What? A Union Is Sticking up for Donald Trump Now?

Saturday, November 5, 2016 17:17
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Unions hate most Republicans. Because Republican believe in free people and free markets, empowering individuals to make decisions that are best for their own families, unions tend to have a freak out. Unions depend on devaluing the individual and engaging in Marxist collectivist warfare.

So why are Unions sticking up for Donald Trump now?

Look at this mailer that’s going out to Republicans in northern Virginia, where Barbara Comstock is running for re-election as one of the few elected Republicans in the greater Washington area:


The mailer criticizes Comstock for refusing to back Trump, and was sent by A Fair & Just PAC. That PAC has a single listed expenditure, spending $10700 against Barbara Comstock.

Comstock is hated by the unions. In particular, Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 689, which represents many employees of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), which runs the DC Subway system. They’ve been gunning for her for months, desperately trying to defeat her.

And it turns out this Indigo Strategies that is working with A Fair & Just PAC is a far-left outfit that works with unions heavily. These people do not support Donald Trump, but between Trump and NeverTrump conservatives, they side with Trump.

Donald Trump has been so anti-Republican this cycle, his name is now being invoked to depress Republican turnout, trying to defeat Congressional Republicans.

    meanwhile, hillary clinton violated 18 usc 2071 when she willfully and unlawfully concealed government documents for TWO YEARS!

    Where is redstates post on THIS FACT?? Don’t bother looking through redstates posts regarding Clinton’s violations of 18 USC 2071(b) it’s not there, they REFUSE to even acknowledge the fact that hillary clintion is DISQUALIFIED FROM HOLDING ANY OFFICE UNDER THE UNITED STATES FOR WILLFULLY AND UNLAWFULLY VIOLATING 18 USC 2071(b)

    Yet the voting lines are very long. It took me over one hour in line for the first time ever when I voted the other day. Previously, voting would only take ten-twenty minutes. More are voting this time….it could be the last chance to save our country.

    “Marxist collectivist warfare”?

    Bullshit, unions simply protect employees from hazardous working environments, unscrupulous management, and being underpaid under the duress of there not being other work available.

    Do some research, read about the coal mine wars and company stores and script.
    Unions would not exist of there were not so many evil greedy money loving exploiters whose life goal is to prosper on the backs of others.

    That unions have become exploited entities, just like everything else in the united states of america Inc., is hardly a surprise and does not mean unions are “Marxist”.

    The true culprit in most of this countries problems is that everything is extreme. Few think for themselves no and most jump on the nazi fascist right bandwagon or the hedonist left bandwagon.
    The notion that everything is completely black or completely right, nothing is partially right or partially wrong.
    Unions have good things about them and bad, just like corporations that make them a necessary evil have good things about them and bad.

    Right now it seems there is a lot more bad about everything than good, but black isn’t totally good or bad and white isn’t totally good or bad. And the bad about Unions is by far not any more bad than the bad about any other element of modern society. And far more benign than many. Including our big brother work environment.
