The New Tone Deafness: Public Unions ‘McVeigh In’ With OKC Imagery

Gateway Pundit links a NewsOK story:

A state senator today blasted a firefighter union television advertisement as “horrific and tasteless” for using images of the Oklahoma City bombing to make a case against his bill.

The advertisement by the International Association of Firefighters began airing today.

The first line of the ad:

“Firefighters and paramedics are sworn to saving lives and protecting property.”

Now, ‘protecting property’ could be construed to mean ‘protecting the value of the property’ without a lot of mental gymnastics. So how does that work, if the funding model for the union benefits bankrupts the community?
A public sector union is a mutiny, and merits all the affection afforded such.
