Still No Prosecution Months After SEIU Thugs Assaulted Kenneth Gladney

November 4, 2009

Long after purple shirt-wearing SEIU goons beat up conservative activist Kenneth Gladney outside a Missouri healthcare town hall meeting, not much has happened.

Almost three months after the incident the wheels of justice are spinning VERY slowly, Glenn Beck said on his TV show.

Mike Flynn, editor of, said

the incident happened August 6th. Charges were filed. Gladney went to the hospital. Immediately, the Democrats brought in a high-powered attorney to defend the SEIU thugs who were charged with assault and it just kind of disappeared.

Flynn noted that the case has “disappeared within the jurisdictions of those individuals who are part of Buffy Wicks’s truth squad.”

Flynn is referring to Wicks, now deputy director of the White House Office of Public Engagement. As the leader of the Obama campaign in Missouri, Wicks organized an “Obama truth squad.” Flynn said she

organized at the Obama campaign headquarters a press conference of law enforcement officials, prosecuting attorneys, strict attorneys at the campaign headquarters who issued a warning that they would prosecute rival campaigns for any what they saw as misleading statements from their campaign.

Wicks also helped to oversee the infamous National Endowment for the Arts teleconference in August in which the Obama administration openly encouraged artists to produce pro-Obama art as political propaganda.

Naturally, the left has responded with vicious attacks on the victim, a diminutive black man with diabetes. Perhaps in the eyes of leftists Gladney hasn’t learned his “place” in society.

Watertiger at firedoglake calls Gladney “Joe the Dumber” and describes him as a “teabagging wingnut who tripped and fell while getting in the face of an SEIU member.”

Wndycty at Democratic Underground calls Gladney a “fraud” and a “fool.”

TBogg mocked Gladney and his injuries, calling him a “Teabagging Drama Queen,” and adding, “If the teabagging people weren’t such rage-filled imbeciles they would be the most adorable slow children on earth.”

Bronte17 at the far left hate site Daily Kos refers to Gladney as a “‘Don’t Tread on Me’ dork” and as ” a mouthy dork in a dark tan polo.” (That sounds a lot like “uppity” black, doesn’t it?) The blogger also suggests Gladney is suing SEIU because it has deep pockets. “[H]mmm… wonder if they think union money is easy pickin’?”

Oliver Willis, who works for the George Soros-backed slime factory Media Matters for America, inverts the perpetrator-victim relationship calling  Gladney “the black conservative who is the current poster boy for the thug right.” Willis can’t get the sequence right on his blog’s tagline either, “Like Kryptonite To Stupid.”

Wonkette derided Gladney as “the biggest whore in history. Like 100 times more whorish than Joe the Plumber and the world’s entire collection of actual street-walking prostitutes combined.” [emphasis in original]

    They are in line behind the Black Panther Party polling place watchers.

    These people really do embody Machiavellian politics. It’s about power, to them, nothing more, nothing less. That’s what they care about. Their whining about the tactics used by the right is comedy, pure and simple. They don’t care about what tactics are used; they care about winning. If whining about the right helps them win, they’ll whine. If calling on some professional boxers with baseball bats to take care of the opposition, they’ll also do it. Like Machiavelli, they aren’t immoral but amoral; to them, morality has nothing to do with it.

    It seems that even video of the incident doesn’t deter these people from trying to twist it into something else. I suppose that since most people that read or hear their comments won’t see the video they can get away with it. This is a monster we are fighting and we better get serious. This is survival politics.

      Kool-aide is a highly potent, reality altering drug.

    this is survival politics

    It’s pure power politics, I believe. As long as the right doesn’t truly understand that, it will constantly play defense. That’s precisely why someone like Andrew Breitbart has had such a tremendous influence in recent months; unlike most conservatives, he truly understands what’s going on and how it can be countered.

    Selective prosecution of illegal activities started in Congress and has migrated to include those that adhere to politics as usual in our government. Consequently, they have made our laws moot.

    This is why Obama needs to face an impeachment for criminal activities. If his close ties with SEIU doesn’t ring of RICO, then nothing does. At the least, this is high crimes and misdemeanors.
    Unions in this country are unnessecary, since people are never bound to one job, and can move freely from employer to employer. It seems that anymore, Unions are just organs of the mob, and collect from hard working people, and try to force people who don’t want to join, to join.

    Through many years of watching, I have concluded that Liberals have two prominent aspects: Fantasy and Hypocrisy.

    Here we have the Hypocrisy.

    Remember after Rodney King how they all clamored for the prosecution of the LAPD officers? Remember how gutless prosecutors put those LAPD officers on trial for “Assault under color of Authority”, even though California Law says:

    Any peace officer who has reasonable cause to believe that
    the person to be arrested has committed a public offense may use
    reasonable force to effect the arrest, to prevent escape or to
    overcome resistance.
    SEC Section 835a , Calif Penal Code

    REMEMBER, when a jury of their peers found the LAPD officers “Not Guilty:, the Kool-Aid drinkers of South Los Angeles rioted?

    REMEMBER, Race Baiters confronting George H W Bush, who pandered to them and ordered the FBI to work a Civil Rights case against the Officers for “Violating Rodney King’s Rights”, and had them sent to prison?

    I had the chance to meet mr. Gladney here in Cheyenne. I have also learned about SEIU and their strong arm tactics, after reading Malkin’s latest book.

    Its too bad Gladney didn’t have a gun to defend himself. But again, he probably would have gone to jail for self defense since the real thugs are Soros and snakes. Worldnetdaily has an impeachment campaign going and its getting stronger. Obama and his flies need to go back to Chicago where they came from-america isn’t interested in thugs and slugs who go out and mug.
