The socialists are getting restless. The One hasn’t completed the fundamental transformation of America, and they don’t like it.
There’s a big socialist march scheduled this weekend in Washington, DC. It’s astroturf all the way, with unions and the NAACP providing free bus rides and even free food to get people to the rally. (I wonder how much of the funding comes from us, the taxpayer.) Even Obama’s Organizing for America and some liberal churches are getting in on the action. (No matter how many people show up, expect the media to inflate the numbers.)
These people hate the tea party movement – it’s a threat to their existence, or at least their subsistence. They aren’t about to go down without a fight. AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka led a panel discussion with folks from the Nation, the New York Times and the Center for American Progress. Trumka accused tea partiers and Fox News of fomenting anger and hatred, and said they need to channel that anger and help the confused see the light.
We have to offer working people something other than the dead-end choice between the failed agenda of greed and the voices of hate and division and violence.
The future envisioned by Trumka.
we need to fundamentally restructure our economy and re-establish popular control over the private corporations which have distorted our economy and hijacked our government. That’s a long-term job, but one we should start now.
Popular control over private corporations, gee what could go wrong? Doesn’t that sound a bit like nationalization?
I wonder if President Obama will give a little pep talk, like this one, to rally the troops.
When he tells people to “get out there and do everything that you can,” does he mean he wants them doing stuff like this:
The revelations and arrest of a SEIU member in Washington state for forging signatures on a ballot initiative to raise taxes, the Wisconsin SEIU activist who bragged about the media’s complicity in helping to defeat GOP gubernatorial candidate Scott Walker, as well as the revelations of what appears to be an unbelievably large amount of voter registration fraud in Texas, all must have Democrats feeling a little queasy about being seen too close to the President and his fuscha friends.
To make embarrassing relationships even worse comes this news from over the weekend: …
(Make sure you read this one – it’s a who’s who of socialists and union collusion.)
Obviously, these union goons and socialists all support Democrats. Do you think your own Democrat Congressman isn’t supported by them? You may want to think again. A quick search shows me that two SEIU locals endorsed Dan Maffei (NY25) – here and here. The statewide AFL-CIO also endorsed him. Obviously, they believe Dan Maffei is the best person to help advance their socialist, taxpayer mugging agenda. In other local races they endorsed Bill Owens, Scott Murphy, Michael Arcuri, Louise Slaughter, and of course, Maurice Hinchey – all Democrats.
