    Scott Walker is a politician. He politicized the event by being there.
    There were protestors in front of the podium, blocking views. That is confrontation.

    To come face to face with, especially with defiance or hostility
    So, politicians cannot attend ANY public event because that politicizes it. I'll have to try and remember that too.

    there is no place where they are not appropriate.
    The special Olympics does not have squat to do with the protesters beef with Walker. This event is about the participants not whining douchebags who are pissed because they are going to lose their union power.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Maybe they would and maybe they wouldn't. Not everybody thinks that just because their party or their guy did something wrong then its alright.

    I don't believe he responded to this post.

    Of course it would... Especially if Obama was the guest speaker... that would make it a political event, and worthy of protesting. Haven't you been pating attention?

    It's somewhat difficult to provide proof where none exists.

    This is bull****. That the Governor is a "politician" does not mandate that his presence at any event is therefore a "politicized" event. In fact, the Governor attends many functions where politics is not his purpose there, where he is not there to espouse any opinions of a political nature. Rather, he is there as the chief executive of the state.

    We all would agree that a right to protest exists. And that with a Governor, a group of protestors needs to find the opportunity to confront him/her, and also look for media coverage.

    However, the issue here is one of appropriate venue. In that those also being disrupted are those of special needs. In some cases, of lesser mental capacities, who would be unable to process this as a valid protest.

    "Politics" as an excuse is rubbish in this case. There is no excuse except arrogance and thuggery. This was heinous.

    3. you don't ****ing protest at the special olympics - it is wrong, it is crude, it is narcissistic, those people deserve better than to have their day of achievement hijacked by the vitriol-spewing partisans of either side. this is a lower order of magnitude - but the same kind - of protest that the westboro baptist folks engage in; taking something that is very explicitely about honoring others and trying to make it about you and your anger instead.



    i'll admit, I'm surprised. i really didn't expect everyone to immediately be willing to screw over those with special needs to defend public unions. i guess it's true what they say about who owns who.
    Bold and underlined part: That is exactly what I was thinking before I even got to this post. Good job on this one cpwill.

    Also, I find it humorous that Walker would even have the balls to show up to an event like this, after gutting special education, and giving the money to the Koch Brothers. The irony here is so thick you can cut it with a knife. His showing up to the Special Olympics is orders of magnitude more repugnant than the protesters who showed up.

    To the special kids - Pay no attention to the funny guys dressed in zombie suits, but watch out for that governor who is holding the knife that he is stabbing you in the back with.
    Bold part: Prove it. I am not aware that Walker cut any funding for special education...much less gave that money to anyone.
