WARNING – Violence at the Capitol Tuesday?

Important!

A Link to the Outrageous Comments made by Democrat’s on the Senate floor is BELOW

All eyes will be on Michigan this week as this “Union blue state” will become the 24th Right to Work state. The final vote in the Michigan State Legislature will come Tuesday.

A friend of mine said to me “I am in a ‘suspended state’ as it just hasn’t entirely sunk in”. I totally agree!

This is monumental not only for Michigan but for the right to work movement.

And this is exactly why Unions and their Progressive allies will descend upon our Capitol Tuesday.

When “surfing” the Internet about this I came across some ominous information.

One particular Tweet stood out, Civil Disobedience training this Saturday at UAW Local 600 in Detroit. The Tweet identifies UAW 600 as the location for the training and also includes Occupy Detroit.

Other Tweets similar can be found using various hashtags: such as #NoRTWMI

I could not find anything on the UAW Local 600 web site, so either they are allowing it or doing it as a covert-type operation, but I did find these pictures, the claim is “Practicing peaceful protest”.  Additionally, law enforcement has received information that some are promising to make Michigan worst than Wisconsin”. Does anyone doubt that this may be tried as union thugs backed up by Progressives know that Michigan is pivotal? This is not a protest, but a pay back and a notice to other states who dare try to implement right to work in their state.

Furthermore, the fact that the eight protesters who were arrested at the Capitol this past Thursday have yet to be charged  It is my understanding … that the * prosecutor’s office  is still reviewing this matter,” 54A *District Judge Hugh Clarke Jr. said. “So they have not filed charges against you at this time.”

* Ingham County Prosecutor Stuart J. Dunnings III Endorsed by: United Auto Workers, Greater Lansing Labor Council (AFL-CIO) Michigan Education Association

*Endorsed by: AFL-CIO, 2012 UAW Reg 1-C MEA, MI Progressive Endorsements and the City Pulse, Lansing Progressive rag

A lack of prompt follow through has clearly only emboldened these rabble rousers, as the impression is that you can engage in unlawful conduct (disrupting a legislative session, etc.) without real consequences.

More pictures show that a number of people were brought in from out of state this past Thursday, like the protester from Ohio (a sheet metal worker…dressed…in a fireman’s uniform???).

When looking at the Tweets with the #NoRTWMI, you can see that legislators are using the hashtag. Just one example is my own term-limited House Rep Barb Bryum, who isn’t exactly a stranger to conduct which lacks decorum.  This is very troubling – lawmakers are making public comments to a specific audience – that’s the point behind using a specific hashtag. In doing so, they are contributing to further ginning people up. Is Ms. Bryum (or staff) aware of all of the discussion taking p lace among the users of that hashtag? If so, are the obvious plans being made, which are potentially harmful, being reported to the authorities?

Progressive legislators are fanning the flames on these types of action by their incendiary comments. I was in the Capitol Thursday when some of these incendiary remarks were being made on the Senate floor and heard by and directed toward union “activists” If your look at the Senate Legislative Journal you can read the outrageous comments from these legislators claiming everything from racism to criminality about these bills.

Furthermore, Democrat minority leader, Senator Whitmer appeared on the Fox News Show “On the Record” Greta Van Susteren’s show to repeat the lie that people were arbitrary removed from the Capitol. Unfortunately Ms Van Susuteren gave her a pass when she agreed! So much for “fair and balanced” and “journalists” doing their due diligence researching. You may see the interview HERE

Media bias has also helped to fuel anger.

By these actions, these organizations, legislators and those engaging in media bias will share responsibility for any potential violence or damage to our beautiful Capitol on this coming Tuesday!

Organizations planning to protest Tuesday:

Planned Parenthood

AFL-CIO/Working America

The Teamsters

The Michigan Nurses Association

Michigan Education Association

The Washtenaw Community Action Team

Rainbow Push Detroit

MoveOn.org

I know there will be Right to Work supporters, mostly seasoned activists, at our Capitol this coming Tuesday. However considering the climate – the rumored threats and organizations involved – I do not think this is a good time for anyone to be at the Capitol.

If you want to do something positive about this issue, give encouragement to your House Rep or Senator, if they voted YES, by calling and thanking them for that YES vote.

IF anyone who works at the Capitol, works downtown or is a risk taker bound and determined to go down on Tuesday, sees violence, intimidation, vandalism, or other unlawful behavior, you may call the Michigan state police directly at (517) 332-2521, to make a report.

Of course NEVER hesitate to dial 911

We will continue to keep you updated

Thank you for all you do, you are the heart and soul of our state.

    I hope the MI Capitol Building will be safe from any form of destruction and that our RTW supporters will remain out of harms way. I cannot be there due to medical issues.

      Mary, I hope so too however if there is any harm to anyone or damage..We know where the blame lies..

      “these organizations, legislators and those engaging in media bias will share responsibility for any potential violence or damage to our beautiful Capitol on this coming Tuesday!”

    I tried to read the “comments”, but it was in a foreign language–or gobblety gook form. Crazy! :(

    It is my fervent hope that everyone is safe on Tuesday . I know that those of you who will be unable to come will be with us in spirit.. Please do call your legislator and indicate your support. It will be difficult for them for sure. I am sure they will earn their money tomorrow. We can not reward the the temper tantrums of the unions. I firmly believe in their right to protest but not at the expense of the rights of those with a different opinion.

    Even if you are able to go tomorrow let your legislator know you will be out front. The union should not get their way just because they can get paid to take off from work. and make a lot of noise.
