Democrat State Representative Douglas Geiss Stated “There Will Be Blood” Debating ‘Right to Work’ on Michigan House Floor …
What every happened to tolerance from the LEFT? I thought Democrats were for choice.
Democrat State Representative Douglas Geiss said, “There will be Blood” if the ’Right to Work’ law was passed during the debate on the Michigan House floor. Really? A Democrat state elected official is predicting and in many respects calling for violence if Michigan workers are not provided freedom of choice? Geiss went on to say that he wishes we had not gone here. Hmm, You mean providing “ALL” workers the right to choose whether they want or do not want to belong to a union? That seems a lot more American than threatening violence if you do not get your way.
“There will be blood,” State Representative Douglas Geiss threatened from the floor of the Michigan House of Representatives today as the body debated legislation that would make Michigan the nation’s 24th right to work state.
“I really wish we had not gone here,” Geiss continued. “It is the leadership in this house that has led us here. The same leadership that tried to throw a bomb right on election day, leading to a member switching parties, and came in at the 11th hour with a gotcha bill. For that, I do not see solace, I do not see peace.”
Sadly, thanks to Geiss’s grandstanding and prediction of no peace … there was none yesterday as out of control union thugs threatened and physically harmed those who dare have an alternative opinion.
House Democrats also tweeted, “There will be Blood”. It was then taken down but not before it was captured for all time.
As reported at Weasel Zippersvia the Washington Examiner, The Obama White House refused to condemn the “there will be blood” comments. Of course not, how could Obama, so beholden to the unions possibly condemn any Democrat standing for union labor no matter if there was threats or not. Instead, they make excuses.
President Obama’s spokesman cited the ambiguity of the statement, “there will be blood,” as he avoided condemning the remark made by a Michigan Democrat who opposes the imminent state’s right-to-work legislation.
“The president believes in debate that’s civil,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said today. “I haven’t seen those comments and I’m not sure that they mean what some would interpret them to mean. I just haven’t seen them.”
Update I: The MI House has passed the right-to-work law, 58-51.
