Tea Party to rally for Wisconsin anti-union bill
'Meeting fire with fire' after moves by Democrats block Republican vote

MADISON, Wis. — With Republican state lawmakers stymied over plans to pass an anti-union bill, and Gov. Scott Walker saying he would not compromise, Tea Party activists joined in the controversy by organizing a rally Saturday in support of the legislation.

Drew Ryun, president of American Majority Action, one of the conservative groups planning the demonstration, said organizers were "meeting fire with fire."

"We have buses coming in from all over the state," Ryun said of what was dubbed the "I Stand With Scott Walker" rally. "We see this as the opening salvo of the 2012 election season. The Tea Party movement facing off against the unions. And we like the odds."

Walker on Friday ruled out a compromise proposed by a key union to retain collective bargaining rights in exchange for public workers accepting benefit cuts.

Koch Industries Slashed WI Jobs, Helped Elect Scott Walker, Now Orchestrating Pro-Walker Protest

A number of the big business interests standing with Walker are beneficiaries of his administration’s tax giveaways. But the greatest ally to Walker is the dirty energy company Koch Industries. In response to the growing protests in Madison, Koch fronts are busing in Tea Party protesters to support Walker and his union-busting campaign. Last night, MSNBC’s Ed Schultz reported on the involvement of Club for Growth and the Koch-financed Americans for Prosperity in the pro-Walker protest scheduled tomorrow.

24. Could we make the teabaggers think they will be harmed and not show up?

Like have a huge kettle of tar kept warm over a fire, lots of fire, and several good size poles?

And when any of them show up make it look like an aisle opens up and they get directed to the spot. Then pretend to run after them.

30. As someone on the radio said, "They DO realize the Teamsters are there, right?"

They could find themselves in the middle of an arse-whoopin'.sounds like a threat and a promise to me. If there's violence we'll know that it was from the teamsters.

Yeah, you do that. And when the unfortunate dorks manning said pot of tar gain about 15 pounds of lead and have those poles stuck up their asses, don't come crying to me.

24 and 30 are prime examples of the civil discourse Obama was calling for, right? Suppress the 1st Amendment rights of those with whom you disagree via threats of violence.
