Government-financed political propaganda at the Department of Labor is causing discomfort for some employees.
Signs posted in at least 20 DOL elevators depict Secretary Hilda Solis carrying a bullhorn and rallying alongside the Rev. Al Sharpton, the Free Beacon has learned. Next to the pictures is a quote from Solis that reads in part: “We all march in our own way.”
“Whether we take to the streets or simply do our work with integrity and commitment here at the U.S. Department of Labor… we are all marching toward the same goals: safe workplaces, fair pay, dignity of the job, secure retirement, and opportunities to make a better life,” the poster states.
It concludes with a call to action.
“I believe in the power of collective action. We all play a role. We all march.”
Several employees labeled the ads as offensive, referring to them as shameless political propaganda, said one DOL employee who requested anonymity.
“It is propaganda. This is what being in a Chinese factory during the Cultural Revolution is like,” the source said. “It’s offensive. It’s saying that we’re all on the side of Trayvon Martin, or whatever Sharpton is doing, and the people of Labor should be for it.”
The source, who noted that other employees have recoiled at the sight of the posters, added that the endorsement of Sharpton and his tactics is offensive to Jewish people.
“It’s offensive to Jewish people because Sharpton was the engineer of a pogrom in Crown Heights” New York, explained the source.
Sure it’s blatant propaganda, but what else would you expect from an administration that turned the NEA into a propaganda machine for Obama and is shameless enough to send the First Lady out to tell the kiddies how to convince family members (who are “wrong people”) to vote for Barack.
The pool reporter estimated that there were a couple dozen kids in the audience of about 350, and Michelle Obama spent much of her speech talking to them.
“I mean, I can’t tell you in the last election how many grandparents I ran into who said, I wasn’t going to vote for Barack Obama until my grandson talked to me, until my great-grandson talked to me, and talked about the future he wanted for this country,” she said.
“You can get out there with your parents. You guys can knock on doors. I had one young lady who brought me a petition — she’s already working. You can convince wrong people. Sometimes we don’t listen to ourselves, but we will listen to our children.”
No, nothing surprises me about this bunch, anymore.
Via The Blaze:
The picture is from a march a few weeks ago in Alabama. Solis joined an array of activists to reenact the historic civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery.
On her right arm is SEIU exec R. Eliseo Medina. On her left is, of course, MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton. And that’s Jesse Jackson on the other side of Delores Huerta and AFL-CIO Executive Vice President Arlene Holt Baker.
The photo depicts Solis acting as an emissary of the Obama administration protesting against Alabama’s strict new law combating illegal immigration. Solis has her arms locked with Sharpton, and Jackson is a few feet away. The poster also carries a message for federal government employees — who are traditionally expected to be apolitical in the performance of their duties.
An interesting place for the Labor Secretary to be, since last I checked, illegal immigrants were taking jobs away from American workers.
