Wis. High School Students Drown Out Pro-Union Protesters With Chants of ‘Stand With Walker’
the Blaze ^ | March 20, 2012 | Jonathon M. Seidl

Posted on 03/20/2012 6:46:15 AM PDT by Sopater

Usually when the media talks about high school kids at the Wisconsin Capitol it’s been about teachers bringing students to protest Wis. Gov. Scott Walker and his budget cuts. But we have some different news to bring you today: during a visit to the Capitol last Thursday, some Wisconsin high school students decided to fight back against the anti-Walker sentiment they were witnessing during an impromptu visit.

In short, students from Sheboygan Lutheran High School decided to stop by the rotunda in Madison while in town for the state high school basketball playoffs. While there, they witnessed protesters signing about unions and solidarity. So they decided to drown them out with pro-walker chants.

Normally, I don’t condone “shouting down” opponents, but these guys have had plenty of time to say their peace and they’ve constantly shouted down Gov. Walker whenever he’s tried to speak publically anywhere.

Are the yutes finally doing the math?

As they enter the workforce...if they ever manage to find a job....they will be forced to subsidize the standard of living the older generation has assigned to themselves.
A standard of living that will be forever out of reach for this younger generation if we keep following this path.

William A. Jacobson, associate clinical professor at Cornell Law School, notes that some anti-Walker protesters were angered by the students’ move, calling it “hypocrisy.” Jacobson wasn’t having any of that:

"Excuse me, did the students take over the State Capitol and refuse to leave, set up camp, damage walls, threaten legislators, crash through police lines, encourage police insurrection, sit down in hallways blocking access, pound on buses carrying legislators, lock their heads to railing, or do any of the other destructive things the anti-Walker protesters did for weeks on end last year? (added) Oh, and did I forget the death threats?"

"While there, they witnessed protesters signing about unions and solidarity."

And raising the clenched-fist salute of national socialism. Learn to recognize evil in our times, children. Your teachers and parents will be the first ones sent to the camps.

Well, it's Sheboygan Lutheran High School, so it's a private school, not a gov't school.

These are some smart kids, in spite of the unions. They could (should) teach the teachers!

Good for them! We (as Conservatives, everywhere) should get get off of our moral high horse and start using the enemy's tactics against them, All the while cleaning our weapons (if you don't have one, get one and learn to use it) against the day we may need one, or we are doomed as a Republic!

Over the last four years employment among "youts" has been at near Greek levels.

That's absolutely deadly for the Democrats ~

Correct. And their parents are paying double tuition-- property taxes which support the public schools and tuition to Sheboygan Lutheran High School, so they can get an actual education. I'm sure some of the kids are fed up with all the hogs at the government trough which are eating away at their household income.

I'm willing to bet Sheboygan Lutheran High School is affiliated with one of the conservative sects of Lutheranism and not the ELCA.

There is a group out there called: Union Conservatives. They have a website and are on Facebook. There are lots of us out here, who are forced to join a union as a condition of our employment. UC has fought against card check, and as a NY State employee, I applauded our Governor’s plan to fix our broken pension system. Many of us are putting more and more of our paychecks into a deferred comp plan, because we are waiting for the current system to implode.

-—I’m sure some of the kids are fed up with all the hogs at the government trough which are eating away at their household income.——

Suggested chant: “Teachers are pigs!” Followed by snorting sounds. Repeat as necessary.

That would have knocked them on their ample posteriors.

Hope for the future.

Now that young people are realizing they are the ones who will have to clean up the spending mess by the Dems they are going to support limited government, fiscally conservative policies.

It may be too early to extrapolate this broadly, but I sense that this is a symptom of the libs' losing the next generation. Those poor slobs (the generation, not the libs) have seen the effect of left-wing idiocy and they are rejecting it. They know they can't bear the cost.

Ironically, it almost seems like the Left is using its own rope to hang itself, just like their hero once predicted.

every year is a whole new crop of college grads who have to move back home.

They are postponing the normal things we all did...buying the first car, renting the first apartment, saving for a house, planning a wedding....

Everyone is in limbo.

Note that this is not a government school, but a Lutheran parochial institution. A very different venue.

Teachers at Missouri Synod Lutheran High Schools are not pigs. They are called ministers of the Church.

The joys of spell check. I'm sure the author meant "singing."

Yeah, it would be rude to shout-down people who are "signing" about unions and solidarity.

Click link above. The student athletes were there at the invitation of their state senator to celebrate their WIAA state Championship. One of the students of this small school, Sam Dekker, is 6” 8” and if you watched the March Madness here you may have seen him.

I watched some of the semi-finals while on my lunch break and Dekker was quite impressive. He’ll be fun to watch in Madison.

I heard this audio on Mark Belling’s show and it was so wonderful. A bright light in a time of trouble. Some rare good news.

Singing is a powerful tool. We need to write the best songs and sing them. They should be so catchy that you can’t help but sing them too.
