Skip to comments.‘Take to the streets’: Obama Labor Dept. glorifies Sharpton, Jackson in protest-preaching poster
Posted on 04/03/2012 3:39:14 PM PDT by Nachum
President Barack Obamas labor secretary, Hilda Solis, has authorized new posters in elevators throughout the Department of Labors Washington, D.C. headquarters building. The posters feature a photo of her marching in protest alongside the Rev. Jesse Jackson and MSNBC television host Rev. Al Sharpton, among others.
The photo depicts Solis acting as an emissary of the Obama administration protesting against Alabamas strict new law combating illegal immigration. Solis has her arms locked with Sharpton, and Jackson is a few feet away. The poster also carries a message for federal government employees who are traditionally expected to be apolitical in the performance of their duties.
Whether we take to the streets or simply do our work with integrity and commitment here at the U.S. Department of Labor, the poster reads, above Solis signature, We are all marching toward the same goals: safer workplaces, fair pay, dignity on the job, secure retirement and opportunities to make a better life. I believe in the power of collective action.
A Labor Department spokeswoman did not respond to The Daily Callers request for comment on whether Solis is encouraging federal workers to use their positions to promote a political agenda. Even so, an official sign describing the posters purpose indicates that may be the case.
These posters help remember history, shine a light on the contributions of employees, and celebrate accomplishments, the sign reads. But more than that, they help spark a conversation about the impact and importance of our work.
Americans for Limited Government communications director Rick Manning led the Department of Labors public affairs department during the George W. Bush administration. He told TheDC that Solis appears to be more interesting in politicking than actually enforcing laws.

The list, Ping

These card-carrying communists must be defeated in November.
I guess Jewish folk are not “her people,” given that Al Sharpton staged the only violent anti-Jewish pogrom that sullied the United States.
He’s a criminal, a brown-shirt, and a thug.
Not just at the ballot box.
I’m entirely sick of this crap.
This --along with the attempt to have a federal monitor put in place over Sheriff Joe Arpaio-- seems to indicate a readiness, a willingness to take the social unrest to the next level.
May God (and us all) be watchful in this troubled time.
He is determined to start a class/race war.
I fear that he just might get it.
“But more than that, they help spark a conversation about the impact and importance of our work.
Spark lit. Mission accomplished. Be careful what you wish for.
Yes, though it's a cover for riling up the black vote he was loosing. I see it more as dividing the country for political gain ultimately. With no concern for the outcome on people for setting this off....some will get hurt no doubt...
I truly do hate this President...and now that his wife Mooshell has begun inciting our grandchildren to speak up to their grandparents and tell them to vote for her husband. Well she's equally as bad if not worse than he is.
How dare she bring peoples kids into this when she consistantly says her own kids are off limits!
