--In 2011, Michigan union activists threatened to “weaponize” government employees if Gov. Snyder followed through with his education reform agenda.

--At the same event, a representative of the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition prayed that God would “wither” the left’s political foes.

--In 2011, a 1st grade California teacher said the home addresses of billionaires should be made public, but likely not to add them to her Christmas card list.

The list could go on and on. We didn’t even include SEIU, the Teamsters or the Longshoremen.

All of these people are tied directly to unions or their activities. And union employees have the gall to complain about “the silent treatment” from bosses?

Unionists would tell you these are just examples of them simply exercising their First Amendment rights. And it’s everyone else who’s the bully.
