Posted on 03/18/2011 8:35:20 AM PDT by Qbert
The office of Sen. Dan Kapanke (R-La Crosse) said the senator has been subjected to damage of personal property and has received threatening statements in the wake of mass protests in recent weeks over Gov. Scott Walkers budget-repair bill.
Kapanke have been unavailable, but an aide to Kapanke says that windows on Kapanke's car were broken in Madison and the senator's wife found nails strewn on the driveway of their home.
According to Rose Smyrski of Kapankes staff:
Nails were scattered on his driveway twice last week. The incidents were reported to the La Crosse Police Department.
Also, Kapanke'ss windshield was damaged on March 9 after the Senate voted on the budget-repair bill. Kapanke was advised by Capitol police he would not be able to reach his car parked on the Capitol Square because of protesters. A state trooper moved the car, and when Kapanke went to his car a short time later, he found a hole in the windshield. He drove home to La Crosse. He reported the damage on Wednesday to Capitol police.

Rocks with the Union Label.
And O calls TEA Party members “terrorists.”
Return the favor to the dem senators... but up the ante...
The “civility” hypocrites in the Democrat Party and the MSM have not said one word about this or the personal threats and death threats that others have received.
“If Your Tires Have Been Flatted, Thank A Teacher”
And some people want to know why conservatives “foolishly” cling to guns rather than rely on the cops for protection. What is one supposed to do when the police union is complicit in the crime?
Tolerating this level of lawlessness, by the "public safety" segment can't be tolerated. Their professionalism has broken down, and validated the fear of the inevitable corruption that results when "unions" are coddled and allowed to run wild.
Time to fire the entire bunch and start over.
Can there be any clearer justification for the elimination of public employee unions?
Our duty to protect ourselves is only loaned to organized police and fire departments. We can always take it back.
Sometimes it's clearly our duty to take it back.
Time for an ultimatum.
Where is the local city council on this?
What is their position?
“Return the favor to the dem senators... but up the ante...”
No- then we sink down to their gutter level.
Use all means allowed under the law to protetct oneself in self-defense.
So he was a libertarian and now he wants big government?
If things in Madison are as bad as they appear, Those two statements are mutually incompatible!
“We are seeing a pattern now on the left when things do not go their way that is very disturbing.”
If this course is not changed, it will end with show trials, labor camps, and people being stuffed in ovens. Don’t think it can happen here? That’s what your average German shopkeeper thought in 1927.
Is it just me or is summary execution too good for the leftist union thugs and their games of mayhem?
what does it take? someone getting killed or seriously injured?
The local city council in Madistan, Wisconsin?
It is to laugh. The entire county is run by progressives and the city is Marxist.
In the past, leftists were a small, vocal minority pushing for policy measures that advanced their agenda of eventually achieving a socialist state. They feel like they have achieved dominant status at this point. They are not a majority of the people but they now control all “commanding heights” of the nation except for the military (and they are working on that one.) When the dwindling majority fights back to preserve its freedom, the leftists now are not pushing the existing order to change, they are the existing order. They will fight to the death against the “counter revolution”.
Read the "manifesto" at the second link in post #10.
You think things are bad "enough" yet?
“what does it take? someone getting killed or seriously injured?”
In all honesty, I don’t think that would even matter to the radical Left. It might with sensible Independents.
Who was violent during the Sixties?... And yet who gets blamed for violence to this day (through the Left’s projection)?
It will all get rationalized away by the Left. We just need to protect ourselves and realize when they lose it that they are serious, and likely intend to do real harm.
20 days of leftitst Wisconsin thuggery:
I certainly hope so. My aim is good, but even I can't hit someone from an entire State away...
I have no idea what it is going to take to get us moving, but against this much inertia? Ain't nothing going to stop us once we do...
Tired of these weak responses...
Things are only going to change when they learn about fear and pain.
Time to put some Amerikan Soviets in the gulag.
Dead commies don't throw rocks.
Very good idea.
let the thugs be arrested and the rest of them fight it out in court for the next decade or two while the go-along teachers say, “Y’want fries with that?”
“Tired of these weak responses...
Things are only going to change when they learn about fear and pain.”
—Again, for a multitude of reasons, I’m not there with you on that.
But we do need to do a lot more legal things to restore some sense of order here. And Boehner and co. in Congress need to get off their lazy a$$es and do everything they can to force protection in WI.
I’d even say if Obama and Holder aren’t willing to help here, then the U.S. government will need to be shutdown. That will gave them a good out in the inevitable.
The big issue for the Wisconsin libertarian party as far as I could tell for years was the legalization of drugs and not much else. They wanted limited government when it came to drugs.
I know a lot of leftists who actually consider themselves libertarians. They seriously do not see the disconnect between government intervention and expansion and their ideas that they are libertarians.
I think as long as the government enables them to indulge in any sort of hedonistic behavior as far as drugs and sex are concerned, they believe that it is a libertarian ideal, never mind the intrusion of prohibiting cigarette smoking in any public or private forum or the like. It doesn’t make sense to us, because we are not leftists.
Libertarian sounds cool, but I think they confuse libertarian and libertine.
“Progressive” and “libertarian” are polar opposites. Is the guy schizophrenic ?
POST OF THE DAY ! ! !
A ton more on the threats and thuggery:
Just more pointless games...
We are not going to gain our freedom through the current political system. I hold out little hope for those among us that cannot see this.
The perfect example being Noam Chomsky, who calls himself a “libertarian socialist”.

—What does it say below the spellcheck function when you post a comment- right after the words “Please”?...
Wow, to think these people teach children.
"Hey *person*! Im going to drive to your house and kill your dog then beat the SH-- out of your wife and kids... After that Im gonna stick a hot poker in your eye"
I am sincerely relieved that your participation will not be required for us to succeed at winning our freedom from the tyrant douche bags. Apparently the real world is much too harsh for you to accept, just return to your land of unicorns, rainbows and bunnies that crap jelly beans.. Your delicate sensibilities should be safe there...
All righty then...
I don’t think even that will stop it. Someone has already gotten shot by a leftist goon and we see how little things have changes since then. Anyone remember what happened in Arizona once they found out the shooting wasn’t committed by a Tea Partier?
-——the senator’s wife found nails strewn on the driveway-——
Typical Richard Trumka terrorism.
When he led the terrorist miners in their 1988 SW Virginia strike jackrocks were a commonly used device to puncture tires. Nails are bent and sharpened and welded so that one point is always up. The jackrocks were scattered in diveways and coal haul roadways. The union claimed that it was the work of nonunion members. The press of course gave them a pass and to this day will tell you it was a union busting effort
The acts were not terrorism then but are now. Wisconsin union members are terrorists
What is the new group that Feingold is forming? I want to watch for it.
I’m thoroughly ticked off that Feingold, a well known abortion supporter, is teaching at Marquette U. Disgraceful.
I don’t know if Progressives United is at all affiliated with Progressive Change Campaign Committee or the PCCC.
I don’t know about schizophrenic, but I am seriously concerned about his mental health. I have come to believe that it is a chicken or the egg theory of which comes first, mental illness or leftist beliefs. Do people become mentally imbalanced because they are leftists, or do mentally imbalanced people become leftists? Which comes first?
