A Thank You Letter to the Left

To all leftists, occupiers, unionistas and malcontents, Thank you!

What an election! We couldn’t have done it without you. Without your tantrums, outbursts and boorish behavior we might have stayed home for this election. Without your filthy, pot smoking hemp -headed minions occupying and violating the Capitol we might have been complacent. Without your obnoxious protests, boycotts and other actions from your union playbook, we might have sat this one out.

But you couldn’t hold back. You couldn’t restrain yourselves and behave like adults. You couldn’t accept the 2010 election results. We sat and watched as you erupted in a juvenile hissy fit that embarrassed Wisconsin. The spectacle you created is what motivated us. And thanks to your ill-mannered behavior, we won. We turned out. Big time! And now we are organized and energized. Committed. “All in”. And we aren’t going away. We now have our own organizations (no dues required), an army of volunteers and the means to communicate. And countless new sources of funding, including a donor base from all 50 states. And we have “iverifythe recall” to ferret out your infiltrators in our future local elections.

So thank you Mike Tate, Graeme Zielinski, Fred “Loonie” Levenhagen, Ismael Ozanne, Maryanne Sumi, Noble Ray, Charles Tubbs, Joanne Kloppenberg, Segway Boy, John Chisolm, public employee union members, UW TA’s, WEAC, SEIU, MTI, AFSCME Council 24 in Union Grove and WI prison guards,. Thanks for the death threats, the intimidation, the bullying, belligerence, thuggery and goonish behavior.

The lack of ethics and the failure to enforce rules and laws.

Thank you for putting your selfish, greedy motives on display for all taxpayers to see.

Your antics might have made you feel good but they didn’t make you look good.

They sickened the rest of us.

Thank you Shirley Abrahamson and Ann Walsh Bradley. Your petty politics woke us up.

Thanks you Miles Kristan for dumping the beer on Robin Vos’s head.

Thank you University doctors for writing the phony excuses; Madison teachers for calling in sick or dragging your students to the protests without permission.

Thank you Katherine Windels for making death threats against the Governor.

The noontime capitol singers who taunted Sheboygan high school students.

Thank you WEA Trust for raping Wisconsin taxpayers.

Thank you Gwen Moore for your embarrassing minstrel show.

And thanks all of you for harassing the Walker family at their private home.

You have all been exposed.

Your tactics have been rejected.

Your bad behavior has been forever captured on You Tube.

Thank you Peter Barca and fellow Assembly members for donning your foolish orange T-shirts and screaming “shame” at legislators just doing their jobs.

Thank you Mark Miller and all 14 senators for fleeing the state and making fools of yourselves in the process. Illinois need a few more village idiots.

Thanks for showing us what democracy doesn’t look like.

And Mayor Barrett. How grateful we are that you chose one low road after another in your issue-less campaign against the Governor. This was your strike three. You are out. Take a seat on the bench and stay there. I have a hunch this was your final at-bat.

All of you helped turn Wisconsin permanently red.

Your Governor, Scott Walker, will not just complete his first term, he is all but assured as many future terms as he seeks. He will be your governor for a long, long time. Get used to it. And his national “rock star” status just might lead him to be your President some day.

Just think, it couldn’t have happened without you!

So to all of you blue fisters, thank you from the bottom of my happy, red heart.

Sincerely,

A Wisconsin taxpayer

"Leftists." There's that word again. It's the new "Democrat party."

I love how these nutjobs like to point out that they're taxpayers. Here's your fucking cookie.

I didn't read it, but it smells like a gloat.

Are. You. Kidding Me. :evil:

Is this really the attitude you're proud of? What you hope for, for the future of this state? This is the world you want to live in? This is not the Wisconsin we need to present. After all of Gov. Walker's "don't let Wisconsin become like Milwaukee" rhetoric - which went unaddressed, though is the clearest race-baiting to date from the right - this is the mindset you embody. Charming.

The arc of history is long...

Is there some limit to the number of nearly identical sock puppets on the forum? At some point Gresham's law kicks in, you know.

Really, I'm starting to warm to "leftist." Sounds so radical... so dirty... so tough. "Yeah mofos, I'm a LEFTIST, whatcha gonna do?!" Certainly more respectable and mysterious than "thug," don't you think?

Hey no problem rightwing scum. We only act boorish and ignorant so that you feel like our equal.

Thank you for voting for Scott Wanker. It will be enjoyable watching him be indicted and hopefully sent to jail. I heard Blago needs a roomie.

I thought the losers were supposed to be angry. Instead, the internet is full of shit like this from those who are supposed to be celebrating post-Tuesday.

We got an email today calling us "entitled leftists" because a post-it ad on the front page of the paper appears over the top of Scott Walker's face on some issues (we're printed by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, which endorsed Walker, and are constantly befuddled by where those post-its wind up). But here I thought that "leftists" were supposed to be socialists. Putting those ads on the front page is pretty obviously a capitalist's move and we're being accused of entitlement. Which is it?

Read the cover story. You see a lot of sadness, dedication, humor, inspiration. No anger.

I've adopted it as my own. I like the plosive-sibilant-plosive bite.

Don't get too bent out of shape about the OP, everybody. It's a lame copy/paste job that's making the rounds—perhaps copied/pasted by the original author, but no less lame for that.

Our latest crop of conservatists really, really like to see themselves post, don't they?

They love to play "entitled victim" too.

I've definitely warmed to leftist. it's not a bit insulting, and it's sister word sinistral has a tasteful charm all its own. Maybe I'll get it tattooed on my (left) wrist.

You must not only be politically challenged, but technologically also.
The admin can just compare ISP numbers.

Funny how pretty much anything and everything not lockstep with the socialist leftist democrats is some sort of plot.

BOO! the cat under your bed..... :twisted:
OK, stoned, angry cat.

I agree, sno. What's wrong with "leftist"?

Oh, and Corn Hole brought up the Social Democrats too. Another fine moniker.

At least they aren't calling us Republicans. Now that would be insulting. :P

Sometimes they are. Leftists appear to be that way all the time. I've met socialists that were happyk, but leftists aren't happy--and definitely don't want to lose their affluence.
I was laughing at the clown internviewed on CNN after the election, sobbing that this was the "end of democracy". :lol:

Did you say angry?
