AFL-CIO head thug Dick Trumka is worried about THAT WOMAN’s ‘poisonous‘ rhetoric. The thug feels that a June speech in which she referred to ‘union thugs’ hit a little too close to home is an incitement to violence:
“And down in Tyler, Texas, she’s talking about — and I quote — ‘union thugs.’ What? Her husband’s a union man. Is she calling him a thug? Sarah Palin ought to know what union men and women are,” Trumka will say. “That’s poisonous. There’s history behind that rhetoric. That’s how bosses and politicians in decades past justified the terrorizing of workers, the murdering of organizers.”
Eddie York could not be reached for comment.
PS: Mark Hemingway notes that THAT WOMAN was careful to distinguish between the thugs currently running our major unions and ordinary, decent union men and women when she referred to ‘union thugs.’ Which you knew already; Trumka isn’t used to being accurately described in public like this, and it shows.
PPS: THAT WOMAN is, of course, happy to remind the voting public of some of Trumka’s more notable acts of union thuggery.
