Presidential hopeful Governor Scott Walker spoke at CPAC the other day and what he had to say embodies everything wrong with the Republican Party and their anti-worker agenda. It was shocking.
While pandering to right-wingers, Walker said that he was ready to take on ISIS because of his experience busting up unions. Did Scott Walker really just compare unions to ISIS? Is he calling middle class working families terrorists? Extremists? Is it really “extremist” to demand a safe working environment and a living wage from your employer? Scott Walker thinks so.
It’s ironic that conservatives chastise progressives for pushing “class warfare” when their most prominent leaders are literally comparing a fight against ISIS to the fight that must be waged against working class families.
Make no mistake, working America. You are the enemy.
