Tea Party Plans Premeditated FelonyBy Paul I. Tascoupe
Madison -- The kick off campaign to recall embattled
governor Scott Walker kicks off in just four days and with that date
approaching, the tea party has plans of its own. Politiscoop has
received several screen shots of tea party and right wing activists
planning to pass themselves off as those circulating petitions to recall
In one facebook post a user named Charles Atlas Shrugging begins the plan by saying "I'd like to collect signatures of those who want to recall Walker...so I can have something to feed my shredder.."
In another such post Matt Wynns who claims to be a small business owner states "I
shall be heating my home with recall signature. as they sign, I'll make
sure to tell them not to sign another petition. I figure I can get a
hundred to a few hundred signatures off the ballot. F*#&* (Word
The list of disgusting posts go on, even after a user reminded each
and every one of them that their plans would violate Wisconsin statutes.
It makes me wonder if the media will pick up on these plans and make it
public knowledge, just as they did with the Scott Walker death threat
on facebook. I agree all threats are serious and have no place in the
arena, but if I were to compare these posts to the suggestive post about
Scott Walker, I would have to say these are more pointed, planned and
with the intent of harming Democracy as well as
those circulating petitions.
As you click the links below and read their posts, some even suggest
using the castle doctrine as a way to dissuade people taking part in
their democracy. In essence, these individuals are breaking the terms of
service of Facebook by the use of intimidation and or bullying.
Furthermore, these individuals have now publicly planned to commit a
felony in the state of Wisconsin.
Politiscoop contacted the Democratic Party of Wisconsin for a
statement in regards to these facebook posts. Graeme Zielinski the party
spokesman had this to say.
Destroying petitions or engaging in the acts you describe are
serious felonies. However, these threats are intended to sow confusion.
We won't let them win, especially not like this. Petitions will be
clearly marked and the circulators will be identified by a lanyard, but
if anyone thinks they were tricked, they can come to one of our
30-plus recall offices and sign a petition, which we will make sure is
scanned properly and sent to our collection site. But again, the
behavior you describe would be highly illegal.
With the GOP and Tea Party activists going so far to reveal their
plans on facebook, only shows that they have now dropped the gauntlet,
the battle is now on. The grassroots groups in tandem with the
Democratic Party of Wisconsin have set November 15th to begin recalling
Scott Walker. If this story angers you, then contact your local
democratic party recall office and ask how you can help, contribute and
do your part in reclaiming the state. You can also visit their website here.
Here are the disgusting screen shots. Be warned some are very vile.
