Democrat urges unions to ‘get a little bloody when necessary’

Sometimes it’s necessary to get out on the streets and “get a little bloody,” a Massachusetts Democrat said Tuesday in reference to labor battles in Wisconsin.

Rep. Michael Capuano (D-Mass.) fired up a group of union members in Boston with a speech urging them to work down in the trenches to fend off limits to workers’ rights like those proposed in Wisconsin.
“I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an email to get you going,” Capuano said, according to the Dorchester Reporter. “Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary.”
Political observers have been the lookout for potentially incendiary rhetoric in the wake of January’s shooting in Tucson, Ariz., where Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D) survived an assassination attempt, six were killed, and 13 others were injured.
Political rhetoric has become especially heated in Madison, Wis., where Republican Gov. Scott Walker has proposed major labor reforms that sparked more than a week’s worth of rowdy protests at the state capitol.
“We take security seriously, whether it’s for me, the lieutenant governor and all 132 members of the state legislature, Democrats or Republicans alike, because there’s a lot of passion down here,” Walker said Tuesday on MSNBC about his safety in Wisconsin. “And particularly when we see people coming in being bussed in from other states, that’s what worries us.”
Capuano made his remarks before a crowd of union members in Boston, along with other members of the state’s congressional delegation. Massachusetts has an influential union population that could loom large over the 2012 Senate race. Capuano is considering getting in that race to challenge Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) next fall.
“This is going to be a struggle at least for the next two years. Let’s be serious about this. They’re not going to back down and we’re not going to back down. This is a struggle for the hearts and minds of America,” Capuano told union members.
So these union punks want bloodshed, I say lets give them what they want, only it will be THEIR BLOOD. If they want to throw down the gauntlet, we will pick it up and beat them senseless with it. We’ve had enough of these union bastards, it’s time to end this once and for all, it’s time shut these unions up and shut them down…PERMANENTLY
Is this what the unions have in mind for us?

  1. In Lefty Land, where the Obama Unicorn flies overhead and sprinkles the Fairy Dust of Change –
    When the people assemble and unite to make their wishes known to their employer, this is a glorious thing – it’s a “right” and “democracy at work.”
    When the people assemble and unite to make their wishes known to the Federal Government, they are vilified, disparaged, and dismissed as violent, racist extremists.

  2. Productive Americans still have the upper hand over the mooch, leech and tick government goonions.
    It’s called a tax revolt. 😀

  3. Ah, how quickly they forget the “violent rhetoric” that was so blamed for Giffords’ shooting.
    I’ll be at a counter protest on Saturday. I will not get violent or “bloody” unless I am forced to defend my physical being. We are planning to be very civil demonstrators.

  4. In my opinion, unions are predatory organizations that, in large part, victimize their own members.
    I was a non-union worker in the construction industry for many years. Our union members were in a weather-sensitive trade that worked their maximum hours in the summer. They made excellent wages and benefits – roughly $40-$47 per hour with good overtime in the summer.
    Yet, they compared their compensation to other trades and went on a 10-week strike in early June. The union had told them they’d get $72 a day strike pay for picketing and were eligible for state unemployment!
    When the strike was settled, I was asked to fax their appeals to state Employment Security to forgive paying back all the money they’d fraudulently received. One of the guys told me that in all those weeks of picketing, he’d received two days of strike pay from the union.
    The local union bigshot got promoted the the International level. The workers never recovered the thousands of dollars they lost in wages and suffered through months and months of rainy weather when they could not work until the following summer.

  5. Oh, you mean like those “1010” enviro-crazy adds with people who didn’t want to go along getting blown up… no pressure!
