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.

    I will be applying for a CCW Permit tomorrow. It is just going to get worse.

    reminiscent of barbarian rituals after battles, they go in to mutilate the bodies


  • flyover

    The stupidity on display here is just astounding. Cutting up a tent, like it’s a slaughtered prize, wow.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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

    Surely, Barack Obama will condemn this violence and destruction.

    Haaaahahahaha, no way in hell.

    And don’t call me Shirley.

    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. “
