Left-wing union violence continues to increase in America

A legislative battle in Michigan over “right to work” labor laws,which unions oppose, has led to calls for violence from unionofficials and one of their legislative supporters, and actual violenceby union supporters.

Fox News contributor Steven Crowder was punched in the face by apro-union protester, breaking one of his teeth, while anotherpro-union protester shouted “get the f— out of my face!”

Democratic representative Doug Geiss said:

“We’re going to pass something that will undo 100years of labor relations and there will be blood, there will berepercussions, we will re-live the battle of theoverpass.”

The “battle of the overpass” refers to a bloody 1937 confrontationbetween union organizers and Ford security guards. Terry O’Sullivan,general president of the Labor International Union of North Americathreatened supporters of the labor legislation: “We are going to takeyou on and take you out.”

The latter is reminiscent of the the call to violence and war againstthe Tea Party last year by Teamsters president James Hoffa, when heintroduced President Obama by saying: “We are ready to march. Let’s take these sons of bitchesout and give America back to an America where we belong.” Hoffa’scall to violence was, in fact, heeded two weeks later by hundreds ofmembers of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union members(ILWU) labor union, who violently attacked guards protecting anon-union grain terminal in the Port of Longview in Washington state.

In my opinion, the first important call for left-wing violence beganwith the 2006 Hollywood film “Death of a President” (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0853096/, which seemed to me to havethe purpose of inciting violence against President Bush. AfterPresident Obama was elected in 2008, mainstream news commentators suchas CNN’s David Gergen and Anderson Cooper were inciting violenceagainst Tea Partiers by referring to them with the epithet

Left-wing violence in America has been sporadic, though there has beena lot more in Europe, where it’s triggered countervailing right-wingviolence, particularly in Greece. In this generational Crisis era, wecan expect this kind of violence to continue growing. CBS News (Detroit) and Fox News

France urges immediate military intervention in Mali

France has urged rapid foreign military intervention in Mali after thecountry’s prime minister, Cheikh Modibo Diarra, was arrested andordered to resign by the army. The northern two-thirds of Mali isunder control of al-Qaeda linked jihadist groups, and France fearsthat if an Islamist state becomes firmly entrenched there, then itwill serve as a base for terrorist attacks on Europe, especiallyFrance.
