Dem lawmaker on labor protests: ‘Get a little bloody when necessary’ –

From The Hill’s Blog Briefing Room:

Sometimes it’s necessary to get out on the streets and “get a little bloody,” a Massachusetts Democrat said Tuesday in reference to labor battles in Wisconsin.

Rep. Michael Capuano (D-Mass.) fired up 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 Dorchester Reporter. “Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary.”

Capuano made his remarks before a crowd of union members in Boston, along with other members of the state’s congressional delegation. Massachusetts has an influential union population that could loom large over the 2012 Senate race. Capuano is considering getting in that race to challenge Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) next fall.

“This is going to be a struggle at least for the next two years. Let’s be serious about this. They’re not going to back down and we’re not going to back down. This is a struggle for the hearts and minds of America,” Capuano told union members.

Yeah, Mr. Capuano, the union thugs need to start beating people up. Then the public will really turn against them, you moron.  I agree that “this is a struggle for the hearts and minds of America,” but its a battle that the public-sector unions are sure to lose.

    Needless to say what the response would be if one of us said it. Oh, but no one’s ever heard of this guy, so it’s okay.

  2. It’s a sound position actually. It’s past time that Americans got the union thugs and those who support them more than a little bloody.

    Gut a few dozen or so of them with .00 buckshot and the rest will scatter and go back into their holes. 😉

    Hey! They want to get bloody so let’s bloody them up bit. Just saying…
