BREAKING VIDEO: MI Union Thugs Greet Right-To-Work Law With Thuggery And Cupcakes, But Mostly Thuggery

It seems that the Americans for Prosperity tent was a hotbed of raaaaacism, and the 1% were using it as a base for #WarOnWomen attacks. So I guess you can sympathize with the need for ‘honest’, State-fearing Union Goons to protect the turf on which the tent sat, and the power that the Union had accumulated through years of graft.

Elections have consequences, but only when they further Holy Progress. Otherwise, elections seem to have side-effects, mostly thuggish. Help me understand this in the comments.

Update: Liberty News Network has Steven Crowder reaching for the cupcakes, and getting thugged.

Also at RedState.

Update II: the mighty Dana Loesch interviewed Crowder here.

Update III: more at Jackie Wellfonder.

Update IV: Cue the Orwellian crapflooders:

Wait, so we’re to believe, after Kenneth Gladney, that AFP destroyed its own property? That Crowder assaulted himself? Really? The Unions are the good guys, and AFP is just engaging in a publicity stunt? Lord have mercy on these perfidous ones.

Update V: much more at Legal Insurrection.

Update VI: White House spokesman goes Full Postmodern Clown:

White House spokesman Jay Carney declined to condemn the increasing violence and threats by union members in Michigan, merely telling reporters Tuesday that “the president believes in debate that’s civil.”
When asked by a reporter about a claim by Michigan state Democrat that “there will be blood” should Republicans pass a union-choice law in Michigan, Carney professed ignorance and then downplayed the comment.
“I haven’t see those comments, and I’m not sure they mean what someone interprets them to mean,” he said.

I guess if Barack Obama had had a son, he wouldn’t have looked like Steven Crowder. Carney, you are a disgusting piece of work. Lord bless your heart, after He replaces that lump in your chest.

Update VII:

Update VIII: via Tony Katz & WatchDogWire:
That should help dispel the notion that this was some kind of AFP-staged affair.

Update IX: linked at The Camp of the Saints:

This is exactly the kind of behavior the Left wants to see. Ever since Leftism came into being in the mid-18th Century, they have believed a necessary first step in bringing about Revolution is to sow Chaos in all areas of the society. They want the populace to break into tribes of competing grievance groups, ready to. To achieve this, the Left needs many groups from various fields it can count on to do it’s dirty work — bureaucrats, elected officials, academics, etc. These minions of the Masterminds lay the ground work by sabotaging all of the institutions of the Society from within and without, working to pervert and, thus weaken, the existing Culture.
At some point, however, the Leftist Masterminds need to move to the next phase of the march to Revolution: violence. We have entered the phase in the last few years in The United States Of America. Barack Hussein Obama and his comrades have encouraged and nurtured and unleashed forces designed to tear this country apart.

Yep. Read the whole thing.

Update XI: linked at the Daley Gator.

Update XII: linked at American Power and The Political Hat.
