Skip to comments.James Hodgkinson -- Look for the Union Label
Posted on 06/22/2017 10:38:15 AM PDT by Kaslin
A good deal of analysis has gone into James Hodgkinson, the Friend of Bernie and neosocialist wacko who tried to murder the Republicans in Congress by an act of terrorism. Yes, he hated Trump and all Republicans. Yes, he waxed poetic over high taxes and MSNBC. Yes, he was abusive to his foster children (one committed suicide by immolating herself with gasoline while the other ran away -- after Jimmy knocked her around -- and eventually died of a heroin overdose as a young adult.) Yes, he was estranged from his wife (gone since March to live in his van in the D.C. area.) But one aspect of his life that caught my eye is that he was a union carpenter.
Many years ago, I worked at a grocery store. I was responsible for opening up for deliveries and checking in the product. Once there was a strike against a major beer distributor, a particularly ugly one. The distributor hired temporary delivery workers. One day I opened the door for a delivery and the driver came in -- white as a sheet. He said "look at this" and showed me the shotgun blasted windshield of his truck; the striking union thugs tried to murder him to keep him from doing the job that these union people just wouldn't do.
Now our good friend Hodgkinson was a union man. A member of the Carpenter's Regional Council -- a carpenter's union -- and was an independent contractor before becoming a home inspector. I think this is important.

Union Thugs are the same all over......thugs.................
Hillary’s team used to call in union goons to rough up protesters (eye gouge, etc). There was at least one lawsuit and communications were released that showed they knew they were getting violent enforcers for crowd control. Decades old news.
Union thugs lynched those breaking strikes in the 30s. Not all lynchings were racial or over criminal activity.
so he’s no longer a union member? i dunno...i think this is a bit of a stretch. not saying that there are union thungs that do nasty things, but to pin this on ‘unions’ because the guy used to be a member...i dunno
He was a union goon like we thought.
“”””Labor unions are little more than an arm of the Democratic Party.””””
They are an extension of the Stalinist regime.
And don't forget the Veritas videos (TYPICAL AMERICAN VOTER IN 2016:"Gee, what the heck are the Veritas Videos? I never saw them on NBC or in the Wall Street Journal? Are they some kind of documentary?") where the liberal political operatives being filmed bragged about using union thugs to incite and inflict violence at conservative rallies, because "they could always be trusted for that kind of thing".
My son in law, also a deplorable, had to choose between the top of the line Weber grill made in America and a comparable Canadian made grill. The Weber was $7000 and the Napoleon Prestige Pro 825 was $4200. Guess which one he bought and I don’t blame him. It is great to Buy American but American better be competitive!
Anybody know what the unions did to Mary Jo Kophecne?
Thanks. Some say he was also a member of SEIU which is worse.
Back in the late 80’s early 90’s I had a friend who opened up a non-union coal mine in eastern Kentucky. He as a Vietnam vet and saw heavy combat with lots of wounds, later he was a “company” employee after retiring from the army and government service.
One morning he was coming into work and noticed as he pulled up his employees were starting to get in their trucks to leave and he got out and said what the hell is going on here? Then some fine UMWA goons stepped forward and told him his employees were taking the day off to think about joining the union, did he have a problem with that in a menacing and intimidating stances.
He replied I didn’t get shot multiple times and nearly die to be told how to run my company by a bunch of *&&%^&^%^&^%$%$## like you. If you want to go the route you are threatening we can. I can drive in here and out of here shooting as I drive each morning and I can guarantee I will give more than I get and I can find out where each one of you lives! Now you *&^%$###%&** get the hell off my work site and you better not show up again messing with my employees and then looked at his employees and said get the hell back to work and ignore these wussies. The UMWA goons left and never came back. He had a reputation for following through on a threat if you forced him to make one.
“So he’s no longer a union member?”
Um...he’s no longer an active member of anything.
He’ll still be voting Democrat at the next election. He was from Illinois, after all.
And the leader, Robert Creamer, took his marching orders EVERY day from Hillary personally or her campaign. He also visited the White House hundreds of times 2009-2016, and with Obama some 40 times.
Adios to the rule of Law, until We the People take it back.
