Preparing for victory or to start a war?
Tuesday’s recall election in Wisconsin won’t be the end of the road for union organizers and radical leftists. No matter what the outcome is for Walker, Kleefisch, and the others, it appears that Wisconsin’s role as host will continue.
Worker’s World reports that there are widespread actions planned for Wisconsin on June 6, the day after the recall election takes place:
…Fighters from Occupy Wall Street, unions and independent organizations are organizing “Keep It in the Streets” actions to take place in cities statewide on June 6. (occupywi.org) For example, Occupy Milwaukee is sponsoring a rally at Pier Marquette Park in Milwaukee at 5 p.m., followed by a march to the banking district.
The facebook page for the June 6 action; note carefully the list of “endorsers”:
On June 5th we vote. On June 6th we keep it in the streets! Join Occupy Wisconsin and dozens of community allies and labor unions to march on June 6th to make the following demands of our Governor:
1. Repeal Act 10 – Hands off unions and collective bargaining. No cuts to education or Badger Care.
2. Restore the Equal Pay Act – We demand and end to workplace discrimination.
3. Tax the 1% – Hold the banksters and the 1% accountable for their economic crisis, and stop the cuts to working and oppressed people.
We will rally at Pere Marquette Park before marching on Milwaukee’s city hall and banking district. Bring your pots and pans, drums, etc.
Endorsers – Occupy Wisconsin, Occupy Milwaukee, Madison, Fond du Lac, Green Bay, Oshkosh, Appleton and St. Croix Falls, 9 to 5, Amalgamated Transit Union Local 998, Milwaukee Teachers Education Association (MTEA), Milwaukee Graduate Assistants Association (MGAA), Voces de la Frontera, Welfare Warriors, Casa Maria, WI Bailout the People Movement, Iraq Veterans Against the War, AFSCME 82, Move to Amend, Milwaukee Students for a Democratic Society, Peace Action WI, Milwaukee Fransiscan Action Network, Milwaukeeans for a Better Tomorrow Tomorrow, Act Everywhere, Occupy Riverwest, Occupy the Suburbs, Milwaukee Transit Riders Union, Progressive Democrats of America.
Unions, teachers, grad students, Occupiers, Progressive Democrats of America….
Will teachers and union members continue to allow their organizers to embrace these affiliations?

“Fighters from Occupy Wall Street…”
Cowardly thugs is more accurate.
Little punk-ass packs of vandals and glorified taggers are not fighters.
Not to say they present no dangers. If you are a parked car, you could be in serious trouble.
Fighters? Only if they get a trophy.
Is this the modern-day ‘Bloody Kansas’? I mean, the Left and their Progressocrat enablers have this romantic attachment to revolution and bloody revolutionaries. At what point does the rhetoric and romanticism boil over into action?
The irony is that the anti-gun and (supposed) anti-violence side of the political spectrum are the most likely to resort to violence and start an armed insurrection. And won’t they be surprised when they find out that their caricature of a good ol’ boy, clinging to his religion and his guns isn’t a caricature at all.
I have my Black Rifle. Don’t you?
And a few handguns, as well.
Any thoughts about this? Maybe I am overreacting, but being from Wisconsin, I’m appalled that we are being treated like some country needing to have it’s election monitored. According to the DOJ release, they monitor elections every year (but not in all jurisdictions).
DOJ to monitor Wisconsin recall election
Wonder if there is a political connection?
As reported in a previous Water Cooler post Obama Campaign strategist David Axelrod told reporters on Sunday that an “army of lawyers” will be in the Badger state “to protect” the vote during the recall election.
Memo to Axelrod: Bring it on, fat boy!
I’ve worked to monitor Wisconsin elections in 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2010. The polls need monitoring because, in at least select locations, the poll workers don’t follow the rules. So yes, the elections need to be monitored. I expect, however, the the DOJ isn’t going to do much to make sure Wisconsin law is being followed by the election workers.
Why does the rabble of leftist radicals converging on Wisconsin remind me of a Supernatural episode?
They’re the early test cases infected with the Croatoan virus.
Mayor Barrett has more or less said that if elected, he will end the “civil war” – if Walker prevails, we will indeed have a civil war. I think the gauntlet is being thrown down.
Complaint filed with FCC alleges WISN, WTMJ radio bias on recall
I fully expect that if Walker wins, the election will be litigated from here to eternity.
I have lived in Wisconsin for the past 15 years, having moved here from San Diego. The story is too long to tell. Anyhow, Wisconsin is an odd place! It has a history of “progressive” politics, but it is truly a “police state” in regard to everyday issues. Quite a paradox!
The fact that the Marine was arrested yesterday for protesting at a Barrett rally does not surprise me at all! It is absolutely outrageous that the Marine was arrested while the police (Barrett’s troupe) said he was not arrested.
Par for the course!
It would be interesting (at least to me) to see what precautions are being taken in anticipation of Occupy Wisconsin vs any Tea Party rallies there or really anywhere.
I heard but have not varified that at the recent Occupy Chicago during the NATO summit meetings there were multiple arrests and riot squads had to put down demonatrations.
Compare that with a Tea Party rally where they normally leave the place cleaner than when they arrived and to date I have not see police in riot gear at any events. I have heard, although not varified that they actually gave water and ice teo to officers, how rude.
The LEOs at the rallies I’ve been to LOVE the duty.
This is nothing but a dress rehearsal for what they anticipate to do this November all over the country if Obama loses by a landslide. Mark my words.
Fine. If they want to sh*t in their pants for all the world to see, so be it.
We normal folks get the big picture and are not deterred nor demoralized by a bunch of rabble-rousing misfits.
And they might find out how we bitter clingers respond to their childish antics.
I suspect if we dug deep enough, it is an effort by Van Jones to revitalize the Occupy movement.
The perpetual revolution of the perpetually revolting. They have no idea how to govern, only protest. They live in the richest, freest and most generous nation in the history of man and yet inhabit an impenetrable shell of bitterness, grievance and ingratitude.
Is it by chance that Idiot Showoff Day is the same as The Finding of Lost Ballot Boxes Day? No, No, nothing to see there. Look over here!
The significance of this (recall) election is STILL understated.
Having followed it closely from day 1, I can tell you this is nothing short of Greeks marching headlong into Berlin, and demanding their paychecks.
Think about it.
So long as the narrative exists–that “government” money is separate and independent from the public–
That the fire fighter or teacher fails to understand that his neighbor–the plumber, landscaper, butcher–is responsible for his paycheck–
We are Greece.
If you get the chance..
live stream Charlie Syke’s radio show the next few days-
620 am- Milwaukee (mornings, before Rush)
The guy is good…real good.
This gang just does not get the concept of democracy and the will of the people. They are all totalitarians.
Come on really? Cant those Union Thugs and there followers realize If walker Wins and Barret loses 2 years in a row that Walker is the better man! He will keep moving Wis forward!
Why do they have to keep fighting and making wisconisn hell just because they cant get there way! Dont they realize if this recall dosent do it! nothing WILL!
For an understanding of all that is going on, you might want to view the documentary: “The Rise and Fall of The Third Reich:”
What if : With alot of these groups. Each malcontent has their own org./ piece of the pie. They all then join each others org’s. That way it looks like there are a lot of groups with alot of members.
“Unions, teachers, grad students, Occupiers, Progressive Democrats of America….
Will teachers and union members continue to allow their organizers to embrace these affiliations?”
Duh, they are the affiliates.
“Milwaukee Fransiscan Action Network”?
I imagine they don’t have any sort of standing in the Church…
