Who's using mobs and courts to overturn elections?

You're right! The fucking hippies!

campy said...

Yeah, that slogan will win over the moderates fer sure.

SGT Ted said...

translation: "Pay no attention to that election we just lost, even though if we had won we'd be braying about how Walker needs to listen to the Will of the People. The only people whose desires and wishes have to be met and listened to are us and screw the taxpayers. We are sore losers who don't really care much about Democracy. We're more about mob rule quite frankly."

Facist?

traditionalguy said...

Talk about ignorance, seeing fascism in a restoration of representative government where union bosses once attacking everyone for money is deeply and immorally foolish. I just love free speech exposing these brain dead chumps.

John said...

How pathetic.

Ann Althouse said...

Sorry for the misspelling, now corrected.

A "facist" would be like a racist, but about faces, not races.

TMink said...

These folks are walking around with real deficits in understanding the political process and what has just happened. I guess the historical imperative of their ideology was undented by the huge iceberg of recent elections.

That is a problem.

And it makes them completely vulnerable to manipulation. For a time. Once they painfully acknowledge the manipulation they will grow despondent and withdraw from the political process.

Sad really.

The people in the photograph are obviously not facists. They're all looking the other way.

Mogget said...

Once they painfully acknowledge the manipulation

This is quite unlikely to happen unless they move from Madison. For a place that is otherwise wonderfully vibrant and perpetually invigorating, from an ideological perspective Madison is an unrelieved monochrome.

The Pagan Temple said...

Wow. Prosser wins the election by more than seven thousand votes, and here they are, with a sign saying "Power To The People"? But when they thought Kloppenburg won by 240 votes they were saying "The People Have Spoken"? Words can't describe how much I hate these people.

PaulV said...

Liberal fascist mob marching in the streets. Right on.

Meade said...

A "facist" would be like a racist, but about faces, not races.

And a crypto-facetiousist is someone who snickers behind a mask.

How about ending the Democrat Reign of Terror? Government is a large hydra-headed Corporation that claims: eminent domain, allodial title, enforces a feudel system of rents, impoverishes hard working people through confiscatory taxation, imprisons people for posession of natures green weed, funds large standing forces of armed men and kills people 24/7 Worldwide with impunity.

Marshal said...

Power to the people? Isn't that what we just witnessed? We threw out the business as usual bureaucrats and installed someone to implement our preferences.

And it's working.

And the people support it.

By the way, where's garage trumpeting the polls showing 98% of the populace is against Walker? Did the Democratic Party term him? It should be for cause, given his complete inability to convince anyone his opinions are anything other than wishful thinking.

shoutingthomas said...

David Crosby lives in Madison?

Is he inseminating the local lesbians? Via turkey baster, of course.

David said...

I would agree to end the fascist Republican reign of ignorance if they would agree to let us have one first.

edward said...

Marshall beat me to it. The power of the people was exercised on the 5th of April and last November.

The real translation of that sign is "gimme my free lunch, NOW"

Franklin said...

That guy looks like an intelligent winner.

Dark Eden said...

"End the fascist Republican Reign of Ignorance."

Well that convinced me. Give the unions all the money they want fascists!

virgil xenophon said...

That photo looks like those one sees in films about "after the apocalypse" where straggling survivors stand-around cargo cult-like pathetically waiting to be saved. LOL

Sixty Grit said...

That humped over retard is an apt representative of current crop of leftists running loose in this country. Dude, stand up straight, get a haircut, get a job, grow up - the 60s are totally over, all right?

WV: unters - definitely not ubers.

Rick Lee said...

Power to the people who shout "power to the people"

Maguro said...

Some serious wedgie action in the blue pants there, those trousers may have to surgically removed. Ouch.

galdosiana said...

In my office this past week, there was a stack of signs and buttons that said: "Elections matter."

...Apparently, they only matter when Madisonians believe *their* candidate will win.

SMGalbraith said...

Man, Keith Olbermann has really let himself go to hell since being fired.

He still has a way with the words, though.

Big Mike said...

I think -- I hope! -- that what this demonstration is causing is more votes for Republican candidates by moderates and independents.

AJ Lynch said...

A collection of old scuzzy white people.

Clyde said...

"The dark night of fascism is always descending in the United States and yet lands only in Europe." -- Tom Wolfe

On the plus side, at least those liberals managed to spell all of the words on their signs correctly. Kudos for that!

PatCA said...

Somebody go get grampa! He's up at Main Street again and it's time for dinner.

edutcher said...

If they're talking about ending the Reign of Ignorance, they must be Conservatives protesting the teachers' unions.

Bart said...

Power? These folks appear weak, confused, and utterly worn out.

What an anachronism.

Chip Ahoy said...

I'll give you 50-1 odds the person in blue pants doesn't have a full-length mirror.

Carol_Herman said...

Wouldn't it be more effective if Kloppenhoffer, herself, came out, to thank these people for their support and their votes?

Though it doesn't seem like much of a crowd, to me. Heck, Brookfield had 14,000 voters. How can Kloppenhoffen defranchise them with this measily turn out?

William said...

Thanks again for the excellent photos. Here at the "travel agency" we have been able to identify many "vactioners" and send them away to the "resort" based on these photos. The senior travel agent has been very pleased with your work, and there will be soomething extra at the drop site. However, if you could provide more identifying info on that guy in the fedora it would be appreciated. The senior travel agent wants to send him away on an "luxury Hawaian vacation". Again, on behalf of everyone in the fatherland, we thank you for your research and information.

Tea Party at Perrysburg said...

Why do so many of these union protesters have such yooge ass#s.

Synova said...

I'd be embarrassed by the obvious incongruous nature of identifying "intelligent" as the defining element of this disagreement. I suppose the habit of identifying as "we're the smart ones, with the smart opinions" is hard to break.

"I'll give you 50-1 odds the person in blue pants doesn't have a full-length mirror."

The trick to a decent body image is the lack of a full-length mirror.

Carol_Herman said...

If it wasn't for this blog nobody would have known the story. The media were "encamped" on Kloppenhoppen's side. All along.

And, now? The AP is mum about running a wild guess and claiming klodhopper won it by a huge margin of 204 votes. Out of a million and a half, cast.

By the way, in some republican districts they ran out of ballots! So, Xeroxed (photocopies) of ballots were handed out. And, about 100 people, using this substitute, had ballots that weren't even counted!

While the pictures from Madison are interesting, in and of, and by themselves. Not enough people to make it look like Klop had some sort of "landslide."

Similar to Gore in 2000. What is underperforming is the enthusiam Gore expected to get. And, then? In Florida, the enthusiam swung towards Dubya.

While also back in 2000 CBS incorrectly called Florida for Gore, when the polls i the panhandle were still open.

SNAFU? Or done on purpose?

If there's a charade of an investigation, it will hang on the heads of the democraps. Who are managing, all on their own, to piss off more than half of Wisconsin's voters.

By the way, why are out-of-state students allowed to vote?

What's gonna happen, ahead, to "same day registration, with no ID?"

It's true the unions can't accept reality.

While at the same time it's democrats who are shedding their enthusiam for Obama. You can't fool me. The "approval ratings" tell all.

roesch-voltaire said...

Nice to see Meade and Ann in the company of those who have nothing better to do, but I wouldn't make fun of them.

NotYourTypicalNewYorker said...

Prosser open to Waukesha County recount

DO. NOT. DO. IT.

7,000 votes is a win, not a reason for a recount.

Methadras said...

It is unbelievable how leftards like these are allowed to characterize republicans or conservatives as ignorant fascists. Really? Do these people not own mirrors for the love of all that is reasoned and sane?

It is truly capitalist to sell these people the very rope they will hang themselves with.

Sigivald said...

And this shows us that for some people, it's always 1969, and the President is always Richard Nixon or John Kennedy (depending on party).

(And as Eddie suggests, "That word they're using - I don't think it means what they think it means.")
