Watch me duel with Eric Bolling (who might replace Glenn Beck) about unions

Look who may take over for Glenn Beck…my old sparring partner, Eric Bolling. Man, did I get some email after this — and not all of it negative. I tell you my friends, we’ve got to spread the progressive word wherever and whenever we can!

The attack on public employees and labor unions is an attack on all working Americans.

Proud to stand with activists from all over Michigan in support of labor rights for WI workers and all Americans. Thanks to Move On.Org for sponsoring the rally to Save the American Dream. We’ve got our work cut out for us. MI and America MUST be a place of opportunity for all – not just the folks at the top.

Now is no time for a tea party. Hope you are ready to stand and fight for the American Dream.

“I can understand why Thomas Jefferson said a little revolution now and then is a good thing,” Bernero said. “The assault on unions, the assault on the public employees is nothing less than an assault on the American people.”
