Hoffa Urges Revolution, But Only At Fox News

Abby Zimet

In a fiery Labor Day speech in Detroit, Teamsters' president James Hoffa called on workers to take the country back by voting out the GOP and Tea Party, urging, "Let's take these sons of bitches out." Of course right-wingers who regularly stoop to the basest ugliness freaked out at his "uncivil rhetoric," even as Fox News wasted no time gleefully editing the remarks to make it sound like he was calling for violence, not voting. These guys must live for these opportunities. Video.
