American unions have a long and clear history of anti-Americanism. Virtually since their inception unions have been run by either Communists or the Mafia. But now that is changing for the worse. While both of these plagues on our working people have been countered in recent years, the reigns of control of unions have apparently been handed off to a new even more virulent strain of anti-Americanism: Islam.
Union anti-Americanism showed itself in 1943 when, during the height a World War whose outcome was very much in doubt, United Auto Workers union head thug Tom Di Lorenzo had no qualms about admitting, “Our policy is not to win the war at any cost.”
On July 25, the anti-American leaders of the United Steel Workers local 8751 president Steven Kirschbaum and his vice president Steven Gillis proudly attended an Al Quds event in Boston. It is instructive to note that as per a laudatory article in the “Workers World” a Communist newspaper, USW 8751 was founded by Communists.
These gatherings are anti-Semitic, anti-American hate festivals where calls for murdering Jews are regularly heard.
During a subsequent public rally held in Boston on August 4th there were chants of support for the Palestinian Intifada which were coordinated and lead by Kirschbaum as his mob of America haters marched along Boylston Street.
Among the chants directed by the anti-American Kirschbaum and Gillis was American Islam’s new favorite, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!” which is a call for murdering every single Jew in Israel.
By organizing this anti-American rally these two leaders of a bus drivers’ union have shown solidarity with and encouraged Islamic thugs who blow up busses, killing passengers and drivers alike in Israel.
Rallies like these are exactly the kind of signal the 7th century savages of Islam are looking for to start carrying out ISIS threats to bring their war against Israel to the streets of America. Nevertheless, these union thugs – one possibly Jewish himself – don’t care about anything but lining their own pockets.
Those who still hold the naïve notion that unions represent the epitome of America’s patriotic working men and women shouldn’t hold their breath waiting for the national USW structure to censure Kirschbaum and Gillis. The unions of today make no pretense about siding with America’s enemy. They are increasingly influenced by the far more dangerous Islamist.
Di Lorenzo’s words were, “Our policy is not to win the war at any cost.” Today’s union thugs are saying, “Our policy is not to win the war.”
