Scott Walker's Failed Attempt to Kill the First Amendment

Let presidential candidate Scott Walker defend his actions against the First Amendment

That a sitting public servant of Wisconsin claims to he "took on" on families who assembled at the state capitol to protest a secret public policy item is revealing of Scott Walker.

Scott Walker has an anti-democratic conception of what America is and should be, a deranged idea of personal liberty, and is a public servant who has apparently never studied the United States Constitution.

"If I can take on 100,000 protesters. I can do the same across the world," said Walker last February (Cillizza, Washington Post) in claiming his qualification to deal with ISIS/ISIL as president.

This is not Scott Walker misspeaking.

Walker destroyed the First Amendment rights of the people to assemble and voice their disapproval because 100,000s of Wisconsinites disagreed with Scott Walker who bragged he dropped a policy "bomb" by surprise.

The judiciary stepped in and stopped Scott Walker cold, who never apologized or expressed regret, instead offering the imbecilic comparison of ISIS to protesting citizens.

Walker's deplorable tactic of halting speech because of its political content veered into the absurd when his administration ordered citizens in 2013 arrested for looking at a protest, seriously; "spectating," Walker's palace guard called the alleged infraction, only to back off after a hail of criticism.

Walker's and his cops at the Capitol became so hostile a federal judge had to intervene and order that Walker's Capitol police stop violating the Constitutional rights of Wisconsin citizens.

"The Wisconsin Capitol Rotunda functions, both literally and symbolically, as a city center and is fully utilized as a public space to which all have claim." - United States District Court Judge William M. Conley in Michael Kissick vs. Michael Huebsch and David Erwin. (Mal Contends)

Walker wants followers, not citizens. And Walker's administration ordered the capitol police to act as lawless thugs in pursuit to shut down disfavored speech. (Capital Times)

Walker's conversion of several dozen civil service jobs into high-paying, politically appointed positions came with Walker's taking on the Wisconsin people: Cronies v. civil liberties.

This should politically disqualify Scott Walker as a serious candidate for public office, and at the least be examined and challenged as recent history.

Think this is hyperbole. Watch this videos, as the capitol police are walking around the rotunda, harassing people for "spectating" and declaring "you could be subject to arrest."

Here is a video of a lone woman, in her young 20s, being harassed by a capitol cop working for the Walker administration for reasons surpassing comprehension.
