Dem Congressman: Hey, Sorry for Inciting My Thug Union Supporters to Violence

A little too late now considering the thugs haven't clearly gotten the message and are already beating up on women. Maybe these thugs should think twice before the speak. Then again, he's a Democrat so the national media won't bother to make any mention of this.
U.S. Rep. Michael Capuano expressed regret Wednesday for his choice of words at a Tuesday rally to support Wisconsin workers, after national and local Republicans pounced on him for “over-the-top and inflammatory rhetoric.”

“Congressman Mike Capuano must have lost the memo from President Obama and Democratic leaders who were demanding more civility in our political discourse and a toning down of incendiary rhetoric after the massacre in Tucson on January 8,” the Massachusetts Republican Party wrote in a Wednesday statement. “Yesterday, at a rally on Beacon Hill, Capuano couldn’t resist the urge to stir up a crowd of union members with a call for blood in the pursuit and protection of their political agenda.”

During the Tuesday rally – a gathering of more than 1,000 union supporters protesting a proposal by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker to diminish the collective bargaining rights of public sector workers in that state – Capuano, speaking in front of the State House, fired up the crowd by saying, “I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an email to get you going. Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary.”

After Republicans took aim at his rhetoric, Capuano issued a statement expressing regret for his language, although at the time it drew wild applause and cheers from the throngs of union supporters.

“I strongly believe in standing up for worker rights and my passion for preserving those rights may have gotten the best of me yesterday in an unscripted speech,” he said in a statement. “I wish I had used different language to express my passion and I regret my choice of words.”

Capuano also referred to a vastly outnumbered throng of Tea Party counter-protesters as “a couple of nuts in the background who want to take it all away from you,” waving his hand dismissively in their direction. Throughout the three-hour rally, rank-and-file union members traded heated barbs with the Tea Party backers. Some clashes nearly escalated into violence and resulted in police intervention. In one case, a pro-union rallier spit in the face of one of the counter-protesters, who set up camp near the rally.
Just imagine how civil they'd be if they actually took the president's empty words to heart.
Capuano’s comments quickly drew contrasts with the call for a more civil tone in national political rhetoric by President Barack Obama and politicians across the country after a mass shooting in Tucson that injured Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Capuano was reportedly among those who agreed with Obama’s call, telling the Boston Globe in January, “Everybody knows the last couple of years there’s been an intentional increase in the degree of heat in political discourse ... If nothing else good comes out of this, I’m hoping it causes people to reconsider how they deal with things.’’
As they continue to lose support with the public, the violent, angry rhetoric from the Democrats will only increase. Desperation will do that.

This is who they are.

Ah, he just hit the phone.  Let's hold our fire until one of the pieces of sh*t does something even Katie Couric will have to report.  That will be the end game for sure.

And I now know not one person who is still defending unions. All the left-leaners and lefties with whom I am forced to associate now admit that these animals must be stopped and their organizations destroyed.

The Communication Workers of America (CWA) are a bunch of nasty, hate-mongering, bullies.

I know this first hand. I had the displeasure of belonging to the CWA in NJ back when they actually represented communication workers. (I had to join since NJ back in the 1980's wasn't a "right to work" State.)

When the Bell breakup came on 1/1/1984 the CWA abandoned its communication workers because they knew AT&T and the regional Telephone companies were going to shed workers BIG TIME.....Lots of lost union dues BAD!

So they began to organize the State workers. They knew the State workers were pretty safe from lay-offs and the cash flow from their union dues would fill the corrupt coffers of the CWA.

Look at ex-Gov. Corzine's slut girfriend. She was the biggy in the CWA and went to bed with the govenor, LITTERALY to enhance the CWA's membership roles and gain favors in bargening.

Thanks CWA local 1034, after 20+ years with a company I and many others were layed off because the CWA sold us down the river!

Check out the eyes on the shit-stain with the goatee. He's on something for sure. Looks like he's zonked out oh Opiates. This old fucker is lucky he didn't hit someone that could hit back.

Well well - now Americans can see what the unions are really all about now that they're out of the closet. Ugly - aren't they.
