Let me tell you how important defeating Koch Governor Scott Walker is . . . but first, step into the wayback machine courtesy of the internets (and twitter user @TheNewDeal)

     Vintage Scott Walker talking about once GOP candidate and KKK Grand Dragon David Duke. Walker can beat up on labor rights but he couldn't bring himself to bad mouth another Republican, even if that Republican is a self avowed white supremacist.  

     “The distinction we’re making is not one of saying his issues are extreme, they certainly are not.”
   Back in the 90's, Scott Walker stated that David Duke's views weren't extreme, going so far as to say "they certainly are not"

    Really? Did you get the part about Duke "hiding behind legitimate issues" Does that sound familiar, Present-Day Scott Walker?

    More below the fold

   If Scott Walker defeats the recall election it will embolden every Corporatist politician in America to kick the effort to repeal the 20th century into overdrive, every union busting, privatizing, glad handing corporate sellout politician will be greasing his palms, knowing that they can make life worse for 99% of Americans so they can hand the benefits to the wealthiest 1% with zero political repercussions. Throwing Scott Walker out of office should be the Number One priority for every one not only in Wisconsin, but in America, because Scott Walker is the new prototype Citizens United Koch fueled corporatist overlord that is being unveiled across the USA, a bullshit driven hatchet-man for the billionaires who takes bribes, breaks laws and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Wall Street. This is what Oligarchy looks like. One billionaire to rule them all. Wisconsin deserves better. America deserves better.

   If Scott Walker prevails his corporatist shadow money style of wage suppressing, rights restricting government will come to your state, it was coming anyway sooner or later, the question is when the Wisconsin style shock doctrine hits your state will it be damaged after a Scott Walker loss or empowered by defeating the working class citizens? In a post Citizens United America the concerted weight of a bunch of billionaires on one state's election process looks overwhelming. The billionaires can not be allowed to eat Wisconsin alive, or Michigan, or Ohio or Pennsylvania or Colorado or your state or my home state of New York. Fighting back is the number one priority. Fight like the future is at stake. It is.

   So here is a young Scott Walker downplaying David Duke's extremism, not even making his own character assessment, just speaking the party line as he was told. Wonder what kind of man he will grow up to be?

   Here is the full video if you'd like to watch

   Dear activists, early voting started in Wisconsin today to recall Koch Governor Scott Walker. Please direct me to where and how I and others can help.

Recall Walker

Peace and love to all

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
