Fascist Occupiers Try to Shout Down Governor Walker
by John Hinderaker at Powerline
The Occupiers’ outrages are piling up so rapidly it is hard to keep up with them. This one happened Thursday morning, but I first learned of it this afternoon via Ann Althouse. Governor Scott Walker spoke at a breakfast at the Union League Club in Chicago. The event was infiltrated by a group of around 50 Occupy Chicago protesters whom the Chicago Tribune describes as “union-backed.” Just after Governor Walker began speaking, the Occupiers stood up and started reading–screaming, actually–in unison from scripts they carried in their hands. The effect was truly creepy:
The sickos succeeded in delaying Governor Walker’s speech by around six minutes before they were escorted from the room. Althouse says:
The rudeness is sickening. I don’t understand how the protesters imagine that they will win support from anyone that way. … It only makes him look better.
That’s true, of course. The more people see of the Occupiers, the less they like them. This episode was interesting in that the Occupiers’ fascist tendencies were in sharp relief as they tried to bully the audience by yelling their script in unison. I can’t imagine that more than one percent of the population would want to be governed by such misfits.
