Palin Claims Walker Saves Pensions And Jobs; Falsely Accuses Unions Of Violence
Shouting to be heard over an unruly crowd, Sarah Palin appeared at a Madison tea party event to tell the assemblage that Governor Scott Walker is doing the right thing by taking away collective bargaining rights.
Hundreds of labor supporters surrounded the rally, trying to drown Palin out with chants of “Hey-hey, ho-ho, Scott Walker has got to go!” and “Recall Walker!”
“Hey, folks! He’s trying to save your jobs and your pensions!” Palin yelled into the microphone. “Your governor did the right thing and you won! Your beautiful state won! And people still have their jobs!”
Palin then falsely accused unions of violence.
She said she was proud Wisconsin conservatives prevailed against union “hatred and violence” — even though none of the protests in Madison ever became physically violent and only one person was arrested Saturday, for disorderly conduct, police said.
Palin said Walker is working to solve Wisconsin’s long-term budget problems so it can honor pension commitments to public workers.Click here for reuse options!
