Yet, when the SEIU beat up a black conservative in the Midwest, the silence was deafening. When union thugs bit the finger off a TEA Party activist, it was excused as an over-excited action.
Ben, have to agree with Morbius on this one.. I saw both attacks ( the above and the kicking from a tea partier) on FNC but only the later on NBC....

I am indifferent to unions.

But if my employee calls in sick, then shows up at a political rally, there is an ethical problem on the part of the employee and disciplinary measures are warranted.

Why should the unions be exempted from discipline?

You obviously have not been paying attention. Every time a rogue element has been identified in the TEA Party/912 groups (like finding a needle in a haystack), it has been condemned. Do a Google search and you will find it for yourself.

Have you ever been to a Right To Work rally in Harrisburg? Try going sometime and watch as union goons are bused in and then bully, shove and intimidate their way through the crowds.
I've seen these apes screaming "union" anytime they think their cushy government jobs get threatened; there is no free discussion or rationalizing with these people.
Take off your rose colored glasses and see the world for what it has become.
I hear you, and I hear what Carl has posted in agreement. Look, my point is that you have created an inflammatory ratio based on attacking one group that you, regardless of whether you pretend that you are indifferent or not, clearly have a great deal of contempt for.

I notice that you fail to address that point in your response. That is consistent with your form of "debate." I know lots of people in unions and I have rational discussions with them all of time. Maybe it's because I don't call them commie scum or insult them in a variety of other ways... Could be...

As for reports you continue to bring up. I'll be 100% honest, as I was before, I don't watch the news waiting for attacks by either side. There are times that I happen upon something. If I do a google search of course I will find what you said because those key words will lead me right to those examples.

The point still remains that even if "one side" is more violent than the other, you persist with your overgeneralizations to EVERY single union in the country. Just like NOT ALL Tea Party members are racist bigots, NOT ALL union members are goons or thugs.

Did you have a personal run-in with someone once? Is that where all of your hatred stems from?
