The AFL-CIO’s ‘narcissistic, lazy, self-indulgent’ new boss Richard Trumka held a rally yesterday afternoon at the AFL-CIO’s posh multi-million dollar headquarters and gave his typical fiery speech about health care.
During the video (see below), Trumka aligned himself with today’s neo-socialists (aka “progressives”), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and called (again) for a “robust” public option (that slippery slope to socialized medicine in three to five years).
While that, in itself is not all that surprising given the AFL-CIO’s rush to the left since the 1995 ascendency of DSA-member John Sweeney to labor’s top spot, what is rather surprising is Trumka’s comment toward the end when he said [at 2:15]:
“Let’s go let (inaudible) hear the voices of the real American people…people who stand for real reform.”
So, let’s get this straight, Mr. Trumka, Americans aren’t what you consider “real Americans” unless they support a government take over of health care? Are these the same unreal Americans who “cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them”? [Ooops…wrong ‘progressive.’]

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES It is an incessant refrain – from Leftists and the media (please pardon the redundancy). This annoying gaggle whines and moans that the quintessential, awful faces of corporate influence over government are those of Charles and David Koch.
