As the world knows, on Wednesday, an armed 88-year old deranged whacko walked into Washington DC's Holocaust Museum and shot down security guard Steven Johns.
This stupid, senseless crime is a tragedy in the fact that Mr. Johns left behind a son, a wife, as well as other family and friends who undoubtedly miss their loved one.
However, left-wing blogger Dave Johnson has taken "the ends justify the means" mentality to new and disgusting lows.
On this sycophantic blog, Johnson uses the tragic shooting to make a phony argument for the moronically-monikered EFCA by stating:
Security guards at the Holocaust Museum, members of the Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America, had tried to get protective vests from the company that employs them. The company didn't want to bother with this "cost" and wouldn't provide vests. Now one guard is dead.
Employees need to be able to have a say in their workplace. The "security" company was concerned with profits. The employees were the ones concerned with security. The company won out.
This is one more reason why we need the Employee Free Choice Act.
The problem with this insipid argument is that 1) Mr. Johns was already a union member and 2) EFCA would have done nothing to save Mr. Johns' life since he was already in a union contract.
The Orwellian Employee Free Choice Act has nothing to do with the Holocaust Museum shooting and Mr. Johnson's use of this sad event as justification for the union bailout bill is nothing more than pandering propaganda.
Mr. Johnson ought to be ashamed of himself and should apologize to Mr. John's family for using and politicizing Mr. Johns' heinous death in such a morally bankrupt way.
