There was a time in this country when labor unions were important and patriotic. Up until the 1980s, certain unions were relatively conservative, like The Teamsters who endorsed GOP presidential candidates and labor leader George Meany who could not endorse leftist Democrat George McGovern in 1972.
But that has changed and even though much of labour’s rank and file support the president, union leaders have gone full authoritarian socialist and now support domestic terrorists Black Lives Matter.
UNION THREATS: Ahead of Labor Day, unions representing millions across several working-class sectors are threatening work stoppages in support of the BLM movement. https://t.co/Fp63ZBJiIg

‘The status quo — of police killing black people, of armed white nationalists killing demonstrators, of millions sick and increasingly desperate — is clearly unjust, and it cannot continue,” says a statement from numerous branches of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, the Service Employees International Union, and affiliates of the National Education Association. These are unions that are hurtful to the nation and their drooling prole leaders are much of the reason American workers lag behind Chinese workers in efficiency and work ethic. In the case of the NEA, unions are the main reason our schools are a PC shambles.
AFSCME, a blight on the Earth in so many ways, is a literal threat to functioning government at several levels and should be outlawed in noble homage to the brave and common sense actions of our best president, Calvin Coolidge, when he broke the Boston Police strike of 1919.
More slack-jawed labor goon claptrap, “They remind us that when we strike to withhold our labor, we have the power to bring an unjust status quo to a grinding halt,” the union thugs said in the statement. “We echo the call to local and federal government to divest from the police, to redistribute the stolen wealth of the billionaire class, and to invest in what our people need to live in peace, dignity, and abundance: universal health care and housing, public jobs programs and cash assistance, and safe working conditions.” Pol Pot could have written that. It so flat out idiotic, so racist, so 19th century, so My Little Pony vague and insipid that it is amazing the lumpenprole who wrote it could summon the mental strength to bring finger to keyboard.
A vicious communist street organizer chimed in with this, “Companies are faced with a ‘Which side are you on?’ moment due to growing support for the BLM movement,” said Maurice Mitchell, national commandant of the Working Families Party and a rabid insect working for the Movement for Black Lives, a national coalition of 150 black-led organizations, all shilling for white socialists.
“If I was a decision-maker that was considering whether or not to meet the demands of the unions, I would be scared,” Mitchell said. “This movement is spreading. We’ve been on the streets consistently, we’re building on the electoral front, and now we’re seeing this conversation at the highest levels of labor.”
Scared Maurice? Only a coward would be scared of you and your ilk. As for the remaining actual Americans who still belong to unions, more than the wind indicates they won’t be listening to their Bolshevik leadership come November.
