Check out this video of not-so-peaceful union protesters in California–here (via the California Republican Party) and at The Political Teen–mobbing a lone pro-Schwarzenegger woman on Thursday who supports union reform initiatives on next week’s ballot.
Even the “security guard” (that’s her in the photo below in the middle of the screen with the orange vest) piled on and helped ripped up the poor woman’s signs.
I’m sure if it were the other way around, the national network news shows would be running the full video near the top of their broadcasts. But who needs ‘em anymore?

The California Conservative has the story covered.
Local KCAL9 reporter Carter Evans in Los Angeles:
Opponents tried to hit her with their signs, and some blocked news cameras as she argued her point. The crowd turns quickly, grabbing her signs and tearing them up, even a woman wearing an orange security vest angrily rips up the Vote Yes signs.
Someone wearing a ‘Unite Here’ T-shirt reaches down from the stage and grabs the victim’s cap off, and she has to reach back to grab it back. And, I saw at least one person put her hands on the victim.
So there we have it in living color: the unhinged union Left’s whatever-it-takes protectionism. “Whatever” meaning pushing. Shoving. Destroying property.
Squelching free speech. And intimidating women.
The California Republican Party writes:
While $115 million has been spent by public employee unions to oppose the reform initiatives and promote a message that the voices of their members will be silenced if Prop 75 passes, an angry mob of dues paying union members showed what little respect they have for free speech by physically attacking a woman who spoke out in support of the governor’s reform initiatives.
…Whipping the crowd into a frenzy was none other than Speaker Fabian Nunez, who was a featured speaker at the rally in Pershing Square. At the very least, Nunez – a former union organizer himself – has a duty to issue a public apology to this woman on behalf the union bosses who control him. That is, unless the Speaker believes that violence and thuggery are acceptable forms of public expression.
Call Speaker Fabian Nunez’s office today and DEMAND THAT HE ISSUE A PUBLIC APOLOGY TO GENEVIEVE PETERS.

And remember these images of union thuggery from the 2004 campaign:
I’ll have much more next week.
