There will be a short break from ethanol plants while I let off a little steam of my own. It’s a gentle rant and don’t worry: I’ll be back to normal tomorrow.
I live in the great state of Wisconsin and our governor, Scott Walker, is making a run at the Republican nomination for President of the United States for 2016.
A few days ago, addressing a national high profile conservative gathering, he explained that he was perfectly prepared to deal with ISIS and other global terrorist threats because he’d stood up to 100,000 protesters in the state capital. Also, citing those same protest marches (there were many) and demonstrations, he explained that he was the right man to go nose to nose with Vladimir Putin. Putin would back down because Walker had proven to be resolute in the face of the protests across the state.
Please, let me show you the faces of some of those hardened terrorists Walker is referring to who exercised their rights to gather and protest the actions of their elected officials. And, yes: your friend, Wabi Sabi, was one of them.
Wisconsin Terrorists: Even When We’re Angry, We’re Really Nice About It
Finally, a Terrorist Family Portrait:
My eldest son messaged me after hearing Walker’s ISIS/Wisconsin correlation and asked if being the son of Jihadi Patricia was going to land him on a no-fly list.
These pictures were taken in 2011 and 2012 at protest marches in Madison. While I had started out carrying a sign, I soon abandoned that in favor of documenting the events with my camera. Walker quickly walked back that assertion that teachers, librarians and other public sector protesters are the same as international terrorists, though not before hundreds of mocking posts sprang up on the internet.
