Kapanke hit by property damage (Wisconsin Senator threatened; car windows broken, and more)
JSOnline ^ | 3/17/2011 | Lee Bergquist

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 Walker’s 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 Kapanke’s staff:

Nails were scattered on his driveway twice last week. The incidents were reported to the La Crosse Police Department.

Also, Kapanke's’s 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.

Gee, the MSM have not been out reporting this and preaching about the need for civility. They have not said that the MSM which have constantly attacked Wisconsin Republicans and the Democrat operatives bussed into Illinois are to blame. They have not demanded that the MSM adopt a more “civil tone” and “tone down the rhetoric”.

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.

I have a neighbor...a nice guy... well-known...but he has recently been posting more and more political trash on his facebook page...at first, I was interested, but yesterday I decided to block it because it had gotten to the point that I actually thought that he was losing it. I seriously thought that he was going round-the-bend. He used to be a well-known libertarian, but he recently announced his affiliation with that new progressive group that Russ Feingold is heading.
I had a discussion last night with someone who was extremely well-informed about the California threats after the gay marriage resolution failed. This person rightly likened the intimidation that is occurring in Wisconsin to the sorts of things that happened in California to anyone who publicly opposed the gay marriage resolution.
We are seeing a pattern now on the left when things do not go their way that is very disturbing.

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?

It would appear that both the rule of law and the social contract between citizens and law enforcement has broken down in Madison.
Both this story and the ones linked below have drawn a line in the sand.
The governor's reaction better be decisive.
Declare a state of emergency.
Close down the University.
Hunt down and eliminate the vermin.

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?

Time to take Public Safety duties Back

Real Thug Ultimatum

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?

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.

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”.

“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.

—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.

I am sincerely relieved that your participation will not be required for us to succeed at winning our freedom from the tyrant douche bags.

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

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?
