Posted on 08/27/2010 6:11:15 AM PDT by jazminerose
AFL-CIO thug, Richard Trumka has compared Sarah Palin to Joseph McCarthyand thats supposed to be a bad thing.
"AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, speaking to the Alaska AFL-CIO in Anchorage today, will take a swipe at Palin for her employment of the term union thugs, according to prepared remarks."
"Palin, he said, has come close to calling for violence, and will go down in history like McCarthy."
No she wont. We now have the internet and citizen journalists. Palin wont have to wait fifty years to be vindicated as the late senator did.
Liberals, evidently, have not yet been brought up to speed on the Venona project and the release of senate transcripts. Obama refers to McCarthyism as cowardice in Dreams. McCarthy didnt vote present on matters of national security.
Liberals to this day dont understand that McCarthys sole mission was to uncover Soviet operatives working in government positions, not put insipid movie actors out of work. In fact, being blacklisted in Hollywood became a badge of honor.
For all of their bleating about McCarthyism, the left never has understood that McCarthy was a senator and their jeremiad should be directed toward the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC).
Joseph McCarthy was absolutely right about our government being infested with Soviet Operatives. Palin has become the New McCarthy in the minds of poorly educated liberals and for daring to speak the truth.
My retort would be one word to this clown: Hoffa.
When did McCarthy ever call for violence?
Sarah hits back last nite.
I may not agree with Sarah Palin on absolutely everything or some of her tactics, etc., but I don’t recall seeing or hearing the woman advocate violence as a means of political discourse. All that does is give the people in power the excuse to declare martial law. That’s the last thing we want. Violence is a last resort. I would hope that the people on the sane side of all of this would see that.
No true conservative advocates violence as a means to an end even as much as we may want to when things really get crazy or bad.
It is far more likely that lefties and liberals take to violence, character assassination and the destruction of public and private property.
Also, many presidential assassins have been lefties, communists, liberals, terrorists or just plain degenerates.
There’s part of the ignorance.
When did Palin call for violence?
Libtards do a lot of projecting.
Undoubtedly; his exposure to that legend has been appropriately edited, too. What more appropriately epitomizes the term ‘thug’ than the description, ‘illiterate’?
Just wow! A wonderfully written piece. She lays it on the line and this needs to be circulated to the rank and file of union men and women everywhere.
Yes she did the idiots took the bait. Sarah has been egging them on for a couple of months now. Sarah is trying to drive a wege between the rank & file and the leadership.
This is a fight Sarah wants because of the Reagan Democrats so to be known as the Palin Democrats.
wege = wedge
Good piece of writing by Joy Tiz!
Hopefully, enough union members will read her FaceBook entry and then pass it along to others or family members.
FaceBook reaches millions.
Now that SEUI is supporting the democrats with 58 million will Richard Trumka say how much the AFL-CIO is kicking in?.
