AND EVEN HOSTILE commentators call it a gaffe. I beg to differ. This is not an accidental or freudian statement of true feelings against interest. This is deliberate and calculated incitement to violence. And I, for one, do not believe it will not be answered as though a call to action. There will be blood, and it will be on Hoffa’s hands.
But I want to remind everyone within the sound of my voice of something: this is not atypical behavior for unions or union leaders, sympathizers, or organizers. The very nature of a union is coercive and un-American. So when true American patriots challenge the unions’ corruption, of course they’re going to respond in the way that is bred into their DNA — violence and threats of violence.
This is why you should never trust unions or unionists, and you should never trust politicians who rely on unions for storm troops.
