Defending the Hot Dog Man
Sean was joined by Clint Tarver, an eyewitness whose hot dog cart was destroyed during the melee in Michigan at the Right to Work rally. “Clint, what happened, you were on the ground and could tell us what happened,” began Hannity, “What happened.” “They destroyed my equipment and told me I was on the wrong side,” sadly reported Tarver, “I was just there to do a job and nobody bothered to find out why I was there, I was a little angry but I don’t retaliate, I can always buy new stuff.” “How many people did this to you,” asked Hannity, “How many people were calling you the N-word?” “They came in a line across the tent and it was a pretty big tent,” explained Tarver, “They were destroying everything.” “I lost nearly $500,” explained Tarver, “They didn’t bother to figure out.” “Nobody should be called the names you should be called and I ’m sorry you had to go through this,” supported Hannity, “I’m going to give you $1,000 to recover your expenses and because nobody should be treated the way you were.” If you’d like to learn more about Clint Tarver and to offer your assistance, click here.
Malkin: Peace in Discourse
Michelle Malkin and David Macaray joined Sean to discuss the debates in Michigan. “This story is about demanding civility in public discourse,” bluntly chastised Malkin, “This really exposes just how corrupt the attacks on tea party and minority conservatives in the age of Obama.” “First off, I think this is a bit of cherry picking,” offered Macaray, “There are some thugs, fair enough, but these are isolated incidents.” “Do you find it offensive that much of the violence comes out of the left,” questioned Hannity, “You go to a tea party rally and you find children on their parents shoulders and they leave the place cleaner than they found it.” “The point to Right to Work legislation is that people are forced to join a union to work,” pressed Hannity, “Why do you have to do it.” “Because unions are about raising the standard of living,” explained Macaray, “The Right to Work union members get the union benefits and safety programs, we all know what happened with the UAW, one word, Japan.” At the end of the day, Sean’s analysis is spot on. Forcing Americans to participate in something they don’t believe in, to donate to political causes they don’t believe in and to join organizations they don’t believe in is entirely un-American and yet it happens in states throughout America. As Michelle Malkin wrote in her article this week, “ There Will be Blood,” there is a place for unions but there is an equal place for responsible and civil discourse.
Governor Rick Snyder
Sean was joined by Governor Rick Snyder to talk about his labor issues in Michigan. “What did you think when you saw the violence the other day,” pushed Hannity. “The violence takes away from the whole discussion,” offered Snyder, “I’m proud to say that we’re a Right to Work state, giving people the right to choose.” “Right to Work has been a topic in Michigan for years and the people in Michigan knew this was being discussed, “ explained Snyder, “Less than 20% of our workforce is unionized.” “I’d love to see the resurgence of Detroit and of Michigan and I think it’s all very possible,” added Hannity, “There is opportunity there.” “We have the pieces of that going but we needed to get the public sector straightened out so we can get people the services they need,” agreed Governor Snyder.
