While warming up the crowd for President Obama, Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa demonstrated that he knows EXACTLY what ‘Spread the wealth around’ and the elimination of property rights means, and that is that the elimination of Rights requires the exercise of force to get your way:
"We've got to keep an eye on the battle that we face -- a war on workers. And you see it everywhere. It is the Tea Party," he said. "And there's only one way to beat and win that war -- the one thing about working people is, we like a good fight."
Interesting that the only thing the Tea Party advocates is the preservation of Individual Rights through the rule of law, as defined in the Constitution of the United States of America. Extremists.
How is that a threat? How is that in anyway seen as 'waging war' on workers? The people of the Tea Party are themselves made up on workers - where is the sense here? See the official St. Louis Tea Party response here.
Well, pardon me, I realize that if you've followed the last several posts on this site, we've already established the fact that most leftists use words as decoration and for visual impact - not because they mean something.
So... on that score, that of using words in a way that makes sense, well, Hoffa flunks out just as badly as all the rest of his fellow proregressive leftists do. But on the count of coming out and saying plainly and clearly, what his ideas must mean in practice, comes out and states the only alternative available to those who discard care for the meaning of words, on that score, I've just got to give him a big thumbs up!
“...The war on workers, and you see it everywhere, it [sic] is the Tea Party . . .President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these son of a bitches [sic] out . . .”And President Obama is standing right there with him. Isn't that comforting?
So America, you've got a choice before you. Do you want to line up as an army and march on, and 'take out' your fellow Americans who are asking for the rule of law?
Or do you instead want to see that the Constitution is respected and that the rule of law rules the land - and not an army of thugs who want things there way, no matter the cost?
Choose wisely my friends.
I didn't get to hear Biden's remarks from his rally until this morning, and if anything, I think they are far worse than what Obama and Hoffa had to say.
The Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden (now granted, it is Joe 'gaffamatic' Biden, but what he said fit seamlessly with what the others said), told his crowd
“this is a different kind of fight. This is a fight for the heart and soul of the labor movement. This is a fight for the existence of organized labor. You are the only ones who can stop the barbarians at the gate! That’s why they want you so bad.”And worse,this:
“You are the only non-governmental power that has the power and capacity to stop this onslaught.”Just think about the implications of that statement. One, that govt power is united with the interests of the labor movement and is also available to be used to 'stop this onslaught', and two, that union people comprise a power that should be used as a force, backed by the U.S. Govt, to be mobilized against those who disagree with them.
That those whose ideas don't agree with those of the labor movenemt, constitute an onslaught against the interests of the Govt.
Just friggin' Wow.
And neither Obama, Biden nor Hoffa are trying to walk their statements back in the least. Bad stuff is coming down the pike folks. If this stuff isn't called out, bad stuff can't help but follow.
