As you may or may not have heard, Michigan (Michigan!) passed a Right-to-Work law. Needless to say the Unions are, shall we say, a bit upset, and decided to storm an AFP tent and tear it down. Apparently they came at the tent with knives drawn (to tear the tent down, of course, not to intimidate or anything). One of them punched Steven Crowder. Am I hearing things here, or is one of the union thugs stating that someone has a gun, and then getting all tough guy?
Dana Loesch is raising funds to have the thug brought to justice. Glenn Reynolds has pledged 1000 dollars to the cause. I don’t know if there was really a gun in there but I would suggest any activist going up against unions be well armed, especially with less than lethal force. Don’t start anything, but I wouldn’t let them assault people and destroy property either. It should be noted that most defensive sprays contain a taggant, which helps police identify the perpetrator quickly. Most states laws are also pretty lenient when it comes to using force against unruly crowds.
It should also be noted that wise tactics suggest anyone coming at you with a drawn knife should soon find himself quickly in the unenviable position of realizing he’s just brought a knife to a gunfight. I’m wondering if that’s what happened here, and the arm person successfully got out of dodge (the wise move).
I agree with Glenn: “Zero tolernace for this crap.” Arm yourselves well.
