Union Protester In New Jersey: Chris Christie Is A Terrorist Who Would Shoot Workers

To be fair, you could go to any political rally over a certain size supporting or opposing just about any cause you could think of and find a few nuts in the crowd willing to say something inflammatory for the cameras.

But then, that didn’t stop MSNBC from cherry-picking a few nuts out of a given tea party protest and using them to brand the entire movement.

What you’re seeing is the last stand of the unions, and it’s an ugly thing. Private sector workers have been opting out of the unions for years now (over 600,000 did so last year alone) and the government unions are the last hope of organized labor.

And, if Ed Schultz is to believed, the progressive movement in general. The mutually-beneficial alliance between Democrats and the unions – where the unions pour money into Democrat coffers to see elected Democrats grow the government and hire more dues-paying government workers – is being threatened by the need to downsize government.

Children, when forced to grow up, are prone to throwing tantrums.
