The threats and intimidation were spoken by a (so called) man of the cloth…no less. Yeah, Jesus Christ was all about stalking and frightening children for the ‘better good’.
“By any means necessary!”
(Michigan Capitol Confidential) –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.”
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 [Where Gov Snyder lives with his family -ed.].
We’ll visit you at your church. We’ll be at your office.
“Because Michigan workers will not take it laying down — by any means necessary!” he said.
Everyone who has passed the hot dog cart knows what a kind and caring individual Clint is. He never fails to bestow a smile or friendly greeting. In no way [did] he provoke this attack, nor any of the behavior displayed toward him.
Beyond the Cart: The Story of Clint Tarver:
Regardless of your position on current legislation, rebuilding Clint’s Hot Dogs is something we can all support. Please give what you can to get this deserving businessman back out there!
The woman (Lorilea Susanne) who set up the fundraising page for Clint has spoken to his wife. Apparently Clint was hired to provide catering for the Americans For Prosperity tent which was also destroyed by union thugs.
*UPDATE* 11:40am – I have spoken with Linda Lee, Clint’s wife. She says he is absolutely overwhelmed with our support, even more so than by the events of yesterday. I would like to clarify the events, however. Clint hired as a caterer for the AFP tent which was torn down. He was much more concerned about the others, and particularly helped to get the women out of the tent. It was when he returned to gather his equipment that the taunts and racial slurs began. He says the working people did not respect the working man. He was not there to be political; he was just there to serve. This is the Clint we know and love. Please, let’s respect him and leave our political opinions out of this. This is about our support for Clint.
Romney’s Saturday started off well. He was the star of the Ingham County Lincoln Day breakfast, an eggs-and-coffee-and-county-commissioner-placards affair in the dining room of a Lansing, Mich., country club.
Before he spoke, Republicans heard “The Star-Spangled Banner” sung by the Old School Fellas, a zoot-suited amateur doo-wop group. “Mitt’s a good, Christian man like I am,” explained Clinton Tarver, wearing the reddest of the zoot suits.
Update 4: AFP Michigan organizer Annie Patnaude discusses the attack. She was onsite and witnessed the incident.
Update 5: Dana Loesch speaks with Clint.
Update 6: $23,771 raised so far. God Bless you one and all.
Update 7: Lee Stranahan’s in person interview with Clint The Hot Dog Guy. Topic: The union mob racist attack and the the attack on the AFP tent in Lansing. At first Clint was caught in the crossfire then the vicious union mob turned their racist anger towards him. He was working for the enemy –Americans For Prosperity. Thus deserving of their wrath.
Good Lord. Of course, they have no sense of shame, but are they also completely lacking a sense of irony? I mean, the Left has spent nearly four years building their “Tea Party is racist” meme, and the AFL-CIO brutes — who were nearly all white, as Stranahan reports and video verifies — decide they’ll just waste all that liberal media propaganda in order to terrorize a guy whose only “crime” is serving hot dogs?
*** UPDATE 3: Based on tips we’ve established the first name, above. Am working to identify two possible last names that share letters and the union local number from tips. We need as much video/photos as possible that can give us a clear shot of the name and number on the jacket. Please look closely at videos and photos you’ve access to; perhaps you’ll be able to get a decent screen grab.
(Stranahan) –A violent mob destroys the Americans For Prosperity tent on the lawn of the state capital during protest against right to work legislation. While destruction happened, there were people inside the tent and some in the crowd were armed with knives.
LANSING (WWJ/AP) – Top officials raised the threat level in right-to-work discourse Tuesday, vowing to wage war against those moving quickly to pass the divisive legislation through the Michigan Legislature.
“We’re going to pass something that will undo 100 years of labor relations and there will be blood, there will be repercussions, we will re-live the battle of the overpass,” said state Rep. Doug Geiss (D-Taylor).
The battle of the overpass was a bloody fracas in 1937 between union organizers and Ford Motor Co. security guards. Walter Reuther was famously thrown down a flight of stairs and another union organizer was left with a broken back.
In the same verbal vein, Terry O’Sullivan, general president of the Labor International Union of North America, said during a rally the legislation is “dead on arrival.” He also told elected officials who support the measure that “we are going to take you on and take you out.”
“I WILL BE UNAPOLOGETIC ABOUT CAMPAIGNING AGAINST PRESIDENT OBAMA, THE DNC, AND THEIR ASSAULT ON SMALL BUSINESSES”
All caps emphasis …his.
North Carolina small business owner Calvin Hunter exposes the incestuous, illegal relationship between the Democrat Party and Unions. N.C. being a ‘right to work’ state has not stopped the DNC from insisting that all Democrat National Convention Event Planners, Producers, and Production Companies use union labor.
"President Obama’s latest ad states, ” We should all stand behind small businesses”. How ironic is that when they will not stand behind my small minority owned business in Charlotte, North Carolina at the Democratic National Convention?"
When I heard the Democratic National Convention was coming to Charlotte, North Carolina, I was very excited. An event such as this is a once in a lifetime event for someone in my business. Although the Convention would be held at Time Warner Arena which uses the local labor union to provide services that I provide, I felt that I would get more than my share of work at other facilities and hotels in Charlotte which I already do. I registered on the DNC Vendor Database and hoped that I would get a fair share of work.
I began to hear rumors that DNC officials were asking all Event Planners, Producers, and Production Companies to use union labor. I got a copy of their RFP (Request for Proposal) and read it myself. The proposal read “we prefer that you use Union labor” for our events. I was flabbergasted. You see, North Carolina is a Right To Work state, which means in layman’s terms that you cannot make anyone use union labor. For the DNC to come to North Carolina and blatantly break our Right To Work laws is disheartening. Even though the RFP is phrased as “we prefer” saying this is enough to tell anyone that wants to get a piece of this $36, 000,000.00 pie, to abide by their preference. Anyone who wants to do business with the DNC will surely not go against their wishes in their RFP. Again this is a once in a lifetime event. Most people in our business will never see an event of this magnitude in a lifetime.
This is my story and I will not be afraid to tell it. I should not be afraid to tell my story. I grew up in the projects amongst drug dealers and poverty. I should not be afraid to pursue the American Dream. I bring this illegal activity to light for all people that are afraid to speak out about this injustice. I must expose the DNC!
There is no fair chance to compete for DNC Work
America was built by small businessmen who believed in themselves and had the audacity to take a chance on the American Dream. This is the American way. Earn it! This country was founded on the principle that all people will have the opportunity to succeed as far as talent and work ethic will get them.
After listening to the story, this is my personal message to The Democratic National Committee: What you are doing is illegal, unethical, and immoral in a Right To Work State. You should all be ashamed of your selves for discriminating against a black man! As the story says, The DNC is unapologetic about mandating union labor even though it is illegal in a Right to Work State. I WILL BE UNAPOLOGETIC ABOUT CAMPAIGNING AGAINST PRESIDENT OBAMA, THE DNC, AND THEIR ASSAULT ON SMALL BUSINESSES. It appears less than 2 months out that my company will get no benefits from this Convention. The more than 300 freelancers that work for me will reap no rewards of this once in a lifetime event by the so called Party of the working man! President Obama’s latest ad states, ” We should all stand behind small businesses”. How ironic is that when they will not stand behind my small minority owned business in Charlotte, North Carolina at the Democratic National Convention?
I am the American Dream!
This black man, who has never asked to be given anything, has worked for everything he achieved, never complained, and contributes to the economy by developing businessmen, not victims, WILL NEVER, EVER, VOTE DEMOCRAT AGAIN! I AM NOW AN INDEPENDENT. Thank you, Democratic National Convention for opening my eyes to what you truly stand for. I refer to the quote “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” My final message to the Democratic National Convention is WE SHALL OVERCOME SOME DAY because I am the American Dream!
For those of you who believe in giving business opportunities to small business people, please support THE AMERICAN DREAM! If you are doing an event in Charlotte North Carolina at the Charlotte Convention Center, Hotels, or any venue other than Time Warner Arena, Bojangles’ Coliseum, or Ovens Auditorium, please consider giving your business to a company that earns your business the American way, Production Management Specialists LLC! For more information about me and my business’s please visit my Linked in page.
The Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority gives a similar explanation for why it relies on Local 322 for events at Time Warner Cable Arena, Bojangles Coliseum and Ovens Auditorium. But those are city-owned venues, and in North Carolina it’s illegal for a government agency to contract with a labor union.
The CRVA gets around that by asking Local 322 for referrals and hiring those stagehands directly. Local 322 still takes its 5 percent cut from those paychecks. Bo Howard [Local 322 Business Agent] describes the arrangement with CRVA as a “handshake agreement.”
How cozy… Legal?
DNC PREFERS UNIONS
But in reality, the union is everywhere.
And Hunter’s about to lose out to it again on what he hoped would be a big business opportunity. He put himself on the vendor registry the DNC established for companies looking to do convention business, but so far, nothing’s come his way.
“No calls,” says Hunter. “Two months out and no calls. In our business two months out, no calls is not good.”
DNC organizers are unapologetic about their preference for using local union labor when possible.
The proof is in the “no call” pudding.
The ‘International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees’ is a member of Obama union goon pal Richard Trumka’s AFL-CIO.
So gird your loins Calvin…union thug repercussions are likely to follow…
