Richard Trumka is at it again. Via the Labor Union Report, the AFL-CIO is attacking 10th amendment activists for their “cultish beliefs” in constitutional government.

Their partners in slime? Soros-funded Think Progress, of course:

Most cults are based in some sort of skewed spiritual vision or the worship of a charismatic leader, but there is a re-emerging cult that bows down at the feet of the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Many of them want to bring their cultish beliefs to the halls of Congress and are running for election this fall.

They’re called the “tenthers” and they say federal laws and rules like the minimum wage, Medicare, Social Security, unemployment insurance, the Department of Education, even child labor laws and a laundry list of other federal laws and programs are unconstitutional.

Their rationale—irrationale would be a better word—is that if a federal power is not specifically spelled out in the Constitution, well the government doesn’t have it, according to their view of the 10th amendment.

Yep, states rights and federalism are now “cultish beliefs” — and Big Labor lets us know how it really feels about our Founding Fathers.

It’s the cultish worship of the State that has sown such disastrous results for America.

On November 2, the big government witches and warlocks will be cast out. Can’t come soon enough.
