    !! SEIU Claiming Tea Party Attendees attacked THEM.

    Watch Ken interviewed about the attack he suffered at the hands of an SEIU union member. Many youtube videos have surfaced corroborating his story, as have many eye witness accounts.

    No go read the email and watch the youtube video below where SEIU accuses average citizens of attacking THEM.
    (email pasted below)

    This is absolutely UNBELIEVABLE. I told myself I would stop forwarding emails to my blog, but I can't help it this time.

    During the Ron Paul campaign they said we were spammers, not real people. After the Ron Paul campaign they called us threats to law enforcement with the now retracted MIAC report. And now there people are standing up in such numbers that they have to try and demonize average folks upset about our dictator in chief and the tyrants claiming to be our representatives.

    These are real people. Do the recipients of such emails actually beleive this propaganda bologna?

    First they ignore you (early Ron Paul 2008 Presidential Campaign)
    First they laugh at you (Ron Paul 2008 Presidential Campaign)
    Then they fight you (um.. now? MIAC center / fusion centers /DHS)
    Then you win.

    Retake YOUR state in 2010. Run for office, take your power back.

    Subject: An Urgent Message about Healthcare Reform Town Hall Meetings on Behalf of SEIU

    Dear Catherine,

    Things are turning ugly. Town halls, which typically serve as open, safe environments to ask questions of elected officials, have degenerated into violent shouting matches.

    Last week in St. Louis, Missouri, a reverend and staff member of SEIU was assaulted at a town hall. The incident, along with a town hall in Tampa, Florida, has been all over the radio and cable news shows. GOP operatives are rushing to paint it as SEIU "thug" violence. That couldn't be further from the truth.

    Watch the video with footage from these events:

    Cable news channels are broadcasting images of neighbors turning against one another in chaotic, sometimes frightening town hall meetings. Incited by extremist radio and TV hosts, "teabagger" protesters are yelling and chanting talking points that span from radicalism to racism.

    Enough is enough. Click here to sign a pledge for civil, honest debates about health care reform:

    It is extremely discouraging to see people treating one another like this. And it's a reminder of how GOP scare-tactics ("the government will kill the elderly,!" "the government will choose your doctors!" or "the government will ration care!") use fear to overpower the truth.

    We are at a turning point. To succeed, we will continue to elevate this conversation, distinguish ourselves from the opposition, and speak to our fellow Americans with respect and dignity. Where we disagree, we'll invite discussion. And when we agree, we'll work together toward a solution.

    That's the only way we're going to solve our nation's health care crisis. When it comes to quality, affordable health care, the stakes are too high to let shouting run the show.

    Thanks for standing up,
