Left Declares War On Tea Party
The Left's rhetorical war of words against the Tea Party has only heightened this Labor Day weekend. A renowned race baiter, Rev. Jesse Jackson, declared the Tea Party's support of the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution as tantamount to supporting the Slave Amendment. The Tenth Amendment, a part of the Bill of Rights, specifically reserves those powers not granted to the federal government, nor prohibited to be exercised by the states, to the states and the people.
In a speech to workers in Michigan, Teamsters union boss James Hoffa declared war on the Tea Party and called on union members to "take these sons of bitches out." President Obama, who was present at the Labor Day event when the controversial remarks were delivered, has not distanced himself from Hoffa's statement. Presumably, this is a call to commit violent acts against members of the Tea Party. Speaking at a labor rally in Ohio, Vice President Joe Biden said:“You are the only folks keeping the barbarians from the gates…the other side has declared war on labor’s house.” Nice friends you have, Mr. President.
