Hmm… AFL-CIO President Suddenly Remembers Witnessing Racist Attacks Against Black Caucus Members?
Yesterday, when confronted by Andrew Breitbart about the bogus racist charges by Black Caucus members, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said he personally witnessed the spitting (didn’t happen) and name-calling (didn’t happen) on March 20 in Washington DC.
Obama lapdog AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka
Trumka was protesting in Pennsylvania on March 19th, the day before the reported racial attack in Washington DC.
Big day for labor news in Philadelphia today. Richard Trumka, the former Pennsylvania coal miner and Villanova law school grad, who heads the nation’s largest labor federation, will be at two rallies. At 10:15 a.m., he’ll be outside of Temple University hospital in support of 1,500 nurses and professionals who will deliver a strike notice to the hospital.
Then at 11:45 a.m., he’ll switch gears and talk about banking at Paine Plaza, which is essentially at 15th and JFK Blvd. That’s where Bank of America has an office and it’s also the place where Trumka will urge banks to start lending money, so that businesses can grow and create jobs. The bank event will be replicated in 200 places across the country.
Here’s video from his March 19th protest in Pennsylvania.
Then, the following week he said he saw Republican Congressman encouraging the tea party patriots outside of the US Capitol on Sunday March 21.
This is from his statement released on March 25:
But the threats and the violence being directed at elected officials that had the courage to take a stand represent an ugly appeal to fear and division. And they come at a dangerous cost.
When I was at the Capitol on Sunday, I saw Republican lawmakers come out onto balconies and egg on hateful crowds like giddy teenagers, waving signs and chanting to fire up the protestors. They set the foundation for a dangerous climate, and they must take the lead in stopping it.
If he witnessed Black Caucus members being spit on and called the n-word as he claimed yesterday when he was confronted by Andrew Breitbart, you’d think it would have made it in his March 25th statement.
Or, maybe this big labor lib is lying?
Was he even in Washington DC on March 20th? Who knows.
