Civility? Democrat Congressman Urges the Unions to Get “Bloody”

This is from The Hill, the blog Briefing Room: “Democrat Urges Unions to ‘Get a Little Bloody When Necessary’ — Sometimes it’s necessary to get out on the streets and ‘get a little bloody,’ a Massachusetts Democrat said Tuesday… Rep. Michael Capuano (D-Mass.) fired up a group of union members in Boston with a speech urging them to work down in the trenches to fend off limits to workers’ rights like those proposed in Wisconsin. ‘I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an e-mail to get you going,’ Capuano said, according to the Dorchester Reporter.

“‘Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary.'” Well, things got “a little bloody” in Tucson, as I recall. Things got “a little bloody” in Tucson, Arizona, and the leader of the Democrat Party and the leader of the unions said, “That kind of stuff has to stop!” Now, that happened some weeks ago, and yet weeks later here is a Democrat advocating that the streets get a little bloody because of what’s happening in Wisconsin. Now, ladies and gentlemen, if Obama’s speeches in Tucson don’t change the behavior of Democrats, then who is it that leads that party? Well, let’s see. The unions pay the bills, and they provide the votes.
