Speaking truth to power - Andrew Breitbart to bussed-in Trumka goons

Andrew had the honor of introducing Sarah Palin when she gave the speech I posted about earlier. He was heckled by a group of SEIU union members who had been bussed in to the event.

From Breitbart's Big Government:

Repeat to the TrumkaObama Class War Cult: Go To Hell
The contrast could not have been greater.


Last night, I was at the Jacksonville Landing, speaking at a rally held by the First Coast Tea Party that was keynoted by Florida Gov. Rick Scott. The weather was gorgeous with temperatures in the mid to high 70s and the mood of the patriots gathered there matched the sunny climate. There were skits and laughter amid the speeches that dealt with the solemn issue of fiscal responsibility.

This morning, I made my way from Jacksonville to Atlanta to Memphis to Chicago and then on to the icy Wisconsin war zone. The temperature hovered around freezing as I arrived in Madison. Bitter cold rain gave way to snow but that didn't stop thousands of Wisconsinites from coming out to make a stand and hear from a number of great speakers including the woman I was privileged to introduce, Sarah Palin.

But there was another group also there to greet us; the shock troops sent by Richard Trumka and president Obama's Organizing for America. This was my second trip to Madison in the last couple of months and the defeats that the union's leadership have suffered in that time have plunged these losers into an even more animalistic state of frenzy. Still stinging from last week's election reaffirmation of Gov. Scott Walker's policy of requiring public sector unions to face some of the economic realities that the rest of us have to deal with, the counter protesters both homegrown and bussed in them were louder, ruder and more desperate than ever. Their goal is to be as intimidating as the Green Bay Packers offensive line and it's one of the only areas that they've had success.

Andrew goes on a bit and then concludes with these two paragraphs:

There may be those on the left who really want civil discourse. It's possible there are some who realize that our national debt is, in fact, out of control. There's a chance that sane debate is the actual goal of a number of self-proclaimed liberal activists.

But I didn't see any of those people in Madison on Saturday morning. I'm not going to pretend that I did. It was a mob, whipped up by the divider-in-chief and his cronies who live off of union dues and taxpayer funded handouts. And in case any of you in the back row missed it, I repeat -- go to hell.

These union people are so transparent in their actions. I hope they are aware of their collapse and enjoy every minute of cognitive dissonance. Yes, you have the White House, the Senate and the Media but your control is slipping through your hands like sand. Another two years? Another four? Then what are you going to do...
