The video is questionable at best. I couldn't see the beginning of it. The right-wing is creating an atmosphere of violence.

1. Obama's SEIU thugs? Since when?
Buchanan just referred to SEIU thugs. When did they become Obama's? Maybe they want to hear in a town hall instead of having the dialogue being drowned out.

That's r/w framing I would change.

2. Yesterday...
I was having some fun on youtube making a lot of wingnuts mad on this video. The way it looks to me is the union member is pulling the black dude in the brown shirt off of a union member.

It just looks like he's breaking up the fight and somehow that makes him a thug?

I figur since they are right wingers they just take everything on faith like they are taught from a very young age as little bible thumpers.

30. Well, what in the hell was he doing on fox last night..
crying. From what I saw on the tape the SEIU guy was the only one who was hurt. Here we go again the Rightwing and their fake outrage. Look for more of this. The other day I saw the same thing as they were beating on the door to get in a meeting.

The guy who was complaining in the grey shirt claims they attacked him I saw that tape from many angles on other sites and he was in the corner trying to stop security from closing the door because it was overcrowded and he and his fruitcakes wanted to get in to stir up some more confusion. Some more lies of the lying, liars..

5. The Union announced they were going to go after conservatives at the meetings.
I figured that would go well. The unions are always so peaceful.

10. You're kidding, right?
I've watched that video three times, now, and the only person who looks like he was hurt is a guy in an SEIU shirt. And the RWers on camera are clearly being belligerent and provocative.

16. Nice anti-union horseshit
The right wing corporate shills are creating an atmosphere where anything could happen, even violence against a Senator or god forbid our President, and you are pushing the horseshit right wing talking point that the unions are the violent ones? Idiotic.

33. Typical corporate propaganda. Hey lackey. Show some proof.
Post some links proving violent union activities, or concede the argument. Try not to go all the way back to Jimmy Hoffa while your at it. Try to make it the last 15 years or so. This video proves nothing. The first part is conveniently missing.

I won't be back to check, because you won't find anything.

13. reminds me of the NFL or the NBA ...
when the Repugs say the "conservative" didn't do anything to warrant an assault ...

the officials in the NFL or the NBA see the person hitting back ... not the initial foul ...

Note, the video starts with the guy on the ground ... right?

19. Guarantee you that...
...this is part of the Repug Playbook - it's what's known as 'inciting to riot'. You yell and scream in people's faces until they decide to do something about it, then you holler 'cop' and they get the guy that 'just couldn't take it anymore'. Kinda like when an NFL referee throws a flag on the one that retaliates after he's been attacked.

Was this a great country, or what?

Edited on Sat Aug-08-09 11:40 AM by notadmblnd
the loud mouth one and the long haired guy with the cigarette in his mouth, on top of some one in tan pants and what looks like a blue SEIU shirt on the ground. I see the white guy in the SEIU shirt go after the ones on top of the guy on the ground. How is the SEIU reps thugs?

I do know the SEIU has received death threats and I also know that they are recruiting organizers. If you want to get involved go to their web page and apply.

21. A few observations from the video.
Edited on Sat Aug-08-09 11:43 AM by Wizard777
The GOP brown shirts are actually wearing brown shirts. At the beginning of the video. The blue shirt guy that the brown shirt guy is accusing of attacking him is on the ground. The brown shirt is still standing and being pushed away from the blue shirt on the ground by another Blue Shirt. The blue shirt on teh ground is much bigger than the brown shirt standing. So I can't see how the brown shirt is the total pacifist victim he's claiming to be. If the brown shirt wasn't being aggressive. The other blue shirt wouldn't have had to push him away from the blue shirt on the ground he was going after. So will the real aggressor please remain standing and refuse to back off.

24. Conservative comments
Looks like all the repugs are putting it on youtube:

Start from the bottom
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5Q3p6jClQM

erasercool (48 minutes ago) Show Hide Marked as spam Reply Right on Brother ! I'm right with you !

1kkyu (1 hour ago) Show Hide Marked as spam Reply Just wait until Obama has his national civilian security force.

ab1tchslap (1 hour ago) Show Hide Marked as spam Reply It's okay to shoot someone who's attacking you, right?

dentester (1 hour ago) Show Hide Marked as spam Reply Most people don't know that SEIU is affiliated with ACORN, which of course is Obama's personal army of thieves.

iprazhm (2 hours ago) Show Hide Marked as spam Reply SEIU is a Union whose members intimidate and use violence when no one is looking. Three members are now being charged with
assaulting a black vendor outside a townhall meeting. These folks are thugs and Obamazombies. They are not shy when it comes to using force. Democratic politicians are using SEIU, and other unions to intimidate citizens who protest. They also use them as fillers to take up space so protester can't get into townhall meetings. They are thugs for hire.

48. Only very stupid people would belive those talking points.They would destroy the nation than lose an
election. Look at them after 6mos of a dem president. Corporate stooges being deputized by the republican party as the only means still left to them to gain back political power. They will try to blame dems for every violent act they instigate. 2 videos showed up here just today to claim union thuggery as justification for the right to use violence...neither video proves anything.. These mobs have been lied to by Fox and friends and the republican leadership and have closed their minds to hearing the truth...they just reject it outright.

It's a sad state of affairs that the corporations have already started a civil war with stooges who believed their lies and will lose the most.

They think it's time to overthrow the government only because it's democratic...but it is really time to overthrow the "Economic Royalists", the corporations, the generational wealthy and their lobbyists. Gov. is the only thing that can save us from these profiteers.

29. This is a total setup. The bigger black guy seems to be a bystander
when you first look at the clip to the right and the slender black guy who says the other attacked him seems to be pushing the guy who attacked him. There are too many people lloking towards the camera and too many people who seem not too worried like the woman with the papers in her hand. Something does not look right about thei video. The guy who's yelling "You did this...you're going to jail seems like he trying out for a part in a play or movie. A little over done. Something just isn't right about this whole seen.

ahhhh.... yes, well. as i said: Righties are such weenies. i agree that it looks like the fat guy fell all over himself trying to get out of the way of those big scary guys in black tee-shirts. oooooo...... i must tell you though, that *Righties Always blame others of the very things they themselves are most guilty of!* did you get that? i know it's hard to put it intelligibly. *Righties Always blame others of the very things they themselves are most guilty of!*
uhhh... Righties blame other people for the stupid, evil, destructive, weenie things they themselves do most often. Better? i dunno. anyway, i think you know what i mean. yes? so, they're going around being big loud stupid bullies & some big scary Liberals!!! walk over to them... & the Righties try to get away w/o just turning tail & Running. but they fall over their own shoe laces & look dumb so they start whining that the Lefties "pushed" them around. why are we even reading this? where did it come rom & why is it posted here? ok. i confess. it was like a train wreck & i just had to look. hmmmm. looks like a train wreck to me. over & out, Roger.
