The Most Dangerous Man in America?

The Most Dangerous Man in America?

According to WaPo columnist Dana Milbank, possibly.

While the ire of the media has been focused mostly on Donald Trump for the past few news cycles, Scott Walker is still getting some scorn.

This column by Dana Milbank at The Washington Post could all but be a campaign poster for walker, with a few wording changes:

Why Scott Walker is so dangerous [to liberals]

Why Scott Walker is so dangerous:

“First off,” Scott Walker proclaimed, “we took on the unions, and we won. We won!”

Taking on the unions is usually first off for Walker, the Wisconsin governor and Republican presidential candidate. It is the very rationale for his candidacy. And on Thursday, he took a detour from the campaign trail to appear here before the annual meeting of the conservative American Legislative Exchange Council, a group of state legislators dedicated in large part to defeating unions….

Walker then went on to celebrate his triumphs over the demonstrators who objected to his dismantling of Wisconsin’s public-sector unions, portraying the pro-union forces as violent thugs….

This is the essence of Walker’s appeal — and why he is so dangerous. He is not as outrageous as Donald Trump and Sen.­­ Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but his technique of scapegoating unions for the nation’s ills is no less demagogic.

Then Milbank just gets stupid and pathetic, comparing Walker to Joe McCarthy because they were both from Wisconsin.  But back to the quasi- unintended endorsement:

He denounced the protests against his efforts to undo the unions as “thuggery.” He described collective bargaining as a “corrupt system” and diagnosed union leaders as having a “sense of entitlement.” After beating public-sector unions and surviving recall, Walker this year signed anti-union right-to-work legislation.

And the problem is? Milbank doesn’t get it.

Here’s the actual Walker speech at ALEC:

I LOVES me some Walker.

    Dana Milbank has been a reliable source for Democratic talking points ever since he first came to WaPo.

    If Milbank if for it, I am against it. And anyone he dislikes, I like.

    Walker’s biggest advantage over a large field of well-qualified candidates is that he underwent the most thorough vetting of any political figure in modern history. If he had soiled his diaper in public as a baby, we would know about it. The unions pulled no punches in fighting Walker, and emerged 0-4 in a blue state (including the Chief Justice election, which might have overturned his reforms).

Walker remains my #1 choice at present. Well, since neither Chuck Norris nor Ted Nugent have filed as yet.

I would vote for Walker, happily.

    Also, I recall the news stories. Wisconsin’s public-sector unions, or the people they hired to protest on their behalf, acted like violent thugs….

It is a mark of honor that he has no college degree, but more that his has fought the harshest of attacks in the media and by legal system “officers” using both swat teams of thugs in uniforms with badges and sworn oaths and mighty lawyers applying criminal lawfare against him to a standstill, and more — to victory.

    Walker is indeed a mighty “sovereign citizen”, we should all feel empowered by his clam demeanor and restrained emotion in countering the worse the modern leviathan of socialisms and amoral administrative statism can throw at him.

      Henry Hawkins in reply to bvw. | July 30, 2015 at 9:12 pm

      Define “clam demeanor” that I might identify it if encountered. (lol)

      Ragspierre in reply to bvw. | July 31, 2015 at 3:53 pm

      I bet he has a driver’s license and complies with police if he’s stopped.

      Whatdaya thank…???

        Harriet Tubman. Poster Ragspierre since you asked, I’m answering. I see a man who’d give more consideration to a Harriet Tubman type of character than a acned-25 year college cop trying to piss off free citizens with harassment of trivialities like missing front license plates. The kind of bozo that gives decent detectives and beat walkers a bad bad name.

Look for the Non-Union label…for our nation’s health.

Pretty scary stuff, eh Milbank? You might want to check how much the union coffers have shrunk since teachers can now choose whether or not to pay dues. Do ya think maybe a major percentage of teachers didn’t agree with the loud mouths we all saw in the news?

This is looking like a bike race. Trump is in front cutting the media wind for the rest of the pack but will finish 5th-8th.

I hope Walker wins the sprint.

To pick out one statement to slam a man does not surprise me, sounds like he might offend the left and the main reason is they have nothing else to slam, to this does not constitute being the most dangerous man.
