Democratic Congressman: Time for unions to get "bloody"

If a Republican had said this, all heck would break loose.

A Democratic Congressman from Massachusetts is raising the stakes in the nation’s fight over the future of public employee unions, saying emails aren’t enough to show support and that it is time to “get a little bloody.”
“I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an email to get you going. Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary,” Rep. Mike Capuano (D-Ma.) told a crowd in Boston on Tuesday rallying in solidarity for Wisconsin union members.
Capuano’s comments come at a time when there is heightened sensitivity to violent rhetoric in the wake of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ (D-Az.) shooting in January. . . .

Markie Marxist sez: "When my Commiecrat compadres say something that sounds violent, it's not. It's just a metaphor. Only those crazy right-wingers mean violence when they talk about violence. For us, violence just a metaphorical thing. That's our story and we're sticking to it. Our Marxist amigos in the media will back us on it."
