Hoffa declares war on GOP, tea party


Today, Jimmy Hoffa (Jr) declared war on the tea party and Congressional Republicans. Warming up a crowd for an Obama Labor Day speech, Hoffa said: “President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these [SOBs] out and take America back to where America we belong.”

“We gotta keep an eye on the battle that we face, a war on workers, and you see it everywhere in the tea party,” he told an enthusiastic crowd of union supporters. “And, there’s only one way to win that war, the one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know, what, they got a war, they got a war with us and there’s only going to be one winner…. We’re going to win that war.”

Noticeably absent from Obama’s speech was any mention of civility or an urging for “no labels.”

    They only call it class warfare when we fight back. None of the politicians is coming to save us, we in the middle class are going to have to find a way to defend ourselves!

    Hoffa and Trumpka’s comments were what I would expect from Union Thugs. The part that got under my skin like a chigger was Secretary Solis pushing the Union Label over everyone else. Everyone else is over 80% of the population. As a Secretary of anything, Ms. Solis should not be picking favorites.

    BTW Holly, the “no labels” crowd has zero credibility with the middle class. Republican stalwarts such as David Frum and Mark McKinnon may have taken some lumps from the Tea Party, but that does not make them progressives! “No labels” is another Republican front group.

    The “war” was declared on America’s public sector workers by the right wing extremists following the 2010 elections. Hoffa is simply calling middle class Americans “to arms” to come to their defense in the next election and throw the tea party politicians out of office.

    Labor unions, collective bargaining, and worker’s rights are not the cause of the weak economy—they are part of the solution. This is a fact those on the right refuse to recognize.
