Like Clockwork… Business Owner Harassed by Goons After Appearing in anti-Obama Ad

Gee, who could have seen this coming?
Earlier this week the Romney Camp released a new ad criticizing Barack Obama over his recent attack on business owners.
The ad “These Hands” stars New Hampshire business owner Jack Gilchrist.

Now Gilchrist is being harassed by leftist goons.
Liberty News reported this from the The Union Leader:

The New Hampshire businessman who appears in a Mitt Romney television ad accusing President Barack Obama of “demonizing” small business owners has gone to his local police after receiving two “harassing” telephone calls and, he says, hundreds of nasty emails.

“It’s frightening to me,” said Jack Gilchrist of Gilchrist Metal Fabricating of Hudson, who also said Thursday he received hundreds of supportive emails as well.

Gilchrist said that while “there was no specific threat, to me, it’s harassment.”

Capt. Bill Avery of the Hudson Police Department confirmed that an officer took “an investigative report of harassment” from Gilchrist on Wednesday.

“And,” said Avery, “we will investigate.”

At least the mayor didn’t ban his business.

    Shades of Nazi Germany. Political rivals Suddenly feared for their lives at the hands of the Brown-shirts, intimidating and often inflicting violence, to suppress opponents allowing Nazi Party Members to win landslide elections taking over.

    It truly is a Obama world. And it going to become more of one before it gets better.

    We knew this would happen. Next year the IRS will audit all the businesses that appear in Romney’s ads. Mark my words.

    This is what happens when they’ve learned that you’re NOT a “party member”.

    In Nazi Germany, party members wore a party lapel pin in the shape of a swastika on their clothing so that they could recognize one another in public and not get harassed, beaten up, fired from their job, and eventually so they wouldn’t get murdered.

    Pretty soon we too will have to wear party insignia to show that we are a member of the fascist Left to avoid such treatment.

    In fact, I know of several people (myself included) who’ve been openly mistreated at the workplace (and even laid off for trumped up reasons) simply because the management learned that they were NOT members of the Democrat Party but rather evil rightwing nutcases who had to be removed from the workplace just to keep the place a “happy” place to work at. In other words, BECAUSE the Leftists at the workplace would complain about having to work with rightwingers, the management let the righwingers go to restore the workplace “environment”.

    How many of YOU have to hide your party affiliation from neighbors and in the workplace just to spare yourselves mistreatment or risk of getting fired? I’ll bet it’s more widespread than you’d believe. Welcome to 1938!

    As a business owner, who also did not rely on central planners of the statist communist types to “build” it for me, I am in lock-step support of Mr. Gilchrist and his safety.

    These public union police officers better know where their paycheck is coming from, stepup, find these panty-waste commies, arrest them, put them up on public display, and let them face a jury of their peers to receive the sentances they deserve. If not, it is time to seriously consider taking back the country for the better.

    We do not need people living on the government teat, at cost of our earnings. We also do not need public servents who somehow manage to make more money after they retire than they put in, again off our backs.

    This shall come to a head soon.

  • bigkahuna

    Make another ad and point out the harassment. Use it against them just as we use Obama and the medias words against them.

  • JDubya

    Mahdi Al-Dajjal:

    Get a lawyer and sue your miserable employer into the ditch if this is true. You cannot be harassed for your thoughts.

    I want to see the IRS audit and harass all Obama staff and czars next year. EPA, and other heads as well.

    Is there a legal offense, one that looks to convict and imprison any and all officials involved because I’d like to donate….

    You are seeing the end result of the merger between political muslim brotherhood Islam and the fraternal brotherhood of public sector unions….They work well together. They don’t see anything wrong with using violance against non believers. This is how Islam kept its social order for hundreds of years.

    OT but part of Obama’s ECONOMICS!!

    ‘It Worked”: Economic Growth Slows to 1.5 Percent; Recession Fears PICTURE OF WHAT OBAMA CAN DO

    The U.S. economy grew at a sluggish rate of 1.5 percent in the second quarter of 2012–the slowest rate in a year–according to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis:

    Real gross domestic product — the output of goods and services produced by labor and property located in the United States — increased at an annual rate of 1.5 percent in the second quarter of 2012, (that is, from the first quarter to the second quarter), according to the “advance” estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. In the first quarter, real GDP increased 2.0 percent.

    The Bureau emphasized that the second-quarter advance estimate released today is based on source data that are incomplete or subject to further revision by the source agency (see the box on page 3). The “second” estimate for the second quarter, based on more complete data, will be released on August 29, 2012.

    The slow growth, which could indicate a slide back towards recession, was expected by economists, but is bad news for President Barack Obama’s re-election effort. It sets up a fall campaign in which he will be challenged by Republican Mitt Romney on his economic record.

    How sad. And how VERY sad that nobody is even surprised by this. Obama could have easily put a stop to things like this early on but instead, he encouraged it – “they bring a knife, you bring a gun” Wait until it’s the OWS crowd that he and Nancy are so proud of that begins to show up at your office/door or the unions bus in people to your home. Time to take America back people – please, please be sure to vote in November.

    True story:

    Years ago, a house under construction was torched in my uncle’s neighborhood. The owner was building the house himself with several friends.

    The following day, as neighbors, cops, and fire officials looked over the ruins, one of the cops told my uncle, “No big deal. Just the union protecting its turf.”

    Anyone who believes unions are for the workers collectively is delusional. Anyone who believes the cops represent a higher class of union member is insane.

    The cops won’t even attempt to find the suspects in this Gilchrist case if they suspect union members are behind it.

    Preident agitator throws a couple million dollars to Acorn to build up his civilian army of goons.Imigine that,a bunch of paid,professional goons doing what they were paid to do.They are trying to shut down the opposition.Where have I seen such tolerance before? Perhaps, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, Russia…

    If anyone didn’t think that they couldn’t be waking up to living in a Third World basket case of a nation in their lifetime, they better wake the hell up. We’ve become a nation of handouts,not “hand-ups”. Defend the Constitution. Defend your liberties from the government. Most of all, defend yourselves from your fellow Americans.

    hah, they more or less already have..

    [The largest banks are actually bigger than they were when he took
    office. And earned more in the first two-and-a-half years of his term
    than they did during the entire eight years of the Bush administration.]

    and guess what..

    Democrats profit the most off of huge corporations..

    [Democrats beat the market by 73 basis points per month, compared
    to 18 for Republicans. That’s a rout anyway you look at it. Senators
    fare even better than house members.]

    go figure (#18)..

    So I’m supposed to listen to this puffed up business owner on TV in the Ohio market every night and can’t call him on his lies? He put himself out there as a public figure when he did the ad so he should have expected that there would be a two way conversation–you know free speech and all?

    If he didn’t need an SBA loan he should have gone to a private bank and not asked the SBA to back his loan — that tells me he couldn’t get a BANK LOAN ON HIS OWN he NEEDED gasp govt. help.

    Go ahead you nutty leftists…go ahead and try to actually DO something. That will give us all we need to end it for you.

  • FreetobeMe

    @ylee coyle You have a perverse way of defining a two-way conversation. Making threats to someone due to his or her political views, or the politicians he or she supports, is not acceptable “two way conversation”. Let’s see how you cry when it happens to you. For now, put a sock in it cupcake. We’re really disgusted with your rules of engagememt.

    In 08 Obama carefully hid who he was from the American people — why is he not trying to do that now? He’s acting like a dictator while he desperately tries to keep his base in line and cheat his way in again. Attacking chicken restaurants, blue collar workers and suburban Americans is not the way to win the minds and hearts of voters and Obama’s personal likeability numbers reflect this.

  • sandy

    Could we please have a President without a goon squad?

    Have some sympathy for Jack Gilchrist in Hudson. He spoke what he believed and is becoming a Republican mascot for business owners. The individuals attacking Jack are without excuse. But we have a bigger problem, and not even the reporters are picking up on it.

    Everyone gets some blame for this. Let’s start at the beginning. Mr. Gilchrist took offense at a short phrase taken out of a speech. There’s no way he could have heard or read the rest of it. He gets a failing grade for not doing his homework. He also has detention for copying someone else.

    Then we have the attackers; the hooligans at a rugby match. They are helping nobody; they get off on the adrenalin of it and are an embarrassment. They get expelled. This is not a competitive sport; this is debate over the future of our communities and country.

    And what of the people using Jack as a mascot? They get him wound up with half-truths and parade him in public. Remember 2008’s Joe the plumber? Joe’s complaint wasn’t valid, but was used anyway by the same group using Jack. Their future is in the hands of voters. Let them know what you think of their behavior.

    Last, but not least, we have the media. They got the “who, what, and where” parts covered, but did not follow up with “why” this happened. They get an “incomplete” grade on the assignment, but have a chance to make up the work.

    I live one town over from Jack, and hear a lot of stupid talk. A lot of it coming from one source in particular. I have found a pattern in this election cycle. Forget the normal campaign rhetoric from the candidates. This is about false content in the other media; internet, twitter and email. Here is what I have found.

    1. The bashing is against Obama. There’s almost nothing against Romney; very odd.
    2. About a third of it involved faked photos with changing messages.
    3. All statements are completely or mostly false.
    4. Research was able to track over 90% back to Tea Party organizers, lately from Maine and Michigan.

    The Tea Party movement is funded primarily by publisher Rupert Murdoch and the Koch brothers. This is media and big oil backing Romney and the Republican (GOP) party. It is also Republican legislators who have created voting requirements which prevent a certain demographic from getting required id. Is it coincidence these are mostly the elderly and poor, who generally vote Democratic?

    I can research actual texts of legislation, but could never know all the deals conducted behind closed doors. I can hear and see the people funding Romney, and the corporate attitude that voters are expendable. There’s poison in the tea, and I’m not drinking or voting for it in November.

    Good luck to all of us.
