The Jimmy Hoffa Jr. vs. The Tea Party Controversy

Hoffa attempts to clarify his earlier statement.

Teamsters Union president Jimmy Hoffa Jr. likened the political struggle between unions and conservatives to a war, saying “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.”

Hoffa added a statement directed to the current administration: “President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these son of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong,”

The message is clear even if the grammar isn’t.

The conservative media was quick to denounce Hoffa’s use of what they termed “violent rhetoric”.
