“And so it begins…” Unions wage violence in Washington state

Well, it appears Da Unions heard Obama and Biden loud and clear, and are willing to become the Demokraten Partei SturmabteilungSee this first shot across the bow:
LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) — Hundreds of Longshore workers stormed the Port of Longview, overpowered security guards, damaged rail cars and dumped grain at the center of a labor dispute that also stopped work at four other ports on Thursday, officials said.
Six guards were detained for a couple of hours after at least 500 Longshoremen broke down gates about 4:30 a.m. and smashed windows in the guard shack, said Longview Police Chief Jim Duscha. He called the detained guards “hostages.”
No one was hurt, and nobody has been arrested. Most of the protesters returned to their union hall after cutting brake lines and spilling grain from a car at the EGT terminal, Duscha said. They also pushed a private security vehicle into a ditch.
Notice the part in bold.  If your local Tea Party group were to go to a local office of a political party, or a business who visibly and vocally supports a particular political party, and ransacked it, vandalized it, and take “hostages,” your local Tea Party members would be broken, bleeding, arrested, and appearing before the magistrate on a bail hearing so fast your head would spin.
But since we’re talking about the Union, they can commit physical violence, property damage, and hostage taking.  WITH IMPUNITY.
Do you think these Union goons would have felt so empowered if Obama and Biden hadn’t given it their implicit sanction this past Labor Day?  Let me tell you why their words matter and why their positions are such a Bully Pulpit:
The government is the potent omnipresent teacher. For good or ill it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. To declare that the end justifies the means – to declare that the government may commit crimes – would bring terrible retribution.
- Justice Louis D. Brandeis
Obama and Biden are leading by example; when they approve such behavior, they are encouraging it.
And from The Blaze, we have this additional point:
“We’re not surprised,” [Longview Police Chief ]Duscha said. “A lot of the protesters were telling us this is only the start.”
