If you still had any doubt on whether unions’ main interest is protecting employees’ jobs or blindly supporting any candidate with a “D” after their name on the ballot, this should put it to rest.
While George Allen has long-fought the EPA and the Obama administraion’s “War on Coal” that even today is costing Virginians their jobs, Tim Kaine’s union allies are resorting to calling Allen a racist.
Workers’ Voice is putting $54,000 into web ads hitting Allen in Northern Virginia over a range of race-related controversies. One ad says Allen “hung a Confederate flag in his living room,” another that he “voted against MLK Day” and another that he “kept a noose in his law office.” One ad just says “Macaca.”
Fearmongering and name calling doesn’t create a single job. Neither Kaine nor his union buddies have any idea how to create jobs, so they fall back on what they know best — attack and demagogue. Kaine showed he is quite capable of doing that as the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee.
