“Take These [Tea Party] SOBs Out” Says Teamsters Pres. Hoffa

The warm-up act for President Obama’s Labor Day speech in Detroit lit the stage on fire before he could even get there.
International Brotherhood of Teamsters President James Hoffa, Jr. made some remarks to the heavily-unionized crowd that gathered. He took direct shots at the Tea Party and their “war on workers,” according to him.
After reminding the crowd and the president that they need jobs, Hoffa gave instructions to the onlookers:
“If we go back and keep our eye on the prize, let’s take these son of a bitches out and give America back to America where we belong.”
Of course, conservative media are up in arms about the comment. FOX News, in particular, has taken that one sentence and run with it. They are trying to say that he is inciting violence. However, they seem to be very quiet when Tea Partiers get out of line at their rallies. Just my observation.
