Thugs: Andy Stern, SEIU and their connection to Obama
The mere suggestion that Barack Obama's history is replete with a string of murky associations with dangerous extremists is enough to send the Left, the pragmatists, and the 'moderates' spinning in an endless cycle of dizzying indignation. Yet even his present close associations are highly problematic.
Andy Stern, who heads the workers' union known as SEIU, is the most frequent visitor to the White House. Obama has admitted on numerous occasions that he collaborates with Stern and the SEIU on a regular basis. He even stated during the 2008 campaign that he has 'worked his entire life with Stern and the SEIU on a regular basis.
All Americans should become informed about Andy Stern and SEIU. But not from their official website or from the mainstream media, where you will get the propaganda.
Several vital facts should be noted.
First, SEIU thugs attacked citizens who attended Town Hall meetings with their elected representatives last summer, seriously injuring several who required hospitalization. The thugs never threatened anyone beforehand. They simply showed up at the meetings to intimidate town hall attendees and then unleash their violence on the unsuspecting citizens by surprise.
SEIU and ACORN thugs also blocked the entrance to at least one Town Hall meeting, refusing to grant entrance to the constituents within the representative's district.
The citizens who attended these Town Hall meetings were unarmed, many of whom were retired and elderly. Yet they exercised one of their most sacred rights in this free society--to confront elected representatives and hold them accountable, this time on the highly unpopular ObamaCare bill.
Second, interestingly, Andy Stern and SEIU helped to write the ObamaCare bill that our illustrious Congress critters admitted they never read. They didn't have to. They had been bought off by the special interests who wrote the bill, and that includes SEIU and the Apollo Alliance, which coordinates efforts between big government, big labor, big business, and big environment.
Apollo also helped craft the near-$1 trillion-dollar stimulus package for Obama.
Add into the mix Communist Van Jones, the Hugo Chavez admirer, and the 'Center for American Progress' which is run by a Leftwing extremist, and you have a healthcare bill that was conceived, nurtured, born, and bred in the bowels of American Leftwing extremism.
Thus, the hired guns of these organizations, the street-wise goons and thus of SEIU and ACORN, were charged with disrupting, intimidating, and even physically attacking citizens who care enough for the country to protest this frantic march toward Marxism.
Each of the organizations and individuals mentioned above have close ties with Barack Obama. Van Jones was hired as one of Obama's 'czars' until Patriots screamed to high heaven about a Marxist in the White House, resulting in Jones' departure, where he then wound up working for the Leftwing extremist Center for American Progress.
ACORN's connections with Barack Obama are well-known, going all the way back to his early days in Chicago as a community organizer, when Obama did legal work for the organization. They, too, were involved in the intimidation and violent threats/behavior against citizens at the Town Hall meetings.
And as for Andy Stern and SEIU, watch and listen closely to what came out of Obama's own mouth in this video.
Presently there is a massive, concerted effort on the part of the Leftwing, the mainstream media, the White House, and Democrats in Congress to portray Tea Party activists as dangerous, violent, right-wing extremists.
This, it would seem, is a perfect cover for the violence that is nurtured, encouraged, and perpetrated by the Leftwing organizations most closely associated with Barack Obama.
The death threats against Nancy Pelosi and Bart Stupak are actually but a drop in the bucket compared to the threats made against Patriots, Tea Party activists, and anyone else who dares to raise a voice of protest against this President.
