The Blaze ^ | 12/18/12 | Tiffany Gabbay

A photo depicting what appears to be the Teamsters Union flag improperly flying above the American flag outside the union’s D.C. headquarters on Tuesday was sent to TheBlaze, and the story of how a Marine veteran who tried to bring it to the group’s attention was treated is sure to raise eyebrows.

The photo was taken by the Marine at approximately 2:10 pm ET and sent to TheBlaze by his brother. Both have requested anonymity for fear of retaliation by the union.

This is the picture:

Why? Because they are the mob/brownshirt enforcer arm of the democrat party and nobody will tell them what to do.

It’s a clear violation. The union morons are either too dumb to figure it out or just don’t give a damn. My guess is both.

Perhaps it’s because in the fantasies of the union thugs and the rest of the damn socialists, they believe they have conquered America.

The union thugs I’ve seen on tv recently are fat, violent and stupid. Can they figure this rule out?

The Teamsters are a foreign nation, they just happen to live in the United States.

Thanks Nachum.

Maybe they’re signifying that they won because Tony Camargo won. He hasn’t been detained yet, has he? The media is treating the Camargo story like the Islamization of Egypt with 0bama’s help; Like it didn’t happen.

The Flag Union is probably off duty. When they get back the will fix this, I am sure.

Possibly because they are flying the U.S. flag at half staff to mourn the deaths of the schoolchildren in Conn.

See what happens after Christmas.

Because they’re traitorous, commie dogs who willingly participate in our country’s and their own destruction.

Anyone who wants to call them thuggish idiots will get no argument from me.

Nothing criminal here on the part of the Teamsters, since they can do pretty much whatever they want in terms of the physical appearance of their own property. But it’s a clear violation of flag etiquette, and one more indication of their condescending attitude toward American tradition and American patriotism. They could be thumbing their noses at conservatives in general on the heels of the Michigan right to work controversy.

The unions are “international” while America is “national” so they think they’re superior.

The unions are “international” while America is “national” so they think they’re superior.

That's one way of looking at, and they may have taken their formal name, "International Brotherhood of Teamsters," from the communist jargon - "international" and "brotherhood" - popular among labor unions in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.

But for about a century or so, the American union movement has been pretty much divided between the unions dominated by communism and socialism and the unions dominated by organized crime. The Teamsters, with their legacy of Jimmy Hoffa and violence, fall into the latter classification, or so it would seem.

Wonder if they might be uncomfortable with "Brotherhood" in their name, since many on the left are into mandating "gender neutral" language.
