I’m not going to make it to CPAC this year; too busy in the office. This headline, though, really makes me wish I could attend: “Big labor plans ‘Occupy CPAC.’” That’s right–union goons are going to try to interfere with the conservative gathering. The D.C. AFL-CIO sent a call out to its members:
What do Wisconsin Governor SCOTT WALKER, presidential candidates MITT ROMNEY, NEWT GINGRICH, RICK SANTORUM and House Budget Committee Chair PAUL RYAN have in common?
They all represent the greed of the wealthy 1% and they’ll all be at the 2012 Conservative Political Action Conference.
WE’VE HEARD ENOUGH FROM THE 1%!
Join the rally featuring tents, an inflatable fat cat, puppets, “candidate Walmart,” and more to
LET THE VOICES OF THE 99% BE HEARD!
Friday, February 10, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel (2600 Woodley Rd at Connecticut Ave NW), by the Woodley Park Metro Station
Coordinated by the Metro Washington Council AFL-CIO
Disgusting. Note that the AFL-CIO is one of the few remaining groups that are not too proud to associate themselves with the Occupiers. David Freddoso reminds us what happened last time the union goons decided to disrupt a conservative event:
You may remember what the union-aided Occupiers managed to do at the D.C. conference center in November. When conservatives staged a conference there, they banged on the windows, physically harmed at least one old woman, blocked local traffic, and used children as human shields. Much of the action was caught on tape.
Watch for more of the same at CPAC.
