Union Admits It Hates Voters And Loves Communist Imagery With Help of Dropkick Murphys Band

-By Warner Todd Huston

Proving that there seems to have been a good reason that in many eras of American history the "Irish Need Not Apply," a bunch of drunken morons calling themselves the Dropkick Murphys have added their off key voices to American union thuggery by writing a protest song that the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has glommed onto.

The song's title is Take 'Em Down and in it they claim they want to "take the bastards down." But shall I just point out who "the bosses" are for the SEIU and the workers in Wisconsin that the Murphys are direct their song to? That would be you and me.

You see, the SEIU and the workers in Wisconsin are made up of millions of public employees whom we pay with our taxes. So, when the Dorkdick Murphys are telling the SEIU to "take the bastards down" they are telling our public employees to take we the people down! This is the stupidity and disconnect of the halfwits that support public employees. These people are tax leeches, not aggrieved workers being oppressed by eeeevil corporations. These thieves want to take money from you and me, the taxpayer.

Then we have the harkening to Soviet communist propaganda on the Dropkick Murphys' artwork. The image they used is a communist "unite" image. And the SEIU proudly placed this image on its own website proving once again that unions are anti-American and pro-communist.

Here are some of the lyrics of the, uh, masterpiece...

When the boss comes calling he'll put us down
When the boss comes calling you gotta stand your ground
When the boss comes calling, don't believe their lies

When the boss comes calling he'll take his toll
When the boss comes calling will ya sell you soul
When the boss comes calling we gotta organize

Let them know
We gotta take the bastards down
Let them know
We gotta smash 'em to the ground
Let them know
We gotta take the bastards down

When the boss comes calling you'll be on your own
When the boss comes calling will you stand alone
When the boss comes calling will you let them in

When the boss comes calling will you stand and fight
When the boss comes calling we must unite
When the boss comes calling we can't let them win

... well, this badly written, hate-filled piece of garbage goes on rather repetitively for quite some time and I won't waste my time any further on the "lyrics." Suffice to say they want the "bastards" smashed to the ground. And I repeat YOU AND ME are the bastards in question, folks.

Why does the SEIU and the Dropkick Murphys hate voters so much?

As far as I am concerned the "bastards" are the Murphys and the SEIU! They are stealing my taxes to live high on the hog while the rest of lose our jobs, have our taxes raised, and are left holding the bag for the union's lavish lifestyles.

As to the band, I think someone "dropkicked" them in the head a time too many in one too many bar fights. They are ignorant fools.

  • You obviously research your subject matter before you write your column. Or, judging by when your column was posted, you just watch Beck and then repeat his equally ignorant rant.

    The Dropkick Murphys have been around for 15 years now and have supported unions since their formation. They have also very actively supported our troops (I'm sure you have a "Support Our Troops" bumper sticker on your car, that is if you are a REAL American, right Warner!) including playing at a soldier's funeral at the families request. It was the soldier's wish that if he were killed in combat he wanted to have the band to play at his funeral. They have also been big supporters of firefighters over the years. You know, just like Ben Franklin, who's likeness is at the top of your page. Proving again you are in fact a real American, capital A! Certainly not one of those east coast elitists! To hell with that "we're all New Yorkers now" bit that after 9/11!!

    Wait, if I'm not mistaken, union firefighters and police officers were killed on 9/11 when they bravely rushed into those burning buildings trying to save people's lives. The nerves of those "tax leeches"! Then some of them had to go ahead and get sick from all the toxins they breathed in trying to save and/or recover people in the rubble of the World Trade Center. Another ploy to get tax payers money I'm sure, after all, they are in a union.

    The Dropkick Murphys are also huge fan's of that great American past time, baseball! Being from Boston they are of course Red Sox fans. They have even sung the National Anthem at Fenway Park before a game. And they even knew all the words! Sounds pretty American to me, but I'm sure it's not as it seems, they probably only support the Red Sox is because they wear red. You know, the only color communists love!!!

    They are releasing a new album in a few days, and as albums tend to go Warner, the songs are written months in advance. It is a concept album and this song is part of that theme:

    "Going Out In Style is a concept album and will take the band

  • In reply to ILUVBECK:

    You do have a rich fantasy life. Next time, though, do leave it with your therapist instead of burdening us with it all. Thanks and have a great day.

  • In reply to ILUVBECK:

    Someone at ChicagoNow needs to check if this ^^ is the longest post ever made.

  • In reply to gwill:

    LOL. I DID wonder if that guy expected me to actually READ all that blather? (I didn't, by the way)
    :)

  • In reply to gwill:

    How do you know that I have a "rich fantasy life" if you didn't read "all that blather"? And how do you know if I'm a guy? You are a witty guy though Warner. Not William F. Buckley witty, and not even really Carrot Top witty, but witty nonetheless. But I will boil it down for you, you're full of sh!t.

  • In reply to ILUVBECK:

    Nice. A typical distempered left-winger that can't write anything without resorting to name calling and curse words. You people have several mental troubles.

  • In reply to publiusforum:

    Umm you referred to DKM as "drunken morons", "bastards", and "ignorant fools". You also just said "ILUVBECK" has mental troubles. The people who support the protests you called "halfwits"

    Does that mean you can't write anything without name calling either? If that's the case then you also have several mental troubles

  • In reply to FckPluburusForum:

    I used the words they used. So, then you agree that DKM have mental problems. Glad we can agree.

  • In reply to FckPluburusForum:

    Says the guy who wrote "Dropdick Murphys". When did I call you a name? And the "you people have several mental issues" and "leave it with your therapist" is a lame and old tactic to try and discredit your opponent. I've seen it a million times and it is boring. I thought you had more than this Warner!

  • In reply to FckPluburusForum:

    The creation of Unions also led to the creation of labor laws and public education. If living in a country where workers are exploited and don't have rights = freedom, then maybe you should move to China where you can get what you want. As for me, I'll stay in the country where the public can have a voice and fight for human rights. Protesting is a legal right and the people in the streets are law abiding citizens who are willing to take less benefits, but just want to keep their collective bargaining rights.

  • In reply to FckPluburusForum:

    If you also don't like education for everyone, your roads, your policemen and firemen who protect you, and the people who make this country run, then you should probably also move to a country where they don't have any of that either. There you can build a mansion out of the garbage around you and say free at last, free at last, I no longer pay any taxes, I am free at last.

  • In reply to FckPluburusForum:

    ...try staying on topic. If you can cite where I said I "don't like" any of the above, then you might have a point. Otherwise, can the idiocy.

  • In reply to FckPluburusForum:

    You don't like taxes. The following are all paid for by taxes. The end. Try actually debating instead of using name calling over and over again.

  • In reply to FckPluburusForum:

    Again you simply make wile-eyed assumptions of me based on nothing, call names, and then you claim you have "debated"? Nice try.

  • In reply to FckPluburusForum:

    Let me sum it up for you. DKM has been around for 15 years and have always supported unions. Unions are what protected many immigrants who came to this country. The song "Take em Out" was written before the Wisconsin protests. Punk rock generally has a theme of basic human rights for all. Without unions, workers would be exploited and wouldn't receive basic human rights. Before DKM even released this song to show support, Tom Morello, Tim McIlarth(rise against), Wayne Kramer, Tom Gable (against me!)..etc, all singers of punk rock bands played in Wisconsin on Monday. Tim McIlarth's and Tom Gabel's band's both supported rock the vote campaigns and encouraged people to vote and yet both support the Wisconsin protests. This has nothing to do with "anti-voting". These people support the right to vote, and they also support the right to protests. Both rights are given to us as born Americans.

  • In reply to FckPluburusForum:

    Without unions workers would be "exploited"? Boilerplate nonsense. WITH unions workers are held back, the economy is hampered, productivity is squelched, and our competitiveness is damaged.

    As to "punk rock," it has the "punk" part right. Gutter garbage, worthless as music.

  • In reply to publiusforum:

    Citation needed.

  • In reply to FckPluburusForum:

    Again, name calling. You really discredit yourself a lot with it. The creation of unions led to safer and less dangerous work environments, reasonable hours, public education, etc etc. Without unions the laws that we have now that protect workers, public and private, wouldn't exist.

  • In reply to FckPluburusForum:

    Not axiomatic. Were unions behind the push for these laws? Of course. Would we "not have them without unions?" Unprovable. And the last time unions were worthy of support was sometime around the turn of the last century. Since then they have been worse than useless.

    Still, while I think unions are essentially useless in an age when law makes them superfluous, I am not against unions in the private sector. If a company wants to damage itself by participating in collective bargaining, then they have that right.

    However, public employees were illegal until 1958 and they have proven a dangerous and failed experiment. They should be made illegal again.

    Again, you love this profane DKM, but they are saying that YOU and I are the "bastards" that need to be put down. WE are the employers of public employees. WE are the ones that these idiots are attacking.

    Excuse me if I don't take kindly to people whose musical expertise seems to be limited to the primal scream calling me a "bastard" that needs to be put down.

    Public employee unions are antithetical to democracy and destructive to good government.

  • In reply to FckPluburusForum:

    ... Oh, and your opinion of me is utterly meaningless to me.

  • In reply to FckPluburusForum:

    I like public employees and I'm more than happy to pay taxes so we have them. I like public education for all, I like planned parenthood, I like having a responsive 911 system, I like all these things. Public employees are nothing but average workers. The "BOSS" isn't you. This song was designed for workers, public and private. This song was released early for the Wisconsin public workers so they can keep their voice which is something Scott Walker is trying to strip. These workers are entitled to collective bargaining. Any governor who says no they can't have a voice and the only deciding voice will be me, the head of the Wisconsin governor isn't very democratic. That's more like a dictatorship.

  • In reply to FckPluburusForum:

    Right. An elected official in the American system is a "dictator." You are foolish to arrive at such a childish conclusion. It is ahistorical and makes light of those people in other countries that really DO suffer under dictatorships. there has never been an American "dictator." I doubt its even possible to have one the way our system is configured.

    As to "liking" public employees, oh, DO show me a quote where I said I don't "like" them. DO show me where I called for the abolition of a 911 system.Show me such quotes or cut the idiotic hyperbole.

    Of course, you can certainly find quotes from me that will inform you that I hate the baby killers in planned parenthood. I find abortion immoral, but seeing as how it is currently legal, I feel their actions are lawful but not moral. On the other hand, I find it unconstitutional that my tax dollars goes to fund baby murder. Not a penny of tax money should go to prop up these baby killers.

    R v Wade is illicitly decided and I am in hopes that it is overturned one day soon.

    As to the DKMs I disagree. They are calling me and every taxpayer a "bastard." You see WE ARE the boss of government and we pay its bills. We, the people, ARE government. To say otherwise is simply wrong on every level and makes of the sayer wholly uneducated on the American system.

  • In reply to publiusforum:

    Actually it is your comment that is ahistorical. The American system, as you call it, is known as the Democratic system and history is filled with leaders who were elected democratically, who in turn became dictators. Adolf Hilter was elected to office by the German people and is one of many throughout the relatively short history of democracy wherein a Dictator took power through elections.

  • In reply to priz2k:

    Wrong. The American system is not "known as the Democratic [sic] system." It is a Republic. Back to the history books for you. And none of them ever became "dictators." What has happened in other countries is immaterial.

  • In reply to publiusforum:

    You really shouldn't tell people to go back to the history books when . The United States is a republic. We elect our leaders democratically. The "American system" flows out of the ideas of Alexander Hamilton and found its greatest proponent in Henry Clay. But please, by all means continue to lecture us on history.

  • In reply to dotlane:

    when you're so clearly ignorant of the subject at hand.

  • In reply to publiusforum:

    "On the other hand, I find it unconstitutional that my tax dollars goes to fund baby murder."

    If you paid attention, you'd understand that none of your precious tax dollars go to fund "baby murder" because that legislation has already gone through Congress. But, if you persist in your delusion, why don't you just imagine that your tax dollars go to pay the fraction of the cost of a surface to air missile used to kill terrorists? Furthermore, I'd be fascinated to learn which part of the Constitution bans your tax dollars from being used for non-existent abortions. Feel free to make up whatever you want, which is apparently your m.o.

  • In reply to dotlane:

    Apparently you are unaware that Planned Parenthood gets millions of tax dollars every year. Their main business is abortion. Therefore, our tax dollars goes to fund PP and its baby killing mills. Further, foreign aid is sometimes spent on abortion thanks to Obama. Again, ipso facto my tax dollars go to fund abortions.

    As to the Constitution, it is obvious you don't know how it works. There is no long list of things it says that it won't fund. It features LIMITED and ENUMERATED powers given to the federal government. It doesn't need a clause that says abortion is an illicit expenditure because if it ISN'T mentioned as a legal expenditure it is NOT a legal expenditure.

  • In reply to publiusforum:

    Well, no, again, you're wrong. Planned Parenthood's main business is not abortion. Furthermore, federal funding cannot be used for abortions by statute. Planned Parenthood has to account for how it uses its federal funding, and is audited every year, so, no, our tax dollars don't fund abortions.

    Ah yes, limited and enumerated powers. How convenient they are when one wishes to try to talk about spending, and how limiting they are when one talks about the crippling moral conservatism loved by your ilk. But hey, if you're willing to thrown out almost two hundred years of case law and Supreme Court decisions, be my guest. I'll be the one laughing at you because "necessary and proper" applies to all of the amendments to the Constitution.

    So yeah, as a historian of the early republic specializing in economic history, I think I just might know a little more about the subject than you do.

  • In reply to dotlane:

    ASSume all you want as all arrogant leftists do. Oh, you are sooooo much smarter than all that surround you. Your self esteem does not lack any pumped up, little deserved self-praise.

    The fact is PP is an abortion provider and we pay for it to exist. And I like the way you ignored the foreign aid point. Typical how you left-wingers ignore anything that doesn't fit your agenda.

    As to "legal precedent" you really want to play that empty game? After all, it was legal precedent (AND a Supreme Court ruling) that said that slavery was perfectly legal for well over 100 years in this country. Was all that "precedent" a good thing?

    Just because there has been legal precedent does not mean it is right and/or moral. But you go ahead and float your smoke screen and pretend you have the upper hand. Obviously you need so much to let everyone know that you think you are smarter than everyone else, so don't let me get in the way of your mental difficulties.

  • In reply to FckPluburusForum:

    You make a giant rant about DKM, but when someone tries to defend DKM you don't either bother to debate.

  • In reply to publiusforum:

    Can I just point out Mr. I'm Right wing... It was in fact you who resorted to name calling first or did you forget your attempt at wit by calling the band and I quote you sir "Dropdick Murphy's"

  • In reply to publiusforum:

    If we run with your theory that WE are the "bosses" that DKM refer to in their song that they released in support of the Public Sector Workers in Wisconsin. We for the sake of this argument will overlook that the song was most likely written well before 2011.
    We have become the bosses of said Public Sector Workers, as you have repeatedly pointed out, through our taxes... wait; don't teachers and cops and firemen pay taxes too. So that makes them their own bosses by following your logic.
    So really if you actually put rational thought into what was being referenced in the song you would realize that the "Bosses" that are referred to are yet MORE Public Servants in the form of the State Assembly and the Governor who are BLATANTLY ignoring "their bosses" as you have already claimed us tax payers to be. And you may try to argue that the Governor et. al. are not ignoring those that voted them into power, yet when a large First Amendment assembly gathers I and many other rational persons would see this as a "Petition for a Governmental redress of grievances"

  • In reply to priz2k:

    Everything you wrote here are meaningless points. Cops and firemen are indeed paying their own wages thru taxes. So what? The Gov. in Wisconsin campaigned on doing EXACTLY what he is doing so he is NOT "ignoring" his bosses. No one tried to stop the "First Amendment assembly" of the teacher thugs. Next time you think you have a great point it would be nice if you actually HAD one.

  • In reply to publiusforum:

    "teacher thugs" LOL!

  • In reply to publiusforum:

    "The Gov. in Wisconsin campaigned on doing EXACTLY what he is doing so he is NOT "ignoring" his bosses."

    You keep making assertions and keep batting .000 There has been no evidence that Wisconsin's Governor *ever* made a public pronouncement while campaigning that he planned to unilaterally end collective bargaining for public employees.

  • In reply to publiusforum:

    No, the Governor of Wisconsin never publicly mentioned eliminating collective bargaining while he was campaigning. Feel free to delete my comment again, since that's apparently how you deal with being wrong, by pretending the truth doesn't exist.

  • In reply to dotlane:

    I deleted no comment. And, yes the Gov. did run on the program he's instituting. His WHOLE career is filled with these sort of policies. And NO he is not "eliminating collective bargaining." You are simply a liar.
