The other riots: Dem lawmaker urges unions to get out on the streets and get bloody
Democrats have been warning about possible incendiary rhetoric since Gabrielle Giffords was shot in Tucson, Arizona along with 13 others, 6 of whom died. Too bad they don't spend a lot of time listending to themselves. Via Hill:
Sometimes it's necessary to get out on the streets and "get a little bloody," a Massachusetts Democrat said Tuesday in reference to labor battles in Wisconsin.
Rep. Michael Capuano (D-Mass.) fired up a group of union members in Boston with a speech urging them to work down in the trenches to fend off limits to workers' rights like those proposed in Wisconsin.
"I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an email to get you going," Capuano said, according to the Dorchester Reporter. "Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary."
