What Country is This Happening In?

Last night I wrote about the Wisconsin GOPers in the Senate working around the Fleebaggers and voting to end collective bargaining rights for public employees.

Well, that’s it then… the protesters can just give up, go home, and settle this at the next election, right? Nah, they’ve decided to prove to the country why they’ve had way too much power and should never have more.

This isn’t Egypt or Libya… is it?

A highly connected source in Wisconsin politics tells Fox Nation all hell is breaking loose at the state capitol.

“Republican leadership was considering calling in SWAT teams or the National Guard. Plans have been set. We have almost completely lost control of the capitol building. Protesters now control the first and second floors and are amassing outside the governor’s office. The third and fourth floors are under control but we’re not sure what side our security is on. Law enforcement is leaking evacuation plans to the protesters. An official tried to evacuate through a secret underground tunnel and was turned back by protesters. No one is safe. Protesters have broken down doors, broken windows, Democrats are helping them into the building and they’re building momentum.

They’re accomplishing nothing except offering demonstrate of the dangers of letting thugs and their third-world dictatorial goon tactics have too much control over anything.

If these were Tea Partiers you might even see a wildly negative story about their “childish, immature outburst” on the network news, and the person banging on the door smacking the sign with MLK’s name on it would most certainly be used as evidence of racism:


UPDATE: Sources say: “Police control the lobby to the Assembly Chambers and they think they are in a position to take back control of the Assembly Chambers. However, right now all they control is the lobby.”

Shh! Nobody wake up Stinky!


“New civility” update:

MADISON – The State Department of Justice confirms that it is investigating several death threats against a number of lawmakers in response to the legislature’s move to strip employees of many collective bargaining rights.

Among the threats the Justice Department is investigationg is one that was emailed to Republican Senators Wednesday night. Newsradio 620 WTMJ has obtained that email.

The following is the unedited email:

Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your familes will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks. Please explain to them that this is because if we get rid of you and your families then it will save the rights of 300,000 people and also be able to close the deficit that you have created. I hope you have a good time in hell. Read below for more information on possible scenarios in which you will die.

The psychobabble goes on. Don’t these people write a little like Al Qaeda?
