(COLUMBIA, S.C.) -- A video has surfaced showing Donna Dewitt, the outgoing president of the South Carolina AFL-CIO, bashing a piñata of South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley’s face while Dewitt and her colleagues were at a retreat in Columbia, S.C. Saturday afternoon.

“Well I will say, she looks like a tough old girl here,” Dewitt says as she gears up to swing at the piñata.

She repeatedly hits the piñata, which bears the phrase “Unions are not needed, wanted or welcome in South Carolina” below Haley’s face. In her State of the State address this year, Haley said, “We’ll make the unions understand full well that they are not needed, not wanted and not welcome in the state of South Carolina.” Dewitt whacks the piñata down and continues to wail away at it once it’s fallen. Onlookers cheer her on, urging her to continue hitting the piñata.

“Give her another whack. Whack her again,” a woman screams.

“Hit her again,” another man says.

Dewitt told ABC News she has no regrets about the incident and said there was “no ill intent” in what she was doing. Dewitt said her colleagues brought the piñata and were using it as a “memoir” of Haley’s words and actions towards unions in her time as governor.

“They made it and I would have played the game with them no matter it would have been pin the tail on the donkey with Nikki Haley’s face on it. I still would have played,” Dewitt told ABC News over the phone. "There was no ill intent....I’m not mad or angry.”

“We’ve been the brunt of her comments now for two years and that’s what the whole thing was. She’s been whacking at us over the last two years,” Dewitt, who has been president of the South Carolina AFL-CIO for the past 16 years and will retire at the end of June, continued. “Anyone that knows me knows there was no ill intent at all. Our folks don’t go to speeches with guns and things like that. We have very loving people in our unions who will take up money for people or a vet. We just heard these comments by the governor for over the two years. They were using a memoir of the last two years I’ve lived under her leadership.”

“Kids use piñatas all the time,” she added.

While speaking with union activists, Vice President Joe Biden, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, and AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka, commended the protesters for thier actions nationwide against Republicans.

In a telling statement, the Vice President told the activists:

“The only people who have the capacity — organizational capacity and muscle — to keep, as they say, the barbarians from the gate, is organized labor. And make no mistake about it, the guys on the other team get it. They know if they cripple labor, the gate is open, man. The gate is wide open. And we know that too.”

It is quite telling that the Vice President of the United States refers to Republicans as "barbarians," especially given the threats, intimidation, bullying and violence exhibited by union thugs and radical left wing activists across the country.

The "virtual town hall" Biden, Solis, and Trumka participated in was hosted by the AFL-CIO, one of the unions deeply involved in the Wisconsin Insurrection. AFL-CIO members harassed Republican lawmakers in Wisconsin, surrounding their homes and terrorizing their families. Unions activists and radical leftists have attempted to spread their violence to Washington and Idaho.

Will Biden and Obama speak out about the civil way their union buddies are treating Republicans if one of this nitwit South Carolina President's leftwingnut thug members decides to act like her and their counterparts from other states and take a bat after Haley herself and not a pinata? :roll:
