Profiles in American Labor Heroism

Now, obviously, 80% of American workers are good workers.

But 20% aren't.

And that 20%, a mix of incompetents and deadweight, is the 20% the unions exist to protect from firing.

The 80% doing their jobs need far less protection -- hardly any at all. A man or woman doing his or her job is making someone money, and people like making money.

The 80% need some union help, from time to time.

But it's the 20% of workers who know they wouldn't have a job if not for the union who are, of course, the most fervent supporters of the union -- and in turn, the unions fervently support these 20%.

So it's false, as the unions claim, that not a single union worker should be fired, ever.

Let's look at a few examples of some workers whose firings would probably not negatively impact the companies they work for.

At the Denver EPA, they have a problem with toxic emissions.

The agency has received more than a dozen reports of 'beyond gross' behavior in its Denver office -- including a woman who has been smearing menstrual blood and human feces on the walls.

Other reports include 'a trail of [human waste] leading out in the hallway' near the men's bathroom, an employee who urinated on the toilet seat and floor of the bathroom, and another employee who defecated outside the building when he was locked out.

In June, a memo from Deputy Regional Administrator Howard Cantor was released publicly that revealed the Denver office of the EPA was beset by an employee who was clogging toilets and putting human waste on the floor outside the bathroom.

It gets worse. The non-maniacs working there have summoned the Department of Homeland Security to protect them from the toxic waste -- and the disturbed human beings responsible for it.

One worker says she's "terrified," because she wonders what these miscreants will do when poop and menstrual blood no longer satisfy their urge to transgress.

Meanwhile, near Boston, the local Teamsters union threatens and bullies the crew of Top Chef, including its dainty hostess Padma Amadalla or whatever her name is.

And I do mean "threatening."

Arrest them.

When "Top Chef" star Padma Lakshmi arrived on the set, picketers called her a "(expletive) whore," our source confirmed, and threatened to "bash that pretty face in."

Arrest them now.

[O]ne of them ran up to her car and screamed, "We're gonna bash that pretty face in, you fucking whore!" . . .

"She got of her car in front of the location and quickly ran through the picket line," a source said. "They were yelling, 'You bitch! You slut! We're gonna get you!' It went on like that all day."

They also slashed fourteen of the crew's tires.

Now while these stories have caught some attention in the alternate media, you will not hear about them in the establishment media for the same reason you won't hear Obama jokes on SNL:

Because the media is an arm of the Democratic establishment, and they realize these stories -- like the fundamentalist Muslim murderer of gay men -- discomfit one segment of the Democratic constituency, or pit one constituency against another.

As Greg Gutfeld put it, the media only wants "Clean Narratives." The only conflict the media is interested in is Democrat vs. GOP conflict -- where the GOP (or the Designated Villains that make it up) can be cast as the heavy.

When there's misbehavior within the Democrat coalition, the media gets very, very quiet indeed.
