Union Thugs Beat Black Conservative Outside Town Hall**With Update on Carnahan Staffer Who Admits to Being Sent to Start It

"AFL-CIO announced plans to mobilize labor activists to attend town hall meetings in 50 congressional districts this month to counter the conservative protesters."

"I am Kenneth Gladney’s attorney. Kenneth was attacked on the evening of August 6, 2009 at Rep. Russ Carnahan’s town hall meeting in South St. Louis County. I was at the town hall meeting as well and witnessed the events leading up to the attack of Kenneth. Kenneth was approached by an SEIU representative as Kenneth was handing out “Don’t Tread on Me” flags to other conservatives. The SEIU representative demanded to know why a black man was handing out these flags. The SEIU member used a racial slur against Kenneth, then punched him in the face. Kenneth fell to the ground. Another SEIU member yelled racial epithets at Kenneth as he kicked him in the head and back. Kenneth was also brutally attacked by one other male SEIU member and an unidentified woman. The three men were clearly SEIU members, as they were wearing T-shirts with the SEIU logo."

I imagine it's only going to get worse. They can't stand the thought that people would actually protest without being paid to do so, to stand up for what's right instead of what's going to line a few pockets.

With Democrats from the White House and Congress giving marching orders to Union thugs and goons, I fear you are right, Angie.

All we can do is stand together and fight back. They expect to coerce us into silence again.

Ain't gonna happen!
