Grover Norquist, “Boss” of Tennessee

Volkswagen decided to build a factory in Tennessee to manufacture VWs for the American market. This is what the United States has always said foreign companies should do when they serve an American market.

The workers at the plant have asked for an election to determine as to whether the United Auto Workers union would represent them. The VW company, used to heavily unionized factories in Germany, have no problem with that and even invited the UAW in to make a presentation to the workers.

This should be a matter for the Company and its employees. But guess who has a problem with it? Someone who does not work there, someone who does not live there and someone who does not own VW stock. GROVER NORQUIST, sitting in his Washington office, has a problem with it. Grover is the hobgoblin who controls the Republican Party and orders its Congress-critters about.  Podunk may elect a Representative but Grover tells him how to vote.

Grover sent the word out to his minions in Tennessee that Unions are not to be allowed at the VW plant. The minions in the Tennessee Legislature got busy and passed State laws which would deny any State benefit, tax credit, deduction or aid previously promised to get the Company to relocate to Tennessee if and when a Union is selected. Grover’s Tennessee minions would prefer to shut down the factory and dispense with several thousand jobs than allow a Union to be duly elected by the workers.

The concept of “Class War” is not a simple bugaboo to frighten the gullible. It is going on, it is being fought and it is being won by the One Percent BECAUSE they know they are fighting it. They will buy elections, they will buy politicians, they will buy courts and they will buy propaganda to persuade us that they are not at war against us. They don’t fight fair and they will win unless we begin to fight back.

    I’M A SOCIALIST DEMOCRAT. THANK YOU FOR YOUR FAIR BALANCE POLITICAL REPORTING, YOU HAVE PROVED YOURSELF A RELIABLE SOURCE OF NEWS WHEN YOU ATTACK DEMOCRATS FOR THEIR UNEVEN HAND/ CORRUPT VIEWS AND VOTING. THE OTHER DAY I WAS READING ONE OF YOUR NEWSLETTERS, I THOUGHT FOR SURE YOU WERE A CONSERVATIVE OUTLET POSING AS DEMOCRAT LEANING NEWSLETTER, UNTIL I GOOGLE WHO STARTED “THE DISSENTING DEMOCRAT’. I LOVED IT WHEN JON STEWART (FEB. 12.2014) EXPOSED NANCY PELOSI FOR THE BULLSHIT THAT SPILLS FROM HER MOUTH.

  2. Grover is a scumbag and detriment to anyone who sells their time in America for an income but it wasn’t only him. The Koch brothers were certainly involved and other right wing front groups played a part.

    These bastards not only want to roll back the 20th century new deal but also would like to take us back to the 1800’s… you know that wonderful period of child labor, etc….
