Whoa! Ohio Coal miners Fight Back Against Obama’s and Complicit Media’s “Absolute Lies” – Ask Him to Immediately Stop His False Ads (Video)
October 13, 2012
It has come to this. Coal Miners in Ohio had to hold a press conference in order to combat the lies that are coming from the Obama campaign and his minions in the media about a rally they took part in back in August for the Romney Campaign.
The Politico helped spread the regime’s disinformation on Sept 20:
If some of the coal miners standing with Mitt Romney in his new campaign ad don’t look happy, it’s probably because they’re not.
The campaign pulled the footage for its new “War on Coal” spot from a recent Ohio rally that some coal miners complained they were forced to take a day off without pay to attend.
RT TV also reported: Miners forced to attend Romney’s rally.
The coal miners from the American Energy Corp. Century Mine told Obama and the media to stop telling “absolute lies”. Obama’s TV ad essentially accuses miners of being props for Romney, but the miners were not forced to attend the Romney rally by the mine’s owner, Robert Murray.
Miners held a press conference to release a letter signed by over 500 miners saying they were not forced to attend Romney event. They wanted to attend because there is a war on coal and Obama is leading it. If Obama is re-elected he will put us all out of work permanently.

Partial transcript via Gateway Pundit:
“There are numerous false statements and absolute lies concerning our participation in this event, mostly started by a local ‘shock jock’ radio host,” the miners’ letter to Obama states. “Why would you (Obama) lie about the 500 working miners who have signed this letter? We, the employees of the Century Mine would request you immediately stop these false ads.”
This summer, Murray Energy Corp., parent company of the Beallsville mine, cut or relocated 56 workers with the closure of the Red Bird West mine near Brilliant. Murray also cut 29 mining jobs from The Ohio Valley Coal Co.’s Powhatan No. 6 Mine. All of this was done, Robert Murray said, because of Obama’s “war on coal.”
