Violence Breaks Out in Michigan Against Conservatives as Union Protests Rage

I guess it all depends on your point-of-view. Democrats were absolutely begging for just this sort of violence to break out during a TEA PArty rally in 2010; any TEA Party rally. THey would have pilloried the entire movement for one such instance. But when their sacrosanct Unions are involved, I guess it just can't get violent enough to suit them. "Blood in the streets if we dont' get our way!" Nice...really nice.

The Republican controlled Michigan legislature passed right-to-work legislation late Tuesday morning as union members loudly protested inside and outside of the Capitol in Lansing. Michigan Democrat Rep. Douglas Geiss threatened on the House floor this morning "there would be blood" if the legislation passed. Riot police have been on the scene since early this morning bracing for violence.

The Michigan House Democrats reiterated their threat on their Twitter page, but have since deleted it.
