Dem lawmaker on labor protests: 'Get a little bloody when necessary'

Quote:
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."



More and more bad rhetoric that is being used in the fight between taxpayers and the Democrats and their allies the Public Service Union's they are trying to protect. I hope the HOR censors Mr Capuano for his bad response. We will see if the Main Stream Media carries this today and condemns him like the tried to do in the Gifford's shooting to the right.

Well , they hold the final cards ... Strikes unrest and violence . Prepare for it ...especially if you live in concentrated areas and are reliant on unionized services. Unions really do have the ability to stop the country.. Obama knows it ,Rhambo Knows it ,Trumka knows it ,SEIU knows it... and so do we.

And here I thought in the aftermath of Tuscon we were supposed to refrain from using language that could incite violence in those that are supposedly less stable?

between taxpayers and the Democrats

This is currently a political battle between Republican Lawmakers and Democrat Lawmakers. Both sides are Lawmakers and both have taken positions.

It's also a back room battle between people with a lot of money and people with a large union membership.

Between the two levels I believe that money will end up talking the loudest. There is a very large resource funding the Republicans.

That probably means that the Republicans will win this one.

But it does not mean it will be successful in future elections.

We'll see how it impacts the middle class in the 2012 and 2014 elections.

And he was correctly fired within hours. Has Rep. Capuano been disciplined in any way? (slaps head) Of course not, he's a democrat.

No need to shout. To me, "getting bloody" does not limit anything, including deadly violence.

You are rambling. Read the answer that I gave, try to understand the question and my answer. by the way, the Wisconsin unions agreed to give backs, but the Governor has another agenda, or had you not noticed. Get a grip.

Literally, of course not. Metaphorically, that's a different thing. It was a bad choice of words on his part - if he had said "get out on the streets and get your hands dirty", I doubt this would be an issue.

I did not mean it that way. I was trying to emphasise the point. My error. I agree about the violence part, although I have had it used on me during strikes.

Minor point, but the title's a tad misleading. IMHO, it should read Dem Lawmaker To Unions - Get Bloody or Dem Lawmaker Says "Get Bloody" To Unions

With all due respect, both of you are completely missing the point here. Yes, there have been and always will be heated debates among legislators, regardless of political affiliation and stances as well as arguments w/union heads. However, in the wake of last month's shooting in Tuscon, where 6 people were killed (including a 9-year old girl) because of one's 3 to 4 year vendetta against Rep. Giffords; is it really a good idea to use such language?

It's almost similar to somebody saying, "Let's smash an airplane on someone's home." post-9/11. Side note: somebody attempted to do that near the White House (w/a single-engined Cessna) during the Clinton Administration.

Quoting windy95 (Thread starter):
We will see if the Main Stream Media carries this today and condemns him like the tried to do in the Gifford's shooting to the right.

Which quickly fell apart when it was discovered that the shooter's vendetta against Giffords PREDATED the Tea Party movement and was well before anyone outside of Alaska even heard of Sarah Palin.

BTW, The Boston Herald DID pick up the story this morning in which Rep. Capuano now regretted his remarks:
http://www.bostonherald.com/news/politics/view.bg?articleid=1318955
Exerpt (1st two paragraphs):
U.S. Rep. Michael Capuano expressed regret Wednesday for his choice of words at a Tuesday rally to support Wisconsin workers, after national and local Republicans pounced on him for “over-the-top and inflammatory rhetoric.”

“Congressman Mike Capuano must have lost the memo from President Obama and Democratic leaders who were demanding more civility in our political discourse and a toning down of incendiary rhetoric after the massacre in Tucson on January 8,” the Massachusetts Republican Party wrote in a Wednesday statement. “Yesterday, at a rally on Beacon Hill, Capuano couldn’t resist the urge to stir up a crowd of union members with a call for blood in the pursuit and protection of their political agenda.”


It's too bad that Mass. is only losing ONE Congressional seat during the upcoming redistricting process.

No, because this guy is an unknown outside of Massachusetts.

You didn't post a source for this quote, but I suspect it's not from a well known source (unless it's Fox News), but rather a source that tries to dig up anything it can possibly find to make the false equivalency that Democrats occasionally cross the line that Republicans cross daily.

I can see your point. I was not advocating violence. When I said it "depends", I meant, when someone uses violence against you, you tend to defend yourself. Violence does occur on picket lines, during demonstrations etc.
