Anger over ‘economic inequality’ in America?

CAJ–Sounds like the standard Alinsky-esque “sit down and shut up” message. Unions are more than a little eager for Congress to pass amnesty.

AFL-CIO Leader Sees Anger as Threat To Democracy

By Dunstan Prial

AFL-CIO President Richard L. Trumka believes economic inequality is fueling a raging anger in America. And if left unchecked that anger could threaten the democratic principles on which this country was founded.

Trumka is scheduled to deliver a provocative speech tonight at Harvard University sharply critical of Wall Street banks and what he views as a culture of greed fostered by bankers and politicians joined by the same agenda.

In excerpts obtained by the FOX Business Network, the labor leader expresses his belief that U.S. economic policy for a generation has created a wide rift in American society. On one side are the “economic elites,” and on the other “working people.”

Soaring unemployment during the recent recession, the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, has forced the divisive wedge even deeper.

The distance between the two sides has created a vacuum, one that is rapidly filling with anger and hatred, according to Trumka.

“Our politics have been dominated by greed and the forces of money
for a generation,” Trumka says in his prepared comments. “Now, amid the wreckage that came from that experiment, we hear the voices of hatred, of racism and homophobia.”
