    Prosecutor Emailed Suggestion for Faking an Attack on Anti-Union Governor Scott Walker

     


    It just gets better and better, doesn't it? Will Americans at some point realize that governor candidates funded by billionaires (in this case, the Brothers Koch) may not have the people's best interests at heart? And neither will their slimeball accomplices....?

    Not if, as I fear, the majority of Americans are like the below commenter. I copied this exactly. I would suspect that it's some troll trying to get a rise out of people except for the fact that I've read comments like that so many times before.

    "If you belong to a UNION you are a loser remember your still ACORN PROTESTER under a different name COMMUNITY ACTIVIST? may the good lord have mercy on you what are the going rate for a protester i need a job got lay-off from my union job"

    Oh, we realize it. The sick part is that it is our very distrust of these bought and paid for politicians that has been hijacked by neo-conservatives in order to get politicians like Walker elected. The suckers who voted for him did so because he presented himself as "one of us." This is reinforced by media hunting ratings by over-polarizing the landscape (on both sides!) - if you aren't with us, you are un-American! (Whatever that means.)

    This is why things like Wikileaks and Anonymous give me such a warm fuzzy feeling. I don't think they are necessarily any less slimeball, but they are presenting us with the tools we will need to maintain our democracy in the face of this Xenophobic/Industrial Complex.

    The Koch fortune vs 4chan. Welcome to 'merica.
