Union Gangsters: Andy Stern

Pages: 1 2

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.

      Mrbean, better give Luca a good briefing before he takes off; them Shop Stewards and Business Agents are liable to pin his hand to the table and put him to sleep with the fishes (again).
      Historically, one of the primary targets of Communist infiltration of a free country has always been trade unions. SEIU is one of the most shining examples of successful Commie front organizations.

    Never buy union made goods and services whenever possible. I've been in three unions myself, each worse than the previous. I always look for the union label, then put the item back on the shelf. Andy is just a thug, a crook, a thief. Nothing more.

  • StephenD

    If the truth were told you'd find ill informed people forced into signing onto the union rolls against their will. Just ask any hotel worker. The guys sweeping the lobby floor or the cook on the back dock having a smoke break, or the maintenance worker changing a light bulb; ask them about it. They either sign on to have dues withdrawn from their checks or they don't get to keep their job. Period. How is this able to happen in a free society? The President supports such tactics? Why isn't he called on this? SEIU is nothing but a communist front. There is nothing beyond the pale for them as a means to their ends…including violence.

  • mrbean

    Unions should be in the public sector. Simple logic…..government employees ( local, state or fed ) who get what they get based on unions lobbying millions of union dues to elect politicians who legislate laws which favors, promotes and expands the power of unions at the cost of non union tax payers who pay their member's salaries. A tremendous conflict of interest you think?

    "Obama pushes more bailouts at taxpayer expense; America to bail out corrupt union pension funds" http://www.examiner.com/scotus-in-washin… Why should tax payers pay to bail out unions who corrupt their own pension funds?????

  • BLJ

    This guy is a lowlife and enemy of America. He talks tough but in reality is probably a wimp when he doesn't have his goon squad around him. The SEIU is just the USSR with different letters.

    I hope they try to start some stuff with the regular people. They will find out pretty quick that they messed with the wrong people. That girly purple shiry he has on will look nice with some red on it.

    Stern and the SEIU are related to the common maggot, only lower. Eventually they will be defeated by their own degeneracy. What the individual can do is avoid union made products or services and support nonunion retailers whenever possible. The next step is to vote for representatives that do not take money from the large unions like SEIU and AFL-CIO.

    • johnnywoods

      pyeatte, you have just insulted maggots everywhere.

  • Bukkdems

    Herman Cain has proposed ending the minimum wage and explained that this is the only way unionized states can compete with right-to-work states. I guess that means the union workers will have to take less pay than non-union to compete

    • kafir4life

      Actually, if you remove union dues and other required theft from workers, non-union does quite well!! I was in three unions. Now I negotiate for myself, and do very well thank you very much. I avoid union made products like the plague. Nothing against the workers (used to be one). It's the thought that workers money is being used for cocaine for Andy Stern, and his rental of hookers for the likes of Schmuckey Chumer.

  • Ben

    Leftists are the worst workers enemies in reality. In the so called "socialist camp" of the USSR there appeared only one real trade union-Polish Solidarity that fight the communist power and won. Bolsheviks when seized the power first destroyed the qualified workers` unions. Socialist workers had left their qualifications and the wish to work that had made grave problems for their countries.

  • johnnywoods

    Andy Stern called Senators who opposed "Obummercare" terrorists. That`s like being called "ugly" by a frog. No offense to frogs.

  • Kathleen

    I am not a GWB fan; however, in retrospect I so admire how he and his administration squelched the unions and did not understand the magnitude of his accomplishments until these Marxists took control.

  • Ben

    I congratulate polit-correct moderation of the author of "Leftist Gangsters".

  • Brujo Blanco

    SEIU is an evil organization. When are the rank and file union members going to realize their union is a communist organization. It makes no sense for a union to financially destroy an employer that writes all the pay checks. Union violence is tolerated by the courts and this needs to change.

    • kafir4life

      Most of the union members are just drones that don't know any better. They'll believe their union masters over all else.

  • John_Kelly

    Amazing how pseudo tough guys like Andy Stern puff themselves up with egotistical statements like “We like to say: We use the power of persuasion first, If it doesn’t work, we try the persuasion of power.”

    Just another example of "empty vessels making the most noise".

    This clown if he was alone and confronted by a foe would wet his pants.

    Stern, Trumpka and Obama all have one thing in common, they talk like super salesmen and produce nothing of substance.

    A more appropriate slogan to be uttered by these cowards would be "We will fight until the last drop of your blood."

    mentally sick imbecile….another FUBAR (like Fubar Ack)

  • rlynh

    This guy is why so many members of the SEIU are such jerks.

    We need to reform unions.
