Republicans Cheer That Labor Leaders Murdered In Colombia

Hundreds of executions in Texas — Republican crowd cheers.
An uninsured person in a coma — Republican crowd shouts “Let him die!”
And now, labor leaders murdered in Colombia — Republicans say “A good start…”
See the comments under an article at The Hill about how many labor leaders have been killed in Colombia — 15 since the US signed on to a treaty: AFL-CIO President Trumka sends list of killed Colombian labor leaders to Obama –
Republicans are swarming the comments. Example:

What do you call a list of 22 dead labor leaders?
A good start…

And trust me, it isn’t just this one comment over there… go see before they take it down. (Never mind you can see some of them preserved here: and here

so Columbia is doing a good job of getting rid of vermin why is this cause for concern?

I wonder if those killing the labor slugs in Colombia can outsource that work here.

Could we get them to do it here? There are more than enough union thug bosses already.
