“The Sword of the State is drawn to shed the blood of the Citizen!”

The reckless words of Barack Obama ignites another firestorm!

First question I have for the African American voters that ushered Obama into the White House– Do you feel safe when your elected leader calls on Union and Community Organizers (thugs) to “punch back trice as hard” resulting in the serious injury to another African American? Is the health and wellbeing of a conservative African American less than a liberal one? Where are Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Eric Holder and Barack Obama at this outrage?

The only thing that conservative African American Kenneth Gladney was guilty of was handing out free “don’t tread on me” flags to the peaceful crowd. In a way that particular flag and the statement it bears in this incident IS the powerful message that these average Americans are trying to convey to the White House and Democrats trying to force this Health care against the tax payers wishes.

The Gadsden Flag - Wikepedia

“In December 1775, Benjamin Franklin published an essay in the Pennsylvania Journal under the pseudonym American Guesser in which he suggested that the rattlesnake was a good symbol for the American spirit:

I recollected that her eye excelled in brightness, that of any other animal, and that she has no eye-lids—She may therefore be esteemed an emblem of vigilance.—She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders: She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage.—As if anxious to prevent all pretensions of quarreling with her, the weapons with which nature has furnished her, she conceals in the roof of her mouth, so that, to those who are unacquainted with her, she appears to be a most defenseless animal; and even when those weapons are shewn and extended for her defense, they appear weak and contemptible; but their wounds however small, are decisive and fatal:—Conscious of this, she never wounds till she has generously given notice, even to her enemy, and cautioned him against the danger of treading on her.—Was I wrong, Sir, in thinking this a strong picture of the temper and conduct of America?”

Obama’s message to Democrats:

Senior White House adviser David Axlerod and deputy chief of staff Jim Messina told senators to focus on the insured and how they would benefit from “consumer protections" in the overhaul, such as ending the practice of denying insurance based on preexisting conditions and ensuring the continuity of coverage between jobs.

They showed video clips of the confrontational town halls that have dominated the media coverage, and told senators to do more prep work than usual for their public meetings by making sure their own supporters turn out, senators and aides said.

And they screened TV ads and reviewed the various campaigns by critics of the Democratic plan.

“If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard,” Messina said, according to an official who attended the meeting.

SEIU, the nation largest Union of “Healthcare” workers with over 1 million members jumps into the fray:

John Sweeney, President of the AFL/CIO sent out a memo to all affiliates to counter the anti-healthcare protests:

The AFL-CIO has called on its union affiliates to defend lawmakers’ health care reform Town Hall meetings from “Corporate…mob rule” in recent days. AFL-CIO President John Sweeney sent out a memo this week outlining a blue-print for union members to counter the campaign of fear and intimidation in which hired thugs are infiltrating health care town hall meetings to heckle, disrupt and even physically assault health care reform advocates. “We want your help to organize major unions to counter the right-wing ‘Tea Party Patriots’ who will try to disrupt those meetings as they’ve been trying to do to meetings for the last month,” Sweeney wrote, adding, “Remember the hooligans, many of them Republican Congressional staff, who harassed Florida vote counters in 2000? We can’t let it happen again.” AFL-CIO Vice President Rich Trumka added his own angry blast. The thugs infiltrating the town hall meetings of U.S. Senators and Representatives during the current Congressional recess are “corporate-funded mobs…sent by their corporate lobbyist bankrollers to disrupt.” He added, “Mob rule is not democracy. We call on the insurance companies, the lobbyists, and the Republican leaders who are cheering them on to halt these ‘Brooks Brothers’ riots. Health care is a crucial issue and everyone, on all sides, has the right to be heard.”

It appears that the SEIU members that were arrested took this to heart and in gang-like fashion proceeded to punch the man to the ground and then kicked him in the head while he was down. As of the writing of this article there has been absolutely no comment on the incident from SEUI officials.

The St. Louis dispatch covered the story of the arrests, but did not mention anywhere in the article that one of those arrested was a “self admitted staffer for the Congressman” though an aid to Carnahan denied that any of his staff was arrested.

The arrested “self admitted staffer” video:

The original story on St. Louis Dispatch quoted this arrested woman saying the following (and this was after she admitted to causing trouble):

“Spitz said she won’t be returning to any such meetings anytime soon.

“These tea baggers are dangerous,” she said. “I’m not going to any more town hall meetings until these people calm down.”

They did mention the statement made by Congressman Carnahan after the incident:

"Sadly we've seen stories about disrupters around the country, and we have a handful of them here in Missouri. Instead of participating in a civil debate, they have mobilized with special interests in Washington who have lined their pockets by overcharging Americans for a broken health care system."

The original coverage by St. Louis Today was a travesty of liberal talking point and short on truth and depth of facts. For instance, in the second paragraph above the bi-line it stated:

“A raucous demonstration in St. Louis County on Thursday evening at a town hall meeting on aging hosted by Rep. Russ Carnahan, D-St. Louis, mirrored feisty gatherings across the country this week.”

This is patently and absurdly false. There have been no documented evidence of violence where a “tea party participant” that gathered in one of these town halls assaulted anyone with anything other than shouts of frustration because of the feeling that regular Americans are not being listened to, but talked at by elected members of Congress and the White House.

The union aggressiveness and ultimate assault caused by them was whitewashed in this article by the mere mention of their presence:

“In St. Louis County, members of the Service Employees International Union were present when the Thursday melee broke out, and the AFL-CIO this week announced plans to send members to public gatherings in 50 congressional districts this month.”

If there is anyone who doubts that the Unions are professional thugs and capable of extreme violence when the cause fits their views you just need to review the internet of the many, many instances of violence and intimidation tactics that are a mainstay in their political arsenal.
For the democrats to resort to calling in their union shock troops against average citizens you only need to know their anxiety and fear of losing this debate. But for now we can highlight the Socialist Law of Physics :

“For the Left – Any action has equal, opposite and violent reaction”
