UPDATE: Hoffa: ‘Take Out’ congressional Republicans

CNN’s Political Tracker blog reports that Jim Hoffa, president of the International Brotherhood of the Teamsters, referred to congressional Republicans by saying, “Let’s take these sons of bitches out.”  I guess this is part of Obama’s “new tone.” The article continues:

“Everybody here has a vote,” Hoffa said Monday. “If we go back and we keep the eye on the prize. Let’s take these sons of bitches out and give America back to America where we belong.”

The event was part of Obama’s Labor Day plans to spend the day with “workers and their families as well as discuss his bipartisan efforts to create jobs and strengthen our economy,” wrote the White House in a press release.

On Sunday, Hoffa called American companies that do not spend their capital in the United States unpatriotic.

“I think the president should challenge the patriotism of these American corporations that are sitting on the sidelines,” Hoffa said on CNN’s State of the Union.

Hoffa has presided over the Teamster’s 1.4 million members since 1999.

 

UPDATE:

Real Clear Politics has even more details on Hoffa’s comments at an Obama event.  He went on to state the following:

“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.”

“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.”

    It’s time for legal action against Hoffa. He has clearly made terroristic threats to millions of Americans. What does he mean exactly by ” Take us Out ” ? Does that mean kill us? Beat us up?
