That is the nicest goon thug I've ever heard.
Incivility is fine as long as there is no discourse involved.
Really, "agitators" with opposing views??? Why are the union folks not agitators???And that's the way it is.
So then "our house" actually means to these goons, "my house".
Perfect, fake marshals at a fake protest supressing free speech.You really can't make this ridiculous shit up.
I want to know more about this training? And Meade's question was apposite, as it turned out, and not rude.Anyone CAN just put on an orange vest and say they're a marshal. Pfff.
Real marshals have cowboy hats. In Madison, they would, of course, wear the cheese hats. No big hat - no authority.
Tempts one to don an orange vest just to see if anyone notices or poses questions.
RIA, they'd skulk out a fake marshal in a sec. They wouldn't have their hands out waiting for someone to drop a dollar on it.wv: reper (Grimm Reper was the old German spelling)Cheers,Victoria
So, can the agitators from an opposing viewpoint train their own marshals and have competing marshaling going on? I think we need to determine volunteer marshal etiquette.
As relates to these protest, what the difference between a union poseur and a real cop in Madison? I don't know. I'm asking.
They were trained by the "Labor Temple"? That's a new one.
Oh, cute."keep people separated and not let our people engage them."Since the union slugs are the ones acting like Ernst Rohm's finest, no doubt they don't want any engaging. Those "agitators from an opposing view" bring their vidcams and record what actually happened and post it for all the world to see it.It was so much easier when media was centralized.Dare anyone ask if these "marshals" are in any way, shape, or form in breach of any law usurping what would seem to be a police function?(not that the union cops would enforce it...)
Labor Temple? Isn't that an offshoot of the People's Temple?wv: after: math
Wouldn't this make them vigilantes?btw-I wonder if these guys realize the personal liability they are assuming?
Tell him you're an admiral.
Actually, this seems pretty smart.An act of self-policing on the protest organizers, in hopes of keeping their people from doing something stupid in a face to face confrontation.
So an orange vest makes you a "marshall?" Is that the midwestern version? Marshalls wear badges, not orange vests.And they are there to keep the "opposing" view from a confrontation with the labor group? How the hell does that work? If an "opposition" protester gets in the face of a union thug, and the "marshall" intervens, well the "marshall" is simply another private citizen engaging in something that is probably unlawful.Also, I have been harsh on Ann for her lack of reporting on the various examples of intimidation and violence by the union sympathizers. This morning I read her post about the handcuffs on the doors, and her questioning of the reporters who are sympathetic to the protesters and the police who failed to exercise their duth.Kudos, Ann. It was a good post, and perhaps you will decide to dig a little deeper and see just exactly who is behind these protests and what dog they have in the hunt.
We don't need no stinking badges.
@Chef MojoLabor Temple? Isn't that an offshoot of the People's Temple?Heh. There has to be a Kool-aid joke in there somewhere, eh?
google 'labor temple'
Wow, I Googled the Madison Labor Temple, and what was their only "upcoming event" listed? Here it is:Troublemakers SchoolMadison Labor Notes event, with "State of the Unions" talks, poetry, cartoon/photo exhibit, 5 pm, 4/1 (free); and informational/organizing workshops, 9 am-4 pm, 4/2 ($25), Madison Labor Temple. RSVP: www.labornotes.org/madison. 770-8896 Madison Labor Temple
No separation of church and union?Since the Temple is in Jerusalem, would these be Labor Synagogues?
The TAA has been the main group organizing these protests and gathering volunteers to marshal the area. It started out with basically TAs doing the marshaling, and it has since branched off into other random people who want to get involved.
@bagoh - You mean "we don't need no stinking badgers!"(With apologies to Weird Al.)
