Walker predicts his own demise
In a statement for a radio station in Iowa, Walker was asked about the John Doe case that is before the Supreme Court: Rich people vs. Democracy
“I said even if you’re a liberal Democrat, you should look at (the raids) and be frightened to think that if the government can do that against people of one political persuasion, they can do it against anybody, and more often than not we need protection against the government itself,”
Ok. And if you are a “Stand With Walker” Republican you should look at (Act 10, Budget Cuts, and Union Attacks) and be frightened to think that if the government can do that against people of one political persuasion, they can do it against anybody, and more often than not we need to protect against the government itself.
Wow. Truer words were never spoken from the mouth of Scott Walker. Since he has suddenly experienced some sudden epiphany of compassion, he must know that liberal Democrats can be pushed too far, and he is standing on very thin ice and has fueled the fire of discontent for far too long. If – “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.” (Martin Luter King) – than he is tempting his own fate.
If you’ve ever pried too hard against the handle of a shovel, you know that it can snap. After the bend and break follows another quote from Dr. King: “A riot is the language of the unheard”. Is anybody listening? Because, right now, in the State of Wisconsin the “liberal Democrats” are left with no platform for redress, or discussion. Not within the Executive, Legislative, or Judicial branches of government. Yes, Mr. Walker, Sir – “if the government can do that against people of one political persuasion, they can do it against anybody”! But, since you have defined your government as the villain in your own words, where or where do we go for redress? The very fabric and function of democratic government in Wisconsin has been undermined into dysfunction, and if that was your Koch driven goal. Good job!
But remember that bending arc? It is about to snap. It isn’t really political or predictable, it is just plan physics. Something like, “for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction”. All that reactive energy of the Act 10 protest, the recall elections, that has gone unheeded and unheard lies dormant. Worse, it has been repackaged and branded to become the very foundation of the political message that, somehow, entitles you to become president of the U.S.! But be warned. Read the label. The energy of discontent did not suddenly vanish. No. That is not the way physics works. It has moved into a very dangerous and volatile molecular movement beneath the surface. Do you feel it?
This is not a message to incite a riot, but a warning to avoid one. All it will take is one crystallizing event or happenstance. After years of finding every pathway into civil debate shut down at the bang of gavel, observing a physical attack in the chambers of the Supreme Court, seeing election laws broken by dark money organizations that go unpunished – Yes. Mr. Walker, Sir, “we need protection against the government itself”. But you have left no civil platform of redress open to the people. The “government” that was instituted to provide that platform, now has a very high price tag and closed to all but “stakeholders”.
Warning – Excite Pressure Release NOW.
