scott walker booed iowa state fair

Scott Walker was crushed and booed by hecklers today as he tried to tout his union-busting record at the Iowa State Fair.

Video:

When Scott Walker talked about his “achievements” in Wisconsin, he was met with jeers and boos. After a man held up a sign that read, “DON’T LET SCOTT WALKER DO TO AMERICA WHAT HE DID TO WISCONSIN, ” Walker tried to play the tough guy and claim that he would not be intimidated, “I am not intimidated by you, sir, or anyone else out there. I will fight for the American people over and over and over and over again. You want someone who’s tested? I’m right here.”

By fighting for the American people, Walker meant fighting so that they don’t have access to healthcare, can’t get a job, and if they have a job, don’t earn a living wage. Walker will also fight to make sure that children are denied a quality education, and college is out of reach for most students.

4. I am relieved to see how poorly this asshat is doing.

He scares the crap out of me and would never want to see him at the top of the GOP ticket. Come to think of it - they all do but this guy.. Warms my heart to see him trailing so badly.

8. Even Trump is saying Walker ruined Wisconsin.

Walker's campaign is suffering from failure to thrive syndrome. The Kochs must be so disappointed with their little Scotty's poll numbers.

9. Of course the Dubuque Teaparty Herald is gushing over him.

 

They also had an article on the wanker that was disgustingly gushing.

I just got back from the fair. Saw Carley and almost heard a Graham speech. Highlight of the trip.

14. Jeez, he's an asshole.

Jeez, he's an asshole.

Just the lowest of the low. I find myself almost wishing I could believe in some sort of afterlife, just to know that he'd eventually get his just desserts.

While Iowa Protester was Attacked, Walker Bragged he wasn't Intimidated!!!
It was a little out of character, but Scott Walker needed a boost in the polls
.

When the news broke about Scott Walker's egomaniacal attacked on a few protesters in a small crowd at the Iowa State Fair, I had a chance to ask my conservative friend in Milwaukee what he thought; do people have a 1st Amendment right to redress their government if they disagree with policy, or are they now seen as disloyal Americans, trying to "intimidate" their political leaders?

Without hesitation he said it was intimidation, just like Walker. Another real constitutional scholar. And since it is intimidation, Walker no longer has a responsibility to listen to those now vilified dissenters. It's a perfect example of rightwing authoritarianism.

In Wisconsin, Walker typically avoids public confrontations with scheduled appearances closed off to all but his corporate supporters and captive employee audiences.

Walker's outburst was calculated to play off his book (boost sales?), and play up his reputation for taking on hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites in the dead of winter who protested his "divide and conquer" agenda.


Published on Aug 17, 2015: At the Iowa State Fair Soapbox, Governor Scott Walker brings the crowd to a thunderous applause when he says he is unintimidated and a proven, tested leader.


The funny irony? Walker bragged about standing up to 100,000 taxpaying American people, because he wants to "fight for the American people." You can't make this stuff up folks. Here's a more complete look at Walker's attack:


"Again, unintimidated. I am not intimidated by you, sir, or anyone else out there. I will fight for the American people over and over and over and over again. You want someone who’s tested? I’m right here. You can see it. This is what happened in Wisconsin. We will not back down. We will do what is necessary to defend the American people going forward. If you give me the chance, I will not be intimidated, just like I wasn't intimidated here or anywhere else."

"Go get 'em, Scott!" a supporter screamed in response.
