Union Goon Jimmy Hoffa Ramps Up the Rhetoric

When Democrats aren’t preaching at us about civil tones, they are spewing the sort of openly violent rhetoric union boss Jimmy Hoffa used to warm up a Detroit crowd for Comrade Obama yesterday:

“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. … President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these son of a bitches out…

If surveyor symbols on a map make left-wing potheads shoot Democrat Congresswomen, as the New York Slimes would have us believe, what do you suppose Hoffa’s bellicose bombast will accomplish?

Obama came on the stage afterward and chastised Hoffa for his divisive tone. Just kidding, of course. President Downgrade took the opportunity to praise the Teamster thug and has refused to condemn the declaration of war on patriotic Americans.

Hoffa is right about this much — it is a war: not between the Tea Party and unions, but between liberty and coercion, between America and whatever liberals are trying to “fundamentally transform” it into, between prosperity and penury, between good and evil.

On tips from Bob Roberts, Shawn, Hail the Amberlamps!, Gary, G. Fox, and Byron.

    I see you are unable to acknowledge that the FOX tape above has been carefully edited.

    Here are the comments made by Hoffa, the bold part is what FOX edited out:

    We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face, a 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.

    President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. And President Obama, we want one thing: jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs! That’s what we’re going to tell him. He’s gonna be … and when he sees what we’re doing here, he will be inspired. But he needs help. And you know what? Everybody here’s got to vote. If we go back, and we keep the eye on the prize, let’s take these son of a bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong. Thank you very much.

    WAR?

    Bring it on, you greasy POS

  • lao

    So Hoffa’s message to Obama, no surprise, is “we want jobs”.

    Gee Blount, what was your concern five threads down?

    Happy Labor Day From Comrade Obama

    In honor of Labor Day, President Downgrade visits one of the unemployment lines he has done so much to create:

  • RKae

    Plural is “sons of bitches.”

    Idiot thug.

  • Hail The Amberlamps!

    Any psychiatrists out there want to crack this nutbag troll and why it missile-tone and locks on any evidence of Bolshevism to excuse and rehabilitate it? Do Sorosians get theme-specific assignments?

    Really thought we were rid of this herpetic chicken buggerer.

  • Hail The Amberlamps!

    By troll I mean Crosshairs! Crosshairs! a.k.a. “lao.”

  • lao

    You have a problem with the truth hailstorm?

  • StanInTexas

    The whole Blog-O-Sphere is ablaze with these Liberal ilk EXPLAINING what Hoffa meant and what his INTENTION was in saying what he said?

    How many of you remember the same Liberals taking that same approach with Bush’s speech to foreign governments of “You are either with us or against us.”? What about Palin’s targeting Congressional districts on a map?

    ANYONE????

    …anyone???

    Bueller?

  • Hail The Amberlamps!

    You have no truth, commie. You have propaganda. You have lies. You have deception.

    But there is no truth in you.

    Hypocrite.

  • StanInTexas

    Lao-See, the TRUTH is that you have to explain Hoffa’s INTENT in order to make his words seem less violent. I don’t recall you giving and consideration to Palin’s intent, or Perry’s, or Bush’s.

    Don’t lecture us on the truth until you become familiar with it yourself!

  • lao

    Gee hailstorm, was I lying when I quoted the part of Hoffa’s speech that FOX edited out?

    Was I lying when I quoted Blount’s own thread?

    It’s quite plain you have absolutely no connection with reality.

  • StanInTexas

    Lao-See, your quoting of Blounts argument was a pathetic attempt to divert from the topic. Also, Obama had two years of Congressional majorities to work on job, and all we got for it was double-digit unemployment. Now all he can do is whine for the REPUBLICANS to do something about jobs.

    Pathetic!

  • SR

    “We like a good fight.” “they got a war and they got a war with us and there’s only going to be one winner” “We’re going to win that war.” “We got a bunch of people there that don’t want the president to succeed. And they’re called the tea party.” “We will beat the tea party” “‘President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march.” “Let’s take these sons a bitches out”
    Gee, I hope some Jared Loughner leftist type doesn’t act on this kind of violent rhetoric.

  • Profiler

    Another terriffic union driven decision supported by Comrade Sotero

  • blue

    Lao – I read the edited out part several times, I’m confused…

    if “the son of a bitches” were not a reference to the tea party, who was it a reference to – the union members???

  • Profiler
  • blue

    and lao , are we done analyzing what Obama meant when in a speech he said “being a gun to a knife fight”???

  • http://conservativetruthhq.blogspot.com/2011/09/does-anyone-believe-that-boob-anymore.html Laurie T

    Hey Lao:

    You’re taking delight in Hoffa asking for “jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs”, but you’re missing an important point.

    Back in 2009, Hussein Obama pushed passage of the Stimulus Bill which he said “This plan will save or create over 3 million jobs” (http://bit.ly/mVG3is). Two years later we have 9.3% unemployment, a record number of people on food stamps, and the first downgrade of American credit in history.

    So why do you believe Obama anymore? Why does Hoffa believe Obama will create jobs when it’s obvious he won’t or can’t? It’s for two reasons:
    1. Hoffa is getting a financial kickback from Obama.
    2. You’re just a drooling idiot with slavish hero-worship of Obama, despite his obvious incompetence at everything he does.

    Fortunately, only 14% of Americans are union labor, and the remaining 86% are smarter than you. Expect Obama to lose in a landslide in 2012.

  • Hail The Amberlamps!

    The entire quote still contains violent rhetoric. You can wrap a call-to-arms inside a carefully crafted and rehearsed veil of plausible deniability, but when a goonion Bolshevik hears the appeal to emotion kernel he will be prompted to act violently. This is entirely inconsistent, the exact polar opposite of President Downgrade’s cheesy pleas and crocodile tears post Giffords. It’s Comintern Propaganda 101, transparent, predictable, inexcusable. You look like a fool trying to excuse and rehabilitate it.

    Your schtick is beyond tired lao. It’s a neurosis.

  • lao

    texastan claims: The whole Blog-O-Sphere is ablaze with these Liberal ilk EXPLAINING what Hoffa meant and what his INTENTION was in saying what he said?

    Check here to see which side is doing the most “explaining”.

    Memeorandum

  • blue

    and lao, if Hoffa did not mean let’s take out the Tea Party, why is the White House’s official position on the matter “No Comment”???

  • AZRon

    Quote: And President Obama, we want one thing: jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs, …etc.

    I wonder who the “we” that he speaks of is. He doesn’t give two shits about Americans that don’t pay union dues.

    It’s kinda’ like when Sharpton and Jackson decry black on black violence. They get to claim agressor and victim status all at the same time.

    Idiots all

  • blue

    and lao, you still have not explained why Obama is such a Stuttering Clusterf**ck of a Miserable Failure

  • SR

    Implementing Saul Alinsky’s Rule No. 12, “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it,”

    The target is the TeaParty.

  • Grunt

    Since Lao is doing a repeat from another thread, I’ll do one, too.

    Lao, Hoffa was shrieking that he wants “Job-Jobs-Jobs” for the UNIONS, not for the NON-UNIONS.
    He wants to build a stronger force for the Unions so they have the power to prevent the People who are NON UNION from having any say in anything.
    “These sons-of-bitches” mans anyone who isn’t union.
    That’s why Unions try to get close to politicians, so they can strong-arm others for their interests and have weight in the lobby.

    You’re such a hack, Lao.

    Why do these idiots insist that being on the Right somehow means you ONLY watch FOX news? Are they upset because we’re not with them watching the daily ball-washing and butt licking from NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, et al?

  • StanInTexas

    Lao-See, Hoffa’s words require no explaination, just like Obama’s “They Bring a Knife, We Bring a Gun” or “Hit Back Twice As Hard” or “We talk to these folks so I know whose ass to kick.” or “Punish your enemies.”

    Funny that!

  • GoY

    lao is just parroting the MediaMatters spin, like the good little mindless drone he is.

    The thing that strikes me is the allegedly edited portion just makes the quoted portion even more bellicose.

  • jimmy

    I am sure we will get all of the hand-wringing about the violent rhetoric and the “new civility” that is so necessary these days. No? Oh, that is only when Sarah Palin puts cross-hairs on a map. I’m sure if she would have just talked about “going to war” and “taking them out”, it would have been A OK.

  • Tom T

    This is the Union rhetoric that has drove the jobs overseas. Our Gangster President is again in bed with the union thugs.

  • lao

    “allegedly edited” Yardsale? Oh my, you do have to reach don’t you?

    What happened, did that portion of his speech get deleted by mistake?

    Grunt tries to make it an issue that a union President talking to a union audience is calling for union jobs.

    Well duh?

  • StanInTexas

    Loa-See, if he had confined his remarks to union jobs, this thread would not exist. Instead, Hoffa took his speech into a different territory, directly attacking the Tea Party.

    But since you agree with his violent rhetoric, it’s fine and can be explained away.

    Hey, did you hear Perry’s latest comment on Gun Control. REAL violence there!

  • blue

    here is what ABC is reporting

    Despite President Obama’s repeated claims to change the tone in Washington, the White House had no comment this afternoon after Teamsters Union leader James Hoffa, speaking at an event before President Obama, said of Tea Party activists that, come November, Democrats should “take these sons of bitches out.”

    ABC report reads just like Fox report

    explain that lao

  • GoY

    I’d be curious to know in what context a union leader referring to patriotic Americans as “sons of bitches” and threatening to “take them out” while the president looks on approvingly can be considered a benign statement?

    Let me try something:

    Kittens are soft! Puppies are playful! I like mittens! Let’s take those sons of bitches out!”

    Nah, still sounds like a violent threat to me.

  • Grunt

    Exactly, LaoBlow…he whines that UNIONS need to have MORE jobs, but don’t give a damn about the folks that are NON UNION.

    Our “PRESIDENT” should care for AMERICANS UNIFORMLY, not just those who contribute to his campaign trail.

    So buggar off.

  • Had it up to here :/

    Big talk is still the best deal around. We’ll see who takes who out when it’s all said and done, Mr. Hoffa. By the way, I thought someone already “took you out”…..

  • Dr. Dave

    Time for Hoffa to visit his dad.

  • Kevin R.

    That’s how the president of the United States is introduced by his supporters? With violent us vs them demagoguery?

    This administration continues to hit new lows.

  • thedarkericdumbass

    I tought Jimmy Hoffa was dead?

    RKae beat me to it.

  • SR

    How fitting Hoffa and Little Bammie giving speeches in Union Democrat run city as prosperous as Detroit. The Mogadishu of the west.

  • lao

    Sorry Grunter, I must have missed something. At what point in his speech did Hoffa say “I don’t give a damn about the folks that are NON UNION.”

    Oh wait, I should have known, you are INTERPRETING what he said.

    By the way, I notice that ABC managed to present the video without somehow “losing” a portion of it like FOX did.

  • Resident Loon

    Please tell us, oh wise and powerful lao, how Fox’s editing changes the meaning of “Son of a bitches out?”

  • Dupree

    Lao-sy wants us to remember that the clip was edited, not that the edit took out no relevant information what-so-ever. “See! See! They edited! They’re spinning!” Back to reality, the edit did not change the meaning at all. (LOL GoY)

  • GoY

    Some lefties are spinning that “take these sons of bitches out” refers to voting against Tea Parties. Kind of a silly interpretation, considering he was referring to his union thugs as an “Army.” Armies don’t take people out by voting against them.

    Maybe he meant “let’s take these son of a bitches out and buy them a nice dinner.”… but there’s nothing in the context of the speech to indicate that was his meaning.

  • fxdwg69

    Bring it, union punks. Like most thugs and bullies, teamsters are only tough when they travel in gangs. Catch one alone and s/he’ll start crying like a little girl.

  • Grunt

    Well, LaoBlow, it’s fairly easy to glean from it when you have a Union Boss screeching about jobs for the Union (well, DUH!) yet has no concessions for the non-union folks, yet, he refers to Tea Party patriots as Sons of Bitches that need to be TAKEN OUT.

    The great majority of those in the Tea Party are for small government and against the tactics employed by the crooks on the left (which are pro union).

    Pretending he meant anything otherwise is a deliberate act of stupidity on your part, and to coin the words of Ron White, “Y’cain’t fix stupid.”

  • Jodie

    “3 Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?”

    Amos 3

  • GoY

    If Hoffa were really about “jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs…” maybe he’d drop some of the union hostility toward, you know, the businesses that provide them.

  • Grunt

    Tell me, what was the motivation to keep Boeing out of a right to work state, as opposed to stifling its growth by keeping it in a Union controlled state?

    Tell me this “President” wants America working when he seems to favour Unions like he does. I suppose it’s an easy friendship to make–not much difference between being a Union Boss and a “Community Organizer”–’cept maybe pay-scale.

    So, while Obama keeps the “masses” (non-union, non-paid, all carrying a “racial grudge”) stirred up, the MSM (also supportive of their little Chawklit Massiyah, just don’t…y’know.. hold them to that!) can trumpet that the Tea Party patriots are the bad guys (they can’t prove it, they just say so, so take their word!), you’ve got the SIEU and others (like Hoffa) keeping the nest of well-paid rabble stirred up.

    And they say the Tea Party is the violent bunch.

    If you took these people and dipped them in clue-pheromones and set them in a corralled field chock-a-block with clues in heat in the middle of the clue-rutting season, they STILL couldn’t get a clue.

    THis is why Blount is a hypocrite at best. Becasue he closes his column being critical of inflated rhetoric with this:

    “Hoffa is right about this much — it is a war: not between the Tea Party and unions, but between liberty and coercion, between America and whatever liberals are trying to “fundamentally transform” it into, between prosperity and penury, between good and evil.”

  • TaterSalad

    Well, Barack Obama has done it yet again. He has used our taxpayers money to ferry around Union bosses to Detroit this past weekend on Air Force One. This puts “new meaning” to Labor Day at the taxpayers expense while the Teamster boss, Jimmy Hoffa, jr. calls the Tea Party SOB’s. ………and we paid for this!

  • Kevin R.

    The point is, Hoffa declares that there is a war on workers. He then insinuates that the Tea Party is conducting the war against workers.

    The Tea Party stands for everything that will bring about economic prosperity and therefor what “workers” need. Obama’s policies have thrown a great big monkey wrench in the economy and have harmed workers throughout the land.

    You lefties really want more of this? You really want this to continue and get worse?

  • TaterSalad

    People who join the Unions “now” and pay dues to these thugs that are in charge are nothing but the same thing. “You are who you hang with”.
