    Winning friends and influencing people, to hate your goat stinking guts. Great spokesman for a union.

  3. ralphb says:

    Wonder if Media Matters will try and spin that one?

    “You’re not on the PR staff are you?”
    Wow, what an asshole.

    Not a large vocabulary with that guy.

    please do not think all union members are as stupid as this idiot. Many just go to work, do their job and in some industries a union is needed. I know times have changed and the picture that unions are presenting right now are not good. It is up to the union members too get rid of the thugs because they are not helping the workingman;s cause.
    Watching the unions in Milwaukee this year and hearing that idiot Hoffa and seeing this moron, makes me ashamed that I ever belonged to a union.

    unemployment needs to start in DC asap

    FYCS has a nice ring to it… seems like the perfect name actually.

    We’ve been brewing a perfect storm that’s bound to destroy unions at this rate. We have people like the longshoreman, with good jobs, lots of benefits, acting like divas, like thugs, while most of us are just barely making it. The empathy, the solidarity we used to feel towards union workers is fading and being replaced by resentment. Smashing things and cutting break lines is what you do when you have 17 hour days with no overtime pay or people are being injured on the job everyday. It is not an appropriate response to most of today’s labor issues.

  9. How many members of the Tea Party are also union members? (And vice versa.)

    As Sarah said, it is (or ought to be) a similar demographic.

  10. Looks like nutpicking, as described in
    https://crayfisher.wordpress.com/2011/09/10/nutpicking/

    Except this is taking one choice nut video. The corporate media put up a distorted version of Hoffa’s GOTV, also: Tea Party is not the only side they go after unfairly.

    Crony capitalists don’t like TP — or unions.

    “nutpicking (verb)
    The practice of sifting through the comments of blogs, email threads, discussion groups and other user generated content in an attempt find choice quotes proving that the advocates for or against a particular political opinion are unreasonable, uninformed extremists.”
