Follow up story! 500 Tea Partiers storm government building, take hostages !

Got your attention?
This is a pretty good play on the media by Mr Brietbart who very skillfully played out a scenario where he wanted to see if more attention would be drawn to it if it were reported that a Tea Party group had done this instead of union thugs! The reactions were mixed and varied from dismay to oh my gosh to it’s on now!
I had many responses to the tea party heading and some even said, “they have done it now!” Let’s not forget that 500 union thugs held up a train, held hostages, threatened death, spilled the grain off the train, threatened to come back later with guns and they get a pass! Not a single arrest! Gaurantee you anyone else would have been placed under the jail!
Thanks for participating in this experiment, the lesson learned is there is definitely a double standard in this country where big money and fear and intimidation prevail! Enjoy the article below, I did!

Got your attention?
Good. Because it seems that unless a story has negative implications for the tea party no one (even Fox News) is going to make a stink about it.
On Thursday morning, over 500 members of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (an AFL-CIO union) did something that should have been the top news story on every major news network in the country.

Hundreds of Longshoremen stormed the Port of Longview early Thursday, overpowered and held security guards, damaged railroad cars, and dumped grain that is the center of a labor dispute, said Longview Police Chief Jim Duscha.
Let us change that around a little and conduct a thought experiment. What if the event were described like this?
Hundreds of Tea Party protesters stormed City Hall in Longview early Thursday, overpowered and held security guards, damaged office furniture, and dumped files out of the Hall’s archives, said Longview Police Chief Jim Duscha.
How would MSNBC, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, and even Fox News handle the story? Do you think there would be wall to wall coverage of this criminal activity being done by a battalion-sized crowd of tea partiers? How many talking heads and other assorted pundits would be weighing in about heated political rhetoric and how opponents of Obama’s presidency are directly or indirectly responsible for a “toxic climate” that resulted in this behavior?
Five hundred people.
Six guards were held hostage for a couple of hours after 500 or more Longshoremen broke down gates about 4:30 a.m. and smashed windows in the guard shack, he said.
No one was hurt, and nobody has been arrested. Most of the protesters returned to their union hall after cutting brake lines and spilling grain from car at the EGT terminal, Duscha said.
Five hundred people stormed a shipyard, held hostages – HOSTAGES – for a couple of hours, smashed windows and then calmly returned to their union hall after cutting brake lines on trains and spilling grain (aka destroying property). And NO ONE was arrested? Are you kidding me?
What are we supposed to learn from this? Is it now okay to destroy property and literally take hostages as long as you roll 500 strong and belong to a union? Would anyone else get away with that without someone being sent to jail? What is going on in this country? Where is the outrage? This is not acceptable behavior if done by ONE person. This is 500 times worse!
Police from several agencies in southwest Washington, the Washington State Patrol and Burlington Northern Santa Fe responded to the violence to secure the scene that followed a demonstration Wednesday.
“We’re not surprised,” Duscha said. “A lot of the protesters were telling us this in only the start.”
OH! It gets even better! This is only the start! What are they going to do next? Shoot the security guards instead? Or maybe simply beat them with the baseball bats and crowbars they brought this time? Guns will come later, I guess. We can’t rush these things.
Again, if one lone tea partier had done something remotely close to what these union thugs did on Thursday, there would not only be wall to wall coverage of it, the Left would use this one individual to prove that the Tea Party are nothing more than anti-government terrorists. They tried, and failed, to do just that with the Tucson shootings – too bad Loughner turned out to be more Leftist than tea party.
This action by the ILWU is an outrage. It also isn’t some rogue group of thugs.
The train was the first grain shipment to arrive at Longview. It arrived Wednesday night after police arrested 19 demonstrators who tried to block the tracks. They were led by ILWU International President Robert McEllrath, who said they would return.
See that? The night before, Wednesday, some thugs – accompanied by the president of the union – were arrested for blocking the tracks. The next day they returned just like the president of the union said they would. This time they came 500 deep.
Just imagine if the head of a tea party group made a threat like that and the next day 500+ tea partiers showed up and committed an act of domestic terrorism like the union goons did on Thursday. We’d never hear the end of it.
We shouldn’t hear the end of this, either. But it seems many people don’t even want to talk about it. For nearly three years we’ve been told that the tea party are violent extremists who are stoking … er, exactly the kind of thing the ILWU did on Thursday. This union actually did what the Left has been accusing the tea party of trying to do.
What on earth is going on here?

500 Tea Partiers storm government building, take hostages!

This story hot off the presses! Too early to tell what is going on! Story still evolving! The rest of the story as it develops! Stay tuned!

“This is war, Whitey wants to lynch blacks, call for bank runs, civil unrest, Allen West resign from this hate group”

Can you say “Class Warfare?” Come on lets do it with one great big yell from Washington DC, C-L-A-S-S W-A-R-F-A-R-E!

These hate filled, racist words are not coming from the Ku Klux Klan, the Black Panthers, Aryan Nation or some Skin Head Neo Nazi group, they are coming directly from our elected Congressmen and women, more specifically the Congressional Black Caucus of the most current 112th Congress!

The near 50 members of this current elected Congress are spewing hate and dissension on Tea Party and Americans who dare speak against the Socialist policies of a wayward President.

It is so hard to believe that we live in the United States of America and in “town hall meetings” all across America, members of our Congress are spouting hatred and racism toward Americans of all colors. Listen to a few things recorded in their town hall meetings just last week!

Congressman Andre Carson, Indiana, 17th District
“Would love to see us as second class citizens and would love to see blacks “hanging on a tree” says Andre Carson Democrat from Indiana 17th District in front of a cheering crowd of supporters. He went on to say as he raised his audience in to a fever pitch, Yelling from a stage which resembled a church, “We got to see change in Washington and the Tea Party is preventing the change!” “ They are comfortable having us where we were 50 to 60 years ago, but it’s a new day with a black President and a black Congressional Congress (to stand up for you!”)

Maxine Waters Democratic Congressman, California, 35th District
“ We cant be intimidated, we cant be frightened, as far as I am concerned the Tea Party can go straight to hell!”

Cedric Richmond, Louisiana, 2nd District
Congressman John Lewis, Georgia, 5th District
Said at an Atlanta town hall meeting at Atlanta Technical College on C-SPAN, says Congressman John Lewis says “We are fighting 3 wars, well actually we are fighting 4 wars, the 4th war is a war the Tea Parties have started with the United States of America, more particularly, the President! They are willing in this war to have as casualties the 14.1 million Americans that don’t have a job! They are willing to wreck this economy simply for political gain.

Congressman Alcee Hastings, Florida, 23rd District
At a Congressional Black Caucus in Miami this week on 8/22/11, Alcee Hastings says “he has never seen such an attitude, expressed toward poor people! We can dance and tap around all of it, we all know racism, we give the Tea Party (all the credit), that’s a whole handful of people, but it’s the whole Republican Party has been captivated by that notion!”

Maxine Waters Democratic Congressman California, 35th District
Spoke at the same town hall meeting as Congressman Cedric Richmond on CSPAN says “if you show up at noon at any bank in America, and throw a ring around that bank with human bodies and for one minute think they are going to be a run on that bank, they will change their ways!”

Congressman Frederica Wilson, Florida, 17th district
They are racist and many of them are from Florida, who I serve with, they have said it to my face, they are not voting for any increases in revenue, and if they are going to die by the sword (someone from the audience says “then they gonna have to die”), they are gonna have to do it! We are gonna have to advocate, we are gonna have to go to their homes, they have black people living in their districts too.” She stated in a crowded room, wearing her trademark red cowboy hat while speaking to reporters. She went on to say at another town hall meeting this week, “while we discuss our very real concerns, lets all remember who the real enemy is, and the real enemy is the tea party!” Cheers once again from the enthusiastic crowd.

Congressman Al Green Texas Democrat 9th District
Was quoted as saying at his town hall meeting, “We now have folks who call themselves by many names, but ,they have hijacked the principles of the civil rights movement, (crowd member states “that’s right”) they don’t just go into their neighborhoods and protest, they come into the hood and protest! The question is this what will we do? Will we allow the minority forces to speak for the majority? We are going to stand up for the things we believe in! Are we willing to go across town and are we willing to go into other places beyond our comfort zones, and are willing to stand up for the CBC (Congressional Black Caucus) stand with the CBC and help the CBC make a difference, are we going to do it? Crowd enthusiastically cheers and stands to its feet!”

Folks the tide has been turned, racism it raising its ugly, ugly head and it is coming from inside the House of Representatives, straight out of the White House, directly from a group of Congress men and women who represent you. The racist words from our Congressmen and women is encouraging riots in our country and the whole CBC should be brought up on charges and locked away for treason against their country! These are enemies of the people of whom they represent, they are a domestic enemy. These Town Hall meetings were well orchestrated to make the people of this country, the tea parties and all Americans within their constituency, within their districts go away by fear and intimidation and you barely see it covered in the media!
Violent uprising and class war fare is being advocated against the people of the USA from approximately 50 of our Congress men and women of the Congressional Black Caucus and hardly a word spoken.

We need to contact the Attorney Generals and their offices and demand their resignations! This is a dangerous game they are playing. They are promoting a hatred that could bring us indeed back in time 50 or 60 years.

We are living in an extremely dangerous time and if these members of the CBC are encouraging and spewing hatred on the people of America, they are placing Americans in a very volatile position for hate mongering and bullying from the halls of Congress and on our streets. We must put our foot down and vote them out of these positions come election day.

We as a nation have advanced way beyond the days of slavery, segregation and white on black racial attacks, perfected, no, but now I feel the hand has been turned and now many Americans of all colors may be the victim of a runaway caucus. This is no time for the race card to be pulled. Our country is suffering in every category and we do not need this added hate on a simmering society and force them to the edge of a race war, a class war by members of our elected Congress, what a shame!

Many of these hate mongerers and racist have lived through some tough times in their lives, many have seen the ravages of a racist society unleashed. They should have learned from historys blindness. Instead of leading us away from more hatred and violence they are dragging us back to a frightening era, I would prefer to leave behind!

We should drop any thoughts of hate, we should be uniting and this caucus is only encouraging division. In this arena there is no need to divide the races, the debate should go forward regardless of our skin color. We are America, we are supposed to be one, not many colors. These members of Congress if left to spew this violence unchecked may surely cause greater hatred and perhaps a new class warfare….the shame of it all!

While I would be remiss not to mention one of my favorite people in the political world belongs to this rogue CBC! I was only hoping this man would become our next President of the United States! If he continues to be associated with this racist hate group which has hijacked a great portion of our Congress, I will lose confidence in this man whom I thought was above the fray!

Allen West, Florida Congressman, Republican 22nd District, you must resign from this caucus, not say you may reconsider your membership!
