Taking a Beating

Okay, boys and girls, ask yourselves this:

What if a [insert conservative/Republican/business person, etc. here] had done this to a [insert liberal/Democrat/person of color, etc. here]?

On Sunday, YouTube user edbex posted video that shows South Carolina AFL-CIO president Donna DeWitt taking some whacks at a pinata with a black & white photo of Gov. Nikki Haley (R-S.C.) affixed to it (h/t Daily Caller’s Matt K. Lewis).

“After years of being treated like a union thug, Donna Dewitt gets sweet revenge at a retirement reception in her honor,” edbex approvingly notes in her caption.


A video posted online that shows a former union leader in South Carolina smashing a piñata effigy of Gov. Nikki Haley has riled the national office of the AFL-CIO, which wants it taken down.

“Do you think we can get this video pulled,” asked a national AFL-CIO official in an email to Palmetto State union sources.

The author of the email also worried the video might get “picked up by tea partiers, maybe even Haley herself, to attack labor again.”

Nah, you’re fine. Shouldn’t be a problem. (Never remind that I was reminded of the Rodney King beating.)

What a disturbed group of people!
