The latest from Barack Obama and the left's ongoing quest for more civil debate and dialogue, here's Teamsters Jimmy Hoffa at an anti-Republican rally over the Labor Day weekend:
"We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They've got a war, they got a war with us and there's only going to be one winner. It's going to be the workers of Michigan, and America. We're going to win that war," Jimmy Hoffa Jr. said to a heavily union crowd.
"President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let's take these son of b****es out and give America back to an America where we belong," Hoffa added.
Besides the profanity that is typically lacking at Tea Party rallies, is there much more violent imagery one can conjure up than war? Yet these are the folks that love to pretend that the peaceful tea party protests are fulminating with hatred and aggressive violence. What jokes.
Add to that the patently absurd proposition that Jimmy Hoffa somehow speaks for "workers" of America. It's yet another of the left's hijacked terms (see what they've done with racism, bigotry, science for reference). I am a working man...and Jimmy Hoffa does not speak for me. Not even close. With the increasing exodus from unions everywhere in the country, his assumption to the contrary is as dumb as it is wrong.
But it would be wrong to hold Obama and Democrats accountable for the buffoonery of labor union leaders like Hoffa though, right? I mean, his violent rhetoric, his offensive assumptions and irresponsible aspersions hurled at millions of his countrymen can't be hung around the necks of liberal politicians just because they get all their money and do their bidding, right?
Obama, Mr. Civil Dialogue himself, spoke moments after Hoffa and set the the labor union leader straight over his referring to millions of patriotic Americans who just happen to disagree with his politics as "sons of b****es:
When he took the stage, President Obama said he was "proud" of Jimmy Hoffa and other labor leaders.
