Democrat Congressman Calls for Union Violence

Do not expect the “mainstream” news media to pay much attention to this. They are too busy inventing violence from the right to pay attention to real violence from the left. But a Democrat Congressman has called for unions to “get out on the streets and get a little bloody.”

“I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an email to get you going. Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary,” Rep. Mike Capuano (D-Ma.) told a crowd in Boston on Tuesday rallying in solidarity for Wisconsin union members.

I have not yet been able to find video, but he reportedly gestured over at a tea party rally when he made those remarks. Given the past record of union violence against tea partiers, that makes his speech even more inexcusable.

Democrats sure are showing their true union colors lately, are they not?

Here's a video from the speech, though the person recording it moved the camera after Capuano had started to make that comment, you can see most of it, and hear all of it

Thanks. That video covers what he said quite well.
