Union thuggishness may have hit a new low when an opponent of Michigan's right to work statute all but threatened Governor Rick Snyder's 16 year old daughter:
A speaker at a union protest against right-to-work legislation said if Gov. Rick Snyder signed the bill he would get "no rest" and that protesters would be at his "daughter's soccer game."
The Rev. Charles Williams II made the comments Tuesday to loud cheers before a group of thousands of union workers. After his promises to harass Gov. Snyder, he introduced Rep. Richard Hammel, D-Mt. Morris Township, and House Minority Leader Tim Greimel, D-Auburn Hills. Williams is a Detroit-area pastor and left-wing activist.
Gov. Snyder later that day signed a bill into law making Michigan a right-to-work state. One of his daughters is a 16-year-old high school student.
"Just know one thing, Rick Snyder: You sign that bill, you won't get no rest," Williams said.
"We'll meet you on Geddes Road. We'll be at your daughter's soccer game. We'll visit you at your church. We'll be at your office.
"Because Michigan workers will not take it laying down - by any means necessary!" he said.The thing is, this threat must be treated very seriously. Going after the family of their opponents is not unusual for labor thugs.
Geddes Road is where the Snyder residence is located.
Snyder's daughter doesn't play soccer - she plays volleyball and softball. Reason enough for her bodyguards to be extra vigilant.
