    The union paid for the shirts and makup the protestors were wearing.
    Wisconsin Protesters Target Special Olympics Ceremony - FoxNews.com
    Earlier in the day, a statewide student organization held what it calls an educational event on the opposite side of the Capitol on a new voter ID law that it says will make it harder for students to vote. The United Council of UW Students provided zombie makeup and T-shirts that read, "Students are as good as dead."
    But the group disavowed any connection to the protest at the Special Olympics.

    "We in no way condone that," spokesman Matt Guidry told FoxNews.com."The event is all about athletes. It shouldn't be politicized.'

    Interesting - measuring your value as a person my measuring your crap. Is that some sort of right wing rubric?

    On the plus side, the union defenders have now successfully joined the ranks of Fred Phelps followers...so...big ups!

    You struggle with a very simple analogy. Try again

    I would just add, that even the union group that these people were supposed to be representing have distanced themselves from the protestors and where they decided to protest. That should give you a pretty good idea how most people feel about the subject, not withstanding the reaction in this thread.

    I believe we are thinking alike here, but for reasoned speculation I will throw out there the question of whether the union group is distancing itself because it actually disagrees with the actions of the protestors, or the negative public reaction to actions of the protestors.

    Being as the event that day was a known address to the Special Olympians, to assume anything but the latter is to be grossly naive, IMMHO

    I would agree. My guess is that they were probably on board with the protest. Once they saw the negative reaction, they had to go into damage control.
