration to cause any mayhem they wish, all with the obvious help of a silent media.

      What more could Obhammud ask for, as far as re-election help goes? I’m just real sure the LSM won’t be bringing up Gunwalker, Gangwalker or Grenadewalker anytime soon, so his combination “high crimes and misdemeanors” are covered, so he can concentrate on thugging whatever competition he will have in the election.

      certainly kidnapping (isn’t that a federal crime? Where’s Holder’s take on this?)

      Carlos, apparently the union got a waiver from that law too. Like Hoffa said, this is “Obama’s Army”, doing what it does best.

    5. Carlos says:

      Well, GWR, what they do best isn’t compete in the world market, make the best products or support the “average” American worker. No, their overall “expertise” is thuggery and (at least for the union leaders) thievery. Reivers all.

      And you can take that to the bank and draw interest on it.

      When the lapdog union leaders say they want jobs, it goes without saying they want union jobs.

      When the President says he wants jobs, it also goes without saying that what he means is union jobs.

      Which leaves approximately 89% of American workers out in the cold.

      How’s that Hopey-Changey thang workin’ fer y’all now, huh?

      Interesting that it only took the longshoremans union a week to find the bastard son of many mothers that Jimmy Hoffa Jr wanted taken out.
