Chuck Lane: Is anyone going to apologize for demonizing Scott Walker?

posted at 9:31 pm on June 6, 2012 by Allahpundit

Based on Twitter reaction, I’m going to guess no. But he’s speaking rhetorically here, of course. The point isn’t to ask for an apology that’ll never come, it’s to remind the left that they were the ones who framed this as an argument over who really speaks for “the people.” Last night, that argument was finally settled.

This is what democracy looks like:

This rhetoric wasn’t just hyperbolic. It was strategically suicidal. The unions and their various apologists whipped progressive Wisconsin into such a frenzy — falsely claiming, for example, that Walker was about to unleash the National Guard — that the anti-Walker forces could no longer perceive political reality…

It turns out that noisy demonstrations, swollen by such people’s tribunes as the University of Wisconsin teaching assistants union, do not represent public opinion in the state as a whole. The purported tyrant of Madison actually enjoyed the support of a solid majority of Wisconsinites — just as he did in November 2010, when he was first elected. The unions’ claim to represent the “people” and the “middle class” stands exposed as propaganda. Even a third of voters who live in union-member households backed Walker.

But Walker bought the election with corporate money from out of state! Of all the excuses being offered today, this is the most pathetic. Of course Walker exploited existing state campaign-finance law to raise as much money as possible wherever he could. What the heck did his opponents expect him to do? Unilaterally disarm?…

But Walker’s critics were right about one thing: democracy was at issue in this struggle. What they got wrong is which side was actually upholding democratic values.

Follow the link to see what he means by that last bit. Spoiler alert: He’s in sync with Mickey Kaus, another Democrat who’s squeamish about the power of public employee unions because they’re a cancer on the progressive paradigm of clean, efficient, effective government. If you’re a believer in using state power to do good, then you probably don’t want to vote for letting the state get captured by union rent-seekers who’ll bleed it of ever larger amounts of tax revenue. If, however, you believe that the state can only do good with Democrats in office and that the only way to keep Democrats in office is to make sure PEUs keep them flush with kickbacks in the form of campaign donations, then yeah, obviously Scott Walker is Hitler. The Democratic vote last night was transparently all about making sure that a key client can continue to raid the public treasury so that some of their take can continue to be diverted to left-wing candidates. That’s the price they’re willing to pay for, ahem, “clean, effective, efficient government.”

Lane makes an excellent point too about the strategic propulsion of the left’s anti-Walker hyperbole. Don’t overlook that as an answer to the question befuddling some Dems today about why they went ahead with this dumb recall in the first place. How could they have refused? They had a big Two Minutes Hate outside the capitol last year that was their first show of strength since getting wiped out in the midterms. They convinced themselves that they were dealing with the Grim Reaper of the blue social model even though Walker’s reforms were relatively mild and probably won’t be followed with any further dramatic moves (at least in the near term). So they decided they had to beat him, and they failed, and now they’ve built him up to the point where he kind of is the Grim Reaper of the blue social model — symbolically, as an example to other fiscal conservatives of what’s possible in an America that’s watching Greece with dread. They sailed a sea of venom all the way to defeat. No wonder there’s so much schadenfreude on the right today.

Via the Daily Caller, here’s a little man-on-the-street tribute to cancer survivor — and now recall survivor — Rebecca Kleefisch. Content warning.

I used to be a Teamster. The industry I was in is on it’s deathbed: Freight. Not once did I ever hear threats of bodily harm from union members toward the company, or vice-versa. Had that happened I would have called the police and expected some sort of criminal harassment charges to be filed. Or at the very least, some job firings.

This is nothing short of criminal. Why is this allowed to continue. Does it come to a point where one of these scumbags threatens me on my own doorstep and I am not allowed to protect my self?

Given what has happened to Milwaukee under Barrett I don’t get why anarchists would want him gone- he has helped the city slip further into their desired “utopia,” at least once the police start accurately reporting crimes it seems- maybe the just missed that the police stats were found to be as substantive as unicorns riding rainbows or the reliability of exit polls.

Of course not. Liberals/Progressives never “apologize.”

To do so would illustrate the vapidity of their arguments, the coarseness of their dialogue and the bankruptcy of their ideas.

These are the folks who still would like to lynch Walker. Romney, too.

The same people who see nothing wrong at all with having illegals vote, or union thugs intimidate workers, and pay-to-play being the new norm in the Nation’s capital.

The same ilk that would rather see this Nation destroyed rather than admit to error.

If they had any tiny bit of decency and honor, they’d be marching on Washington right now, demanding the impeachment of President Obama for war crimes, among other high crimes and misdemeanors…they’d be demanding his head on a platter for his continued conduct of a so-called illegal war, his spending of billions of taxpayer dollars to reward friends and supporters…or his Department of Justice being about anything but the rule of law and jurisprudence.

Not gonna happen, either…they have no decency nor honor…that stuff is for chumps out in fly-over America where we cling to our Bibles and guns and demand respect for our Constitution.

I think it’s time for our illustrious free press to start asking union leaders and Democrats, what they plan on doing to bring about reconciliation with Republicans. I’m personally annoyed at the press for talking about how it’s the responsibility of Governor Walker to bring the 2 sides together. It’s the responsiblity of the Democrat leadership to acknowledge that they’ve been extremely divisive this past year and to vow to try and work with the governor and Republicans to solve the problems of the State of Wisconsin.

Now that would be a start. I don’t expect it to happen and I don’t expect the media to do their job either.

Nah. Wisconsin police and DOJ – state employee union members. It seems that virtually none of the criminals in this play have been touched by the WI-Dems’ pet law enforcement charade.

Odd. I’m still showing it (the link is in my 9:37 post above). Pressed F5/refresh a few times and it’s still there as of 10:15pm.

I agree with the latter part of your post, and I’m still terribly amused that he pushed the anti-R “War on Women” propaganda so hard. Oopsies!

Ahh, it was posted on another thread? Your link isn’t to this thread (at least not visible to me on this thread) so I hope he was banished.

But we usually get a post from the banish-er about the banish-ee, so we may suffer more posts from….uppyerasssideways? (as someone here hilariously calls it).

I hope not. It adds nothing to the site, not even page-hits.

The unions and their various apologists whipped progressive Wisconsin into such a frenzy — falsely claiming, for example, that Walker was about to unleash the National Guard — that the anti-Walker forces could no longer perceive political reality

Umm, I think Progressives start out no longer perceiving political reality. It’s part and parcel of the definition. The unions and other Leftist special interest groups merely take advantage of it.

The battle is over and now you want to bayonet the wounded. Let them bleed to death. It’s more fun that way.

I will right after you are done sucking me off sis.

I cannot believe that they didn’t ban that creep.

Oh, don’t you worry. Uppereastside’s day is coming. It’s only a matter of time. Every troll on this board has gotten banned eventually. They can’t help it.

The hate-Palin crowd is stirred up once more, revealing their ignorance in new and exciting ways.

The brain-lock these folks live within is interesting, if nothing else. They spew at Palin, calling her a bad sport for still being around (or for still breathing) after “she lost in 2008″, while in the midst of wailing and gnashing their teeth about losing Tuesday. As always, liberals want it both ways, and are incapable of seeing any hypocrisy or irony in their words or deeds.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Is anyone going to send the unions a bill for the damages to the State House buildings when they protested last year that amounted into the millions? Oh, I guess the taxpayers will be billed for the damages caused by the unions.
