Yawn: Junior Hoffa Likens GOP to Pol Pot

Posted by on Sep 13, 2012 at 9:24 pm

I expected this last week after the deluge of Hitler references at the DNC. But I guess they’re leaving the Pol Pot nonsense to this slimy thug.

Teamsters President James Hoffa on Thursday compared the Republican Party to genocidal Cambodian leader Pol Pot and likened the tea party to the John Birch Society.

In remarks before the National Press Club, the fiery Detroit-born leader in his fourth term of running the 1.4-million member union also said the future of organized labor is at stake.

He said the GOP at its national convention in Tampa, Fla., two weeks ago didn’t talk about “what they really believe in” or highlight former leaders like President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

“The Republicans are rewriting history,” Hoffa said, saying the party is ignoring Bush’s eight years in office. “There is no eight years. There was no recession. There were no wars. Nothing every happened during those eight years.”

The GOP wants to suggest “history began” with President Barack Obama and ignores all of the problems before 2009. “We’re starting from Day One. It’s like Pol Pot — basically start the Day One, the new calendars.”

Pol Pot led the Khmer Rouge which was responsible for the deaths of about 2 million people in Cambodia.

Hoffa said the GOP has become “the far, far right.”

He compared the tea party to the John Birch Society, the radical anti-Communist group that opposed civil rights legislation and wants to dismantle the Federal Reserve System and exit the United Nations.

“New John Birch Society — now it’s called the tea party but it’s basically again to go to a far-off place and roll the clock back to about 1890,” Hoffa said.

Now he doesn’t really believe any of this nonsense, but they know most of the imbecile base of the party does, and they east this stuff up. They want to believe, and that’s all that matters.

    Obviously this guy have no clue what he talking about! F
    1. Pol Pot is a Marxist/ Socialist/ Communist, equal everything from working, starving people, everyone wearing the same black clothin. Now that sound more like what this administration and their teamster/ union leader!?
    2. Like Pol Pot the teamster gets to fatten their belly, while the little people whom are against them are starving and dying.
    3. Like Pol Pot the teamster claim to power is through the ignorance, students and the desperate with their smooth talk and promises

    And in the end these people that put them in people will come to regret their action, when one by one they are being elimated for the younger and more naive followers,which lead to the genocide we all know as the Khmer Rough Killing Field!!!
    And if we don’t fight back and change these false Hope and Change, we will be this next generation of victims!! I know because I lived through it to tell about it!

    Stand up America and take your country back! Before we’ll be just another page in a History book!
