Half of Capitol Controlled by Protesters, 'No One Is Safe,' National Guard Option 'On the Table'
FoxNation.com ^ | March 10 | Staff

Posted on 03/10/2011 6:46:33 AM PST by JesseWatters

A highly connected source in Wisconsin politics tells Fox Nation all hell is breaking loose at the state capitol. “Republican leadership was considering calling in SWAT teams or the National Guard. Plans have been set. We have almost completely lost control of the capitol building. Protesters now control the first and second floors and are amassing outside the governor’s office."

Why are the state troopers not doing something about this? Are they that deep in the union pocket?

This is a coup d’etat. If WI falls, the Communists will be so emboldened that OH, MI and the entire nation is in peril.

Yhe tipping point is here. This is worth a CWII ping.

Well, the liberals always strive to make America more like Europe. Now, we've got the civil servant riots and government shut downs.

Next up - really fast trains.

Then special workcamps for problem groups. They probably saved FDRs blueprints.

'Wisconson'? I don't think any of them...

On the other hand, the University of Wisconsin, Madison, is right near there. Probably loser college kids are joining in the 'fun'.

I think some dispersion is needed before things get more out of control. This is what you get when lawyers can sue the private for defending themselves while the government and secret police kgb public “unions” and organs can vote with their powers a ticket out of prison to rape private business.

Hitler was apparently a closet communist who needed body guards, and he thus appealed to right wingers in feign to get protection from his competitors. This is what we see in how the left is now wooing cops benefits.

These are not unions, they are a secret crimial organ.

Nope, It ain't like Libya. The Libyans are fighting to over throw a dictator.
It is like Greece and the other other socialist country when the government attempts to withhold our money from them.
if the Republicans hold in Wisconsin, my guess is this is just the beginning. Rioting in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan and others will follow shortly. The mobs ain't happy.

One interesting thing missing is Cuba. The dictator and his brother have been in there 50 years, but there is no protests and the media will do a deer in the headlights stare if mentioned. Venezuala and Iran are two others.

Thug politics.

This is no different that what we see in third-world shitholes.

Congratualtion, union thugs and leftist jackals. You’ve effectively turned this once great nation into just another Guatemala or Haiti. Happy?

NOw you are starting to understand the true agenda of Obama - anarchy, chaos, overthrow of our Nation - by any means necessary. The tempo is picking up. There is not much time to get the work done so that there will not be another election in America.

It occurs to me that Wisconsin equals Greece. Just look to the problems in Greece for all the nonsense that will/can occur. Wisconsin has devolved to that point.

remember, Richard is a professional terrorist. He honed his terrorist skills as President of the UMWA terror across Southwest Virginia in 1988/89.

He fears no reaction, he owns the courts, the police and the state police.

The laws have changed however. We now have laws against terrorist actions. Unfortunately we have no one to enforce those laws.

Dear Unions,

Please get it started. For years many of us have tried to wake Americans up to the need to settle your problem once and for all and we can't get them to listen to us. Thank you for what you are doing. Maybe soon we can permanently solve this problem.

Earlier these Wisconsin protesters wanted to pretend it was 1968 again. In that same spirit, I’d like the governor to send in some retro Riot Squads with hickory night sticks.

Obama has just begun his conference on Bullying. Breaking News.

Madison needs to enact a curfew. That would send the locals home and the visitors should get a room.

The university is just down State Street which runs from the U right up to the state capitol building. On practically any day, except for a few days in summer, the street is packed with students or young people. Undoubtedly, this issue is perfect for various student idlers and troublemakers to fill their normally empty schedules. Smoke dope, start fights, and/or protest something. All three if possible.

Time to declare a State of Emergency.

If the police, swat of NG won’t step up or follow orders...then it is time for the militias to rally.

Wow...just wow...

The driving force behind this mob is the National Demonic-Rat party.
These unions and the forced deduction of these dues are the life blood of the Democrat Party. These dues are deducted from all the members even if they do not support the Democrat Party.

The party leadership knows they must win this fight against the Republicans or this will be the beginning of the end of the Democrat Party. This is just the beginning of union thuggary. It is going to get much worse, not better.

No money to the government, no paychecks for parasites.

Here’s what made this issue so much more difficult in WI: a simple matter of logistics.

Most state capitols are in relatively sleepy towns, that at the least are not full to the brim with rich hippie-wannabes who can afford to take time off from work and enjoy protesting.

Madison, WI is unique in its per capita looneytoons and their proximity to the statehouse. Had the statehouse been almost anywhere else in WI, most if not all of this crappola would not have happened.
