Tea Party thugs destroy black man’s business

Font Size:

Wait, did I say Tea Party thugs? I meant union thugs. Sorry to confuse you, lefties and the media (PTR). You can go away now, because this won’t interest you.

Dana Loesch reports:

Nobody is safe. Apparently union protesters targeted anything that had a white tent yesterday, even reportedly taking out the hot dog stand of Lansing fixture Clint Tarver.

A tipster on Twitter sent this:

Early today, Clint Tarver, known as “The Hot Dog Guy” here in Lansing had his business attacked and destroyed by out of line and out of control protesters near the Capitol.

Everyone who has passed the hot dog cart knows what a kind and caring individual Clint is. He never fails to bestow a smile or friendly greeting. In no way he he provoke this attack, nor any of the behavior displayed toward him.

Here’s Mr. Tarver:

Look at that: a friendly, hardworking entrepreneur. A fixture of the community. No wonder those union goons trashed his business.

Unionism in microcosm: Destroying a business and then standing around watching someone else clean up.

Now, I do hope somebody will explain to me how this isn’t racist. An overwhelmingly white crowd goes after a black man who’s just trying to make a living. Defend yourselves, racists.

As for you decent people, you can drop Mr. Tarver a line at Clint’s Hotdog Cart. He seems like the kind of guy who can forgive these bastards for doing that to him. I’m not.

Update: There’s also a fundraising page to help him out here. Oh, and remember: White House declines to condemn union violence in Michigan.


As we learned a couple of years ago, it’s now up to the accused parties to prove they didn’t. Oh wait, this is different because it just is.

Hey, maybe our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters on the left will claim Tarver did this himself. It’s a “false flag.” That’s one of their favorites.

Update: Actual news report from Lansing: “The protests were mostly peaceful.”

Update: Liberals: Political violence is okay (if it’s for a really good cause).

Update: More union racism in Lansing.

Update: Here’s Loesch talking to Tarver. He seems like a very nice man. He deserves an apology from these union criminals, and a big check. Which is why it won’t happen.
