Obama Administration Strategy To "Shame" Companies Into Unionizing

Obama & AFL-CIA President Richard Trumka
 All of the inside-the-beltway wisdom that Barack Obama would shift to the center following the Republican victory in November appears pretty hollow right about now.  For conservatives like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, who declared that Obama was ideologically incapable of moving right, their predictions are looking more and more solid.
This is an administration that is firmly rooted in Marxist and Maoist ideology.  They have stated as much in public forums, and consistently use the language and slogans of Marxism throughout history:
  •  "It’s because you have an obligation to yourself. Because our individual salvation depends on collective salvation." - Barack Obama
  • "The great task before our founders was putting into practice the ideal that government could simultaneously serve liberty and advance the common good. and Government, he believed, had an important role to play in advancing our common prosperity." - Barack Obama
  • "I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets." - Barack Obama (Dreams of My Father)
  • "Political discussions, the kind at Occidental had once seemed so intense and purposeful, came to take on the flavor of the socialist conferences I sometimes attended at Cooper Union" - Barack Obama (Dreams of My Father)
  • two of my favorite political philosophers:  Mao Zedong and Mother Teresa, not often coupled together, but the two people that I turn to most to basically deliver a simple point - Anita Dunn, White House Communication Director
Obama will tone down his more strong rhetoric, especially in light of the recent shootings, but his message will continue to be the same.  He and his administration have no intention of moving off of their agenda of moving toward a more socialist country.

Obama’s Department of Labor encourages, forces unionization

Labor unions give more money to the Democratic Party than any other source, and critics have long accused President Barack Obama’s administration of doing their bidding. Now there is evidence that the White House has indeed put its thumb on the scale on behalf of unions. After saying that “union jobs are, by and large, good jobs,” the Department of Labor’s “strategic plan” for the next five years says: “many of the Department’s outcome goals are furthered by high rates of union membership.”

Don Todd, Americans for Limited Government’s head of research and a former DOL agency head under George W. Bush, told The Daily Caller that the Obama administration wants to “shame” companies into unionizing.

“In a worst-case scenario, your union organizer comes to you, offers you a deal to unionize, you say, ‘no,’ and, the next thing you know, OSHA’s [Occupational Safety and Health Administration] at your door,” Todd said in a phone interview. “Then, Wage and Hour show up, and they want to publicize it. They always find something wrong – it’s like with bed-checks in boot camp in the army.”
