Whatever George Soros is paying his minions at Media Matters, it can’t be enough to replace one’s soul. Shorter Media Bladders: Hoffa’s innocent, and Fox done it!
There’s only one problem with that theory: Hoffa actually said the offending remark. Add to that, he’s now backing it up and says he would say it again, according to the leftwingers at TPM DC.
Hoffa riled up Fox News and the right wing Monday with a Labor Day speech in Detroit in which he called Republican members of Congress “sons of bitches” and said union workers are ready to “go to war” with the tea party next year and “take out” Republicans at the ballot box.
Hoffa said he’d say the exact same words all over again.
“I would because I believe it,” he said. “They’ve declared war on us. We didn’t declare war on them, they declared war on us. We’re fighting back. The question is, who started the war?”
Over to you, Bladders. Spin away.
