Denounce SEIU Violence Against Peaceful Protesters

If you’re in the neighborhood, show up to take a stand against union thuggery and Obama’s buddies in the SEIU!

More info here

The protest is to demand justice for Kenneth Gladney, an African-American conservative who was brutally beaten by 4 individuals, at least 2 of whom were identified as SEIU representatives. The beatings included racial slurs and required hospitalization of Mr. Gladney.

  2. 21.John,

    Congratulations! With the historic American Healthcare Reform Act being signed into law today by PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, we won’t have to worry about filing bankruptcy or dying prematurely because we can’t afford access to decent healthcare; or being unfairly booted off by the multi-billion dollar insurance company tactics due to pre-existing conditions (which we all have!).

    Unfortunately, like Civil Rights, Womens Voting and the plight of the unemployed, our party, the Republican party, was again on the wrong side of history. I am going to be writing about this on my Blog (www.RepublicansForObama.org). I hope you follow it, and share it with other Republicans, as I am going to continue to fight to make OUR party more reflective of the people and values of today’s America — not yesterday’s. Here’s a brief excerpt; feel free to disagree, but I still respect your views as a fellow Republican — although I’m NOT of the lunatic ilk.

    ‘This is truly a fundamental fight about the character of our nation. That is, what kind of nation are we going to be in the 21st century..??

    According to Newt Gingrich: “This will not stand. Sunday was a vote…unworthy of the United States of America.” A sentiment that directly brings into stark contrast the question of the character of our nation. Whether, we will be a Hobbesian nation – where life is solitary, hard, nasty, brutish and short — whose values are defined by the ilk of Newt Gingrich, Rush Limabaugh and Michelle Malk — a modern Sparta ruled by corporate overlords, unregulated free markets, social darwinism and endless warmongering. Or whether, like every other industrial wealthy nation in the world; and as our Founding Fathers challenges us “to form a more perfect union,” we will be a Lockean nation – progressive, enlightened, humane and balanced; concerned about the health and welfare of our citizens and the global competitiveness of our businesses…

    Tea Party protesters in a crowd backed by Republican lawmakers called Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) a “nigger” and at least one protester spat on Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO). The flagrant violation of Congressional decorum when one Republican Congressman loudly shouting “baby killer!” to a fellow Congressman (who was actually trying to ensure no federal funding for abortion under Healthcare reform) on the floor of the House of Representatives…are the same kinds of people who think of themselves as “patriots” and dutifully go Bible-toting on Sunday mornings (Luke 23:34). The Wingnuttery of the conservative Lunatic Fringe most decidedly do not reflect the “character” of the nation I love. I want to raise my children in a society that honors the debt of my ancestors from the very first inception of this great nation. A debt built on the sweat of their backs, the blood in their veins, and often by their very lives – sometimes in gross injustices. I want to raise my children in a society that honors the values of the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. You know, provide for the general welfare and domestic tranquility; a life in the pursuit happiness; we hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal. I mean, you need to be healthy in order to live freely and pursue happiness, don’t you..?? Sometimes I wonder, are these people truly reading the same Bible, and about the same Jesus (Matt 5:3-14), and the same Declaration of Independence that I’m reading..??’

    Still, I am proud that, at least for today, the TRUE character of our nation prevailed. One of care and concern for the health and well-being of ordinary working American families & children; and the for global competitiveness of our small business that no longer will be burdened with unsustainable healthcare costs.

    (By the way, remember that Kenneth Gladney ended up having to BEG for donations to pay his healthcare bill from his beatdown because he was unemployed from being recently laid off with no health benefits..?? That can’t happen anymore — even for stupid conservatives like Gladney who are too stupid to recognize his own ignorance and best interests.)
