Jimmy Hoffa Calls for Violence Against Tea Party: "Let's Take These Son-of-Bitches Out"

I saw the headline at Drudge today and frankly, the first thing I thought to myself was, "Jimmy Hoffa?"

"I thought he has been missing for a couple of decades (or three)."

Wrong Jimmy Hoffa, this is junior we are talking about here; the same one that is inseparably attached to Dear Leader's hip.

Jimmy Hoffa stumping for Obama this Labor Day, quoted at Real Clear Politics:

"We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They've got a war, they got a war with us and there's only going to be one winner. It's going to be the workers of Michigan, and America. We're going to win that war," Jimmy Hoffa Jr. said to a heavily union crowd.

"President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let's take these son of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong," Hoffa added.

Obama addressed the crowd shortly after Hoffa.

Do you think the incendiary violent rhetoric above is the most disturbing aspect of this story? Or, do you think that Obama's appearance and speech immediately after Hoffa's violent, incendiary speech is more disturbing? I vote for the latter. By appearing with and supporting this man -- Hoffa -- Obama puts a Presidential-stamp-of-approval on Hoffa's words.

I wonder what fair-minded Americans will think about that?

Not. One. Mention. Of. Jimmy. Hoffa's. Violent. Remarks.

Shocker.

Updated: Incestuous from the start, a little nugget from the past. Apparently in 2008 Obama pushed hard for ending federal oversight of the Teamsters.

From the WSJ, May, 2008:
Sen. Barack Obama won the endorsement of the Teamsters earlier this year after privately telling the union he supported ending the strict federal oversight imposed to root out corruption, according to officials from the union and the Obama campaign.

It's an unusual stance for a presidential candidate. Policy makers have largely treated monitoring of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters as a legal matter left to the Justice Department since an independent review board was set up in 1992 to eliminate mob influence in the union.

Sen. Obama's rival for the Democratic nomination, Sen. Hillary Clinton, has declined to take a stance on Teamsters oversight. During his eight years in office, President Bill Clinton took no action to end the special board. Democratic presidential nominees in 2000 and 2004 -- Al Gore and John Kerry -- didn't address the issue, according to Teamsters officials.
Ain't that nice. Barack Obama -- the same man that leaves no stone unturned in his quest for federal oversight over every minute aspect of our individual lives, economy, freedoms and privacy -- saw it fit to end oversight over a notorious labor group with a colorful-criminal past.

Happy Labor Day, Jimmy Hoffa.

The Tea Party says hello to your best-bud Obama, too.

Updated x2: Leslie Eastman blogged about this before me (way to go) and gets an Instalanche to boot! Leslie notes that Hoffa's speech was intended to rile up the union-thug-Detroit audience before Obama hit the stage.

Mission (not) accomplished.

  2. Like you, the "Jimmy Hoffa" made me blink a bit. Not only is he back from the dead, but he's still a thug.

  3. I just read that story a few minutes ago and my jaw is still hanging open. I know I shouldn't be surprised at Chairman Zero's tacit approval of Hoffa's violent rhetoric, but it really took me off guard.

    Obama's ouster cannot come soon enough. The thuggery must stop!

  4. Good work on this reportage, LCR.

    L.A., F.M.P., and J.M.,

    ..today's events held another real shocker: Biden added "Barbarians" to his "Terrorists" Tea Party label. Of course, this is part of that brain trust strategy that says you need to alienate people to get them to vote for you.

    For a real treat, I recommend you guys go to the posts' underlying linked news articles and read the *comments* from the proletariat. Over the last six months, they have decidedly gone against Obama. It is hard -- with the exception of the NYT echo-chamber comments -- to find any favorable remarks about that clown. Any that do appear are savaged by 2-10 (or more) vicious rebuttals.

    The natives are definitely restless, Stanley. Inflammatory remarks by Hoffa, Biden, Waters, and the off-the-reservation members of the CBC will just about push us over the edge next year.

    Hell, instead of an election, we just might have a revolution -- replete with torches, pitchforks, axes, and muskets!

    Then watch out, ladies and Gentlemen, it will be at that point that the War Planner becomes a Libertarian! (And then you *know* we're in trouble.)

  5. Like father, like son I say. This fool just threaten the working class. Who does he think pays the exhibit taxes that the one imposes and who are the one getting screwed by the public labor unions? Jimmy thinks all workers are unionized, when most of us who work for a living in the private sector know what working for a union means: layoffs. Unless you're one of the few that keep their jobs of which the benefits are great, just that there aren't many around.

    I can only imagine what the press would had done if a Republican president made a speech after the NRA had made such a statement. We may as well face it folks, the media isn't our friends. If anything, they are the traitors, the enemies from with in, that have betrayed us to the enemies of what this republic is all about and their continue protection and subjugation to this evil president is proof of that.

  6. "I can only imagine what the press would had done if a Republican president made a speech after the NRA had made such a statement."

    Madmath, this is exactly what I told my wife tonight. It would be front-page screaming headlines, 24/7 for weeks.

  7. WP -- I'll welcome you into the libertarian fold the day you arrive; albeit in a strong defense libertarian strain sort-of-way :).

  8. With the previous post in mind, how can you organize labor, when you destroy jobs? You would think Hoffa would be kicking Zero in the seat of his pants...
