Check out the response of the angry union bosses that lost a vote on a bill that basically did nothing more than give union members the option to choose if they wanted to pay dues to organizations that then used practically all these funds to have the leadership live like aristocracy while lavishing democrats politician’s campaigns with cash, in return for tyrannical power: “We’ll Be At Your Daughter’s Soccer Game!:
LANSING — A speaker at a union protest against right-to-work legislation said if Gov. Rick Snyder signed the bill he would get “no rest” and that protesters would be at his “daughter’s soccer game.” (Video below).
The Rev. Charles Williams II made the comments Tuesday to loud cheers before a group of thousands of union workers. After his promises to harass Gov. Snyder, he introduced Rep. Richard Hammel, D-Mt. Morris Township, and House Minority Leader Tim Greimel, D-Auburn Hills. Williams is a Detroit-area pastor and left-wing activist.
Gov. Snyder later that day signed a bill into law
making Michigan a right-to-work state. One of his daughters is a 16-year-old high school student.
“Just know one thing, Rick Snyder: You sign that bill, you won’t get no rest,” Williams said. “We’ll meet you on Geddes Road. We’ll be at your daughter’s soccer game. We’ll visit you at your church. We’ll be at your office.
This shit is Machiavellian in the evil it represents. Please spare me the bullshit about how unions care about the workers. All the right –to-work legislation did was make union dues optional. Basically the union bosses and their shills on the left are right now blatantly telling the horrendously callous lie that the bill prevents people from unionizing to capitalize on fear and anger from misinformed fools.
The big thing that the unions and their democrat buddies are fighting isn’t the ability for people’s to unionize, that has not been affected in any way by this legislation, but the loss of their ability to collect union dues through the use of government sanctioned force. What they object to is that union members now have a choice to pay dues, and that they will have to earn the dues. Gone are the easy days of living like kings, with high five and often six figure salaries for the connected, funneling most of the dues they collected to democrat war coffers, with the understanding that that allegiance will buy them legal protection and power to keep doing whatever they wanted, and their strangling grip on everyone’s throat. And they are furious about it. So hence the mafia tactics.
Scumbags I tell you. I am sure they will smile, wink and tell you that what they mean is they will be there “protesting”, but only a fool will believe this was not an attempt at intimidation by making a veiled threat of physical violence. Don Corleone would be proud. These people make it easy for those of us that now believe that unions are causing more harm than they ever did good to make that case.
