    To reiterate:


    It was later revealed by Senator Estes Kefauverís Investigating Committee that the Mafia, hired by corporate leaders, was responsible for this and other beatings of UAW officials and the shooting of UAW President Walter Reuther and his brother, Victor Reuther.

    Strangely enough, I can remember those hearings but I don't remember even his committee with Democrat kefauver and a majority of democrats on committee coming to that conclusion.

    By the way if you are correct did they say corporate leaders OF WHAT COMPANIES? Or did the just say corporate leaders??????

    And, basically, the media is giving Hoffa a "pass" on his rhetoric.

    I think this opinion piece by Dennis Prager is also in a similar vein when it comes to inflammatory rhetoric.

    of course they do because many of them are in a union too...even the head of the DNC, Wasserman-Schulz evaded the question this morning when asked if she would condemn the Hoffa rhetoric

    on a side note, I waited on the Hoffa family at the reception of Hoffa's niece...the actually had security come in and sweep the room prior to the event..the bride's mother is a sitting judge in the Chicago area...they actually had as much security at the restaurant as when we had GHW Bush..people tried to crash the event, but were not allowed in

    Here's the source:

    http://hall.michiganwomen.org/

    I ran into this site some time ago. Scroll down on the directory page to Genora Johnson Dollinger.

    Conditions in most industries were little short of slavery. The auto industry was no exception. Some sort of push back was inevitable. Corporations have been extremely ugly in fighting back unions. Ford had its notorious Harry Bennet, who ran a nasty gang of thugs, for example.

    My Dad told of a time when he worked for Ford. His buddy's Ford wouldn't start in the morning and he borrowed the neighbor's Chevrolet. Bennet"s thugs met the man in the parking lot after the shift and beat the sap out of him, seriously enough that he needed hospitalization, before they threw him a pink slip.

    Sorry, no proof, no names, no company. Also a union worker's description of senate report and not the actual report.

    Actually no proof that Hoffa eliminated by mafia only suppositions. Anybody can make accusations but proof is what counts.

    Yes but this was how long ago? We now have a plethora of regulations and laws to protect the U.S. worker and ensure the safety of the workplace so unions and their thugs serve no useful purpose except to countries that benefit from the U.S. outsourcing jobs there. There was a time in our history when Pony Express was the fastest means of communication before telegrams, telephones, radio, TV and the internet, does the fact that it was once useful mean we should keep it around?
