In an update to my previous article about the arrest of Dave Willoughby, the Marine veteran, for peacefully protesting union thuggery in Wisconsin, it seems the story now is that he “created danger to the public” with the protest sign he had held above his head.
As you can see in this screen clip from the MRC TV video below, his was not the only above-the-head sign at the pro-union event. In fact, you will see a “Recall Walker” sign that is significantly taller than Willoughby’s “Support Scott Walker NOT Union Thugs” sign.
So far, I have only heard of Willoughby being arrested.
If Willoughby’s sign was such a danger, why was the holder of the “Recall Walker” sign not arrested?
Could it be because the police belong to a union, and they want to protect the union gravy train?
I used to serve in law enforcement, and still have many friends in law enforcement. As anyone who knows me understands, I have only the deepest respect and admiration for cops. But the police I know wouldn’t harass or arrest a peaceful protester.
I think the charge should be that Willoughby “created danger for union thuggery” by exposing the hypocrisy of those who would rob other Americans of the right to choose whether to join a union or not, and those who would put the taxpayers on the hook to pay for forced unionism and union fat cats.
This is a war, folks. It is a war for our hard-won freedoms and our way of life. It is not a game. It is not merely a political “contest.” It is not a spectacle for the politicos, the chattering class and the hacks. It is a war, and we’d better take it seriously.
Let us pray that Governor Scott Walker prevails in the recall election tomorrow, for if these union thugs and socialist parasites succeed in their attempt at vengeance because Walker knocked the wheels off their gravy train, it will be open season for the Left on the carcass of America.
