And The Beat(ing) Goes On Part 28-- Union Thugs Riot in Washington State

After the Jimmy Hoffa speech calling for Unions to take out Tea Party and Republicans with no rebuff from the White House, we now see the agenda for the coming months and during the election time. Longshoreman's Union Thugs rioted today because a new terminal was going to be built some miles away but was not going to be operated by Longshorman Union Thugs. Still no word from the administration on the riots.  Be sure that Holder and the DOJ will do nothing to hold the Union Thugs accountable. In all probability they will find a way to stop the new terminal from being built ala Boeing's move to "right to work" State of South Carolina which would have created more than 2000 immediate jobs. Meanwhile this job creating project by PRIVATE ENTERPRISE has been put on hold.
LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) — 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.

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. (Why were no arrest made as this was an act of pure terrorism. Oh but wait, they aren't Tea Party terrorist, they are UNION THUGS, part of Obama's "ARMY".)

The International Longshore and Warehouse Union believes it has the right to work at the facility, but the company has hired a contractor that’s staffing a workforce of other union laborers.

Thursday’s violence was first reported by Kelso radio station KLOG.

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.” (You can bet on that!  It's a warm up as part of the well paid "army" which supports Obama. )
One sergeant was threatened with baseball bats and retreated, Duscha said. “One officer with hundreds of Longshoremen? He used the better part of discretion.”

Not a peep from the LSM on this outrageous disregard of the law.  But then remember these are part of the ARMY, ready to march for Obama according to another Union Thug named Hoffa.

Ya, Ticker, this is apparently the CIVILITY Obama calls for; unless it's aimed at Republicans, then it's open war of disgusting insults and innuendo with him standing there congratulating the insulter.

Imagine...a Union Thug sympathizer in a president. My GOD>

Maggie also wrote on this as well but outside a few bloggers I have heard zilch on this fiasco. You can count on it that nothing will be said by the WH or Holder on this outrageous action. Thugocracy is their style.

I find it incredible that no one was arrested.

Do you believe that had they been arrested that they would have been prosecuted? Yea, kinda like the Black Panthers with clubs at the polls. Yep, dream on.
