It’s well known that Democrats take money from the Unions, get elected, give out sweetheart deals to the Unions at taxpayer expense and then wait for the next election to begin the cycle again. It’s crony goverment at it’s worst and it’s killing our country.
So you think “big deal, NC is a right to work state”. True, for now. If you are a North Carolina State Employee then you are probably a member of SEANC. You may not be surprised to hear that it was encourage by superiors at one point (I speak from personal experience). Most employees sign up and let the $4 dues be automatically deducted from each paycheck thinking “whatever it is, it must be good for employees or it wouldn’t exist”, “it’s a club right?”.
My guess is you’ve heard of the SEIU, potentially the most destructive force in America. On March 8, 2008 the SEANC decided to get into bed with the SEIU and currently hands over $300k of dues money. Did they bother asking or even announcing it to their dues paying members…….. nope. And so now we have the State Employees Association of North Carolina, SEIU Local 2008
I ask you to do you homework and if you agree that unions are dangerous for America, then stop the SEANC from bringing this freedom stripping slavery to North Carolina. Join the Moccasin Creek Minute Men and get updates on where we will be standing up to the change that the Progressives/Statists plan on imposing on you. Come stand with us.
Now for the interesting article:

Communist and socialist groups — including the Maoist Revolutionary Communist Party, the Communist Party USA, Trotskyist Socialist Workers Party and the Democratic Socialists of America — are voicing their support for the public-sector unions protesting Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s plans to curtail their collective bargaining abilities.
The communist and socialist groups have parroted many of the union talking points being used by the unions on their websites and in their publications, such as those accusing the governor of trying to break their unions. They have also compared Walker to former Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak.
“Egypt, whose revolution has been a constant source of inspiration here, reflected in signs and chants — and Walker’s new nickname, Gov. Mubarak,” an article reads from the International Socialist Organization’s webzine.
The webzine also describes the unions’ protest of Walker’s plans to force a vote on curtailing public-sector unions as “class war in Wisconsin” and as an affront to “the standard of living of working people.”
The formerly Soviet-backed Communist Party USA (CPUSA) echoed similar talking points.
“Using the deficit as a scare tactic, the right-wing corporate Republicans are on a fast track to defeat every initiative of the Obama administration, to destroy unions and public services at the federal, state and municipal level, and at the same time protect tax breaks for the richest few,” Joelle Fishman, chair of the CPUSA’s Political Action Commission, wrote in an article posted on her party’s website.
Fishman went on to call on a “broad alliance of forces for social change (labor, racially oppressed, women, youth)” to reframe the debate for the 2012 elections.
The website of the Socialist Workers Party’s newspaper, The Militant, bears a photo of a sign proclaiming “Walker is an enemy of the people.”
Over in the Workers World World Party’s newspaper Workers World, the presence of the student participants in the demonstrations is described as “as one of the most urgent tasks for young people at the moment.”
This says a lot more about the unions’ political orientation than it does about these fringe groups that have thrown their support behind the union protesters, according to noted author and former communist-turned-conservative activist Ron Radosh.
Radosh doesn’t believe the communist and socialist groups have been orchestrating the protests, but their willingness to speak the same language as the unions shows how far to the left the public-sector unions have moved.
“Their positions are the same as the unions, and that’s not surprising,” Radosh said. “But if you try to prove or show the level of cooperation there, it is very difficult to show that.”
At the same time, Radosh says both the communists and the unions have resorted to trotting out the same talking points communists and other radicals used in the 1930s.
But he cautions against labeling the unions as socialist or communist because they largely do not advocate overthrowing the current system.
