Another video that catches some of the thugs pushing around citizens –

Via Brietbart News:

VIDEO:  SEIU Union Thugs Attack Black Conservative Protestor. Police Arrest Them.

[Notice the two guys in SEIU shirts with the “pro health care” message on front – Editor]

St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Kenneth Gladney, 38, a conservative activist from St. Louis, said he was attacked by some of those arrested as he handed out yellow flags with “Don’t tread on me” printed on them.

He spoke to the Post-Dispatch from the emergency room at St. John’s Mercy Medical Center, where he said he was awaiting treatment for injuries to his knee, back, elbow, shoulder and face. Gladney, who is black, said one of his attackers, also a black man, used a racial slur against him before the attack.

More Video Here LINK.

Mini-UPDATE: Gladney and his attorney were on the Neil Cavuto Show. The three men and the large woman in SEIU t-shirts all kicked and hit Gladney. Gladney is taking legal action against the SEIU and the four individuals identified.

UPDATE: – Michelle Malkin has more news and video links of more union thuggery at town halls – LINK.  Good work Michelle!

UPDATE II:  SEIU Front Group Talking Points for Town Halls (Hat Tip NY Joe):

seiu healthcare 1seiu healthcare 2

There it is, do not speak to people about actual policy points, interupt, yell and chant mindless slogans. Is that the Democrats looking out for you??

UPDATE III: Greta Van Susteren mocks the claim by the DNC that these old folks showing up are all paid by someone to be there. On the other hand ACORN and SEIU people ARE indeed paid for their activities.

UPDATE IV: Man who initiated attack on ken Gladney in the video above is an SEIU member named Elston McCowen

McCowen’s resume Via CNM:

On minimum wage…

Local NAACP board membership…

Socialist party member’s endorsement…

In sync with former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney’s views…

Status as minister at local church, affiliation with SEIU local 2000…

UPDATE V – August 10th more union violence against citizens:

UPDATE VI – August 11th new violence and new video with Michelle Malkin commentary
