[...]This picture is a testament to the successful completion of a long-term, systematic programming of mass consciousness by the media, education, and entertainment subsidiaries of the Party Central Committee – starting with the unconditional love of other people’s money and ending with the unconditional rage against enemies of the people.
The demonization of the opposition is meant to be the final stage of revolutionary conditioning. It seems that it just may be completed on schedule, with four more years to solidify the revolutionary fundamental transformation of America.
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.”
How an insignificant, left-wing extremist jackass attempts to boost basement ratings…
(radioequalizer) –Mike Malloy 26 Nov 2012: …these Tea Bag bastards who by the way, I just wish they would all just go away – or, like in Passover, I just wish there was an angel of the Lord that would pass over – instead of killing the first born in all the households of Egypt just wipe out all the Tea Baggers. Just, you know, the terrible swift sword, just [Mike makes exaggerated "swishing" sounds] – lob their heads off!
Mike Malloy may have but a handful of listeners, but he does not stand alone, as he is beloved by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow for his “dark thoughts“.
Amazingly enough there have been no calls for gun control in the wake of this left-wing domestic terror incident. Heh.
(AP) –WASHINGTON • The head of a second Christian conservative organization said Friday she was told by authorities that a note containing her group’s contact information was found in the pocket of a man charged with opening fire at the Washington offices of another such group, wounding a security guard.
The accused shooter, Floyd Lee Corkins II, whose parents said he strongly supported gay rights, had a backpack full of Chick-fil-A sandwiches and a box of ammunition when he said words to the effect of “I don’t like your politics” and shot a security guard, authorities said.
Traditional Values Coalition President Andrea Lafferty said FBI agents visited her group’s Capitol Hill offices hours after the Wednesday morning shooting as part of their investigation. The next day, she said, members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force came by and confirmed that “our information was in his pocket,” including the location of the group’s offices.
“I was stunned,” Lafferty told The Associated Press, adding that she believes her group may have been targeted.
Lafferty said she has written Attorney General Eric Holder seeking protection for her group, but that authorities have not been responsive.
“Under this Justice Department, Christians are a very low priority on their lists of concerns,” she said
The shooter is reported to have had multiple guns and a large supply of ammo. Thankfully, the security guard stopped him by wrestling the shooter to the ground (after taking a bullet), before he was able to commit mass murder. He also may have been carrying a Chick-fil-A bag. Both Chick-fil-A and FRC support traditional marriage. Gaystapo?
(FOX) –A security guard at the Family Research Council’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. is being hailed as a hero after he stopped a gunman posing as an intern, taking a bullet in the arm before wrestling the suspect to the ground.
The gunman entered the lobby of the organization’s Chinatown headquarters around 10:45 and expressed disagreement with the conservative group’s policy positions, Fox News has learned. When the guard, who was not identified, asked him where he was going, he opened fire, according to police.
“The security guard here is a hero, as far as I’m concerned,” D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said. ”He did his job. The person never made it past the front.”
The suspect “made statements regarding their policies, and then opened fire with a gun striking a security guard,” a source told Fox News. WJLA-TV7 reported the suspect was also shot. Sources also said the gunman may have been carrying a bag from Chick-fil-A, the embattled fast-food restaurant whose president came under fire from gay activists after he said he did not agree with same-sex marriage.
Sources told Fox New that after guard took away his gun, the suspect said, “Don’t shoot me, it was not about you, it was what this place stands for.” [...]
Update: NBC4′s (DC) Jackie Bensen reports via Twitter that the shooter was carrying Chick-fil-A relateditems:
(NBC7-DC) Authorities found two loaded magazines with 15 rounds each in the suspect’s backpack, as well as Chik-Fil-A promotional materials, NBC4′s Jackie Bensen reported.
More on the shooter’s statement:
(WJLA -ABC7)–A suspect in the shooting of a security guard at the headquarters of a downtown D.C. conservative Christian lobbying firm criticized the group’s anti-gay stance before opening fire, a source tells ABC7.
The suspect was taken into custody by the FBI and was being interviewed. Officials say that they not sure about a motive, however, sources say that the suspect walked into the office, made a statement and opened fire.
It is not known that the suspect said; however, multiple sources tell Donelan that the overtones of his statement led to federal law enforcement officials becoming involved in the investigation.
[FRC President Tony] Perkins was an outspoken defender of Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy’s public stand against same-sex marriage, which made the fast-food chain a flashpoint in the nation’s culture wars. The Cathy family foundation has funded the Family Research Council. [...]
A law enforcement official says a suspected gunman made a negative reference about the work of a conservative Christian lobbying group before shooting a security guard.
The reference was made in a confrontation in the lobby of the Family Research Council in Washington Wednesday morning. The official said the suspect was not specific. The official would only speak on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing. [...]

The suspect in today’s shooting, Floyd Corkins II of Virginia, had been volunteering on some weekends at the front desk of The Center, D.C.’s LGBT community center, the center’s executive director, David Mariner told BuzzFeed.
“The FBI was just here, and we are cooperating with them fully,” Mariner said. “We are shocked and appalled that this happened, and I cannot even imagine —”
He added, “All of our volunteers, they register online, they go through a background check, and then they go through a training.”

(WJLA) –Late Wednesday, investigators descended on the Herndon family home of the suspect in a shooting at the headquarters of a downtown D.C. conservative Christian lobbying firm.
No one leaving the home wanted to talk, but neighbors describe the family as a retired military couple with two younger sons. They say they saw no signs of trouble from the family, who they described as good neighbors.[...]
