And President Bush said he was proud of the TEA Party leader.
Oops, I got the story wrong.
James Hoffa, the Teamster leader told a Labor rally in Michigan “We need to take these tea party sons of bitches out” and President Obama just chilled, then praised James Hoffa. That’s Democrat civility for you, right there. Telling a crowd to “take out” political opponents, Teamster style.
There’s a reason why Teamsters is synonymous to Organized Crime. And it’s not the average Teamster union worker. It’s the Teamsters leadership. It’s the Hoffa clan. There are who knows how many Teamsters who don’t even want to be teamsters. I know. I was forced to be a Teamster twice, just to keep my job. If it weren’t for feeding my family, I would never have signed the piece of paper allowing the Teamsters to steal money from my paycheck.
But when the Teamster leader, who makes 300k off of union dues the lowly workers pay, stands in front of a crowd and uses extraordinarily violent and hate-filled rhetoric and the President — who demanded civility out of his opponents — is thankful to him? And the Left wonders why we Conservatives don’t climb into bed with them and help destroy this country. Sorry, Liberals. There is a large grass-roots mass of people who refuse to show signs of battered wife syndrome, to your utter shock and dismay.
But it didn’t just stop with crime boss and Teamster leader James Hoffa and his Obama stooge. No, Joe Biden chimed in as well, at an AFL-CIO rally. “You are the only folks keeping the barbarians from the gates.”
A Rockford, Illinois TEA Party leader calls for James Hoffa to resign. From the Daily Caller via Hot Air Headlines:
After Teamsters union president Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. called for a “war” against Republicans and tea partiers on Monday, one tea party group is calling for the union leader to resign.
“Calls to violence can never be acceptable in this civil society,” the Rockford, Illinois tea party group said in a statement. “Hoffa’s remarks were made in an introduction to Obama speaking to Auto Workers and Unions in Detroit and this sort of angry, hateful, call to violence should be repudiated by the President with a call from the President to ask Hoffa to resign his very public position of influence.”
The Rockford tea party called Hoffa’s comments “incendiary and dangerous.”
“If even one member of the Tea Party is harmed by anyone after Hoffa’s call to violence, then Hoffa should be held accountable by the Justice System and Charged appropriately,” the group said.
