Kipping Violent Talk on the Left

Kipping Violent Talk on the Left

On Labor Day, Teamsters President James Hoffa Jr. was in Detroit addressing a rally starring the president. Hoffa told Obama there was a "war on workers," and the unions were Obama's "army." He said: "We are ready to march. Let's take these sons of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong." Obama then showed up and said that voters would be looking for "straight shooters." The rhetoric was just fine by him.
The same media that mercilessly attacked conservatives after the Giffords shooting couldn't ignore this, you say? True, the venue was too high profile: a union leader at an Obama rally on Labor Day. While ABC, CBS and NBC were compelled to notice, there was virtually no outrage. Indeed, The Washington Post and The New York Times skipped right over it.
