The union violence in Wisconsin has been well documented by many a blogger and citizen journalists. The reports from the state capitol in the aftermath of Wednesday's vote read like some report from a European capital:
"We have almost completely lost control of the Capitol building. We now only control the 3rd and 4th floors. Teachers Unions are sending out robo calls and emails to all their members, asking them to get to the capitol NOW. We know this as a fact. Democrat Senators are opening windows and letting protesters in. Door’s have been ripped off their hinges. Next 6-8 hours will determine who controls the capitol. If we lose control, the assembly can’t meet tomorrow. Quasi-military forces are the only option to win back control of building. They are very close to being called in. Law enforcement are leaking legislators whereabouts to protesters. No one is safe. Today they escorted State Senators across the street via an underground tunnel. It’s top secret, but protesters were waiting for them. National Guard may be called in….plans have been set. We are running out of options."
Death threats to conservatives - from Wisconsin legislature to Rep.s Bachman, King, etal. - have been rampant without a word from either the President or the media. The violent tactics, from Lenin to Alinsky, have been demonstrably adopted by today's progressives. You see it in Greece, London, Paris, San Francisco, and anywhere else the left protests liberty and freedom.
Remember, this is all because the proposal in Wisconsin would give state workers slightly more rights than federal workers currently enjoy. Their pay is not being cut. No one will be laid off. But, they will have to contribute something (that is much less than just about any other employee in America) to the health and retirement benefits. How unfair! That surely deserves setting dumpsters on fire and throwing Molotov cocktails, doesn't it?
Do you still doubt Glenn Beck, who last year predicted that Athens would be coming to the United States in 2011?
