Civility and Death Threats

March 18, 2011

In President Obama’s Memorial/Pep Rally in Tucson, he called for a new civility in political discourse:

“The loss of these wonderful people should make every one of us strive to be better in our private lives – to be better friends and neighbors, co-workers and parents. And if, as has been discussed in recent days, their deaths help usher in more civility in our public discourse, let’s remember that it is not because a simple lack of civility caused this tragedy, but rather because only a more civil and honest public discourse can help us face up to our challenges as a nation, in a way that would make them proud.”

Emphasis mine. So one may wonder when our peace-loving, pacifist POTUS may be expected to denounce this (from NRO):

Death Threats by the Dozen in Wisconsin
The rhetoric of the pro-union Left gets disturbingly violent.

F**K YOU A**H**E, I AM FORMALLY REQUESTING TO SEE THE 30,000 EMAILS YOU HAVE GOTTEN MAKING YOU COMPLY WITH THE OPEN RECORDS LAW. I ASSURE YOU THAT NONE OF THEM ARE IN SUPPORT OF YOU OR ANYTHING THAT YOU OR YOUR STAFF STAND FOR. YOUR STAFF MEMBERS HAVE NOW BEEN ADDED TO THE HIT LIST AS WELL AS THOSE OF THE OTHER SENATE MEMBERS WE HAVE THREATENED. PLEASE ADVISE THEM OF THE IMPENDING DANGER LEADING TO THIER DEATHS.

Solid

Such nice folks. The reason Mr Hope&Change will not address this ugliness is simple enough.

“Civility” in lib-speak means submit to our dogma so we can all get along – or die.” Indeed, Obama’s State of the Union speech may be summed up as, “The voters have spoken, and their message is clear – they want an end to partisanship. So let’s all cooperate on my agenda.” Which leads us to another installment on the great minds of the President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board:

Richard Trumka: President of AFL-CIO, representing some 11 million union workers. Ostensibly, Mr Thug is there to represent the “American worker”. The stinging irony of this notion should be obvious: As of 2009, there are 154,731,000 in the civilian workforce.  Of this population, 11.1 million are out of work. (Minimum estimate – the actual number is much higher) In other words, Mr Trumpka represents about 7% of American workers, and there are far more unemployed Americans than union workers. Trumpka represents his own interests and the entitlements of his unions. That is all.

Anna Burger: Former Secretary-Treasurer of Service Employees International Union (SEIU). Now she is the Chair of the Change to Win Federation – a coalition of American labor unions originally formed in 2005 as an alternative to the AFL-CIO. The coalition currently consists of four member unions: The International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT); Service Employees International Union (SEIU); United Farm Workers (UFW); and United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW). See Trumpka above. Another narrow special interest with no interest in the economy aside from directing as much of it as possible into her organization.

With Greenspan

Roger W. Ferguson, Jr: President and Chief Executive Officer of TIAA-CREF (Teachers Insurance and Annuities Association), the leading provider of retirement services in the academic, research, medical and cultural fields and a Fortune 100 financial services organization with more than $402 billion in combined assets under management. Mr Ferguson sells insurance to teachers and other unions. He’s an old Harvard buddy of Obama, and a huge fundraiser for his election. More payola. David Swenson, highlighted previously, is also on the TIAA board.

In total, unions represent 12% of the workforce, yet in Hope&Change World, they represent all American workers.  Stand behind Walker and legislators with the guts and integrity to stand up to these thugs.
