Feeling The Love

Went through some of the video from the Saturday February 26 rally in Lansing last night before hitting it. I would be lying if I said there were no civil conversations held, but frankly the few that were indeed civil, could not make up for the cat calls, the abusive language, and physical intimidation offered by those whom we disagree with.

For my part, I am convinced most many of the labor union members that go to these rallies are little more than animals. They operate on a feral code of emotional response akin to dogs in a pack. Violent tendencies seem to be their commonality, with no regard to personal property, or the physical well being of their fellow man. As one example, in the video below, my son was using the camera to pan across the crowd, but was identified as being with our small group of tea partiers.

(CAUTION – CONTAINS OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE)

Look at this guy’s face. Just before he reaches out to grab the camera. Pure.. hate?

I have yet to see any tea party activist behave this way. And I am proud to say so.

I expect a follow up to Malkin’s Hate-O-Rama Article with many videos like this.

Hopefully this is as bad as it gets.

    You know how those union guys were talking about the Koch brothers? I still don’t know exactly who they are but I did find this out:

    “So here’s the challenge: Explain to a Wisconsin state worker that they are the ones helping fund the Koch brothers. Then sit back and watch the fun.”

    Jason,
    We were at the 26 February rally, and witnessed your anthropological discussion with the English teacher from Grand Rapids. He later asked us if we were Tea Party members. When we answered in the affirmative, he asked if we knew the history of the Boston Tea Party. He talked over our “wrong” answer with his big voice. He told us he was a history teacher and KNEW the original tea party, IN 1823, 1824 OR 1832(!), (he gave three different dates, all in the 1800’s) was to protest that the tea-importing corporation wasn’t taxed enough. Grand Rapids students and parents beware.

      Yep. Volume is always good when facts don’t cut it.

      Thank you for being there. It was perhaps far more educational than what might be happening in our classrooms?
