New Unedited Videos Show AFP Tent Being Attacked by Union Thugs as Lefties Claim “False Flag” (Video)

Thomas La Duke of FTR Radio released more video this morning of the rabid melee that took place in Lansing, MI, yesterday as the Right to Work bill was signed into law. As was widely reported, a union supporting Michigan Democrat promised that “there would be blood, “giving license to the unionistas to get violent, and Teamsters boss, James Hoffa predicted, “we’re going to have a civil war”, adding fuel to the fire. Right-to-Work supporters were assaulted multiple times by the union mob, and pro-union thugs destroyed the Americans for Prosperity tent while people were inside…
As news of the union thuggery circulated, the left-wing spin machine sprung into action – The Teamsters put up a post on their website  that claimed the video of union supporters destroying the AFP tent was a “False Flag” operation to make unions look bad… (As if they needed any help.)

Soon, a dozen or so left-wing blogs were reporting the same thing – Memorandum shows a number of collectivist blogs signing on to “the Breitbart folks faked the violence” meme. According to one blogger: Breitbart Folks Appear to Fake Violence in Lansing:
When I saw this video-claiming that a “violent mob” destroyed the tent the Koch brothers had paid for in front of the Michigan Capitol-I knew right away it was likely a false flag.  After all, Stranahan, James O’Keefe’s buddy, first posted it.
Predictably, MSNBC’s resident intellectual, Ed Schultz is also running interference for the union goons with this report: At Michigan protest, charges of violence, dirty tricks:

…one eyewitness tells MSNBC.com he thinks there may be more to the story. Thomas Duckworth, a Michigan resident and lifelong union member, said he’d been at the AFP tent earlier in the day, when he noticed a man in an NRA hat. Later, he said, he saw the man deliberately loosening the ropes holding the tent up. Duckworth acknowledged that labor supporters had cheered the tent’s collapse, but suggested that AFP had deliberately helped initiate the it, in order to depict their adversaries as an unruly mob.The progressive communications group Progress Michigan also conducted an interview with Duckworth. You can find the video on their YouTube page.

A photo of Duckworth is credited to an MSNBC’s writer, but was taken inside the Progress Michigan offices, suggesting that the two organizations coordinated.

Thomas La Duke’s first video shows the inside of the tent as an incredulous La Duke and Steven Crowder are holding up a corner  as the unionistas bum rushed the tent for the first time. An AFP official can be heard outside the tent speaking through a bullhorn asking the union thugs to respect their right to free speech and their property rights and repeatedly asking that they “please step away from the tent.” La Duke claims the tent was rushed three times before it came down.

This  video of the back of the tent was filmed in the area where Crowder got punched. La Duke didn’t catch that shot because he was focusing on the lil fella who was kicking in the corner of the tent.
In one of the videos, a unionista can be heard yelling that AFP people should have been ‘Aborted” and laughing about it.
The State police showed up AFTER the tent had  come down.
La Duke: “NONE of the videos is edited so that the leftists pushing that crap can kiss it.”
UPDATE:
More “False Flag” hijinks?

Obviously the work of  racist teabaggers  trying to make the noble, peace-loving  union members look bad.

  20. From Facebook:

    Joe Horenkamp “Thomas Duckworth, a Michigan resident and lifelong union member, said he’d been at the AFP tent earlier in the day, when he noticed a man in an NRA hat. Later, he said, he saw the man deliberately loosening the ropes holding the tent up. Duckworth acknowledged that labor supporters had cheered the tent’s collapse, but suggested that AFP had deliberately helped initiate it, in order to depict their adversaries as an unruly mob.”

    Thomas Duckworth is liar. This is a pure bullshit lie. I was there inside of the tent. When it started to come down union people were pushing their way in from the front and the back. As I exited out the back and went around the tent to it’s right side was at that moment when Mr. Tarver’s coffee pots and hot dog serving equipment was overturned and it spilled outside of the tent, and also when I had to help one of the AFP people subdue an old woman union protester in a fake fur coat as SHE was unbuckling the support straps. As soon as we pushed her away she came right back in to continue try to unbuckle the straps.

    If it’s the same guy I am familiar with, with the NRA hat, he is an active member of the Plymouth tea party and not the AFP.
