Union Fires Stagehand Preparing Obama Event For Wearing Clothing Honoring USS George H.W. Bush

October 23, 2010

The firing of Juan Williams by government-funded liberal propagandist NPR as a demonstration of leftwing intolerance is getting a lot of attention.

But liberal intolerance is all around us.  It crawls around this country like maggots crawling around a rotting carcass.

How about this exhibition of liberal “tolerance”: A union fired one of its own for wearing a hat and sweatshirt bearing the name “Bush” as the stagehand was working to prepare for an Obama rally at a university.  Which is to say we’ve got quite an intolerance trifecta going on: union intolerance, Obama intolerance and university intolerance all at once.

Here’s the video of KTLA Channel 5 reporting on the firing of Duane Hammond.  Here’s the story from KTLA’s site.

The man was wearing the cap and sweatshirt honoring the USS George H.W. Bush, CVN 77, the aircraft carrier which his Navy son was serving upon.

He wasn’t trying to make any political statements.  The man was just proud of his son for serving his country.  And he wasn’t willing to dishonor his son’s service by treating the U.S.S. George H.W. Bush as though it merited shame.

So I guess it’s not just rabid frothing-at-the-mouth liberal intolerance of the name of Bush, but also of the United States Navy and of our men and women who serve their country, too.

And there’s plenty of flat-out un-American indifference to the military going on in the Democrat Party, too.  Recent case in point: Democrat Congressman Jim Moran doesn’t think that military service is worthy of the term “public service.” Democrat Moran thinks all those heroes buried six feet under at Arlington National Cemetery were just a bunch of self-centered warmongers.

Just remember, if you actually want “tolerance,” you damn well better vote out every single Democrat.  Because you’ve got to go to North Korea to find more intolerant people than American liberals.

We’ve got a chance to vote these cockroaches off the island on November 2.  Don’t pass it up.
