Labor Day – Celebrate Unions or Else….

It seems that the Left in Pennsylvania has decided that no one is allowed to discuss anything on Labor Day that doesn’t celebrate unions or involve planning for an outright class war on Republicans & the upper classes. This came out in force yesterday when Congressman Charlie Dent posted about his opportunity to meet with a local Marine who came home from Afghanistan and the Congressman was attacked for celebrating his safe return. (Click the image to enlarge.)

My first thought, “Why is Joe Hackett hating on our military?” Of course, it’s another Tim Daly. One that you might assume is a hardworking blue collar union guy based on his rhetoric. You’d be oh-so-wrong.

Tim Daly owns an advertising firm and lives in Yardley, Pennsylvania, a town with a median family income of more than $103,000 and homes with a median price of about $333,000 as of 2009. Yardley is a nice little place, so good for Tim Daly for getting his graduate degree and settling in a comfortable, fairly wealthy suburb of Philadelphia. In addition to not being an oppressed union worker, Daly is also decidedly not a constituent of Congressman Dent. (I’m not a constituent. I just follow him to see what he’s saying on issues I care about, not to pick fights about whether we are allowed to honor members of the military.)

Oh, but it gets better. Mr. Daly has some interesting allies that come to back up his attacks on the Congressman for honoring those who serve our country.

Wow. All of this hate just because Congressman Dent thought it would be great to celebrate with a local service member. But, Mr. Millar’s rants are apparently familiar to those in the Reading area.

According to The Pennsylvania Progressive, Millar, a self-proclaimed Marxist, has a reputation for using “irrational, intellectually dishonest logic” and was described this way in a debate last year:

He makes these leaps of logic with no foundation and impugns the character of others with no basis in fact. He then further impugned his own character by constantly interrupting Brown violating the rules of the debate and calling him a liar.

It shouldn’t be any surprise. According to the reviews on Rate My Professor, his students report that he regularly holds it against them in their grades if one disagrees with him and he spends his class time ranting about politics instead of teaching. One of the more positive recent reviews that says he is “average” notes that he will “inspire you to think like a communist.”

It’s absolutely disturbing that these people take pride in announcing that military members who put their lives on the line are not worth even acknowledging on a day they perceive to be about celebrating the downfall of the “upper class.” As Wyatt said on Twitter last night: “This Labor Day, remember those who don’t get the day off: our armed forces, police officers, and firefighters.”

    Class Warfare, name-calling and lies.
    Whatever happened to gentleman Liberals like Hubert Humphrey?

  2. Archer says:

    And if LCPL Yeager had been home on Memorial Day, I’d bet Congressman Dent would have honored him then.

    I can see the response from the leftists now….
    “How DARE you honor a living, breathing American soldier on Memorial Day? Don’t you know that Memorial Day is only for honoring the dead soldiers?”

    RE: the first comment: How could it be “disappointing” to honor a veteran at any time of year?

  3. guess combat marine is not a hardworking american…….

    ……who knew?

  4. Bitter says:

    I also love how, as CEO of a company, Daly constantly references a “team,” yet he doesn’t recognize any other employees at all on his company website. I would think that as someone so passionate about the concerns of lower level workers, he would not only recognize the rest of his “team” or at least put up a special message on Labor Day.

  5. Wyatt Earp says:

    And these idiot libtards refuse to realize that the only reason they can write such disparaging things is because of the sacrifice of the American armed forces. The irony, it burns!

    Freedom isn’t free, moonbats. (See also: George Washington, Nathaniel Greene, James Madison, et al.)

  6. David says:

    Bob Millar is a self proclaimed socialist. He is also a “teacher” at Reading Area Community College. I quote “teacher” since I took one of his classes during the summer – years back. If you don’t support or agree with his socialist views you’ll get a C, who cares it was a transfer credit. He cares less about education and facts and more about pushing his propaganda in the classroom and forcing you to read Studs Turkel. He also has a cable tv show that is a total hoot. He rants about how bad capitalism is, while the school he teaches at has been the recipient of very large donations from Marlin Miller (founder of Arrow International), Marlin gives generously to the arts in Berks County.

    Markie Marxist sez: “We Marxists never use irrational, intellectually dishonest logic. Why? Because our logic is never irrational or intellectually dishonest. Why is that? Because we never use irrational, intellectually dishonest logic. See? Our circular logic is impeccable! Ha! Ha!”

  8. Alpheus says:

    I find this funny, because yesterday I was just thinking about how out-of-step Labor Day is with a major element of our society: the entrepreneur, ie, the person who is his own boss. He typically can’t strike, nor can he take arbitrary vacation time, nor can he negotiate with his employers for higher pay, because his “employers” are his customers.

    Yet it is because of people like this that we have 70% of our jobs!

  9. kenno271 says:

    I’d be willing to bet my left testicle that Tim Daly’s workers aren’t unionized.

  10. A Comrade says:

    The Almighty State has declared Labor Day to be the High Holiday of the Working Class. You will want to celebrate it and you will celebrate it, by being inconvienced by closed businesses and government offices if nothing else.

    It is good and great that you wish to celebrate the High Holiday of the Conquering Class, but that is called Veteran’s Day and you will celebrate that when it happens per Unquestionable Dictate of the Almighty State.

    I really should report you for disagreeing with the esteemed Marxist professor and for not bowing down before the Working Class. I’ll let it slide because you want to celebrate the Conquering Class and you are still submitting to the Holy Power of the Almighty State.

    Yet he is still right – killing tens of thousands of innocent people is shameful and does nothing for freedom in America and our troops are indeed just pawns for corporate (and state) interests.

    “Yet he is still right – killing tens of thousands of innocent people is shameful and does nothing for freedom in America and our troops are indeed just pawns for corporate (and state) interests.”

    Yes, all the “innocent” people who hide weapons caches in mosques, and all the “innocent” people who attack soldiers in the middle of crowded marketplaces to prevent those mean, misled Americans from shooting back, lest they kill another “innocent” civilian.

    What is a shame is that the PR tactics of the enemy work so well on people like you who indirectly support them with your naivety.

  13. A Critic says:

    “Yes, all the “innocent” people who hide weapons caches in mosques,”

    Two year olds don’t do that sort of thing.

    “and all the “innocent” people who attack soldiers ”

    Thirteen year old girls don’t do that sort of thing.

    A variety of people do such things. Some or even many of them are patriots. If a foreign nation were to invade this country I sure as heck would be part of the resistance.

    “What is a shame is that the PR tactics of the enemy work so well on people like you who indirectly support them with your naivety.”

    My views are not determined or even influenced by the public relations of any nation or organization.

    Unarmed children do not deserve to be killed by bombs or drones. It is nothing but cowardly murder to do so.
