Hoffa Predicts 'Civil War' in Michigan

Union man James Hoffa is just taking his cues from the state’s Democrats. Or maybe he’s pulling their strings.

Jimmy Hoffa, president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, said Tuesday he expects Michigan unions and lawmakers to break out into “civil war” after the state legislature passed right-to-work bills that would weaken unions’ power. “This is just the first round of a battle that’s going to divide this state. We’re going to have a civil war,” Hoffa said on CNN’s “Newsroom.”

Hoffa also tried his hand at irony.

“What they’re doing is basically betraying democracy,” he told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin. “If there’s any question here, let’s put it on the ballot and let the people of Michigan decide what’s good for Michigan.”

You mean, like the Democrats do, never?

Unions need to be banned from government, period, and severely curtailed in the private sector. They’re bankrupting companies, cities and states and are becoming a threat to basic law and order.
