Here’s a somewhat shocking video (via the MacIver Institute) of members of the Wisconsin government union picketing an address by Governor Scott Walker to Special Olympians. Yes, Special Olympians.
Walker was addressing a group of Special Olympians, congratulating and commending them for their recent participation in the games. And then the union members arrived, dressed as zombies, and proceeded to stand in front Special Olympians, blocking their view of the governor as he delivered his remarks.
The protestors, some of whom carried signs with rather questionable language considering the gathering, were unapologetic.
People certainly have the right to protest, but one would hope that union protestors would exhibit some commonsense and dignity.
It’s probably not helping your cause—which cause, by the way, is receiving lots of free stuff and entitlements at the taxpayers’ expense—when you ruin the day of a bunch of Special Olympics participants.
On the other hand, thank you, Wisconsin Union Protestors, you certainly made a huge (albeit unintended) impression. Your utter selfishness is now on full display. Kudos.You can follow Christian Tappe on Twitter: @ChristianTappe
