Remember when the Madison protesters compared their plight to the protesters in Tahrir Square?
They wanted to walk like Egyptians
Think Progress was giddy at the comparison:
According to pro-labor protesters in Wisconsin, Gov. Scott Walker (R) may be taking a page from former Egyptian Dictator Hosni Mubarak and cutting off internet access to key protest organizers within the state Capitol building.
It wasn’t true, but the banner of the People of Egypt waved proudly in Madison anyway. Until crushed 15 months later by the voters.
