Bigot of the Week Award: March 25

Bigot of the Week

The Tea Party Brew grows more bitter with each passing day. Unfortunately, Scott Walker and Rick Scott have shared some tea/Kool-aid with Maine Tea Party Gov. Paul LePage (R).  LePage’s latest move to order the removal of of a 36-foot mural depicting Maine’s labor history from the lobby of the state’s Department of Labor offices, claiming they received “some complaints” from business owners, earns him this week’s BWA.

But wait! It gets worse. LePage goes even further to prove that this is now Corporate America and workers are immaterial–slaves really, if you will.  Yes, LePage also ordered eight conference rooms named after labor leaders — including Cesar Chavez— to be renamed. Perhaps we can call one of the conference rooms Koch Industries or Haliburton.  LePage is the same governor that supports rolling back child labor laws.  Bravo!  We don’t need to educate our youth.  Better they learn a trade. I hear 10 year olds make perfect coal miners. Here is a great quote from the Portland Press Herald:

This is political payback, the opposite of putting people first. It’s a spiteful, mean-spirited move by the governor that does nothing to create jobs or improve the Maine economy.

Is anyone paying attention out there?  Wake up America. The Tea Party is not about creating jobs or helping Americans; it continues to prove it is the party of Rich White bigoted Christians!  Time for a recall!  Here are two sources to read for further information. Click here and click here.
