Taking Back America!
James Hoffa, the current President of the Teamsters Union told a crowd at President Obama's Labor Day Rally, "President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let's take these son of bitches out..."
Once again the supporters of President Obama are calling on 'their troops' to take action and doing it using inflammatory rhetoric that borders on a direct call for violence. They have no fear anymore of showing what they truly think.
After being lectured by President Obama when the Arizona shooting took place for a "New Era of Civility in US Politics" he shows his true colors by remaining silent when his supporters openly and enthusiastically talk of "war" with his opponents and "taking them out." Today's "Words of War" follow closely on the heels of last weeks remarks by Rep Andre Carson, "The Tea Party wants to see Blacks hanging from a tree", and Maxine Waters telling the Tea Party to "Go Straight To Hell."
Attacking and demonizing the Tea Party is the Democrats "New Way" of attacking Republicans and Conservatives. They feel they can say virtually anything against the Tea Party and get away with it. Apparently that is correct because no one on their side is telling them to stop. Instead the vitriol seems to be getting more intense almost on a daily basis.
The Democrats feel they are on to something with this line of rhetoric and it is encouraging them to do more. Sadly to say, their message may be working as a recent Fox News Poll shows that only 12% of voters consider themselves a member of the Tea Party but even more troubling is that 42% of voters have an unfavorable view of the Tea Party while 29% have a favorable view.
"The Tea Party got a lot of negative publicity during the debt ceiling negotiations and most American voters either don't like the group or don't know enough about it to make a decision," said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
Think about that for just a moment. The Tea Party is just a collection of ordinary citizens that are fed up with out of control government spending. These are people that are so afraid that the country is going to collapse from the huge debt it has they spontaneously formed groups around the USA to try and bring a voice of sanity to the political debate. Yet, these people (Ordinary American Citizens) are called Terrorists by Vice President Biden and today are told they are going to be "Taken Out" by the President of the Teamsters Union. Based on the history of the Teamsters and its former President Jimmy Hoffa those are pretty ironic and powerful words to be used in the opening remarks introducing the President of the United States. So if you are someone who openly wants America to stop spending money we don't have you are viewed unfavorably by 42% of the public. Amazing and sad.
Since President Obama seems perfectly at ease with these kinds of discussions when they are in support of him and his policies you might be asking yourself where will this all stop? How far will it go? Ron Miller wrote an essay entitled "Another Civil War?" asking the very same question. His blog post puts in sharp focus issues and questions that are critical to the very future of this nation.
We are being threatened with bodily harm by the Unions! The President of the U. S. seems to condone it?!?
That is why they want to take our guns and amunition away!! I need my weapons to protect myself and my family and friends!
When I was a youngster, I remember the violence of the Unions when the Steel Mills went on strike in Pennsylvania. I was out on a drive with a girl friend and made a wrong turn into the Main Entrance of a Steel Mill near McKeesport. (Whoops!)
They attacked my car and nearly turned it over. My next door neihbor and a few others that knew me saved me! I will never forget that incident!
I think that the possibility of violence does exist, and I feel threatened by it. Civil Unrest does not surprise me.
