Obama is Behind Wisconsin Protests

There really is no other way to look at this. The Organizing For America arm of the Democratic National Committee is the spawn of Obama; it is something he created. He can alter its direction with a phone call. OFA is responsible for the protests taking place in Wisconsin at the state capitol there. The governor of Wisconsin is doing what the people of his state elected him to do - cut the funding of public sector unions and OFA doesn't like it. In another clear example of the left not understanding where money comes from, these unions are demanding what is no longer available - money.

The larger story here is that the president is behind these protests.

The Democratic National Committee's Organizing for America arm -- the remnant of the 2008 Obama campaign -- is playing an active role in organizing protests against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's attempt to strip most public employees of collective bargaining rights.

OfA, as the campaign group is known, has been criticized at times for staying out of local issues like same-sex marraige, but it's riding to the aide of the public sector unions who hoping to persuade some Republican legislators to oppose Walker's plan. And while Obama may have his difference with teachers unions, OfA's engagement with the fight -- and Obama's own clear stance against Walker -- mean that he's remaining loyal to key Democratic Party allies at what is, for them, a very dangerous moment.

OfA Wisconsin's field efforts include filling buses and building turnout for the rallies this week in Madison, organizing 15 rapid response phone banks urging supporters to call their state legislators, and working on planning and producing rallies, a Democratic Party official in Washington said.
If further proof is needed that Obama is in fact supporting these protests, look at his own words via the Washington Post:
"Some of what I've heard coming out of Wisconsin, where you're just making it harder for public employees to collectively bargain generally seems like more of an assault on unions. And I think it's very important for us to understand that public employees, they're our neighbors, they're our friends. These are folks who are teachers and they're firefighters and they're social workers and they're police officers.

"They make a lot of sacrifices and make a big contribution. And I think it's important not to vilify them or to suggest that somehow all these budget problems are due to public employees."
The president's public stance is that unions are being 'assault(ed).' It is quintessential Alinsky: 'Rub raw the sores of discontent.' Instead of chastising a group he created (OFA), he is overtly egging them on by appealing to one of the lowest common denominators of human nature. He is telling them they are victims when in reality, they've been living off the backs of others for decades.

If the president wanted to, he could easily instruct OFA to back off. He's not. In light of his office, he's complicit in his silence. Then again, he's not all that silent; he's encouraging them with his own words.

He also seems content with teachers lying by collectively calling off sick as well as the latter's exploitation of students for their cause.

Exploitation of high school students for a political agenda is simply disgraceful and it demonstrates another Alinsky precept: 'The ends justify the means.'

All patriotic Americans support the pro democracy protests in Wisconsin.

So, if I am to assume your comment is correct, "patriotic Americans support the pro democracy protests....", then having a demonstration to protest the liberal gaging of the public sector is patriotic? Be careful with response, because any way you answer it will expose your irrational logic. Careful libhom, be careful with your response. Think long and hard, but don't hurt yourself.

Ohhh I forgot to mention, all government unions should be against the law. Why? Because their salary and benefits come from tax payers. And when tax payers are not working, they can't pay taxes. And when they can’t pay taxes, guaranteed salaries of these unions can't be paid without borrowing and going in debt. Big government is for the lame and people, like unions, only like it so they can suck the tax payers dry. Case in point, get rid of government run schools. Commercialize them and bring in competition so PARENTS can chose where to send their kids. Lame ass government sucks. Only thing they are good for is the military. Oh, and liberals hate teh military. Imagine that?

L, what happened to you? I thought you were a liberal. Obviously, you are a conservative who was masquerading as a liberal.
