Community aggravators and their mobs are having a hey day since the community agitator in chief moved into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The word is out that the president has put the kibosh on the prosecution of his law breaking activist friends in the unions and government funded agitator groups.
Of course, we all remember the New Black Panther thugs that showed up at a Philadelphia polling station in the last election and stood there scowling, night sticks in hand, attempting to intimidate people from going in to vote. Their actions were recorded by republican poll watchers, whose video of the event went viral. Ultimately the panthers were pursued by career lawyers of the justice department, but the case was dropped when the political appointees intervened on two of the offenders, with the third ordered by the court to not return to a polling place with a weapon (?!). The light handed treatment set the stage for more threatening activities for other Obama-mob types, most notably at Town Hall meetings and Tea Party Rallies, where they attempted to subdue the free expression of ideas counter to the administration's opinion.
The most recent example occurred at the home of Greg Baer, a Bank of America executive. The Obama-mob were bused into the neighborhood on fourteen buses and with the escort of two police cruisers, where SEIU and the National People’s Action (NPA) members terrorized a teenage child in his own home.
"The Maryland officers reported there were approximately 500 protesters on and near the front lawn of Baer’s house. Montgomery County was not given a “heads-up” concerning the plan."
The bank executives son Jack was alone in the home at the time, and ended up locking himself in the bathroom. “When are they going to leave?” Jack pleaded.
Mr. Baer's neighbor just happened to be Fortune Magazine columnist Nina Easton, who wrote an excellent piece about it here.
The effort to intimidate and muscle banking institutions is a project the activists types have taken to with relish:
"SEIU and NPA also loudly stormed into bank buildings, occupying and shutting down their lobbies. How much would you like being in one of those bank lobbies during an SEIU-NPA Progressive Democrat hijacking of the property? How is anyone supposed to know that the loud angry mob coming through the front door isn’t there to rob it, or worse yet, burn it down?
Just an aside - isn’t it against Federal law to purposely shut down the normal operation of Federally insured banking institutions? Or is that sort of thing being encouraged now?"
This is all a part of an ongoing campaign which SEIU and NPA have titled “Showdown In America” in which they intend to heckle and bully banks, bank management and their employees and customers, all for the purpose of bilking the banks and their creditors out of millions of dollars in unsecured mortgages.
History has seen the Roman mob and the Paris mob. We now are being treated to the Obama-mob.
I guess Barrack found yet another private business whose neck he wants his boot on.
