Bachmann tells supporters unions are engaging in ‘class warfare’

In a Labor Day email titled “Big Labor Attack Squad,” U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann asked supporters to “level the playing field” with labor by donating to her campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.

In the email, Bachmann said unions have been falsely attacking her campaign ”as they grow fearful of our increasing momentum,” referring to a labor rally in Detroit that President Barack Obama spoke at over the weekend.

Bachmann rejected an earlier assertion by International Brotherhood of Teamsters President James P. Hoffa that she wanted to end Social Security. She referred to him as a “notorious union boss and Obama advisor.”

At the event with Obama, Hoffa earned the ire of Republicans when he criticized tea partiers as “anti-labor” and called Republican congressmen “sons of bitches.”

“We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face, the war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They’ve got a war, they’ve got a war with us and there’s only going to be one winner—it’s going to be the workers of Michigan, and America.”

Bachmann blamed unions for job losses, using the example of the National Labor Relations Board’s ruling that Boeing’s South Carolina plant was built in retribution for legal labor actions by the company’s unionized Washington workers, a ruling that Bachmann called “un-American.”

“When they’re not on the attack on CNN, union bosses like Hoffa in Washington, DC, are getting big returns on their election day influence, yielding unprecedented power granted by Obama appointments to the National Labor Relations Board, and costing Americans countless jobs in the process.”

Bachmann said unions that are using terms like “anti-worker” are engaging in “class warfare.”

“Big labor policies enforced by unelected and unaccountable Obama bureaucrats cost Americans jobs, while boosting the professional and political prospects of union leaders like Jimmy Hoffa. As President, you can be sure that I will respect the right of Americans to work, and enact policies that promote prosperity and economic freedom, not membership in declining unions.”

Bachmann’s email repeatedly asked supporters to make “a contribution of $25, $50, $100, or any amount up to the legal limit.”
