Walker Needlessly Deploys National Guard In Milwaukee

Tin soldiers and Walker's comin'
Views:

On Monday, Scott Walker appeared on Fox's The Kelly Files to help blow some dog whistles regarding the racial unrest in Milwaukee. Walker proudly talked about how he ordered the National Guard to be ready to assist but did not deploy them yet. What he didn't talk about was that even as he was saying that, they were being deployed in Milwaukee.

While recent events pale when compared to the race riots in 1967, one cannot help but wonder about the similarities.

Some felt that the authorities were deliberately trying to provoke the black community into rioting so that they could come down hard on them.

Likewise, Walker has taken some questionable actions.

When he deployed the National Guard, it was the second time in less than a year. In December, Walker had also sent in the soldiers to quell a peaceful protest.

However, in 2011, when more than a 100,000 protesters marched around the Capitol building for months, Walker was happy using only the Capitol Police, state troopers and game wardens. Then again, in 2011, most of the protesters were white.

It's funny how Walker said that the state was too broke to pay for good educations for the children, to help people receive medical care, to keep food on their plates or to help through energy assistance, bet had no difficulty in finding the money to pay soldiers to come to Milwaukee to shoot its citizens.
