VP Biden Sides With Union Thugs In Conference Call, Praises Them For Keeing "Barbarians From The Gate"

After the tragic shooting in Tucson, AZ this past January, there was a lot of talk about "civility" from liberals and the Obama Regime, directed mostly at conservatives for a tragedy we had no part in.

In the last few weeks, after the assaults, death threats, vandalism, and other acts of thuggery committed by Left-wing allied labor unions against Republicans, bloggers and Tea Party activists, you don't hear anymore about the "new tone."

In fact, Vice President Joe Bite Me praised the union thugs today (TheBlaze).
During a conference call with thousands of activists Thursday, Vice President Joe Biden joined Labor Secretary Hilda Solis and AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka in commending union protesters for standing up to Republicans across the country.

“You guys built the middle class,“ Biden said during the ”virtual town hall” conversation hosted by the AFL-CIO. “I would just emphasize what Hilda [Solis] said and say it slightly different: We don’t see the value of collective bargaining, we see the absolute positive necessity of collective bargaining.

“Let’s get something straight,” he continued. “The only people who have the capacity — organizational capacity and muscle — to keep, as they say, the barbarians from the gate, is organized labor. And make no mistake about it, the guys on the other team get it. They know if they cripple labor, the gate is open, man. The gate is wide open. And we know that too.”

...In a more impassioned plea, Biden criticized conservatives for their “orgy” of greed, which he claimed led to the recent economic downturn.

“I find this ridiculous,” he said. “The very philosophy, the very conservative people who got us in this ditch, who created — through their greed — this orgy of focusing on the super wealthy and Wall Street without regulations, the very people who drove us into this ditch, are now the people using you guys as the scapegoats. This is what you call blaming the victim. The people of the neighborhoods we all grew up in and you guys live in, organized labor, they’re the very people getting killed right now by this economy. And the audacity these guys that come along and say, ‘Hey, this is the fault of collective bargaining’ — that is malarkey.”
Well if collecitve bargaining is so great, then why don't federal employees have it, Vice President Bite Me?

Pay attention, because every time a Democrat and especially this Regime, talks about "working Americans," they mean union only. Because the unions grease the rails for the Democrats. Bite Me and Obama could care less about those of us who are non-union workers who had to sacrifice for the sake of keeping a job.

“The only people who have the capacity — organizational capacity and muscle — to keep, as they say, the barbarians from the gate, is organized labor."

The very definition of barbarism is the use of "muscle" to obtain political power.
