This morning I wrote about union thugs getting violent in Tampa, Florida. Tonight I’m writing about union thugs getting violent in St. Louis. First, here’s video of the situation as it happened:
The guy who got smacked around in the video is Kenneth Gladney. Apparently two or three guys and a woman hit and kicked him. He was also referred to as an n-word by the first guy. All of the attackers appear to be affiliated with SEIU, which is part of HCAN. They’re the ones in purple shirts.
So by my count that’s one protester roughed up and one beated down. In both cases, it was union thugs doing the beating.
At what point does the DNC/Think Progress smear of the protesters as a violent mob start to be reported as the inversion of reality it is?
Oddly enough, Lee Fang and Think Progress haven’t uttered a peep on this incident. They’re not alone:
- Huffington Post…Silence.
- Daily Kos…Silence.
- Crooks and Liars…Silence.
It’s almost like they don’t know what to say. This story really doesn’t fit the narrative. Well if I know my union thugs, this won’t be the last incident.
Related: Add one slap in the face to that summary above. Maybe protesters should be bringing bandages to these things instead of signs.
