BREAKING: Americans for Prosperity stages phony altercation at Michigan Right to Work rally

by Eclectablog on DECEMBER 11, 2012

There’s a video on heavy rotation at Fox News, being massively retweeted by conservatives and Americans for Prosperity, where they talk about the “brutality” and “violence” of union members at today’s rally in Lansing, Michigan to protest Right to Work legislation. The video shows an Americans for Prosperity tent coming down on the front lawn of the Capitol Building.

As it turns out, American for Prosperity (AFP) themselves were responsible for at least one of the tents coming down. Tom Duckworth watched one of the folks that had been in the AFP tent go around and loosen the straps on the tent. According to Duckworth, “the stakes came down from the INSIDE.”

Clearly AFP came to this rally to incite an altercation that could be shown on endless loop on Fox to show that union members are, indeed, “union thugs”. Not surprisingly, Fox News cameramen where right there on the spot to capture it all on film. The main physical altercations that occurred happened

after

the tents came down.

Mission accomplished.

Duckworth spent time after the interview speaking with Ned Resnikoff (@resnikoff, blogger for The Ed Show.

Prepare for the Neo-con blow-back as the mouth-breathers rise up in protest ..
