Liberal Compassion at 20 Weeks

#StandWithWendy

Yesterday, something very “special” happened in Texas, according to our own president.

He was showing his support for Texas state senator Wendy Davis, who Yesterday, executed a one-woman filibuster to block a GOP-led effort to ban women from aborting their babies at 20 weeks.

Commentary’s Bethany Mandel refuted the moral bankruptcy of #StandWithWendy with one devastating tweet:

But the pro aborts are shameless and soon #StandWithWendy morphed into #TexasSpring (Which should be read #LateTermAbortionSpring or #GosnellSpring)

Because by now, we all know that anything with #Spring attached to it is not going to end well, right? Obama’s “Special” forces accomplished just what the Community Organizer in Chief had in mind.

#TexasSpring: Morally bankrupt mob declares abortion screamfest the new Arab Spring:

The unruly pro-abortion mob that supported Texas lawmaker Wendy Davis’s filibuster of S.B. 5 with out-of-control, screaming tantrums? Just kicking off the new Arab Spring.

Shameless pro-aborts took to Twitter to celebrate the #TexasSpring ushered in by undemocratic mob rule that disrupted the Texas Senate session and delayed the vote until after the midnight deadline. Late-term abortion on demand, more Kermit Gosnells, unsafe abortion facilities? A victory for human rights (unless you’re an unborn human, natch).

These are the oh-so-brave freedom fighters dead set on preventing the legislature from placing restrictions on abortions after 20 weeks.

dead set”. No pun intended, I’m sure.

UPDATE:

A pro-life group responds.

Americans United for Life Says Texas Women Less Safe as a Result of Anti-Life Filibuster:

“Though pro-life leaders were not successful early this morning, we know that abortion harms women and girls, as well as unborn infants, and we see a growing consensus across the country that abortions late in pregnancy are especially harmful to women,” said AUL’s Dr. Charmaine Yoest.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (06-26-13) – Americans United for Life President and CEO, Dr. Charmaine Yoest, commended members of the Texas Senate “for attempting to protect the lives and health of women and girls routinely victimized by a profit-hungry abortion industry, but sadly a large, well-funded, and powerful anti-woman coalition worked to block these much needed legal protections.”

While the Texas House passed the measure, Texas Senators were unsuccessful in overcoming a Democrat Party-led filibuster of Senate Bill 5 that would have limited abortions after 20 weeks, required that abortions take place in facilities regulated like other out-patient surgical facilities, and by physicians who had admitting privileges at local hospitals. The bill also included AUL model legislation regulating the provision of abortion-inducing drugs such as RU-486, requiring that FDA-approved protocols be followed. At this point, the measure cannot be reconsidered in Texas until 2015 when the legislature reconvenes.

“Governor Rick Perry, members of the Texas House, and GOP leaders in the Senate should be commended for advancing this cutting-edge, protective legislation,” said Dr. Yoest.  “Though pro-life leaders were not successful early this morning, we know that abortion harms women and girls, as well as unborn infants, and we see a growing consensus across the country that abortions late in pregnancy are especially harmful to women.”

“Since the trial of ‘house of horrors’ Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, the nation has focused on what all too often takes place behind the closed doors of abortion clinics across America,” said Dr. Yoest. “The time is now to save lives and protect women from an unregulated, unmonitored, and unaccountable abortion industry.”

Big Government: CONGRESS FAILS TO ANSWER CORE IRS SCANDAL QUESTIONS:

Three weeks ago, Breitbart News published an article listing 10 questions the Obama Administration must answer about the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) targeting of conservative groups for scrutiny and harassment throughout the 2010 and 2012 election cycles.

Yet after weeks of House and Senate hearings, and much grandstanding by Obama Administration officials, not a single question posed has been answered.

Here, then, are just a few of the questions lawmakers must obtain answers to beyond the classic question, “What did the Administration know and when did it know it?”

Jim (Punch Back Twice as Hard) Messina in OFA Fund-Raising Email: “If We Do This Right, The Other Side Won’t Know What Hit ‘Em”

jim messina

Jim Messina, the Chair of Obama’s permanent campaign arm, Organizing for Action, wants potential donors to know that “interest groups” on “the other side” have “money to burn” unlike his totally independent “grassroots” group which is run by former advisors to the President, and promises special access to the White House for big donors.

These shadowy special interest groups are trying to throw a wrench into the Regime’s good works, Messina says, and we can be “damned sure this is not going to stop.”

Supporters are urged to donate just $5.00 or more to help them punch back twice as hard. “The other side won’t know what hit em,” Messina promises at the end of his letter.

Friend –

I want to make one thing absolutely clear:

We’re up against a whole lot more than just opposition in Congress.

We’re up against interest groups with money to burn — organizations willing to drop every last penny they have to stop President Obama’s agenda in its tracks. We’re already seeing it on gun violence, and immigration reform — they’re going to spend millions to throw a wrench in the works of progress.

You can be damned sure that this is not going to stop.

Organizing for Action is going to shift the balance of power in Washington back to real people. People like you have shown over and over again that no amount of spending can stop millions of Americans calling for change.

It’s going to take each of us rolling up our sleeves, getting to work, and chipping in what we can when we can.

We have our first fundraising deadline this weekend. Donate $5 or more right now to become a founding member of this organization:

This is going to be fun. If we do this right, the other side won’t know what hit ‘em.

Video: The Union Goon Who Attacked Crowder Had Spewed Profanities at Him Earlier in the Day

Via FTR Radio, another exclusive video of the menacing mob behavior that eventually brought down the AFP tent.
Most of us have seen the attack on Steven Crowder by the union thug. This video shows the guy approaching Crowder about an hour before the punch while he was debating pro-union protesters in front of the tent. According to eye witness, Thomas La Duke of FTR Radio, this video provides strong evidence that the guy was looking for a fight…
Go to 1:57 to 3:30: (Language warning):
La Duke: “Note to MSM or anyone else. This is UNEDITED video so try to keep that spin to a minimum.”
 

Video: Hannity Guest Tells Steven Crowder: ‘You Deserved What You Got’

On his Fox show, Wednesday night, Hannity pit Steven Crowder against a union supporter who said Crowder deserved what he got when he was sucker punched several times in the face by an enraged union thug.  His guest, Andy Sullivan of Blue Collar Corner, charged that Crowder incited the violence by pushing the thug down, which is a narrative that I’m guessing the left has latched on to, since the thug had gone down right before he lunged at Crowder, throwing punches.

As should be obvious, however, Crowder wasn’t there for a physical fight – one guy against a crowd of hundreds. His arms were up in the air most of the time, to show that he was peaceful.

“He did go down, he was attacking a tent!” Crowder exclaimed.

“It was a melee!”, he explained, “everyone was grabbing and pulling, and trying to keep the tent from being torn down….”

The guy was either pushed to the ground – or lost balance and fell – during the scuffle between the Right to Work supporters defending the tent, and the union goons trying to knock it down. In other words – defensive actions vs offensive actions….It’s unclear to me whether or not Crowder had a hand in knocking him off balance, while he trying to keep a tent with women and children inside from being knocked down. Crowder doesn’t seem to know, himself – like he said, “it was a melee.”

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.

Barack Obama – Call Off Your Dogs

Punch2

It has been said that two things trump everything else in Obama’s mind: redistributing the wealth and empowering labor unions. When he succeeds in  driving us over the fiscal cliff, our first Marxist President’s scheme to turn America into a Socialist paradise will be nearly complete.

In an odd turn of events, though, even as Socialism in America is in ascendance, its shock troops, the unions, are becoming less popular and less powerful. Today in Lansing, MI, as a right to work bill was signed into law,  union thugs, threw a massive temper tantrum reminiscent of what happened nearly two years ago in Wisconsin. “There Will Be Blood:” a Michigan Legislator threatened, and the state’s union goons obliged….

Right-to-Work supporters were assaulted multiple times by the union mob.

Jimmy Hoffa: We’re Going To Have a “Civil War” in Michigan…

The pro-union thugs destroyed the Americans for Prosperity tent while people were inside..

Union thugs assaulted Steven Crowder who was reporting on the scene:

He talked about the assault on Dana Loesch’s show, this afternoon, where he said that he would  have been torn limb from limb if he had fought back.

“When assaulted during mob rule, you just gotta to kind of turtle and let them whale on you..and that’s what happened, today….this wasn’t an isolated incident – the Dark Knight Rises has nothing on this as far as mob rule….I’ve never seen anything like it…”

More ugliness: SICK… Union Thugs Destroy AFP Tent on Michigan Capitol Lawn Then Cut It & Divvy Up the Spoils (Video)

As you may remember, Obama once told the SEIU audience “your agenda’s been my agenda….” and during the first year of his nightmare reign, SEIU union chief Andy Stern was the most common visitor to the Obama White House.

Since Stern stepped down, Obama’s new best friend is Richard Trumka, the head of the AFL-CIO.

Richard Trumka was asked in a meeting “How often do you get to have conversations with the White House?” to which Trumka replied “Conversations or be at the White House?” followed by nervous laughter. Trumka then replied “I’m at the White House a couple times a week…two, three times a week.”

Then Trumka clarified “I have conversations everyday with someone in the White House or in the administration, EVERYDAY.”

It’s no secret that the Communist Party USA openly and actively collaborates with the Democrat National Committee, Obama’s personal campaign (Organizing for America), MoveOn.org, Rock the Vote and the AFL-CIO.

Obama and big labor share the same hard left (Communist) agenda and are joined at the hip.

Joel Pollak of Big Government maintains Obama owes the peaceful right to work demonstrators who were assaulted in Michigan, today, an apology:

Obama traveled to Michigan yesterday to support the unions’ protest against the laws, which would allow most workers to decline union membership. Currently, many workers in Michigan are forced to join unions as a condition of employment. Republicans sought to change the law to make the state more competitive. Right-to-work states typically enjoy faster economic growth, higher job creation and lower unemployment rates.

Fellow Democrat Doug Geiss, a state legislator, had vowed earlier that “there will be blood” if the legislation passed; he failed to apologize, merely stating that he supported “nonviolence” in union protests. No Democrat or union representative, as of this writing, has apologized for the violence that took place today in Lansing.

In the past, conservatives have been held to account for random acts of violence that were entirely unrelated to anything they had said or done. In January 2011, for example, Gov. Sarah Palin was held responsible by media commentators for Jared Loughner’s crazed shooting spree in Arizona, merely because she previously used a political map with targets on it, indicating places where she focused her efforts in the 2010 elections.

In this case, the connection with Obama is direct. He went to Michigan to encourage the unions and oppose the state government; the unions turned out to protest and attacked those who had come to support the right-to-work legislation. In addition to the assault on Crowder, union members tore down a tent that had been pitched by Americans for Prosperity; Breitbart News’ Lee Stranahan captured the union members’ attack as the tent collapsed, with people inside, as union marshals looked on.

Pollak calls on the president to “live up to the commitment to “civility” he promised after Tucson, admonish his union allies, and apologize.”

The leader of the free world was also expected to condemn the Islamist President Morsi’s power grab in Egypyt.

He was expected to admonish James Hoffa when he told a crowd of union supporters to “Let’s Take These Son of a Bitches Out”.

And I’ve been saying for four years that Obama should condemn the use of his image on American flags.

We’re still waiting….

UPDATE:

The union goon who sucker punched Crowder has been identified:

Gateway Pundit:UNION THUG Who Beat Steven Crowder ID’ed – His Name Is Tony Camargo (Updated)

UPDATE II:

Neil Munro, The Daily Caller: White House declines to condemn union violence in Michigan:

White House spokesman Jay Carney declined to condemn the increasing violence and threats by union members in Michigan, merely telling reporters Tuesday that “the president believes in debate that’s civil.”

When asked by a reporter about a claim by Michigan state Democrat that “there will be blood” should Republicans pass a union-choice law in Michigan, Carney professed ignorance and then downplayed the comment.

“I haven’t see those comments, and I’m not sure they mean what someone interprets them to mean,” he said.

Those comparisons some people (me) made of Obama to the Dark Knight character, Bane, are looking pretty prescient, right now…
UPDATE III:
UPDATE IV:
This seems to be the Facebook page of one of the tent attackers from listener   Lorraine. Chris Opalewski, going by his physical appearance and name stitched onto his jacket and present on the back of his helmet, screamed “He’s got a gun!” “I’ll kill a [the?] motherfucker with a gun! I killed 20 motherfuckers with a gun!”
UPDATE V:
You are going to love this….
Believe it or not, there’s now a Memorandum thread with a number of collectivist blogs signing on to “the Breitbart folks faked the violence” meme.
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.
Depressingly enough – the drones actually buy this BS.
