Union thugs wearing SEIU t-shirts beat black conservative activist at St. Louis town hall meeting

From #TCOT Report

Eyewitness account of union thugs beating black conservative activist

August 6, 2009
St. Louis, Missouri

I am a friend of Kenneth Gladney, who was attacked this evening at the Russ Carnahan town hall meeting. I was at the town hall meeting as well. I witnessed the entire melee. Kenneth was approached by a SEIU representative as Kenneth was handing out “Don’t Tread on Me” flags to other conservatives. The SEIU representative demanded to know why a black man was handing out the “Don’t Tread on Me” flags. The SEIU member then used a racial slur against Kenneth, then punched him in the face. Kenneth fell to the ground. Another yelled racial epithets at Kenneth as he kicked him. Kenneth was also brutally attacked by two other men who are SEIU members and an unidentified woman. The three men were clearly SEIU members, as they were wearing t-shirts with the SEIU logo.

They punched Kenneth in the face and kicked him in the back and his head numerous times. Mr. Gladney was beaten badly. One assailant fled on foot. Three others were arrested. Kenneth is currently at St. John’s Mercy Hospital being treated for his many injuries. Mr. Gladney was merely expressing his freedom of speech by handing out flags. He in no way provoked anything, as evidenced by the fact that three people were arrested. We hope that Ken recovers from these injuries, however he is in great pain at this time. I am Mr. Gladney’s friend and attorney. We will be pursuing legal action at our disposal. This was a truly senseless hate crime carried out by racist union thugs.

Mr. Gladney is a tea party supporter and conservative activist, although he subscribes to no particular political party. We are calling on the SEIU, Representative Carnhan, and President Obama to condemn the racist actions of these thugs. In the days to come, we will be investigating who these thugs actually work for and how strong their alliances to other various left-wing organizations may be.

We hope the St. Louis Tea Party and Tea Party organizations around the country will protest the SEIU offices in every major city across America to expose the These strongarm actions must stop.

David B. Brown

Remember, these thugs represent the organization that virtually resides in the White House and advise President Obama on nearly every form of policy. Free speech under attack, freedom of assembly met with brutal attacks by left-wing thugs, the President calling on his left-wing allies to turn in those with whom he disagrees. Is this the change America voted for?

Cabot, AR–Recess Rally

Originally posted on Boot Berry

UPDATE: Curtis Coleman, who many consider the frontrunner for the GOP nomination for the 2010 AR Senate race, will speak at this event.

Marion Berry hasn’t scheduled any interaction with constituents during the August Recess. Polls have shown Arkansas voters DON’T support Obama’s plan to nationalize our health care industry. So we must do something to convince him that we’re serious. That’s why I’m organizing the Cabot, Ar Recess Rally, to be held simultaneously with other rallies across the nation at local offices of US representatives. Together, we can make our voices heard. We can turn the tide and stop the Obama-Reid-Pelosi runaway train bound for government-run health care.

I’ve spoken with City Hall and the Cabot Police Department and we’re clear to hold the Recess Rally outside of Rep. Marion Berry’s Cabot office at 12:00 noon on Saturday, August 22, 2009.

I’d like to have an organizational meeting to get ideas for what others would like to see at this rally on Thursday, August 13 in the evening at a location to be determined. If you have ideas, or would like to speak at the rally, please make plans to attend this meeting.

Contrary to White House and Democratic leaders’ misleading remarks, this is not organized by the Republican Party or insurance industry lobbyists. I haven’t spoken with them and they’ve made no attempts to contact me regarding this rally. This IS a grassroots movement and its success depends on you and me. As such, we have no advertising budget so please help spread the word. Tell your friends, neighbors, and coworkers to join us to stop nationalized health care in its tracks!

Please RSVP and let me know if you’d like to speak and/or volunteer at this event by completing the form below.
