Videos: Rush Slaps Back at “Sons of Bitches” Obama and Hoffa and Their “Army”

Ben Johnson, The White House Watch

The Left is outraged, as usual, this time over the fact that conservatives are using its own tactics against it. At a Labor Day rally in Detroit, featuring a keynote address from the president, Teamsters boss James Hoffa said, “President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march.” Hoffa rallied the troops to war against the forces of the Tea Party, saying, “Let’s take these sons of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong!”

(Story continues following video.)

Judging from Hoffa’s multiple incoherent statements, union fat cats celebrate Labor Day the way migrant farm workers celebrate Cinco de Mayo. (Hick!) But conservatives have made the most of Hoffa’s 100-proof, violent-sounding rhetoric.

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Media Matters, Alan Colmes, and others have protested that Hoffa’s full statement was: “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!”

The full “context,” they insist, proves Hoffa only encouraged voting, not violence. For once. Hoffa apparently meant to tell Obama the entire rank-and-file of the labor movement is entirely at his disposal; all of his minions will vote as they are told, “volunteer” for Democratic campaigns (or else!), and mindlessly carry out the president’s wishes. It was not a call to violence; it was a pledge of perpetual slavery.

Conservatives are rightly jittery when union leaders begin speaking in military cadences. Unlike Tea Party members, unions have a long and well-established history of violence from their inception forward. The blood-soaked history of the the labor movement — with offenders on both sides — stretches from the eight policemen killed in the 1886 Haymarket riot, to the beating of black Tea Party member Kenneth Gladney and other activists, to the shooting of “scab” electrical contractor John King outside Toledo last month. AFL-CIO President Rich Trumka has a disturbing history of matching violent rhetoric to physical force.

Hoffa’s liberal defenders are correct that his full sentence is defensible as spoken. They hypocritically ignore labor unions’ long history of battering their competitors while insisting the most hum-drum political statements of their enemies will touch off a civil war. They also ignore the fact that the full sentence makes Hoffa sound even more soused.

The same day the Teamsters threatened to “take out” an entire political, cultural, and intellectual movement, Joe Biden told an AFL-CIO rally, “You are the only folks keeping the barbarians from the gates.”

Asked about Hoffa’s tone, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney refused to say whether the president found the comment appropriate. Carney sounded a familiar note, asking, “Can we move on?” In 2008, Milquetoast McCain threw talk show host Bill Cunningham under the bus when Cunningham referred to the Democratic nominee as “Barack Hussein Obama” — a move that drew the swift approbation of the Obama campaign. Apparently the use of the man’s Christian birth name is a greater offense than another three-word phrase applied to one-quarter of the American people.

For his part, Hoffa was not so retiring. He told the Talking Points Memo website he would say it all over again, “because I believe it.” Hoffa thundered that, like a rape victim or an uppity nigra who done got hisself lynched, the Tea Party brought it on itself. “We didn’t declare war on them; they declared war on us,” he lied. “We’re fighting back. The question is, who started the war?” (For more on this question, see Susan Stamper Brown’s article, “It’s Not an ‘Assault on Unions.’ It’s Retaliation.”)

On his radio program Tuesday, Rush Limbaugh noted that….

      235 years ago the people of this great country had been pushed far enough and stood up and fought back and that time again may be closer at hand than a lot of people think. I believe there are 150 million gun owners in this country and I dont believe that the those in power who think they can take away the rights guaranteed by our Constitution. Although peaceful means and using the power of our vote is the preferred way of protecting our country and our Constitution those that stand against this great Country need to know that we will only be pushed so far and then we push back and we push back hard. God Bless America and God Bless our Constitution,and all that they both stand for.

  3. Do not let Obama destroy our Country anymore. Impeach Obama now!!!

  4. Stephen Fowler says:

    All of the establishment players are on their way out the door. The establishment gop is as bad as the democrat clowns. The people are starting to see the light, which spells extinction for both parties. They will remain on the stage, but in a much diminished capacity.

  5. I am all for impeaching the son of a biotch but we are going to have to replace most of the senate first in order to get it done, I think civil disobedience is in order in the mean time, use your imagination. Be brave.

  6. Arthur R. Vinson says:

    If restoring our Constitution is a on slot then so be it. Biden has been trying to destroy our 2nd Amendment rights for years. He needs to go along with Obama and a lot of other Unconstitutional Congress people both Republicans and Democrats.

  7. Hoffa better keep his mouth shut or he will end up like theold man.

  8. We sobs will take out hoffa and his gang of thugs.
