Police in Perrysburg, Ohio, yesterday arrested four men in connection with the theft of several Mitt Romney campaign signs, some as large as 4 by 8 feet. Police say the signs were found in a pickup truck owned by Sheet Metal Workers International, Union Local 33 in Parma, Ohio.

Corey Beaubian, Sean Bresler and John Russell of Toledo and Christopher Monaghan of Rossford were charged with receiving stolen property. Russell and Monaghan are named on the union’s website as business agents for the Toledo district.

    Are you kidding me? … Normally this is where I say “Unbelievable!” …. but this is sooo believable that I thought better of it. But then I thought that perhaps the significant irony shouldn’t go to waste ….. this is unbelievable!

    • Pete Futz

      Did you see where Romney said to vote for you?

      • Love of Country

        Unfortunately I missed that one, my good man … what an uplifting sentiment. Thank you, Pete Futz!

        :))

        Post edit: Okay, wow Pete …. I just now saw what you were talking about with the other Twitchy article … admittedly, I had no idea exactly what you were talking about at the time I replied to your comment. I finally had decided that you were just being kind and supportive to a fellow hardcore Romney supporter, lol …. and then about an hour later I saw the incident you were referring to and then I had a good laugh at myself!

    I believe they were just “REDISTRIBUTING” the signs. Fair Share and all, you know.

      maybe we can make a deal with them… they can have the signs, if we get the country back?

  • Owen007

    Is it too much to hope for that these four nuts are in lock-up with tougher, more serious criminals?

    “What’d you four do?”
    “We, uh, stole some signs.”

    I bet the Toledo Blade will spin this story, if they report on it at all. >.<

    This is why I don't trust unions. Yes, maybe the bosses pressure them into doing crap like this, but what kind of person is going to let himself be bullied into doing something they know is wrong? I know earlier this year, some union thugs attacked a non-union business.

    We have no official word yet, but there is talk it was a coordinated effort statewide. According to Fox Toledo, the union President hung up on them twice when they called for a statement.

    Unions stealing Romney signs, unions busing Somalians to voting polls, unions sending out thugs to voting polls. They really can’t stand that fact that people are able to have an opposing opinion in America, hey. They really do belong in a country that runs under a dictatorship and have a nice big boot stomp on their necks. See how they like it.

    Do they honestly think that stealing a sign is going to make someone vote for Obama instead of Romney?

    • medicinewomantwo

      yes……….you mean it isn’t?.lol

    Haha, the Obamanoids are in complete fear of their man having a chance of losing the election. I love it!

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    How many union idiots does it take to steal a ROMNEY/RYAN sign? Evidently four. We would have gotten away with it, if…
    I’ll let you finish the thought.

  • TrueCenturian

    Somehow, someway, this runaway social experiment, which would make a great Eddie Murphy movie, has to end and the sooner the better.

    NW Ohio Conservative Coalition #nwoccc volunteers set up a rally across the street from the Sheet Metal Local 33 building about 1pm, We gave away over 300 Yard signs to replace the one that the Local 33 members stole this week. Not a peep pout of the Local 33 all afternoon.

    They can keep taking them. Mitt has plenty more.

    The unions know their heyday is over, unless Obama is re-elected and forcibly pushes them back to an artificial place of prominence. Union memberships are at record lows across the nation. That’s why they resort to the dirty tricks–they can’t win fair, and know their time is up come Nov. 6.

    I am tired of liberals. Its apparent that the left is in full operation mode to steal this election and its about time conservative voters demanded justice immediately.

    The NAACP is breaking voter laws in Texas, ballot machines in Ohio and North Carolina are switching votes from Romney to obama.

    We have threats being issued by liberals against conservatives threatening riots, physical assault to fraudulent letters in Florida threatening prosecution of conservatives if they vote.

    We have UN monitors subverting American sovereignty by interfering at poll locations at the request of racist liberals like the NAACP. We have elected officials in the Senate threatening to obstruct any and everything that the people demand be done because their voice is more important then the voices they work for.

    We have liberal elites inciting racial violence from ignorant Hollywood bigots like Longoria, by the way she doesn’t even know her own damn history, to bigoted haters like Cher.

    Conservatives, your rights are being violated by these twits and unless you do something your vote will be discounted. Your government won’t lift a finger to stop this abuse and will continue to stand by as they destroy everything.

    If they were actually good then they wouldn’t need to steal elections, threaten violence or incite racial hatred. This has but one conclusion if you do not fight back harder. That being segregation, discrimination and hate crimes exploding against conservatives with only a full blown civil war resolving it.

    It doesn’t have to get that far, but you must demand justice and you must fight back. They do not care who they hurt, they enjoy the misery of conservatives and will continue to make things worse until they cross into mass murders and mob attacks.

    Just look at their behavior and tell me it doesn’t lead to a serious crisis in the near future. Just look at how liberals threaten you, your beliefs and your life. This is no joke, liberals are thugs and tyrants. They wouldn’t think twice in causing you harm.

    I promise you, judging the level of ignorance and the level of hate coming from these liberals is escalating. It will only get worse, much, much worse.

    Demand congress to do their jobs and never let liberals threaten you into not expressing your voice. They’re vile, racist, bigoted, liberal monsters. Fight back at these rats and crush their attempts to steal from you your rights.

    Again, liberals are in full swing working hard to steal the election. The NAACP is violating voter laws in Texas with no consequence. Ballots in Ohio and North Carolina are being switched from Romney to Obama. Conservatives are being threatened in Florida of being prosecuted for voting. UN monitors at the request of the NAACP have been sent to facilitate election fraud in the states where ballots have been switched.

    Elected officials are inciting violence and racial hatred. The DOJ is fighting against the legitimate attempt to secure voting from fraud. DHS has subverted the congress and broke federal law by granting amnesty to illegal immigrants for their votes.

    They fight tooth and nail to keep their polls uncleaned and inaccurate. This is real and conservatives need to fight back as the not so silent majority and hold these liberals accountable.

    This is very real and very serious, do not let them steal your vote.

    HERE’S THE FOLLOW UP-THIS IS GREAT!! May be on Glenn Beck tomorrow: I live in a suburb of Toledo: ” NW Ohio Conservative Coalition set up a rally across the street from the Sheet Metal Local 33 about 1pm (Saturday). We handed out over 300 yard signs to replace the ones stolen.

    Not a peep out of the folks from across the street. The Police came by a couple times honked, smiled, On one occasion they asked us to please make sure when people stopped to pick up signs, to please have them pull completely off the road.

    In all, a very good day for honest, respectful adults, trying to correct the damage done by very immature idiots.” per John MacAvoy, NWOCC
