Typical Tea Party propaganda about unions being bad and business owners good. Part of their stance that worker rights, minimum wage, and all regulations against corporations are bad. If the tea party is real why don't you run as a 3rd party instead of a weak faction within the Republican Party?

Well, there are bad apples in all types of organizations
I think you're missing the point. For the last 2 years or more, the US media and Democrat party demonized the tea parties as extreme, violent racists. Even when they're probably among the most non-violent protests ever seen in America and examples of racism are few and far between?
Yet, these leftists can battle in the streets with riot police and take people hostage without any of the same condemnation or hand ringing from the MSM. I think it's pretty safe to say at this point, that our media is nothing more than the attack arm of the Democrat party.
The International Longshore and Warehouse Union believes it has the right to work at the facility, but the company has hired a contractor that's staffing a workforce of other union laborers.
Hundreds of angry longshoremen stormed through a grain shipping terminal in Longview, Wash., early Thursday and held security guards at bay while descending on a disputed train full of grain, cutting brake lines and dumping cargo.
The predawn labor protests came after a clash with police Wednesday in which hundreds of longshoremen blocked railroad tracks near Vancouver, Wash., to prevent grain cargo from reaching an export terminal 45 miles farther west. In that protest, they far outnumbered officers, pelting police with rocks and spraying them with pepper spray, police said.
The call for mobilization hit the International Longshore and Warehouse Union's Facebook page Thursday morning: "Call out the troops, we're going on a road trip!" one union member wrote.

You guys realize that for every example posted about an injustice from the other side of the aisle, there is an example to the contrary form the opponents side, thus making all of this tit for tat futility. I think most of us know this too. So when we post this kind of stuff, we are just stirring the pot no? The 'us and them' should be those in control and us, not us and us. And 'those in control' are both gov and corps, not just one or the other. Maybe some enjoy making other fellow citizens cringe, but what value does it have?
