Tea Party Groups Condemn Hoffa ‘SOB’ Remark

Tea Party groups roundly condemned Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa after he called on union supporters unhappy with congressional Republicans to “take these son-of-a-bitches out.”

The Tea Party Express called the comments “inexcusable,” saying they amounted to “a call for violence on peaceful Tea Party members.”

The national group, along with Tea Party Nation, urged President Obama to condemn the remarks delivered by Hoffa while warming up the crowd Monday before a Labor Day speech by the president. The White House so far has not commented on Hoffa’s strong language.

“Lying attacks on the tea party movement have disturbingly increased in recent days. It is high time that elected leaders like President Obama were held accountable when their key supporters engage in harmful and divisive rhetoric,” Tea Party Express Chairwoman Amy Kremer said in a statement. “We at Tea Party Express demand an immediate apology from Teamster President Jimmy Hoffa. We further urge President Obama to strongly rebuke Hoffa for his dangerous comments.”

Hoffa is standing by his comment, telling the blog Talking Points Memo that he’d say it again because “they declared war on us. We’re fighting back.”
