While the fascist Nazi brown shirts of the Demokrat Partei's Demokratik Unterground celebrate the partei's Kristallnacht against 3-year-old Sophia Porlock, the President of the The International Union of Painters and Allied Trades says the Union may press criminal charges if U.S. Department of Labor laws were broken: Statement from the General President Regarding the Events in Huntington, WV. (Hat tip Right-Wing Zen and LGF)
The International Union of Painters and Allied Trades believes in the fundamental right for civil discourse, freedom of speech and activism to support our candidates and issues.
What happened in Huntington, West Virginia yesterday is an affront to everything we, as a union, pride ourselves to represent. We extend our apologies to the Parlock family, especially Sophia, for the distress one of our overzealous members caused them.
I have personally taken steps to address this issue internally, and will take immediate disciplinary action to the fullest extent allowed under U.S. Department of Labor regulations and the constitution of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades.
It is my hope that this incident reminds all of our members that every last citizen in this country has the right to express his or herself freely. Not one single one of us has the right to tell them otherwise.
General President James A. Williams
