The Union Label

By now this video has been everywhere. What I find interesting is the yelling at about .50 of someone saying "he's got a gun!".

I have to think this is the union action equivalent of the poacher claiming to the game warden "He was coming right at me!" to justify the out of season meat.

The interviewer was gaming the situation. If he was too young to recall that unions, like other Marxist activists, believe that violence is quite effective at intimidating opponents. The union folk were quite aware of history, of union thuggery, and quite fired up.

Sure, the press is free. In the court room. On the streets, you handle thugs as thugs, not "the story".

Idiot vs. thug. Who knew it might go wrong?
