Has it been that long?

Posted: February 19, 2011 by aliceaitch in Edumakashun, WTF Is Wrong With Wisconsin

Has it really only been 78 years since the establishment of the first concentration camp?

Has it really only been seven weeks since Representative Gabrielle Giffords was shot?  Has it only been seven weeks since the left (with the exception of Pandagon, which of course blamed the shooting on Jared Loughner’s penis) blew up blaming Sarah Palin because her website had crosshairs on Representative Giffords’s district?

Has it really only been three weeks since at least 350 people died under Hosni Mubarak’s dictatorship?

Has it really only been two minutes since someone was sexually assaulted in America?

Are we really asking our students to learn history from ‘teachers’ who have so little sense of the gravity of historical events that they consider it A-OK to minimize death and torture and rape as compared to their paychecks?

Are we really asking our students to learn from ‘teachers’ who don’t understand irony well enough to recognize that they’re camping out in a building where legislation takes place – but the only people who aren’t there are the legislators?

Are we really asking our students to learn from teachers who don’t understand math well enough to recognize that 3.6 billion is a REALLY BIG NUMBER?

Hosni Walker pic from Conchscooter.  Which I’m certain sounds dirtier than it is.  Walk Like an Egyptian and Mubarak for Governor signs courtesy the AFL-CIO’s website.  Hangman picture via Althouse.  The capitol picture has been posted so many times I don’t recall where I found it.  Other pics screencapped from the GOP vid posted on Maggie’s Notebook, which Veeshir was kind enough to point out.

    The difference is…shut up, that’s why.

  2. Storm Saxon's Gall Bladder says:

    Eventually the Union tools will shoot some conservative representative, or someone standing next to one, and Walker will be blamed for provoking it. When elections fail them, and protests are ineffective and cilvil disobediance does not gain sympathy for their cause, they will use violence. Probably by next week. I suppose the MSM appologists are ready to fill in the blanks on the pre-written stories. Because I do look at History and I do remember how Hitler operated.

    (which is how Mugabe operated, and lenin, and Giaus Marcus, and Amtokep I, and the Athenian Alliance and Mooka the Cave Shaman.)

    Yes Storm is quite correct. They’re working themselves into a frenzy and goading each other. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if we started getting violent riots & assassination attempts. It will be excused since Walker “attacked” them first: “It’s a tragedy yes, but honestly what else could they do?”

    I am reminded of the line “the centre cannot hold”.

    YOU SHUT YOUR WHORE MOUTH! Mooka the Cave Shaman was a fucking SAINT! That man saved the lives of half the tribe when all would have died otherwise! How DARE you lump him in with those assholes?!?!
