No Shame

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4lZbxhjVXMo]
Via Gateway Pundit: The International Association of Firefighters is using tasteless images from the Oklahoma City Bombing to fight a state bill which changes how public safety labor unions and cities handle contract disputes.
It asks residents to oppose Senate Bill 826, which changes how public safety labor unions and cities handle contract disputes. Several images of firefighters are used in the commercial, including a short clip of the remnants of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building after it was bombed April 19, 1995.
When the image of the bombed Murrah Building is shown in the commercial, a narrator says: “We’re there when you need us. Now we need you. Tell politicians to do what’s right: Oppose SB 826 and support Oklahoma’s firefighters.”
Sen. David Holt, R-Oklahoma City, wants the union television advertisement taken off the air. “The AFL-CIO and the IAFF should be ashamed of this horrific and tasteless commercial,” said Sen. David Holt, R-Oklahoma City. “The victims and heroes of April 19th are not political pawns to be exploited whenever the Legislature seeks to reform a union negotiating process.
Shameful, using the images of a national tragedy to oppose a bill they don’t like.
