Jimmy Hoffa Defends Violent Profanity-Laced Speech: “We Didn’t Start This War – The Right-Wing Did”
Jimmy Hoffa doubled-down today after his violent profanity-laced threatening Labor Day speech in Detroit yesterday. Hoffa says his comments “echo the anger and frustration of American workers who are under attack by corporate-funded politicians who want to destroy the middle class.”
Yesterday Hoffa told fellow union members, “Let’s take the sons-a-bitches out.”
(WASHINGTON) – Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa today said he stands by his criticism of corporate-funded conservative politicians who are out to destroy the middle class.
“We didn’t start this war – the right wing did. My comments on Labor Day in Detroit echo the anger and frustration of American workers who are under attack by corporate-funded politicians who want to destroy the middle class,” Hoffa said. “We’re tired of seeing good-paying jobs shipped overseas. This fight is about the economy, it’s about jobs and it’s about rebuilding America. As I said yesterday in Detroit, we all have to vote in order to take these anti-worker politicians out of office.”
