(en) US, Anarchist WSA* - Ideas & Actions - The Price of Coal: Greed and Corruption Kills 29 Miners By Mike Kolhoff
âAmerican labor is under attack,ï based on greed, based on ignorance, based on lies, based
on fundamental misunderstandings about what our governmentâs core purpose is ââ The above
quote is from a speech given by Massey Energy CEO Don Blankenship at a coal-industry
sponsored Labor Day celebration in 2009, the âFriends of America Rallyâ held near Holden,
West Virginia. The event was an orgy of anti-union and anti-environmental debauchery
attended by such intellectual luminaries as Ted Nugent and Lord Christopher Monckton,
(former science advisor to Margaret Thatcher). The message of the day was clearly stated:
unions are ruining America and global warming is a scam perpetrated by Liberal Terrorists.
Common sense surely says itâs so.
