scott walker compares unions to ISIS CPAC

Gov. Scott Walker insulted millions of Democrats and Republicans who belong to unions today by comparing unions to ISIS during his CPAC speech. Democrats are responding by blasting Walker.

Walker told the CPAC audience, “We need have someone who leads and ultimately will send a message that not only will we protect American soil, but…freedom-loving people anywhere else in the world. We need that confidence. If I can take on a hundred thousand protesters, I can do the same across the world.”

DNC Communications Director Mo Elleithee responded, “If Scott Walker thinks that it’s appropriate to compare working people speaking up for their rights to brutal terrorists, then he is even less qualified to be president than I thought. Maybe he should go back to punting.”

Scott Walker’s statement was a direct insult to millions of working Americans, but it is proof that Walker is going to try to ride his union-busting the whole way to the White House. The fact that Walker considers peaceful protesters to be on par with terrorists demonstrates that he is not qualified for office.

Gov. Walker has abused his power and illegally arrested protesters for years. As governor, Walker has specialized in arresting grandmothers and children for singing. Scott Walker was forced to back down from a plan to arrest people for watching a protest.

Scott Walker has been fumbling foreign policy questions left and right, but his biggest mistake yet may be absurdly trying to inflate his resume by comparing peaceful protesters and union members to terrorists. Comparing citizens of his home state to terrorists is the kind of red meat that the CPAC crowd eats up, but to the rest of the country, Scott Walker is proving that he isn’t fit to be president.

  1. Unfortunately too many brain dead stupid ass white with their colored sonderkommados shitting on the bible republicans will eat this up.

    I hate these people with a passion.

  2. Scot Walker isn’t qualified to do much of anything except, blowing smoke up the collective ass of the republican party.
    American workers, especially union members should be terrified of this little man.

  3. Scott Walker needs to acquire some anti-terrorism credentials by paying a personal visit to ISIS and facing them.

  4. wow, what a turd this guy is. hope this little prick never ascends to the highest office. thinks he’s a little dictator. can’t believe he would arrest grannies and kids for protesting. can’t believe people were dumb enough to vote this pos into office. you think Obama thinks he’s king, what do you think this little prick would shove down everyones throat

  5. Why do they think unions are so bad? Is it because they work hard and get a decent wage for it? Is it because they have health insurance and other perks?

    To me, if it wasn’t for unions, we would be suffering. So, if you know a union member, be sure to tell him or her thanks for the hard work he or she does every day to keep this nation going.

  6. Another thing I got from this turd’s comments….”I can take on….”

    Excuse me?!? Take on?! Take on your state’s own citizens as if they’re the enemy in battle? This is a clear cut example of his disdain and contempt for average Americans.

    And that includes YOU right wing trolls.

  7. What more proof do people need that republicans consider hard working Americans the enemy?

    Blame liberals all you want baggers but this piss ant said he went to war against your brothers and sisters.

    And there will be some who will defend him

  8. “Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is superior to capital, and deserves much higher consideration.” — Abraham Lincoln

  9. “If I can take on a hundred thousand protesters, I can do the same across the world.”

    LMAO!!!! Delusions of grandeur, eh Walker?

  10. It wasn’t only the uions that he equated with ISIS but all of the people who protested his actions. Just who you’d want in the Oval Office.

  11. Uhun, Walker said if he could handle a 100,000 protesters, he could handle ISIS.

    There is a tad bit of difference between people waving flags and bullhorns and those that carry RPG, AK-47s, grenades, mortars, 50 caliber guns and really big swords which they would quite happily use against him.

    Delusional doesn’t even come close to describing Walker.

  12. John Stuart Mill (1806 – 1873) was a British philosopher and economist. Here is a John Stuart Mill quote:
    “Conservatives are not necessarily stupid, but most stupid people are conservatives.”
    That quote explains why there are so many Faux News watchers in the Republican Party.
    Quite a few Democrats didn’t bother to vote in the 2010 midterm election but Republicans sure did. Guess which party got to draw the Congressional Redistricting maps after the 2010 census. Guess if “Gerrymandering” occurred to exacerbate that many stupid people will continue to elect conservative Congressmen even if it is against their best interest to do so. You know the answer.

  13. I come from a generation whose life was enhanced because my father was a proud union member. Higher pay and better benefits allowed my parents to get a mortgage for a house. We were able to take a vacation every couple of years. My brothers and I were able to go to college and were the first graduates on both sides of our families. My parents did not have to worry that an accident or illness would devastate them financially. Millions of people’s lives were changed by better working conditions, pay and benefits. So when I see little asswipes like Walker go after unions for political reasons only, I take it very personally. For him to equate union members with terrorists deserves our utmost hate for him.

  14. If Scott Walker compares labor union problems to ISIS invading 5 countries and having a murder spree, he has no place in prime time. It also proves his total dislikes for any and all unions and why he is so radical in his desire to dismantle them.

  15. I believe and feel it’s about time the VOTERS blast Scott Walker. After all, it was the Koch poison money that helped him keep his “governorship.” And, if I know the Koch genes, they will spend big bucks to push him into competing for the presidential election in 2016. God help the residents of Wisconsin as they speak out and the USA as we fight to keep the right-wing insanity out of political office!

    Remember, it was Papa Koch who founded the extremist right-wing John Birch Society.

  16. Scott Walker probably got his ass whipped on a daily basis and his lunch money taken away from him when he was in elementary school, could be deja vu all over again if he ever has to serve time for his corruption. It really needs to happen again.
    He may satisfy some ideologues fantasies, but he’ll never be POTUS. He’ll have his time to take a lap driving the GOP Klown RV before they move on to the next loser-of-the-month.

  17. Neo-Confederates absolutely HATE Republican Abraham Lincoln, and there’s no doubt in my or their minds that the Republicans of today, the Republicans beholden to the Koch Bros, are Neo-Confederates and have ceased to be Republicans in word and deed.

    It’s time they be seen as the traitors they are.

  18. In 1960, (Robert W.)Welch advised JBS members to: “Join your local P.T.A. at the beginning of the school year, get your conservative friends to do likewise, and go to work to take it over.”

    They’ve used the same tactic in State legislatures and the U.S. Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court.

    Let’s not allow these Koch-Birchers to do the same to our White House.

  19. Let us not forget Snott Walker’s thinking about people who are not rabid republicans.

    “He’s pretty reasonable but he’s not one of us, um, so I would let him be.” Snott Walker February 23, 2011 to NotDavid Koch

    Not one of us.

  20. He is a male Sarah Palin. Just watch him implode. He gives a good nasal speech and then off script he opens his mouth to switch feet. He is a moron.

  21. How about a photo of him standing up to the protestors–oh wait, there isn’t one. He used an underground tunnel to get in and out of the capitol during the protests, like the rat he is. And he has spent nearly a million taxpayer dollars for personal security and never announces his schedule ahead of time so he doesn’t have to face voters (or protestors), only handpicked audiences. This is presidential material?

  22. Dustin –
    Thanks for your post. I came from a very conservative family but was lucky to come of age in the early sixties and then met and married a union member and a moderate Democrat. (I became much more liberal) Did we have a cushy life because of unions – No! We had a livable life and were able to raise 4 children in a nice house in a nice neighborhood, pay, for the most part, their education their weddings, all taxes (Federal, State, Real Estate). Do the non-union people understand that they have vacation pay, sick time, holiday pay, a chance at a decent wage and a safe working environment because of the hard work of union’s hard work and ability and ability to negotiate! Not if the Koch brothers have their way. Why to Republicans hate the regular working man and woman? Who do they think pays most of the taxes?

  23. You’re welcome Joanne. I appreciate the fact that people know that unions are worth something.

    Everyone of us has pretty been hammered with the crazy idea that unions are bad and evil thanks to what Reagan did to the traffic controllers in the early 80’s. I don’t get it… I said it before: Why are unions so bad? Why is being able to negotiate a deal to have a safe working environment, decent pay, holidays and sick pay such a problem to those on the right? I bet you and everyone else here that a good chunk of those people are in a union themselves and they want to believe in what force fed trash is given to them by their leaders (like Scotty Boy here).

    To me, unions are as American as apple pie and baseball. We should be praising unions for what they do for us, the normal people here, instead of what they aren’t.

  24. Unbelievable how conservative the Midwest has become since 2009. If someone would’ve told me ten years ago that Indiana, Michigan, and soon to be Wisconsin would be right to work states I’d not have thought it possible.

    The Union bosses all need to be replaced because they’re batting zero. Unions need a new vision because they have lost the white working class in droves all across America.

  25. Years ago the University of Wisconsin’s teaching assistants (TAs) lost their right to bargain collectively right along with the rest of the state’s public employees.

    Without any say in the conditions of their employment these TAs have effectively been reduced to the status of mere peons.

    Now Walker is promotong a decimating cut to the university’s funding.

    If these incremental assaults on UW continue Scott Walker will have succeeded in reducing Wisconsin’s premier university to the level of a glorified trade school.

    The governor himself does not hold a bachelor’s degree from any institution.
