Pure Evil: Obama’s Union Goons Picket Child’s Funeral, Harass Mourners, Unleash Dog on Family of Dead Woman

Posted by on Aug 01, 2013 at 9:56 am

How depraved can these lefties get? Picketing funerals now? We thought this was the domain of bottom-feeding scum like the Westboro Church, but now apparently greedy union thugs are getting in on the act.

A judge ordered one of Chicago’s most politically powerful labor unions to suspend picketing against 16 funeral homes last week after receiving reports that striking Teamsters had, among other things, disturbed a child’s funeral.

SCI Illinois Services, Inc., one of the nation’s largest funeral home chains, asked a district court to intervene after striking funeral directors and drivers with Teamsters Local 727 allegedly harassed grieving families.

“We are grateful that the court agreed to issue this temporary restraining order, and we are hopeful that it will help protect grieving families who are experiencing the most difficult times of their lives,” Larry Michael, managing director for SCI Illinois Services, Inc., said in a release. “While we recognize and respect the Teamsters’ right to lawfully picket, we have been shocked and saddened by their attempts to make grieving families the target of the cruel and outrageous attacks.”

The company testified in its filing that union members blocked grieving family members from leaving its parking lot, used bullhorns to shout obscenities at workers and mourners, and unleashed a German Shepard on a dead woman’s daughter and husband.

Geez, can it get any sicker than that? Of course it can.

The funeral home was eventually forced to call the police when picketers allegedly disrupted a child’s funeral with laughter. The officer asked the Teamsters to leave, but protesters returned when he drove away.

“We will be here for the visitation; we will be here for your funeral,” Teamster driver Lester Plewa allegedly shouted into a bullhorn as a funeral director met with a dying man planning his arrangements with family members.

Pure evil. Don’t forget these are the type of  vermin who helped foist Obama on an unsuspecting nation:

Secretary-Treasurer John T. Coli, one of Illinois’ most influential labor leaders, heads the 6,800-member union. Coli brokered the Teamsters endorsement of Barack Obama during his then-long shot campaign for the Democratic nomination—a major turning point in the 2008 primary.

    Repeal the Wagner Act. In the meantime the families should sue the unions. I’m sure they will love the discovery and the jury will enjoy their defense-Not!

    I’ve worked in one (public) unionized environment in my life and escaped before they could finish trying to drain my work ethic and replace it with institutionalized sloth and entitlement.

    Public unions are a cancer and should be excised. Private unions may be responsible, or they may be parasitic enough to kill their hosts, but there’s far greater chances for responsible negotiations and an expectation of behavioral standards than you will ever get from public unions.

    I just drove by the funeral home on Dempster in Skokie. There are five picketers there with signs and banners, sitting under a popup tent eating lunch. Apparently the law doesn’t apply to them. A police car drove by and didn’t seem to care. Fellow union members I guess.

    Unions are defending the rights of women, children, minorities, and gays, unlike the Republicans, who let Wal-Mart, Big Oil, and Halliburton trample all over us. Instead of disparaging unions because you hate that they allow minorities as members, you should look at the real cause of America’s financial problems, George W. Bush, who belongs in jail for his crimes against humanity, especially women, children, minorities, and gays, who were affected most by Bush and his criminal Adminiatration.

    So, Brian, you actually DEFEND these vile pigs because BUSH! BUSH! BUSH!

    Good to know.

    I expect Brian G. is being sarcastic. (If he had mentioned “binders full of women”, I would be certain of it.)

    Brian g: You must stop reading those “art voice” articles that you base your talking points in your post.Moreover,read the actions of what some members of this Union did to grieving family members and ask: what if this was my family member affected by the Unions actions?Also, how did Bush any of Bushes ,for that matter,actions are the talking points of the Union members.?The article I read had no quotes from union Members why the were picketing ,laughing at a dead child and sicking a dog on a grieving familyattributed to a policy from and ex president eight years ago.

    Dems were quite eager to condemn the Westboro Baptist Church when they picketed military funerals, as were repubs as well, and the MSM certainly ran plenty of stories about them. Will the dems and the MSM publicise and condemn this outrage, probably not. The left never applies their own standards to themselves.

    You had me ’til the last line. Yeah, people like these union thugs helped get Obama elected, but so did many regular citizens who either were going to vote Democrat no matter what, thought electing a black man president (a development long past due) would be cool, shared his leftist agenda, or chose not to believe what Obama’s words, choice of friends and history told us about him. I have a number of friends in that last category. They weren’t “unsuspecting: They decided to make him in their own image rather than listen to the man and look at his history, which shows him to be an anti-American socialist, & a fan of Marxism. As for the union groups picketing funerals, I agree with you 1oo%.

    When union thugs picket a child’s funeral, taunting the deceased’s family with laughter and obscenities, the response by the Obamabots like Jeff D and Brian G is to blame Bush.
    Every time I think Leftists can’t be any more moronic, they prove that they can be.

  11. Buzz on 1/01/13 at 9:18 pm

    Yeah, unions did some good 80 years ago, therefor they get a pass for everything else. That seems to be the rule. As far as the union and racism, go see steelworkers when picketing someplace with a black security guard.

    Yeah I went to college with John Coli’s son Ryan. Kid was a real douchnozzle.

    Not saying Ryan deserved it when he was kidnapped, beaten, and robbed when at Miami, but nevertheless their family is a thuggish one.

    a non-union worker knows that he is worth his pay. Union workers know that they rely on force to get a fat deal at the expense of others.

    Unions rely on government force being on their side, to force CUSTOMERS to pay their demands

    Hastings act was about the crookedest and most ruinous thing that FDR did

    Unions: Vile. Communist. Scum.

    Violent. Intimidating. Thugs. Mob members.

    Delusional. Democrats. Oblowme supporters.

  15. Brian G. wants squirrels unionized on 8/08/13 at 12:33 pm

    Unions are defending the rights of women who agree with them, but not those attending funerals (or are being buried), child molesters (teachers unions), those who murder children (union thugs heaving cinderblocks off of overpasses) and love attacking minorities that dare disagree with them.

    I’m Brian G and I roll around in this message like a rabid dog.
