Violent Leader Coming to Milwaukee; Is Ed Flynn Ready?

Richard Trumka, biggest dog of the AFL-CIO, will show up in Milwaukee with Obama (but not Feingold) this weekend.

Eddie Flynn's boyzzz should take note and bodysearch Trumka and his escorts. Trumka has a sordid history of violence (including murder) in his resume. Of course, HE never, personally, actually, did that sort of stuff. Nor did Bart Simpson.

...A nonunion contractor who operated heavy equipment, York was shot to death during a strike called by the United Mine Workers 17 years ago. Workmates who tried to come to his rescue were beaten in an ensuing melee. The head of the UMW spearheading the wave of strikes at that time? Richard Trumka. Responding to concerns about violence, he shrugged to the Virginian-Pilot in September 1993: “I’m saying if you strike a match and you put your finger in it, you’re likely to get burned.” [Or in this case, killed.]

...In Illinois, Trumka told UMW members to “kick the s**t out of every last” worker who crossed his picket lines, according to the Nashville (Ill.) News. And as the National Right to Work Foundation (pdf), the leading anti-forced unionism organization in the country, pointed out, other UMW coalfield strikes resulted in what one judge determined were “violent activities … organized, orchestrated and encouraged by the leadership of this union.”

Another Chicago-Moves-North warning. We get the Alinskyboy, and the maim-and-killboy to go along with the cemeteryvote-boy, Barrett.

No wonder actual Wisconsinites call them "FIBs".

Well, as long as no non-union type shows up to exercise his free speech and right to demonstrate, to disagree with Unions, then the Unions won't be forced to go thug on him. After all, they are delicate flowers who must not be forced to tolerate a different opinion.

Irony at its finest. Dad29 chastises Trumka for invoking his mantra of "Buy More Ammo" to defend one's interests...while painting a one-sided picture replete with character assassination and half-truths to boot. Alinsky had NOTHING on you!
