TRS columnist Jen Kuznicki was on the ground yesterday in Michigan and got some video of union thugs collapsing the big Americans for Prosperity tent. Here’s her description and video:
One union member can be seen going for the propane tank on the side as another yells, ‘yeah, burn it down!” There are people inside the tent, trying to hold up the large tent stakes, who witness union members come into the tent during the collapse, take our Reagan cardboard cut out (the bastards!) and flip the table of coffee servers over.
As the tent collapses, the crowd cheers as people are still inside, and hurry to circle the tent all around.
The Michigan State Police do not show up until probably 5-10 minutes later on horseback as the tent is trampled and very few AFP members are zeroed in upon.
As a bonus clip, here is Jen’s video of RTW supporters cleaning up the mess left behind from the collapsed tent while being heckled by more union thugs:
After all the altercations and tent collapse, most union members thronged to the Romney building across the street where the MI Governor’s office is. Supporters of RTW began cleaning up the mess left from the collapsed and destroyed tent, when union members began heckling them.
One union member told the RTW supporters to let the city clean it up. I had returned to the site to look for my laptop cord which was destroyed when unions gathered on the tent to intimidate a man, causing the Mounted Police to come through. Cord completely destroyed.
Notice the mentality of the union member. As the nice people, out of the goodness of their hearts decide to pick up after union atrocities, union members say it is RTW supporters fault for showing up and running our mouths. The RTW member then gets accused of being paid to “run your mouth” by the Koch brothers.
There is nobody paying us. We are decent people.
I watched the man with the black coat and hat civilly discussing the situation with these union members who blamed him personally for weakening union power.
