WAR FOREVER  12:02 pm September 6, 2011

War On Everyone Round One Million: Charles Koch Defeats Jimmy Hoffa

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

silly socialists probably think wars are for free.America’s favorite fundraising tool, “the other side declaring terrible war on everyone else,” got a shiny new box of ammo, haha, from a PG-13 Labor Day pep talk Jimmy Hoffa gave to a crowd of union supporters calling for Democratic voters to declare war on the GOP and to “take these son-of-a-bitches out” at the ballot box, meaning, who else, the Tea Party. This unremarkable swear-y  war speech is the one that has the Internet/Twitter/the Space Lizards super pissed off, because Fox News predictably edited out the part where Hoffa refers to voting to make it sound like he wants union supporters to off Tea Party supporters. Outrageous outrage! But Hoffa is what Charles Koch might call “an amateur warlord” and a socialist, because his speech lacked murderous dictator references and demands for cash from oppressed millionaires. Charles Koch raises him a “Saddam Hussein Obama” and a veiled threat for civilizational collapse to get the war dollars flowing in the direction of Charles Koch and war money hanger-on Michele Bachmann.

Mother Jones got hold of an audio recording from a secret, closed-door June sleeper cell meeting of the Koch Brothers and America’s robber barons that doesn’t even need to be edited to sound insane and murderous. Here is Charles Koch trying to raise money to fight “Saddam Hussein Obama” in the transcript from the BRAD Blog:

But we’ve been talking about — we have Saddam Hussein, this is the Mother of All Wars we’ve got in the next 18 months. For the life or death of this country. So, I’m not going to do this to put any pressure on anyone here, mind you. This is not pressure. But if this makes your heart feel glad and you want to be more forthcoming, then so be it.

THAT is how you call for war and outrage, Jimmy Hoffa.

And of course this is just a plot against Michele Bachmann, who puked this helpless cry for monies out to her mailing list:

Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa’s violent rhetoric continued at a rally with President Obama, as he issued a profanity laced rant against the Tea Party calling for union members to declare war against our conservative values, and “take those sons of bitches out.”

Hoffa and his well-funded liberal allies are scared of our momentum, and will do anything to try and silence our voices. But, we won’t go quietly into the night. Will you follow this link and make a donation to help me defend myself against their profane and vicious attacks?

And so, children, there may not be any jobs or health care or education for anyone, but there is always money in endless WAR! Invest your last five dollars accordingly.  [TPM/Mother Jones/The Week/Michele Bachmann Spam List]

I thought Jimmy Hoffa was buried under the 50 yard line at the Meadowlands.

genxr September 6, 2011 at 12:08 pm

Buried… with votes!

GunToting[Redacted] September 6, 2011 at 12:08 pm

Meadowlands libel!

Biel_ze_Bubba September 6, 2011 at 12:10 pm

If only the Kochs would go and battle him on (or under) his own turf.

Pristine_ODummy September 6, 2011 at 5:45 pm

Tell me what you've got planned for them, Biely. I long to hear you whisper sweet "Nothing good" in my ear.

Biel_ze_Bubba September 7, 2011 at 3:15 pm

No immediate plans, but I'm not worried … I've got Hoffa down here to consult with, and he's taking this one personally. Quite an imagination he has … I could almost call it "diabolical".

Pristine_ODummy September 7, 2011 at 3:32 pm

You sure do know how to make a person happy, Biely. Tell Jimmy I support his son 110%. I'm hoping he'll take that as a reason *not* to think up any, um, entertainment for me.

weejee September 6, 2011 at 12:11 pm

I heard one set of goal posts is the stake in his heart.

Tundra Grifter September 6, 2011 at 12:13 pm

They found Jimmy Hoffa at McDonald's.

Which one?

All of them.

mookwrthwilson September 6, 2011 at 12:14 pm

That was the endzone…and that stadium is gone…it's now a parking lot or a pregame party tent or something like that…

Terry September 6, 2011 at 1:13 pm

Naw, too frickin far to drive from Detroit with a body in the trunk. Jimmy was buried someplace deep in the greater Detroit area.

Callyson September 6, 2011 at 2:11 pm

Jimmy lives with Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, and Elvis in an underground cave: usually their spirits only come out at night, but this is an emergency…

tcaalaw September 7, 2011 at 8:57 am

The Mythbusters tested that and couldn't find any evidence of a body buried under the field.

Buzz Feedback September 6, 2011 at 12:06 pm

Michelle's detachment from reality is really good for her complexion.

Pristine_ODummy September 6, 2011 at 5:45 pm

You must be referring to the tinted spackle she now buys in the 20-lb "mix-it-yourself" bags.

Lucidamente1 September 6, 2011 at 12:08 pm

"Hoffa and his well-funded liberal allies are scared of our momentum." Yeah, just ask Ed Rollins.

Sue4466 September 6, 2011 at 12:22 pm

Hey, that momentum got her all the way to third, right after batshit Rick Perry and dipshit Mittens.

chicken_thief September 6, 2011 at 3:00 pm

At this point back in Ought-Eight election cycle wasn't some goober Muzlin dude in 3rd place behind Hilldog and Baby Daddy Edwards?

Lucidamente1 September 6, 2011 at 3:44 pm

Yeah, and Ed Rollins was working for Mike Huckabee.

WhatTheHeck September 6, 2011 at 12:08 pm

As Michele's war chest shrinks, so do her admirers.

Redhead September 6, 2011 at 12:30 pm

Yet, the more her chest shrinks, Marcus becomes oddly more attracted to her.

littlebigdaddy September 6, 2011 at 12:49 pm

Yup, she's losing the fill-out-a-sweater race to Mama Grizzly, also.

chicken_thief September 6, 2011 at 3:01 pm

If only she had an Adam's apple like (m)Ann Coulter…

Limeylizzie September 6, 2011 at 1:01 pm

I read that as 'so do her antlers" I am clearly mentally ill.

Major Thom September 6, 2011 at 1:17 pm

So am I! In this business, that's not a handicap.

Fare la Volpe September 6, 2011 at 1:20 pm

Take me, Goblin King.

Pristine_ODummy September 6, 2011 at 5:47 pm

It's contagious. Read about Michele, yer brain gets a fungus.

Also, she would look better with antlers.

Anyone else notice her giant sticking-out ears?

Lovely imagery, Smurf, thanks for brightening up a rainy day.

Dexter Linwood September 7, 2011 at 5:19 am

That the Son of a Hoffa didn't threaten knee cappings is quite an improvement. The tea party should consider itself lucky for his mellowed son.

subsum September 6, 2011 at 12:12 pm

I'm game: let's take the sons of bitches out.

DahBoner September 6, 2011 at 1:42 pm

"Let's take the sons of bitches out."

May I suggest Golden Coral with the ever-flowing Chocolate waterfall, and now Cotton Candy..

flamingpdog September 6, 2011 at 12:12 pm

And the latest item in the "Who the fuck cares" category:
Presidential hopeful Herman Cain decried the speech as "name-calling" in an interview on Fox News shortly after Hoffa's remarks.

Beowoof September 6, 2011 at 12:17 pm

Republicans worried about being called names? One way to stop that would be to stop acting like an asshole; ya dumb son of a bitch.

starfanglednut September 6, 2011 at 1:29 pm

Yeah, cuz "socialist", "Kenyan usurper", "communist", "dictator", etc aren't name calling, no sireee.

TanzbodenKoenig September 6, 2011 at 12:13 pm

I'm just glad to see a Democrat doing something besides handing Republicans his wallet, the keys to his car and house, and his virgin daughters (or sons) and then calling it 'tough negotiations'

Buckminster September 6, 2011 at 12:56 pm

Glad to hear someone talking manning up and growing a pair.

Guppy06 September 6, 2011 at 1:18 pm

He's stumping for Obama, so… yeah, that's exactly what he's doing.

Pristine_ODummy September 6, 2011 at 5:55 pm

No, he isn't. He's supporting the best possible Democratic candidate.

Dexter Linwood September 7, 2011 at 5:20 am

Oh, just STFU already.

John Birf Society September 6, 2011 at 12:13 pm

Imagine the clutching at pearls had he said "Don't retreat, reload" (obviously directed towards fetuses).

TanzbodenKoenig September 6, 2011 at 12:15 pm

how does one reload a fetus?

Faux News has done more damage to the U.S. than Al Quaeda could ever dream of.

DahBoner September 6, 2011 at 1:44 pm

Remember when Roger Ailes was telling Nixon that he wanted to start something he called at the time, "GOP TV"?

Well, his dream came true…

lulzmonger September 7, 2011 at 1:39 am

Get out! Get out while you still can!
The lethal bullshit is coming from INSIDE THE REPUBLIC!

weejee September 6, 2011 at 12:15 pm

take these son-of-a-bitches out

Hoffa was suggesting libtards take Teatards out for coffee, or a date, or something. No violence there Michele you silly. If violence was intended he would have called them poopyheads® not SoBs. See Rollins absence already has MB missing the big points.

JustPixelz September 6, 2011 at 12:38 pm

Take them out … with our votes!

PuckStopsHere September 6, 2011 at 12:16 pm

You got your 14th Amendment remedies, you got your 19th Amendment remedies, and you got your SECOND Amendment remedies. Your call, bitches.

Limeylizzie September 6, 2011 at 1:27 pm

I have no idea what those are , other than that really, really, silly Second Amendment, but I upfisted you with alacrity!

PuckStopsHere September 6, 2011 at 3:58 pm

That would be your equal protection under the law, your giving unto the women the vote, and the gun thingy.

Biel_ze_Bubba September 6, 2011 at 5:29 pm

At least the teabaggers like one out of the three.

weejee September 6, 2011 at 1:05 pm

Si, but he's here occasionally.

SorosBot September 6, 2011 at 12:19 pm

A liberal saying "take those sons of bitches out" is horrible, just one of the worst things someone can say, worse than Hitler; but when a prominent Republican recommends shooting Democratic members of Congress, then someone actually shoots one of them, pointing out how horrible that rhetoric was is blood libel. Makes sense.

RadioEnron9/11 September 6, 2011 at 12:50 pm

Last week Russ Limbo called the President "a man-child" who can't do anything without a teleprompter, a doofus and a jackass in the space of two sentences. Makes sense.

Fare la Volpe September 6, 2011 at 1:22 pm

Rush's writers thought that was a real good one.

SorosBot September 6, 2011 at 2:05 pm

And he probably said "man-child" because he knew boy was too obviously racist. We can hear your dog-whistles, Rush.

unclejeems September 6, 2011 at 6:36 pm

Yes, and that "teleprompter" slur made it across the Atlantic in a microsecond. I read the same phrase today in a so-called original response to a Guardian article about Obama's re-election chances.

But hell, if your brain's the size of a doll's teacup, and your facility with English is nill, what else you gonna do. Think for yourself?

RadioEnron9/11 September 6, 2011 at 9:52 pm

Along with "in over his head, " "he's really not smart," fail and some others the teleprompter bullshit buzzword is one of their chorus of dog whistle trumpets.

Pristine_ODummy September 6, 2011 at 5:58 pm

It wasn't that long ago that some Good Ole Boy in the South was proposing selling hunting licenses for killing liberals. That, apparently, didn't nudge the horribilimeter.

Oblios_Cap September 6, 2011 at 12:19 pm

Hoffa and his well-funded liberal allies

We are? So Hobo Beans are now the official national currency?

friendlyskies September 6, 2011 at 12:58 pm

By "well-funded," the Republicans mean that they own refrigerators and cell phones.

SheriffRoscoe September 6, 2011 at 12:19 pm

Wake me when they get to the profanity.

Not_So_Much September 6, 2011 at 1:37 pm

I was going to add 'nudity' to your comment. But then I realized what these people look like and settled for just throwing up in my own mouth instead.

Polythene_Pam September 6, 2011 at 12:20 pm

I don't know why he felt the need to add that 'ballot box' part in, anyway.

Sue4466 September 6, 2011 at 12:21 pm

So, after years of the T'baggers holding rallies with cries of "take our country back," badly spelled signs equating Obama with Hitler, carrying actual loaded guns, talking of Second Amendment remedies for election results they disagree with, using "surveyor's marks" on Democratic congress people, carrying signs about watering the tree of liberty with the blood of tyrants, etc. now these assholes are upset that Jimmy Hoffa suggested Democrats VOTE against the GOP and T'Baggers? Because that's uncivil? Or because how dare anyone suggest democracy includes voting for anyone other than the GOP? Or is it just that they're upset someone in the Democratic party maybe shouted back once in a fucking while?

FUCK THEM ALL.

But seriously, how long before the Democrats fold and distance themselves from Hoffa?

How long before the media false equivalency dance?

Biel_ze_Bubba September 6, 2011 at 12:27 pm

Voting against the GOP is unpatriotic. Simple as that.

Mumbletypeg September 6, 2011 at 12:32 pm

Obama with Hitler, carrying actual loaded guns
stomping on necks, also~

Sparky_McGruff September 6, 2011 at 1:54 pm

Republicans, as a group, have incredibly thin skin. It insults them to their very core that anyone would disagree with them. It's not enough that Obama and the congressional dems cave in to them. They are insulted that anyone would ever disagree with them. They are even more insulted that anyone would ever point out that the facts disagree with them.

genxr September 6, 2011 at 12:22 pm

He cussed. That's another $100 million in the swear jar.

flamingpdog September 6, 2011 at 12:23 pm

Obama apologizes to the right wing for Hoffa's "hateful" speech in 5 .. 4 .. 3 …

MrFizzy September 6, 2011 at 1:19 pm

Or worse yet, thinks about it for a few weeks and then does nothing.

ProudLibunatic September 6, 2011 at 12:23 pm

It's about time, Mr. Hoffa, it's about time!
Good for you!

(Think of the pearl-clutching on the right as a bonus.)

CrunchyKnee September 6, 2011 at 12:24 pm

How to "take out" a tea bagger? Unplug his/her Hoveround.

BlueStateLibel September 6, 2011 at 12:24 pm

They're going to be outrageously outraged when the other side starts calling for guillotines. Seriously, you declare war on the U.S. economy and anyone who has to work for a living, and you're surprised that people might be a little pissed off?

Sue4466 September 6, 2011 at 12:53 pm

In their defense, given the largely apathetic response of most Americans–not to mention the general gutlessness of the Democratic party–to the decades long class war that's been raging against the working poor & middle class, they probably are surprised.

Though, if they bothered to know Hoffa is a union guy, they might have seen it coming.

LesBontemps September 6, 2011 at 12:25 pm

But, we won’t go quietly into the night.

Then go noisily, I really don't give a shit, just go.

Buckminster September 6, 2011 at 12:59 pm

Yeah, we don't care if you have to have a brass band playing Wagner operas, just GTFO.

Redhead September 6, 2011 at 12:25 pm

How dare them UNION members, with their actual jobs and their living wages, actually suggest change by voting, or "violent rhetoric" when edited certain ways! How Un-American of them! Advocating violent change is only for TRUE Amurikins, who always vote teabagger and who carry several assault rifles, proudly, with them on their Hoverrounds, which they purchased with Medicare and disability and government assistance, because they're too fat to work, and which they ride to rallies to protest socialist government programs and them brown people taking our jerrrbs! Don't these stoopid libruls know that only REAL Amurikins kin own guns or advocate using them – having a jerb makes you a brown person, not a REAL Amurikin!

proudgrampa September 6, 2011 at 12:26 pm

Sons of Bitches? That's it? Fuck. They don't know what profanity is (and probably wouldn't know it if they stepped in it).

proudgrampa September 6, 2011 at 12:28 pm

"…help me defend myself against their profane and vicious attacks…"

Oh, Michele, it's always about you, you, you, isn't it?

Weenus299 September 6, 2011 at 12:30 pm

I'm no PR specialist, but if my name were Jimmy Hoffa I'd change my name to something like "Sal Mineo" or "Kimbo Slice" or something.

UnionAgitator September 6, 2011 at 12:48 pm

Neither of those guys were portrayed by Jack Nicholson.

Jimmy Hoffa:

A name you can trust to make trouble . . . and trouble must be made.

mumbly_joe September 6, 2011 at 12:31 pm

Maybe the problem is that Jim Hoffa didn't follow the tea party's lead for non-violent protest, and bring loaded assault weapons with them to an Obama rally. Or that he didn't say that between now and election day is hunting season for teabaggers, and there is no bag limit (with votes, tho!).

Maybe it also would have helped if he specifically called out Allen West and called him a nigra and a pimp before seguing way to talking about his sexual fantasies about Nancy Pelosi. Decorum is important, you see!

charlesdegoal September 6, 2011 at 12:33 pm

Jimmy would make his old man proud.

UnionAgitator September 6, 2011 at 12:34 pm

RANT –

It’s a good start but the rhetoric needs ramped up and matched with civil disobedience.

Republicans are bullies and when stood up to they will back down.

Unions should call a general nationwide strike until all anti-worker laws are reversed.

LesBontemps September 6, 2011 at 1:01 pm

Between the War on Unions and the War on Poors ("you aren't poor if you own a refrigerator"), I can't understand why we aren't already stringing up industrialists and bankers by their intestines and building guillotines on the National Mall.

You ever try making the payments on a guillotine? Costs you an arm and a leg.

friendlyskies September 6, 2011 at 1:07 pm

Might as well, Drudge is already getting all post hoc ergo prompter hoc on his herd's confused asses and suggesting Ford is opening a new factory in India is because unions might strike. Nothing to do with the fact that minimum wage is US$2.50/hr.

Barrelhse September 6, 2011 at 1:23 pm

Funny you should say so. I was thinking along those lines last night, wondering if the workers could just stop working until these fucks get off our backs- and give back a little of what this country has given them by sharing the tax burden with those of us who struggle. My contempt for the Pigs is inexpressible.

Weenus299 September 6, 2011 at 12:34 pm

"Sons of bitches?" What, no God-Damned arrogant fuckwads? And where are the guns and bats and bricks and whatnot?

PhilippePetain September 6, 2011 at 12:35 pm

Next time just quote the facts: "Let's take the corn dog sucking, fudge packing, storm praying, bathroom stall blowing, fetus cuddling maniacs out." Has a nice rational quality to it that may be missing form the current rhetoric.

RedneckMuslin September 6, 2011 at 12:37 pm

Well, it's not your father's Teamsters anymore. The Kochsuckers would be dead by now. I MEAN DEAD!

Oblios_Cap September 6, 2011 at 12:38 pm

How dare them UNION members, with their actual jobs and their living wages, actually suggest change by voting

From what I read earlier the TeaTards should welcome the Union folks voting, what with them havin' houses and such. Not like those filthy poor, lazy socialistic type folk that live on gubbermint assistance like, you know, TeaTards.

EatsBabyDingos September 6, 2011 at 12:39 pm

I'd like Michele's war chest more if she took off her war bra.

It doesn't count as "profanity" if all you do is make me think of the f-word.

Demoncrats calling Repubicans names! My word. I believe I am having an attack of the vapors. We didn't have such disrespectful outbursts from the America-haters when the president was a more traditional type of man instead of a lying illegal socialist muslim.

Fuck, I love that word! Noun, verb, adjective, adverb, interjection. How versatile can you get???

ttommyunger September 6, 2011 at 12:47 pm

Meanwhile, the National Director of the SPCA, in a hastily called news conference decried the slanderous and defamatory language used against its wards of the female gender. "Our bitches have never, now or at any time in recorded history attempted to deprive humans of their healthcare, their job security or their retirement benefits", the Director stated in her prepared statement, "Our clients have and always will be man's best friend, not his sworn enemy, as some have proven to be. Mr. Hoffa will be hearing from our attorneys."

Except for the fact that a public-sector union guy would have to clean up afterwards…

Goonemeritus September 6, 2011 at 1:00 pm

I often lamented the loss in passion for generational leaders. Look at the sad state of affairs in organized crime. In three generations we have gone from the hands on leader ship of the old mustache Pete’s to today’s reality TV stars. Jimmy Hoffa senior would not have been talking about ballot box as his son clearly was he would have been advocating for a much more spirited defense of workers rights.

El Pinche September 6, 2011 at 1:03 pm

Yeah, it was a PG-13 speech at best. Needed more "Koch-sucking anti-American assfucks" and "anal ripping America raping teabaggers." Jimmy Hoffa should have consulted with Jim Jeffries first.

johnnyzhivago September 6, 2011 at 1:04 pm

Take those sons of bitches out… for a nice dinner and then maybe a movie…

Then, in the morning, just leave the money on the nightstand.

elviouslyqueer September 6, 2011 at 1:07 pm

Media Matters For America charged that [Hoffa's] clip had been deceptively edited in Fox's re-airing of it.

I am shocked, SHOCKED, I tell you, at the implication that Fox News would deliberately edit something in order to make liberals and the POTUS look bad. I shall now retire to my fainting couch and collapse in a mighty fit of the vapors.

HelmutNewton September 6, 2011 at 1:12 pm

Another phony 'Koch Approved™' news story. Maybe if the MSM reported on how many of us ALSO want to take the sons-of-bitches out, it wouldn't be so overhyped.

Barrelhse September 6, 2011 at 1:13 pm

Profanity laced?
Michele, "profanity laced" would be more like Shit, Piss, Fuck, Cunt, Cocksucker, Motherfucker, and Tits, you twat-faced peckerhead.

An_Outhouse September 6, 2011 at 1:22 pm

I am so glad he didn't say boogers, pee pee, or doodie, then. Man, they'd flip out.

I spent an idle hour over at the Beitards this morning to see how they were taking all this foderall. Hilariously they are swooning over Sarah by the carload full of sock puppets and deranged nutball me too's. She didn't quit she resigned! He really has cornered the market on the sad lost boys of the GOP. Then I had some club soda and now I feel fine.

We have been in a WAR for years. The Rightists declared their "Cultural War" on the progressive heart and soul of the country at the 1990 Repuke convention, articulated by Benito Buchanan. It's about time someone on the left called then on it. Yes, they declared the war so if that is what they want, then let's give it to 'em, both barrels. Thanks Jimmy Hoffa for calling it as it is.

I'll tell you what. When Obama started going on and on about the payroll tax cuts and unemployment benefits at the speech the other day, that crowd went dead silent. They are so damned tired of hearing about tax cuts, even tax cuts that would benefit them. Hell, the poor folks in that crowd would totally tolerate being taxed more.

Hoffa gave a helluva a speech. Barry was so out of touch with that crowd. We Michiganders pretended along with him as best we could, and they'll turn out for him, but Hoffa totally stole the show with his rousing speech. Albeit, you wouldn't and can't expect the president to do what Hoffa did; he is the president after all, but even when he did what he could do, rhetorically, it sounded so flat. He had his chance to do something very big in Detroit, and he went on-and-on about a "bipartisan" plan and then tossed a few mosels of red meat about how he wasn't going to wait for them to do something. Yeah right, Barry. That was perhaps the friendliest crowd he could ever have. Detroit gave him something north of 90% of the city's vote; the very least he could have done was gave them a proper rhetorical dinner, even if it was a lie.

Hoffa practically begged the president offering "this is your army, we are ready to march." If all we're going to be marching for is $50 billion in infrastructure out of a $300 billion jobs plan, he can fuckin' Fuhgeddaboudit, for real.

I love, just love, the conservative paintting of unions as being big and bad. They've so decimated the ranks of unionized America they make up what? 10% of the entire workforce? As if union power is even on the same level as corporate power. How they can play the victim is nothing short of amazing.
