Transit Strike Leader Compares Strikers To Rosa Parks

More bad PR:

Bloomberg again reminded residents that the strike is illegal under state law. Toussaint countered that the Metropolitan Transportation Authority had broken the law by including pensions in negotiations.

He said he was doing what it takes to protect his more than 33,000 members.

“Had Rosa Parks answered the call of the law instead of the higher call of justice, many of us who are now driving the bus would still be in the back of the bus,” he said.

Criticized for suggesting his cause was the same as Rosa Parks, he then backpedaled and said that he had mispoken. "I meant Jesus," he said. "That's why we're doing this at Christmas, you know."

Meanwhile... The Rosa Parks Brigade is destroying New York retail businesses during the crucial Christmas season.
