    Re: Hoffa Threatens GOP At Obama Event: "Take These Son Of Bitches Out"

    i saw the clip. even out of context, it's obvious that he's talking about voting.

    as for the "war on workers," it's going to be more difficult to solve that than just voting out republicans. making the situation harder for workers has been a truly bipartisan undertaking.

    i do find it less than surprising that fox doctored the quote.

    it's nice to see that liberals/leftists have decided to toss away the nonsense outrage about violent rhetoric... they should have know it was false outrage the last time this sort of stuff came up

    There was very little "outrage" last time this came up.. that is until one of your own started a shooting spree targeting the political opposition...

    but regardless of that... the "left" did not have to manipulate comments or take them out of context like what Fox News and you lot have done here.

    Right-wing bloggers misled by dishonest Fox News video editing are attacking Teamsters President James Hoffa, Jr. for supposedly urging violence against Tea Party activists during a Labor Day speech. Conservatives are also attacking President Obama, who appeared at the event, for "sanctioning violence against fellow Americans" by failing to denounce Hoffa. But fuller context included in other Fox segments makes clear that Hoffa wasn't calling for violence but was actually urging the crowd to vote out Republican members of Congress.

    During the segment that the bloggers have latched onto, Fox edited out the bolded portion of Hoffa's comments:


    HOFFA: Everybody here's got to vote. If we go back and keep the eye on the prize,let's take these son of a bitches out and give America back to America where we belong! Thank you very much!
    In an initial report on Hoffa's speech at 1 p.m. on Fox News, Ed Henry reported that Hoffa said that "we'll remember in November who's with the working people" and "said of the Tea Party and of Republicans, 'let's take these sons of bitches out.'"

    So what's your contention? Hoffa On Tea Party: 'Take These Son-of-a-Bitches Out' | FoxNews.com

    Here, right from the Fox website. So are you saying they report two different things?

    Don't worry about Pete, no one takes his comments seriously.

    It is clear to anyone being honest that Hoffa was talking about voting and the electoral process.

    There is a war in this nation on workers in this nation and no less a dedicated capitalist tool than FORBES magazine has admitted it.

    http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickunga...s-is-underway/

    There is a war on the progressive reforms of the 20th century which helped build and benefit the middle class in America and it is evident in the legislate agenda in state after state pushed by fascistic groups like ALEC and the CLUB FOR GROWTH and their tea party & GOP sycophants and toadies.

    President Hoffa is merely the messenger of the truth that many do not want known because it alerts others to their unholy strategy to destroy America as we know it.

    Exactly what was quoted in the Fox article I posted. So what's the left's problem?

    Because they left out the bit where he mentioned he was talking about voting and made it sound like he was talking about actual violence. Duh.

    Oh I only need one fact... Gabrielle Gifford (D) shot while meeting constituents. That alone makes it politically motivated since she was the target.

    Now you can follow the Fox News and GOP talking points attempting to distance themselves from this man and his views and attempt to paint him as some sort of crazy man, but anyone who actually makes up his/her own opinions on subjects will clearly see that the attack was not a random shooting at a random person, but a shooting of a Democratic representative of the United States Congress by a person who had anti-government views, a view that is very much prevalent to the right wing aspect of US politics.

    But be my guest and live with your head in the ground... it can be comforting when the facts of issues are hard to bear... both sides do it...

    But back to the subject I say... if you can.

    Fox News was/is wrong in the way they portraited the comments.. yes or no?
