Progressives, such as online cult leader and supposedly great political analyst, Charles “Icarus” Johnson, complained when some Tea Party activists had posters of Obama as Hitler. As we know, this was mainly the Larouchers, who are themselves a cult. Either way it was a small segment of the Tea Party movement that did this. Yet leftists, like a certain unemployed Californian, are silent as Progressive public sector workers in Wisconsin compare their governor to Hitler and Mussolini.
The Republican governor of Wisconsin Scott Walker is attempting to prevent the teachers unions from abusing their collective bargaining powers. The teachers pay nothing towards their health care and pensions. This has led to a state deficit and and long term debt. Walker’s budget wanted to restrict pay increases to cost of living and force the workers to pay towards their pensions and health coverage. This is something that private sector workers do and they make less money. Clearly something must be done as this is not fair to the taxpayers of Wisconsin.
MADISON, Wis. – Faced with a near-certain Republican victory that would end a half-century of collective bargaining for public workers, Wisconsin Democrats retaliated with the only weapon they had left: They fled.
Fourteen Democratic lawmakers disappeared from the Capitol on Thursday, just as the Senate was about to begin debating the measure aimed at easing the state’s budget crunch.
By refusing to show up for a vote, the group brought the debate to a swift halt and hoped to pressure Republicans to the negotiating table.
In addition to eliminating collective-bargaining rights, the legislation also would make public workers pay half the costs of their pensions and at least 12.6 percent of their health care coverage — increases Walker calls “modest” compared with those in the private sector.

The public sector unions have caused a fiscal crisis for the states. Public pay in many states is now more than private pay. This is an economic imbalance that is hurting this nation. Governor Scott Walker is tackling the problem head on to improve his state’s economic competitiveness, something Progressives don’t grasp nor care about.
As usual not only is the state union protesting, but they are receiving assistance from the regime of Community organizer in chief, Barack Hussein Obama. His Organizing for America group is sending advisers to assist the teacher’s union. Clearly this is outside interference in a local matter. This typical of what 3rd World regimes do and Obama is implementing this for America.
Here is video clip of some of the signs the Obama backed protesters were
The failed California programmer praised these protests. Progressives like him are OK with Republicans being called Nazis or Fascists, but they get upset when they are compared to it. The real reason why Charles “Icarus” Johnson is OK with the Nazi comparisons is because he believes that Conservatives are Nazis. Chuck believes that these protesters really are fighting Nazis and that’s his reason for supporting them.
Progressives are hypocrites and Chuck the failed blogger turned online cult leader is just an example of this. Civility for thee, but not for me. This is why Conservatives must show the left no mercy. Politics is war through other means.
