Long before Stern took over the union, he helped SEIU members sabotage corporations that refused to play ball. He worked with economic terrorist Stephen Lerner on the union’s “Justice for Janitors” campaign. With the approval of union leadership, Stern and his comrades employed New Left tactics from the 1960s, blocking access to city streets, invading private meetings, advancing shareholder resolutions, and urging workers to swamp authorities with health and safety code complaints against their own employers.
Stern’s SEIU also led the way in bloodying Tea Party supporters at the anti-Obamacare town hall meetings of 2009. After President Obama, a master of Chicago thug politics, implored his supporters to “punch back twice as hard” against his enemies, SEIU obliged. In a widely reported incident, outside a town hall meeting union goons roughed up Kenneth Gladney, a diminutive black man selling Gadsden (“Don’t Tread on Me”) flags. One of his attackers called Gladney a “n**ger.”
Like members of ACORN, the union’s close ally, SEIU members are known for disrupting hospitals. One assaulted a cameraman at a hospital in California last year. SEIU goons are also known for surrounding the homes of corporate executives in order to intimidate companies.
But Stern doesn’t just work on the outside applying pressure.
Stern has visited the Obama White House a reported 50 times – 24 times in 2009 alone, while refusing to register as a lobbyist. SEIU views President Obama as an investment. The union went into debt in order to spend an incredible $85 million to promote Obama’s candidacy. The purple-shirted people beaters’ union even produced a movie called Labor Day to take credit for Obama’s election.
Obama rewarded Stern by naming him to the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform. Talk about the fox guarding the henhouse.
After leaving SEIU, Stern joined the board of a big pharmaceuticals company, SIGA Technologies. SIGA CEO Eric Rose practically admitted that Stern’s role in helping to ram Obamacare through Congress landed him the position. “His insight, experience, and leadership, particularly his understanding of how our federal government works, will complement the skill sets of our existing board members,” Rose said.
Stern also accepted a plum post as “senior research fellow” at Georgetown University’s Georgetown Public Policy Institute.
After a lifetime of undermining the businesses that generate wealth for America, now Stern can concentrate on poisoning the minds of the young.
