UMW In BizarroWorld

The United Mine Workers has endorsed Southwest Virginia's leading environmentalist for Congress in Virginia's 9th District.

Brings to mind the Judenräte of Nazi Europe.

As with the UMW and its relationship with coal miners in Southwest Virginia, so too were the Judenräte there seeing for the well-being of their fellow Jews as they were systematically lined up before the death squads' cattle cars.  All were offered reassurances just before they were exterminated.

The UMW is to coal what Adam Czerniaków was to the Warsaw Ghetto.

Anthony Flaccavento endorsed by the United Mine Workers.

For the love of God.
