Mitt Romney To Fellow Plutocrats: Tell Peasant Employees They Will Get Fired If They Vote For Obama

by Jesse Taylor

Recently, numerous big Republican employers who’ve done incredibly well over the past four years have started to threaten their employees with layoffs if Barack Obama is reelected, because they’d logically give up billions of dollars to spite a black dude. Whether with chain letters, “voter information packets,” or just straight-up office e-mail blasts, conservative employers are all of a sudden super freaked out about the dire consequences of not electing empty shell corporation Mitt Romney.

Why, though? Well, maybe because of how, during a call with the National Federation of Independent Businesses (skip to 26:44), Mittens von Glovenstein asked them to!

Von Glovenstein sez:

I hope you make it very clear to your employees what you believe is in the best interest of your enterprise and therefore their job and their future in the upcoming elections. And whether you agree with me or you agree with President Obama, or whatever your political view, I hope, I hope you pass those along to your employees.

So, now that Mitt has encouraged your employer to mercilessly threaten your job should he not get his way, and employers are following his lead, how will this play out after the election is over if Obama wins?

Will we see an Atlas Shrugged-style escape to the barren wastelands of the American West on a high-speed train? Hahaha, no, this isn’t fiction, we don’t have high speed trains anywhere but in libtard enclaves.

Will Mitt Romney pick up his trap shooting gun and lead an armed revolution against America’s socialized workplaces? Well, maybe, if all the guns these dickbags owned weren’t non-functional collector’s pieces.

Or will these guys do what they’ve done the past few decades, and grouse pointlessly on any network that will have them about how government is destroying their business as their latest insanely high earnings ironically scroll by on the ticker below them? Yes, that. Definitely.

It is theoretically possible that we should be worried about billionaires who have spent their entire lives working to earn as much money as humanly possible in the greatest economy the world has ever known stopping that because of a slight tax hike back to ’90s levels. It is just remarkably, terribly unlikely that they would ever do such a horrifically stupid thing. Plus, if they shut down, America’s employees will remain woefully unterrorized by their employer’s insane, irrational demands, and that would be a national tragedy.

And on the day after the election they get fired anyway just because business owners like firing people.

MegPasadena October 18, 2012 at 1:43 pm

The funny thing is one of the pussies actually wrote an almost identical letter to his employees in '08 and see, he still hasn't gone to retirement yet. The barking dogs don't bite.

Thnk god its perfectly legal to threaten your employees with termination if they dont vote the way you want t… oh wait….

Isn't there a way to embed the video so that it's already queued up to the incriminating remarks, so we don't have to listen to 28 minutes of Romney's stump-speech pablum to a right-wing economic group that is the source of one of those "independant" reports that claims that Romney's tax plan seems legit, in order to get to it?

Motherfuckers.

LibertyLover October 18, 2012 at 10:29 am

It's so inconvenient to the rich that the general public has the vote in the first place. It would be so much easier if only people that make over $1 million a year could vote. Democracy for the masses is so messy. They have to take the additional step of blackmailing their employees to donating to campaigns they wouldn't normally support.

Makes me long for the days of the guillotine and eating "cake" in France.

Oblios_Cap October 18, 2012 at 10:33 am

Never fear! This is why we still have the electoral college!
I live in a red state that has already been determined to be “for Mitt”, so any other vote of mine is useless. At least it allows me to vote for a 3rd party. (Green) with out feeling like a traitor, right?

SayItWithWookies October 18, 2012 at 10:32 am

Two paths lie before our nation's business leaders: in one of the, the economy gets better but they lay off workers and leave orders unfulfilled because they have to pay 3% more in taxes if they make more than a quarter of a million dollars a year. In the other, everyone gets laid off, we go to war with Iran, and destitution and misery follow, but they pay the same in taxes that they did this year. I only hope they choose wisely.

THE MOAR YOU KNOW!

Boojum October 18, 2012 at 10:50 am

There really isn't any question but that this is criminal conduct, for which both Romney and every employer who participated in this call and then made such threats could be charged with conspiracy to commit election fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 371 and 42 U.S.C. § 1973i(b) and (c). This is a conspiracy for the purpose of knowingly and willfully paying and offering to pay voters for voting in the general election to secure the election of preferred candidates for elective office. They could also be charged with aiding and abetting election fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2 and 42 U.S.C. § 1973i(b) and (c) for paying and offering to pay voters on election day.

[W]hile a solicitation to enter into an agreement arguably crosses the sometimes hazy line distinguishing conduct from pure speech, such a solicitation, even though it may have an impact in the political arena, remains in essence an invitation to engage in an illegal exchange for private profit, and may properly be prohibited. See Hoffman Estates v. Flipside, Hoffman Estates, Inc., 455 U.S. 489, 496 (1982); Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corp. v. Public Service Comm'n, 447 U.S. 557, 563-564 (1980); Pittsburgh Press Co. v. Human Relations Comm'n, 413 U.S. 376, 388 (1973).

Brown v. Hartlage, 456 U.S. 45, 102 S. Ct. 1523, 71 L. Ed. 2d 732, 1982 U.S. LEXIS 92, 50 U.S.L.W. 4359 (1982)

LesBontemps October 18, 2012 at 10:59 am

Yeah, good luck with that law stuff — just remember who wrote the laws. Me, I'm going with guillotines as the appropriate redress.

Boojum October 18, 2012 at 11:07 am

I'm good with guillotines, but we need a REASON to use them. Due process and all. Then shorten them.

LesBontemps October 18, 2012 at 11:14 am

Pffft. I'm already giving them all the process that's due.

Huh? Who deleted what?

eggsacklywright October 18, 2012 at 11:06 am

If only we had some sort of means to prosecute such things. Shame, it is.

Boojum October 18, 2012 at 11:10 am

Yes, some sort of … "prosecutor" will do until we come up with a better word. And a, let's just call it "legal system" with people in charge who are called "moderators"…no, "judges" would be better.

SayItWithWookies October 18, 2012 at 11:10 am

I think Romney himself skirts any legal issues because he never instructs the other participants to tell their employees who to vote for (though the implication is obvious), only that they should think about how their vote will impact their likely job prospects.

And the two examples I've seen of business owners issuing statements to their employees also avoided saying who they should vote for — though I think a pretty good case could be made for Obama's re-election creating a better climate for business than a Romney administration would, as standards of living and manufacturing jobs historically do better under Democratic administrations, which means it takes a really short-sighted businessman to root for Mitt.

Boojum October 18, 2012 at 11:12 am

You know, the law is an ass, but issues of motive and intent are generally left for the jury. I feel quite sure that there is enough here for an indictment and a trial, with the jury to determine if their obvious intent was obvious enough. Pick the right venue, and Tagg can go visit Mittens in the pokey for a long, long time.

lulzmonger October 18, 2012 at 10:36 pm

All that "18 U.S.C. § 371 and 42 U.S.C. § 1973i(b) and (c)" stuff is soooo 20th Century!

Citizens United = money is speech.
First Amendment = no law abridging freedom of speech.

Magog bless the United States Of Clusterfuck!

That whole high speed train thing: without ever having actually read her silly book, I'm guessing Ayn Rand was afraid of flying.

widestanceromance October 18, 2012 at 11:13 am

It was that darn collective flying she did not care for, what with all the other passengers flying on her dime.

Dagny Taggart crashed her plane into Galt's Gulch. You might be onto something…

Let the real class war begin. It's on. Fire everyone and run your shitty little companies with prison labor. Just make sure you've got a panic room.

Also please note the 47% video also shows Romney hoping for a Libya like tragedy to exploit and he promises to do so to the fullest extent of his evil powers.

Soooo how are these guys actual successful bidness menz, with so little comprehension of how bidness, um, works?

1) Like it or not, you need people to run your bidness. It's time consuming and expensive to replace them. Turn over can also piss off your customers.

2) "The Evil, Kenyan, Muslin Usurper won" isn't considered misconduct on the part of your employees. Enjoy paying all their unemployment. Not to mention fending off lawsuits, etc.

Lay them off if Obama wins??? I'm telling my employees I'm going to DROWN THEM if Obama wins!

A kinder, gentler boss would just pass around some tainted koolaid.

pdiddycornchips October 18, 2012 at 11:11 am

This video should be the lead story on every news broadcast. It won't be of course. I'm willing to bet we'll hear much more about Michelle clapping than we will about Romney's imperial threats

On November 7, after BHO is re-elected, they all need to do their descendants a giant favor and beat the coming increase in the estate tax rates by jumping off the edge of the nearest cliff. After all tax planning is for 1%ers.

I call bullshit.

Most American companies would collapse if they fired all their liberals.

After all, who's going to do all the work? Conservatives?

HAHAHAHAHAH.

Another fine example of how the LDS concept of "Lying for the Lord" can be extended efficiently into politics. Yay.

"I urge everyone in my fiefdom to vote for Romney, so that government of the Billionaires, by the Billionaires, and for the Billionaires shall not perish from this earth…."

Is it legal to intimidate anyone let alone your employees regarding voting?

lulzmonger October 18, 2012 at 10:48 pm

I'm shocked, SHOCKED I SAY, that an autocratic psychopath would engage in such low-down shenannigans!

Conversely, I suspect there are now more than a few anonymous missives wending their merry way to these Captains Of Industry reminding them of the ongoing existence of "Second Amendment remedies" to any such experiments in junta-style assholery.

ttommyunger October 18, 2012 at 11:45 pm

A dangerous tactic in a Country with the Secret Ballot. I would vote the other way just to rub salt in the boss' ass.
