Hoffa at Obama rally: We need to take these tea party sons of bitches out
Hot Air ^ | SEPTEMBER 05, 2011 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Posted on 09/05/2011 1:47:09 PM PDT by RobinMasters

Via Breitbart TV, this is Labor Day the way it should be — with a guy named Hoffa threatening his political enemies while a union-stooge Democratic leader sits by and smiles. Honestly, I can’t decide how seriously to take him. On the one hand, this sort of salty tough-guy “we don’t take sh*t from no one” garbage is par for the course for labor leaders when addressing the rank and file, and all the more so when it’s the head of the Teamsters speaking. Sure, he makes $300,000 a year on the backs of his working-class constituents, but he knows conservatives are sons of bitches so his “authenticity” is secure. Plus he’s a Hoffa; this sort of rhetoric may be congenital. On the other hand, so filthy was the the left’s demagoguery of the right’s “tone” after the Giffords shooting that this sort of verbal excess by one of their own will never, ever be allowed to pass again without their faces being ground in it. So here you go. Start grinding, please.

A Twitter pal argued that this could have been a “Sistah Souljah moment” for Obama if he had challenged Hoffa on what he said. Interesting point, but I think O had other priorities today — like, for instance, noting how “proud” he is of Hoffa and other union leaders. Oh, and also questioning the patriotism of congressional Republicans who might object to his new jobs plan. That’s the second clip below, which doubles as a sneak preview of Thursday night. How rude it was of Boehner in hindsight to ask Obama to wait a day before accusing them of not caring about America on national television. Happy Labor Day, everyone.

That’s it. I’m out. Can’t take it anymore.

This is not unlike the left who accuses someone on the opposite side of the aisle of doing what they are exactly doing. Like we don’t notice, d-bag.

The nice thing about fighting a war against the union thugs is that they will only fight eight hours a day and then they’re off. LOL!

What needs to happen here, is we need to band together, physically fit, ex military men to be present and ready at rallies where unionistas will show to flex muscle, and beat them down upon provocation.

How many stores have we seen about union thugs going violent at our political gatherings.

Bring balls. Hit Back.

My father was a founding member of an IBEW local. In the early days he was pro union because it made sense to him economically. Also the union offered training programs and other benefits. But over time he saw the Union get completely corrupted and taken over by thugs from the North East and Industrial States. He started to realize that you could put your safety and even the safety of your family members in jeopardy simply by speaking your mind at union meetings. He realized that the local had been taken over by guys who were essentially thugs. Where else can a guy with no education, no real training or no real talent(other than busting heads) make $300,000/year? He became in his last 25 years the most anti-union guy you would ever want to meet.

I’m one of the Tea Party SOBs you refer to you socialist SOB! One day our nation will be retaken by those who realize that this is a Republic and not a Democracy. When that day occurs it will be the saddest day in your repulsive life.

You, the grinning ape you suck around after, and all the left-wing nut jobs that work overtime destroying this nation will be rounded up and put to hard labor. This will indeed be something new to you to have to work for your bread and water.

North Florida Brigade ready to roll...

Remember the days when the joke was there is a 60 minutes crew here and they want to interview you? Not is it there is a union rep here and he wants to talk about some violation of some union rule.

My question to these scum bag union leaders: if you support the Dems and it is the dems who support illegal aliens, aliens who take your jobs, how is it the Tea party and by extention the GOP is hurting you or why is it you continue to vote for the dummocrat party?

Fucking A right. (sorry mods)

If you are at a rally and Union protesters, particularly SEIU, or Teamster faggots gang up... Stand Up. Be proud.

You may lose to superior numbers....but the coverage of their
excess helps the cause.

And...acting proactively, they are like any other bully. They Fold.

No Coverage.

Fight Back.

Anyone interested in coordiniating Framil me

Wonder if a high-profile Tea Party member has filed a complaint with the FBI, charging Hoffa with something like threats on his / her life as a Tea Party member, criminal conspiracy, or whatever. Someone who can make the national news, not a local from some backwater town. I mean, what better witness can they have than obama? lol

I was just working at a gov’t site and telling the guy there I could help pick out the guy’s that don’t work to be the next to get laid off.

He agreed. He said he was at a job meeting and the shop forman was PLEADING with his guys. “Come on guys. If you give me just 4 hours of a work a day we can get back on schedule - just 4 good hours of work!” (BTW - they work 10 hour days, a four day week).

He said he has to plead, ‘cuz if he yells at them he’ll have the union on his back.

Uh, Mr President, what happened to your earlier calls for greater civility in politics?

Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast, 02/04/2010:

"Speaking at the annual National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. the president said this “erosion of civility” sows division and distrust.

“It poisons the well of public opinion. It leaves each side little room to negotiate with the other. It makes politics an all-or-nothing sport where one side is either always right or always wrong, when, in reality, neither side has a monopoly on truth.”...

The president said that progress does not come when we “demonize opponents,” or challenge each other’s motives."

Yeah, you bet, Mr President, Hypocrite-in-Chief.

The Hoffa/Obama view of America does not even rise to the dignity of a democracy! (A fair plebiscite would chuck them both out on their @$$e$.) To them, it’s a thug-demagogue-cracy.

Hey Hoffa, you are dreaming of the days when your dad had the mafia thugs behind him...those days are over. Yeah, the loyal union, the government had to go to the mob to make the union workers on the docks in WW2 keep down the sabotage and to support the war effort.

I don't think Hoffa is a very smart man.

Declaring war on the 80% of the American population who is not in any union, nor wants to be seems to be a losing position IMO.

Hoffa may be a "tough guy" and have a bunch of thugs surrounding him, but when it comes to a "war".....he cannot win.... I don't even think the threat of violence will help him, since I am reasonably sure that there are many in the Tea Party, while not stooping to violence, would not hesitate to confront violence if it were thrust upon them.

Mr Hoffa needs to pay more attention to the old adage:...you need to watch what you wish for...it may just come true!

We need to have a few stand back and wait till they leave. Then follow them and catch them alone and beat the livin effn hell out of them.

Kinda like we did around here when the some of the Union goons decided to picket outside a mill managers house. We found them, and they all needed dental care after. Not ONE WORD was said. But, I tell you this friend, it hit home to the rest.

True they want violence in the streets and we want a violent overthrow at the ballot box. They are emotional and not logic driven we have to be principled logical and resolute. Dems tell you what they are worried about.They are scared to death of the TP and Sarah has them unable to sleep at night. Sarah whether she runs or not is going to continue to be a voice for liberty and drive them nuts and encourage others along the way.
