So, people try to recall one of the fleabaggers and the union brownshirts show up to stop it with force. Way to allow the voice of the people to decide the issues there commies.The petition rally was originally scheduled at a local Merrill restaurant but was relocated after the proprietors received many phone calls and felt they needed to back out. The committee then set up in front of the Lincoln County Courthouse to offer citizens an opportunity to sign their names to the petition. Over 1,000 calls had been sent out the previous day notifying area residents of the petition rally.
Upon arrival, members of the recall committee were encircled by union protesters carrying signs and a leader with a mega phone who began chanting and ranting loudly. They packed in tightly around the petition collection table so as to prevent those attempting to sign from doing so. At one point, a pro union protester, pretending to be interested in signing the petition, wrote profanity across a partially collected petition form, than began ripping up the completed petitions that were in close proximity.
The Rest of the Story
This is becoming all too typical of the left. When they don't get their way, they abandon the democratic process and rule of law entirely and simply throw a temper tantrum. I for don't think they should be able to call themselves the Democratic party anymore considering they obviously no longer support democracy.
I don't know why I only heard about this from some obscure link on moonbattery to a local affiliate. If this had been Tea Party protesters preventing Wisconsin libs from signing a petition to recall a Republican Senator [which would never happen], this would have been on every cable and broadcast news channel 20 times a day for months on end. Since it's commie hacks jackbooting around, it gets a pass.
