Skip to comments.White House Declines Comment On Union Leaderís Anti-Tea Party Rhetoric At Labor Day Rally
Posted on 09/05/2011 4:08:50 PM PDT by penelopesire
Despite President Obamas repeated claims to change the tone in Washington, the White House has no comment this afternoon on incendiary statements made by a union leader who spoke before the president at todays Labor Day rally. Warming up the crowd before President Obamas speech in Detroit this afternoon, Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. warned the largely-union crowd that the Tea Party was waging a war on workers and said that, come November, they should take these sons of bitches out. We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? Theyve got a war, they got a war with us and theres only going to be one winner. Its going to be the workers of Michigan, and America. Were going to win that war, Hoffa told thousands of workers gathered for the annual event organized by the Detroit Labor Council. President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march
Lets take these sons of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong, he concluded.

I am gonna call alot more than my CC!
Yep, whatever happened to the lessons of Tucson????
Or do the lessons of Tucson only apply to Republicans? Apparently those using incendiary rhetoric in support of liberal causes get an exemption from the lessons of Tucson.
You betcha! Mr. “get in their faces” pos poser will have no comment regarding his ugly calls for violence along with his union thugs calls to violence today. But he’ll scream like a little girl if conservatives say anything like what was said at the union party today.
The media would be at red alert Defcon 1 had something like this been said at a Republican rally and subsequently dismissed with a no comment.
We need to call for Obuggery’s resignation.
What would Gabby say?
I’m shocked I tell you, SHOCKED!
On the web, ABC and FOX are the only networks even mentioning Hoffa’s remarks. I assume the others are censoring this on their ‘news programs’ too.
Good...I am livid over this blatant war-mongering on the American people by this President and his party. We had the black caucus members out all last week trying to incite mob violence. We have ‘flash mobs’ beating up white people all across the country...and nothing!
THIS IS NOT HOW A PRESIDENT IS SUPPOSE TO ACT!
IMPEACH THE US POTENTATE!
The MSM doesn’t want to call this “violent rhetoric” I see.
SILENCE IS CONSENT...
SILENCE IS CONSENT...
Hoffa should resign. We don’t need to call for civil war in this climate.
Pray for America
my first thought as well...we are at the point in time with See BS covering fast & furious as they are and now this, the criminal liberal media is even finding it impossible to cover for the liar and hypocrite in the WH..
I think it was “let’s take out these sons of bitches” not just ‘take them’
“We need to call for Obuggerys resignation.”
We could always start a petition at the new WH site called We The People. It’s open to anyone over the age of 13 dontchaknow. /s
The commie union thugs have declared war on America. I bet it was someting in that pizza that Al Qaeda bought them when they were protesting in Madison. You can bet I’ll be letting my representative and Senators know about this.
“To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.” -
— Abraham Lincoln
Surprisingly enough, ABC’s piece is not uncritical. Read their account and you know he’s a hypocritical, lying dork.
I will not buy anything that has the “Union Made” label on it.
and to think they said we were just astroturf
Jake Tapper was anchoring ABC news tonight.
I wonder if Diane Sawyer will mention it tomorrow night?
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I think Obama didn’t know what Hoffa said ,because in was not written on the teleprompter and he probably thought Hoffa was saying nice things about him
Of course! The media are nothing but the new politburo to American’s new marxist dictator.
Given the statements by Mr Hoffa and Vice-President Biden today, I am buying ammunition to prepare for the war I expect is coming.
Either you tell them to back down or I will assume you to be my enemy as well.
A war was just declared on American citizens. If our government cannot even address the declaration it is completely worthless.
I'm shocked, too.
I am SOOOO happy this happened. It will overshadow the DUMBASS POTUS’ speach on Thursday and makes this the topic. Awesome.
It’s so easy to despise this entire gaggle of Obamalunatics!
Yep..This Mary chick is getting hammered by the left in the comments section on her original report of this too. Media Matters is out trying their best to spin the whole thing. I don’t think it’s gonna work...the whole internet is on fire right now!
We should thank her for her honest reporting!

Cite the poisonous environment and the White House's unwillingness to condemn it.
Suggest some "cooling off" time for Obambi. That ought to get his head spinning.
Thanks narses and Nachum for pinging your lists!
Well, here we are. Living in a nation led by someone who looks the other way when even a man introducing said leader tells the crowd to ‘take out’ the opposition. And the crowd CHEERS.
There is not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America - there’s the United States of America. —Barack Hussein Obama, 2004, DNC speech
I don’t know whether to laugh,scream or cry right now. I’ve never seen such an irresponsible act by a sitting US PRESIDENT in all of my days.
This man is seriously dangerous to the very unity of the United States!
Geesh....POST THE WHITE HOUSE NUMBER and give OBAMA an EARFUL.
At least that was the info I was provided second hand. I make it a point never to watch him myself.
Oh PLEASE!! of COURSE Obama heard what Hoffa said.....Obama is as big a THUG as Hoffa and the REST of the union thugs!
As usual.... Hypocrites and their double standards.
That’s what happens when absolutely everything they utter is always for political gain. They end up not being able to back anything up.
What complete losers!
Maybe you are just 29 and don’t realize that someone in the network has to GIVE YOU TIME to go in front of a mic and get airtime!! It;s not like you think.....and the leftist media do NOT want to give our side one minute on these things.
You are right.I have actually been reading the comment sections at news sites with this story and quite a few union members are condemning it.
Here ya go:
EVERYONE should CALL the WHITE HOUSE with your disapproval!!!!!
Failure to comment on it and denounce it is tantamount to Obama saying it himself. We’ve always know it was how he feels.....’...they’ll have to ride in the back of the bus.....they bring a knife, we bring a gun......if the power of persuasion does not work, then we will use the persuasion of power....and on and on it goes.
Well allrighty, then.
