Jim Hightower Speaks to Union Supporters in Austin

Jim Hightower, former Texas Agricultural Commissioner and now a progressive populist columnist and radio commentator, spoke to a crowd of supporters of the public sector union workers in Wisconsin whose cause and plight have riveted the country’s attention for 2 weeks now. I captured the entire six or so minute speech on video.

I was well back in the crowd and getting a clear shot of him as he spoke was challenged by the many hand-lettered signs that people brought to the rally. But at least you get to hear what he said.

Yes, he did. He said “Let’s get nekkid.”
