Now That’s a Mob

It’s one thing to protest against Bank of America.  Hell, sometimes I feel like marching up and down with a placard on their lawn.  I and friends of mine have had plenty of bad experiences.

It’s another thing to go to someone’s home and try to intimidate them:

Last Sunday, on a peaceful, sun-crisp afternoon, our toddler finally napping upstairs, my front yard exploded with 500 screaming, placard-waving strangers on a mission to intimidate my neighbor, Greg Baer. Baer is deputy general counsel for corporate law at Bank of America (BAC, Fortune 500), a senior executive based in Washington, D.C. And that—in the minds of the organizers at the politically influential Service Employees International Union and a Chicago outfit called National Political Action—makes his family fair game.

Waving signs denouncing bank “greed,” hordes of invaders poured out of 14 school buses, up Baer’s steps, and onto his front porch. As bullhorns rattled with stories of debtor calls and foreclosed homes, Baer’s teenage son Jack—alone in the house—locked himself in the bathroom. “When are they going to leave?” Jack pleaded when I called to check on him.

This was SEIU, who are trying to unionize BofA.  They’ve proudly posted a video of the event and even tried to smear the reporter who ratted them out.

I don’t even need to ask about what would happen if the Tea Party did this.  What I do have to ask is what they hoped to achieve, besides needlessly frightening people.

Update: More classiness from the Left wing protesters, this time on immigration.
