A person is judged by the company they keep

In this case, it is public sector Unions and Communists. Solidarity indeed... From The Daily Caller:
Communists, socialists rallying support behind Madison protests
Communist and socialist groups � including the Maoist Revolutionary Communist Party, the Communist Party USA, Trotskyist Socialist Workers Party and the Democratic Socialists of America � are voicing their support for the public-sector unions protesting Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker�s plans to curtail their collective bargaining abilities.

The communist and socialist groups have parroted many of the union talking points being used by the unions on their websites and in their publications, such as those accusing the governor of trying to break their unions. They have also compared Walker to former Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak.

�Egypt, whose revolution has been a constant source of inspiration here, reflected in signs and chants � and Walker�s new nickname, Gov. Mubarak,� an article reads from the International Socialist Organization�s webzine.

The webzine also describes the unions� protest of Walker�s plans to force a vote on curtailing public-sector unions as �class war in Wisconsin� and as an affront to �the standard of living of working people.�

The formerly Soviet-backed Communist Party USA (CPUSA) echoed similar talking points.

�Using the deficit as a scare tactic, the right-wing corporate Republicans are on a fast track to defeat every initiative of the Obama administration, to destroy unions and public services at the federal, state and municipal level, and at the same time protect tax breaks for the richest few,� Joelle Fishman, chair of the CPUSA�s Political Action Commission, wrote in an article posted on her party�s website.
Seriously, if I were a Union official at this time, I would be distancing myself from these morons as fast as my backpedaling feet could take me. The public-sector Unions (the ones that take our tax dollars through the public-sector employees) are in the minority and they are being further marginalized with stories of lavish spending for officers and jack-squat for their constituents (except for unsustainable pay and benefits). They need to be a little more circumspect if they don't want to implode in the next few years...
