In case no one has noticed, I should state that I don’t consider the Mainstream Press anymore reliable than reading chicken entrails or consulting an Ouija board, and slightly more biased than the old Soviet Pravda and Tass and Joseph Goebbels Propaganda Ministry. Around 1600 today, I was searching for a particular story and having trouble finding it. With all the stuff hitting the fan around the globe and especially in this country, what are our beloved Newspeak talking heads keeping us informed on instead?

I’m not kidding. Even I couldn’t make such crap up. As if the job situation weren’t bad enough, it seems that many satirists will be joining the ranks of the unemployed. Anyway, I finally found the particular news item I was looking for on both MSNBC and Fox.
Before we get to it, we’ll have to set the stage with Jimmy Hoffa Junior at a rally for Obama saying of the Tea Party, “Let’s Take These Sons of bitches Out!” Or, as CBS put it, “Jimmy Hoffa warns union crowd in Detroit of the ‘war on workers.’” Where is everyone from the President on down to NPR’s eight listeners screaming it to the rafters that we must tone down the hate-filled rhetoric? Where are the media talking heads bleating for “civil discourse” and an end to hate speech? Instead, we get the Loony Left attacking Fox News for “taking the quote out of context.” If ever there was a case of the pot calling the kettle black…where’s Katie Couric when you really need some good “editing”.
You see, Jimmy Jr. was only referring to voting when he said:
"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. But everyone here’s got to vote. If we go back, and keep the eye on the prize, let’s take these son of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong."
Hmmm. Let’s see. Army. Battle. War. Win the war. Fight. Ready to march. Let’s take out these sons of bitches! Yeah, sure sounds like he was just talking about voting to me.
Fortunately, appearing immediately afterwards, “President” Obama chastised the union thug for his call for violence by saying, “And if, as has been discussed in recent days, their death helps usher in more civility in our public discourse, let us remember it is not because a simple lack of civility caused this tragedy -- it did not -- but rather because only a more civil and honest public discourse can help us face up to the challenges of our nation in a way that would make them proud.”
No, wait, he said that after the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson awhile back, when the Dems and the press tried to blame it all on talk radio, the Tea Party, and Sarah Palin spewing out their “hate-filled rhetoric.” When Hoffa made his remarks, and VP Biden was saying at another AFL/CIO rally in Ohio, “It is a fight literally for our right to exist. Don’t misunderstand what this is….You are the only folks keeping the barbarians from the gates,” what Obama actually said in rebuttal to these calls for violence was….(sounds of crickets chirping, wind sighing in the trees). And by gum, he meant it.
Then, golly gee, just a few days later…
LONGVIEW, Wash. — Hundreds of Longshoremen stormed the Port of Longview early Thursday, overpowered and held security guards, damaged railroad cars, and dumped grain that is the center of a labor dispute, officials said.Let’s see here; violating federal restraining order, kidnapping, destruction of private property, breaking and entering, threats to do bodily harm (baseball bats). One could even include assault, one of the definitions being, “Intentionally or knowingly threatening someone else…with imminent bodily injury.” Dictionary.com defines terrorism as, “the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.” Yet we don’t hear the word terrorist being used in conjunction with any of these acts, we hear the word terrorist given to anyone associated with the Tea Party for not agreeing with the Regime. Nope, don’t see a reason why anyone should be arrested, or even chastised.
The International Longshore and Warehouse Union dispute spread to Seattle, Tacoma, Everett and Anacortes ports ahead of a court hearing scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Thursday in Tacoma, where a judge is expected to consider alleged union violations of a previous restraining order.
The Longview blockade appeared to defy a federal restraining order issued last week against the union after it was accused of assaults and death threats.
On Thursday, six guards were held hostage for a couple of hours after 500 or more Longshoremen broke down Longview gates about 4:30 a.m. PT (7:30 a.m. ET) and smashed windows in the guard shack, said Longview Police Chief Jim Duscha.
Most of the protesters returned to their union hall after cutting brake lines and spilling grain from car at the EGT Terminal, Duscha said.
"We're not surprised," Duscha said. "A lot of the protesters were telling us this is only the start."
One [police] sergeant was threatened with baseball bats and retreated, Duscha said.
No one was hurt, and nobody has been arrested.
Which only gives the green light to more of the same.
