Jimmy Hoffa, on Michigan: “We’re Going to Have a Civil War”

Yes, this is the same elegant creature who screeched about “taking out” Tea Party “son-of-a-bitches” [sic] at a presidential event last year. In case you’d forgotten, both the White House and the DNC conspicuously declined to repudiate his vituperation at the time.

“What they’re doing is basically betraying democracy,” he told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin. “If there’s any question here, let’s put it on the ballot and let the people of Michigan decide what’s good for Michigan.” Proponents of the legislation say it gives workers more freedom, while opponents say a less robust union presence will negatively affect workers’ rights. Hoffa also argued that those who don’t pay union dues will be considered “free riders,” as they’re getting the same benefits from union representation without the cost.



Don’t bother calling; the civility police are off duty these days. Let’s address each of Hoffa’s points: (1) The “war” statement doesn’t sound like a lamentation; it sounds like a threat. Hoffa sounds almost giddy about the division and acrimony, like he’s thirsty for more. Based on yesterday’s displays of organized labor’s appalling thuggery, people would be wise to take him at his word.
