Shame-On-You Politics: Race-Card Playing AFL-CIO Boss Tries To Fire Up Men To Vote For Elizabeth Warren

Just as he excoriates union members as being racist if they do not vote for Barack Obama, AFL-CIO boss Richard Trumka is using the same tactic on Massachusetts’ men.

In a speech addressing the gender issues at play in the closely watched Massachusetts Senate race, the head of the AFL-CIO said on Monday that it was “crazy” for men not to vote for Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren “because she’s a woman,” just as he dissed incumbent Republican Sen. Scott Brown as the guy who “wears a Bruins jersey with the boys” and “pat[s] us on the back.”

We’ll have to wait to see if Massachusetts men are as stupid as Richard Trumka believes they are.

[Emphasis added.]
