A judge issued a restraining order against this group (an indication that they’re not playing with a full deck).
But they have a crusade. They’re true believers and will stop at nothing to get their point across.
Yesterday they stormed the Port of Longview which “plays an important role in economic development by creating jobs in manufacturing and international trade. It develops infrastructure to support these jobs at its marine terminals and industrial property, creating a positive economic ripple that strengthens the local community.” (Port of Longview website)
They held six guards hostage for hours, vandalized thousands of dollars worth of property, and dumped needed and valuable grain.
Who were these terrorists? Radical Muslims? Eco-Terrorists? Tea Party? No … it was the International Longshore and Warehouse Union!
- Of course no arrests were made!
- No mention of this domestic terrorist incident in the national news! (here’s a local report)
- No condemnation by any politicians!
In fact it’s only aluminum foil-hat-wearing basement bloggers like me reporting on this.
If this act of terrorism was carried out by any other group it would be national headlines. If it was the Tea Party demands for arrests and federal indictments would be immediate. I would have to go into my bomb shelter and lock the bank vault security door behind me. Other conservatives would be rounded up and sent to Guantanamo Bay (or did Obama shut that down like he said he would during his campaign … oh no, he didn’t. Yet another lie, but I digress)
These domestic terrorist organizations we call Unions have free reign to do and say whatever they like because they give money to politicians in both parties … it’s as simple as that!
Perhaps our war on terrorism needs to shift focus from the middle east to DC.
