Union Thugs Ban Republican Rep. Sean Duffy From Their Labor Day Parade (Video)

Union bigwigs said Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) would not be allowed in THEIR Wausau Labor Day Parade this year

No Republicans would be allowed at all in the parade.
WAOW reported:

Newsline 9 has learned Rep. Sean Duffy has been told he is not allowed in this year’s Labor Day parade in Wausau.

Duffy’s office received that news earlier this week from parade organizers. His office was also told no Republicans will be allowed this year.

The parade is sponsored by the Marathon County Labor Council. A Wausau city spokeswoman said the city does not contribute any money to the parade.

Duffy’s chief of staff, Brandon Moody, released a statement to Newsline 9:

“Having walked in this parade in past years, Congressman Duffy was hoping that for a moment, we could set our differences aside and simply have some fun in a family-friendly event.”

    progressive/ liberalism truly is a mental disorder

    Are these the same violent thugs who claim Tea Party members are terrorists?

  • KOW

    They should organize their own parade/picnic so Conservatives could go to it, or just ask Conservatives to not support the parade.

    Set up a center to hand out school supplies to needy families and ask Conservatives to support it by bring by supplies and to help hand out the supplies. Maybe even winter jackets.

    Point is, screw the Labor. We need to end Labor day.

  • KOW

    Maybe show up for the “Labor” day parade with negative signs about Labor Unions.

  • succotash

    Only thugs need apply for the THUG DAY PARADE!

  • Coasta

    Show up anyway Duffy. Wear Red, White and Blue and clap and cheer and smile. How is anybody going to differentiate?

  • tommy mc donnell

    its labor day not union day. union workers only make up 15% of the workers in america. this notion that union leaders push that they and only they constitute labor in america is just simply not true. if there are other workers that want the congressman there he should take part in the parade.

    Labor Day, yes a union day I suppose; but not sharing the day with elected Republican leaders show childish behavior. Just wave it off and set up booth in the park and be ready to take questions and the heat from those out of work, you can always make a point about not being allowed to march in the parade. Just a thought.

  • MaryW

    Where have I heard that before?

    Oh, yeah. No Irish need apply.
    No blacks allowed.
    etc, etc.

    Progressives, all for tolerance and diversity. Unless of course you don’t walk in lock-step with them.

  • Estragon

    Well, look on the bright side: if a falling meteor strikes the parade, it will only take out union thugs now.

  • Conservative Ken

    Bout time to have a counter rally in Wausau or neighboring township.
    Big Labor is dying and it’s going to beg you for a job.

  • Craig

    Yeah, this is really bad. B ut what about New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg‘s decision to not allow first responders to attend this year’s memorial ceremony at Ground Zero? What are they afraid of? That the First responders will tell the truth and reveal the scam?

  • Dr_Tumbleweed

    No Republicans, eh?
    Time for Marathon County to do some house cleaning in their Labor Council.
    All thugs must go.

  • Ginger

    Well barry soetoro is going to be there front seat and remember he has crosses covered up! He does not want to sit there and hear pople talking about their Christian faith. I wish some one could right in front of him lay out a prayer rug and say. “Now face meca you muslim fraud!”

  • arnonerik

    It’s just as well. Someone might think being in the parade is an endorsement of the Socialist goons that run the unions.

  • MrGoodWench

    Don’t the marxist thugs celebrate their own labor day by marching in May Day parades ?
    This Labor Day is an American celebration .

  • Matt

    At what point has Representative Duffy supported labor.

    He just wants this as a campaign event.

    He can throw a BBQ at his house and invite the media.

  • JadedByPolitics

    Because they are using political affiliation as a weapon, the city should pull the permit for the parade, I think what they are doing is illegal and if not should be.

  • gary gulrud

    Duffy hasn’t even been conservative. But I suppose a district that returned Obey for the prior 40 years isn’t exactly a TEA Mecca.

  • SturJen

    Go read the comments on that site. I swear they must be handing out Kommie Kool Aid in the mail in Wausau.

    Good to know that those workers who have not been sucking the public union teat mean nothing to these people.
