    Re: Wisconsin Unions Disrupt Special Olympics Ceremony

    This is pretty dumb. Here... let me point out what REALLY happened and how it needs to be assessed. Perhaps this will shut down the partisan hackery I see from BOTH sides on this thread.

    1) The protesters were protesting Walker, NOT the Special Olympics. Any accusation opposite of that is idiotic partisan hackery.
    2) Just because they were allowed to do this, under the law, doesn't mean that this was an OK thing to do. It wasn't and WAS disrespectful to those participating. There is a time and a place for things, and this wasn't it. Any accusation opposite of that and using the 1st Amendment to defend the morality of doing this is idiotic partisan hackery.

    There. That about sums it up. Let's see which people fall into one of these two categories.

    I'm not American so I can freely say holding such protests at such a day was not a classy thing to do. The protests could have been held when the Governor was on his way to or from the event.

    I find it strange though in the video that the zombie protestors were able to walk right up to the front and then in front of the athletes. When muslim4UK tried protesting the returning dead UK servicemen at Wooton Bassett the crowd itself blocked their entry and protest - not the police.

    Anyone that would politicize this event, or any event like it, is a ****ing scumbag. Period.

    Just because you're ignorant of the fact that NOONE crashed the Special Olympics, doesn't mean that you have to write off the wall things, in response to my post, about what people can or should do. I never said anything that one could misconstrue to be about what one could or should protest.

    You, and the other 'usual suspects', just saw an opportunity for a union bash and blindly jumped in. There were no Special Olympics being held on the Wisconsin capitol steps to be crashed, protested or interrupted in any way, shape or form.

    annnnd.......the people who were protesting were UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN STUDENTS, not some evil, disgusting union thugs that some were referring to in this thread.

    i think we are in agreement
    beginning with the politician who showed up not to participate as an athele, or to watch the athletes compete, but to make this a political appearance

    I think out of respect for the Special Olympics they should not have done this. It was classless and really only displays pure rage to the point of protesting everywhere that the governor goes.

    there has been absolutely NO indication of pure rage
    the special olympics officials insisted that the protests were not disruptive to the event or the participants
    and yet you see it as "pure rage"
    hyperbole much?
