    Matt Guidry, a spokesman for the United Council of University of Wisconsin Students, which organized the Vos protest, said his group did not back the demonstration during the noon-hour Special Olympics ceremony attended by Walker, though some of the same zombie demonstrators were involved.

    "That was not associated with anything that United Council was doing," Guidry said. "That doesn't make us look that good."

    Guidry said the intent of the "die-in" in Vos' office was to raise awareness about legislation requiring voters to show photo IDs at the polls and separate issues in the state budget such as a decision by Republicans to turn down federal money for increasing Internet broadband access.

    What do you expect? Should they lower themselves to the protestors standards?

    being an advocate of free speech, and an opponent of the republican approved 'free speech' zones appears to get under your skin. pity. but then you are a member of the party of fear. be afraid; be very afraid


    i don't know, but i support their right to assembly and free speech
    appears you and yours only approve of those things when the assembled believe as you do
    pity

    if they protested nearby, you likely would see me. counter protesting. which our rights also protect. unlike you, i do not seek the ability to quash the arguments of those who believe differently than i. they are entitled to voice their opinions, no matter how mean or how stupid

    no defense of their position but an absolute defense of their ability to voice their misbegotten beliefs ... not unlike supporting the rights of the kkk, teabaggers or neocons to voice their own forms of inanity
    By all means...continue to support Westboro and their constitutional right to promote their anti-gay mesage at funerals. Its replusive and inappropriate as hell...but hey man...you are within your rights.

    Just because you CAN...doesnt make you NOT a douchebag. Someone should pass that message on to Phelps...and the retards that think it is OK to use a Special Olympics ceremony to promote your cause. Same kind of scum.

    That article you posted as evidence it seemed like said nothing it was the Unions. It just stated that the student organization did not organize it but many students in the organization took part of the protest...
    So where is this proof that it was Union organized?
    Oh wait you have NONE.

    Matt Guidry, a spokesman for the United Council of University of Wisconsin Students, which organized the Vos protest, said his group did not back the demonstration during the noon-hour Special Olympics ceremony attended by Walker, though some of the same zombie demonstrators were involved.
    Thank you for proving my point.

    "That was not associated with anything that United Council was doing," Guidry said. "That doesn't make us look that good."
    And again.

    Guidry said the intent of the "die-in" in Vos' office was to raise awareness about legislation requiring voters to show photo IDs at the polls and separate issues in the state budget such as a decision by Republicans to turn down federal money for increasing Internet broadband access.
    Soo all this makes this "union organized" how???
    Sounds like were going back to the "Obama is a socialist thread".

    The protestors were from the union. Of course they deny it when public opinion shows it was a bad idea
