The mob captured in the following video calls to mind Massachusetts Congressman Michael Capuano’s recent instructions to unions: “Time to get a little bloody.”
If you don’t have the time or the stomach to watch, here are some of the highpoints:
“Shame! Shame! Shame!”
“Fuck you! Fuck you!”
All the while clubbing that cheesy tribal drum, backing Grothman up to the side of a building, harassing him across the lawn, cornering him.
Grothman was eventually rescued by Democratic Senator Brett Hulsey.
Barack Obama, whose Organizing For America helped organize this protest, has yet to comment, despite his recent platitudinous appeals to “make all our children proud and improve the national tone.” AFL-CIO union boss Richard Trumka has been likewise silent.
It all just depends upon whose ox is being gored, I guess.
