Hot Air’s video shows the shame of Wisconsin. You have to see it to believe it. The clip is long and the key moment doesn’t come until 2:50 in, but you won’t be able to look away. The savior here, in the orange union t-shirt and sportsjacket, is Democratic Rep. Brett Hulsey; behind him, with white hair and glasses, is Republican Sen. Glenn Grothman. Watch and try to imagine what might have happened had Hulsey not been there. Even some of the protesters are sufficiently alarmed to start a chant of “peace-ful” to calm the more unruly ones down.
The question is not whether the Unions have been violent. We have seen many images of Union members physically assaulting those who disagree with them. Where is the press on this? Where is the outrage from the media at a legislative representative being assaulted on the steps of the Wisconsin Capital Building?
Our newspapers no longer exist as mediums of information.
