What a political climate this nation has to deal with now. It’s as if everyone who ever read the Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, decided to all jump out of the woodwork and lose their collective minds. To quote Jimmy Hoffa, and what a legacy that one has, as he screamed out to the union audience with Barack Obama hovering off the stage:
“President Obama, this is your army, we are ready to march,” Hoffa said. “But 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.” Source
No one in the Democrat Party, let alone Barack Obama, is willing to offer an apology for this kind of rhetoric, although they are quick to harp on imagined sleights by conservatives in a heartbeat. Not Jimmy Hoffa, Barack Obama, Jay Carney, or Debbie Wasserman Schultz saw anything wrong with Hoffa’s statement. But when Sarah Palin put a crosshairs on candidates to beat, you’d have thought she’d committed mass murder rather than employing a technique the Democrats were only too fond of using.
I realize the political seasons are hotly contested, and the rhetoric flies by so fast one could suffer from whiplash trying to keep up. I also realize that my hope they would all just knock it off is a pipe dream. But really people, didn’t your parents ever teach you any manners? Is this what the nanny state produces? People who can’t take responsibility, look truth right in the face and call it a lie, and demand everything be given to them…just because they want it.
What happened to that American Spirit that stirred in the heart of hard-working American’s? Where we wanted to work for what we received? Where a dream was conceived and we went after it with everything in us? Where an obstacle was seen, assessed, and simply pushed out of the way? What happen to being united as a people in the cause of the American Dream, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, even that light unto the world?
And when did it become worth “taking the son-of-a-bitches out” when all we’ve done is stand for the U.S. Constitution, the American values and principles that made us great, demanded fiscal responsibility, and for Main Street America to be revitalized? What did we do wrong when we told the government to get back to its constitutional cage and leave us to work, start businesses, and grow the economy the way we’ve always done, by working hard.
So here’s my response to Jimmy Hoffa. Unions may have, at one time, been good. But you’ve served your purpose and have become nothing but thug factories bent on destroying the conservatives in this nation who wish only to make her great again. So why don’t you take those glasses off, look around at America, and realize you’re part of the problem. Why don’t you take Saul Alinsky’s book and use it to start a fire, because that’s all it’s good for, burning.
