California’s Brown Tells Unions to ‘Attack’ His GOP Opponent

You couldn’t get any better proof that unions are little else but hatchet men for the Democrat Party than Jerry Brown’s recent visit to a labor group meeting in California this week.

At a meeting of the Laborers’ International Union of North America in Sacramento, Brown gave marching orders to the unions in his race for the Democratic nomination for California Governor. He wanted them to “attack” the GOP for him.

“We’re going to attack whenever we can, but I’d rather have you attack. I’d rather be the nice guy in this race. We’ll leave [the attacks] to … the Democratic Party and others.”

That’s a pretty cynical campaign, isn’t it? Brown hopes to unleash the “attack” dogs of the unions in his favor, but expects to stand clear of the mud flying so as to appear untarnished… yet HE’S the guy that ordered the mud to fly in the first place?

Jerry Brown may think the voters are stupid but let’s hope they disabuse him of that notion.

Still, it usually goes without saying that the unions are partisan, vicious, and unprincipled in the service of Democrats. They understand that Democrats are their lapdogs, so who wouldn’t expect them to come to Brown’s aid?

The cure for some of this is, of course, eliminating public employees unions so that all that money spent on politicians never gets spent in the first place. The incestuous relationship between campaign contribution greedy Democrats and un-democratic public employees unions must end.
