Trumka's 9/11 Message: "Extremist" Right-Wingers "Opened Door to Hate
Pundit Press ^ | 9/9/11 | Aurelius

Posted on 09/09/2011 10:05:16 AM PDT by therightliveswithus

...Instead, disgraced AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka uses September 11 as a jumping board in order to bash conservatives. At the beginning of his message, he devotes a few fleeting paragraphs on "opened doors," but then his rambling prose quickly devolves into a swamp of lies and hatred.

For example, if you talk to any conservative, he or she has endless respect for those who lost their lives on September 11, particularly those who rushed into buildings in order to help those in need. Not true, declares Trumka! Instead, he writes:

[D]espite our vows, the public servants, construction workers and others who lost their lives or still suffer with the cancerous remnants of the Twin Towers haven’t just been forgotten. They’ve been vilified. The extremist small government posse has turned them into public enemy No. 1...

Trumka later continues his insane blabbering, once again throwing out boogie men and lies:

Wealthy CEOs, anti-government extremist front groups and frothing talk show hosts—from the Rush Limbaughs and Glenn Becks to the Koch brothers, Karl Rove’s American Crossroads group, Americans for Prosperity, the Club for Growth, FreedomWorks and the American Legislative Exchange Council—also pushed open the door to hate.

We’ve seen the costs of hatred in ill-thought wars, in shameful attacks on immigrants and our LGBT neighbors. We saw it in the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. We saw it in the racism that has found overt and covert expression since Barack Obama began his run for office—from outright declarations of people who said out loud they would never vote for a black man.

Maybe he can name a person, event or statement when this took place.

Or... as I suspect, this is just ANOTHER Liberal generic broadside at Conservatism.

When Conservatives challenge the Liberal hate speech, etc., we KNOW who said/did WHAT and WHEN.

Push the unions buttons harder. We want them to be foaming at the mouth, loony tunes, paranoid freak outs.

We want everyone to see Obama’s army.

This is coming from a union thug whose hateful rhetoric led to the murder of a man in the early 1990s.

Trumka's language is shameful, disgusting and deadly dangerous, should anyone take seriously what this obscene little bully has to say.

For him to abuse the occasion of the 10th anniversary of an act of war that killed thousands of innocent people to bash his political enemies is beneath contempt, and also an insult to the memory of the dead.

Doing something, and then blaming it on your enemy is an old commie trick, one the left has been using for years, so long that most halfwitted leftists believe their own slander. Union thugs and their commie enablers in the Democratic Party have been playing the hate and violence game so long they think everyone is the same.

Trumka continues:
...we also saw it in a mob rush of hundreds of workers who destroyed property, kidnapped people, help security personnel as hostages and got away without a single arrest or MSM coverage ...

oh wait, never mind.

When we get the Senate and Presidency the first order of business should be repeal Obamacare but equally important is to disband all Unions from the Federal Government.

Trumka and obama’s army is nothing more than obama’s version of Ernst Rohm.

Hey, Trumka - remember what happened to Ernst Röhm? I bet you don't. We do. Keep it up. For you and those like you, it's going to be June 30, 1934 all over again.

Right. Liberal hate speech and worse is either NOT mentioned at all ... or worse, it is rationalized so maladroitly that not even a child would accept the logic with a straight face.

Remember when the left accused the Bush DHS of having terror alerts in order to divert attention from other issues?

The left is so stupid they don’t even know they’re giving away their whole playbook every time they open their mouths.

Not the first time ...While this may have been 40 years ago, I have no doubt today's union scum would do it again - and worse.

Now we know this campaign of slander is being orchestrated by Obama himself..., not that we had much doubt before.

The Wobblies:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Industrial_Workers_of_the_World

Chicago
Minnesota
Washington State — Note the Everett ‘massacre’ and general strike. Dockworkers again.

I used to know someone whose parents were familiar with the goings on of the Wobblies. Decades later, no one talked about details of anything. Many secrets were buried with the people of that generation. Even here, I carefully reword certain phrases, and all I know is that I had a 30 second exchange with that person about cursory generalizations, at the same time that I read up on the ghastly tale of Frances Farmer.

The IWW was founded in Chicago in June 1905 at a convention of two hundred socialists, anarchists, and radical trade unionists from all over the United States
Today these people are known as Democrats.

I have a slight connection to the American Federation of Labor. In 1880 NYC (Lower East Side), my gg-grandfather lived in the same tenement as AFL founder Samuel Gompers.
My ggGF was from Ireland, was a cooper and probably talked about labor issues with Gompers (who was a cigar maker).

This is from 2008:

Twelve members of Operating Engineers Local 17, including high-ranking officials, were arrested April 8 by federal officers on charges of extortion, conspiracy to commit extortion and conspiracy to commit racketeering.

Mark Kirsch, Local 17, is among those accused of engaging in attacks on non-union workers and their families over a 10-year period by committing acts of bodily harm, destruction of property and workplace sabotage in order to force employers to hire workers chosen by the union.

“Today’s indictment is a critical first step toward releasing local industry and contractors from the stranglehold of corrupt union leaders who are charged with extortion, workplace sabotage and other labor racketeering crimes,” said Gordon S. Heddell, U.S. Department of Labor inspector general.

https://www.abc.org/Newsroom2/News_Letters/2008_Archives/Issue_14/12_Union_Members_Indicted_for_Racketeering_Extortion.aspx

Just one example. Google (or Bing as I do) “union members indicted).

What is more infuriating is that there is zero evidence of any violence or "hate" coming out of the Tea Parties and yet it is constantly mentioned in articles that there is.

Where? I've been to a few and have never seen any of this! They keep making up garbage and the MSM reports it as fact. Why are the Republicans not screaming mad about this??

I don't even get a rise out of things like this anymore.

For one, he appeals to an ever shrinking sect of society. And that was small before he opened his pie hole.

Secondly, it's what I've come to expect from Obama’s Army. In fact, I would be disappointed if he didn't say things like this on the anniversary of 9/11. This is just a small taste of how the Obama campaign will be conducted in 2012

Thirdly, this is only a sign of their failure and his nervous breakdown

I see your point. I, unfortunately, do not have as much confidence as others that he will be defeated in 2012. Some here on FR act like it is a forgone conclusion, it is not. I have a bad feeling that some “crisis” will develop that will cause the “faithful followers” to unite behind him. They saw how the country rallied behind GWB after 9-11 and know it is an effective tool.

No surprise at this. Every war begins with propaganda. This one is no different.
