Jimmy Hoffa Calls for Violence Against Tea Party: "Let's Take These Son of Bitches Out"

I saw the headline at Drudge today and frankly, the first thing I thought to myself was, "Jimmy Hoffa?" "I thought he has been 'missing' for a couple of decades -- or three?"

Wrong Jimmy Hoffa, this is junior we are talking about here; the same one inseparably attached to Obama's hip. I guess I forgot Jimmy Hoffa junior runs the Teamsters now.

Junior, stumping for Obama this Labor Day, quoted at Real Clear Politics:

"We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They've got a war, they got a war with us and there's only going to be one winner. It's going to be the workers of Michigan, and America. We're going to win that war," Jimmy Hoffa Jr. said to a heavily union crowd.

"President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let's take these son of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong," Hoffa added.

Obama addressed the crowd shortly after Hoffa.

Do you think the incendiary violent rhetoric above is the most disturbing aspect of this story? Or, do you think that Obama's appearance and speech immediately after Hoffa's violent, incendiary speech is more disturbing? I vote for the latter. By appearing with and supporting this man -- Hoffa -- Obama puts a Presidential-stamp-of-approval on Hoffa's words.

I wonder what fair-minded Americans will think about that?

: If you want a crystal-clear glimpse of just how controlled the media is here in the United States -- it gives the USSR's Pravda a run for its ideological money -- read this New York Times/AP "news story" about Obama's Labor Day speech.

Not. One. Mention. Of. Jimmy. Hoffa's. Violent. Remarks.


Updated: Incestuous from the start, a little nugget from the past. Apparently in 2008 Obama pushed hard for ending federal oversight of the Teamsters.

From the WSJ, May, 2008:
Sen. Barack Obama won the endorsement of the Teamsters earlier this year after privately telling the union he supported ending the strict federal oversight imposed to root out corruption, according to officials from the union and the Obama campaign.

It's an unusual stance for a presidential candidate. Policy makers have largely treated monitoring of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters as a legal matter left to the Justice Department since an independent review board was set up in 1992 to eliminate mob influence in the union.

Sen. Obama's rival for the Democratic nomination, Sen. Hillary Clinton, has declined to take a stance on Teamsters oversight. During his eight years in office, President Bill Clinton took no action to end the special board. Democratic presidential nominees in 2000 and 2004 -- Al Gore and John Kerry -- didn't address the issue, according to Teamsters officials.
Ain't that nice. Barack Obama -- the same man that leaves no stone unturned in his quest for federal oversight over every minute aspect of our individual lives, economy, freedoms and privacy -- saw it fit to end oversight over a notorious labor group with a colorful-criminal past.

Happy Labor Day, Jimmy Hoffa.

The Tea Party says hello to your best-bud Obama, too.

Updated x2: Leslie Eastman blogged about this before me (way to go) and gets an Instalanche to boot! Leslie notes that Hoffa's speech was intended to rile up the union-thug-Detroit audience before Obama hit the stage.

Mission (not) accomplished.


  1. "President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let's take these son of bitches out..."

    I'm soooo glad President Obama called for civility! Think how violent the rhetoric could have become if he hadn't???

  2. The mook doesn't even know how to swear properly. It should be sons of bitches". What a maroon!

  3. I thought the same thing -- it should be sons -- but I doubt that he doesn't know how to swear properly :).

  4. I think what Jimmy really meant by "take these sons of bitches out" was buying them dinner at a nice Italian joint.

  5. Mrs. C: I'd like to make you an offer you can't refuse!

  6. Are you an utterly dishonest hack lying to your readers? Or are you just a stenographer for your rightwing overlords?

    The full unedited quote:

    "HOFFA: Everybody here’s got to vote. If we go back and keep the eye on the prize, let’s take these son of a bitches out and give America back to America where we belong! Thank you very much!"

    Ya got that assclown? VOTE. Take out at the ballot box. Jeez, you people are slime.

  7. Crankipants -- A "nice" Italian joint in Hoffa's world means dining (forever) six feet under the ground.

  8. Bitter Anonymous Fool: Do the words "war", "battle", "fight" and "army" mean anything on your planet? How do those square with Obama's call for non violent rhetoric?

    You wouldn't happen to have a link to the "full, unedited quote" would you? Not sure why you liberal assclowns project so much onto conservatives? The author of this article at least had the balls and the courtesy to cite his source. You apparently have neither. Nor the courage for anything more than a drive by libel.

    But, thanks for playing!

  9. @Proof: the point is, "take them out" didn't mean "kill them", but "vote them out". So let's keep it real.

    Also using "war", "battle", etc? Really? All politicians use this kind of rhetoric, left and right (remember Palin crosshair? same stupid shit).

  10. "I'd like to make you an offer you can't refuse!"

    Fine, but you're buying me new sheets!

  11. Anonymous: Are you an utterly dishonest hack? You say, "the point is, "take them out" didn't mean "kill them", but "vote them out". So let's keep it real." No, my dimwitted friend. To "take someone out" has a very definite connotation, particularly in the context of a "battle". You have heard of "connotations" haven't you?

    You say he did not mean it literally. Duh! But your tinpot messiah called upon everyone to tone down the violent rhetoric. Something the hypocritical left has not only ignored, but has escalated.

    Newsflash: Not sure how it is on your planet, but on mine, if you want to say "vote them out of office", it is perfectly permissible to use the word "vote".

    "remember Palin crosshair? (sic)" I remember the Left hyperventilating over that for even less reason than Hoffa's remark. Hypocrite much?

  12. Mrs. C: Gosh! In the olden days, you used to be able to get by with just dinner and a movie!

  13. "Jeez, you people are slime... remember Palin crosshair? same stupid shit..."

    Ah, "Anonymous". Just out of curiosity, when Palin was being accused of inciting murder in Arizona for using far less incendiary language, (actually, no incendiary language at all) did you call the liberals "slime", then, too? Just wondering how consistent you are...or are you just a "stenographer for your leftwing overlords"?

  14. Anon is a Soros-led troll. He's repeating, verbatim, the Media Matters Soros talking points on this story:

  15. Yeah. Another leftie over on SA linked to the Media Matters (and the truth doesn't) site, and the only evidence they had of any edited was one guy's tweet.

    Breitbart posted a video of Ohlbermann condemning the violent rhetoric. It had some different footage from ABC News, but it too was edited, in a different spot. Not sure if ABC, Ohlbermann or Brieitbart made that edit.
