Got your attention?Good. Because it seems that unless a story has negative implications for the tea party no one (even Fox News) is going to make a stink about it.OnThursday morning, over 500 members of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (an AFL-CIO union) did something that should have been the top newsstory on every major news network in the country.A union worker blocks a grain train in Longview, Wash.,Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2011. Longshoremen blocked thetrain as part of an escalating dispute about labor at theEGT grain terminal at the Port of Longview.(APPhoto/Don Ryan)Hundreds of Longshoremen stormed the Port of Longview early Thursday, overpowered and held security guards, damaged railroad cars, and dumped grain that

is the center of a labor dispute, said Longview Police Chief Jim Duscha.Let us change that around a little and conduct a thought experiment. What if the event were described like this?Hundreds of Tea Party protesters stormed City Hall in Longview early Thursday, overpowered and held security guards, damaged office furniture, and dumpedfiles out of the Hall’s archives, said Longview Police Chief Jim Duscha.How would MSNBC, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, and even Fox News handle the story? Do you think there would be wall to wall coverage of this criminal activity being done by a battalion-sized crowd of tea partiers? How many talking heads and other assorted pundits would be weighing in about heated political rhetoric and how opponents of Obama’s presidency are directly or indirectly responsible for a “toxic climate” that resulted in this behavior?Five hundred people.Six guards were held hostage for a couple of hours after 500 or more Longshoremen broke down gates about 4:30 a.m. and smashed windows in the guardshack, he said. No one was hurt, and nobody has been arrested. Most of the protesters returned to their union hall after cutting brake lines and spilling grain from car at theEGT terminal, Duscha said.Five hundred people stormed a shipyard, held hostages – HOSTAGES – for a couple of hours, smashed windows and then calmly returned to their union hall after cutting brake lines on trains and spilling grain (aka destroying property). And NO ONE was arrested? Are you kidding me?What are we supposed to learn from this? Is it now okay to destroy property and literally take hostages as long as you roll 500 strong and belong to a union? Would anyoneelse get away with that without someone being sent to jail? What is going on in this country? Where is the outrage? This is not acceptable behavior if done by ONE person.This is 500 times worse!Police from several agencies in southwest Washington, the Washington State Patrol and Burlington Northern Santa Fe responded to the violence to secure thescene that followed a demonstration Wednesday.“We’re not surprised,” Duscha said. “A lot of the protesters were telling us this in only the start.”OH! It gets even better! This is only the start! What are they going to do next? Shoot the security guards instead? Or maybe simply beat them with the baseball bats andcrowbars they brought this time? Guns will come later, I guess. We can’t rush these things.Again, if one lone tea partier had done something remotely close to what these union thugs did on Thursday, there would not only be wall to wall coverage of it, the Leftwould use this one individual to prove that the Tea Party are nothing more than anti-government terrorists. They tried, and failed, to do just that with the Tucson shootings – too bad Loughner turned out to be more Leftist than tea party.This action by the ILWU is an outrage. It also isn’t some rogue group of thugs.The train was the first grain shipment to arrive at Longview. It arrived Wednesday night after police arrested 19 demonstrators who tried to block the tracks.They were led by ILWU International President Robert McEllrath, who said they would return.See that? The night before, Wednesday, some thugs – accompanied by the president of the union – were arrested for blocking the tracks. The next day they returned just likethe president of the union said they would. This time they came 500 deep.Just imagine if the head of a tea party group made a threat like that and the next day 500+ tea partiers showed up and committed an act of domestic terrorism like the uniongoons did on Thursday. We’d never hear the end of it.We shouldn’t hear the end of this, either. But it seems many people don’t even want to talk about it. For nearly three years we’ve been told that the tea party are violentextremists who are stoking … er, exactly the kind of thing the ILWU did on Thursday. This union actually did what the Left has been accusing the tea party of trying to do.What on earth is going on here?

The left's storm troopers and brown shirts, being run by the labor unions, will not intimidate!!! Every time they pull stunts like this, it only worksagainst them! There will be an election, and their enablers will be thrown out in about a year... watch for it, thugs!!!The media are the "three monkeys". FOX becomes more of a joke every day. "Real" news comes from the internet.

I agree with 'forget' .... I thought FOX news was the one still trying to be the 4th branch of government it was intended to be, but they're turning out to be just like the other whores in the business. America stands at the brink of destruction and the news media are on their knees praying to a picture of OBLAMER 5 times a day.

Wonder how many times this headline will be posted as truth because the lazy leftards were too busy fist-pumping to actually READ the full article.You're right, I haven't seen this ANYWHERE, thanks for uncovering the truth.

Unions have managed to change the workers' mindset to one of ownership of jobs, so that now it's a "you are taking my job"situation. I f you think you own the job it can lead to violence. This happens in business too, they call them lone gunmen.This is the evil that unions have brought us.

If I were a guard, I'd be bringing an AR and a Glock to work... That's the proper way to deal with terrorists.

Are you kidding? It would be wall-to-wall coverage, "Reporting Live- from the scene of a violent situation, I'm _________" on EVERY FREAKIN' NETWORK.

Heh. OJ Simpson got away with a double murder. But he's in prison for 25 years for kidnapping - holding a couple of guys in a room against their will with
threats. Isn't that exactly what these goons did with the guards? And didn't they do this in order to facilitate the commission of afelony (several felonies, actually...along with quite a few misdemeanors)?Where is the outrage, indeed.

We need to hold the networks and the newspapers accountable. Now... and when this happens again... we must inundate their Facebook pages, floodtheir email inboxes, tie up their phone lines... and
that they report what's happening. At least, by constant posting on, say the Today ShowFacebook page, but hundreds of us, over and over and over, some Today Show viewers, who otherwise may remain oblivious, might wake up to thefact that they are being lied to on a daily basis. The only way this will work, though, is through sheer numbers, posting over and over and over again.So it won't make them honest. But at least we can be a huge thorn in their lyin' butts.

Each week it seems like this kind of stuff escalates and your right, because it's motivated from the political left the media sweeps it under the rug. Myconcern is when these antics target....shall we say a 2nd Amendment believer. You want to see the MSM get their collective panties in a wad, seewhat happens then.My fear is the the MSM will target the victim -currently these antics typically take place in more left leaning ideological locales so the risk of encountering armed resistance is reduced. But it's only a matter of time.
