Hundreds of executions in Texas -- Republican crowd cheers.

An uninsured person in a coma -- Republican crowd shouts "Let him die!"

And now, labor leaders murdered in Colombia -- Republicans say "A good start..."

See the comments under an article at The Hill about how many labor leaders have been killed in Colombia -- 15 since the US signed on to a treaty: AFL-CIO President Trumka sends list of killed Colombian labor leaders to Obama - TheHill.com

Republicans are swarming the comments. Example:

    What do you call a list of 22 dead labor leaders?

    A good start…

And trust me, it isn't just this one comment over there... go see before they take it down. (Never mind you can see some of them preserved here: http://yfrog.com/nxx0rp and here http://yfrog.com/kgf13jp

    so Columbia is doing a good job of getting rid of vermin why is this cause for concern?

    I wonder if those killing the labor slugs in Colombia can outsource that work here.

Another:

    Could we get them to do it here? There are more than enough union thug bosses already.
