The Republican governor, who appeared before about 300 people at a public policy breakfast at Chicago’s Union League Club, saw his speech interrupted by union-backed Occupy Chicago protesters for about six minutes before they left the event.
About 50 people who purchased tickets to the breakfast began chanting minutes into Walker’s remarks, reciting slogans such as “Union busting. It’s disgusting.” And “We are the 99 percent.” They also criticized Walker for being allowed free speech rights while blaming Mayor Rahm Emanuel for Chicago police arrests of 300 protesters who refused to leave Grant Park after an 11 p.m. curfew.The rudeness is sickening. I don’t understand how the protesters imagine that they will win support from anyone that way. They do seem driven to preventing Walker from ever speaking, but in fact, he did speak after they left. He said:
“The bottom line is, no matter how loud you shout, the facts are the facts. The facts are that our reforms have worked and continue to work in the state of Wisconsin.”
“Freedom of speech for me but not for thee”
This wasn’t some FOX News ringers. This wasn’t some anarchist fringe. This was OWS.
They were sooooo proud of themselves they made this video and posted it on YouTube.
Imagine you are an undecided voter. You don’t hate Scott Walker but you don’t love him either. You’re not a Tea Bagger or a Smelly Hippie.
When you watch this video, would you more likely be thinking “Wow, they sure showed that Walker guy!” or “What a bunch of assholes?”
If that doesn’t convince you, think of this – what turned you off first, Obama or his Obot supporters?
BTW – If I was a Republican ratfucker I’d be yelling “Go for it!”
