Guy Benson, Townhall’s Political Editor, remarks on Jim Hoffa’s Threats over the passage of a Right to Work Bill in Michigan yesterday.
Yes, this is the same elegant creature who screeched about “taking out” Tea Party “son-of-a-bitches” [sic] at a presidential event last year. In case you’d forgotten, both the White House and the DNC conspicuously declined to repudiate his vituperation at the time. Now Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. has taken his anger mismanagement show to CNN, seething about an incipient “civil war” in Michigan:
Don’t bother calling; the civility police are off duty these days. Let’s address each of Hoffa’s points: (1) The “war” statement doesn’t sound like a lamentation; it sounds like a threat. Hoffa sounds almost giddy about the division and acrimony, like he’s thirsty for more. Based on yesterday’s displays of organized labor’s appallingthuggery, people would be wise to take him at his word.
