The latest SEIU song on their website tells all service employees that their bosses are liars who want to steal your soul. Union members should rise up against their bosses, “take the bastards down” and “smash them to the ground.” As a small business owner that employees around fifty people, what did Glenn think of the song? He played it and gave his reaction on radio this morning.
“Don't believe their lies. Okay. So far, is that you? Does your boss come calling and put you down? Does your boss come calling and are you going to stand your ground? Are you going to believe his lies? Do you believe that about bosses?” Glenn asked union members.
“Some bosses, sure. We're not talking about some bosses. We're talking about all bosses,” Glenn said.
“Pat, can you think that you would ‑‑ you know, I can't think of any bosses off the top of my head that are going to, you know, put us down,” Stu joked in reference to Glenn.
“You want to talk about oppression? I'll occupy your house. I'll be in your refrigerator. I got sticks in my refrigerator. I'll be in your refrigerator at 3:00 in the morning and you'll be like, what are you doing in my house? I'm occupying your kitchen right now and I'm going to oppress you and your desserts,” Glenn joked.
Getting back to his point, Glenn said,“Ask yourself all the way along in this song, is this what you believe?”
“You know, it's neat because it's almost like Ahmadinejad, we need to put an end to oppression, occupation, and humiliation of people. Isn't that weird that there seems to be a theme running through the entire world now,” Glenn said.
“This is SEIU. That is from SEIU.org.”
Stu explained, “They are promoting it and it was, apparently the [Dropkick Murphy’s] itself is talking about how it's about solidarity with the workers in Wisconsin.”
Glenn then decided to play another Anti-America and Anti-Capitalism song, the one by LowKey that he danced to a few weeks ago.
After listening to the lyrics Glenn asked, “ Isn't that, isn't that kind of what I was saying?”
“He said it really smart with an English accent. You said it in a stupid way and, plus, you're not a musician,” Pat explained.
