From using Nazi references to adorning the American Flag with political bumper stickers and using it as a poncho, the full extremism of the left was on display in Madison, Wisconsin this weekend.
Rejecting any attempts at conveying a ‘New Tone,’ pro-labor union activists attempt to drown out speakers at the tea party rally at the State Capitol on April 16, 2011.
Rally speakers included John Fund of the Wall Street Journal, conservative media maven Andrew Breitbart and former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin. However, the protesters did their best to prevent those in attendance from hearing any of them.
Last weekend, we saw the left out in full force – not only in Madison, but Portland, Phoenix, Boston, and elsewhere, trying to drown out the tea party. Not content to respectfully counter protest by displaying their own messages, they aimed to disrupt, and shut down stronger voices.
After losing big in November, and in union reform budget battles all across the nation, their desperation is clearly showing. Their clanging cowbells sound like a death rattle to me.
