A stagehand working on the stage set up for President Obama's appearance in Los Angeles was told to go home when he refused to remove his hat and shirt honoring the aircraft carrier named USS George H. W. Bush. His son is in the US Navy and serves on the ship.

What time does this traffic gridlock creating rally start in LA? Here is to hoping LA commuters don’t get home until midnight. And also hoping there are no life threatening emergencies where help is delayed.

Liberals are the most mean-spirited, hate-filled, Fascists, ever.

Coincidentally (?), the original Fascists and Nazis were supported by the socialists [hint: National Socialist Democratic Workers Party, only a modern liberal would claim that's a "right wing" name]. Today's tyrant-wannabe regime is supported by socialists with exactly the same values, right down to hating Jews. The more things change . . .

Freedom of speech for liberals but not conservatives. I think we need to start some court cases under equal protection of the law. We also need to challenge whether private employers can deny freedom of speech to employees when it does not demonstrably impact their jobs. The constitution protects freedom of speech against congressial law, but this needs to be expanded.

Of course the stage hand would be fine if setting up a stage in 2013 for a President Palin event, while he wears a Hope and Change Obama shirt and hat.

We all know the drill....

From the interview, it sounded like it was the union reps who demanded that he removed his hat, turn his sweatshirt inside-out, and fired him.

I don’t see why this chap should be surprised at the intolerance of the union ,,, they would gladly bust ones head just for opposing their views . I worked construction for 40 years and would NEVER WORK UNION and made a real good living . Unions are the main reason we no longer have a manufacturing economy .

Anything and everything liberal is violent: Communists inC hina have killed millions, COmmunists in the Soviet Union killed millions, the Nazi of Germany killed millions, the Cambodian Communist killed millions, on and one and on.

Even here in America the liberals demand fascism, a virtual police state, to take from the “rich” and destroy corporations and capitalist companies. They would easily try to kill millions here if they could get away with it.

Was he canned or just sent off the job for the day because he wouldn’t change the hat and shirt.

I also wonder if there’s a provision in their contract that prevents workers from wearing any message of any kind on their clothing, unless it’s the company logo or something.

But when Obama was elected everything was going to be puppydogs and rainbows, kumbaya, and we were all going to get along. Ask this union guy and Juan Williams if that is still the case.

Just more liberals showing their “tolerance”.

They are no different from any totalitarian in history. They preach the virtues of tolerance until they are in power and then they only have tolerance for those who think, talk, and act just like them. And the worst thing is that they cannot see the hypocrisy of their stance.

NAZI part was 100% a socialist political party. That’s why they hated and brawled with the Communists so much. They were fighting over the same deluded supporters.

The only thing “right wing” about Nazi Germany was its hijacking of the traditional symbols and institutions of German patriotism and nationalism to camouflage its systematic destruction of everything noble decent and great in the country.

Of course at a Nazi party rally they wouldn’t have fired a stagehand for wearing an “SS Hindenburg” hat.....

There once was a need for unions, and communism took the stage.

Now there’s no need for unions, but communists rule with rage.

What once was a rational nation, is today a captive cage.

They might have wondered at the SS designation, which stands for 'Steam Ship' in English. Hindenburg was an LZ, or Luftschiff Zeppelin- specifically LZ-129.

Other such handy nautically-themed prefixes:
SS- Steam Ship
RMS-Royal Mail Ship or Steamship, such as 'RMS Titanic'
USS- United States Ship- Ship of the US Navy
HMS- His/Her Majesty's Ship- Ship of the Royal Navy

/pedantic history-geek mode, sorry
