  • That's One Way to Fill the Hall for a Trump Speech...

    ...threaten the workers into attending:

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/17/polit...pay/index.html

    'Workers at the Pennsylvania petrochemical plant where President Donald Trump spoke Tuesday were told that if they didn't attend the event, they either had to use paid time off or receive no pay for the day.'

    'At least some of the workers who attended the speech were instructed not to protest the President, who told the crowd of workers at the Royal Dutch Shell plant he would be imploring their union leaders to support his reelection.'

    'The instructions to the workers came in a memo, a copy of which was obtained by CNN's Polo Sandoval from a congressional source. That source was given the memo by a person in Beaver County, Pennsylvania -- the site of the plant.'

        It is. It goes against everything this country is supposed to be about. Being forced (or coerced) to support a President, or coerced to attend his speech is something that happens in a dictatorship. It shouldn't have any place here. But, conservatives are authoritarians so the matter of freedom isn't something that's going to register with them. They'd rather everyone bow to Trump than be free.

                It reminds me of the old way of politics-such as the Tamany Hall BS in the 19th century and paying people to vote, along with the street 'toughs' hired to enforce the will of the party bosses.
