You gotta leave it to that crack research team at the Worldnutdaily. Nothing gets passed those guys, especially Aaron Klein, who is stone cold nuts. His latest expose` catches the AFL-CIO red-handed supporting freedom and democracy. The headline screams:
Largest U.S. union behind Mideast riots?
Sordid ties to group targeting American ally fighting terrorism
You see, Klein has discovered that the AFL-CIO, the largest union in the United States, thinks it’s a good idea to have independent trade unions in other countries.
The executive council of the AFL-CIO, the nation’s largest union, has praised the role workers and trade unions are playing in the revolutions sweeping the Middle East and North Africa…
In a statement last week, the AFL-CIO praised the role of unions and workers in what it called the “popular mobilizations against corrupt, oppressive regimes in Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain and throughout the Middle East and North Africa.”
And just wait till you see what those commie pinkos supported:
The AFL-CIO statement said: “After enduring decades of repression exercised by governments with the support of the West, including the United States, the workers and people of Tunisia and Egypt have mobilized by the millions for democracy and fundamental rights.”
“The AFL-CIO and the global labor movement salute the independent trade union movements in both of these countries and support their aspirations for social justice,” the statement continued.
Democracy! Justice! Fundamental rights! Why, those leftist Nazi communist pagan demons! Their whole argument comes down to this: Some of the people protesting against the oppressive dictators we’ve supported throughout the Arab world are “Islamists” and therefore just like Osama Bin Laden. And this, without actually making it explicit, apparently means democracy is bad and we should keep supporting dictators — oh, and that anyone who thinks we shouldn’t is pro-terrorist.
Yes, this is what passes for thinking on Planet Wingnuttia.
