GOP Leads the Way in Criminalizing Opposition to Its Rightwing Schemes

After Scott Walker "dropped the bomb" on Wisconsin citizens, a stark image from February is of a Wisconsin legislator [Nick Milroy (D-South Grange)] being tackled to the ground for trying to get to his office as Walker closed down the capitol.

Republicans are so hostile to the idea of a democratic republic that a judge had to order the Wisconsin capitol open to the public in early March.

Other examples of GOP hostility to democracy abound today.

We expect the GOP to run away from angry constituents.

We expect the GOP to block the civil rights of our fellow citizens. But to target and actually criminalize opposition to the GOP agenda is dangerous and repulsive, though the silence is deafening.
