Organizing for Revolution: The Final ‘Push’ To Transform America

Crossposted at NewsReal Blog

“A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another.” ~ Mao

We are currently in the midst of a battle for the heart and soul of America. This war is being waged at our schools, the workplace and in our communities. States struggling to moderate impossible debt and balance budgets are examining ways to free themselves from the fiscal and political shackles imposed by labor unions whose exorbitant pensions and benefits comprise the bulk of their debt. With the economy tanking and the fight over public union benefits and collective bargaining spreading across the United States, a totalitarian minority recognizes this as their make-or-break moment – their time to seize control of the social and economic environment by force rather than individual choice.

When You Take Your Hands Off Our Benefits, Then We’ll Take Our Hands From Your Throat

As I documented yesterday in The New Civility: Left Threatens Fox News Reporter Days Before Assault By Union Demonstrator the vitriol and violence of the Left is increasing. Rather than write a long post I thought I’d just let the Left tell you their stories in their own words and deeds. BE WARNED: Foul Language and Violence on Display.

At the pro-public sector union rally at the State of Illinois building in Chicago on February 26th, one protester who calls himself PackerBackerBob carried a sign claiming “the GOP hearts the KKK.” When asked to explain it, he offered $1 million to anyone who could prove it wrong before challenging anyone who disagreed to a fight.

The New Civility: Left Threatens Fox News Reporter Days Before Assault By Union Demonstrator

On the heels of Democrat calls to “Hit the streets” and “Get a little bloody,” the Left’s hatred, masquerading as virtues, has turned to violence. Union thugs rallying with the financial and internal support of President Obama’s campaign arm Organizing for America descended upon Wisconsin to mobilize for collective action and maintain the Left’s grip on taxpayer funded political contributions. Their mantra has become “When you take your hands off our benefits, then we will take our hands from your throat.”

Amid chants of “Fox News lies” and extended arms blocking his camera, Fox News reporter Mike Tobin was hit twice by union protestors while reporting live on the rally in the Wisconsin capital. FNC cut away from Tobin to a scene of the capital rotunda, but Tobin confirmed the assault on twitter shortly thereafter. The Left’s vitriolic hatred is on display for all the world to see.

Mike Tobin’s report last week on the protester’s heckling him in Wisconsin elicited hateful, violent comments on the Huffington Post, precursors to today’s events. At what point will the police arrest the union thugs? And when will the Left demonstrate the new tone of “civility?”

But Tobin is only the most recent in a tumult of violent reactions beginning to take shape across the nation. A FreedomWorks activist was assaulted by union thugs, Former Massachusetts Congressional Candidate Marty Lamb was knocked to the ground by union thugs, a union member attacked and injured a Tea Party activist at a MoveOn.org-organized rally, while families of congressional members in Wisconsin are being threatened and harrassed.

The new “civility” called for by a President famous for stating, “If they bring a knife, we bring a gun,” and “Get in their faces” is taking on a vitriolic and violent reactionary nature. Answering to the call of Frances Fox Piven, who rang in the New Year by calling for violent revolution, protesters organized by MoveOn.org, Van Jones, SEIU, AFSCME and other radical groups are becoming her “unruly mobs.”

“So where are the angry crowds, the demonstrations, sit-ins and unruly mobs? After all, the injustice is apparent. Working people are losing their homes and their pensions while robber-baron CEOs report renewed profits and windfall bonuses. Shouldn’t the unemployed be on the march? Why aren’t they demanding enhanced safety net protections and big initiatives to generate jobs?”

The left always resorts to violence when they fail to get their way. The tax-paying voters have spoken and the union thugs and Democrats don’t like relinquishing the power gained through taxpayer-forced funding of political campaigns. Too bad. Elections have consequences.

Impeachable Offenses? Has Obama Crossed the Line?

Cross posted at NewsRealBlog

And so it begins. As Islamist insurrections erupt across the world, President Obama incites a battle at home between producers and parasites that his union supporters parallel with the struggle of the Egyptian people. Interjecting himself into the sovereign matters of state governments  Obama moved to directly violate the expressed will of the Wisconsin People by actively mobilizing his political organization to affect contractual relationships between the state and its employees, and supporting the shut down of the Wisconsin state government – a direct violation of his oath of office. Ignited by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s proposal to limit public sector collective bargaining rights for benefits by requiring union members to contribute 12.6% of their income towards their healthcare plans and 5.8% towards their pension, DNC Chairman Timothy  M. Kaine worked in close coordination with President Obama’s political apparatus, Organizing for America (OFA), and state & national union leaders to rally public sector employees to protest at state capitals across the nation this month (hereherehere, here and here.)

A Community Organizer is paid to foment resentment and class envy. That’s how they gain power and influence. The Agitator-In-Chief fueled the flames of union dissension, declaring limits on collective bargaining rights an “assault on unions,” encouraged mob rule aross the nation to negate the last elections, and directly violated the powers reserved to the States in the U.S. Constitution’s 10th Amendment. Quoting Mark Jefferson, executive director of the Republican Party of Wisconsin, in an RPW press release,

“To willfully prevent elected officials from performing their official duties in order to circumvent the legislative process flies in the face of democracy. “

President Obama has radical ideas about the relationship between the federal and state governments. As head of the federal government, he has no standing to organize or allocate resources to interfere with a state’s contractual relationship, to openly encourage an illegal strike by militant protestors to shut down a state government, or interfere in any way with a state’s ability to conduct its business. All are impeachable offenses. But as the Heritage Foundation Morning Bell outlines, this is precisely what President Obama did. Continue reading
