Yet Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. did that when he warmed up a crowd in Michigan before President Obama addressed them. In his own words, Hoffa roared;
“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,”.
He then declared;
“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,”.
Had Sarah Palin, Rand Paul, Mitt Romney, John Boehner, Newt Gingrich or any other Republican made such public, or even private remarks, not only would they be forced to walk those words back, they would forever be labeled as violent extremists.
But if you notice, it is only the right that has an extremist wing. The left does not seem to have one accordin to Democrats or the lamestream media. You never hear Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, an admitted and committed socialist, or Nancy Pelosi being called an extremist by Chris Matthews, Wolf Blitzer, Jonathon King, Candy Crowley or any of their comrades. But Michele Bachmann sure is an extremist according to them. You never hear socialist organizations such as La Razza , or the SEIU being called extreme, but you sure hear those in the TEA movement being called extreme.
Yet today we heard a perfect example of liberal extremism (which amounts socialism), from Jimmy Hoffa, . Today we heard the leader of a wing of the extremist left call those who disagree with his totalitarian beliefs, “sons of bitches” and told his thuggish minions to take those who disagree with him “out” and rid the nation of any differences of opinion in an attempt to take the America for themselves. Be they spoken figuratively or literally, these are words you would expect to have been spoken by Stalin, Mussolini, Hitler, Idi Amin, Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden and Maxine Waters. They are not the words of an American leader and they are not the words that should be representative of any American political ideology.
But somehow these words are acceptable because they are spoken by the leader of an overwhelmingly Democrat dominated union and in celebration of Labor Day. And our President simply went along with those words without rejecting any of them. That in essence was an endorsement of Jimmy Hoffa’s divisive and provocative language and call to arms. Yet just a few short months ago President Obama said the following in the wake of the horrific shooting spree in Tuscon that killed and maimed nearly two dozen people, including Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords;
“But at a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized – at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do – it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.”
Since then, union thugs have beaten on TEA party members, Maxine Waters has told the TEA Party to go to hell, Jimmy Hoffa calls upon union members to take out the opposition, and an endless array of hate filled, disrespectful, rhetoric has been randomly thrown around by the left, against those who have a different opinion than them. It’s time for President Obama to either put his extremist buddies, from Bill Ayers, to Jimmy Hoffa, in their place and demand that they adhere to the advice he offered in Tucson, or he needs to take credit for the war that his friends and allies are calling for and that he is participating in.
For if it is war that the left wants, I am more than willing to give it to them, and so are tens of millions of other Americans,……….. Americans who do not appreciate being held hostage to the whims of big unions and federal czars. Americans who are tired of seeing the government take their wealth and use it to enslave the people to the federal bureaucracy through agencies like the E.P.A. or legislation like Obamacare. If it is war that the left wants, bring it on! Because to tell you the truth, I am just looking for an excuse to wage a battle against them. I am tired of being the victim of the Democrat Party’s double standard and having to be politically correct to avoid being called a right wing radical. I am tired of the failed liberal ideology that is turning America into everything that it was designed not to be. And I am tired of Democrats from the President on down, not taking responsibility for their words, their deeds, and the devastating results of their policies.
In the meantime, to take a tone similar to Jimmy Hoffa, Jr., I hope and suggest that he follows in his father’s footsteps and disappears. I also prepare myself for the battle Hoffa, President Obama, and the Democrat Party wishes to wage. Hopefully it is a battle fought at the ballot box and not with the bats that union thugs and anti-TEA Party Democrats typically use. But either way, I’ll be ready. And for those of you who will now tell me that this is not the right attitude to have………don’t tell me. Tell it to our President! Maybe after nearly three years in office, he should start showing some leadership and set the proper tone?
On a final note, I would just like to add that if Jimmy Hoffa thinks he’s tough, he should come ‘on over here to Jersey. I got a Governor who’ll kick his ass and throw his considerable weight around to the res of the goon union bosses out there in their place.
