On December 7th, 1941, the U.S. was attacked by Japan, thrusting us into World War II. That attack devastated our Pacific naval fleet, killed 2,402 people and injured thousands more. The subsequent war with Japan would cost hundreds of thousands more American lives, not to mention millions of Japanese.
Recently, we’ve been told by Ohio and national Big Labor leaders that an equally horrifying and costly event has taken place.
Witness the horror that is the freedom to choose whether you want to join a union or not. Last week, Media Trackers Ohio reported that the union group “We Are Ohio” compared Right-to-Work legislation in Michigan to Pearl Harbor.
This is all quite ironic, because yesterday a union member demonstrated that he loves sneak attacks, when he grabbed Steven Crowder from behind a sucker-punched him for daring to ask that they not tear down the tent he was volunteering in.
Of course, maybe the union protesters were only following the orders of head thug Barack Obama. After all, he told them,
“I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face.“
Seriously, there is no logical or moral argument in favor of forcing people to join unions. Unions have a tough time explaining why, if their services are so great, do they need the force of law to make people join? That’s why you see them get so frustrated and turn to ridiculous comparisons, lies, and even violence to make their case.
