While the Maryland Democrat machine in Annapolis was conspiring to violate citizens’ second amendment rights in the name of “reducing violence,” one Maryland Democrat was trying to incite some. House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) – the self-proclaimed “tax tax, spend spend” Democrat – was 3000 miles away from his state and district goading union workers into “raising hell” in the streets over the sequestration cuts President Obama demanded.
“My message to all of you is be angry at Congress, the people who are creating the policy,” Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer said of across-the-board federal budget cuts known as sequestration. “You ought to raise hell. You ought to be out on the streets.”
Imagine the bed wetting that would be occurring on MSNBC right now if, say, Michelle Bachman (R-MN) had said the same words to a Tea Party group. The double standard is obvious to everyone and anyone with a brain knows the majority of the media is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democrat party. They will let Hoyer slide even though stoking angry union mobs is not a simple metaphor in Obama’s America.
Hoyer is certainly aware of what happens when union thugs get angry and raise hell in the streets.
- September 2010: AFL-CIO chief Richard Trumka praises Nancy Pelosi for taking Obamacare and driving “it down the Republicans’ throats and out their backsides.”
- August 2011: Striking Communications Workers of America declare “open season” on Verizon. Dozens of cases of sabotaged cable lines are reported.
- September 2011: ILWU bosses lead a “Days of Rage” protest at Port of Longview, Wash., taking a half-dozen guards hostage, sabotaging railroad cars, dumping grain, smashing windows, cutting brake lines, threatening a local TV station and blocking trains in violation of a judicial restraining order.
- September 2011: Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa screams: “President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these son of bitches out…”
Astonishingly, Hoyer then had the gall to complain about the “new style” in Washington DC:
“The new style is to incite, inflame the public to have enmity to the other side,” he said. “When you incite one segment against the other, you should not be surprised you’ve got a polarized country.”
