Yesterday there were many pro-union rallies in the country intended as a show of solidarity with Wisconsin. Among them, Lansing, Michigan:

LANSING – Some 2,000 union members and supporters from across Michigan rallied at the state Capitol building today to support Wisconsin’s public employee unions and against what they called corporate-sponsored Republican attacks on working people.

That included Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero, who fired up the crowd with a campaign-like, pro-union welcome speech.

“I can understand why Thomas Jefferson said a little revolution now and then is a good thing,” said Bernero to loud cheers. He was the losing Democratic gubernatorial candidate last fall.

“The assault on unions, the assault on the public employees is nothing less than an assault on the American people.”

Jefferson was correct, which I suppose is why there were so few blue counties in the 2010 Michigan gubernatorial election.

Speaking of assaults on the American people… this morning a Tea Party member from Michigan, who went to the pro-union rally in Lansing mentioned above, sent this video. As you can see, the solidarity with Wisconsin was strong with at least one of the pro-union protesters — “new tone” be damned. (language warning)

Somebody needs an intervention and a mandatory two-week inpatient treatment at HW & Bubba’s National Institute for Civil Discourse.
