Supporting freedom overseas, but not at home

  The president supports a liberation movement overseas, one in which local labor unions played a key roll.

 Meanwhile, labor unions are being crushed here at home and Washington politicians are largely hostile to citizens standing up for their rights.

Instead I’m talking about events that happened two and three decades ago.
