Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa maintained Tuesday that union workers are at "war" with Tea Party-affiliated politicians, but insisted he wasn't inciting violence.He indeed was inciting violence. Everyone with a functioning brain knows this. The White House won't even disavow it.
Hoffa stood by remarks he made over the weekend at a Labor Day rally in Detroit at which he called for workers to “take these son-of-a-bitches out” in 2012.
"I will never apologize for standing up for my fellow Teamsters and all American workers," Hoffa said in a press release Tuesday.
Hoffa also accused what he called "anti-worker media," including Fox News Channel and the website Drudge Report, of editing the clip of his speech to make it appear he was "inciting violence against members of Tea Party organizations."

Junior Hoffa Goes Full Media Matters, Blames His Call for Violence as Being Misinterpreted as Call for Violence by Evil Fox News and Drudge
Because what you saw yesterday was not a call to violence, it was just reminding his goons they're in a war or something. OK, thanks for clearing that up. I nominate this guy right now to keynote the Democratic Convention next year.
