Sick. Hoffa Says He Has “No Regrets” For Violent, Profanity-Laced Threatening Labor Day Speech

Teamster leader Jimmy Hoffa says he would say it all again if he could.
The union leader defended his violent profanity-laced threatening Labor Day speech on Monday.

Sick. He blamed his awful rhetoric on conservatives.
TPM reported, via Weasel Zippers:

Teamsters union president James Hoffa would say it all again if he could, he told TPM Monday.

Hoffa riled up Fox News and the right wing Monday with a Labor Day speech in Detroit in which he called Republican members of Congress “sons of bitches” and said union workers are ready to “go to war” with the tea party next year and “take out” Republicans at the ballot box.

Hoffa said he’d say the exact same words all over again.

“I would because I believe it,” he said. “They’ve declared war on us. We didn’t declare war on them, they declared war on us. We’re fighting back. The question is, who started the war?”

The speech came shortly before President Obama took the stage in Detroit — and Hoffa’s remarks certainly overshadowed Obama’s on Fox. But the Teamsters chief said he was just matching fired-up conservative rhetoric when it comes to organized labor and Obama with some fired-up rhetoric of his own.
