Matthews just showed a clip of some "labor" guy in a shouting match with someone else

In Lansing yesterday.

Matthews says labor has some explaining to do about that.

Not sure who the target of the yelling guy was.

Does anyone know what that was about? I have this gut feeling it was a manipulated set-up to make labor look bad and Matthews seems to have bought into the story as played.

1. It was a protest. What's wrong with yelling?

If the Phelps family showed up at a pro-same sex marriage rally and started shouting their rot, would we be blaming people for reacting?

5. The clip shows the guy telling the reporter to get out of his face

repeatedly. Why was he saying get out of my face and why didn't he? Was the Fox reporter
trying to incite an incident? Furthermore he was from Fox he deserved to have his ass kicked. The labor movement got their heads cracked and many died at the hands of the Pinkerton thugs if it takes violence to save the unions, so be it.

10. I know but why did the Fox reporter continue getting

in their faces? Was he trying to incite a incident for the Hannity Show? Oh Fox wouldn't do that would they? The Republicans are screwing with peoples income and jobs you can't blame them for being pissed off. I pitty the Fox reporter that would show up at our picket line shoving a microphone and camera in our faces when we were on strike for 10 1/2 months back in 1996. It was only one guy anyway you can't condemn the whole labor movement for one guy. What about the Republican thugs that were planted to cause trouble for the Occupy people.

9. Tweety's full of crap as usual. The FOX News reporter tried to provoke a response and got more...

....than he bargained for. The union guy doesn't owe Tweety or anyone else an explanation for what he did.

Saw the FOX News reporter stating on an earlier show that he would meet the guy in a fair mixed martial arts fight. LOL!! He was having his butt handed to him and he wants a rematch??

14. Chris Matthews

 

is also the one scared Obama want compromise because of the crazy Lefties with the extreme Right wing Republicans. He believes that Boehner is a moderate and distinguishes him from the Tea Party. He also agrees with Ed Rendell on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Matthews wants Obama to cave because he sees that as saving the country from disaster.

I disagree with Chris Matthews. I don't think that you give away your principles for a bad deal, when the other side is blackmailing you. There are sometimes, that you have to hold your ground or the other side will do the same-thing again if they see that they can make you cave. This means even if you experience short term pain. Let me put it this way, if John Brown had not reacted the way that he did, would the slavery question have become an issue as it did? If Lincoln had not did any thing about the attack on Fort Sumpter, would the events of the Civil War had taken place? Getting the objective that you want, is not always sterile. If History was like Chris wanted it to be, then nothing would be accomplished. The other side will just keep bullying you and roll you over. The finding of this country, that he lives in, even came about through violence. So Matthews lives in an imaginary world.
