Not only do Democrats actively engage in violent rhetoric:
- Jimmy Hoffa predicts ‘civil war’ in Michigan
- MI State Representative Douglas Geiss (D) said that “there will be blood.”
But it leads to actual violence from their minions:
The thug in this video who threw the sucker punch at Steven Crowder has been identified as Tony Camargo, a union official in Michigan.
And how was this bottom-feeding mouth-breather identified so quickly? The MENSA member had it stitched in his jacket when he committed felony assault.
Michelle Malkin, as usual, has a great round-up of the union thuggery from Michigan yesterday.
Steven Crowder handled himself quite well by not fighting back. I know the temptation here would have be to fight back and whip that coward’s ass…but had Crowder fought back, I have little doubt that he would have been ganged up on by this pack of animals and beaten badly.
Crowder later commented that he believed that if he had tried to fight back, as he appears more than capable of, they would have killed him where he stood. He said he’s never seen “such hate and anger in one place.”
While he didn’t fight back then, that doesn’t mean he’s backing down. He’s manned-up and issued a challenge to the cowardly union-boss: a real, legal one-on-one, officiated MMA fight in the ring. With a wager, with the winner donating to a charity of their choice.
I’d bet you dollars-to-donuts that this coward does not accept, though. Because, like most cowards who are emboldened by numbers and mob mentality, he’s not a real man, and would never face a man one-on-one in a fair fight.
I once issued a similar challenge to the Boy Wonder Ezra Klein (albeit, it was a boxing match, rather than an MMA fight, but also with all proceeds and the purse going to charity). Klein did not accept my challenge. Though, the challenge still stands if he’d like to be on the under card of the Crowder vs. Camargo card…
It should come as no surprise that the White House declined to condemn the union violence in Michigan. And why should they? Not only does obama condone the violence, he’s inciting and encouraging it. Always has. It’s the ‘Chicago Way’
Of course the biggest crime being committed here isn’t the felony assault, it’s the media malfeasance. If a Tea Party protester started punching out a Liberal journalist (say, for example, Anderson Cooper or Chrissy Matthews)…it would lead every MFM outlet. For days. The media would have uncovered the identity of the attacker within minutes and would have news vans in front of his house and reporters hounding his co-workers, friends, and family within hours.
They would have blamed the “violent rhetoric” of Conservative politicians that led to this felony assault. They would have demanded that those politicians resign and the Tea Partier arrested.
But since it was Democrats engaged in violent rhetoric and it was Leftist agitators punching out a Conservative journalist…crickets.
If the rules have changed, though, and it’s now not only OK to punch out-of-line journalists with whom you disagree, but encouraged….someone let me know. And text me the address of the Texas Tribune.
As far as I’m concerned, union thuggery should be prosecuted under RICO. Unions extort employers, employees, and incite violence.

Remember, the left is the major purveyor of political violence in America. Here’s the cretinous Gawker on that: gaw.kr/YZSW8U

Between Occupy and the unions, the left is the major purveyor of political violence in America today.

And finally, Ezra Klein, once again showing that he’s not quite as bright as he thinks he is:
Right-to-work is some incredibly misleading framing. It’s right to not-pay-union-dues, or right-to-free-ride
