Walker opponents take to Wisconsin’s waters with protest flotillas
Wisconsin has a new protest movement, and it’s on the water.
Protesters took advantage of one of the state’s many bodies of water to move their “Recall Walker” message a little closer to the subject of the protest this weekend. After learning that Wisconsin’s first lady Tonette Walker would host a garden party on Saturday, July 2, a group of nearly a dozen people formed a flotilla that set sail to the shore of Lake Mendota off the governor’s Maple Bluff executive residence.
Saturday’s protest was organized very quickly, says Arthur Kohl-Riggs, who organized the event through the “Shit Scott Walker Is Doing To My State” Facebook page he operates. He learned about the party Friday night and created a Facebook event Saturday morning.
Kohl-Riggs was pleasantly surprised that the turnout included people who had not met prior to the protest. The flotilla consisted of two kayaks, two canoes and a paddleboat.
People keep using the terms “thugs” and “goons” to refer to the union protestors. I’d call them “aging hippies trying to relive their youth.”
Watch the video and you’ll laugh at how pathetic they are. If these teachers don’t realize how counter-productive their actions are then I feel sorry for their students.
BTW – You see more boats in McCovey Cove for every SF Giants game.
