"The head of the nation's biggest labor federation is joining the chorus of voices warning about the increasingly angry crowds coming to John McCain's campaign events...
'Sen. John McCain, Gov. Sarah Palin, and the leadership of the Republican party have a fundamental moral responsibility to denounce the violent rhetoric that has pervaded recent McCain and Palin political ralllies,' said John Sweeney, president of the AFL-CIO, which has endorsed Obama. 'When rally attendees shout out such attacks as terrorist or kill him about Sen. Barack Obama, when they are cheered on by crowds incited by McCain/Palin rhetoric—it is chilling that McCain and Palin do nothing to object.
'In a world where unspeakable violence is too often promulgated by extremists, it is no small or trivial matter to call someone a terrorist—or to incite potentially dangerous individuals toward violence. John McCain, Sarah Palin, and the Republican leaders are walking a very thin line in pretending not to hear the hateful invective spewed at their rallies. McCain should end this line of attack in the strongest possible terms. Anything less puts McCain in the same camp as the racists and extremists who are bringing their angry rhetoric to his campaign events."
