Jay Carney: “We Would Deplore Acts of Violence at Union Protests”


Well, we finally have a condemnation of union violence from the White House! Sort of!

The Hill reports:

White House press secretary Jay Carney on Thursday responded to reports of violence at union rallies in Michigan earlier this week, as labor groups protested the passage of a “right-to-work” law.

Carney said he hadn’t discussed the reports with President Obama. “I haven’t discussed reports like that with him, so I’m not sure if he’s aware of it, but we would deplore violence in any case,” Carney said Thursday.

Michigan State Police vowed to investigate all reported acts of violence during the protests, including one in which Fox News contributor Steven Crowder was attacked by labor protesters, according to the Lansing State Journal.

Note his use of the conditional – “we would deplore violence,” he stated, as if to say – not that anything “like that” has been proven (we sure haven’t seen verification of these reports on MSNBC or John Stewart,) in any case – as if to say – “hey,  we may yet be able to pin the blame on the tea partiers…”

And really. Does he really expect people to believe that the President, (who had just traveled to Michigan the day before to support the unionistas protesting the bill) isn’t “aware” of what’s going on there with his union allies?

His good pal,Richard Trumka claims he visits the White House 2-3 times a week, and has “conversations everyday with someone in the White House or in the administration.”


But no, Obama’s just too busy with the extraordinary demands of his office to countenance such small, piddling things as AFP’s destroyed tent, or Steven Crowder’s chipped tooth and gashed forehead…

  1. We would, would we? Looks like another in a series of “move along; nothing to see here” propaganda.
    It is 1938 and we are Europe.


  2. Lighten up on Jay Carney. He is doing what he is supposed to. The only difference between Baghdad Bob and him is that Obama is not likely to have him killed.


  3. One has to understand where the prez and his mouthpiece are coming from. It is like the world (including the present administration) condemning Israel for hitting back at Hamas. They never bother to note that Hamas sends numerous rockets into Israel almost daily, only that Israel attacks Hamas positions and people.

    Of course, because the skirts of Hamas so cowardly hide behind women, children and elderly for protection, it is the fault of Israel when those nearby are injured or killed in collateral damage. But hey, they shouldn’t have been hitting back to begin with!

    And just so, the violence perpetrated by the union isn’t violence at all; it is ignored by the socialists because, in their minds, it either never happens or is totally justified because the folks being beaten deserve it!
