A Pledge for Civil, Non-Violent "Discussion" Over Health Care Offered by... Um, SEIU
Update: A Civil Discussion in Which They Bait "Teabaggers," It's Pointed Out to Me

Sign the pledge!

SEIU, by the way, assures us that they committed no violence; that video you saw "couldn't be further from the truth."

So what's their side of the story? Oddly enough, they don't offer one.

Instead they offer a video of some other town hall meetings with "Teabaggers" (their word, not mine) yelling and such.

Yelling. Premeditated yelling, in the first degree.

The video purports to show "teabagger" violence, but the most they have on that is a woman asking a crowd to "stop pushing" to come to the front of the room to speak. (To which a "teabagger" yells, "Tell ACORN to stop pushing!")

That's their offered evidence. Some pushing and jostling that ends, apparently, the moment after the woman in charge of the meeting says to stop.

And they state:

Incited by extremist radio and TV hosts, "teabagger" protesters are yelling and chanting talking points that span from radicalism to racism.

They don't quite say that "they say things we don't like so we beat on them," but I'm damned if I can find another defense offered here.


We won't stand for "talking points." We consider them a criminal incitement to breach of the peace. And yes, we've all be deputized as honorary justices of the peace by Barack Obama, before you ask.

We just patrol the cities looking for malefactors, kind of like Batman.

Now shut your mouth or we'll shut it for you.

The United States has been politically blessed in that we never had much of political gangs fighting in the streets.

Looks like Obama is willing to sacrifice that happy state of affairs.

By the Way: This was sent to me by someone calling himself "Union Thug." I don't know if was bating me or not; he had a fake email address, so... I dunno.

Anyway, assuming he was on the other side, baiting me, I'm very curious what in the hell he imagined I'd find persuasive in his link.

I was pretty sure he was baiting me but I wrote "Thank you" anyway.

Because... um, it was a great tip. Much obliged, Union Thug!
