Union Bashing Union Members by Robert Wesolowski
I was on the treadmill today while I watched the puddin heads on Fox News as they bashed, scorned, mocked and chortled at the miserable, unwashed, laborers in America who belong to unions. Unions, they said, only protect the lazy, the ignorant, the parasites in the American work force. They said those Wisconsin union boobs ruined the state. They said gubbiment cannot afford to operate because of the huge wages and benefits awarded to those union suckers.
In fact, Rush Limbaugh (yeah, the fat guy) said, "We are on the side of the Wisconsin protestors or we are on the side of our country." Limbaugh is on the side of the anti-union forces. Sean Hannity often invites guests who are viciously critical of union members.
As I walked on the treadmill, I wondered if any Fox News announcers are members of a union.
Well. Well Well.
According to AFTRA (American Federation Television and Radio Artists union), some announcers at Fox News are union members. B.S. O'Reilly, Shame Hannity, Mush Limbaugh, Sister Glenn Beck, Sister Sarah Palin, and Master Witch Ann Coulter are all union members of AFTRA which is an affiliate of AFL-CIO union.
I nearly fell off my chair here in front of my computer. Do you really believe those bashers are union members? O'Reilly actually said, "...I am a member of a union, AFTRA, and when I was working at 'Inside Edition' some years ago, the King World company tried to renege on pension benefits." He said, "AFTRA took them to court and the case was settled."
Apparently, the union members at Fox News will say and read any kind of mush if they get paid to do it.
