Former Amalgamated Transit Union local 689 president Mike Golash, now an “Occupy” movement organizer, was caught on tape Sunday revealing his political goals: overthrowing capitalism in the United States and instituting a communist government.

Now, is openly advocating the overthrow of our government (whether you call it capitalistic or not) is a crime. That question might hinge on whether the word "violent" is involved.

None the less these people are the enemy of all free people and have no loyalty to this nation.

Hey unions: if you overthrow capitalism, there won’t be enough blood in the economy for you to suck.

If unions want their members to work for free, why do they keep striking for more wages?

I kind of fantasize about a secret organization of veterans who would kidnap such people, give them plastic surgery and false identity papers, and secretly insert them into North Korea, still unconscious.

What would follow would be like the beginning of the James Bond movie “Die Another Day”, with the commie insisting that he is an ‘important’ American communist, though he doesn’t look like himself and his papers indicate that he is some minor spy trying to infiltrate North Korea.

All this, so he could revel in his new, rather abbreviated life in a “peoples’ communist paradise”.

They were supposed to become Obama's army, organized last year and ready to go this year for the election. Then they went off track and spent their time raping and turning the public against themselves, only to fizzle out before they were needed.

“Progressive labor is a revolutionary communist organization,” Golash said during an Occupy DC “People’s Assembly” on August 19.

“Its objective,” he added, “is to make revolution in the United States, overthrow the capitalist system and build communism.”

And this is a surprise to whom?

The sad part is that Marx has so many sympathizers in the modern United States. And they are oblivious to the fact that free-market America outperformed any and all socialist systems during the last 200 years - in every measurable category.

God raised the United States so high that only we could have caused our downfall.

If everyone is a union member (Communism, essentially) then noone is a union member.

I think the basic line go to work with a pair of pliers and a blowtorch... originally came from a 1970's movie called Charlie Varrick. Quentin Tarantino must have seen the earlier movie.

“I’d use the Marcellus Wallace method of dealing with this piece of excrement...”

In the not too distant past, that is precisely how the union would have dealt with a fellow member who uttered such garbage. Sadly, those days are no more.

At some point, free people have to put violence on the table when their countrymen continually and openly discuss enslaving them.

Little more than ten percent of the workforce is unionized. A great percentage of those unionized were automatically entered upon being hired in a closed shop. Of that ten percent, I doubt more that the level of truly radical workers rises to one tenth of one percent. This idiot is talking out of his anal orifice if he thinks more than a very tiny percentage of unionized workers would follow him in a violent revolution.

“The sad part is that Marx has so many sympathizers in the modern United States.”

The sadder thing is we have no political party to oppose them. The neo-cons don’t want to lose socialist votes by opposing communism, and they want Republicans to be 100% focused on Islamists.

I say “bring it”.... heck, they already are.

It seems to me that these loudmouths should consider that when some folks say they are willing to die for their Freedoms and country, some folks are also will to kill for the same beliefs.

Our country needs calming and real leadership, not this dumbass union crap that is fully supported by Obama and his filthy democrats.

I’ll be so glad when this DAILY attack from within is over, if it ever is....
