"Trade unions are a school of communism." -Vladimir Lenin
"An organization has to be built which can bring down capitalism," - Mike Golash
The Daily Caller reports:
Former Amalgamated Transit Union local 689 president Mike Golash, now an "Occupy" movement organizer, was caught on tape Sunday revealing his political goals: overthrowing capitalism in the United States and instituting a communist government.According to the DC Golash actually went so far as to say that he and his comrades 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."
"Progressive labor is a revolutionary communist organization," Golash said during an Occupy DC "People's Assembly" on August 19.
"Its objective," he added, "is to make revolution in the United States, overthrow the capitalist system and build communism."
Readers will recall that Barack Obama, who claims he's no socialist or Marxist, supported the OWS movement, still uses its class warfare rhetoric, and wants another four years to complete his "fundamental transformation of America."
Unions today loathe freedom, as Andy Stern demonstrates in his Wall Street Journal column, because unions require unfree markets in order to thrive. They love big government because unions require the government to guarantee their monopolies on labor. And it is precisely those features of unions that have contributed to their increasing unpopularity in the United States, where citizens are becoming wise to the corrupt conspiracy between unions and government to extinguish their liberties.Related: Book: Obamacare law designed to unionize 21 million health care workers.
