Michael Graham, Boston Herald: Hate speech, hypocrisy from AFL-CIO chief

Talk about street cred. I just got called “dangerous” by the head of a labor union.

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka was at Harvard Wednesday night, denouncing talk show hosts like yours truly as “apostles of hatred.” He accused Glenn Beck (the only host he called out by name) and the rest of us supporting the Tea Party crowd of being a “similar movement” to the “Nazi-style” fascism of the 1930s with its “racial hatred and political violence.”

A labor leader disturbed by possible “political violence”? That’s a switch. When I think of “kindler, gentler labor action,” I assume that means being told to “watch your head” as they close the trunk of the Caddy.
