Dem Rep to Unions: Get Out In The Street and Get Bloody!
So much for the New Tone in Politics:
A Democratic Congressman from Massachusetts is raising the stakes in the nation’s fight over the future of public employee unions, saying emails aren’t enough to show support and that it is time to “get a little bloody.”
“I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an email to get you going. Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary,” Rep. Mike Capuano (D-Ma.) told a crowd in Boston on Tuesday rallying in solidarity for Wisconsin union members.
Remember after Gabrielle Giffords got shot, we were barraged with a seemingly endless repetition of how violent metaphors cause wackos to go off the deep end… so will those same finger-waggers now wag the finger in the face of Rep. Capuano about his his violent rhetoric? Or will they merely wink and nod?
To ask the question is to answer it.
