Teamsters – Like the Westboro Baptist Church, but With Political Connections

7 Comments

In the latest bit of union scummery, the Teamsters have apparently been picketing funeral homes and harassing grieving families. Things got so bad, that a temporary restraining order was issued.

The Appellate Court of Illinois, First Judicial District, granted a temporary restraining order against the Teamsters Local 727 and its leadership on Wednesday. The order calls for picketers to “refrain from conveying any actual or veiled threats against any person, also, refrain from obstructing, hindering, impeding or blocking any person’s entry to or exit from any funeral site or any facility containing a funeral site.”

The ruling comes after a complaint filed by SCI Illinois Services, Inc. asked for a temporary restraining order as well as preliminary and permanent injunctions after repeated incidents of gross insensitivity and harassment directed at grieving families by Teamsters’ picketers outside of funeral homes affected by the union’s current strike against the company.

Now, they’re not quite as hateful as Felching Fred Phelps and his merry band of attention-seeking, inbred, fucktarded family members, who specifically target family members of slain service members to inform them that their loved one is going to hell…

…but they’re close.

Some incidents detailed in the press release include:

During the service of a young child who had passed away from cancer, picketers laughed, smiled and joked as they created a disturbance within the immediate vicinity of the only public entrance to the funeral home.  They were asked to move by a police officer who had been called – then moved back immediately in front of the building and its entrance after the officer left.

Bastions of sensitivity these Teamsters. Glad the threat of police action prompted them to move back, while cowardice and lack of honor and integrity compelled them to continue being assholes after the cop left.

While escorting a woman and her father who were attempting to plan her recently deceased mother’s funeral, an employee escorting them was taunted and called names, the three of them were taunted with a bullhorn and siren sound, and intimidated by an unleashed German Shepherd.

Milk of human kindness, these Teamsters, aren’t they? And using an innocent animal in this manner… beyond the pale.

Picketers used a bullhorn to shout profane and sexually explicit taunts while a woman and her four- and five-year-old sons attempted to make arrangements for her grandmother’s funeral causing the family to become visibly upset.

Almost as classy as Felching Fred Phelps and his horde of shitslurping cuntwarts. Actually, I’m not sure what is worse: shouting sexually explicit obscenities at little kids or taunting the loved ones of fallen Soldiers. I think it’s a tossup here.

Picketers threatened to blow up the house of a retired sheriff’s officer hired to work private security at the funeral home.

Again, it’s a tossup between the Phelps assholes and these assholes. I’ll give it to the Phelps assholes, because they’ve at least never threatened anyone with physical violence.

There are other incidents detailed in this press release, so go and read for yourselves.

It’s one thing to exercise your right to protest and picket an employer. It’s quite another to be an indecent piece of putrid detritus and victimize innocent people who have suffered a horrid loss.

So in the decency department, the Teamsters are about on par with the Felching Phelps. But while Fred and crew are shunned by any decent human being, and any politician wanting to get elected…

…the Teamsters seem to be the golden boys and girls of the Democrats.

Secretary-Treasurer John T. Coli, one of Illinois’ most influential labor leaders, heads the 6,800-member union. Coli brokered the Teamsters endorsement of Barack Obama during his then-long shot campaign for the Democratic nomination—a major turning point in the 2008 primary.

Obama, then a junior senator of Illinois, pledged in private meetings with Teamster leadership to end federal oversight of the powerful union, which had come under scrutiny for its ties to the mafia under Jimmy Hoffa, father to current Teamsters President James Hoffa Jr. Both sides denied any quid pro quo in the deal.

Coli has since arranged other political endorsements that have worked in the union’s favor. The Teamsters were the only major labor organization to endorse President Barack Obama’s chief of staff Rahm Emanuel’s mayoral campaign. Emanuel pledged to crack down on unions to help resolve Chicago’s then-$650 million budget deficit.

A Chicago Tribune analysis found that only one of the nine labor reforms proposed by Emanuel after his election would hurt the Teamsters, while some of the proposals, such as privatizing city recycling, would increase the union’s private sector workload.

The mayor also ignored Chicago Inspector General Joe Ferguson’s recommendation to scuttle a Teamsters contract to shuttle city workers to and from job sites. The contract was fraught with waste since Teamsters were being paid to sit in their trucks waiting for the workers to finish.

My advice to the funeral home employees: better arm up. You’ll be forced to defend yourselves sooner or later.

My message to the Teamsters: keep it classy, assholes. Sooner or later you’ll get yours.

My message to the Democrats: Fuck you.

I would have shot them

I guess after Jimmy Hoffa’s declaration of war on job creators and anyone else who doesn’t kiss the festering carcass of Karl Marx in reverent adoration, this is what we can expect.


Hundreds of Longshoremen stormed the Port of Longview early Thursday, overpowered and held security guards, damaged railroad cars, and dumped grain that is the center of a labor dispute, said Longview Police Chief Jim Duscha.

Six guards were held hostage for a couple of hours after 500 or more Longshoremen broke down gates about 4:30 a.m. and smashed windows in the guard shack, he said.


The rub is no one got arrested.  I guess there’s one law for Zero-supporting union thugs and another for the rest of us.

Since there appears to be no more justice or law, it’s time to take action. If I was one of those security guards, I’d shoot the first bastard who came near me.  And if they didn’t issue me a weapon on the job, I’d bring a personal firearm to work.

Wanna play, fuckbats?

Bring it, bitch!

Apparently, Jimmy Hoffa wants a war.  The union thug issued a challenge to his fellow Marxist scum yesterday -  a Labor Day message that is no doubt a part of Zero’s New Civility™.


“We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They’ve got a war, they got a war with us and there’s only going to be one winner. It’s going to be the workers of Michigan, and America. We’re going to win that war,” Jimmy Hoffa said to a heavily union crowd.

“President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these son of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong,” Hoffa added.


Bring it on, Jimmy!  While you and your sheep bleat your obedience to the Stuttering Clusterfuck in the White House, many Americans are well armed and ready to take on you and your Great Unwashed Army of Ignorami.  I don’t think you want to start this war, but if you do, you’d better bring lots of ammo, bitch!

Meanwhile, Zero is proud of his pet union thug.  Apparently the rules of the New Civility™ only apply when overly-sensitive Democrats get sand in their collective vagina at some innocuous comment uttered by a member of the TEA Party.
