Figures. Dumbest Website on Internet Defends Hoffa’s Violent, Profanity-Laced Threatening Labor Day
The Gateway Pundit ^ | 9/5/11 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 09/05/2011 7:11:16 PM PDT by Nachum

What a shock. The dumbest website on the internet Media Matters defended Teamster President Jimmy Hoffa’s profanity-laced threatening speech against conservatives today. Media Matters insisted that Hoffa’s remarks were taken out of context. Uh-huh.

And, here is the transcript:

“We like a good fight. And you know what, they got a war and they got a war with us and there’s only going to be one winner and it’s going to be the workers of Michigan and America. We’re going to win that war. All the way. But it starts with your involvement. It starts with next November. We got a bunch of people there that don’t want the president to succeed. And they’re called the tea party. The people that don’t want him to do anything right and he’s working hard for us. And president Obama is frustrated by what’s going on. Well guess what. We got the vote. And the answer what we say is, ‘we remember in November.’ We will beat the tea party and give this country back to workers and America. We can do it together. And we also gotta talk about jobs. I get so tired of these people who sit on these big corporations that send our jobs to Mexico. They send our jobs to China. And they have the audacity to say ‘where are the jobs?’ Well I got news for you It’s time to bring those jobs back to America and put America back to work. That’s what we’ve got to do.”

Just curious, what union has ever started a business,
created jobs etc? They are parasites on the working man
and destroyers of business.

Will Chris Wallace aks Mr. Hoffa on FNS: “Mr Hoffa, you stated that the TEA Party declared war on you. Who said this, and when? Be specific, sir.”

Sounds like he is calling for the literal killing of Tea Party activists. Could this be “code” asking for union thugs to start shooting conservatives?

Unions help drive the businesses out of business. Either that, or they drive businesses to China or Mexico.

Sort of like when the Hutu's heard "Cut the tall trees" on the radio and began slaughtering the Tutsis?

A story told many times has an eager new hire putting out a 100% work effort only to be scolded by the union thugs in the plant to “slow down and take it easy or you're gonna make us all look bad.”

So how does Hoffa deal with that fact that 40% of his union slugs are Republican? Why anyone would stay in a union is a mind blogger.

Beckel loved Hoffa’s rant too.
Is it just me or is watching “The Five” on FNC like having ten root canals and/or finding out that you are out of Miracle Whip for your BLT.
Bobby the Blob,with his cheap red Clairol rinse good for 25 washes, is unwatchable. Talk about a delusional narcissist who finds it amusing to interrupt anyone who tries to say a word, especially the Conservative women, Andrea T. and Kim berly G.. He actually thinks we care what he says. Can’t we ask Rupert and Roger to watch him themselves and then can him?
Why don’t the panelists just tell him to shut the fark up?

Remember Obama and the Dems calling for an end to rhetoric like this in the aftermath of the Giffords shooting.

I CALL B.S. ON MEDIA MATTERS SAYING THE COMMENTS WERE TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT.

The whole point about the lessons of Tucson was that ANY use of violent metaphors, or suggestions about this, was enough to send the deranged minds over the edge, to the point where they shoot somebody. The lesson of Tucson was supposed to be that we have to avoid any such rhetoric. There is no issue of things being metaphorical or taken out of context. We’re supposed to be thinking of how a demented mind hearing things will interpret it.

But it’s more likely that these lessons of Tucson only apply to conservatives. Good Democrats, liberals, radicals, and anarchists can still say and do whatever the heck they want, because the rules are different for them.

The Democrats are exempt from the lessons of Tucson. Only evil conservatives and evil Republicans are held to that standard.

So called “workers” need jobs, and Hoffa’s buds aren’t creating any, no matter how often Jimmy Jr. yells “jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs....”

“A story told many times has an eager new hire putting out a 100% work effort only to be scolded by the union thugs in the plant to “slow down and take it easy or you’re gonna make us all look bad.”

This reminds me of when I first worked when young for major law offices, where you worked at breakneck speed all day long, and accuracy was demanded as well as speed. When I was offered a position at a major University to work for the Director of a Department, I continued to produce my work at the same speed that was expected of me at the law firms. I would place my finished work in a basket for the Director to check and return to me if necessary for changes/corrections, etc. and I would then give the final product back for signature.

One day my Director boss asked me to please slow down on my return of product time as it made her feel that she had to act on it right away, and that made her nervous. She asked me to slow my work product down, so that she would not feel as pressured to act on it. I learn quickly, so I slowed down to what for me was a snail’s pace, and then she was happy. I was frustrated, she was happy, and shortly thereafter I took a job elsewhere on campus that better suited my work habits. Problem solved.

The Five could be a decent show if they got rid of beckel. All he does is make nasty remarks and brag about his drinking and drug use, then claim to be a “Christian”. Every time I’ve watched the show, he had to apologize for something he said the previous day. I wish Gutfeld would ask, “Hey, Bob, been blackmailed by any whores lately?” What a pig. He and Ed Schultz could be twins. (They both brag about being football players, too, which is pretty bad form when you’re a 50 yr old drunk)

They keep Beckel around as an inside joke.

NO real conservative could sit around talking to Bob for long. It’s like casting pearls of wisdom before a LITERAL swine.

I know people around here who think just like Bob. They’re always big labor union guys that repeat the same tired talking points and greedy class envy. I don’t waste much time trying to talk sense into them anymore.

Except without the code words. Hoffa said we’re gonna take these sons of bitches out. We all know what that means, but hope nobody takes him literally.

"Can’t we ask Rupert and Roger to watch him (Beckel) themselves and then can him?"

I suppose they want at least one liberal on the show for "balance". That makes some sense.

Beckel is bad, but Alan Colmes would be a whole lot worse.

After the elections of 1936 in Spain, the Popular Front (composed of Bolsheviks, socialists, atheists and minorities) outlawed their opposition; sounds like the Bolsheviks are trying to do the same here (though their base has a lot less to fight for, being suppressed by their own “president”). God and General Franco ground these creatures into the dust in 3 years; I hope it takes less time to deal with the same forces at work 75 years later.

Don’t forget that in 2000, Beckel urged the Bush electors to violate their oaths and vote for Gore. No one ever calls him on that.

As for Hoffa, his speech was just another Marxist class warfare rant. He is asking Obama to come to Michigan and see what they have done?? Last I heard, Detroit is a wasteland.

The thing that I hate most is the way he bloviates and interrupts the others. And none of them take him on!
Sean calls him “my good friend Bob”. ..okay, maybe he’s a “nice” guy off the set but his views are ridiculous and Rupert needs to know that the listeners aren’t listening to the show because he is there.
Hook anyone?

Not only have I seen that with my own eyes in a unionized department of a former employer, but also I was similarly berated by permanent employees when I was temping at another company for a woman who was on leave.

Check Wikipedia. Beckel was blackmailed by a prostitute, at which time he started claiming to be “born again”, etc. Also, Beckel brags about being a football player, when he was actually a cheerleader. yesterday he was bragging about beating up some guy, and nobody called him on it. He’s only on “The Five” as comic relief, but he ruins the show for me. The only worse choice would be Alan Colmes, but I don’t think the other panelists would put up with his lies and interruptions.
