Democrat Congressman Calls For Blood in Wisconsin

 

Hattip to Instapundit. 

A Democratic Congressman from Massachusetts is raising the stakes in the nation’s fight over the future of public employee unions, saying emails aren’t enough to show support and that it is time to “get a little bloody.”

“I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an email to get you going. Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary,” Rep. Mike Capuano (D-Ma.) told a crowd in Boston on Tuesday rallying in solidarity for Wisconsin union members.

Am I shocked? 

   

Nah, this type of red meat heated rhetoric is common place when Democrats are attempting to whip up their union auxiliaries, and has been for generations.  The difference is that in the age of the internet everyone gets to hear about it and not just the union legbreakers.

Update:  Capuano was part of the civility chorus after the Giffords shootings:

“What the hell is going on?’’ said Representative Michael Capuano, a Somerville Democrat. “There’s always some degree of tension in politics; everybody knows the last couple of years there’s been an intentional increase in the degree of heat in political discourse. . . . If nothing else good comes out of this, I’m hoping it causes people to reconsider how they deal with things.’’

Congressman, I trust that when you are calling for the blood of your adversaries in the future, you will do so in the most civil manner possible.

  1. Oh yes, he wants “you people” to go do the bloody work for him. He’s one of the ruling class don’t you know who is most likely responsible for but above all that rift raft in the rundown, littered, full of unemployed or homeless, and graffiti decorated streets of his district.

  2. It’s almost as if those Democratic calls for civility in the wake of the Tucson massacre had a self-serving, partisan component. Surely that can’t be.

  3. They are manning the barricades because when WI Gov Wlaker prevails, gov employee unions can no use taxpayers’ money to fund election campaigns for big gov/tax and spend/pro-abortion, i.e., Dem candidates.

  4. Oops, the correct title is Our Lady of Good HELP — the first and only approved Marian apparition in Wisconsin (and in the entire U.S.)
