Quick Hit: “Against the Will of the People!”

Wisconsin Republicans have started the revolution!

With slick, fascist type swiftness, 18 Senators reversed 50 years of good politics against the will of the citizens.

The late night antic has not really gotten out to the citizens yet, but the anger will be elevated when Wisconsinites awaken to the news.

It is now clear that Scott Walker is the front man for this Republican/Fascist grab for power, stripping union rights from hard-working people. Americans will not tolerate this threat to democracy.

The way the conference was handled, the way Majority Leader Fitzgerald conducted the meeting was not only unlawful, but was an ugly example of fascism.  Fitzgerald was unwilling to listen to the impassioned argument of Representative Peter Barca who, by-way-of a letter from the current Republican Attorney General, point out the illegality of the Senator’s actions.

“A Fascist Regime in Wisconsin!”

The Governor, on Wednesday, issued an unlawful arrest order for the 14 Democrat Senators who fled the state to preserve democracy and protect Wisconsin’s citizens. A distinctive move in a fascist regime. In his decision, Walker clearly overstepped his gubernatorial powers, trampling civil liberties—moving ever closer to fascism.

Is Walker A Fascist? Is Senator Grothman, or Majority Leader Fitzgerald? Are the rest of the Republican Senators?

“Wisconsin: the Battleground For the Middle-Class?”

Not since the late 1920’s has a struggle been so important!

We’re all union members now!

This fight is not just a fight for the unions but for the middle-class—for the dignity of every hard-working, red-blooded, man, woman, and child in America.

Governor Scott Walker and Wisconsin’s Republican Legislature has taken on a battle that pits all Americans against the right-wing ideology. An ideology of suppression and oppression. An ideology that moves more toward fascism and further from democracy every day.

The GOP has been headed down this dark oppressive path for a long time but Wisconsin has brought their ideology to the surface and to the attention of all Americans.

Fascism in America? In Wisconsin?
