Wisconsin Recall Anarchists Suffer Hilarious Withdrawal Pains When Media Split
NewsBusters ^ | June 19, 2012 | P.J. Gladnick

Posted on 06/19/2012 6:01:59 PM PDT by PJ-Comix

It is well known that leftwing political demonstrators love to play to the cameras as happened in Wisconsin during the months leading up the the recent failed attempt to recall Governor Scott Walker. So what happens when the media departs once the election is over? As you can see in this video (and below the fold) their media withdrawal pains might not be pretty sight but it is definitely quite hilarious.

The two featured anarchists go berserk when they spot the CNN bus begin to leave town on the day after the recall election. Anarchist Miles Kristan even attempts to keep the CNN bus from leaving by standing in front of it in the street. However, the truely great comedic reaction comes from the other anarchist, Kristine "Thistle" Pettersen whom one wag nicknamed "Pippi Bongstocking." As a bonus, an extended video of Thistle has now been released which, as you can see, is chock full of comedy gold media withdrawal pains.

Wisconsin anarchists losing it ping — this is extended from yesterday.

FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.

I’m relieved to see that Thistle has another name. I wondered what kind of abusive parent would name their baby after a noxious weed!

Maybe it’s like with your kids. When they pitch a temper tantrum, the less attention you give them, the shorter the time it lasts until eventually it isn’t worth it for them and they stop altogether.

There's not many videos I view to the end but those two are better than 90+% of what's on TV.

Thistle is a very good comedienne, with a few English classes she could be great. However if she was serious with her anarchist spiel she seriously needs to see a shrink. LOL!

You need to watch the video—I haven’t laughed this hard in a long time—except, deep down, I find this poor young woman pathetic.

She’s such a waste of protoplasm........

Exactly. The only reason she was mad was because the community of anarchists (hippies) she was gathering with everyday were not going to be there anymore. No more gay dancing to the drums beating for her.

Someone on another thread called her “Hippie Bongstocking”, which also works well.

To me, this is deeply ironic. This person does say, in a heartfelt way, that the government does not own her...she owns the government and that she rules over herself. If she were not so confused by liberal lies, she would be in favor of limited government....THE EXACT OPPOSITE of what she is fighting for.

On the other hand, she could just be high.

“I left Madison, Wisconsin in September of 2003 on my bicycle and rode south to New Orleans with my partner Douglas. We lived outside of a car for five months on our bicycles that Fall and Winter, re-wilding ourselves and getting in touch with Nature.  Biking influences the sound of my music. The steady rhythm of the wheels beneath me as I ride clears my mind of anxiety and the songs just come (except for when a car or truck gets too close for comfort).”

She’s frustrated because this life is not a nirvana. She could be a Haight Ashbury 1967 hippie chick born too late.
Hopefully she will see that being the ‘Master of herself’ is a mistake. Prayers that she bow her heart to the Master of the Universe instead and find fulfillment in Him.

Her outrage that the race was called and conceded before all the votes were counted says to me that she considers the closing of the polls to be the end of only the “public” collection of votes.

“my government”, you and what army, lady?

It’s elected representation and YOUR SIDE KEEPS LOSING.

When there are not enough outstanding ballots to be counted that would turn an election, you can safely concede.

The “extended video” is a trip. It makes one wonder what percentage of yuts today think like this anarchist. If there is a high percentage and if the Zero can motivate them to get out and vote on Nov 6 America is indeed in big trouble. This is what our ed system has provided - live with it America.

that is seriously effing priceless. Exactly what I’ve been praying for, that these people will be in torment. They are implacable anyway, nothing ever satisfies them, even when they win. I just want them to be in agony as long as Walker is in office.

I just love the “who are these people, they aren’t even from Wisconsin” - and nothing about all the liberals that were bused in from other states to vote, and the professional protestors and organizers from out of state, and all the out of state union folks here and their millions of dollars. That’s okay.

If anyone wants to know what we’ve been dealing with the last 16 months (and essentially, forever in Madison) watch the two videos, especially the extended one - you will get a perfect idea of the people we are dealing with. She is a archetype Madison liberal. She is not extreme for Madison. She is what passses for “normal” there. That’s the people (and even more radical) that we’ve been dealing with. They are disconnected from reality. You can’t have a conversation with them. Waste of time.

P.J. O'Rourke summed them up best:

At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child - miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosphy of sniveling brats.

And these two video clips are irrefutable visual evidence O’Rourke is not exaggerating one iota, he is dead-on.

That screed sounds an awful lot like Janis Joplin's rendition of Kristorferson's, "Me and Bobby McGee".
