Straight from The Hill.
Rep. Michael Capuano (D-Mass.) fired up [“community organized”] a group of union members in Boston with a speech urging them to work down in the trenches to fend off limits to workers’ rights like those proposed in Wisconsin.
“I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an email to get you going,” Capuano said, according to the Statehouse News. “Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary.”
Take this tactic as a preview of things to come. The Democratic party is under considerable influence from the radical left. The true agenda of the Pelosi/Reid/Obama faction is farther to the left than anything the general American electorate will accept. That leaves only two ways to get the legislation they want; lie about the intent and content of legislative bills, or fix the elections. They will do both.
If Barack Obama had said, “The health care bill is a form of reparations because white people will pay most of the fees and black people will be the greatest beneficiaries”, would the bill have passed? If Obama had repeated the statement he made to union members that “‘single payer is the goal” but it will need to be done one step at a time, would the bill have passed? If he had told the truth, the bill would not have passed.
To the best of our knowledge, Al Gore led an honest campaign. But if Gore had the SEIU/ACORN team working the poles, getting down dirty and bloody as the Democrat from Massachusetts encourages union members to do, there is little doubt but that the close election would have been swung over to Mr. Global Warming.
If the Democrats want to bloody my nose, I’ll take the blow. I won’t start the fight, but I will fight back. But first I’ll vote. It is a Democracy, and Ben, thus far at least , we have been able to keep it.
