COMING SOON: WISCONSIN'S KENT STATE MOMENT. Look at the faces of the evil our state is confronted with:
Der Führer: Scott Walker
(take that fucking flag pin off, traitor... people died for that flag)
Shanda for the Goyim: Stephanie Marquis
(mit der Kommandant)
You don't have to look at these photos for long to know that blood is about to be shed. It may be a re-living of Kent State, dead bodies and all, or a repeat of the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago. But as Scott Walker sees his Presidential aspirations slipping away because of the actions of some old hippies singing protest songs in the state capitol rotunda, it's a sure thing that blood is going to flow.
Our "governor" (such a polite term) is too dumb to have read the US Constitution and to understand that he can't require permits for a peaceable assembly of people seeking redress from their government. But as to his enablers, like Capitol Police "Chief" (such a polite term) David Erwin and Wisconsin Department of Administration spokeswoman Stephanie Marquis, they surely know better. Kinda makes one wonder how much money they're receiving from their enablers, like the Koch brothers and ALEC, to allow the unspeakable to happen against their own country and its citizens.
Because they are all aware of what the endgame here must be, and they will fail in their duty to stop it before the bloodshed begins.
You don't have to like a bunch of ancient hippies gathered in their statehouse singing old warhorses like "Joe Hill." But you had better be goddamned sure of your right to prevent them from doing it, because the First Amendment to the Constitution spells out their privilege as Americans to do just about anything short of perpetrating violence to seek redress from their government. Hundreds of thousands of Americans have died so that we could enjoy those freedoms.
What's particularly depressing to me, reading the comments sections on news articles devoted to the latest Capitol uprising, is how many Wisconsinites of the GOP persuasion don't seem to understand that they have become Hitler's "Good Germans" and are winking while their own rights are systematically stripped away by the sinister cabal of the Kochs and ALEC, who value them only as slave labor (a new investigative piece in UrbanMilwaukee.com underlines what I've been saying all along--jobs are now beginning to trickle back into Wisconsin, but they're all slave labor jobs that Walker promised to his benefactors after he'd busted the unions and made Wisconsin safe for the endless exploitation of its talented workforce). The protesters at the Capitol have the temerity to stand up for the America we grew up in--an America where a hardworking man or woman had a good shot at the American dream. That flies directly in the face of everything that Walker and his financiers, the Kochs and Diane Hendricks, believe in. And the long and short of it is, just as in the "old days" of the '68 convention and Kent State, people are going to die (or at least have their heads busted open) because of it.
God bless those old hippies, and anyone else with the balls to stand up to Walker's palace guard. In the end, you were the real Americans. Mea culpa.
