Do You Fund A Terrorist Network?

fbi

According to the FBI:

Domestic terrorism is the unlawful use, or threatened use, of force or violence by a group or individual based and operating entirely within the United States or Puerto Rico without foreign direction committed against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof in furtherance of political or social objectives.  (source)

In Michigan, union protesters physically assaulted Steven Crowder of Fox News, then destroyed a tent belonging to Americans for Prosperity (video below).

Let’s examine:

The union activity caught on tape involved

  1. unlawful
  2. violence and/or use of force
  3. by a group
  4. based in the United States
  5. without foreign direction (that we know of)
  6. committed against persons (Crowder) and property (AFP)
  7. to intimidate or coerce the governor of Michigan (government) and members of AFP (civilian population)
  8. in furtherance of political or social objectives

Therefore, unions – at least those involved in the Michigan terrorism -- are terrorist organizations. International unions would seem to be international terrorist organizations.

Funding of terrorist organization is a federal crime. Logically, then, anyone who voluntarily contributes to a union willfully and unlawfully supports a terrorist organization.

Do you?

Tea Party Leader Says Let’s “Take Out” Union Members

We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on Tea Partiers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Unions. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about Tea Party people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They've got a war, they got a war with us and there's only going to be one winner. It's going to be the Tea Partiers of Missouri, and America. We're going to win that war.

Rick Santelli, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let's take these son of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong!

Did I say “Tea Party Leader's message?” Sorry. I meant to say that was a paraphrasing of Jimmy Hoffa’s message to his Teamsters. Hoffa introduced President Barack Obama. That’s part of Obama’s new civil tone.

I swapped Tea Party and Tea Partiers with union and workers.  Had I or any Tea Partier actually said those words, the FBI would already be at our doors. But union crooks get applause from the President for calling for violence.

Isn’t it odd that a man whose father so famously failed at violence as a political tactic would use violence to get his (very unpopular) way?

UPDATE St. Louis Tea Party Coalition releases official response to Teamster Boss Jimmy Hoffa's call for war on the Tea Party.

Michelle Malkin counts down union thuggery 2011.

Judy Ancel: Teacher of the Year

Judy Ancel is the University of Kansas City instructor responsible for teaching students to use violence, sabotage and intimidation as political tools. She’s telling the Kansas City Star that she’s receiving threats from people upset that she teaches students to threaten others. I oppose violence, sabotage, and intimidation as political tools.  But Judy Ancel’s message of violence seems to have gotten through to some people.

Too bad Ancel doesn’t use her skills for good instead of evil.

Tea Party Leader condones political violence: “It certainly has its place. It’s a tactic that should be used at the appropriate time. I believe in a violent overthrow . . . , and that freedom is found at the barrel of a gun”

Did I say “Tea Party Leader?” I meant labor union leader Don Giljum condones violence, intimidation, and sabotage. Giljum’s the business manager for Operating Engineers Local 148 and a lecturer at University of Missouri-St. Louis. It’s in the UMSL classroom that he pontificates and brags about the  . . . the uglier side of negotiations. Here’s what he actually said about violence for political purposes:

It certainly has its place. It’s a tactic that should be used at the appropriate time.  I believe in a violent overthrow of Bourgeois, and that freedom is found at the barrel of a gun

 

The Don Giljum Story

That’s not all Giljum said.  When union guys warn about a problem but their managers don’t react the way the want them to, Giljum helps the union guys “make” the bad thing happen. Like that guy in 1993 floods who “made” the dike break after the Army Corps of Engineers dismissed his prediction that it would break.  That kind of thing.

The technical term is “sabotage.” 

Only Giljum’s guys work for Ameren.  You know, they people who run the nuclear plant in Callaway County, Missouri. Actually, Giljum’s people run it; Ameren just owns it.

Maybe guys who like to use sabotage to get their way shouldn’t have anything to do with nuclear power plants.  You think?

Oh, and Giljum likes to use intimidation and threats.  He had some big guys stalk an executive, he tells students in a class funded by Missouri and US taxpayers. These goons did such a good job of stalking this guy that the guy started wearing body armor.

Is that a riot or what?  Probably took a few years off the guy’s life, too, and made his family miserable. But, so what?  All in a day’s work at the Local 148, right?

You Did Great Today

I heard from witnesses that Gov. Nixon’s phone rang incessantly today. Good. Tomorrow too, we hope.  Nixon had to change his schedule today to avoid questions about Giljum, Ancel, and U of M’s $416 million in taxpayer funding. 

If you agree with Giljum’s tactics and Jay Nixon’s tolerance of threats, violence, and sabotage, do nothing.  The world will collapse around you.

But if you believe that sabotage and intimidation training has no place in a tax-funded university, please call your governor on Thursday, April 28. 

Here’s the details:

1.  Call the Chancellors of all three schools at the numbers listed below.  Tell them you demand that they fire everyone responsible for these classes, and that they take positive steps to prevent criminal instruction in the system. 

  • Thomas F. George, Chancellor, University of Missouri-St. Louis  314-516-5252
  • Leo Morton, Chancellor, University of Missouri-Kansas City 816-235-1101
  • Brady J. Deaton , Chancellor, University of Missouri 573-882-3387
  • And the U of M Interim President, Steve Owens, (573) 882-2011

2.  Call your Missouri State Senator and ask him or to demand a vote on SB1, a bill that would give Missouri workers the right to opt out of union membership.  You can look up your Senator here.
3. Call Missouri House Speaker Steve Tilley  at 573-751-1488.  Tell Speaker Tilley you want SB1 voted on and passed, and you don’t care how many of his donors it irritates.
4. Call Governor Jay Nixon at Phone: (573) 751-3222

Tell them you want the Labor Studies program suspended until the investigation is over. And you want sabotage and intimidation lessons banned from U of M classrooms.

P.S. We heard that the Patriot/Tea Party legislators in Jefferson City were aware of the University of Missouri story  . . . and furious.  But the establishment Republicans had no idea what anyone was talking about.  We’ll be compiling names of Republicans who don’t need to return to Jefferson City in 2013, and another list of those who do. 

Stay tuned.
