    Woah! Radical AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka is calling for the left to take control over private industry.

    Can we call them “socialists” yet?

    “We need to fundamentally restructure our economy and re-establish popular control over the private corporations.”

    The AFL-CIO blog reported:

    With the economy continuing to stagger and job creation not moving quickly, “working people are justifiably angry and frustrated” as they approach the Nov. 2 elections, says AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.

    Trumka and Working America Executive Director Karen Nussbaum, New York Times columnist Bob Herbert, Eric Alterman, journalist and senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, and moderator Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher of the Nation, led a panel discussion—Which Way for the Working Class? Elections 2010 and Beyond—Friday afternoon in New York City.

    More than 400 people attended the event at the Great Hall at Cooper Union.

    Trumka said it is vital to channel working-class anger away from Fox News and Tea Party extremists who are delivering

    a cynical, deeply dishonest and incoherent message—that big government is somehow to blame for the current crisis that the budget deficit will eat our children, and that illegal immigrants took all the good jobs.

    However, he added, “The good news is they haven’t bought into right-wing ideology. They are just confused about who to blame.” But:

    We have to offer working people something other than the dead-end choice between the failed agenda of greed and the voices of hate and division and violence.

    …In the short term, said Trumka, the labor movement has to “recapture the moment and take control of the national conversation.” Building for the future,

    we need to fundamentally restructure our economy and re-establish popular control over the private corporations which have distorted our economy and hijacked our government. That’s a long-term job, but one we should start now.

    I commend them for being honest about their Marxist intentions.

    What is this “re-establish” he’s speaking about?
    Labor unions/Mafia, Black Panther thugs, Maoists and George Soros....
    What a Regime.......
    BTW
    Isn't Trumka one Saddam Hussein’s sons? The one that got away, you know the rape rooms. Maybe, if we're lucky he'll pay a visit to Hoffa.

    Does anyone still doubt that the labor unions were one of the first organizations taken over by the Communists?

    It's dumbass union folks who buy such drivel. And they wonder why their numbers have shrunk so in recent times.

    Forrest Gump's momma had it right when it comes to stupid.
