Walker got it exactly right- unions are like terrorists

At CPAC, Scott Walker made a remark that caught the attention of many of the left, and some on the right:

OXON HILL, Md. (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said Thursday that his experience taking on thousands of protesters in his state helped prepare him to take on terrorists across the world.

The likely Republican presidential contender sparked pointed criticism from labor union leaders across the country after remarks delivered on the first day of the Conservative Political Action Conference in suburban Washington. The annual conference features more than a dozen potential Republican presidential contenders over three days hoping to win over conservative activists.

Asked how he would handle the Islamic State group if elected president, Walker said, “For years I’ve been concerned about that threat, not just abroad but here on American soil.”

“If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world,” he said.

Cue the umbrage!

“It’s disgusting that Gov. Walker would compare everyday heroes – educators – to international terrorists,” said Betsy Kippers, a teacher and president of the Wisconsin Education Association Council.

“Gov. Walker, I know terrorism. I know that your own state’s citizens speaking up for what’s right isn’t terrorism,” said Jim Tucciarelli, a union representative in New York City whose office was one block away from the 9/11 attacks. “Today, after hearing your words, I also know the sound of cowardice.”

This also caught the attention of WisPolitics.com. What makes that interesting is that the editor of WisPolitics is one JR Ross, who has it in for Scott Walker and today labored to resurrect an alleged scandal.

This morning on Fox News even Chris Wallace called it a misstep.

But is it?

The story has fallen off the radar faster than a B2 bomber. Why?

Because the analogy is apt. Unions are like terrorists. They employ terrorist tactics.

Terrorism: the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion.

Terror: something that causes very strong feelings of fear, something that is terrifying

Strong feelings of fear as a means of coercion. Hmmmm. Witness:

Unions disrupt Kansas Legislature

According to reporting by Martin Hawver: “The Kansas House this morning — for the first time in decades — was interrupted by shouting from the balcony by opponents of the bill that would prohibit employers from providing union political action committee checkoff on paychecks.”

Unions Disrupt Traffic But Not Mayor Nutter As Contract Battles Drag On

Members of District Council 33 were joined by PGW workers for a few protest laps around City Hall, blocking traffic around the entire perimeter and creating a massive traffic jam in center city. Union members say they are still looking for what DC 33 leader Pete Matthews calls “a fair contract.”

I love this one:

Union members disrupt cancer charity event

“They think being disruptive for their personal gain is more important than beating pancreatic cancer…”

Americans are historically an understanding and forgiving people.

There are usually few things that the average citizen would consider crossing the line.

Beating puppies, throwing rocks at a station wagon full of nuns, and purposefully attempting to disrupt a fundraiser for one of the deadliest forms of cancer would arguably rate in the top three.

Yet the latter of the three is exactly what union members did recently in New York City.

And this is a beauty:

SEIU illegally storms banker’s property, terrorizes family

Hundreds of Marxist class warfare radicals converged onto the private property of the deputy general counsel of Bank of America, Greg Baer, last Sunday after being shipped in on 14 buses by the unions that got Barack Obama elected.

As Big Government demonstrates, it is part of a much bigger crusade to stir up class tensions by brow-beating, harassing and intimidating business executives into giving them whatever they’ve decided they’re entitled to at the moment.

But unfortunately, Mr. Baer was not home and his young son had to lock himself in the bathroom as these degenerates terrorized him for hours.

These are the same people who relentlessly bullied banks into lowering their lending standards and giving more bad loans to unqualified people…which created this culture of unaccountable lending that eventually destroyed the economy.

“Terrorizes family”, as in “terrorists.”

Union members stormed the Wisconsin State Capitol in 2011. Some of the same protesters invaded the properties of some legislators, forcing them and their families to abandon their homes for safety. These fine citizens caused $7.5 million in damages to the Capitol and left some .22 shells sitting around.

More recently when unions were angry with Scott Walker, those “heroes” and “educators” decided to terrorize Scott Walker’s parents:

After storming the Wisconsin State House and countless events featuring Governor Walker, the angry mob of union protesters has reached a new low — protesting outside the home of the governor’s parents.

Unions even resort to shooting those who step out of line.

Did you know that the group Islamic Jihad has its own union?

Scott Walker is right. If he can handle these unions, he can handle ISIS. ISIS might even be easier.

So why did this story vanish?

Because the media doesn’t want you to see what you just read.

DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    Dr. John, Thanks for the post. I agreed with Walker when he made the statement. Just watching videos of the unions in action proves the point.

    After reading all those horrid actions by union representatives it seems petty to recall how the unions treated the polished ancient marble at the Wisconsin Capitol rotundra.
    I had read that their callous acts of taping protest signs (too lazy to hold them?) to that marble caused tens of thousands of dollars in damage to the stonework.

    Since Walker’s 3rd election as Gov. in Wisconsin the numbers of union members has dropped.
    Maybe he does know how to deal with ISIS, too.

    Fear – Right on point, Dr.J. Beginning with recruitment, Union leaders use it to motivate membership, including personal threats of physical harm. There’s a reason the term “Union Thug” exists in our language.

    There you go again!
    How dare you depend on specific instances of SEIU thuggery?
    What’s wrong with you?
    They are good people. Just ask them. Stay away from facts. In your heart you know they are for the little people. Just ignore their huge salaries. Pay no attention to their diversion of union dues to political campaigns. Get straight, John.
    Otherwise you will soon be getting your own brick bat, right in the head! There is no tolerance here. It is the SEIU way or exile. In Guantanamo Bay. For re-education. At your own expense.

    Dr J is a terrorist he is always trying to frighten people
    Remember the millions could die from Ebola because Obama is African or something ?
    We are being invaded by sick kids with measles!
    What next? Net neutrality is going to stuff gay porn down the throats of kids ?

    It’s a bit ironic that Democrats have no problem comparing Tea Party supporters to terrorists but when it goes the other way, holy cow we have faux outrage galore across the liberal spectrum…

    On the advertisement just to the right it said I should help Nurse Claire
