Posted on 09/10/2011 7:51:08 PM PDT by george76
Top AFL-CIO union chief Richard Trumka -- President Barack Obama's guest of honor at his speech to Congress Thursday night -- urged Obama to "go to the mat" for Big Labor.
Of course, Obama hasn't been shy about doing just that for the last three years. Trumka just wants more, more, more.
Obama's "jobs" proposal appears to be full of it -- more special deals and bailouts for the union hierarchy.
And unsurprisingly, Obama made no mention of the Boeing jobs in South Carolina the Acting General Counsel of his National Labor Relations Board is trying to destroy.
Meanwhile, Big Labor has become even more militant, as events this week demonstrate.
On Labor Day, Obama and Trumka shared the stage at a political rally where Teamster union president Jimmy Hoffa urged his "army" of union militants to "take these sons of bitches out"
they took a page straight out of the playbook of Richard Trumka, who climbed through the union boss ranks by encouraging militancy and even violence.
As President of the United Mineworkers (UMW) union in the 1980s and 1990s, Trumka led three violent strikes in which militancy was actively encouraged -- and workers who dared to continue working to provide for their families were subjected to threats and outright violence.

This is the age of Phone cameras and You Tube. It won’t end well for these animals.
They’re going to screw themselves right out of jobs if they keep this up.
America is tired of their crap.
union officials are exempt from federal prosecution for acts of violence in the so-called “pursuit of legitimate union objectives.” ?
We don’t have to buy their crap. Put them out of business.
Home grown terrorism ?
Longshore Union Member (Obama’s Army) Attacks Media (very foul language)
This occurred at International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU Local 21)
If so.... this should be capitalized on... videoed and spread virally..
This could cause the “UNIONS” to lose much public sympathy.. as it should..
Same in Wisconsin.. and other places..
Unions members may not be commies but surely Union administration “IS”..
Union members do not run the Unions.. vote fraud is tested and perfected there..
Best part of the TEA party is NO controlling headquarters, and no leader
We know what is right, We back our local candidate who knows it as well.
Turning it around, No Govt job is safe,
The unions control the Justice Department (through their control of the Democrat White House) so they can pretty much do whatever they want without any more fear of arrest or prosecution than black militants at polling places fear arrest or prosecution. (shrug) That's just the way it is right now.
That's right and if the MSM doesn't want to report it, we will go around them and post videos and pictures on every social gathering on the internet.
Of course, FOX has followed this story doggedly and continues it’s in depth investigation on this story, highlighting that no arrests were made anticipating more nefarious Union activity unfolding. NOT. /s
“Union thugs reportedly committed numerous acts of vandalism and violence including breaking windows, cutting brake lines on railroad cars, and threatening police officers with baseball bats. Not a single arrest has been made.”
This is similar to what happened in the case of two union thugs that kicked in the ribs of a diabetic 135 pound black minister as he walked out of a tea party meeting about 2 years ago. The police got there before they left and must have known who they were but no arrest was ever made, until, maybe recently. Glen Beck and You-Tube had it on film. I saw a news item that seemed to say that the thugs were recently tried and quietly let off. Can anyone substantiate that?
Cowlitz County Sheriff issues an updated news release on evidence found of the vandalism
“Home grown terrorism ?”
Napolitano is on it!
This is the age where right wingers are armed to the teeth. And you are right, left wing violence will not end well for them.
Has anyone identified that union tool who was cursing at the media guys yesterday?
Ah, the ILWU. Remember, this union was supported by the Comintern and received direction from the Comintern.
An m80 firecracker will scare the bejesus out of them
Sounds to me like those who own businesses or who might have crossed paths with this Union wought to watch their backs — and ARM themselves. Chicago rules boys — I’m sure you Union thugs are familiar with them. You bring a knife.....
Jimmy Hoffa needs to be Jimmy Hoffa’d.
and threatening police officers with baseball bats. Not a single arrest has been made. It has not been widely reported that the police officers involved are also union thugs.
That may be true but the Justice Dept, White House, etc needs the support of the public. Publishing acts of violence, vandalism and terrorist acts will get the public’s attention. Obama, Trumka and Hoffa may get their way with thuggary but they will lose the support of the people and that is where it counts.
You have more respect for "the public" than I do. This is a "public" that elected a "community organizer" from Chicago as President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. That's just for starters. Look around at some of the animals who have been elected to office by "the public". Too many of them make me throw up in my mouth a little.
Maybe they had better take another look. There are armies of people out there who will gladly take their jobs, and I'd wager some who would fight for them as well.
How long do they think management is going to put up with this crap?
It doesn't take that long to train a new workforce.
The reason unions hate the Tea Party is pretty obvious, the unions FEAR THEM TO THE HILT!.....If the Tea Party continues and their efforts increase, you will see even more resistance agains’t them by the unions.
GO TEA PARTY!!!!!! We support you and are a part of you.
“This is the age where right wingers are armed to the teeth.”
Let me clarify this, just a little:
This is the age where True American Patriots are armed to the teeth.
We’re in the cockpit, not out on either wing.
The union reps could come into our facility, the parking lot and the lunch room to talk with employees. They pumped them full of false information such as the company planning to lower the wage rate or cancel their insurance. But, we were instructed that we could not talk with our employees on any subject regarding the ongoing negotiations.
If an employee asked us a question about possibly canceling insurance or what wages were proposed, we had to tell them that we were not allowed to discuss matters and they should see their union reps. I was the plant safety manager and in charge of security and I was advised not to go into the employee parking lot and not to discuss "anything", even safety or behavior issues without a witness present.
I can see why the guy has issues, considering the name his parents gave him. I wonder if his last name is like Smith, Miller, Fletcher, etc; in that it reflects the family profession? I wonder if he has a sister named Ima?
Thank you very much for pinging me to this thread; sincerely appreciated :-)
