SHOCKING: One of the most offensive things we have seen in politics! (TPX-Wisconson)

If you are offended easily, do not read this!

We had an eventful day in Wisconsin between braving an old fashioned mid-west snow storm and debating Wisconsin Democratic Party communications director Graeme Zalinski.

Between the two, we are still trying to figure out which one blew the most air.

We have been warning you that our opposition in the Recall can not stand on the facts because the truth is not on their side. The only thing that they can resort to is banging pots and pans and screaming their tired stereotypes and lies.

But even we were shocked by the behavior and disrespect that Wisconsin Democratic Party communications director Graeme Zalinski showed to our chairman Amy Kremer on Wisconsin Public Television's Here and Now.

The lies that he said were offensive, but the condescending way in which he said it was even worse - video to come shortly.

Here are a few samples that give you a taste of his rude behavior and lies:

"Its shocking that this governor would embrace these out-of-state corporate extremists like the Tea Party, people with southern drawls from confederate states (a reference to Amy being from Atlanta)"

When Amy was asked a question by the moderator and it was her turn to speak, he just kept yelling:

"Well Yee-haw"

"Get out of our state, get out of our state!"

We have seen some heated debates about ideology, but never have we seen someone that claims to be a professional act so immaturely, offensively and with such a lack of respect for another human.

After his performance on the program, things got worse when he went to Twitter and said:

How offensive that @GovWalker is bringing crazies from the Confederate states up here to meddle in our elections.

@GovWalker's Tea Party group sure loves the "N" Word. Must be the @WisGOP nod to Black History Month.

I interpret the "he" to refer to Graeme Zielinski, and not the moderator, in the following:

When Amy was asked a question by the moderator and it was her turn to speak, he just kept yelling:

See that this clip gets plenty of airtime, Zielinski is a posterboy for Rat tolerance.

“Typical of dems and leftists.”

“Lies and shoutovers when they have nothing to debate with.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On March 1, at our local Wisconsin newspaper website their was a coordinated purging of conservatives that post comments/opinions. They want to silence all conservatives voices. They are stopping at nothing to seize and maintain power.

I do not see this ending well. I now have no doubts that we are headed for bloodshed before this is over. This year may be the ending of our republic, it is hanging by a string now.

If you are able, please send donations to Scott Walker campaign, even if it is a few dollars.

Aww, the Rats will probably pull the provoked outburst of an overwrought gay, persecuted by reprehensible homophobic local right wing fundamentalists defense.

It’s not bigotry when we do it. Liberals cannot be bigots as they care.

Which party supported Jim Crow and segregation and the KKK and gun control for blacks and the poor?

Thank goodness. That creep got away with too much in that interview.
Among the things not brought up:
How many out-of-state union members have been in WI in the last year causing a mess/problem

Koch brothers have been outspent by the unions by a factor of 5. Correct me if I’m wrong.

The proportion of bad ballots counted thus far.

The only good sign I see, is that if the Dems can only get a creep like Z to speak on WPR, their organization is in trouble.

Did you read some of his newest tweets?
This man is in need of some major help. So much hate. Funny thing is it seems he is just talking to himself.

I learned something this past week from Andrew Breitbart. Wear their hate like a badge of courage because you must be hitting a nerve.

Zackly right. Decent Democrats cannot stand this guy and are embarrassed to have him out as the face of their party.

bob, there are no decent Democrats. None. With all that we've been through in Wisconsin I have not heard of any who have voiced disagreement or disapproval. And those who have not spoken are complicit in their silence.

“there are no decent Democrats. None. With all that we’ve been through in Wisconsin I have not heard of any who have voiced disagreement or disapproval. And those who have not spoken are complicit in their silence”.

IMHO our grandpa and grandma’s democrat party got lost in the second half of the 20th century. Barney Frank, Anthony Wiener, Chuck U. Shumer, Barack H Obama, the author of “Rush Limbaugh is a big fat idiot” the impeached Bill Clinton.

The list is as endless as the list of registered democrats most of whom will resort to just about anything to maintain their power, and the rest of them will remain complicit in their silence. A nation cannot stand that is divided, and we surely are divided as any day in any congress state or federal is ugly witness.

At times like these, I question how one can utter the words God bless America when we realize what we are asking considering just the single issue of aborting the generations that will not follow the present. How far we have fallen in such a short time. Sack cloth and ashes comes to mind, and if not, what does the future hold?

A sustaining thought is, just how noisy and empty the cart must be for the purveyors of the cart contents, to continue to shout down the good in this country. The good will prevail, or we will cease to be a country.

Twitter is a leftist web site? I didn't know that!

However, do you agree there is a war going on - a cultural war? It's being fought on sites such as Twitter and Facebook. Do we cede the battlefield to the left and stay here in our comfort zone bitching and moaning about the war going on around us, but not willing to join the battle? Who do you think will win the war when one side has left the field?

I cannot wait to vote these bastards into little sniveling crybabies with no political power at all.

I hope to hear the sounds of heads exploding in Madison (20 miles from here)after each election this year.

I will also tune in (a rare thing) to the local liberal network news on election nights to see the obvious gloom on their faces as they say “Walker” won (never “Governor Walker”).

The TEA Party isn’t going away, we’re only getting stronger and they know it. Our principles don’t vanish, our resolve is firm, to defeat socialism where ever it infects America.

Breitbart lives on in The TEA Party.

Many do not think the lib left establishment will let go of power if they lose at the ballot box. Some sort of violent reaction especially in states with a strong industrial union presence is not unlikely. Refusing to leave office, chaining oneself to the radiators while hundreds of drunken union goons armed with bats and steel lag ends surround government offices defying anyone to oust the ‘people's friends’ and the lamestreams giving it sympathetic coverage might be a starter.

“However, do you agree there is a war going on - a cultural war”?

Absolute agreement, It appears we may have a little disagreement on the “field of battle”.

The principle behind FB and twitter just leaves me speechless. inane attempts at one sided conversation faceless horn tooting, and the ability to say anything particularly disgusting without thinking about consequences.

I have a problem with drive through banking, much less any of the other ideas of faceless interaction/transaction I don’t do faceless banking.

I believe FR was way ahead of its time, where one can have a learning experience while engaged in faceless conversation. Twitter and FB and the other “social networking” sites IMHO bastardized the process, and began appealing to the masses as a business model using the same folks addicted (so to speak) to texting. Faceless conversation.

Yea, I’m probably showing my age, but I’m also sure there are plenty of folks of a much younger age willing to call social networking their battle field, saving me from having to consider it. Texting to me is the last ditch, low battery, personal locator for one stuck in a blizzard, with just enough signal for texting but not enough for voice reception.
