It wasn't bad enough when it was shown that they are the hangout for sock-puppeteers.
They further sully their own reputations with this posting by Roland Melnick. Melnick thinks it is great sport mocking a guy who was assaulted while trying to defend his wife who was also assaulted:
Badger Blogger: Did you achieve your goals for this event?Apparently, a woman being assaulted is not nearly as important as saving a whopping $10 on next years tax bill or taking a cheap shot for their political candidate of choice.
Bill the shovee: Absolutely…the media focused on me going face first into a bush…which kinda hurt, but, you know…I’m down for the cause…my personal safety is a distant second to our cause. We’re even planning a sit-in/sleepover in a vacant Lee Holloway rental property to raise awareness in Milwaukee.
“John” the shover: Absolutely not…the media focused on me throwing him face first into a bush. Any money I would potentially save if Scott Walker’s budget were to pass will now go toward paying my citations.
For the record, it was already shown that the assailant was looking to stir up trouble.
The kind of behavior is not unusual for that crowd, and it reminds me of another infamous local "celebrity" that got in for suall sorts of hot water for such crude behavior.
Of course, this kind of behavior from these kinds of people is nothing new at all.
But if this is what they consider to be classy, and they don't like me, well, I am perfectly fine with that.
Oh, and cue the sockpuppets in 3....2....1....
