Matt Gorniak a firefighter who opted to just use the union for \"fair share\", decided enter a “9/11 tribute” float in the Racine Independence Day Parade. Nothing honors them more than a float in a parade, but the Firefighters Union decided not to put any resources into this float. Firefighters Local 321 decided to use their money for charity that actually help people instead of a PR stunt for a right wing firefighter to get a pat on the back from the right wing talk radio hate triumvirate in the state. This sparked massive fake outrage on the right, and even brought Vicky Pyzinski to Racine(see what you made her do).
I actually think that the Firefighters Local 312, made a mistake and should have fully embraced this float. What better way to show the difference between the two parties – The Republicans who are trying to take the firefighters collective bargaining rights away and make their workplaces less safe and the democrats who are not.
The fake outrage even got the “tea party” involved and since history is not their strong suit lets review. On 9/11, 343 firefighter died in the attacks on the twin towers. Due in large part to the incredible incompetence of Rudy \"9-11\" Guiliani. Who not only did not update the radio system that the firefighters desperatly needed, but also stopped the firefighters from recovering their fallen comrades. He then went on to perpetually lie about his role in this while cashing in on the deaths of 3000 Americans every chance he had( even being mocked by the other candidates). Let’s not forget that Charlie Sykes backed Rudy Guiliani.
I also think that the righty blabbers and the tea party seem to have forgotten who killed Osama Bin Laden. So in reality Mr. Gorniak truly put forth a float in the Racine Parade that showed the stark difference between the two parties, one of incompetence and one that has actually supported working Americans and national security.
Thank you Mr. Gorniak and the “tea party” for the reminder.
