Rosie O'Donnell: Wisconsin Union Protesters Just Like Mideast Freedom Fighters
Lefties Push Ridiculous Egypt - Wisconsin Comparison
Is anything more absurd than equating well-compensated union thugs in Wisconsin with impoverished Arabs and others fighting tyrants in the Middle East? No matter how ridiculous the Egypt - Wisconsin comparison might sound, our "progressive" friends are working non-stop to promote it nationwide.
True to form, libtalkers are happy to spread the propaganda. There are too many examples to list, but one of the most obnoxious comes from Rosie O'Donnell, who accuses Republicans of using "talking points" while herself seeming to do just that.
From Tuesday's Rosie Radio, here are three sound bites:
ROSIE O'DONNELL (29:41): [The Wisconsin budget crisis] is the most important issue our nation is facing right now, and has for the last fifty, sixty years [...]
There's apparently over 100,000 people in the freezing cold in Wisconsin standing there, and they have been for the last eleven days. It took seventeen days to get the government in Egypt to stop abusing their citizens after thirty years of rule.
O'DONNELL (47:48): I believe the people of Wisconsin were inspired by watching the people of Egypt ... stand up to tyranny and dictatorship, a thirty-year dictatorship taken down in seventeen days of peaceful protest. The people in Wisconsin deserve our support ... They are us.
O'DONNELL (49:50): Today, with all of our social media, people like Governor Walker can't get away with the lies and the deception that have been the course [sic], especially during the Bush administration.
O'DONNELL (58:40): [Walker is] trying to ruin the two-party system in the United States, and, frankly, if the Democrats don't get their s**t together, they're really gonna be the root of their own demise, because the Republicans are organized and they've got talking points and they've got slogans.
Really, Rosie? Preserving public employee bloat in Wisconsin is more important than the Civil Rights movement or any other domestic social matter since 1951? Minus one for that.
And where is the oppressive "abuse" in Madison? Isn't that an insult to those who've been injured or killed in the battle against corrupt regimes?
On the plus side, extra points for managing to squeeze irrelevant Bush-bashing into the argument.
