Scott Walker Planned Wisconsin Fair Riots?

Who says Americans can’t think outside the box anymore?

A self described “former economic adviser” to the Mayor of Oakland (not the current Governor of California for whom some moonbeams are too moonbatty to hire) argues that the Wisconsin State Fair mini-riot was a plot by Scott Walker.  Noam Chomsky watch out — the competition is gaining on you.

My contention, based on that and other examples that could fill a book, is that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was, in some way, behind that so-called Black Youth Attack and worked to benefit from it. It didn’t just happen.

Stay tuned.

Don’t worry, Zennie Abraham.  We will.

    Expect more of this.

    The Obama forces were one of several groups contributing to the “screech in” at the Wisconsin statehouse. One thread of speculation has been that, absent the ability of the president to run on his record, the Wisconsin controversy (with attempted replications in Indiana and Ohio) was intended to create a narrative for ’12: Elect those Republicans and they’ll dismantle your safety net.

    Despite a generous media assist, it didn’t work. Judge Prosser was handily re-elected and the Senate recalls failed to retake that body.

    What’s next? If you inhabit a post-modern world, simply change the narrative. Who knows, reality might just follow.

    The new narrative (actually, the bastard child of the old narrative) was reported this week in Politico: “Kill Romney.” And while you’re at it, kill the Tea Party.

    Democrats at all levels of the food chain are heavily invested here. They have to defend 22 Senate seats and a rout of Obama is likely to shift that body into Republican control. For example, that means that John (“Tea Party Downgrade”) Kerry would lose his Senate Foreign Relations chair.

    Professor, thinking outside the box is one way to describe these risible Walker-did-it comments. Another approach would be call it panic anxiety attacks.

    Alas, Zoloft won’t help here.

    Is his name pronounced “ZAY-nee”?

    Hey, it’s possible. It blew me away when I heard about a trader named “MADE-off”.

    Gosh, it’s hard to argue with such well-researched and documented evidence. Perhaps Mr. Abraham never heard of Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER). I’ll bet they could tell him a thing or two about the rent-a-demonstrator process.
