Teamsters President James Hoffa compares right-to-work bill to Pearl Harbor

Despite the violent threats from Democrats and the savage thuggery that took place in Lansing, Michigan on Tuesday, Teamsters President James Hoffa isn’t toning down the rhetoric; he is stoking it. Yesterday afternoon, after the violent protest, Hoffa compared Governor Snyder’s signing of the Right to Work bill to the bombing of Pearl Harbor (see the video above at 5:07).

Today, the Teamsters pumped up the rhetoric even further, promising that “the past few days of action are only the opening salvo in Michigan’s civil war.

Remember when Democrats and the media claimed to be concerned about supposedly dangerous rhetoric? Not so much anymore, evidently.

Extreme. Divisive. Like, perhaps, tearing down a tent, punching a Fox News contributor in the face and destroying a man’s hot dog stand?

Hoffa is just trying to protect his workers. It’s all about the workers.

    That’s just disrespectful to my Grandpa.

    Voters are waking up to the teamsters being corrupt and violent. LOOK AT DETROIT.. no further comment needed.

  • Jack Deth

    Can’t have stupid, inane things like legislation and laws screwing up Obama’s and the Democrats’ political campaign money laundering machine!!!


    And I thought my friend’s two year old niece was a pain in the ass when her toys were taken away. She’s got nothing on Mr. Hoffa and his organized crime cronies! Who get a tad upset when their cut, percentage or vigorish doesn’t arrive on time.

    Jimmy Jr. could discover that ‘disappearing’ is hereditary after all.

    Too bad it wasn’t Hiroshima…

    I believe Hoffa is about to pick a fight that he, and his lackeys will sorely regret.

  • Marcy Cook

    Yes he is right…. Pearl Harbor. The Unions are playing the part of the Japanese.

    Have you noticed that the liberals including Union members when they dont get their way have to resort to violence its the same way with the people from OWS and when was the last time a tea party rally ended in violence and somebody been arrested as i cant think of any.

    Another liberal-progressive puke crosses that line of moral equivalency. How do they make these leaps? Somebody needs to remind the Union Coconut Humpers that when it gets really ugly, the corporatists come for the trade unionists first. They will completely ignore anything that stands in the way of their fascist, corporate utopia.

    Where is the liberal outrage over Google’s recently revealed tax dodging? Oh, wait, nvm, my bad, sorry … back to my corner …

      Outrage over Google is in the same place the outrage over Costco circumventing tax laws to pay higher dividends by taking a $300M loan to pay them out now rather than after 12/31.

  • r_coplin2001

    How can Mr. Hoffa compare the Right To Work Bill to Pearl Harbor when it was his own union that were doing the attacking of the Right To Worker supporters and a Fox News reporter.I guess the Unions were compared to the Japanese in Mr. Hoffa mind.

  • marcellucci

    Yes, Mr. Hoffa….you have awakened a sleeping giant…..
    And it clearly sees the monster you and your thugs have become….
    Good riddance….

    Teamsters Union President is a very wealthy man. Who pays his salary? All those workers who pay dues from their hard earned paychecks. Why doesn’t he take a smaller paycheck, may e lime that of the average line worker, and reduce everyone’s dues? Hey, spread the wealth…right?

    What a drama queen.

    I hope no one really believes that this criminal is only raking in $300,000 per year.

  • MissDiane47

    Hoffa says “This is about the power of politics.” Yes, he’s absolutely right … only thing he doesn’t realize is that the people are taking away the Mafia-style union power of politics.

  • righthook38

    Comparing RTW to Pearl Harbor? Are you kidding me? What an insult to our vets.

  • BeeKaaay

    Leftwingwackos love it when veterans are killed by bloodthirsty ways. That’s why they always compare any sort of opposition to leftwingwackoism in bloodthirsty ways.
