Former President Bill Clinton can be seen in the background campaigning for Rep. Kanjorski as numerous thugs in yellow shirts from a local union surround and intimidate a member of We Are Change.
In this video from a rally in Pennsylvania, We Are Change member Anthony Antonello is literally surrounded by a gang of union thugs in yellow shirts who physically intimidated him and hurled insults after he heckled former President Bill Clinton during a stump speech for Rep. Kanjorski. One of the union members tells him, “You looking for trouble, you found it,” as the group circles around him. A woman can be heard shouting, “The Secret Service has your number,” as stern faces stared him down. Various others in yellow shirts added, “Nobody wants you here,” and “I didn’t come to hear you,” as well as some other language.
A reporter (see video) spoke to Antonello after he left the building. She told him she had witnessed what had happened, commenting that the union members had surrounded him “real fast.” Antonello appeared to be alone and clearly felt uncomfortable with their actions by the end.
Watch the video. Warning: Some offensive language used by some of the union thugs.
He had disrupted Clinton by shouting “End the Fed” and otherwise interjecting issues related to the out-of-control printing of inflationary paper dollars by the the Federal Reserve, a private bank with the coloration of being a government entity. The crowd reacted to Antonello’s statements not only with disapproval, but with a threatening display of group force. He was essentially intimidated out of the building, and also claims he was kicked in the leg. By contrast, no action was taken against the woman who repeatedly shouted, “Bush’s fault.”
Ironically, Rep. Kanjorski has previously admitted he hopes to avoid the public, stopping appearances at town-hall meetings and commenting that he didn’t want to encourage “nuts to hit me with a camera.” Congressmen are supposed to face their critics and constituents alike, and citizen-journalism is part of the backbone of the spirit of this nation.
