Recently NewsBusters reported how major media networks played down the violence from union protesters in Michigan and called that violence "voicing their anger" when they did deign to even mention it.
Now we see other things the mainstream media are avoiding talking about... threats publicly spoken by union protesters trying to prevent Michigan Governor Rick Snyder from signing the right-to-work bill, passed by both the Michigan Senate and House, into law. The new law prevents unions from forcing nonunion members to pay dues.
Via CapCon, who provides the video that will be shown below:
A speaker at a union protest against right-to-work legislation said if Gov. Rick Snyder signed the bill he would get "no rest" and that protesters would be at his "daughter's soccer game." (Video below).
The Rev. Charles Williams II made the comments Tuesday to loud cheers before a group of thousands of union workers. After his promises to harass Gov. Snyder, he introduced Rep. Richard Hammel, D-Mt. Morris Township, and House Minority Leader Tim Greimel, D-Auburn Hills. Williams is a Detroit-area pastor and left-wing activist.
Gov. Snyder later that day signed a bill into law making Michigan a right-to-work state. One of his daughters is a 16-year-old high school student.
"Just know one thing, Rick Snyder: You sign that bill, you won't get no rest," Williams said. "We'll meet you on Geddes Road. We'll be at your daughter's soccer game. We'll visit you at your church. We'll be at your office.
"Because Michigan workers will not take it laying down — by any means necessary!" he said.
Geddes Road is where the Snyder residence is located.
No matter what side of the issue, right-to-work or union pay-to-work, children's events and church events, should be off the table.
If a Tea party protester made that type of threat, wouldn't the mainstream media be all over it?
