True colors of the left?

So the endgame move was employed by Republicans in the Wisconsin State Senate after the stalemate on the budget repair bill reached three weeks.  Seems this move infuriated the liberal left and the unions, despite the fact that collective bargaining is a privilege not a right.  One has to wonder if the true colors of the left are starting to show in the face of defeat.

First an UNEDITED email obtained by WTMJ in Milwaukee that is being investigated by the Wisconsin Justice Department:

Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your familes will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks. Please explain to them that this is because if we get rid of you and your families then it will save the rights of 300,000 people and also be able to close the deficit that you have created. I hope you have a good time in hell. Read below for more information on possible scenarios in which you will die.

WE want to make this perfectly clear. Because of your actions today and in the past couple of weeks I and the group of people that are working with me
have decided that we’ve had enough. We feel that you and the people that support the dictator have to die. We have tried many other ways of dealing
with your corruption but you have taken things too far and we will not stand for it any longer. So, this is how it’s going to happen: I as well as many others know where you and your family live, it’s a matter of public records.
We have all planned to assult you by arriving at your house and putting a nice little bullet in your head. However, we decided that we wouldn’t leave it there. We also have decided that this may not be enough to send the message to you since you are so “high” on Koch and have decided that you are now going to single handedly make this a dictatorship instead of a
demorcratic process. So we have also built several bombs that we have placed in various locations around the areas in which we know that you frequent.
This includes, your house, your car, the state capitol, and well I won’t tell you all of them because that’s just no fun. Since we know that you are not smart enough to figure out why this is happening to you we have decided to make it perfectly clear to you. If you and your goonies feel that it’s necessary to strip the rights of 300,000 people and ruin their lives, making
them unable to feed, clothe, and provide the necessities to their families and themselves then We Will “get rid of” (in which I mean kill) you. Please
understand that this does not include the heroic Rep. Senator that risked everything to go aganist what you and your goonies wanted him to do. We feel
that it’s worth our lives to do this, because we would be saving the lives of 300,000 people. Please make your peace with God as soon as possible and say goodbye to your loved ones we will not wait any longer. YOU WILL DIE!!!!

Or how about these tweets captured by Pundit Press, calling for Scott Walker‘s death.

Or how about the attempts to break car windows of Republican State Senators as they left the State Capitol last night.

Senate Republicans were harried by swarming crowds. “We tried to get out of the building after the vote, because they were rushing the chamber, and we were escorted by security through a tunnel system to another building. But, after being tipped off by a Democrat, they mobbed the exit at that building, and were literally trying to break the windows of the cars we were in as we were driving away,” Republican senator Randy Hopper tells NRO. Such tactics, he sighs, were hardly unexpected. “I got a phone call yesterday saying that we should be executed. I’ve had messages saying that they want to beat me with a billy club.”

Lots of hate coming from the tolerant, peaceful left.  Apparently nothing is off the table when it comes to wanting to ignore the results of the 2010 elections.  Very sad to see intimidation tactics being used in an attempt to prevent lawmakers from doing their elected jobs.


State Senator Holperin on way home?

WisPolitics is reporting that in light of the endgame move played by Republican State Senators on the collective bargaining aspect of Governor Walker’s budget repair bill 12th Senate District Senator Jim Holperin is on his way home from Illinois.

State Sen. Jim Holperin was driving back to his home in Conover this morning and said he expected other Dems to follow suit after the Assembly votes later today.

Holperin said most of the Dem caucus met last night and agreed to return once the Assembly finished its work on the legislation to strip away most collective bargaining rights for public employees. He said he may have left a little earlier than the others, but he believed the Assembly action was a foregone conclusion and there would be no Senate floor session today or tomorrow. He said he would return to the Capitol if that changed.

Holperin headed back three weeks to the day after the Dems went into their self-imposed exile.

A self-imposed exile that did nothing but hold democracy hostage and resulted in 42% of Wisconsinites not having representation in the State Senate for three weeks. Here’s a novel idea for the minority, next time you don’t like a bill do your elected job which is to debate and vote on ALL legislation brought to the floor.

Welcome back Jim.  Perhaps you would like to explain to your constituents why your actions don’t warrant being recalled.
