Ken Blackwell Cheaply Implies Unions Are Terrorists
In his struggle to stay even borderline relevant, Ken Blackwell is up to his same old dirty tricks. Normally I wouldn’t bother, but I just want to make sure you're warned about just how crazy he is next time you pass him on the street.
Blackwell has posted his latest column, and it has the rather inflammatory title “Terrorists With Union Cards?” (Google it, I’m not linking.)
So what link between unions and terrorist did Blackwell uncover? Well, none. He just used to painfully obvious juxtaposition to try and slyly vilify the working class.
It's as if this administration requires that any assailant be a certified, indisputably confirmed member of Al Qaeda. If they are not clearly linked to, and trained by Al Qaeda, the Obama administration is unwilling to call them terrorists.
Do they have to have a Terrorists Union card? The Obama administration seems to be unaware of the new world of the Internet. Nidal Hasan exchanged emails with Anwar al-Awlaki, the radical Muslim cleric holed up in Yemen. So far as we know, Hasan never visited Awlaki (although they had attended the same Northern Virginia mosque, apparently.)
So remember this the next time you see Ken Blackwell walking down the street: Don’t make eye contact, and contact the authorities as soon as it’s safe.
