Ed Schultz is “accepting the challenge”, whatever that means. What he described as he and Glenn Beck’s “war of words all week long” was actually he, “Genius Envy”, being made the butt of jokes, all week long, but never mind that. To his mind, he’s got something to prove.
Schultz, (who recently threw a hissy fit because his network won’t even use him in election night promos) can drum up at least as big a march on Washington as that “phoney, preachy, self centered” Glenn Beck! We are talking, BIG SHAKES!
Glenn Beck had a lot of help, you know!
Ed Schultz is going to bring “real Americans” together, with a just a teensy weensy bit of help from big Labor, (WHO HAVE BEEN UNDER ATTACK FOR THIRTY YEARS! by the way)…
Did Schmultz mention that that One Nation Working Together rally he’s so honored to be a part of was already made public August 2nd on the Marxist website, People’s World, weeks before Glenn Beck’s massive “so called” Restoring Honor rally?
The AFL-CIO executive committee voted unanimously this morning to join One Nation, Working Together, a new national coalition of labor and civil rights groups that has as its purpose to “reorder America’s priorities by investing in the nation’s most valuable resource – its people.”
The labor, civil rights, environmental, faith and other organizations that have formed the new coalition intend to replace unemployment and economic crisis faced by the country’s majority with “nothing less than a future of shared prosperity for all our people,” the AFL-CIO said in a statement after it voted to join One Nation.
“None of us alone have been able to achieve our priorities,” said Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO.
One Nation’s first official act as a coalition will be a march on Washington on Oct. 2, which unions say will energize an army of tens of thousands who will return to their neighborhoods, churches, schools and voting booths to prevent a Republican takeover of Congress in November and begin building a new permanent coalition to fight for a progressive agenda.
So, Big Labor is organizing the march they announced over a month ago, and Genius is going to try to take credit for however many lefties show up. Truly pathetic.
Doug Ross recently reported on the Frankenstein monster of SEIU, AFL-CIO and AFSCME spending a combined total of 150 million dollars on the mid-term elections:
CFIF notes that two of the nation’s largest unions — Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) — will spend about $100 million supporting Democrats in the 2010 midterms. In addition, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union (AFSCME) will donate an additional $50 million to the Democrat cause.
Not only do they think you’re stupid, they think their members are even dumber. After all, that money could be spent on member benefits. Like a $1,000 check for 150,000 members. Or putting some money into the dramatically underfunded pensions.
If Schmultz were truly concerned about the union rank and file, he might wonder aloud why his Big Labor buds are blowing millions of dollars of members’ dues on Dem losers in the upcoming elections when they could be spending it on their drastically underfunded pensions?
He might ask why union bosses “have directed millions of dollars to their own generous pay packages and to their Democrat cronies, while leaving rank-and-file members’ retirements at risk”.
He might learn that Big Labor thinks it can continue to rob and spend with impunity, because they can dump their benefit obligations onto the taxpayers.
… they’re now pushing federal legislation to dump grossly underfunded union pension plans into the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PGBC). In other words, labor leaders want a bailout for union pensions…
Michelle Malkin recently asked: Hasn’t the SEIU wasted enough of its members’ (and taxpayers’ ) money?
$10 million down the drain in Arkansas for the Purple Army’s failed bid to unseat Democrat Blanche Lincoln.
$10 million on a nasty lawsuit against a competing union in California.
Another $44 million budgeted for left-wing political lobbying in the coming election cycle.
Who knows how much on transporting SEIU radicals to bully bank execs and their families at their private residences.
Down the drain.
The Union rank and file Smultz thinks he’s standing up for, may not show up in the numbers he’d like to see, as people with working brain cells are not looking to the very people who are part of the problem to solve the unemployment problem. But there will, no doubt, be plenty of hard left, commie moonbats in attendance, and I for one, will be honored to feature the spectacle on my blog on October 3rd.
