Union In Wausau Backs Down
Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/08/31
This isn’t the end of the story. There will be more to come Monday, rest assured. The Unions have shown no regard for Law, civility, propriety or respect for others. So, expect the Unions to do what they have been doing constantly since this whole thing blew up in their faces: riot, break the law, intimidate, threaten, vandalize property, disrupt, etc. It’s what they know; it’s what they do.
What am I talking about? I’m talking about the story I wrote about yesterday. Union leaders (thugs), in their “infinite wisdom,” decided to punish Republicans by telling them they were not welcome at the Wausau Labor Day parade. The mayor of Wausau gave the Union Overlords an ultimatum: Re-invite the Republicans, reimburse the city, or there will be no parade.
I asked a question yesterday that, even with this Union caving in to reality on this one point, still goes unanswered for the most part.
Are the Union thugs going to continue to act like the spoiled brats they are and decide “if we can’t have it the way we like it, nobody can have it” or are they going to act like adults and permit the Labor Day parade to continue being non-partisan as it ever was? I would like to think the Union thugs would be adult for a change, but I’m not so sure they’re even capable of adult behavior anymore.
Ed Morrissey apparently concurs with my contention, a common sense contention given the Unions’ inability to behave themselves.
Well, they didn’t want to foot the bill for the parade, as Mayor Jim Tipple warned would happen yesterday if the MCLC turned it into a partisan event. It’s only a temporary end to the controversy, though. If Republicans like Rep. Sean Duffy do take part in the parade, you can bet your bottom dollar that protesters will disrupt it with high-profile hijinks in order to get on the local news. Stay tuned on Monday for more on this story.
Thank you, Yorkshire, for the heads-up.
