Video: SEIU Protesters Take Over Bank HQ to Protest CEO | The Blaze

"About 80 medical workers and their union representatives took two yellow school buses to the headquarters of ESSA Bank in Stroudsburg, Pa., last Wednesday. The SEIU demonstrators weren’t there to complain about the bank. Instead, they demanded to meet with bank president and CEO Gary Olson who also chairs the Pocono Medical Center board of directors."

So the Unions are now not only targeting people at their homes but also at their non-related places of employment; i.e., they show up and disrupt things at this bank president's office, not because they have a beef with the bank, but because the bank's president happens to Chair the Medical Center with whom the Unions have a gripe. And I wonder where they got the two school busses they used to get there?

These union sheep have NO CLUE what they're doing to destroy themselves every time they attack an innocent and unrelated business in order to intimidate someone. The American people are paying attention you lazy idiots, we will remember this.

Trumpka gave SEIU its marching orders over the weekend. We can expect the far left union communists to draw blood soon enough. They are indeed Obama's "brown shirts" but in purple.

Nothing like a crowd of middle aged tantrum throwers wearing trash bags while demanding respect.

These people wearing trash bags is pretty ironic isn't it? What about their little spokeswoman at the end trying to explain to a police officer why they were protesting in a bank that has nothing to do with their employer.

I watched the video, start to finish. They went to make a point. They didn't stay long. They were polite when the police showed up and left without incident. I'd say their point was effectively made with minimal disruption.

I would rather they had stayed just outside the bank instead of going inside. I condemn that particular action. That was wrong.

There protest had nothing to do with that bank nor did they have any reason to disrupt the business of that bank while acting like idiots. How is it polite to disrupt someone's private business until the cops show up and you get scared?

Indeed, these greedy thugs are making themselves known for what they really are.

I think I'll put together a nice montage of the real Thuggery Union Antics and give it the public school the next time they attempt their indoctrination showing of "Newsies" for the umpteenth time.

It is going to be a blood bath before the year is out.
People are not as intimidated by unions as they once were.
The unions are going to show their hand.
The persuasion of power, when the power of persuasion doesn't work.
