Crosshairs again?

| January 19, 2011

Old Trooper sends us link to an article on Townhall in reference to a protest that union activists are planning in front of the home of WalMart developer Dick Knapp who is about to sign a deal with WalMart at a recently defunct Chevy dealer several blocks from Walter Reed across the street from Metro Police’ 4th District Station.

After putting up such a fuss about Sarah Palin’s crosshair map, you’d think someone in the unions would be a little more sensitive about putting WalMart’s smiley face in the center of rifle cross hairs, wouldn’t you?

But almost as egregious is the fact that WalMart is willing to put a store on Georgia Avenue. Walter Reed, a few blocks north of the old Chevy dealer, is leaving for new digs in Bethesda and a few hundred local jobs are leaving with it. The area is already blighted. Blockbuster closed their franchise across the street because no one returned the CDs, but WalMart is willing to begin an enterprise that might employ a few people and provide shopping convenience for the neighborhood.

But here are the unions stopping what may be the best thing to happen to the people living there. By picketing a private home.

    “With little community input and sparse public notice”

    Yeah right. The community doesn’t give a shit = little community input, all of a sudden.

    “Little community input and sparse public notice”? Hey, union asshats, there was a meeting!!!! Which part of public notice don’t you guys understand?
    Or is it more along the lines of, we can’t shake down Wal-Mart, so let’s protest, by terrorizing some guy’s family.
