Does the internet need yet another rant about Hoffa et al. Probably not, but dad burn it, I’m Seriously Annoyed and Want to Vent.
Besides, I need to try and post something now that I have “successfully” (remains to be seen) downloaded and installed Adobe Flash. One hopes that (a) it did and (b) now I can post here.
So on to my rant …
“Let’s take these sons of bitches out”?????
I haven’t been keeping a complete record of all the Leftist Hate Mongers who are colluding to cast me and mine as Very Bad People, but I’ve heard far more of it than I can stomach.
We are routinely referred to not by the name we prefer (which Political Correctness supposedly demands, does it not?) but by a crude nickname that is synonymous with a grotesque sexual act.
And I have heard the exact same Anti-Tea Party Talking Points (i.e., we’re racists, terrorists, yada yada) coming from:
- leading Democrats like former President Clinton, House leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate leader Harry Reid, and other leading lights in the DNC such as Senator Kerry and Senator Schumer;
- blatantly extremist talk show and blog Lefties like Janeane Garofalo and Ed Schultz;
- purveyors of news.
I would think it would be a major red flag for serious, intelligent voters that alleged journalists at ABC, CBS, NBC, WaPo, the New York Times etc. sound so very much like overtly partisan hate mongers, especially after all that tut-tutting they did about the targets on Palin’s election map. One might almost conclude they were “not real news organizations.”
Now, oh surprise surprise [NOT], we have another in the Democrats’ Army of Shameless Shills … the president of the Teamsters union … not only saying Tea Partiers are “sons of bitches” who need to be “taken out”, but also doing it while introducing the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES at a LABOR DAY EVENT.
How very “healing of the wounds of our nation” to have a prominent Obama supporter slander MILLIONS of patriotic Americans in such a venue. Obviously Hoffa felt comfortable saying such hateful things in this venue, which is no wonder, seeing as he and and our “healing” president are clearly on the same page as the rest of the Leftist hate mongers.
Below, I’m going to paraphrase someone I admire tremendously, who put what I believe better than I could:
In introducing the President, Teamsters President James Hoffa declared war on concerned independent Americans and on the freshman members we sent to Congress last November by saying, “Let’s take these son-of-a-bitches out!”
As a proud former union member and the wife, daughter, and sister of union members, I have to say please don’t be taken in by union bosses’ thuggery like Jim Hoffa represented yesterday. Union bosses like this do not have your best interests at heart. They have all but destroyed the labor movement in this country.
The union bosses derive their power from your union dues and their promise to deliver your votes to whichever politician they’re in bed with. They get their power from you, and yet their actions ultimately hurt you. They’re chasing American industry offshore by making outrageous, economically illogical demands that they know will never work.
When big government, big business, and big union bosses collude together, they get government to maximize their own interests against those of the rest of the country. So, now these union bosses are desperately trying to cast the grassroots Tea Party Movement as being “against the workingman.”
How outrageously wrong. We stand with the little guy against the corruption and influence peddling of those who collude to grease the wheels of government power. This collusion is at the heart of Obama’s economic vision for America. In practice it is socialism for the very rich and the very poor, but a brutal form of capitalism for the rest of us.
Obama’s economic vision for America is socialism
for the very rich and the very poor, but a
brutal form of capitalism for the rest of us.
For all his lofty rhetoric, President Obama is a Chicago politician, not by birth, but by choice. Graft, cronyism, and quid pro quo are the well-known methods of an infamous Chicago political machine, which Barack Obama sought out, joined, participated in and finally emerged from to perform on the national stage.
This corruption isn’t just the result of a few bad apples. It’s the nature of the system. I know of what I speak. I too served in public office in a state that had a corruption problem. The difference is that I grew up in Alaska and chose to fight the corrupt political machine.
Barack Obama had no connection to the Chicago area before he selected it as the place where he would pursue his political career. He didn’t go to Chicago to clean up the corruption. He went there to use it. And then he brought it to the White House.
