Hoffa says, "Take 'em out"!

    Where's all the uproar about this?  When Perry said Texans might get kinda ugly with Bernanke, there was a huge outcry about being civil etc.  But Hoffa, standing in front of the presidential seal, about to introduce Obama, tells the audience to 'take out Republicans,' gets nothing.  Even the White House won't repudiate his statement.  So apparently the endorse violence when it comes to Republicans.  Guess if Gabby Giffords would have been a Republican, it would have been okay to shoot her.

      Are you unaware that that was a clipped quote?

      The part that the GOP conveniently left out is in bold:

      "Everybody here's got to vote. If we go back and keep the eye on the prize, let's take these son of a bitches out and give America back to America where we belong! Thank you very much!"

        He talked about it being a battle, a war, that the union was Obama's army ready to march. He was very militaristic in his imagery. You simply can't ignore this and Obama condoned it all stepping up to the podium right after that intro and refusing to condemn the speech as of yet.

          Of course we can (and should) ignore it.  It was campaign rhetoric, as free of any real meaning as it gets.

        Exact quote!   I mean it's not like it cannot be easily searched?  You added content?


        "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," Jimmy Hoffa said to a heavily union crowd.

        "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," Hoffa added.

    Obama?  Repudiating left-wing nastiness?   That's above his conscience-listening level.


    I remember a time when a foul-mouthed person like Hoffa would get a "Don't you talk about my mother that way" and a bloody nose upon calling someone an s.o.b.

    And usually, rightfully so.  Reckon there were no men in the crowd willing to defend their mothers?

    Anything the Leant Leftists say is just fine with the mass media and the Democrat traitors.

    Between Hoffa, and the CBC talking about "they want to hang us" BS, all this election will be about is race... because that is all the Left is about to begin with.

    A bunch of racists who love to pull the race card.

    What a joke they all are.

    Thats okay... Al Sharpton and his race baitin crew, along with the Black Panthers, threatened to get the tea party in WA. during the Beck rally also... and we see just how far those cowards got.

          I got bad news for you. America is a center RIGHT country. More people identify themselves as conservative (40%) than liberal (20%). The moderates also tend to be more right than left and judging by what the liberals have done to America and Obama's polling on the economy, he's not going to be re-elected... nor is it likely that the dems will have a majority in congress much longer. The good news is you'll have much more to complain about! smile
