Tomorrow the Wisconsin Supreme Court will hear oral argument in a case of nationwide significance, which will likely end up as a landmark precedent in the field of academic freedom, John McAdams v. Marquette University (court docket sheet here).

The principal question in the case is whether Marquette University‘s firing of Dr. McAdams, a tenured professor, for publishing a politely worded blog post mildly critical of a graduate student instructor (naming her and linking to her own blog), violated First Amendment principles (which were voluntarily adopted by Marquette, a private university, in its contracts with its tenured professors).

The trial court threw out the lawsuit filed by Dr. McAdams (decision here), but the Supreme Court (on which 5 of the 7 justices now serving are generally regarded as “conservative”) granted direct review (so that the case bypassed the intermediate appellate court) — suggesting the Court is inclined to rule in favor of Dr. McAdams.

The campaign for a vacant seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court has taken on national significance, with prominent Democrats such as “Creepy” Joe Biden, “Crazy” Bernie Sanders, “Derogatory” Cory Booker, and Eric (“The Duck”) Holder — calm on the surface, but with “little duck feet” that “are just moving as fast as they can underneath,” he’s bragged (seriously, you can watch it here) — intervening in the race in recent weeks.

A key question at this juncture is whether Wisconsin’s heavily liberal mainstream media outlets will inform voters of a recent development, adverse to the liberal candidate, Judge Rebecca Dallet, before voters go to the polls tomorrow. Continue Reading »

WaPoKidsChorus2

The once-great Washington Post, long plagued with credibility problems conceded by its own ombudsmen in 2011, was caught last year publishing fake news, and more recently was caught actually creating fake news.

Now WaPo has fallen even further. It is being reviled for what some are suggesting is “child abuse,” with its June 29 release of this video of children — members of the “Washington Post Kids Chorus” — singing lines it scripted for them, as part of its partisan political attack on President Trump.

Imagine takedown

Shiny Happy takedown

Yesterday afternoon the appalling Evergreen State College published a short video on its recent graduation. It’s a communist-propaganda-style video, produced by employees on the government payroll, by which Evergreen — led by the detestable George Bridges and the even more detestable Naima Lowe — seeks to project an image of normalcy and deflect attention from the horrible problems at this largely taxpayer-funded institution. Continue Reading »

So the New York Times finally sent a reporter to Evergreen State College, more than three weeks after the unrest began on May 23, when dozens of leftist students were caught on video surrounding and shouting down a professor, Bret Weinstein, for having objected to an official policy of racial segregation on campus (a request that all whites leave for the day).

Only in Bizarro World would college students brand a professor as “racist” for speaking out against racial segregation, and advocating color-blind policies.

Only in Bizarro World would a supposedly “elite” newspaper like the New York Times fail to document — or even mention — evidence that a prime mover behind the crisis at Evergreen is a foul-mouthed, anti-American, black and queer professor, Naima Lowe. Continue Reading »

Here are highlights of Mike Cernovich‘s 30-minute Periscope video this afternoon which, as Stephen Molyneaux has noted, contains “[a]n incredibly important message” for President Trump.

Update (June 12): Welcome, Breitbart News (Tom Ciccotta) readers! (In his post Tom carefully notes, on a point this blogger simply assumed without actual evidence: “It is unclear if the individual arrested is an Evergreen student.”

Update 2 (June 13): Thanks to Michelle Malkin and Jim Hoft (Gateway Pundit) for retweeting this video. Huge boost!

Update 3 (June 14): Welcome, Instapundit (Glenn Reynolds) readers! Glenn (“The Blogfather“) is the guy who put this blog on the map, with numerous links during its launch in February, 2011. This blog post was read today by more 5,000 of Glenn’s readers!

Why does it fall to an obscure Wisconsin blogger to break important news of developments in a story of national importance (previously covered by the New York TimesWashington PostWeekly Standard, and National Review), which continues to unfold in Olympia, Washington?Evergreen4

Two days ago, students at Evergreen State College repeatedly F-bombed Christian fundamentalists who were peaceably and legally assembled on the main campus plaza (public property) to urge anyone who cared to listen to accept Jesus Christ as their savior. Continue Reading »

This morning an especially stupid and intellectually odious liberal blogger named Matthew Yglesias — a member of the overlord “ruling class” simultaneously so narcissistic that he fancies himself as writing not for us, but for future historians, but so obtuse that he compares people who disagree with him to Hitler — published this tweet mocking average Americans for their support of President Trump:

May 29 Matthew Yglesias tweet

Which led Chris Arnade (FB, Twitter, Medium, Flickr, Tumblr), who is far more knowledgeable than Yglesias about the reality of the lives of average Americans (though he holds a Ph.D and has enjoyed far more financial success than Yglesias, he’s still the one you’d rather have a beer with), to write a dozen tweets.

Arnade self portrait

Arnade’s tweet storm is set forth below for easy reading. These tweets, and Arnade’s more detailed essays and photographs documenting everyday life in America, are much more likely to be of interest to future historians than anything Yglesias ever has written. or ever will write.

McAdams011-400x300

Professor John McAdams

John McAdams, the esteemed political science professor at once-esteemed Marquette University, had a setback in court yesterday in the lawsuit he brought against Marquette for stripping him of his tenure, suspending him, and ordering him to write an apology, for writing a blog post in which he criticized an instructor in another department for her bullying of a student in his department.

Yesterday a state-court trial judge dismissed the lawsuit. The lead attorney for Professor McAdams is Rick Esenberg of the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL). A radio interview he granted yesterday is embedded below. Continue Reading »

Update 1 (3 p.m.): This blog post, and Mark Belling’s interview of WI Attorney General Brad Schimel, have gone viral thanks to tweets by James O’Keefe:

Update 2 (3:15 p.m.): Patrick Marley of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has published a followup article referencing the Belling-Schimel interview (and this blog post): “Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel contradicts office, says voter fraud probe is open.” Anyone following this story should read the whole thing. [further, 4 p.m., update — link to article has been tweeted by O’Keefe and Project Veritas.]

Update 3 (4 p.m.): Patrick Marley now has another amazing scoop: just hours before Wisconsin AG Brad Schimel told Mark Belling that the investigation into vote fraud was OPEN, Schimel told the Wisconsin Radio Network that the investigation was CLOSED!:

In breaking this story on Twitter, Marley linked to audio of the interview (article and audio are here) and posted this transcript of Schimel’s remarks.

In a recent tweet, O’Keefe notes the conflicting stories over whether or not the investigation is over, and asks: “Which is true?” Good question.

Update 4 (4:45 p.m.)Patrick Marley has now updated his followup article (originally posted at 2:55 p.m. today). He now notes in the first paragraph that Schimel’s comments on Belling’s show contradicted “comments he made hours earlier that the probe had been closed.” Paragraphs 10-13 compare Schimel’s statement that Project Veritas was spreading “fake news” (an accusation to which O’Keefe did not react kindly) by complaining that the investigation was closed, with Schimel’s statement hours earlier that the investigation was closed:

“I appreciate the work that groups like Project Veritas do to expose corruption and criminal conspiracies, but the war of words that has sparked up in the last 24 hours is incited by fake news, Mark,” Schimel said.

But hours earlier, Schimel described the investigation as closed in his interview with the Wisconsin Radio Network.

“We didn’t seek to shame anyone but when we do an investigation, that is after we close it, it is a public record and therefore when members of the media wanted to see the results of the investigation they were able to get their hands on that,” he said.

“We did take it seriously and looked at this to see whether there was something we could pursue and just concluded that there’s not anything that provided itself as a viable investigatory lead.”

Update 5 (7:30 p.m.):

Prof. Laura Kipnis

Did the campus police chief at Northwestern University issue a campus-wide security alert, warning women of a risk of being sexually abused at NU fraternities — and adding that “we will not stand for this misogynistic, predatory atmosphere” — based on anonymous reports of alleged abuse, without even knowing the names of those allegedly abused? [Update: Or did the police chief say that? See comment of eagle-eyed Greg Piper.]

That’s the question posed by a professor at Northwestern University, Laura Kipnis –perhaps the only sane person on that pathologically liberal campus (whose latest book, Unwanted Advances: Sexual Paranoia Comes to Campus, will be released on April 4; preorder here!) — in a letter posted on the school’s student-run newspaper, the Daily Northwestern.

Update (Feb. 1): The ringleader of the Portland anarchists, Micah Rhodes (FB; Twitter) turns out to be an alleged child rapist (h/t Robert Stacy McCain). Rhodes appears several times in this video, starting at 0:56, 1:27, and 2:10. From his FB account, it appears he is (or at least was) a student at Portland State University. He indicates he prefers being called “Jullian” or “Jules,” so let’s call this “Rhodes scholar” something else! More on the sex-abuse charges leveled against Rhodes here and here.

Update 2 (Feb. 7): A grand jury has indicted Rhodes on five counts of sex abuse, according to this report by a local TV station. Fun fact: apparently Rhodes likes boys and girls.

Today news broke that the University of Wisconsin — Madison admitted a student: 1) who served nearly five years in prison for burning black churches; and 2) who is currently seeking to form an alt-Right student group devoted to protecting the rights of white students.

(2) the Attorney General will refuse to charge Hillary, triggering a massive revolt by officials at the FBI, and in the military and intelligence communities, and a scandal on par with the Watergate coverup. Continue Reading »

Glenn Reynolds -- Blogfather cropped

Prof. Glenn Reynolds, aka “Instapundit”

Rush Limbaugh gave a shout-out to Glenn Reynolds yesterday, praising his most recent USA Today column, which asks whether college students are too spoiled and immature to vote, so that perhaps we should raise the voting age to 25. here’s a clip (transcript below):

Transcript (copied from Rush’s site):

RUSH: Glenn Reynolds is a law professor at the University of Tennessee. He writes a column at USA Today, and he’s got a piece today which basically says — based on what we’re learning here — that if these college students are too spoiled to even tolerate debate, why in the world do we let them vote? How in the world can people who are afraid to hear anything they disagree with? I mean, literally afraid! How can we let ’em vote? How can students too spoiled, too childlike, too narcissistic, too unwilling to tolerate opposing points of view…?

How can we let them vote? How can they even assess opposing political arguments? How can they determine what they agree or disagree with? They can’t. So raise the voting age to 25. He said, “This isn’t the behavior of people who are capable of weighing opposing ideas, or of changing their minds when they are confronted with evidence that suggests that they are wrong. It’s the behavior of spoiled children — a characterization that . . . underscores . . . they are too young to be responsible for their actions. And spoiled children shouldn’t vote.”

That’s an interesting proposition. It’d never happen. But I like the point that it makes.

Charlie Sykes (FB, Twitter), one of Wisconsin’s most influential conservative journalists (founder of Right Wisconsin) featured a segment on Wisconsin state legislator Rep. Christine Sinicki (D — Milwaukee) in his Oct. 21 talk-radio show (on Milwaukee’s WTMJ).

Charlie’s analysis of Rep. Sinicki’s performance a day earlier on the floor of the Assembly, during debate over revisions to the “John Doe” criminal investigative procedures, provides a bracing reminder of just how low the standards are for election to office in liberal-dominated Milwaukee. (Matt Kittle apparently was the first journalist to mention Sinicki’s performance, in this Oct. 20 post summarizing the “John Doe” debate). Continue Reading »

Ryan’s service to our country, and to his brothers in arms, is not yet done. Ryan has long been involved in helping veterans, and to that end he is currently pursuing a master’s degree in social work at George Williams College in Williams Bay, WI (an affiliate of Aurora University in Aurora, IL).

On Tuesday, October 6, Ryan publicly called out (in the school lunchroom) a fellow student who had falsely claimed (in elaborate detail) to having been a Marine infantry officer but who, when confronted by Ryan, confessed he’d made up the whole story.

The next day, the school initiated a disciplinary process — not against the student who’d falsely claimed to be a veteran, but against Ryan. Continue Reading »

Welcome, Cultural Ambassadors of Clemson University readers!

Welcome, Jacob Covella readers!

Update (10/18): On Oct. 15, Clemson’s student-run newspaper, The Tiger News, published “Fiesta Fiasco,” an article by Matthew Stapleton (a sophomore majoring in English), identifying Mitzi Gamez as the author of a tweet attacking Clemson’s “Maximum Mexican” food event as mocking Mexican culture — four days after Badger Pundit outed Ms. Gamez as the author (in this post).

Stapleton

Matthew Stapleton

Mr. Stapleton perhaps deserves an award for “Least Astute Journalist” in America, because his article totally missed the real story here — the evidence discussed in this post that: (1) the outrage by Ms. Gamez was totally fake (as on two prior occasions she has supported the use of sombreros in Mexican-themed events); and (2) the outrage was totally hypocritical, as Ms. Gamez herself has routinely mocked people based on their race, gender, and sexual orientation, on multiple occasions.The simplest research by Mr. Stapleton would have turned up this evidence, given that the below blog post turns up in the top 10 results of a Google search for “Mitzi Gamez“!

Update 2 (10/22, 10 p.m.): This post, and the embedded video, finally went viral in the past day (video views exploded tenfold, from less to 300 to now over 3,400), following Katherine Timpf’s National Review post and Total Frat Move‘s post. Shortly after this story’s focus on Mitzi Gamez went viral nationally, an organization at Clemson — Cultural Ambassadors of Clemson University — yesterday announced (linking to the video) that “because of the reactions people had” to Maximum Mexican Night ” across the country,” the organization “is going to host an impromptu panel/dialogue called Fiesta Fiasco Panel,” apparently in the next two weeks.

EXCLUSIVE — Please credit Badger Pundit

On the morning of October 9, Peter Hasson of Campus Reform broke the story of a student at Clemson University who had successfully bullied Clemson into apologizing for serving Mexican food (with servers wearing sombreros) by tweeting: “Our culture isn’t a costume and we will not be mocked!”

(This is apparently part of the “We’re a culture not a costume” campaign by radical activists who ostensibly believe that those “who choose culturally stereotypical costumes are unknowingly mocking other cultures.”)

Wisconsin — La Crosse who sent the infamous “orgasm e-mail” to all the dorm residents under his charge, wrote in a blog post that he likes dating undergraduate women. Continue Reading »

On September 1, 2015, the godfather of Wisconsin conservative talk radio, Mark Belling of Milwaukee’s News/Talk 1130 WISN, broke a fascinating story, based on a tip from a listener, about a weather-emergency PSA currently running in local movie theaters containing a brief, but unmistakable, reference to Satan.

The 30-second PSA, which depicts a man receiving a tornado alert on his smartphone, shows this image briefly flashing on the man’s smartphone:

One evening in March 2011, Wisconsin state representative Corey Mason (D – Racine) gained national fame (via Breitbart.com) as “Wisconsin’s Benedict Arnold,” for his role in opening the locked doors of the state Capitol Building, allowing thousands of protesters angry about Gov. Scott Walker’s budget reforms to illegally occupy it.

Never again — one would think — would a Wisconsin public official dare risk such opprobrium by lawlessly letting an angry mob into a locked government building. But one would think wrong. History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce, progressive hero Karl Marx once observed. Elements of both tragedy and farce mark this newest betrayal of public trust in Wisconsin.  Continue Reading »

Today the New York Times published an editorial attacking Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker for what he candidly admitted was a drafting error (in his budget proposal) regarding the mission statement for the University of Wisconsin.

The editorial board ought to go a bit easier on the Governor, because it should recognize that even intelligent, reasonably careful people can occasionally commit drafting errors. Witness, for example, the New York Times editorial attacking the Governor, which in its original form repeatedly referred to Scott Walker as “Mr. Scott” (screenshot preserved by @LoganDobson):


Mr Scott

Of course, the New York Times quickly updated its website with a correction noting the error, right?

Wrong. Being a liberal journalist means never having to say you’re sorry — indeed, never having to even acknowledge you’ve made an error.

Unlike Governor Walker, who candidly acknowledged a drafting error made in the preparation of his budget proposal, the New York Times simply corrected its error and pretended it never happened, consigning it to the memory hole.

Fortunately this did not escape the notice of prominent Wisconsin pollster and Marquette University Law School professor Charles Franklin, who tweeted this before-and-after screencap:

MR SCOTT CORRECTED

Hopefully the New York Times will some day stop memory-holing embarrassing errors, and match Governor Walker’s candor in acknowledging errors.

UPDATE (10:55 p.m.):  Comment on Gov. Scott Walker’s “Eureka! moment.”

UPDATE 2 (Feb. 7, 12:30 p.m.): Here is a scan of the hard copy of the finished editorial, published this a.m. (no mention in the hard copy, or online, of the “Mr. Scott” error in the editorial as initially published online):

At 3 p.m. on Sept. 5, Wisconsin conservative talk-radio pioneer Mark Belling (who regularly guest hosts for Rush Limbaugh), of Milwaukee’s Talk/Radio 1030 WISN, was the first to break the news of something apparently never known to have previously occurred in the annals of street racing.

A group of street racers was bodacious enough to privately commandeer an urban interstate highway (by blocking off entrance traffic) to stage a 150-mph drag race — and then they posted the evidence (an elaborately produced video) on YouTube! Continue Reading »

Blake Peuse, harmless

Melissa_Horn_2010_2

Melissa Horn, guiltless

Superintendent Blake Peuse and Principal Melissa Horn and other Wisconsin school bureaucrats have been bullying an 11-year-old-boy, Matthew, and his parents, by criticizing him for having a tiny picture of a gun on an American flag as his avatar while using his computer at home; by declining to return messages left by his parents, who were worried that Matthew would be expelled from his virtual school due to his use of the avatar; and by announcing they plan to create a new policy specifically designed to ban Matthew (and others) from using an avatar reflecting a belief in the constitutional right to bear arms.

Until recently, Peuse and Horn declined all public comment on the matter. They even refused to return calls from prominent media outlets (in particular, calls from Zach Noble at The Blaze). But facing what they apparently perceive as a barrage of media abuse, somehow they found time to break away from their recreational pursuits and address the matter publicly. Continue Reading »

The 16-minute video already has 4,500+ views in just two days (as of Sept. 4, 2 p.m.); this very short version should be even more effective in acquainting folks to the gist of the story.

UPDATE 12: It appears the school bureaucrats behind this fiasco are now pursuing a blame-the-victim strategy. Early in the morning on Sept. 4, Vicki McKenna posted on her Facebook page (here) and on her Twitter account (here) an image of a letter sent by the principal and superintendent to all parents of Matthew’s virtual school addressing (rather obliquely) the current controversy. In addition to stating that no one had actually been suspended or threatened with suspension (which Matthew’s parents already knew, and Vicki had reported (here), based on the discussion between Matthew’s mom and the superintendent), the letter appears to place blame on Matthew for supposedly not making “good choices” (para. 2). It also appears to place blame on Matthew’s parents for supposedly not having reached out to school personnel “for clarification” prior to contacting the media (para. 3). In fact, as Vicki discussed on her Aug. 29 afternoon show (30 seconds starting here, and 15 seconds starting here), the parents went to the media only after their efforts to seek clarification from the school went with no response! This blame-the-victims letter, and Vicki’s comments on it on her show(s), will likely be featured in a separate post. [Update: that post is here.]

Here’s a video clip of Rush Limbaugh (running 6:42) from his August 22 show, in which he summarizes how the new media prevented CNN and other mass-media outlets from perpetuating the myth of Michael Brown being a “Gentle Giant” who, while walking in the street, was supposedly shot in the back for no good reason by a racist white cop.

This post was inspired by yesterday’s post by Tony Lee (@TheTonyLee) on Breitbart.com. Above image from Drudge Report, Aug. 15, 9:15 a.m.

In his August 19 program, Wisconsin conservative talk-radio pioneer Mark Belling (who regularly guest hosts for Rush Limbaugh) of Milwaukee’s Talk/Radio 1030 WISN, condemned as “morally indefensible” the “lynch-mob attitude” of many in the mass media, and many others, toward Darren Wilson, the white Ferguson, Missouri, police officer who on August 9 killed a black teenager, Michael Brown.

A six-minute clip of Belling’s remarks (culled, in chronological order, from about 30 minutes of discussion between 3:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.) appears below. A twelve-minute extended version, providing more context (which is highly recommended for those closely following events in Ferguson), is available here. (Note: Belling had nothing to do with the images and video added to the clips to illustrate Belling’s discussion.)

An earlier post on this blog addressed the liberal print media’s egregious reporting on the recently unveiled, but stale, partisan allegations against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker — which have already been found meritless by the state and federal courts — to the effect that Gov. Walker is some sort of criminal mastermind.

But one must turn to the broadcast media — specifically, MSNBC — to fully appreciate the vast distance between reality and imagination in the liberal media’s coverage of this non-story, which must be attributed to bad faith, or incompetence, or maybe a bit of both. Continue Reading »

Gov. Scott Walker, criminal mastermind?

Shortly before attending a dairy promotion fundraiser to serve breakfast, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker flagged today on his Twitter feed “a must-read editorial” in the Wall Street Journal.

It truly is a must-read item — not just for those interested in Gov. Walker, but for those concerned about the depths to which the liberal media elite are willing to sink to unfairly target conservatives who threaten to disrupt their big-government agenda. Continue Reading »

Yesterday liberal journalists flooded the zone with allegations, contained in old but recently unveiled court filings, that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is some sort of criminal mastermind.

Wisconsin’s Walker implicated in ‘criminal scheme,'” blarred MSNBC –“the sort of news that puts his career in jeopardy.” “Prosecutors: Gov. Walker part of criminal scheme,” reported the Washington Post, citing “previously secret court documents released Thursday.” The Huffington Post emphasized allegations that “Walker was at the center of a nationwide ‘criminal scheme’ to illegally coordinate with outside conservative groups.” Similarly, NBC focused on allegations that Walker “was part of a ‘wide-ranging scheme’ that illegally coordinated fundraising . . . .”

Labrador1

On June 13, Rep. Raúl R. Labrador (R-Idaho) announced his long-shot candidacy to serve as House Majority Leader. Backed by a “rebel alliance,” he is challenging establishment candidate Kevin McCarthy (R-Cal.), the current Majority Whip. The vote will be held on June 19.

Rep. Labrador has been interviewed by “media heavy hitters” on radio and TV (as noted on Labrador’s Twitter feed). In addition to their importance to the current House leadership race, the interviews help illuminate the current state of tension between the newer, more conservative Republican representatives and the generally less conservative entrenched Republican leadership.

For the convenience of readers, the principal interviews are embedded below. Continue Reading »

During his June 9 radio program, Rush Limbaugh talked at length about the rapidly approaching 2016 presidential race, and the need for Republicans to unite around a conservative of real substance, which Rush sees as the key to defeating the powerful spin machine operated by the Democrats and their multitudinous media allies.

As Rush explained, it was Ronald Reagan’s focus on real substance that enabled him to defeat similar forces, and win and govern so successfully, during the 1980s.

Rush has frequently commented favorably on Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin. Now, he has explicitly singled out Walker as Reagan’s true heir:  a conservative leader who, by focusing on substance and reality (not spin and buzz), and by pursuing bold reforms to achieve actual results benefiting the average citizen, has beaten back every attempt by liberals to destroy him — supplying the blueprint for success for the Republican Party.

A clip with the key highlights is embedded below. (The uncut video is posted here.) A transcript (mostly lifted from Rush’s website, here and here) follows the video.

H/t to Ann Althouse (via Instapundit), for calling attention to Rush’s latest praise of Governor Walker.

 TRANSCRIPT

RUSH:  I don’t think that the public is being given good choices. The Democrats are gonna nominate whoever they’re gonna nominate.  And they’re gonna be hopelessly leftist. They’re gonna be right out of the Saul Alinsky playbook.  * * *

And if the Republican Party establishment has no interest in finding or nurturing another conservative leader — which is the only way they’re going to really win and have a mandate and revive the country — if they’re not going to do that, then we’re going to continue to have talks and discussions like this for the rest of our lives!  And the subhead of a conversation that we’re having now could be called:  “What If?” And the Republicans are going to continue to be the “What If?” party if they continue to try to destroy every conservative that has a chance of winning in the primaries, which is what they’re setting up to do again!

Vicki McKenna

Madison-based conservative talk-radio host Vicki McKenna, who broke the Debbie Hosking story on January 24, during her January 28 show addressed the broader lesson of the story regarding the tactics conservatives should use to redress the malignant leftism which is entrenched in much of the public educational system.

Her bottom line? Because more gentle measures have failed to stem continuing abuses, it’s time to “name names”: parents and students should work to publicly identify the worst offenders, by notifying conservative news outlets which can help expose the misconduct, and thus simultaneously build pressure for reforms and help deter future abuses.

That’s the new take on the Debbie Hosking story emphasized by a leading Wisconsin conservative talk-radio host, Charlie Sykes, during his January 27 & 28 programs on Milwaukee’s WTMJ.

Hatred of Gov. Scott Walker runs deep among Wisconsin “progressives,” particularly those in public education who are upset over his initiatives cutting their union perks and increasing the amount of taxpayer dollars spent to actually benefit students.

Still, one would hope that even progressives afflicted by “Walker Derangement Syndrome” — who, for example, argue that Walker is “worse than Jeffrey Dalmer!” — would honor the rule that children in a politician’s family are off limits, no matter how hated the politician.

But one would be wrong, at least regarding Wisconsin’s most attention-seeking, but least intellectually able, progressives — to coin a phrase, “Special Needs” Progressives.

Update 1:  As of Aug. 28, 11:30 a.m. (Eastern time), 95% of those surveyed say Jim Letten is a more insane hobbit hater than Gollum.

* * * * * 

All good people love hobbits.  As W. H. Auden observed in 1954, they are heroes who saved the day for the Dwarves in The Hobbit, and who fought to prevent evil from dominating the world in the Lord of the Rings.

They are also real-world heroes who, in 2013, are working to speak truth to power through citizen journalism which probes corruption and criminality in politics ignored by the mainstream media.  James O’Keefe (author of a New York Times bestselling book, Breakthrough) and his fellow citizen journalists with Project Veritas are likewise beloved by all good people, and for that reason are sometimes likened to hobbits.

Who hates hobbits?  Almost no one.  Only those who are evil and insane could possibly hate hobbits.  In fact, only two characters have ever been caught on film engaging in hate speech against hobbits. Both are clearly deranged, making it difficult to resolve who is the most insane hobbit hater.  Please help resolve this matter by watching these short videos of the two hobbit haters, and voting below.

Even more interesting than the attack by Ms. Alcid and her friends on McCain is the moniker they collectively employ.  Given their feminist orientation and interest in abortion, they proudly call themselves “#AbortionBitches.”
