You mix several issues in your OP. First you make references to Spanish reality mixed with the reality of the US, things are not the same and the
culture is completely different especially the history, but down to society and political spectrum, they are just not comparable, so half of the OP is
an incomprehensible haze for those that know a bit about the realities you are talking about.
Now, you call them communists, I think you are probably wrong. In Spain you have a general socialist system with tendencies to corruption but not as
capitalistic (or corporatist) as the US.
You are also a capitalist, you are the boss of your own business, to a point socialism or communism has less interest to you, unless you have
aspirations to advance social equality, or at least social equity (as in Justice, impartiality or fairness). As a business owner you are above the
average in the Spanish social scale (especially considering the number of unemployed today).
Considering that coercion and intimidation is easier that conversion or dialog and that probably only a few members of the mob understand the ideology
(that as I said probably isn't communism as you are attempting to pass it, but leftists never the less).. There aren't really unions linked to right
aligned parties. In any case the tactics are shared across the political spectrum, even the use of the police by the state is about coercion and
intimidation, more than order. MOBs in general are hard to control most unions have extensive plans and include minders to avoid infiltration by other
forces, like the right wing apologists, police force agitators or the extreme left anarchist that can easily create havoc in an orderly manifestation.
