County commissioner calls teachers, police officers and firefighters animals

There is no doubt that the latest round of union-busting by Republicans is about politics because union, workers and the middle class tend to support Democrat, but the hate coming from the right is just amazing.
Only in their world are teachers, police officers and firefighters thugs and animals, but that's what at least one elected Republican thinks. Pro-worker rallies were held all over the country in support of Wisconsin public employees on Saturday, and more than a thousand people showed up in Lansing.

But this is what teabagger Republican Grand Traverse County Commissioner Jason Gillman thinks of teachers, state employees, police officers and firefighters.

"For my part, I am convinced many of the labor union members that go to these rallies are little more than animals," he said on the leading rightwing blog "RightMichigan."

This is an elected official.
Remember that when they use police officers and firefighters as props at press conferences; it appears they are only standing next to these "animals" for political purposes.
