UAW Supports Our Troops?

WDIV in Detroit has reported here, that the UAW has rescinded parking privileges to Marine Corps Reservists who use their parking lot in Detroit. The group is angry with reservists who don't drive American owned vehicles or who have Bush/Cheney bumper stickers displayed on their cars. Boo effen hoo, these are the people defending our country!

"While the reservists certainly have the right to drive non-union made vehicles and display bumper stickers touting the most anti-worker, anti-union president since the 1920s, that doesn't mean they have the right to park in a lot owned by the members of the UAW,"

These are the same people driving around with "We Support the Troops" bumper stickers while secretly wishing the death toll in Iraq will rise to support their twisted political agenda. Anyway, when you have a Bush/Cheney bumper sticker on your car, a "We Support the Troops" bumper sticker is redundant.

Redundant, indeed. The UAW is known for pulling such stunts. Good catch, I'm a bit surprised that the Detroit local MSM outlet would devote airtime to a story that is critical of the UAW

It is their lot, but why the sudden change? The union never thinks why did that car get purchased; lower price, better quality, they just expect their $hi7 gets bought because it's union. What's next for UAW, ban all racing stickers that are not NASCAR because it's the only racing that uses union cars? Those UAW workers out at Michigan Truck better start buying american grown Pot to smoke during their lunch break
