As Twitchy reported, violent union goons spent the better part of yesterday protesting Michigan’s newly passed right-to-work legislation by destroying property and throwing punches. Clint Tarver, Lansing’s “Hot Dog Guy,” found himself in the middle of it all, and when the smoke cleared, his hot dog stand was nothing more than a pile of debris.

Union thugs destroyed a tent, hot dog stand and assaulted @scrowder. Not to mention what they did to #Hostess. Bring #rtw to Mo!

This is what thugocracy looks like: Union protesters reduce a man’s hot dog cart business to rubble: bit.ly/TUzmXx

You know what Clint Tarver did after union thugs destroyed his cart? He prayed with his wife. Way to go, union thugs.

Hey Michigan Unions? Did you meet Clint Tarver? Did you see his hot dog business you destroyed? Funny…He Built That. ironicsurrealism.com/2012/12/12/uni…

Not only was Tarver’s stand destroyed, but he was the target of vile racist epithets.

Where is the Left to decry the vicious racism?

Here’s a great opportunity for the left to play the race card. Oh, wait, they keep silent on union violence: bit.ly/TUzmXx

Why are white Democrats still so racist against the black man? danaloeschradio.com/union-thugs-de… #miunion #righttowork

Fact: unions are racist breeding grounds, just ask Mr Tarver #gop #tcot #unionhatecrime

Hey, @thereval, @revjjackson Care to comment about attack on Clint Tarver? (ironicsurrealism.com/2012/12/12/uni…).

I wonder how @toure feels about all this? RT @dloesch: Clint Tarver confirms that union protesters shouted racial slurs at him. #dlrs

— Brian Geldmacher (D) (@bgeldmacher) December 12, 2012

Oddly enough, no word from them yet.

Any reporters out there looking for a follow up story to MI protests? Talk to Clint Tarver. (1/3)

— Amanda Carpenter (@amandacarpenter) December 12, 2012

Ha. They’d have to report on the union thuggery at all, first.

First Gladney, then Tarver, union groups have a thing for black vendors, it seems.

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) December 12, 2012

@michellemalkin @dloesch Tarver is the new Gladney

— Jorge Bonilla (@BonillaJL) December 12, 2012

In 2011 it was Kenneth Gladney. In 2012, it’s Clint Tarver. More on union thuggery next on the @dloesch radio show. 971Talk.com/dana

— Amy Lutz (@amylutz4) December 12, 2012

Indeed. This story most definitely echoes the Kenneth Gladney beating. In 2009, Gladney was verbally and physically assaulted by SEIU thugs outside of a health care town hall meeting in St. Louis. His crime? Distributing “Don’t tread on me” flags. In Tarver’s case, he wasn’t even attempting to make any sort of political statement; he was merely doing business (he had reportedly been hired by Americans For Prosperity to provide catering for their tent, which was also destroyed). And, as we saw with the Gladney case, Tarver’s beating has been thoroughly ignored by the mainstream media, if not outright denied.

So @hardball_chris will have Clint Tarver on his show 2night to discuss how racist MI union members destroyed his hotdog cart, right? Right?

Don’t bet on it.

Loesch spoke with Tarver this afternoon on her radio show. His account of yesterday’s events is heartbreaking — and utterly infuriating:

“It was terrible.” Said Tarver of yesterday. #dlrs

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) December 12, 2012

“I lost two tables, all my utensils, all my catering equipment, they smashed my buns, my coolers.” – Tarver #dlrs

Clint Tarver confirms that union protesters shouted racial slurs at him. #dlrs

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) December 12, 2012

“Two people came back from AFP to help me load what I had left.” – Tarver #dlrs

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) December 12, 2012

“They thought I was with AFP. And I wasn’t.” – Tarver #dlrs

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) December 12, 2012

His mere existence set those thugs off. Is it any wonder unions have developed a reputation for vicious bullying?

My heart’s breaking listening to this interview. RT @dloesch: “They thought I was with AFP. And I wasn’t.” – Tarver #dlrs

Union thugs at work. MT @dloesch: “I lost 2 tables, all my utensils…catering equipment, they smashed my buns, my coolers.” – Tarver #dlrs

This story is heart breaking RT @dloesch: “They thought I was with AFP. And I wasn’t.” – Tarver #dlrs

Oh, the tolerant left. #newtone RT @dloesch: Clint Tarver confirms that union protesters shouted racial slurs at him. #dlrs

— Brian Geldmacher (D) (@bgeldmacher) December 12, 2012

As if that should matter either way. Very sad what we are becoming. RT @dloesch: “They thought I was with AFP. And I wasn’t.” – Tarver #dlrs

— Ragnar D. (@mind_maven) December 12, 2012

Tarver’s gracious conduct and composure in the wake of union brutality has certainly earned our admiration.

That guy made my day. What an awesome example. RT @dloesch: I will have audio of my interview with Clint Tarver in minutes. #dlrs

— Tim Wells (@RightWingNerd) December 12, 2012

Shameful what union thugs did to popular hot dog vendor Clint Tarver’s stand, people are responding generously to his support.

— Jack Mackie (@ussburns588) December 12, 2012

A page has been set up to collect donations to help rebuild Tarver’s business:

A worthy cause, indeed. Michigan GOP State Senator Joe Hune is also pitching in:

We need to stand behind guys like Senator @joehune for his support of Clint Tarver after he was assulted by union thugs.

— Mat S. (@USAmjs) December 12, 2012

Tarver says MI lawmaker @joehune is paying to replace his lost equipment and supplies. bit.ly/SRRG1l #dlrs

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) December 12, 2012

Unions may not truly understand what it means to help our fellow man, but it’s heartening to know that there are people who do. Wonderful.
