    Fox Doctors Hoffa Speech To Fabricate Call For Violence
    September 05, 2011 4:55 pm ET by Matt Gertz

    Right-wing bloggers misled by dishonest Fox News video editing are attacking Teamsters President James Hoffa, Jr. for supposedly urging violence against Tea Party activists during a Labor Day speech. Conservatives are also attacking President Obama, who appeared at the event, for "sanctioning violence against fellow Americans" by failing to denounce Hoffa. But fuller context included in other Fox segments makes clear that Hoffa wasn't calling for violence but was actually urging the crowd to vote out Republican members of Congress.

    During the segment that the bloggers have latched onto, Fox edited out the bolded portion of Hoffa's comments:

    HOFFA: Everybody here's got to vote. If we go back and keep the eye on the prize, let's take these son of a bitches out and give America back to America where we belong! Thank you very much!

    In an initial report on Hoffa's speech at 1 p.m. on Fox News, Ed Henry reported that Hoffa said that "we'll remember in November who's with the working people" and "said of the Tea Party and of Republicans, 'let's take these sons of bitches out.'"



    Henry made clear during that segment that Hoffa's comments were references to voting out Republican members of Congress, not to violence. And roughly 20 minutes later, he explained on Twitter that the "full quote" of the "take these son of a bitches out" comment is "Everybody here's got to vote. If we go back & keep the eye on the prize, let's take these sons of bitches out":



    But in a second segment that ran at roughly the same time as Henry's tweet, Fox News dishonestly edited the speech in the manner seen above. Andrew Breitbart's Big sites, Real Clear Politics, The Daily Caller, the Media Research Center, and the Drudge Report have all highlighted that footage, using it to condemn "the violence emanating from union thug bosses" and demand that Obama "denounce" the comments.

    It's GREAT that you Liberals are having to come out and defend these IDIOTS every 2 minutes.

    Here's what Jimmy Hoffa said today--in front of a largely union crowd--aka Obama fainters--

    Cranking up the anti-Tea Party rhetoric, Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa called on workers to "take these son-of-a-bitches out" as he warmed up a crowd Monday in Detroit ahead of President Obama's Labor Day speech.



    WHITE HOUSE LABOR EVENTS TURN UGLY - Teamsters - Fox Nation

    It's on video too.

    I think I remember another perfectly pronounced speech regarding civil discourse from Obama?---:lol::lol:

    The video on FOX was apparently doctored. Hoffa really threw teddy bears to the children in the audience, and floated across the stage, shooting rainbows out of his ass, praising Obama, who flew by on a magical unicorn.
