WSJ: The Chicago Way

I always enjoy Kimberley Strassel's column. I found today's to be particularly good.

'The Chicago Way'

She documents the Chicago style thug tactics and their targets.
  • The Chamber of Commerce
  • Humana
  • Sen Jon Kyl (R-AZ)
  • Rep Eric Cantor
  • Fox News

I especially liked her use of the lines from the movie "The Untouchables". The column is good as it points out tactics and targets of the Chicago gang, but I think you can go further and connect the dots as to the vast and dark connections of this organization. You don't even need to grab a movie quote to illustrate the gangsta mentality that is in charge.
“If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard,”
deputy chief of staff Jim Messina
 He said that during the month of August when the Town Hall meetings were in full gear, and being ignored or demonized by state run media. He meant what he said too! Prior to that the only violence had been some people trying to push through doors when halls filled up. Then, the SEIU started to bus in real live union thugs. Then things got messy. They would sneak in the back door, and then when the room was filled, they would lock the front doors. No opposition. There is one occasion caught on video where a black man who showed up to voice his opposition and was attacked by SEIU thugs. And a simple search of youtube show a few more incidents that you probably didn't see on state run media.
