Union chief Richard Trumka says the he deplores the slaughter of people taking place in Syria, according to POLITICO.com. However, the AFL-CIO President failed to speak up when the Muslim Brotherhood was slaughtering thousands of Christians in Egypt. Of course, it’s common knowledge that the slaughter of Christians is a goal shared by Muslims and Communists. The silence on this particular act should come as no surprise. While at the helm of the AFL-CIO, according to Matthew Vadum at FrontpageMag.com, Trumka helped repeal a longtime rule that banned Communists and fellow-travelers from leadership positions in the organization and its unions. The move to open the previously patriotic union to subversives delighted the Communist Party USA. “The radical shift in both leadership and policy is a very positive, even historic change,” CPUSA National Chairman Gus Hall said in 1996.
