The Left’s Endless and Unfair War on Scott Walker
Walker has been a great governor for Wisconsin but he made the mistake of proving that public employee unions are an arm of the Democratic Party so he’s public enemy #1 to many on the left.
He managed to get re-elected with more votes in a recall election, so you know he’s doing something right.
George F. Will: The nastiest political tactic this year
The early-morning paramilitary-style raids on citizens’ homes were conducted by law enforcement officers, sometimes wearing bulletproof vests and lugging battering rams, pounding on doors and issuing threats. Spouses were separated as the police seized computers, including those of children still in pajamas. Clothes drawers, including the children’s, were ransacked, cellphones were confiscated and the citizens were told that it would be a crime to tell anyone of the raids.
Some raids were precursors of, others were parts of, the nastiest episode of this unlovely political season, an episode that has occurred in an unlikely place. This attempted criminalization of politics to silence people occupying just one portion of the political spectrum has happened in Wisconsin, which often has conducted robust political arguments with Midwestern civility.
If this had happened under Bush, the left might have called it fascism.
And by might, I mean would.
