Despite President Obama’s repeated claims to change the tone in Washington, the White House had no comment this afternoon after Teamsters Union leader James Hoffa, speaking at an event before President Obama, said of Tea Party activists that, come November, Democrats should “take these sons of ******* out.”
White House Declines To Comment On Union Leader’s Anti-Tea Party Rhetoric At Labor Day Rally - ABC News

So the man who called for a "new civility" and a "new tone" looks the other way when his supporters call for violence.

Shocker.

Liberals are the biggest bunch of two-faced lying hypocrites on the planet. This is just more proof of that.

The only way to deal with them is to refuse to stoop to their level and destroy them at the polls. Fortunately, with Oblama in charge that isn't too tough to do.

Wonder how long before our liberal Obama supporting moderators shut down this topic like they did the last on on a similar subject.

Are you all upset because you interpret his comments to mean violence towards the tea party?

Or do you see the context in what he said (making a mention of their voting right to take those SOBs out), and you're merely upset that he said the phrase "Sons of BiT*HES". Even though he was mention their voting right?

I'm honestly asking why are his comments an issue? From the full quote, it clear to me it was talking in a voting context.

I know we all love to jump down the other side throats at every chance....whats the problem here though?

Yeah, he followed up that epithet with the words about Mr. President we, your army, are ready to march when you give the word. Of course, he was talking about winning an election.

In the context of the history of organized crime (mafia) and labor unions as well as labor union's recent and past history of violence, I choose to take his words seriously. By the way, where is Jimmy Hoffa?

He made no calls for violence, that is the handiwork of rightwing propagandists, always waiting to twist peoples comments and shriek "Look, they do it too!", when, of course, progressives and other thinking Americans who oppose the Tea Party fanatics do no such thing.
