unionsAmong conservatives, quite a reaction to these statements from Mike Golash, a former major D.C. union boss who spoke during the August 19 Occupy D.C. (Washington) “People’s Assembly”:

“Progressive labor is a revolutionary communist organization. Its objective is to make revolution in the United States, overthrow the capitalist system and build communism.”

[We are] “trying to learn something from the historical revolutions of the past: the Russian revolution, the Chinese revolution, the revolutions in Cuba and Eastern Europe….”

“The capitalists — they have their organizations: the FBI, the CIA, the secret police, the military, the army, etc., etc. They have organizations to maintain their power. It’s foolish to think that without a disciplined organization made up not of a few people but of millions and millions of people, [we] can bring down capitalism.”

Golash, who used to run D.C.’s chapter 689 of the Amalgamated Transit Union and is responsible for organizing workers on the D.C. metro, is an Occupy organizer as well.

This is the real truth about the Left’s plans for America. These remarks should remove all doubt about the impact of your involvement in this November’s elections. We cannot afford to sit home and lose this fight for freedom!
