SEIU Union Goons Storm Restaurant Where GOP Lawmakers Were Dining

How much longer are we Americans going to tolerate this thug like behavior from the so called “Progressive Liberal Left”?



From The Columbus Dispatch:

The volatility surrounding the collective-bargaining debate spilled into the night Wednesday when police were called to a German Village restaurant after a group verbally accosted a gathering of Senate Republicans.

After the vote on Senate Bill 5, seven Republican senators, including President Tom Niehaus, R-New Richmond, grabbed dinner at the Easy Street Cafe. As the lawmakers neared the end of their meal, a group of five to 10 union supporters angry about the passage of the bill hours before burst into the restaurant and began shouting.

The commotion eventually led to pushing and shoving with the restaurant staff and owner, before police arrived to calm the situation as a police helicopter hovered overhead. No senators were involved in the physical altercations, and no charges have been filed.

“It could have (gotten physical),” said Sen. Frank LaRose, 31, a Fairlawn Republican who served as a Green Beret. “The group was agitated and they were shoving the owner, and he had nothing to do with this.”

LaRose said it didn’t take special intelligence training to notice that while the lawmakers were eating, a woman walked past the window several times, poked her head in the door and got on her cell phone.

“It was planned,” LaRose said. “They gathered as a group and waited until they had about 10 people before they caused a disturbance.”

When the group burst into the restaurant, the woman, Monica Moran, deputy director of public affairs for SEIU District 1199, raised her hands in the air, yelled “Can I have your attention?” and then shouted “something nasty,” LaRose said. Soon after, the rest of the group of men and women joined in with a chant.

“They stormed through my dining room,” said George Stefanidis, owner of the Easy Street Cafe. “I told them they had to leave, and they wouldn’t.”

This type of outburst highlights the tactics used by unions to infiltrate the work place and intimidate workers to join. Are these the type of workers we want working for us at the public level, I think not. The unions goon squad arrived but arrested no one, why?

Since it appears that the unions cannot win lawfully, they get on the cell phone and call in the thugs. They burst into a private restaurant and disrupt law-abiding citizens with their chants and threats.

This is a primary example of old-fashioned union strong-arming. Jimmy Hoffa would've been proud of them. The union thugs will be slashing tires soon.

They cannot win lawfully or on the merits of the policy, so they want to win on intimidation. It worked for Hitler in Germany so I guess the Union Boss’ here in the US think it will now work for them.

There's a reason why they are referred to as goons

Although I don't agree with what they did, c'mon, you think the Repubs won "legally"? They paid off one vote and dismissed another. There is reason to be pissed.
