"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. 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"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
Had this been a Democratic governor, the same people in this thread saying this is no big deal and being completely accepting of this would be pitching a ****ing fit, and they know it.
Bullshat. There is no place that is not touched by politics, there is no place where they are not appropriate.It still does not change the fact they are douche bags for protesting at the Special Olympics.
"I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."
Well, it's not like the Special Olympians were upset about the protest, is it? Some people dressed as zombies showed up. So what? If they showed up with signs saying that the kids needed to be put down, then that is a good reason to get upset. But they didn't do that, did they? They showed up and protested Walker's policies.
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.
