Obama: Imagine if workers could shut down a factory just because they didnít get what they want
Hot Air ^ | OCTOBER 3, 2013 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Via Charles Cooke. Imagine it. Imagine a movement so selfish that it would sabotage the operations of a venture on which vast numbers of people depend simply to gain leverage for its own agenda. Then imagine that that movement grew in numbers to the point where it could elect its own bought-and-paid-for politicians to do its bidding. Who knows how much havoc it could wreak? When you think about it, Democrats are right: It really is a sort of terrorism.

Am I awake?

It’s called a strike. Unions do this all the time.

The difference is that if a worker doesn't like what the employer is doing, he can choose to go elsewhere for employment. Do we have to become expats to free ourselves of this tyranny? I am an American and I will fight for this country!

Just think, we’ve been told he’s the smartest democrat that ever lived.

I don’t have a doubt that’s probably true.

Scary isn’t it.

Exactly - Everything he spews is twisted, based on lies.

The flaw in Obamadork’s little analogy is that government “hires” us — the so-called workers.

And that is how we are being treated when we are really OWN the factory. That is what America is all about.

Some tweets about this:
Hey @IBEW, Obama just said you should be fired for striking. https://twitter.com/nbcwashington/status/385782823384547328 … Can we get your comment on this?

IBEW response:

“the right to strike is protected activity under the NLRA”
and
“When we do strike, we usually know what we are striking over. You might want clarify THAT”

Ya mean, sorta like a union? :-0

Give The Big Choomer a break.

He sometimes has those druggie flashbacks, forgets where he is and thinks he's back in the USSR.

It just shows all along that Democrat trotskyists will not tolerate strikes agains them, just like jaruzelski vs. Solidarnosk.

FDR did the same.

Yes, folks, the Obamadork is really that stupid.

Ah, the pleasures of quotas and liberal guilt.

View from the Faculty Lounge. But even the teachers do it..see, Chicago a few ago.
