Around 200 far left SEIU protesters were bused into the Dunkin Donuts parking lot in Carlisle, Pennsylvania for a protest against Mitt Romney on Friday. The screaming protesters stormed the franchise – terrifying customers and workers – and posted signs about the 99% on the windows.
The union protesters were in town attending a leadership conference.

Penn Live reported, via Lonely Conservative:

About 200 union protesters descended on the parking lot of the Dunkin’ Donuts on High Street in Carlisle just before 12:30 p.m. today to call for increasing the federal minimum wage and to attack GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

The members of Service Employees International Union picked Dunkin’ Donuts because the chain is partially owned by Bain Capital, the private equity firm that Romney used to head.

Some of the protesters wearing Romney masks engaged in a pseudo counter-protest, based on what the union said is Romney’s opposition to increasing the federal minimum wage.

Kim Klinger, a nurse from Wilkes-Barre, said the SEIU members were from all over Pennsylvania and were attending a state-wide leadership conference at the Hotel Carlisle Embers Convention Center in Middlesex Twp. Five buses brought the union members from the conference to the Dunkin’ Donuts.

A consortium of global private equity firms consisting of Bain Capital Partners LLC, The Carlyle Group and Thomas H. Lee Partners LP completed the acquisition of Dunkin’ Brands Inc. from Pernod Ricard SA for $2.425 billion in cash in 2006.

  1. Morons are everywhere!

  2. “Five buses brought the union members from the conference to the Dunkin’ Donuts.”

    There is another Dunkin Donuts directly across the street from the hotel where these degenerates were staying. You could throw a rock and hit it – not that I want to give them any ideas. It’s curious that they loaded up the buses and drove into Carlisle for their idiotic disruption. Just a shame I didn’t hear about it in time to go get photos.

  3. SEIU DEMANDS that I pay their Government extorted pensions and salaries before I feed my own kids. And they call ME greedy? They shout that THEY have 1st call on my hard earned wages, not me. Seiu is simply a criminal theft ring and should be prosecuted under the RICCO laws.

  4. DD is a huge success in the northeast. Good luck dismantling it commies!

  5. If I was the owner of this franchise I would sue the SEIU for damages & lost revenue, maybe if people start hitting them in the wallet they will change think twice before attacking a small business. American need to fight back against thuggery.

  6. Who would EVER listen to a pushy, arrogant, shouting mob? Do these people actually think they are advancing their cause? I feel sorry for any bystander that comes in contact with this pack of fools. They only damage themselves. Everyone can plainly see they are wolves in sheep’s clothing.

  7. Just like the Tea Party…

    Send in the goons.

  8. The SEIU thugs could not have had a permit to storm a privately owned business and were breaking the law. Any government employee, federal, state or local, involved in such illegal activities should be fired.

  9. some leadership!!!

  10. #10:

    I agree, and there are good pictures of people’s faces at the Penn Live link. It’s pretty pitiful seeing 55 year old guys in business suits trying to “fight the power” and “stick it to the Man”. What a joke. You are the Man, man.

  11. @Finncrisp
    Tea Party goons? That’s a laugh, and you’re full of it!

  12. I suppose this sort of thing is just peachy with our ‘justice’ dept?

  13. Ahh, the ‘tolerant’ face of facism, from the ‘purple people beaters’

  14. Let me get this straight.

    1. Mitt Romney was CEO of Bain Capital for several years, leaving the company in February of 1999 to manage the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics.

    2. Romney has not been associated with Bain capital since 1999 – more than a full decade.

    3. Obama currently has several “bundlers” (mega-donors) who are employees of Bain Capital.

    4. Bain Capital purchased Dunkin Brands in 2006 – seven full years after Romney left Bain.

    Question: Why were these goons wearing Romney masks?

  15. Gee. This is an election year. This is no time for fooling around.

    Isn’t it time for another Haymarket Square?

    It’s for union solidarity.

  16. OT

    During Bammy’s speechifyin’ declaring that those who built their businesses really didn’t, he made mention that the government built the internet so “that all companies could make money off the internet.” Who really developed the internet? Not government. As Gordon Crovitz points out in his article in the WSJ.

    From the article:

    “It’s an urban legend that the government launched the Internet. The myth is that the Pentagon created the internet to keep its communications lines up even in a nuclear strike.”

    “If the government didn’t invent the internet, who did? Vinton Cerf developed the TCP/IP protocol, the Internet’s backbone, and Tim Berners-Lee gets credit for hyperlinks.

    But full credit goes to the company where Mr. Taylor worked after leaving ARPA:
    Xerox. It was at the Xerox PARC labs in Silicon Valley in the 1970’s that the Ethernet was developed to link different computer networks…”

  17. Tea Party goons? That’s a laugh, and you’re full of it!

    Finn was being sarcastic, Nomo. The Tea Party is routinely (falsely) accused of engaging in the very same activities that pusstards like the SEIU, OWS, etc, actually do.

  18. I think the SEIU has lost their way. They’re protesting minimum wage and Romney’s ties to Bain, so it makes sense to disrupt business at a doughnut shop.

    They have no purpose. They’re just going through the motions of doing what they’re known for doing, but it’s irrelevant and ineffective given the public’s attitude toward Obama and his anti-business policies.
