Unionized Police Officers Are Now Abetting Felonies In Wisconsin

In Wisconsin today, union thugs interfered with petition gathering to force a recall Democrats who fled the state rather than do their jobs, deliberate, and vote on legislation they opposed.  Meanwhile, Wisconsin’s unionized police force stood idly by as their fellow union members interfered with the civil rights of those they disagree with:

The policemen who were there, and who were standing in close proximity to these events as they unfolded, did nothing to assist those collecting the petitions as they were being destroyed, despite such an action being a Felony under Wisconsin law. Police also did nothing to clear the walk way for citizens that wanted to sign the petitions. Recall Committee members received many phone calls the following day from Merill area citizens who stated that they showed up to sign the petition, but were too afraid to get out of their vehicles and approach the recall table.

intimidation and interference with the exercise of civil rights by others is not “what democracy looks like,” as the union thugs were chanting.  It is what a thugocracy looks like. 

Worse, when the police chose sides, they are lawless thugs not peace officers.  Worse still, they are lawless thugs armed by and imbued with the authority of the state.  It is time to fire who stand in the way of citizens’ free exercise of civil rights. 

As President Present reminded us after 2008, elections have consequences.  Unions who attempt to intimidate other citizens into silence should be decertified.  Legislators who flee the state to block votes they don’t agree with — in violation of their duty as elected officials — should be recalled.  Police officers who refuse to enforce the law to protect people they disagree with are irretrievably corrupt and should be fired. 

None of them have any place in a democracy.  And any who refuse to condemn them have no business calling themselves “Democrats.” 

Hopefully, the majority of good people of Wisconsin will see that the Wisconsin Democratics have aligned themselves with the selfish, corrupt, anti-democratic forces who line their campaign chests with cash rather than the best interests of all citizens of Wisconsin.  If not, Wisconsin voters deserve the government the unions paid for, and the most the rest of us can do is resist bailing them out when they state inevitably fails.
