Who wouldn’t prefer to support the workers? Unfortunately, if they are going to follow the violent leadership who are egging them on, they can’t win me and a lot of other Americans over. It is also hard to find a legitimate reason why having the liberty to join or not join a union is wrong in a free country.
Union members say it is not fair for only some to pay for the benefits their union has earned so their answer to that is forced unionism. That’s the kind of approach countries like Russia use.
When the left was raging about the alleged violence by the Tea Party, they couldn’t find a single video to prove it. That isn’t the case here.
All this violence is about giving people the right to join or not join a union because it will slow their flow of money which they use to buy the Democratic Party. Ninety-one percent of the funds that unions use for political influence is given to Democrats.
Currently, 72% of the new jobs are in right-to-work states because of union rules and demands which make it too difficult for companies to operate.
When I was a teen working in a King Kullen Supermarket, it was an open shop union. I chose not to join. I was part-time, made very little, and got nothing for my dues. Two thugs from the Brooklyn headquarters paid me a visit to “coax” me into joining. I then refused because I was being bullied. The manager begged me to join because it would cause him serious problems and I would be in danger. I did join for his sake but I wasn’t happy.
Unions don’t want workers to have a choice. How democratic!
The major media outlets are reporting the riots and violence as melees and protests. They ignored the violence against Americans for Prosperity, the police and Steven Crowder, which is very different from the way they reported the Tea Party protests.
The pro-union Democrat legislator Douglas Geiss took to the state House floor – and Twitter – to promise violence.
“We are going to undo 100 years of labor relations,” said Geiss. “And there will be blood. We will relive the Battle of the Overpass.”
Jimmy Hoffa, president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, said Tuesday he expects Michigan unions and lawmakers to break out into “civil war” after the state’s legislature passed right-to-work bills that would weaken unions’ power.[He’s just like ole Dad]
“This is just the first round of a battle that’s going to divide this state. We’re going to have a civil war,” Hoffa said on CNN’s “Newsroom.” The Republican-controlled state House passed two bills that had already been approved by the GOP-dominated state Senate. Gov. Rick Snyder, also a Republican, is poised to sign the bill, which would allow workers at union-represented employers to forgo paying dues. [National Journal]
There are many more videos out there in which community leaders are calling for violence.
