Stooping Down

As we enjoy the hypocrisy of the Left on the Wisconsin War, should we ignore some apparent Right Wing hypocrisy?  Some idiot is claiming he wants to infiltrate the union rallies to make them look bad.

Here is what I am doing in Sacramento, where they are holding a 5:30 PM event this coming Tuesday:  (1) I signed up as an organizer (2) with any luck they will contact me and I will have an “in” (3) in or not I will be there and am asking as many other people as can get there to come with, all of us in SEIU shirts (those who don’t have them we can possibly buy some from vendors likely to be there) (4) we are going to target the many TV cameras and reporters looking for comments from the members there (5) we will approach the cameras to make good pictures… signs under our shirts that say things like “screw the taxpayer!” and “you OWE me!” to be pulled out for the camera (timing is important because the signs will be taken away from us) (6) we will echo those slogans in angry sounding tones to the cameras and the reporters.  (7) if I do get the ‘in’ I am going to do my darnedest to get podium access and take the mic to do that rant from there…with any luck and if I can manage the moments to build up to it, I can probably get a cheer out of the crowd for something extreme.

I suspect this is a mountain being made out of a molehill.  First, most Tea Partiers do not have union bosses to organize sick outs or doctors to write phoney sick notes for them. The Tea Partiers barely have time to protest, least of all secretly infiltrate union rallies.

Second, would anyone notice?  The unions have already been caught red-handed paying non-union people minimum wage to protest for them. Who would notice a few more strangers in that mix?

Third, and most importantly, the union rally does not need any help looking idiotic.  From Illinois to California, the public employee unions have made their contempt for the taxpayer very clear.  In Wisconsin, they’ve been comparing Governor Walker to Mubarak and Hitler (all to a thundering silence from those who dug through hundreds of photos to find a handful of idiot Tea Partiers --- I’m looking at you, LGF).  All the infiltrating Tea Partiers in the world could not make them look worse.

In the end, this an effort to diffuse the extreme rhetoric and idiocy these protesters are engaged in.  It’s trying to shift the blame to some mythical Right Wing infiltration.

Still, I hope that no one actually does this.  I’ve said this a million times: I expect better of the Right Wing than the Left Wing.  Someone is supposed to be the adult around here.  Let the protesters foam at the mouth all they want.  If you want to get involved, support the governor and legislature or counter-protests.  But don’t stoop to the Left’s tactics.
