Wisconsin Republicans were not in agreement with Democrat Governors who rewarded state unions for their votes with high pay , benefits and pensions.
The Republicans paid a higher tax while working as they did before . They wrote letters of disagreement , held tea parties , urged like minded thinkers to register to vote .
The hard work paid off , the Republicans are voted in fair and square . Of course the Republicans are going to do what the promised and reverse the union bribes the last government set forward .
If people don't like what the present Governor is doing , they can vote for someone else in four years , that's the American way.

NO ! Not for the state teachers union , they break the law by closing the schools , use the children to benefit their paycheck , surround the Governor's house with his children in it . What a disgrace . Then the President of the United States of America takes the side of the outlaws .

Public rep because I have to spread the love around. This is a great post and very true. Well stated Rita Mordio.

Maybe you slept through the protests against Bush where calls for his death were a regular feature, pictures of him with a noose around his neck a common sight, etc. The media did not care about anger, tone, and civility then. Shocking I know. You can look at the pictures yourself. I am sure the Huffington Post was worried about call to violence then to right?

Deflect, deflect, deflect.

What I was responding to was a guy who said

Quote:
The Tea Party was never uncivil
I find that statement to be completely untrue, based in part on posters like "We came unarmed... this time," and speakers who call for "the bullet box" if they don't win at the polls. Birthers, who show up at tea party events all the time, are led by somebody who regularly calls for a military coup d'etat.

My point is that when somebody says that the tea party was never uncivil, that's just simply not true. Whether or not anti-war protesters went too far themselves has nothing to do with whether tea party protests have ALWAYS been civil.

And yes, some people in those anti-war protests did go too far.

The fact is they do not care how outraged, angry, or uncivil the left gets when protesting because they are going to write their articles slanted in the favor of lefty protestors. The only time anger, outrage, and "uncivil" behavior is frowned upon is when it comes from the right. This is simply another blatant example of how full of BS the left was the whole time they act like they cared about civility.
TXboomerang !!! ... Precisely !

America's so called liberal media truly appears to be quite pitiful to say the least !

Only an absolute simpleton would not be able to deduce the acutely illogical nonsense that spews forth form these liberal loons controlled media outlets ... LMAO !

Most American Citizens could care less about these twits and their pathetic and biased reporting of events BS !!!

There are bad bananas in every bunch. There were people who didn't belong at Tea Party events attending them. I even read about plants at events just to make the media see them.

I think you have to agree though that as a whole, the bulk of the signage and the civility of the Tea Partiers were pretty good.

Is nobody going to call this guy out for saying that Reagan should have been eliminated for signing an amnesty in the '80s?

I don't want to start making that same charge of hypocrisy that so many in this thread have, but I just have to ask.
May I suggest that you take a peak at the video on the thread about all those Foul, Filthy righties? Maybe you might be able to see one example of left leaning hypocrisy after another. Give it a try.

Hypocrites indeed!
Take a peak at my OP about honest to god left leaning hypocrisy. Maybe you better not do that since people like you don't like to see things from live TV that prove what we have been talking about.

In case you can stand this the thread is about Those foul, filthy right leaners.
