In a crescendo of darkness the ominous clouds roll in and the horror show begins. Scott Walker,a man under criminal investigation, a man who has shown to be nothing more than a Koch Brothers Puppet has proven one thing… Fascism Owns all of us! In what was to be the most important election in American history, a moment that was the result of the people speaking up, of grassroots protests and mobilizing the likes we have never seen… the Movement that inspired the Occupy Wall St Protests! Before the results they looked desperate the Koch Brothers were on their heels it looked like America could finally break free! And then in the blink of an eye a disaster of epic proportions, what the hell happened? What has caused a man with no popular support to suddenly get over 50% in votes! A place where over millions had repudiated him triggering a recall in the first place! Where do we point the finger? Where is the communication breakdown? The logical reasoning we demand to see the scientific proof? Have we all awoken to to find ourselves whisked into some Bizarro Twilight Zone? Is this a fabrication or a nightmare?
Before we go any further into checking this mess first things first I want to give all the Credit and accolades to the Progressive Movement and the Labor Unions, who fought for this recall tooth and nail against dirty Koch money. Mobilizing support on the ground, getting a grassroots protest in the capital, even inciting a criminal investigation. This Recall was only possible because the Progressives spoke out against Fascism. However now we must turn to why the Recall effort failed, and the truth is one that is going to hurt many. The reason for failure was because of the utter spinelessness of so called Democrats and their leadership! Yes I can sense the ire rising in some but this must be said the Democrat Centrists, has wantonly betrayed the movement once more. When things got heated support vanished. Where was the DNC? Where was the White House and I am not just pointing the finger at Obama it is all of them on the National Level. When the support was needed they all backed down trying to save their hides and looking forward to some PAC money coming in from their own set of Wall St rouges who like to play both sides of the game. Looks like the Goldman Sachs money made them back away from the fray. Once again Progressives had to carry the load from start to finish and in the end the silent spineless capitulation from the “Center” has allowed a Fascist victory.
The second reason for the breakdown is Koch Money Uber Alles! Yes you are seeing the work of the Citizens United Campaign and the Koch shell game that is ALEC do its worse. Throughout the day reports came in of Robo Calls telling people not to vote, and various other lovely tactics. Once again fueled by an endless supply of laundered money these PACS (led by the KOCH Brothers) have managed to buy an election. They continue to sale democracy to the highest bidder and just like they bought the Supreme Court they have bought our right to a fair election. This is another example of unaccountable Koch money run abroad and “We are all Mad as Hell now” This is unacceptable in one evening Fascism rears its ugly head and its embodiment is the Koch Brothers.
Despite all our efforts we have been sabotaged on different fronts. The United States is no longer a Democracy, (well its been heading that way for a while) but now its out in the open and effectively declared itself under Corporate Rule! We the People need to stand up to this, tonight’s Wisconsin debacle is a clarion call, the realization hits us like an anvil to the face. To borrow a phrase from the Koch Brothers.. “We need to take our Country Back!” We need to do this now, the Occupy Movement needs to keep pushing Progressives need to keep pushing. The time for action is now if you are a real patriot, stop waving that flag and supporting killing of innocents abroad and march towards a true defense of the Homeland. Forget about the so called terrorists from abroad and fight the terrorists that live on the inside.
