US congressman Michael Capuano, a far-left Democrat from Massachusetts, was addressing a labor union rally in his home state after the Wisconsin flare-up and said this:
“I’m proud to be with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an e-mail that gets you going. Every once in a while you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary.” (end of excerpt)
A little bloody? In Obama’s new era of civility? Hmmmm…
Here is Democrat US congressman Paul Kanjorksi of Pennsylvania talking about 2010 Republican Florida gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott:
“That Scott down there that’s running for governor of Florida. Instead of running for governor of Florida, they ought to have him and shoot him. Put him against the wall and shoot him. He stole billions of dollars from the United States government and he’s running for governor of Florida. He’s a millionaire and a billionaire. He’s no hero. He’s a damn crook. It’s just we don’t prosecute big crooks.” (end of excerpt)
This is more talk of violence from the ‘peaceful’ Democrats. By the way, Kanjorksi lost his seat in the November 2010 elections after 26 years in Congress. Meanwhile Rick Scott won.
Regarding Capuano’s “bloody” comment, boston.com reported that:
‘The union crowd greeted Capuano’s exhortation with cheers, whistles, and applause.’ (end of excerpt)
After Capuano’s comments received national media attention – and Capuano is said to be considering a run for the US Senate in 2012 – Capuano backtracked and said: “I strongly believe in standing up for worker rights and my passion for preserving those rights may have gotten the best of me yesterday in an unscripted speech. I wish I had used different language to express my passion and I regret my choice of words.”
Well, well, well… So contrite. After he was caught, that is.
Have not we conservatives been warning for decades about the violent mindset in the Democrat party, among the labor-union left and violence-prone liberals all over America (union violence, unfettered access to abortion, inner-city violence, Hollywood violence, sexual violence, defense of criminals and terrorists, rock music violence, mafia violence (organized crime is tightly allied with the Democrat party), etc.)
Indeed. And after the peaceful Tea Parties have been relentlessly attacked for every possible reason including “racism” and “violence” they have exhibited none whatsoever of either. In fact, the first Tea Parties on April 15, 2009 were infiltrated by provocateurs from the left who tried to start confrontations and fights with the Tea Partiers. It did not work.
Capuano’s comment is telling for two reasons: First, it is an example of what is being said among Democrats and leftists behind closed doors every single hour of every day in America. Now with the Wisconsin issue, it simply is coming out into the open.
And second, the union reaction – ‘cheers, whistles, and applause’ – is utterly alarming. Where was the condemnation? Couldn’t one union official have taken the microphone and said “that comment was out of line”?
That did not happen. Because no union official believes it was out of line. This is the violent labor-union left that we are talking about. They were all too busy cheering as they were fantasizing about beating up somebody they disagree with.
So where is the Department of Homeland Security to arrest Capuano for incitement?
Answer: They are too busy groping little old ladies at airports…
Imagine if a Tea Partier had called for his followers to “get a little bloody”. That would be all over the media. And rest assured that the Media Left in America would have covered up Capuano’s comment if they had the power. Unfortunately for Capuano – and fortunately for America – it was reported in a local newspaper and then picked up on the drudgereport.com
By the way, Capuano now can forget running for the Senate. He is finished. He is tainted.
So we Americans now know more clearly who we are dealing with in these labor disputes. And as we conservatives always reject violence and adhere to our Constitutional principles, we will prevail. Labor unions are on the decline in America for greed and for many other reasons, including comments like Capuano’s.
Look at the routine union-organized mob protests at the private homes of people these unions disagree with. There should be state and federal laws against such gatherings. These are not the ‘right of the people peacably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances’ that the 1st Amendment to the Constitution codified. These are mob actions intended to intimidate people in their homes, yet another manifestation of union violence.
Look at the SEIU union beatdown of Kennth Gladney, a black conservative, in St. Louis in Summer 2009.
Look at the rapacious fiscal demands of union workers in both the public and private sectors, causing us all to get poorer through higher prices and higher taxes, while the unions live better and better. And the Democrat party pulls in more and more cash from their union campaign contributors.
These union actions come out of the worst traits of mankind – greed and violence. And it is not necessarily the rank-and-file union members we are talking about. Many of them are opposed to their leaders.
All over Europe, violent protests are being organized by the communist/union left. Yet even in Europe the people see the fiscal handwriting on the wall and are willing to make the necessary concession.
The unions do not, however, and want to push the envelope further and further until they control all wealth. They will fail. The jig is up. The unions are exposed.
