The Angry Mob (UPDATED)
Update: The video, which showed a counter-protester attacking a tea partier and his wife, has been removed from YouTube. Wonder who complained. And on what grounds. Via Ed Morrissey, and to expand on Brian Simpson’s remarks: . Those darn teapartiers sure are scary and violent. Yet another example of the media double standards on violence at protests.

BREAKING: The Mob Attacks A News Crew!
Sometimes rhetoric gets out of hand. We all know this. There is a difference between disagreeing with someone and villainizing them as Hitler 2.0. So when you paint the President as a monster causing the death of innocents, and the media as his Goebbels, are you inciting violent reaction? Sometimes, apparently so. I shot the shocking video below myself. I have not editing the foul | Read More »
Pelosi to Disruptors: Your advocacy is very American
So disruptions and outbursts interrupt Pelosi discussing National Security to a San Fran crowd, and not only does she encourage them, she specifically calls their disruption “very American” and claims she’s “a fan” of disruptors.

The missing link Democrats have been searching for? Obamacare opponents turning up at town halls really are a mob? We really are nothing but a slew of paid hacks drummed up by the promise of easy cash by | Read More »
More Mob Violence
. .If you can’t view video here’s a summary: SEIU thugs attack Obamacare opponents, smack the person filming right in the face. When you go to the town hall meetings: bring a camera. If you go to a protest: bring a camera. If you think you may pass a Democrat on the street while on your way to Starbucks: bring a camera. Getting the picture?
The Real Mob
“Rather than doing what they were elected to do — safeguarding wages and benefits for union members — they took cash and other bribes to turn a blind eye on contractors’ schemes to cheat the rank and file” As Swamp Yankee noted earlier today, the AFL-CIO is going all-in on the healthcare debate. Their plan, in their own words, is to “organize major union participation | Read More »
