When will President Obama dencounce this thuggery?
From the Grand Forks Herald:
Traill County Sheriff Mike Crocker confirmed that "there have been racial statements made to security people" outside the company's Hillsboro, N.D., plant.To be fair, union spokesmen told the paper, "It is not something that the union will accept in any way. The union will not put up with any kind of racism." Where is Obama? Where is AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka?
Crocker also said he recently saw a monkey-like figure hanging from a noose attached to a large inflatable rat outside the plant. He said that by the next day the monkey and the noose had been removed. A photo of the monkey hanging from the noose secured to one of the inflatable rat's claws has also been circulating on the Internet.
Many of the replacement workers contracted by the company through Minnetonka, Minn.-based Strom Engineering are from Southern states and some are minorities.
Crocker said he has also heard that some outside the Hillsboro plant were dressed in white sheets reminiscent of Ku Klux Klan members several weeks ago, but he said he couldn’t confirm if the incident happened.
