AFL-CIO Boss Says You're Not a 'Real American' Unless You Support Pelosicare

The AFL-CIO's 'narcissistic, lazy, self-indulgent new boss' Richard Trumka held a rally yesterday afternoon at the AFL-CIO's multi-million dollar headquarters to give a speech about health care.

During the video (see below), Trumka aligned himself with today's neo-socialists (aka "progressives"), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and calling for a "robust" public option (that slippery slope to socialized medicine in three to five years).

While that, in itself is not all that surprising given the AFL-CIO's rush to the left since the 1995 ascendency of DSA-member John Sweeney to labor's top spot, what is rather surprising is Trumka's comment toward the end when he said [at 2:15]:

"Let's go let (inaudible) hear the voices of the real American people...people who stand for real reform."

So, let's get this straight, Mr. Trumka, Americans aren't what you consider "real Americans" unless they support a government take over of health care? Are these the same unreal Americans who "cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them"? [Ooops...wrong 'progressive.']
