Skip to comments."Peaceful Mob" Corners and Detains Wisconsin GOP Senator Glenn Grothman; Saved By Dem Rep Hulsey
Posted on 03/02/2011 7:58:56 AM PST by mainstreetradical.com
There is an underlying message that continues to spew from the mainstream media that the union protests in Wisconsin are a peaceful grassroots effort to support downtrodden public employees. This is not necessarily the case when you now have an element in the crowd that are more anarchists and agitators. Any doubts take a look at the video below. It is longer than those that we usually post but it does a good job of illustrating what the protesters are about. Imagine the media explosion that would happen if this were a Tea Party instead of a group of communists and anarchists.
Wisconsin Senator Glenn Grothman found himself under assault and eventually detained against his will by the mob of protesters. I have known many union members and this is not typical behavior; it seems that the Wisconsin protests organized by the DNC and the Obama campaign have morphed into more of an anarchist and radical left rally. You will see some of their favorite tactics on display with chanting, intimidation, and one protester who continuously blows a whistle to add to the constant din of chanting Shame, F*** You, and peaceful protest, as if by saying it it somehow makes it so, when in reality this mob looks like a pack of jackals with a fresh piece of meat.
The bottom line here is that a lawmaker was detained against his will and intimidated by an angry mob. That should not happen in America.
Sometimes democrat fanatics do that, you know.
What are WI laws regarding firearms? I would not walk near the building without packing heat.
I am posting from an iPad and cannot get the link for the video. If anyone can grab it from the site and put it here I’d appreciate it.
That journalist was raped, not merely beaten. This mob in Wisconsin was formed out of a more or less Christian society; the mob in Egypt was formed out of an Islamic society. IMO, that's the only reason Sen. Grothman is still alive.
“no issue” for concealed carry. http://www.wisconsinconcealedcarry.com/
However you can carry openly I believe, although open-carrying citizens have been harrassed and detained for carrying in a few well-publicized cases in WI.

Mahoney: Officers aren’t the “palace guard”
Frustrated by a lack of explanation for the clamping down of access to the Capitol building, Dane County Sheriff Dave Mahoney said his deputies yesterday were pulled from a duty to keep people from entering the Capitol.
“Over the last two days we have placed those law enforcement officers in the position of being palace guards,” Mahoney said.
Mahoney said an entire day went by yesterday before the Department of Administration offered a reason for locking doors to the building. The public has only been allowed into the Capitol through the King Street entrance since yesterday.
Mahoney said his officers have been at the Capitol to ensure public safety and for people on both sides to have freedom of speech and Assembly, not to restrict those rights. He said he’s “never been prouder than these past two weeks” of his officers.
Mahoney said he believes law enforcement and public safety is being jeopardized by the restrictions.
“I am confident having talked with our staff on the Capitol grounds that we still have a peaceful demonstration. But it’s crucial that individuals have a voice and access to their lawmakers,” Mahoney said.
The deputies had been told that the doors would be open at 8 a.m. yesterday, but that didn’t happen and the officers didn’t find out why until the afternoon, Mahoney said.
“When asked to stand guard at the doors that duty was turned over to the Wisconsin State Patrol because our deputies would not stand and be palace guards,” Mahoney said. “I refused to put deputy sheriffs in a position to be palace guards.”
Gee where were the police?
Oh nevermind. They are with the protesters.
“Hundreds of police, many ordered to disperse the demonstrators, instead joined them inside the protester-occupied Statehouse. We have been ordered by the legislature to kick you all out at 4:00 today, an officer announced to the crowd, but we know whats right from wrong. We will not be kicking anyone out, in fact, we will be sleeping here with you!
Guess it’s time to call in the National Guard.
An old saying seems to apply here:"You can take the animal out of the jungle, but you can't take the jungle out of the animal?"
I'd hate to have been caught in the middle of this mob of haters.
It will be. They've been consistently ratcheting up the violence of late. Their Alinskian rules of engagement dictate that they not only never back down, but that they redouble the intimidation and the violence in the face of anything short of total and unconditional surrender. As it stands today, they haven't left much room short of killing. And once that starts, all bets are off. The thing that should really stand out for all of us is that the law has done nothing and will do nothing. With everything that implies.
War is coming. There is no reason now to suppose that it wont't happen here.
I am also watching on an iPad. I just went to the YouTube app and put in Grothman’s name.
Link for the video of the assault on Sen. Grothman. I might add that Sen. Grothman is MY Senator, a good guy, and he doesn’t deserve this. I think he should wear body armor next time he goes to work! Disgraceful.
And don’t anybody be too supportive of the Dem Assemblyman who escorted him. He continued to whip up the crowd against our Governor.
Mahoney is a fool. He should be fired.
Half the country want to be free and have the country wants to own slaves. We've been here before, and the result isn't pretty.
“I am posting from an iPad and cannot get the link for the video.’
There’s an app for that
This is obviously his fault...he did not march into the state Capitol holding a megasized gavel and a cabal of like minded legislators marching with him.
On a serious note, I could not get to the second minute of the twelve minute video....my blood pressure was seriously affected.
Translation: "We are sympathetic to the union thugs, and therefore refuse to do our job."
Leftists are like your pesky little brother riding in the backseat of the car when you were a kid. You know - extending her finger within a fraction of an inch and taunting, “I’m not touching you - I’m not touching you!”
When you do finally get tired of it and smack them they wail, “Mom!” Cowardly little drones.
If the Tea Party were doing this, you can be sure we would have been arrested and everyone of us kicked out LAST week.
And our press would have been calling for Tea Party heads by now.
This just shows how much we have going against us.
“Guess its time to call in the National Guard.”
Obama sent them to Iraq.
Just under 1,000 Wisconsin Guard Soldiers and Airmen are currently serving on active duty - mostly in Iraq including about 300 Madison-based Soldiers from the 1st Battalion, 147th Aviation Regiment and 400 members of the 724th Engineer Battalion from several northern Wisconsin communities,

Wisconsin’s new commander in chief addresses deployed Guard troops
Date: January 3, 2011
Wisconsin National Guard Public Affairs Office
The first Wisconsin National Guard troops to be addressed by their new commander in chief stayed up until 2:30 a.m. Iraq time for the privilege.
Back in Wisconsin, Governor-Elect Scott Walker spoke with deployed members of the 724th Engineer Battalion - known as “Task Force Badger” in Iraq - during halftime of the Jan. 1 Rose Bowl game featuring the University of Wisconsin Badgers against the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs. The “Halftime with the Troops” event at the East Side Club in Madison included some military family members, and began with a short video of the 724th cheering on the Badgers.
“We cheer our Badgers deployed in Iraq,” Walker said during the satellite feed to a room filled with 724th Soldiers. “God bless you - we can’t thank you enough.”
Walker also led the room in two cheers for the 724th: “We love you, God bless you,” and “Go, Badgers.”
Lt. Col. David O’Donahue, commander of the 724th, thanked Walker on behalf of the 870 Soldiers - many from units outside of the Wisconsin National Guard - who make up Task Force Badger.
“The guys behind me put it on the line every day,” O’Donahue said. “They have probably the toughest job in Iraq - road clearance. But we’re doing it right and looking forward to coming home in a few months.”
The bad news: the vast majority of Americans don't live anywhere near that kind of lifestyle. No land. No knowledge. No helpful neighbor. No place to get chickens, goats, or seeds.
The preppers will do fine. The other 95% of the population? Look out!!
As I see it, it's not all that different today from the days of the First American Revolution.
Roughly 1/3 of the colonials wanted to remain British subjects.
Roughly 1/3 of the colonials didn't care one way or the other.
Roughly 1/3 of the colonials wished to live as free men, and passionately so.
Roughly 3% were actively engaged at any one time in the fight for freedom. I'm a proud three-percenter. If that be treason then I invite our aspiring slave mastes to make the most of it. So now, 235 years later, here is what we face:
It is your mind that they want you to surrender-all those who preach the creed of sacrifice, whatever their tags or their motives, whether they demand it for the sake of your soul or of your body, whether they promise you another life in heaven or a full stomach on this earth. Those who start by saying: It is selfish to pursue your own wishes, you must sacrifice them to the wishes of others-end up by saying: It is selfish to uphold your convictions, you must sacrifice them to the convictions of others.These are the enemies of civilization - killers without conscience , preaching a phony morality of human sacrifice and servitude in the service of enslaving you to their own sick will to power. In researching my book, one of the recurring main themes is that monsters such as these aren't merely content with slavery and slaughter: they demand your applause while they are doing it. If there is anything more monstrous, more deserving of complete and utter extinction, I don't know what it is.
This much is true: the most selfish of all things is the independent mind that recognizes no authority higher than its own and no value higher than its judgment of truth. You are asked to sacrifice your intellectual integrity, your logic, your reason, your standard of truth-in favor of becoming a prostitute whose standard is the greatest good for the greatest number.
If you search your code for guidance, for an answer to the question: What is the good?-the only answer you will find is The good of others. The good is whatever others wish, whatever you feel they feel they wish, or whatever you feel they ought to feel. The good of others is a magic formula that transforms anything into gold, a formula to be recited as a guarantee of moral glory and as a fumigator for any action, even the slaughter of a continent. Your standard of virtue is not an object, not an act, not a principle, but an intention. You need no proof, no reasons, no success, you need not achieve in fact the good of others-all you need to know is that your motive was the good of others, not your own. Your only definition of the good is a negation: the good is the non-good for me.
Your code-which boasts that it upholds eternal, absolute, objective moral values and scorns the conditional, the relative and the subjective-your code hands out, as its version of the absolute, the following rule of moral conduct: If you wish it, its evil; if others wish it, its good; if the motive of your action is your welfare, dont do it; if the motive is the welfare of others, then anything goes.
--Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged - from John Galt's speech
This is the depth of perversion into which our Western civilization has sunk. This is the nature of our enemies. The time for apologies, for self-effacement, for Mr. Nice Guy is over. We owe these monsters nothing. Nothing except their own extinction.
Union zombies trying to get Glen’s brain. Dem assemblyman unmolested.
Sorry, I wasn’t aware...i’m not from WI. I had no idea.
God bless them all,and I pray they come home soon,safe and sound.
Can’t a neighboring state,working in unison with Gov Walker’s office,offer up their Guard to help out? Something must be done. It’s gone way beyond freedom of speech,and no longer a mere redress of grievances. This is tantamount to insurrection.
