    He was responding to someone that claimed that they had never heard anything hateful or racist from a tea party member. No unbiased person would say that Deuce was trying to say that all tea partiers are like the people he showed. Next time think about something rationally before jumping to your conclusions based on your silly "us vs. them" mentality.

    All that drama for nothing.
    you know.... that's a very apt summation of the modern union movement.

    Ain't that funny. Liberals bash Sarah Palin and many conservatives take that to mean that they must be really scared of how smart she is and how many followers she has etc. and then when conservatives bash unions non-stop for months it must mean that unions have no support and are really just by standers.

    Pick a side conservatives, lol.

    Then there's this fun fellow:

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

    what about the right wing rhetoric, or do you conservatives really forget that easily?

    "I want people in Minnesota armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax because we need to fight back." - Michelle Bachmann.

    if i'm not mistaken, Bachmanns rhetoric is a lot more agressive than the one Hoffa used.

    "oh, wait, no. not right. Because being a liberal means never being held responsible for your rhetoric."

    cpwill, i'll just blame the radicalized right wing nuts next time there's a shooting.

    This whole thread is a distortion. Someone said something regrettable and undefensible, but because he represents a Union, the Right gets their panties in a wad. The very same type of rhetoric from Sarah Palin ("lock and load") was brushed off as nothing.

    Meanwhile the Left goes into contortions trying to defend something that shouldn't be defended.

    The man said something he shouldn't have said. The idea that this reflects everybody who isn't a Republican is complete lunacy. The idea that what he said needs to be defended is complete lunacy. Hoffa is an unsavory character, so are the Kochs. Big deal, welcome to American politics.

    precisely. i just find it ironic how the right can freely do as they please, and say whatever they want, but as soon as the left does, it's harshly criticized as an attempt to attack the tea party. do you really hear what your party has to say, and the incompetent undermining tone they speak to the american people? the true, working class american people?

    keep voting for the nuts that hold america against it's will.

Do you have a problem with American citizens voting? Are you afraid that Hoffa might be able to mobilize the American middle class and poor to become activitely involved in voicing thier opinion and voting
    lets see so if a conservative or tea party member stands up and calls liberals SOB,s that need to be taken out . you will be just as understanding that they are just voicing their opinion, their views of where this country needs to go correct ?

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

    I heard the portion of Hoffa's speech which includes the comments on voting accordingly to remove Tea Party members from Congress. Immediately, I knew there would be blow-back because of the "...let's take those SOBs out" verbage.

    While I don't see Hoff's words in the same category as Sarah Palin's bulls-eyes on liberal congressional districts or what have you, I do understand that his words could easily be viewed as inflammatory. Still...

    Content and context means everything, folks. The media has a responsibility to report the news accurately. Purposeful editing to inflame or stir up anxiety to me is irresponsible journalism and discredits the media source. This isn't the first time FoxNews has discreditted itself in this manner. Regardless, James Hoffa, Jr could have choosen his words alittle more carefully. That said, I don't think the President nor the DNC has a responsibility to publically reprimand their guess speaker. Not only did he not say or do anything wrong, he's not a member of Congress nor the Obama Administration. He's a citizen and free to exercise his 1st Amendment rights as long his words don't incite one to violence. To that, I think when people read or hear the exact contents of his words they'll put them in their proper context.
