New tone? Mich. Democrat threatens violence over right-to-work vote; 'There will be blood'; Update: Mich. Dems proudly tweet violence threat; Update: Video added; Thugs follow-through; AFP tent stormed, Steven Crowder punched; Update: More thug violence caught on video

Unreal. As Twitchy reported, union goons are protesting the right-to-work vote in Michigan today. Riot police are on scene, but maybe they need to move to the House floor. Because Democrat Douglas Geiss is now threatening violence, saying “there will be blood.”

Your move, lapdogs. Violent rhetoric? It comes from Democrats, always.

Twitchy will continue to monitor this situation.

Update: Michigan Democrats so proud of the threat of violence that they tweeted it.

Twitter users rightfully react with outrage and point out the ever-present double standard.


“There will be blood.”

We hope everyone is safe and remains so. This was AFP’s tent earlier today.

And now: Union goons have followed through on the threat uttered by Rep. Geiss.

Twitchy will continue to monitor this dangerous situation.

Oh my Lord!

Vicious thugs.

Update: Huh. Now Michigan House Democrats have deleted their proud tweet of the violence threat.

Now that people are following-through on the threat that you proudly tweeted, right, Dems?

Update: Video.

Update: Video of Mich. Democrat Geiss and his call to violence.

Herman Cain responds to the horrible violence.

More video coming from Crowder himself.

Update: State police have rushed to the Romney building to defend it from protesters:

And several arrests have been made:

Update: More union thuggery caught on tape:

Steven Crowder has posted video of the brutal attack on him. It must be seen to be believed.


Anybody recognize the creep who attacked @scrowder?  on Twitpic

This union thug assaulted @scrowder in Michigan today. Should... on Twitpic

Lock him up.

Crowder spoke with Dana Loesch about the assault, and Loesch has announced a reward pool for information that leads to the arrest of Crowder’s assailant.

He’s absolutely right. We hope his attacker is caught and rightly punished.


Herman Cain comments, as only he can.

    I have a question:

    If a riot cop who belongs to a union dislocates the shoulder of a union auto worker punching out a non union, right to work teacher. Would the cop be considered a ‘scab’ or ‘strike breaker’?

    And, follow up question:

    Would to be safe for that cop to go home after end of shift?

    • NRPax

      He’d be considered a “thug” who is “going against the will of the people” and no, it would not be safe for him to go home.

      [There may come a day when someone kills you with your own gun. But it will be after they climb over the bodies of their own kind and club you to death with it as you’ve run out of ammo.]

      P.S. Re-reading T.R. Fehrenbach’s classic work on the Korean War…..he was there…all through it.

      In it he recounts one ‘Gypsy’. An American infantry sergeant. During the Chinese Intervention, his unit was ordered to DIP—officially known as Defend In Place, unofficiallly understood to be Die In Place.

      So the Chicoms overran his position.

      The position was retaken by US forces.

      Gypsy was found there. Dead. Surrounded by a score of Chicom soldiers. The butt of his M1 broken from having to use it as a club, having run out of ammo.

      • Chuck Pelto

        If you are unfamiliar T.R. Fehrenbach….

        He was a teacher of high school History in 1950, when the Korean War broke out.

        He was also an officer in an infantry unit of his state National Guard.

        The unit was mobilizaed and sent to Korea.

        He stayed as an infantry officer at the regimental level and below throughout the war.

        When the ‘war’ ended, his unit was demobilized and he went back to teaching high school history.

        But he also decided to write a book about the history of the war. It was published in the early ’60s.

        When I was attending the Infantry Officer Advanced Course (IOAC) at Bennning School for Boys, a.k.a., the Infantry School, EVERY DAMNED GENERAL OFFICER who came to address the assembled classes at Building 4, The Infantry School [House], said, in no uncertain terms, “READ THIS BOOK!” That was 1980.

        It’s an interesting, if not fascinating, read. Almost akin to a Tom Clancy. But without the ‘thriller’ aspect, as we know the outcome.

        Still and all, if you’re ‘in to history’, you can appreciate how what happened in late June 1950, looks so much like December 7, 1941.

        IT WAS LESS THAN FIVE YEARS AGO WE GOT SNOOKERED! And these people couldn’t appreciate the warning signs.

        I doubt the so-called ‘Conservates’ can do any better.

        And we wonder how it is that people like US NEVER LEARN!

        If you understood History, you’d appreciate what is going on today…..

            This Kind of War: A Study In Unpreparedness

            After getting through IOAC, I was assigned to Fort Carson, Colorado, in July 1980. I discovered Devner’s Tattered Cover….at that time the greatest book store in America.

            I asked them to ddo a serach for a good condition hard-bound copy. I think it only cost me about $50 (1980). It’s one of the best historical reads of modern warfare available.

            Now days, you can get it from Amazon on iPad Kindle for a fifth the price.

      • Joseph Bentz

        When the chicoms overran their position it was do to their flank being exposed by the So. koreans who withdrew without telling the Americans that they were leaving. There was a lot of cowardice then, the DIP was ignored by many who were fleeing in fear. The official action reports are woefully inaccurate as to what actually occurred. That unit remains in Korea today and will remain there until that unit removes that blot from its history. There is more. Those servicemen who returned home from that unit carried the disgrace with them. There are many stories about that which will probably never come to light.

        • Chuck Pelto

          There was classic mis/non-communications throughout the conflict.

          As for a unit remaining in Korea until it redeemed its honor…..

          ….I see that 2ID is back. It was the focal point of the disaster in Kunu Ri, during the Chinese Intervention.

          • Joseph Bentz

            I was at Fort Knox waiting for separation with many of those guys and we had many many sad stories to share. After discharge we all ran for the bus depot on base if the buses were full they ran for the highway outside of the base some going to E-town and others to Louisville, it didn’t matter we were all desperate to get off base. Most of us carried nothing more in our hands but the large envelope containing our DD-214. Those were indeed sad times.

          • Chuck Pelto

            I can well imagine…..

            I’ve not got to the Kunu Ri fiasco yet. I’m in the Pusan Perimeter and MacArthur has just initiated the end-run at Inchon.

          • Joseph Bentz

            What MacArthur did at Inchon was a brilliant maneuver and saved lives.

        • Chuck Pelto

          There was a lot of cowardice then, the DIP was ignored by many who were fleeing in fear. Joseph Bentz

          I’m into the Pusan Perimeter now. Fehrenbach reports that when the inexperienced and scared troops bugged-out to the rear, when the ‘rear’ was the Sea of Japan and they realized there was no place else to go and knowing the North Koreans were (1) not taking many prisoners and (2) torturing to death those they took alive, they FINALLY found within themselves the famous American ‘fighting spirit’.

          Fehrenbach even cites Rommel on American fighting men. At first they are the most inept soldiers in the world. But they are also the fastest learners. Probably something to do with ‘hybrid vigor’.

    RE: Violence, You Say?

    I’ve noticed a disturbing trend amongst so called ‘liberals’ of late. The trend to communicate threats of violence if you don’t get your way.

    As a professional officer and therefore a student of history, I’ve seen this ploy before, anywhere where wannabe dictators try to bend the general populace to their will.

    It worked in Russia with the Bolsevik Revolution of 1917.

    It worked in Gernany with the installation of Adolph as their President.

    It’s working today in Egypt.

        I’m currently re-reading T.R. Fehrenbach’s This Kind of War.

        I’m into the advance on North Korea after the brilliant Inchon flanking maneuver.

        The account of what the Communists, a.k.a., the Left, did in Seoul and elsewhere in the South after their initial invasion is horrific. Thousands upon thousands dead found in mass graves. Anyone they didn’t like was murdered, if not tortured first. ROK and American soldiers captured by the North Koreans were tortured by burning alive or half buried with their hands wired behind their back and used for bayonet practice.

        Look at how the Left amongst US is behaving, even after their victory last November. They are sore winners. And were it not for the firearms we possess and our skill with using them, they’d likely be all over us like Belafonte called for the other day….that Obama behave like a third world dictator and round US all up into pens. Which, by the way, is what Bill ‘I Bombed the Pentagon’ Ayers—Obama’s polisci mentor—has been planning on since the 1970s.

    …..fomenting liberal violence against anyone who disagrees with them.

    If that’s the case—and it looks like it to me from my experience as a professional infantry officer and student of history—I counsel all those who love the Constitution of the United States, as the Founding Fathers intended it, to get ready. It’s going to get ‘interesting’.

    Children, watch and learn from your teachers and union parents how to grow up to be real thugs. This is your future in Obama’s transformed Amerika.

  • Carl Hardwick

    Do you know what’s incredibly depressing? Where was the giant crowd of conservatives who were willing to fight back? That would have deterred those leftist thugs.

    Conservatives already know that the leftists consider us to be the enemy. However, it seems only a few of us will show up to fight back.

    That’s why we’re losing the Culture War and why the leftists won in November.

    Conservatives keep civilization running and the last thing we want to do is start a fight, which wrecks everything.

    But, as Trotsky said, you might not be interested in war but war is interested in you.

    That video proves that the leftists have not only declared war on conservatives, they’re willing to back it up by actually fighting.

    The November election has surely woken up all conservatives.

    The only question remaining is, what are you going to do about it?

    Take lots of photos and FIRE every teacher who they can prove falsely called in sick.. something tells me there are plenty of substitute teachers willing to work hard and who are more concerned with doing their job and teaching kids than supporting union thugs! And now they’re resorting to violence? Great example they’re setting.. EXACTLY the type of people who deserve to have protected jobs, right?? What a joke..

        They aren’t even pro-choice in that way. It’s just a way they change the language. They want abortion on demand and preferably all special needs children to be aborted on the spot.

    I remember all those “I Am The Mob” Town Halls and Tea Party Rallies were this same sort of thing happened! Knives cutting down tents of the opposition, pulling heavy canvas and tent poles onto folks trapped underneath…good times, good times! Wait, what? NEVER happened at a Town Hall meeting or a Tea Party Rally?? Oh, yeah, that’s right, because the “I Am The Mob” folks and Tea Party folks were/are PEACEFULLY exhibiting their Constitutional freedom of speech and gathering in a group, each and every time they meet for a rallly! The saying at those rallies is probably more along the line of “THERE WILL BE COOKIES!” and not “THERE WILL BE BLOOD!”

    These union goons and thugs gathering to protest peacefully and civilly? Not so much. Feh. I’m praying ALL the states pass Right To Work laws!

    Steven, I hope you and all the other innocent victims of this violent attack are okay!
    Be careful out there on the streets and in the trenches! We are with you in spirit!

    This is exactly the kind of behavior that Obama has repeatedly demanded of his constituents.

    Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”

    Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”

    Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”

    Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Hit Back Twice As Hard”

    Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“

    Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat”

    Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time to Fight for it.”

    Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies.”

    Obama to democrats: “I’m itching for a fight.”

    That looked extremely dangerous and scary. Were the guys in the yellow “Marshall” vests helping or joining in? I couldn’t tell. Also, unions probably just tore up a 6,000 to 10,000 dollar tent.

    Unions are controlled by the socialists, so it’s no wonder they advocate violence. Unions are a bane to this country.

    • JustLikeAnimals

      Correct. The RTW movement that is sweeping this country (28 states now?) are exposing the Marxist-socialist underbelly that has taken hold in the this country over the last 20-30 years. It has been quietly eating away at democratic foundation of this country and has at last emerged from the “underground” to show itself. Good Americans have a horrible fight in front of us if we are going to excise this scourge. Welcome to Barack Hussein’s vision for America. Destroy it from within. Divide and conquer. In 4 years America will be a wasteland for democracy and the Marxist-socialist conversion will be complete. You are witnessing that confrontation in these skirmishes. Weep for our beloved country.

    This is the way left wing nuts handle things and that’s why they are NUTS! Anytime things don’t go their way, they turn to violence! They have HATED the Tea Party because they are calm, well organized and intelligent, something LIBERALS have problems relating to. Unions need to step aside and let our country recover, something that will be slow in coming as long as they keep demanding MORE!


    If they are worried so much about “freeloading” why vote for the ones who promote it the most.
