Please don’t stop digging

Whoever they are—we hope the dead-enders who show up to yell insults at every public gathering involving Governor Walker keep failing to understand what a favor they’re doing the rest of us.
Every time these people deliberately make themselves obnoxious by trashing a Special Olympics ceremony or a welcome-home event for military veterans, they alienate a few more people who might otherwise have been sympathetic to their cause.
That “cause” can be concisely defined as destruction: Anything Walker supports, they’ll try to wreck, and never mind the details. Of course this binds the Left to a dangerous tactic, confronting people who are celebrating with disruptive screams.
This week union thugs haunted the opening ceremony for Beloit’s Welcome Center:
Anti-Walker protesters, donning masks, props and signs, drowned out most of the presentation by state tourism and local officials with chants of “If you have a spine, resign!” and other sayings some found offensive. Meanwhile, local dignitaries carried out planned speeches and a ribbon cutting.
Hot tip for protesters: Seeking out crowds and trying to spoil things they like probably won’t help your cause.
Wisconsin is playing a lead role in ending roughly 50 years of Left-Liberal governance and reaction is the infantile rage on display
statewide at public events. Ironically, every loudmouth protest helps.
