"The Persuasion of Power:" Vid of SEIU Bullyboys Attacking Actual Grassroots Citizens
Obama: I Don't Want Repubicans "to Do a Lot of Talking; I Just Want Them to Get Out of the Way"

Background from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

St. Louis County police say six people were arrested. Two of those were arrested on suspicion of assault, one of resisting arrest and three on suspicion of committing peace disturbances. Carnahan was gone when the ruckus started.

Kenneth Gladney, a 38-year-old conservative activist from St. Louis, said he was attacked by some of those arrested as he handed out yellow flags with Don't tread on me printed on them. He spoke to the Post-Dispatch from the emergency room of the St. John's Mercy Medical Center, where he said he was waiting to be treated for injuries to his knee, back, elbow, shoulder and face that he suffered in the attack. Gladney, who is black, said one of his attackers, also a black man, used a racial slur against him before the attack started.
It just seems there's no freedom of speech without being attacked, he said.


These Members need cover.

We have strategies to deal with that.

Headline... Changed. Michelle Malkin is, as usual, all over this, and I went over there to find one of her favorite quotes. From Andy Stern of SEIU, as it turns out.

From Michelle's new book, which I've been dickishly derelict about mentioning.

EXCERPTED FROM Chapter 7, “SEIU: Look for the union label,” Culture of Corruption

“The persuasion of power”

Asked about his organizing philosophy, Andy Stern summed it up this way: “[W]e prefer to use the power of persuasion, but if that doesn’t work we use the persuasion of power.

If the media were doing its job, that damning quote would be viral right now.

But they are doing their jobs, I guess. Just not the jobs they pretend to have. They're covering it up, because they're actually unofficial staffers of and consultants to the DNC.

His Master's Voice: "Shut up," Obama explained.

Or you might get your head knocked in a bit.

Kind of terrifying in this context, as... um, Peggy Noonan notes.

Credit to DrewM., who sent me this a while ago, but I ignored him, thus missing an opportunity to beat Allah.
