Waterloo Indeed: Black Protester Beat By Union Thugs

Sphere: Related Content

The Democrat's henchmen--the Service Employee's International Union (SEIU)--attacked a black man selling "Don't Tread on Me" flags for doing nothing more than practicing his God-given right to protest:

St. Louis County police say six people were arrested. Two of those were arrested on suspicion of assault, one of resisting arrest and three on suspicion of committing peace disturbances. Carnahan was gone when the ruckus started.

Kenneth Gladney, a 38-year-old conservative activist from St. Louis, said he was attacked by some of those arrested as he handed out yellow flags with “Don't tread on me” printed on them. He spoke to the Post-Dispatch from the emergency room of the St. John's Mercy Medical Center, where he said he was waiting to be treated for injuries to his knee, back, elbow, shoulder and face that he suffered in the attack. Gladney, who is black, said one of his attackers, also a black man, used a racial slur against him before the attack started.

“It just seems there's no freedom of speech without being attacked,” he said.
This is not going well for the Dems with Pelosi's appearance in Denver drawing a crowd that scuffled and events elsewhere ending in violence by unions against protesters.

Everyone knows that unions support Democrats and these videos will be used by the GOP in the midterms with devastating effect. I foresee this driving down support by at least ten points in the next week and if more events are marred by violence, we'll see a twenty point drop by the time Congress reconvenes in September.

The impact this is having on Obama is immeasurable at this point. It may well be his Waterloo.
