Union Boss Acts like Union Thug

Union Boss Acts like Union Thug

“It’s creepy. I still hurt every time I see it,” said South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley (R) of the piñata ensconced with her likeness that was bashed about by outgoing South Carolina AFL-CIO president Donna Dewitt.

“Hit her again! Give her another whack,” came additional cheers from fellow union degenerates taking pleasure in the beating given to the de facto governor via piñata, all of which was captured on video, clearly demonstrating the thuggish behavior commensurate with being a union member.

In addition to not offering Haley an apology for the mobster-esque behavior exhibited on the video, Dewitt said she was happy with what she did at her retirement party. In fact, after the piñata had hit the table, thus indicating the whacking should have ended, Dewitt continued to beat it with a metal bat with the fervor applied to Joe Pesci in the waning scenes of Casino – overly gratuitous and demonstrative of a lack of civility possessed by the union chief.

“It makes my heels sharper and I keep on kicking,” said Haley, who added that she would not stop taking on the unions or the Democrats. Haley took the high road by noting the strengths of South Carolina in terms of businesses expanding and moving to the Palmetto State, not just domestically, but from Mexico and even China. “We’re doing something right.”

“We are open for business,” said Haley, adding that South Carolina is attracting research and development firms, IT and pharmaceutical businesses as well as building planes, cars and ATVs.

Yet, in spite of Haley’s calm demeanor, it does not detract from the union’s bullying tactics. “Wow. I wonder if the unions think this kind of thing will make people take them seriously,” she said.

Dewitt’s overzealous assault on the Haley-faced piñata also begs the questions: where is the outrage from the Indian-American community? Where is the outrage from the Sikh community? Where is the outrage from the NOW gang? Where is lefty-lawyer Gloria Allred rushing to Haley’s side to sue the deep-pocketed AFL-CIO?

Oh, right – Haley’s fatal flaw: she’s a conservative Republican and a one-time TEA Party-backed conservative at that. Forget the fact that Haley endorsed moderate Mitt Romney early in the primary process when there more conservative candidates from which to choose.

Imagine the outcry if a conservative organization launched such an attack on a Barack Obama piñata. There would be holy hell to pay as Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and their gang of race hustlers descends upon whatever entity dared to behave in such a manner. But it’s all in the name of good natured fun – just ask Dewitt. “It was all fun and games,” Dewitt told The Huffington Post.

Haley will survive this de facto physical and real emotional attack, just as she did a week ago when the victim of a racial slur. The AFL-CIO will continue to lose membership as their demands upon corporate America become more and more unreasonable, as more states become right to work environments and as card check continues to be supported by union bosses wanting to take privacy rights away from their rank and file.

Union thuggery must cease and civil discourse must be introduced to their lexicon and behavior.
