Obama Encourages Violence in Madison- Same Old Left Wing Intimidation

I published a post a few days ago about John Kasich’s attempts to curb government service union power in Ohio. Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin in on the same mission. Conservative analysts have long contended that excessively powerful unions representing teachers, welfare workers and other state and local employees have boosted pay and pensions across the US, laying the groundwork for the nation’s fiscal crisis. Other Conservatives claim that the groups are nothing more than Democrat party operatives. The Wisconsin Governor’s budget repair bill, an attempt to rein in a $3.6 billion deficit, has sparked days of violent demonstrations.

Before the expected vote on Walker’s proposal, all 14 Democratic senators fled the building, leaving Republicans one senator short of a quorum. The Senate adjourned without debating the bill. The biggest crowds of the week marched on the Capitol on Thursday, shouting down the state Senate president as he tried to start the session. Thousands more gathered outside, chanting slogans and yelling abuse well into the night. During the day, 15 school districts in the state closed because teachers were at the protests, claiming sick leave for the time they were there.

Walker’s plans are not that radical. His proposal would not apply to police, firefighters or state troopers. It would require all other state workers to pay half their pension costs and 12.6% of their healthcare coverage, shaving an estimated $330 million off a $3.6-billion deficit. It would also prevent public workers from receiving raises above the inflation rate unless the increases were put to a vote. Walker promises no layoffs of public workers should the measure pass.

A Washington Post columnist suggested Walker was like deposed Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak. State Senator Lena Taylor likened Walker to Adolf Hitler. Barack Obama accused the Wisconsin governor of an “assault on unions.” Several hundred protesters even showed up at Walker’s personal home.

School children were brought by the teachers.”Our teachers brought us here today,” said one student. Asked what they were protesting, she said: “I don’t know.” Another student said: “We’re trying to stop whatever this dude is doing.”

The real issue though is the sinister threat of violence that hangs over Wisconsin. Republican senators are not saying whether they are sleeping in their own houses, and are working with law enforcement to keep themselves and their families safe.

Stanley Kurtz has documented these tactics throughout Chicago in the late 1980s and 1990s in his book “Radical in Chief. Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism”. That gangs of activists are now showing up en masse, whether at people’s homes, or at state capitals, shouldn’t surprise anyone who has been paying attention, and certainly won’t surprise Kurtz who devotes an entire book to these new rules of politics.

Quin Hilyer writes an excellent article in The American Spectator. It refers to a column he wrote just after Obama’s election, entitled “Saul Alinsky Takes the White House”.

And, always, a few carefully calibrated street demonstrations, splashed with just the right headlines across the East Coast newspapers and captured by just the right camera angle on CBS News, will be used any time, on any issue, to make the point that civil unrest would be the price of resistance to the benevolent desires of the Obama regime.

He writes in his recent column-

These tactics come right out of Saul Alinsky’s playbook. These are dangerous times. The Obama left will not go quietly into that good night. And they will not let their targets sleep quietly at night. They want their targets — in the Wisconsin legislature, and at Speaker Boehner’s house, and, watch, in other places as well — to feel fear of the mob.

I have news for them. We don’t fear them. We think they are beneath contempt, these rabbles of rabid radicals. In America, we are above these hoodlums, and we transcend them. We are a society of ordered liberty, and we have endured worse than these pathetic paraders will muster.

They have Saul Alinsky. We have James Madison and George Washington. We win, they lose.

The good news is Tea Partiers are organising to protect The Wisconson Senate and the Republican senators from the left’s mobs. Great to see the silent majority no longer silent. In America, anyway.

  1. I live in Madison and have closely followed the events now underway at the Capitol. I agree with some of what you write and disagree with some as well. But I have a question for you. You indicate in the last sentence of your first paragraph “…has sparked days of violent demonstrations. ” Where are you getting that information?

    There have been very few, perhaps slightly more than a dozen or so, arrests surrounding 3 days of protests. Most of the arrests have been for disorderly conduct. Where are the violent demonstrations you describe taking place?


  2. On the absent Dem legislators:

    US Constitution Art. IV, section 2, clause iii; “No Person held to Service or Labour in one State, under the Laws thereof, escaping into another, shall, in Consequence of any Law or Regulation therein, be discharged from such Service or Labour, but shall be delivered up on Claim of the Party to whom such Service or Labour may be due.”

    But then, Democrats don’t have much respect for the Constitution anyway…..


  3. Walker’s proposal seems sensible if not even far too mild…

    The worst thing about teacher’s unions is they stop people, who we need excellent service from, from developing the habit of going the extra mile…


  4. Public employees have a right to collective bargaining. Here you have the real agenda of the Republican Tea Party under the guise of fiscal responsibility – anti- union, anti-women, anti-public broadcasting, anti-immigrant, anti-poor, anti-universal health, anti-contraceptives, anti-gay, anti-minority, anti-anything-but-Christian, anti-science, anti-environment, and anti-job.


  5. Lorenzo–horse shit. If you believe that, I’d suggest you buy shoes with Velcro fasteners, because you’re obviously too dim to tie your shoelaces.
    (either that, or simply a dishonest prick who’s terrified of taking responsibility for himself)


  6. “Public employees have a right to collective bargaining.”
    No they do not. Because their bargaining results in taxpayers having to fund their demands and taxpayers don’t have a seat at the table.
    Further, their demands are not constrained by the usual rules in business which require employee demands to take into consideration what the business can afford.
    Got it, Einstein?


  7. Sigh…it’s like trying to educate baboons. But here goes:
    Public sector unions meet with politicians and demand more money.
    Politicians agree to raise taxes to pay for it.
    Unions siphon a portion of the money back to politicians.
    Unions then support those politicians financially, using taxpayer’s money.
    Taxpayer input to the process: zero.
    That is not ‘bargaining’–it’s extortion.


  8. KG, you might as well try and teach the baboon Chinese; it has the same capacity to absorb Chinese as free market economics, or the bribery and extortion racket that exists between unions and leftist political parties.


  9. Can I take it that Lorenzo is some or all of the following:

    A Public sector employee, pro feminist metrosexual (anti male), pro corrupt and propagandist Main Stream Media, illegal immigrant, welfare recipient who has no intention of working, wants others to pay for his healthcare while not contributing himself, hedonistic promiscuous sodomite, anti democracy and/or anti white racist, amoral atheist, global warmist socialist, bludger.
