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

    remember when the left wing in general and the media in particular were all aghast at the horror of the notion that someone would quote Jefferson at a Tea Party Rally, and how doesn't that mean that all conservatives are so full of anger and violence and rage?

    yeah. Expect them to sort of take this with a shrug.


    "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....

    "President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let's take these son of bitches out...
    Jimmy Hoffa, of course, will naturally be held responsible by the media the next time some nutcase shoots at or otherwise assaults a Republican / Tea Party supporter. Right? Right?


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

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

    You also have to wonder if Hoffa is smart enough to realize that he's putting Obama into a no-win situation. Either Obama can have a sista-souljah moment and condemn the rhetoric; thereby further angering his union supporters (who are already irritated at his failure to provide jobs and step in in states like Wisconsin) and making it harder for him to win in 2012..... or he can do nothing, thereby providing Republicans with perfect campaign material to demonstrate to independents the anger and violence of Obama's base.... thereby making it harder for him to win in 2012.


    Or, maybe, he (like - strangely - so many other national figures) just hasn't fully internalized yet that he lives in the telephone-camera-internet era, and that yes, all the things he says in public to supportive crowds will be available for viewing by a potentially less enthusiastic populace.

    Fox Doctors Hoffa Speech To Fabricate Call For Violence | Media Matters for America


    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.'"

    It's pretty clear what Hoffa meant by his comment:

    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!

    This thread is a good example why no one takes hyperpartisans seriously.

    Even with the first part you have in bold it still sounds like a call to violence considering who Hoffa is and what the history is of his family and movement.

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

    I watched the speech and Obama did what he always does.

    He gave his shout outs to his peeps, and his "in da house" to the senators and everybody.

    He is a low class piece of ****. Is that racist to say? I really don't care.

    He is the President Of The United States not an MC at a rap concert. Pleasantries is one thing but doing what he does at all his speeches is just low class.

    He also took a speech that was for Labor day and again started to attack the Republicans, like it was a campaign speech.

    I don't think he knows the difference anymore.

    He is supposed to be the President for everybody but he seems to be a President for the Democrats and union members, but not other workers.

    I know this thread was about Hoffa, but I think this ties into it.

    How is the weather over there on planet right wing paranoia and crazy?

    Just because you keep repeating a small snip of what he said, does not mean that you are right or that the total meaning of what he said will change ....
