Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, Punked by News Media Over Protest

Post by Guest on Wed Feb 23, 2011 2:30 pm

It appears that Wisconsin Governor, Scott Walker, has been punked by a news media website, pretending to be David Koch. Check out the article at Huffington Post:

Not only that, but Walker is being told that Wisconsin stands to lose $46.6 billion dollars in Federal aid if the anti-Union bill passes. Apparently, if union workers had collective bargaining rights at the time that Federal assistance was first granted, then they risking losing a huge chunk of Federal aid.

OMG! What I find really disturbing, however, is that Reps. Tamara Grigsby (D-Milwaukee) and Penny Bernard Schaber are basically trying to bail Walker out with their ammendment that would protect transit workers along with "public safety" workers. Give me a break! The Dems need to stand together on this issue! An attack on one is an attack on ALL!! Solidarity Forever!

The phone call and lengthy article about the Koch imposter is available on Mother Jones (LINK BELOW) with link to the Milwaukee Journal confirming that the Gov. did take the call (LINK ALSO BELOW). After listening to its content I'm still reeling that the Governor had such a "frank" discussion with the Koch impersonator and there was excitement in the voice of the Governor when the impersonator said he'd bring him to California after he was done crushing the "expletive" Really, listen to the entire interview.

In
that now infamous phone call, Governor Walker sounded like a senior
executive reporting corporate developments to his boss, the CEO.

Oh wait, David Koch IS Governor Walkers's boss! I guess it makes sense, then.



I found this comment on FB. It made me laugh.

I was wondering that myself, that and the story about Jeff Cox, the deputy attorney general from Indiana who said that live ammunition should be used on the protesters in Madison.

Actually if it really happened, Governor Walker sounded like a reasonable man. But the Murphy guy running the scam came off sounding like a class-A, bigoted, sexist jackwipe. But then we're talking about a Democrat public union sympathizer. So that's not a stretch.
What's funny is that anyone would think that this little act makes the Governor look bad. Sheesh.

Yes, because obviously democrats have a reputation for being sexist and bigoted.

Walker sounded like a reasonable man? He talked about bringing in troublemakers to disrupt the protest and as an excuse to use force, he said he wanted to end all union rights for workers everywhere with his state being the first, he said he wanted to trick the democratic senators into coming back so they could pass the bill anyway, that is not democracy. He sounded like a dictator, like a fascist. I suppose this is reasonable to you though.
