SICK… Union Thugs Destroy AFP Tent on Michigan Capitol Lawn Then Cut It & Divvy Up the Spoils (Video)

Today in Lansing, Michigan union goons trampled and destroyed conservative group Americans for Prosperity’s tent during protests against right to work legislation. AFP members were caught inside the tent during the attack. Conservative Steven Crowder was brutally assaulted by the goons during the attack.

After they destroyed the tent the union members cut up pieces and divvied up the spoils.

Like a pack of barbarians at a pig slaughter.

Surely, Barack Obama will condemn this violence and destruction.

    Who cares about Obama? The mayor is the one allowing this to go on.

    The governor should have the mayor arrested unless the mayor does his job and orders the police to do theirs.

    Ok, what’s that supposed to mean? Has the Democratic KKK party expanded its target list from African Americans to Russians too? What a bunch of racist loonies.

    I thought that vandalism was against the law. If the government can ignore the law when libtards break it, then maybe we should declare open season on libtards.

    “Like a pack of barbarians at a pig slaughter.”

    That’s a slur on barbarians. These lazy worthless lumpen proles wouldn’t know how to slaughter a pig. They would just steal somebody else’s or have the gov’t do it for them.

    They had to make stuff up about the Tea Party. Nothing on tape. No reward for $100,000 from Breitbart.

    Criminal destruction of property. On camera. Eminently identifiable culprit. That tent is (was) worth several thousand dollars, so probably felony territory.

    “The idiot @.50 “Koch brothers are Russian… that’s why they are behind all this, their family is Russian…” he should probably check his retirement portfolio. the wizards of wonder in wisconsin were woofing about koch but hadn’t considered that their own retirement investment package included koch.

    I am pretty sure the first piece of that tent went right to the white house. Thanks for the unity oh great UNITER!

    The threshold for felony Willful and Malicious Destruction of Property in Michigan is $1000. Those tents cost a lot more than $1000. If it’s between $1000 and $20,000 it can get you five years in prison. Over $20K, 10 years.

    Identify. Prosecute.

  • Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WELL? I’d like to think we’ve done a pretty good job with a few young people over the years. Sadly, we’ve come a long way in a not so positive direction. Dads assaulting coaches at Pop Warner or Little League games, riots in Oakland when the home team loses and now attacking rally participants exercising their First Amendment Rights! What happened to the days when the duty of our nation was the TEACH OUR CHILDREN WEL?

  • Teddy

    Dang growing up is hard in Michigan – especially when they tell you you’re old enough to work without your nanny union being right there.

    What a bunch of whiny cry-baby bullies.

  • paul52

    Are Lansing cops ‘union’? Might explain why there were no arrests. Goonions=thugs=violence. Maybe Walker here in WI will change his position on ‘right to work’ now.

  • JDR

    That nobody here has commented on the biblical parallel…


    John 19:16-24 KJV

    16 Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.

    17 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:

    18 Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.

    19 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was Jesus Of Nazareth The King Of The Jews.

    20 This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.

    21 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.

    22 Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.

    23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.

    24 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.

  • Rachelle

    That union should be sued and prosecuted under RICO statutes. Probably Holder and Hilda Solis should be named as co-defendants.

  • Adirondack Patriot

    No problem. At least they didn’t do something REALLY offensive like say “Binders full of women” or such.

    David Jenest –

    the majority of the attackers looked more
    like a pack of FAT OLD WHITE MEN to me..

    This is nothing new. Unions have a long history of violence and thuggery. They are getting away with it now, just as they have in the past. Law enforcement belong to unions, the MSM support them, and their victims refuse to defend themselves. The unions have no reason to be peaceful.

    Either defend yourself and your rights or stay away from those union thugs. Griping about how those bullies beat you up while you did nothing is rather pointless. Standing up to violent thugs requires more than just talk.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

  • those union members must be right-wingers because only conservatives are violent. i know the democratic-party media complex tells me so.

  • davidt

    Through the Michigan Legislature the People of Michigan have collectively bargained for a Right-to-Work law.

    Surprise, surprise, unions don’t like it.

    Psalm 22:16-18

    ” Dogs surround me,
    a pack of villains encircles me;
    they pierce[e] my hands and my feet.
    17 All my bones are on display;
    people stare and gloat over me.
    18 They divide my clothes among them
    and cast lots for my garment.”

    Matthew 27:35

    ” There they offered Jesus wine to drink, mixed with gall; but after tasting it, he refused to drink it. 35 When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots. “

    I suppose the UNION NAZI FASCIST BROWNSHIRT THUGS think “It’s better to be feared than loved.”

    Unfortunately for them, I don’t know anyone AFRAID of them. OR admiring them, either.

    What I am seeing is more demands for SEIU to be made a FELONY, and for other businesses to BUST their unions.

    Union thugs are still heavily out-numbered and I don’t think they are going to enjoy these vicious encounters as much, for very much longer.

    I would of made millions selling Kleenex to all the Cry baby Union Thugs, suck it ppl are Inefficient,go back to school and get a better education which will lead to a better career…lug nut installers on a GM car shouldn’t equate to $60+ an hour (includes bloated pensions). Unions are now realizing, take Hostess as an example of Union Thuggery. Who’s laughing now?

    If I go to a store and an employee, while on duty, punches me and cuts up my belongings, I get to sue the store, right? So why can’t Crowder sue the union? Go after the deep pockets.

    Besides, it’s not just assault. His constitutional rights were violated.

  • squeaky

    jimmy hoffa charged that this would start a civil was. when i looked to see how his union donated to political candidates, it was all democrat. it would seem the only victims are those who want to work but can’t find employment with companies who are “closed” shops. someone was screaming about non-union getting same benefits but i would venture a guess that those same benefits don’t include job security…if they were drinking or smoking pot there wouldn’t be a union fighting to save their jobs. no one covering for a poor employment record.

    Cutting up Fox’s tent reminds me of Romans soldiers gambling for Jesus’ belongings right after the crucified him.

    These are Obama’s people! I refuse to purchase a car or any item made by UAW or any other bunch of thug workers. Notice how Obama loves to stir the pot of [email protected] to get the turds all riled up? Obama loves the violent protests perpetuated by Muslim Brotherhood Islamist thugs and American Union Thugs.

  • david

    like it or not, we live in the society of the binding contract, and thats not a bad thing. if you work for a living, you’d be well advised to work with a contract too. the problem with “right to work” is that it legislatively circumvents the CONTRACT between business and labor. for the record, i don’t know any union members whose kids get a free or reduced lunch at school,or a chips card,or a medical card, or hud,or food stamps, or EIC ,and if social security and medicare folded today, we’ve negotiated for our own insurance and retirement. we’re really the only true “conservatives”. the fact is that most of the non-union working poor are subsidized by their parents and grandparents or the government.
