Scott Wagner comments on unions, Hitler, Putin criticized – York Dispatch
“The unions are about power and control. And there are two things that I continue to remember about power and control. There was a gentleman by the name of Hitler, he was about power and control. There’s a gentleman by the name of Putin, who’s across the ocean, that’s about power and control.”

Hitler achieved power and control by volatile public speeches rife with misrepresentations, just like Scott Wagner’s speech. Hitler believed the bigger the lie, the more likely it was that people would believe it … and with one Big Lie after another, he convinced an entire nation to abandon common sense and common decency and embrace a nightmarish agenda to dominate the world – an ethnically cleansed world.
Unions – primarily through work stoppages and boycotts – ended child labor, unsafe working conditions, 16-hour work days, seven day work weeks, and many other evils. And many Americans were murdered by hired guns earning those achievements, just as many are dying on foreign soil right now to bring about similar changes.
Legislators that either doesn’t know history relevant to an issue they’re deciding on your behalf – or flat lie about the relevant history – need to be voted out. We don’t need ongoing stupid, and we don’t need ongoing evil, but for long as the Kochs are involved, that’s what we’ll be facing.
