Yet, when the Tea-Party, hateful Michelle Malkin following, late Andrew Breitbart worshiping insanity crew who are followers of these individuals brand of lies on steroids, our job at I.U. News and Talk is to call them out on it. In this case, the fairy tale story of late with the Far-Far Insane Right Wing is about a Hot Dog Cart.
No, kid you not, a hot dog cart. Take a look at this guy (above), otherwise known as Clint Tarver small business owner of said pork on a bun cart and his appearance during December 11th, Right to Work for Less Rally in at Michigan's Capitol building in Lansing. In the world according to Malkin, this is what occurred to Tarver and his "cart".
"This is small business owner Clint Tarver of Lansing, Michigan. He was caught in the violent chaos that erupted when union thugs attacked the Americans for Prosperity tent on the capitol grounds yesterday during the right-to-work debate. His hot dog stand was destroyed.
Velvet Hammer reports that the thugs shouted “Uncle Tom” and “n****r” at Tarver."
If we threw logic out of the window, its' to be believed that Tarver just sat up his "Dog Cart" on the corner of Lansing's Capitol Grounds to kindly sell "Hot Dogs" to hungry protesters at December 11th Right to Work for Less rally. Yet, considering AFSCME set up a FREE hot dog and water stand, was near by at a similar location, Tarver's business strategy on a pure profitability scale was questionable at best. Especially noting is that Tarver has GOP Tea-Party ties a bit close to home, himself.
From AFSCME Website "Thousands Protest Michigan’s Right-to-Work (for Less) Bills" - December 11, 2012:
"Their energy was sustained not only by their determination to stop Michigan from following in the footsteps of Wisconsin and Indiana – where workers’ rights have also been trampled upon – but also by the hot dogs and energy bars dispersed from an AFSCME tent set up outside the Capitol."Meet Linda Lee Tarver, the Pork on a Bun Cart Man Clint's wife and Michigan's Republican Party "Ethnic Outreach" Vice-Chairperson. Yes, Mr. Tarver wife has direct links to the Michigan Republican Party, who ironically just happened to be aligned with many of the same folks inside Lansing's Capitol Building on December 11th, voting down a Right to Organize and Maintain a Union in Michigan.
From the site "Right Michigan" January 11, 2008:
"I've been an activist in the Republican Party for several years now and have made it my goal to increase minority participation in, or votes for, the Republican Party. In Ingham County, I have recruited conservative Hispanic, Black, and other nationalities to run as County Commissioner or to join our executive team/volunteer base. The GOP in Ingham is diverse and committed to getting Republicans elected.
In 2008 I was asked to participate in a series of debates in Detroit on behalf of John McCain. Though McCain was not my choice and even after he withdrew from Michigan, I showed up in Detroit to talk about the Republican Party. As chair of Ingham County I have picked up a county commission seat in a very blue county. I am able to work with all groups and all people without compromising my own principles."
Wonder why Mr. Tarver didn't bring his professional food service "hot dog cart" to the rally? Maybe any media resources that might interview Mr. Tarver, should ask him this question.
Uh oh! This Americans for Prosperity lie was rebunked in faster than the speed of sound. Now let's take on Mr. "Pork-On-A-Bun" Tarver. Below, we have a professionally made You Tube video by JC News Flow describing Tarver's Hot Dog Cart story. Take a LOOK at were Tarver is standing in the video. Specifically, look at the building behind him in the second shot. Why, that's no other than Lansing's CITY Hall and not the Capitol building across the street.
I was just at the Michigan State Capitol and there is still chili on the lawn from where #ClintTheHotDogMan was assaulted by union mob
