Well, at least now they aren’t even pretending. The extremist left is putting on a show in D.C. and it’s sponsored by every one of their wealthy, over-funded, corrupt special interest groups: Big-labor (SEIU, UAW, et al), TIDES (George Soros), and a collection of socialist and communist organizations.
Rally organizers are starting to compare this rally to Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” event back in August. Benjamin Jealous, President of the NAACP, said, “Were confident any satellite photos of our rally will stack up nicely to Beck’s”. Considering that they are paying for bus tickets, food, and in some cases forcing union members to go – this is every bit a rent-a-crowd as could exist.
The idea that this rally is nothing but an attempt for Big-Labor to take back its stranglehold on American workers is not new. Beck has mentioned it, I just embedded the video from Breitbart and oh so many others have made this point. What no one’s talked about is the difference in where the money came from.
Were there huge Bank of America signs at Restoring Honor? Did the rally organizer (Beck) pay for bus rides and meals to fill the mall? No you say? Of course not, because he didn’t need to.
This far-left, Union-a-palooza is a sham. It’s heavily-funded by the special interest groups that have had Democrats doing their bidding for decades. Unfortunately for them, real leaders like Governor Chris Christie (NJ), are showing the unions for what they are – thieves. Now big-labor has to fight back the only way they know how – propaganda.
Unions have outlived their usefulness and have pissed-away the trust that their membership put in them. They are one of the largest reasons for the loss of American manufacturing jobs.
With union labor costs about double those of non-union Japanese and other foreign auto manufacturing plants in the United States, Big Three American automakers are financially bleeding to death. This outcome was inherent in the origin of industrial unions in the violence of revolutionary socialism.
Last year, when Obama took over the largest car maker in America, it wasn’t just to “save” the jobs, he knew he needed to save the UAW. I would argue that it was his sole goal, GM was just a necessary evil. Consider how the company ownership was divied-up. True investors, bond holders, were systematically dismantled and 17.5% of the company was given to the UAW. Even worse, 65% of Chrysler was given to the union.
Unions are weakening America’s ability to compete in the global market. They are also a larger political force than any bank, wall street investment house or CEO. Organized labor (a synonym with organize crime) controls the Democrat party and is running both the Democrats and American manufacturing into the ground.
This rally is just a last attempt at re-energizing their unthinking base. People who believe that making ludicrous salaries for simple work need the unions to keep-up the thuggery on American companies. The thugs need those useful idiots to keep thinking they deserve those salaries and benefits.”]Saturday will be a self-love fest. Me, me, me. What can the government give me? What can I get out of the public treasury? That’s the union, socialist, and communist position – ME.
When you see them all on T.V., waving their signs and performing their paid duty as for-hire attendees, just look for what they are asking for. Is it to return to self-reliance? To find out what more they could do to help the country? To understand that we must make personal sacrifices if we don’t want to end up like Greece and Portugal?
No, you won’t hear any of that. You’ll hear them being told how to get what they think they deserve. You’ll hear about the evil free market and how our economic system has done them wrong and must be reformed. You’ll hear a whole bunch of unknowns (and Al Sharpton) tell them that they can get what they want by simply demanding it.
They will be told that they can get what they want by having the government take it from all those people that go to Tea Parties.
It won’t be said that plainly, but if you listen, closely – you’ll hear it.
