With the ongoing controversy in the Scott Walker`s inner-circle and his desperation to get re-elected as Wisconsin Governor despite losing credibility with many in his own base I have noted that he has re-shuffled his campaign staff as he prepares to take on Mary Burke, who has jumped up in the polls to tie Walker in the public opinion`s minds.

There is no question that Scott Walker has turned the once peaceful and Democratic state of Wisconsin into a caldron of heated wars against its own people, even some families have turned on thier own with the help of the Scott Walker`s inner-circle`s control of the state`s largest media, the Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel that publishes daily pro-Walkers one sided attacks on the poor and the new Health Care law known as ObamaCare and even continues with his draconian Koch mentally against women as he cuts back on a Cancer Program For Low-Income Women, blaming Obamacare.

But now on top of his baby, the John Doe II, and Mary Burke breathing down his neck, we now have some global recognized protestors who come to Wisconsin to offer us their support and expertise on how to do it after having spent two-years in a Russian prison following their protest performance there that we all witnessed here at Daily Kos.

Nearly every day since Gov. Scott Walker announced plans to strip collective bargaining rights from public workers in 2011, protesters have taken to the Capitol building to sing. Last summer the Capitol police cracked down, arresting hundreds of these "solidarity singers," including firemen, teachers, students and teenagers, some of which owe thousands of dollars in citations.

In a video released this week, those singers have found some celebrity support from artists who know a thing or two about being arrested for using music as protest: Pussy Riot's Nadya Tolokonikova and Masha Alyokhina, who famously spent nearly two years in Russian prison following a protest performance. The video likens Wisconsin's free-speech crackdown to Russia's, and urges Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen to drop the citations against the protesters.

“Use music to change the world in the direction you want it to change, because music touches people and makes them act," Tolokonikova says toward the end of the clip, which you can stream below.

                     

It is good that the voices of protest against the Scott Walker`s administration and his band of not so merry hoodlums and convicted felons is loud and clear. It has amazed me how different the citizens of Wisconsin now view Snotty. Even the local media that was so cozy with Scott Walker are now calling on him to respond to the many issues that arose with the release of all those court records that revealed his participation in violating laws pertaining to elections and other shit.

It is good that our next Wisconsin Governor is a woman. It must really hit Scott Walker right in the middle of the gut to accept being tied with a woman in this contest. I`m really surprise that he is not blaming ObamaCare for this nightmare.

It is no wonder that desperation has led him to reshuffle his staff to try to recapture his  Koch poster boy child image as the Republican`s new champion, despite have failed miserably at the GOP hooty-nanny where he came in seventh in a field of Republicans vying for the white house that included nut-cases Cruz, Ryan and others. Finishing dead last at that audition for President of the U. S. of A after Ted Cruz speak volumes.

Any aspiration the Koch Bros, injected into his filth mind is now Kaput, as Putin would say.

P.S. I am here at Daily Kos because Pussy Riot is coming to town.
Peace

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.
