President Obama Declares (below) that he’s proud of Jimmy Hoffa after Hoffa declares “war” on the Tea Party and states that his Union is the President’s “army” to march and “take these sons of bitches out.” The pro-Union, pro-Democrat crowd goes wild. President Obama, as far as I know, has not denounced Hoffa’s violent rhetoric. Here’s what the president said:
“We are proud of . . . Teamster President Jimmy Hoffa,” who along with Michigan liberal Congressmen, Senators, and union officials “who are working every single day with your state and local elected officials to create jobs and economic growth and prosperity here in Michigan and across the country.”
After the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, liberals went crazy claiming that “violent rhetoric” led to the shooting. For example, “local sheriff, Clarence Dupnik, said he suspected that the growing vitriol, hate and anger against the government, and the widening rhetoric of armed resistance in the political discourse, played a role in the shootings.” The National Jewish Democratic Council said: “Many have contributed to the building levels of vitriol in our political discourse.” Here’s how TIME magazine reported the story:
Sometimes, rumors of violence beget actual violence. Saturday’s mass shooting at a Safeway on North Oracle Road in Tucson, which killed six and left Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and others gravely wounded, may well be one of those occasions.
Let’s see if we hear Democrats denounce Hoffa and compel him to resign from his union post. Don’t hold your breath. You can view the short videos here.
