You could say that they are one now. At least, there's no denying they're breaking bread and sipping from the same can of alphabet soup these days under the banner of so-called "solidarity."
Over the weekend, thousands of union workers crowded in Chicago's Daley Plaza to show their solidarity(!) with their union comrades in Wisconsin.
According to the Chicago Sun Times:
Laborers, carpenters, electricians, machinists, sheet metal workers, police officers, firefighters, teachers, actors, writers and pharmacists from Illinois and surrounding states marched from corners of the Loop, waving pro-union banners and chanting “We are one.”
What? No mention of the Communists there to rally with their union brothers?
As the RebelPundit observed:
We have noticed an alarming message, prevalent at every single left wing protest we have attended this year in Chicago and the Midwest. While each protest has an official message of a seemingly less alarming cause, such as; Anti-War, Anti-Deportation or “We Are One” with “Union Solidarity”, there is also an extremely disturbing trend of blatant and obvious promotion of a revolutionary transformation of America into a new socialist or communist type of economic system.
What was even more disturbing to us, was the amount of young children brought to the protest with their parents, holding signs which prominently advocate for a new alternative economic system in America, and being taught what we believe is a very “un-American” message, by the reoccurring theme these Chicago protests contain. Communist protesters at this rally even claim they are very patriotic for their advocacy to end capitalism in America.
Disturbing? Yes. However, apparently today's trade-union members have no problem aligning themselves with Communists and their Marxist agenda. After all, they are all one now.
