Union thug, Gilbert Johnson, President AFSCME Local 82 in Milwaukee, gave a speech the day after the recall election where he bashed the "teabag" crowd and said that they want to go back to the days of lynchings.
Johnson, accompanied by cheers from the crowd, referred to members of the Tea Party as a "bunch of haters." He said that they "want to go back to the '50's" where there was "white man rule".
His unifying and hopeful speech gets even better. After hating on conservatives, he expressed a desire for unity in America. He says, "The statistic came out that the minority population would soon be exceeding the white population and all the sudden we start having fear!" According to him, white people (or the tea party?) say "Let's get guns! ... Let's go back to the 50s way, where we can just kill people and hang people and lets go back to that time that we are trying to get far away from."
He lamented that "that's what we're up against. We're up against people....that want to concentrate on those kinds of things." He said that the opposition is saying, "You can have guns and be hateful, and that's okay in Wisconsin...but we're gonna tell them that's not ok in Wisconsin, it will never be okay in Wisconsin."
The union thug continues to ironically say, "We're here today because we're saying Hell no to hate!"
Now that the race baiting portion of the speech is done, now it is time to attack the rich! He continues, "Now we have a state that says, 'the only people that should profit are the rich and those dumb enough to vote with them!" During the recall campaign, "we were bombarded that people who were so selfish, they didn't want to pay a little bit more to get our state back in order, they think that we, the people who are poor and in need should do the sacrificing and they should do the rejoicing."
The wake of this recall election has been very telling; one Tom Barrett supporter actually slapped him when she felt he conceded too early. Whether it is "Kill Scott Walker" tweets, charges of the election being "bought," or charges of "Robocalls", some of those who supported Tom Barrett are showing their true colors.
Johnson said that the recall election wasn't against business or the republicans, but about being fair to everyone. "We will continue to fight until victory is ours and justice is done!" Perhaps the unions and the Barrett supporters can find more productive ways to promote their causes.
