Wisconsin people and their various signs... at the protest today.

A man hunches grimly over his drawing of a fist — with the slogan "Solidarity"...

There's this...

I asked the woman if by "Dread Scott" — evoking the Dred Scott case — she meant to suggest a connection between Scott Walker and the era of slavery. She said "Of course."

And this...

The message is "Dumb Puppet" and "F— F—" which means — I don't know — fuck face? I liked the graphic though. I told the woman it was my favorite of all the Walker caricatures I'd seen, and she said it was made by her son (who's in back with the x's on green glasses). [ADDED: Commenters are saying it's "F minus," written twice.]

And these kids...

I asked him if the point was that they liked that "Hide Your Kids" YouTube guy, and they said yes. (It seems charming, but if you understand the reference, it is portraying Walker as a rapist.)

I think "F-" is a grade.

Woof beat me to it.

Wait... I thought Circus World was in Baraboo. When did it move to Madison?

Nah, can't be Circus World. Too many clowns.

Although I hear a rumor that 14 of the clowns are AWOL.

How intelligent.

F- is as stupid as those that say they're going to give 130%.

Why not 175%?

You know I thought the Packer fans were the biggest bunch of dunderheads in the Midwest but these guys take the cake.

He's projecting. He can't get it up for the redhead next to him unless he engages in rape fantasy.

Bet the one woman couldn't write a paragraph on what Dred Scott was.

Too bad public education has been entrusted to union slugs and Leftists like William Ayers.

Then people under 40 would know what it's supposed to signify.

Trooper York said...

Well since she is a typical teacher she thinks Dred Scott was the guy who invented Dred Locks.

And since they don't seem to let any black people into Madison there is no one to set her straight.

nothing says solidarity like crying your union will fold if the government doesn't collect dues for you

This is going to turn out to be a massive "own goal" for the protesters.

Their tactics remind me of nothing so much as Sheriff Bart in "Blazing Saddles" ... pointing a gun at his own head:

"Hold it! Next man makes a move, the teacher gets it!"

Obama told a Milwaukee television reporter on Thursday, taking the unusual step of inviting a local TV station into the White House for a sit-down interview. "I think everybody's got to make some adjustments, but I think it's also important to recognize that public employees make enormous contributions to our states and our citizens."

Not to mention "enormous contributions" to Obama's political campaign.

I'm guessing my mother's old scold "You should be grateful to HAVE a job" would just piss these people off even more.

Chris said...

Of course I forget...it's not their jobs they're fighting for. It's HUMANITY.
