From Real Clear Politics:
Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa had some profane, combative words for Republicans while warming up the crowd for President Obama in Detroit, Michigan on Monday.
“We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They’ve got a war, they got a war with us and there’s only going to be one winner. It’s going to be the workers of Michigan, and America. We’re going to win that war,” Jimmy Hoffa Jr. said to a heavily union crowd.
“President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these son of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong,” Hoffa added.
The trouble is that I don’t think union rules allow fighting after 5 pm unless the party bosses start paying double time…and as fighting opens up the prospect of injury, the unions might have a huge problem with disability claims. And just what is the Davis-Bacon “prevailing wage” for union goonery?
Message to Hoffa – there are vastly more of us than there are of you…and, if you really want a fight, our side is much better armed…I’m not at all worried about the outcome of a fight between unionized government bureaucrats and the regular folks of the TEA Party…a huge number of whom are former military, after all.
