YOU – MUST – READ Michelle Malkin’s column today on Big Labor Thug Bullies and how they threaten non-Union volunteers. Not just in the case of the Boy Scout clearing a walking trail earlier this week, but repeatedly, over-and-over again. Here’s a taste:
Last June, union officials in Baraboo, Wisconsin filed a complaint against volunteer firefighters who built sandbag barricades to protect the city from record flooding. They whined that city Department of Public Works employees should have been called first and demanded overtime pay (for work they didn’t do) to compensate them.
Yes, kids, the city was knee-deep in water and the government union got mad that other people scrambled to work together in an emergency to put sand in bags, save homes, and help their neighbors.
SEIU president Andy Stern in Washington speaks for all of Big Labor when he describes his organizing philosophy: “[W]e prefer to use the power of persuasion, but if that doesn’t work we use the persuasion of power.” President Obama, who has made national service an administration priority, has been and will continue to be silent about the Big Labor bullies who make public enemies of Scouts with trash bags and hoes.
“Nation of Cowards” indeed. And we’re being lead by one, apparently.
