Skip to comments.More Tea Party Violence and Racism: Milwaukee
Posted on 08/27/2011 2:47:17 PM PDT by EricTheRed_VocalMinority
Oh wait, that's not the Tea Party. It's Obama-supporting Democrat-voting* public union teacher protesters -- again.
Yes, the Democrat-media complex still smear the Tea Party and anti-Obama conservative Americans as vitriolic and racist, and most recently "the real enemy" who can "go straight to hell." Meanwhile in the real world, actual vitriol and (by the left's own standards) racism occurred at the hands of union protesters in Milwaukee, Wisconsin both Thursday and Friday.
As reported by Milwaukee's local Fox-TV affiliate:
Vandals super glued the locks of several doors and a parking gate at Messmer Preparatory School in Milwaukee. School officials believe the people responsible for the vandalism were protesting the visit of Gov. Scott Walker Friday afternoon.
Gov. Walker was expected to arrive at 1 p.m. to speak to kindergarten and first grade students about reading.
Late Thursday night, school officials were informed that building alarms had been set off. Then, Friday morning, they discovered that nine locks on the property's exterior doors had been sealed with glue. The doors tampered with included a parking gate, several doors to the building and even a church building door.
That was Thursday. Then on Friday, a throng of protesters converged on the school while reviled Republican Governor Scott Walker was inside. The protesters shouted such intolerant things as for the school to get out of their neighborhood (specifically Christians -- Messmer is a Catholic school).
This is bone-chilling. Here is a throng of left-wing Democrats intimating children while at school and shouting that they should get out of town. And it's the Tea Party that's compared to the KKK and Jim Crow-era bigots? Puh-lease!
So, where does the racism part come in? Well, the president and CEO of the Messmer schools, Br. Bob Smith, is black. One of the principals of the three schools (who I don't believe was present at the protest) is also black. And, at least according to these online images -- I couldn't find ethnic data on their website -- most of Messmer's student body are black or another ethnic minority. When Brother Bob came out of the school (as you will see in the video below), he was quite obnoxiously harrassed. (You might say he was given the John Lewis treatment. Hey, who's to say Brother Bob wasn't spat upon by a racist white public union teacher protester?)
Ed Morrissey at Hot Air links to this video below and goes on to explain that Messmer is a choice school, it operates outside the clutches of public teacher union and boasts a +85% graduation rate. By alarmingly stark contrast the public school graduation rate of blacks and Hispanics, is 49% and 54%, respectively. No wonder Wisconsin's left-wing Democrats hate this school and seek to demonize and eliminate it!
It got ugly on the street outside the facility, which is no surprise, since Messmer is a choice school an alternative to the union-gripped public school system. Its an alternative that sends 85% of its high-school graduates to college. Its also no surprise that choice schools threaten the unions power in the state, which gave them extra added incentive to protest Walkers visit and to attempt to intimidate Messmer staff while doing so. The video provides a jarring disconnect between the well-behaved students on the inside and Brother Bobs explanation of teaching positive discipline and self-control to the self-indulgent nastiness taking place on the sidewalk outside.
By the way, other than local Wisconsin affiliates, have any mainstream news media outlets covered this blatant videotaped exhibit of violence, vandalism, and racism? Of course not. It doesn't fit the liberal lie that it's the Tea Party that's violent, destructive and racist and that it's liberals/Democrats who aren't. Spread stories like this far and wide, dear readers. The real documentable truth is out there; more people just need to see it.
*How do I know these violent protesters were Obama-supporting Democrats? Believe me, I know.
Glue the locks on their union hall.
They’ll just get union workers to unglue them at cost to the taxpayers.
The very same ones who damaged the locks to begin with.
Every Catholic at FR should click the top link and check out the video on the page.
It will make you proud. :)
Saw this at HA earlier. Wonderful school terrorized by selfish spoiled brats who weren’t the students but union members demanding they be allowed to continue to raid the public treasury and indoctrinate our kids.
The worthless ones!
"All opposition must be stamped into the ground."
There was a time when I thought unions and their members were noble and necessary. My eyes have been opened so wide it hurts.
thanks for the ping...school choice works very well, catholic schools are the best and some public school teachers are childish, immature, greedy and violent. I wonder in what religious order is the brother, Brother Bob Smith?
Yes, its been an eye-opener. And it has spit families. I went to Madison for Palin’s speech and it was mind-boggling.
Interesting, Catholic schools standing up against unions. I think the haters will not add this to this list of links
“One of the first things you notice about Messmer is its incredibly well-behaved and polite students” —> the clergyman is correct. Compare these good students to that impolite white dude who tells the woman “we don’t want you here”
Unions have long ago lost their character as benefiting, as such, the public and society. This goes for all ‘public’ employee unions including teachers, law enforcement, firemen, etc. These social wolves have gone far adrift from the needs experienced by my mother in the early 30s. Those were tearful days.
so, how will Wisconsin vote in Jan?
