    The Sikh Temple shooting in Wisconsin
What does it say about our society, our culture, and our country that CNN spent an inordinate amount of time yesterday explaining the difference between Sikhs and Muslims? Or that CNN interviewed a Sikh so that he could explain to their audience what his religion was “about.” For one thing, why don’t most people know that they’re different religions? And for another thing, did that suggest, even a little, that a shooting at an Islamic temple would make more sense?
Recently Michelle Bachmann and four other representatives came out with highly racist, sinister, and completely ridiculous allegations against top State Department official Huma Abedin (who is Muslim-American), suggesting that she is part of a Muslim Brotherhood conspiracy to infiltrate the U.S. government. I have to ask if Bachmann’s typically negligent dog-whistling finally crawled inside the sick mind of one of these rightwing “patriots” who support her brand of psuedo-Christian-politicking, and decided to take her phony conspiracy theory to the next level? …

    Rep. Paul Ryan: repeal health care law because those rights “come from nature and God”
The Raw Story reports that “Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) is arguing that President Barack Obama’s health care reform law should be repealed because rights come from “nature and God,” not the government. During an interview on ABC, former Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy’s widow, Victoria Kennedy, told host George Stephanopoulos that the Supreme Court had made the right decision by upholding the Affordable Care Act. Ryan’s response:
“We’re going to repeal the entire law and then we’re going to advance patient-centered reforms that address these kinds of issues.I think this at the end of the day is a big philosophy difference. What Ms. Kennedy and others were saying is that this is a new government-granted right. We disagree with the notion that our rights come from government, that the government can now grant us and define our rights. Those are ours, they come from nature and God, according to the Declaration of Independence — a huge difference in philosophy.”
This man’s a loon in a political party filled with them. Let’s vote them out and take back our government. Enough with this foolishness.

    Scott Walker's Divide-and-Conquer Strategy Is "The New Model for the Country" | Mother Jones →

    sarahlee310:

    Coming soon to your state: The anti-union, education-cutting, free-market-leaning, divide-and-conquer playbook of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

    According to a leading conservative activist, the Walker agenda in Wisconsin is the new conservative game plan for all states in the union. That was the key message delivered at a rally Friday evening in Madison by Tim Phillips, national president of Americans for Prosperity, the conservative nonprofit started with money from the billionaire industrialists Charles and David Koch. “The Wisconsin approach to changing and making state government better is the new model for the country,” he said. “You are the model for the country.”

    I pray Wisconsin shows the nation that this is not the direction we want our nation to go.

    Walker recall election Tuesday:you can help! This is a race that will come down to turnout — The final Public Policy Polling count ahead of tomorrow’s recall election shows a slight Walker lead in a race that’s tightening up in the final hours. […] If the folks who turn out on Tuesday actually matched the 2008 electorate, Barrett would be ahead of Walker by a 50-49 margin. It’s cliche but this is a race that really is going to completely come down to turnout. Needless to say, if you’d like to help out with turning out the vote, you can help out with phone banking here. Today’s the day we need you to help. It’s crunch time, and you can make calls from your own home. It’s easy and simple. This race is winnable, folks. Fire Walker with me. — Balloon Juice

    Scott Walker mistakenly admits that he is a target in the John Doe criminal corruption probe →

    Walker, in a rare moment of candor, stated to reporters that he would not use the criminal defense fund to pay for the legal defenses of his aides, who have been charged with crimes ranging from child enticement, to theft from veterans and the families of fallen soldiers, to misuse of taxpayer resources to illegally campaign for Scott Walker, and would instead use the funds for himself or his campaign. Wisconsin law is very clear: an elected official can only establish a legal defense fund if they, or their agent, are under investigation for, charged with, or convicted of violations of Wisconsin’s campaign finance and election laws. Nothing provides for an elected official creating a legal defense fund for the sole purpose of campaign compliance, assisting the prosecution or aiding an investigation, as Scott Walker claims he is doing. Since he is not paying for the defense of an agent acting on his behalf, it is now clear that Scott Walker is under investigation. – Wisconsin Politics

    • “I have a police department that arrests felons. He has a practice of hiring them.” — Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Tom Barrett (D),quoted by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, bringing up an ongoing secret investigation of Gov. Scott Walker’s (R) aides in last night’s debate. via

    Maddow: Union-busting about making Wisconsin permanently Republican— “Killing the unions is the strategy for turning Wisconsin red, not just for now, but for generations to come in an irreparable way,” she said. “This is about partisan politics. It is about destroying Democrats’ chances of competing with Republicans.” Maddow noted that while Republican candidates are disproportionately funded by corporate and pro-business groups, Democratic candidates are disproportionately funded by public service unions — the very unions that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker targeted in his budget repair bill. “It’s not about some year’s budget, it is not even about jobs,” Maddow continued. “Since he wiped away union rights in Wisconsin, Scott Walker has racked up the single worst jobs records in the entire country.” – Raw Story

    The DNC / @DWStweets responds to complaints about Scott Walker Recall Election June 5 — Following a report that the Democratic Party of Wisconsin is “furious” with the Democratic National Committee for not pouring more money into the Scott Walker recall effort, DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz will visit Wisconsin this month to campaign with Walker’s challenger — but there’s still no indication that the Wisconsinites can expect more help than that. […] “We are confident that they will be here for us,” said Wisconsin Democratic Party spokesman Graeme Zielinski when asked if the visit meant more monetary support from the DNC. — Buzzfeed

    RECALL ELECTION JUNE 5: The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has not invested heavily into the recall elections against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R), according to an anonymous Wisconsin Democratic party official. […] “We are frustrated by the lack of support from the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Governors Association,” the official said. “Scott Walker has the full support and backing of the Republican Party and all its tentacles. We are not getting similar support.” – Raw Story
