Skip to comments.Wisconsin's Governor is Not Hitler [Washington Post Desparately Attempts to Cover for the Unions]
Posted on 02/20/2011 6:22:06 AM PST by grey_whiskers
Rachel Maddow on Thursday night called the war over public-sector union law in Wisconsin an "existential fight for the Democratic Party." Overstatement? Maybe, but it's tame compared with the despicable slogans that some of the union protesters have been injecting into the debate.
I must note that most of the protesters are carrying signs with civil slogans on them -- "Care about educators like they care for your child," for example. I don't think the unions or most of their supporters endorse the views expressed in some of the other placards. And, even if they did, the practical merits of the issue should be kept separate from the rhetoric that surrounds it, as in any debate.
Yet, just as the offensive behaviors of some Tea Partyers, birthers and others on the right deserve to be condemned, so, too, do some of the things that the mass protests in Wisconsin have dredged up. Here is a sampling of the some of the signs that the Wisconsin GOP says it has found among the protesters:

The comments from the left are particularly instructive!
If I were in Wiscinson, I would be standing two inches from Taliban Mullah Scott Walker's face and spitting into it.
How you like them apples, Sparky?
The first thing both Hitler and Lenin did on seizing power was to destroy the trade unions.
The teahadist Brownshirt cadres have taken this lesson to heart.
Ein Volk! Ein Reich! Ein Beck!
So once a day or more every Jewish/zionist columnist
has to write a story about Hitler or the holocaust. It's just the case.
What happened to the rabbi's organization that wanted such not to be mentioned again. Except by themselves, apparently, asevery time Israel pulls some outrage, as yestrday with the Iranian ships, we get another bunch.
Something on one placard, in one demonstration in one state. And wowie, we have to get a whine.
Yes, I noticed. *spit*
I have to believe that “Care for educators the way they care for your child” is unconscious self-parody. “You don’t give a FReep about my child, and I don’t give a FReep about you.” (signed) “35 years of homeschooling”
She isn’t even a good liar.
They invoked Godwin’s Law right off the bat. That means they’ve lost the argument.
Took some great pics I posted here Diana..Not sure if you were at the rally, but it was nice to see so many Tea Party Patriots standing firm at the Capitol
“Day of Rage?!?”
The public unions are in a rage, thus the Hitler references, the invading our Capitol building and vandalizing it, and the getting doctors to write excusess for fake illnesses for the teachers who skipped school
in Nazi Germany, the Government became the union. They dictated wages and working conditions.
Kind of like what is going on here, without the neat uniforms.
“The first thing both Hitler and Lenin did on seizing power was to destroy the trade unions.”
The second thing they did was murder the intelligentsia.
Not sure what the down side is.
While posting on another thread, a thought came to mind about Organizing For America (OFA) involvement in the demonstrations. Does anyone else find it ironic that all of this starts up once Gibbs and Axlerod leave the administration to kick off the Post Turtle’s 2012 campaign?
Yep. Trashy people.
Someone posted a picture of a sign where the word ‘about’ was misspelled not once, but twice as ‘abut’. LOL My first-grade daughter would have caught that!
If anyone wants to ask either one of us why we don’t have our kids in public schools, we can point to that example and say, “Here’s your sign.” :)
No, I had to work. I’m one of those ‘dependable, yet expendable taxpayers’ supporting the slackers and their right to shut down our state government. *Rolleyes*
But, I set one of the computers up at work to a live feed of the ‘festivities’ and we kept hoping to see some police clubing hippies...but that never materialized, LOL!
Thanks for all those pics Milwaukee Guy!
Organizing for America is Obama’s Brownshirt Gang.
#15 - in the background, on the right -
“Milwaukee open for business
All others will be shot”
.... as a quote from Scott Walker’s picture .... usual Leftist classlessness, I see .... will Michelle be complaining about this incivility??
This whole situation is great family fun. The “educators” don’t seem to realize that they’ve violated the one essential element of their “deal” with the public: “You WILL have somewhere to leave your kids every day.” I think they’re within three or four days of districts calling up everyone on the sub list and giving anyone who’s not in the classroom a pink slip. Superintendants, with their immense salaries and bennies, can’t afford to enrage the public, either.
[CLICK] "We have been making history all week and into the weekend. On Saturday, union members and our many friends turned out all over the state to protest the refusal by key Wisconsin leaders to act like leaders." ~~~~~~~~~~
[Feb 22, 2011] "In a show of solidarity, AFSCME and SEIU members are again scheduled to wear "Together We Can!" sticker buttons at work that day. The stickers feature that slogan along with a green (AFSCME) and purple (SEIU) "unity fist bump" logo. Union members also wore the stickers on Feb. 10, which was the opening day of bargaining." [Oregon] State's economic proposals coming Feb. 22; wear your stickers!
Yep. They're saying you should abandon your children to go parading around shrieking at the public to give you money they don't have.
Yes, the Weatherman's 1969 rampage in Chicago is now the template for political discourse in this country.

Issa should investigate OFA.
Okay, Mr. Stromburger, delineate the 5 W's you purportedly learned in your commie journalism classes.....who, what, where, why and when are the offenses you charge to the Tea Partyers.....NAME THE PARTICULARS!
....and read my tag line, you improper Compostian....warped minds really DO think alike.
Have noticed very few American Flags at the Public Service Union gatherings and protests. Gee, I wonder what country these people support??? Sounds a like “Obama” communist blabber to me. All public service unions should be disbanded, period!!!
