Obama silent on Wisconsin violent discourse – oh yeah, its unions, its ok

If President Obama were serious about preventing violence, he would by now have taken his civility road show to Madison, Wis., where union goons have been sending lawmakers Corleone-esque horse’s heads through the mail, the phone lines and cyberspace.

Over a dozen Wisconsin state senators have received death threats after voting to remove public union collective bargaining powers. Funny we haven’t heard President Obama call for civility lately.

A note shoved under Grothman’s door said, “The only good Republican is a dead Republican.” He has stories of getting obscene phone calls in the middle of the night.

Two Republicans, state Sen. Randy Hopper and state Rep. Jeremy Thiesfeldt, feel so threatened that they backed out of marching in Saturday’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the city of Fond du Lac.

Imagine the media storm that we would be enduring right now if these threats were directed at liberal Democrats and the issue was, say, abortion.

Since these union goon tactics are the logical consequence of the Democratic National Committee’s organization of the original Wisconsin protests against Walker last month, perhaps the president and his political allies have a civility double standard.
