Union Assults On Camera In Michigan!

Background Via Tim Phillip's, President of Americans For Prosperity:

Both houses of the Michigan legislature have passed final versions of right-to-work bills—meaning that, if you want a certain job, you don’t have to join the union if you don’t want to.

The bills are heading to the desk of Michigan Governor Rick Snyder and will await his signature.

Right now, the Left—union bosses, special interest groups, and even President Obama himself—is ramping up pressure for him to not sign these necessary workers’ rights reforms.

But they didn’t count on thousands of AFP activists standing in their way—that people on our side are energized and passionate, and ready to do whatever it takes to secure workplace freedom.

That’s why, over the past few days, the Left’s protesters have pulled out every old trick they have to silence us and bully us: they’ve spent days yelling every obscenity they could think of, and—just this morning—they attacked our peaceful rally.

During this rally, union protesters surrounded AFP's tent at the Capitol and tore it down—actually trapping a number of our folks underneath it. . . . We know this fight is bigger than Michigan. This fight is about giving American workers the freedom to choose what job they want, without having to forcibly give up part of their paychecks to fund a union they might not support.

And the fact that it’s happening in Michigan—the home of the United Auto Workers and the birth place of the modern labor movement—means that it could literally happen in any state across the country.

Like what happened in Wisconsin last year, people on the state level are hungry for change. They want to see more freedom and more open labor markets. They want to remove barriers to job growth, and they want to keep more money in the pockets of the American people.

And, all across the country, we’re winning the hearts and minds of Americans, and they’re seeing, more and more, that states simply function better when economic freedom expands for everyone. . . .

Steven Crowder Takes A Blow
One of the right to work supporters was Steven Crowder who found himself on the other end of a knuckle-sandwich as a union thug decided to take it out on Steven while others recorded it. Steven and all other bloggers and conservative activist know a truth that they should have considered before physically attacking people, verbally assaulting them and failing to act in a responsible manner. That truth: You can use us, abuse use, or even act decently. In any case, we will have a story, video, etc. to share with others. We are not like the old media hiding in our news rooms. Below is Steven Crowder experiencing a physical assault by a union supporter that allowed himself to be transitioned into the a "Thug of the Day." Hope his kids weren't watching his behavior.
Everett Wilkinson, Tea Party Patriots provided other videos and shared the following:

Union members in Michigan were caught on camera punching reporters, taking down tents and even assaulting tea party members in a counter protest.

Just a few minutes into the demonstration against Michigan’s right to work legislation, Union loyalists show their disdain for free speech by instructing and shouting down members of the Tea Party on the steps of the Michigan State Capitol building.

A mob destroyed the Americans For Prosperity tent on the lawn of the Michigan State Capitol during the protest against "Right-To-Work" legislation. While destruction happened, there were people inside the tent and some in the crowd that were armed with knives.

This was a day for the freedom to choose. If you do not want to join, don't. I can tell you from personal experience that the other union workers that you are around will try very hard to get you to join their union. So even though Michigan has taken the first step toward a free job market, it is when you are at work that the real pressure begins. The workers that are unionized will black ball you, not talk to you, will not help you if you need assistance, that is what really happens in a work place to the non-union worker.
