If it's a class war they want, I think they should get it...

This is why I had to chuckle heartily about the right wing and Fox Noize getting their panties in a twist about Teamster President James Hoffa's remarks at a Labor Day rally yesterday. The right's view is they they and only they are allowed to aggressively express their political views. And Hoffa's remarks must have hit a soft spot because boy did they squeal like stuck pigs (mostly because Fox Noize deceptively edited the video to make it sound more sinister than it was). Anyhow, fuck the right, fuck the teahadists and fuck Fox Noize. It's about time someone said what Hoffa said and stuck by their guns when the crybabies screamed about it. But here's really why I'm not bothered by Hoffa's remarks (vicious attacks like the following have been taking place against Obama and the Democrats since Obama's election):

Today, Bradblog’s Brad Friedman reports for Mother Jones about a secret meeting that the right-wing oil billionaire Koch brothers held at a Colorado resort in June with hundreds of wealthy donors who plotted to finance right-wing causes and elect conservative politicians.

Friedman reports that audio he obtained from the conference reveals that Charles Koch alarmingly referred to President Obama as “Saddam Hussein,” saying that the right had to fight the “mother of all wars.” He rallied his guests to donate millions of dollars to help defeat Obama and boost other right-wing causes. Listen to audio of these remarks obtained by Friedman:

Honestly, I could give a shit less how much money Charles and David Koch have or how Christian they consider themselves. I view them as evil men who are at war with Democracy and with working Americans. They deserve neither respect or deference. They are the modern day Benedict Arnolds and they had better realize one thing -- they may have all of the money, but "We The People" have the numbers. And there endeth the lesson.
